Rav Avigdor Miller on Keep America Rich

Q: Why did Hashem make United States such a rich country?

A: Why did Hashem give prosperity to America? Now that’s a question you’ll need Hashem to answer, but I’ll take my little one cent brain and I’ll say a svarah. I’ll say that it was because America allowed the Am Yisroel to come here and gave them opportunities to live with full rights. Other countries didn’t do that all the way back; but America, right from the beginning, gave us full rights.

In addition, America was once a decent country. At first, America was a very moral country. You still see on the coins, “In G-d We Trust.” I don’t know how long it’s going to last. The Supreme Court one of these days will strike it down. Imagine such a thing – a country that writes on its coins, “In G-d We Trust” They deserve a reward just for that! So America at one time deserved all this prosperity. What’s going to happen in the future, I cannot foretell.
