Mailvox: avoiding the chip

TJ doesn’t want to get chipped:

Do you see any way around this? My first idea is to get out of this country while the getting is good.

It’s important to keep in mind that Christians have been expecting the end times for 2,000 years, and so far, they’ve been wrong every time. The historical odds are that the equation of implantable chips with the Biblical mark is incorrect. That being said, most Americans aren’t aware of how far in advance of the rest of the world we are in terms of going cashless.

Only the UK comes anywhere close to our bias towards electronic payments and you can pay cash for a new car everywhere from Italy to Norway without anyone blinking an eye, much less filing a government report on you. Until quite recently, one could buy a cell phone without providing ID as well, although that’s changed under pressure from US authorities.

But if the mark is not some sort of metaphor but truly is a mandatory cashless currency implant, at this point one would have to assume that it’s going to begin in the United States. This is because Asians an Europeans don’t like credit cards; debit cards are about as far as they’ll go, and despite the EU’s average tax on savings at 53.5 percent, Europeans still sock away much more money than Americans do. German households, for example, save 11 percent of their after-tax income compared to less than 1 percent by their American counterparts. This is tangential, to be sure, but is indicative of a mentality not likely to be easily swayed by the current marketing appeals of Verichip and other advocates of cashless currency.

Anyhow, it’s a point to ponder, since most Christians have long assumed that the USA was the last and best defense against one-world government, not where the ball would start rolling.
