Venezuela issues ID cards to curtail food hoarding

Prophecy Sign:  The 'mark of the Beast'  - buy or sell 

Venezuela has just given us a perfect example of just what the "mark of the Beast" ID system will be like and how it will work to control the ability to buy and sell.  New ID cards are being rolled out which will track the quantities of food purchased to ensure no one is stock-piling while the country implements further rationing. No ID card, no food purchases.  Just that simple.

It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads,  so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV

Venezuela issues ID cards to curtail food hoarding
Battling food shortages, the government is rolling out a new ID system that is either a grocery loyalty card with extra muscle or the most dramatic step yet toward rationing in Venezuela, depending on who is describing it. President Nicolas Maduro's administration says the cards to track families' purchases will foil people who stock up on groceries at subsidized prices and then illegally resell them for several times the amount. Critics say it's another sign the oil-rich Venezuelan economy is headed toward Cuba-style dysfunction. Registration began Tuesday at more than 100 government-run supermarkets across the country. Working-class shoppers who sometimes endure hours-long lines at government-run stores to buy groceries at steeply reduced prices are welcoming the plan.
