Where do you think the government got the money for the Stimulus Package to begin with? It came out of our tax dollars. It came out of us. It came out of the nation's economy. And if the government gives us back some of our tax dollars, it isn't as if they're giving us something new. The government took it from us in the first place.
Giving back what you previously took is not a gift; economically speaking, it's a wash. I has no effect whatsoever on the economy. It can only help the citizenry in a very temporary emergency situation, but it cannot and it will not sustain the citizenry for very long, and it certainly will not allow the citizenry to "get ahead" or "profit" or "do better" in any way. As an emergency one-time-shot it can keep some from drowning; but if it is repeated and kept up, it will cause mass drowning.
The reason is involved in the sole source of new wealth. Wealth originates with the citizenry, not the government. The government has nothing it didn't take from the citizenry in the first place. The government cannot make new wealth at all. Governments deal in wealth, but they do not create it. Only free citizens make new wealth, and the freer they are to do it, the more of it they will make.
The natural law principle of wealth origination is what makes Capitalism work and what drives the wealth of nations. It is why America, as a nation, is richer than every, any and all less capitalistic nations.
President Trump understands this, and the rest of Washington today, in varying degrees, opposes the very idea, or is ignorant of it. It is perhaps too simple an idea for the elitist mind to grasp, and the Leftist mind opposes it, because the Leftist mind hates Capitalism and loves Socialism: the exact opposite and antithesis of Capitalism.
Nevertheless, governments cannot make new wealth; governments may only take new wealth, once it is created. That's why the government cannot financially support the people; it is quite the other way round.
The Chi-Comm Virus is a global emergency, sure enough; but statistically speaking it cannot yet be shown to be anywhere near the danger to man as was the Swine Flu or many other pandemics, and none of them ever shut down whole economies and the whole private enterprise of nations. Doing that, in and of itself, will cause deaths.
Saying that the Chi-Comm Virus is a menace that must be appropriately dealt with does not meant that it should be allowed to be turned into another Marxist, hair-on-fire, run-for-your-lives Emergency situation requiring the suspension of all Constitutional rights and the liberty of man.
The Chi-Comm Virus is not a crisis that can only be resolved by government alone. Indeed it might better be resolved by the private sector. Trump and the wisely assembled Trump Team that is dealing with the Chi-Comm Virus seems to see this more clearly than anyone else at the moment.
The rest of Washington is already talking about another larger Stimulus package, of four trillion dollars, and even of six trillion dollars. As if the government even had that kind of money. they're talking about spending more money on Economic Stimuli than they currently take in in tax dollars for a whole year's federal revenue.
Just where would they get this money? Print it?
And go the way of Venezuela, or pre-WWII Germany?
Note this very well, despite any claims to the contrary that may be made by the loony-tune Communist Congressional Bitch Squad:
Start printing more dollars to solve some political problem and the value of the dollar will go right down the drain, and it will take a wheelbarrow full of dollars to buy a loaf of bread, and how a the well-dressed middle-class citizenry will soon be scavenging through garbage for food.
"Stimulus" thinking in today's Chi-Comm Virus crisis threatens to morph into Obamunism Part II. It is driven by the Marxocrat Party and the Marxocrat Media, with the "bipartisan support" and cooperation of the Globalists, the Never-Trumpers and the deep-cover Statists in the Republicrat Party and the Libertarian Party.
Among the Economic Catastrophe Pages we recorded how the 2008 economic crisis was, first, caused by a Marxocrat Party dominated American government, and then, pretended to have been resolved by that same Marxocrat government; but it wasn't resolved at all. All that happened was that America was moved further out from under her own Constitution, more out of natural free market Capitalism, and deeper into unnatural and government imposed Socialism.
And how many Marxocrat voters liked it, and got used to it, and wanted more of it, and could not see the forest for the trees.
We have tried to show, in the Death Rates, in the Wrecking of America and Pandemic Statistics pages, among others, that we cannot look solely at the medical solutions to the Chi-Comm Virus crisis. We should look at it first, yes, but not to the exclusion of the ulterior motives of the Left.
We tried to show the actual figures in the Proper Perspective page and the GP (General Practitioner) page, but the fake news media just keeps hyping the People are Dying! People are Dying! Marxocrat Political Panic.
Everyone is trying to get us all to put blinders on and look only at the virus, and not at the economy, and not at what's happening to our Constitution, and not at how enemies of America, foreign and domestic, are capitalizing on yet another crisis and using it to destroy us as a nation and as a distinct people. To conquer us, from within.
Maybe you don't want to recognize the fact, or even consider it, that such personages as Pelosi, Schumer, Bernie, Biden, etc., essentially the whole Marxocrat Party, would seek to use this crisis to destroy Constitutional America and establish a dictatorship in it's place, but I'm telling you, that is what they hope to do, and what they are trying very hard to do.
And there are enough deep-state Republicrats, Never-Trumpers and Globalists in opposing Parties who will support the Marxocrats in "Stimulating" us out of this panic-caused economic crises, if they think it will help get Trump out of office. Including all the criminal conspirators against Trump who just don't ever want to be found out and eventually prosecuted for their participation in the impeachment treason.
We don't need another, or any, economic stimulus.
What we need is to go back to work.
There is no reason that we cannot quarantine ourselves and quarantine the most endangered among us ourselves, and still go to work and make a living. We just need to apply simple common sense here. And we need to go back to the original American principles of Federalism and Subsidiarity.
The Federal Government cannot do everything. We The People can do much.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

The problem isn't government and taxes. All citizens in a democratic republic expect to pay taxes in return for the protection of their rights and property. The problem is the practice of usury. As Michael Hoffman reports in his book: "For most of the first 1500 years of Christianity usury, the lending of money at interest, was unanimously condemned by the Fathers of the Early Church, and by popes, councils and saints, as a damnable sin equivalent to robbery and even murder."
Why? Because usury is a rigged procedure, a financial slight-of-hand that results in covert theft by the lender. Usury was legalized in the U.S. on December 23, 1913 with the signing of the Federal Reserve Act, previously known as the Aldrich Plan. Usury is why we are in debt those crooks who own the private banking system called the Federal Reserve Bank. It is not federal. There are no reserves. We the People will never, EVER get out of their debt until we revoke the Federal Reserve Act, annihilate the Federal Reserve Bank and return to Article I, section 8, Clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States.

Agree with everything you say about the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and the establishment and continued existence of the FED.
But you are misinterpreting the word usury as used in Scripture, in which it meant Interest. And followers of the law were not to charge interest - to their brother. The term brother was not restricted to siblings, but to all who lived in peace within your house, or even within your nation. If you were not in the money business, you were not to lend money (or anything else) expecting to profit from it or be paid for the use of it. Thus interpreted, it meant thou shalt not charge usury to thy neighbor.
But the many places in Scripture that mentioned Money Changers was talking about, essentially, the bankers of that day. Men who were in the business of money exchanging, money lending and money investing. This was (and is) not the same thing as your neighbor or your relative needing assistance, or asking for a loan from you out of need. Jesus' anger at the money changers in the Temple was not for what they were doing, but where they were doing it, which was in the Temple.
When He told the parable of the talents, He included this line in the parable:
Your banker, or your money changer, is not your brother or your neighbor when you approach him to make a deal. He is a business man and money is his business.
He is only a sinner if he charges usery to his neighbor or brother for any personal non-business transaction; or, if he cheats.
And cheating, I believe, is what the FED does. With our treasure.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
