Here is the question. If God is truly punishing the United States for its sins, then why does God seem to disapprove of the State so strongly? The passage above suggests that God hates State established borders (although not individual borders established by the property owner, who inherited or bought the land on which they live on). If the State can draw the borders, it makes the idea of owning property illegitimate, for the State now holds a monopoly on not only the land but also the very people within its confines. Within these confines, the State needs a symbol and a force to back that symbol (leader), especially the kind that involves a military force supported by taxing its very citizens to protect and suppress.
