In Congress, March 16, 1776

The Intersection of Church and State

What was the mindset of our Founders less than four months before they signed the Declaration of Independence?

if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14

What activity did our Founders do in unison, less than two months before they signed the Declaration of Independence?

U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data links:

Civilian Noninstitutional Population Age 16+

GOP majority 1995-2006:
Civ.Noninst.Pop. Age 16+: ↑ 32.3M
Employed: ↑ 21.2M (66%)
Unemployed: ↓ -0.5M (-2%)
Not in Labor Force: ↑ 11.6M (36%)

DEM Majority 2007-2014:

Employed: ↑ 1.5M (8%)
Unemployed: ↑ 1.9M (10%)

Of the Civ. Noninst. Population Age 16+ ↑ under GOP majorities 1995-2006,
66% ► Employed ↑
-2% ► Unemployed ↓
36% ► Not in Labor Force ↑

Of the Civ. Noninst. Population Age 16+ ↑ under DEM majorities 2007-2014,
8% ► Employed ↑

Under 1995-2006 GOP majority,
66%
of the population ↑ became Employed ↑,
while -2% of the population ↑ became Unemployed ↓
and 36% of the population ↑ became Not in Labor Force ↑

Under 2007-2014 DEM majority,
only 8%

while 10% of the population ↑ became Unemployed ↑ (!)
and 82% of the population ↑ became Not in Labor Force ↑ (!!)

Don’t Blame the Baby Boomers: the only age group which ↑ LFPR & E-PR in the last 8 years!
