As choleric as I’ve been about this election, I’m actually OK with whichever way it goes. God has a plan, and we’re going to have to wait and see what he has in store.
Will we pick adulthood and hard choices? Or continue to write checks on our overdrawn account? Either way, God works in everything for our good.
Here’s the thing, folks. Things that can’t go on forever, won’t. Our deficit spending is a good example… it WILL stop. It’s a mathematical certainty. Of that, I am absolutely sure.
Unfortunately, with the lack of political courage and reality-based thinking in DC, It will probably only stop when our credit is so debased, and our currency so devalued, that our standard of living has been seriously harmed… perhaps irreparably. Our children may never know the kind of freedom and prosperity that we knew.
I can only control so many things. If the bulk of our citizens decide that money does grow on trees, and that we don’t have to make hard/painful choices, and I’m unable to convince them otherwise, who am I to bemoan the fate they’ve chosen for themselves? The lesson will be learned, whether I’m there to point it out, or not… reality is funny like that.
At this point, I’m along for the ride.
