Another Day Older and Deeper in Debt

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 11, 2020

         THE NEW HAMPSHIRE DEMOCRAT PRIMARY IS TODAY AND THE MEDIA FOCUS ON IT AS IF IT WERE A PREVIEW OF THE SECOND COMING OF THE LORD.

         MUCH OF THIS HAS TO DO WITH RATINGS, OF COURSE, BUT A LOT OF IT ALSO HAS TO DO WITH WHERE WE FOCUS OUR FAITH. POLITICIANS ARE TREATED AS MESSIAH FIGURES; PEOPLE WHO CAN DELIVER US, IF NOT FROM EVIL, THEN FROM THINGS SOME PEOPLE REGARD AS EVIL.

         IF THAT WERE TRUE WOULDN’T MORE PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN SOLVED BY NOW? INSTEAD THEY SEEM TO BE GETTING WORSE. PRESIDENT TRUMP THIS WEEK IS PROPOSING A BUDGET THAT WILL COST $4.8 TRILLION AND DRIVE US DEEPER INTO DEBT, WHICH IS ALREADY AT $23 TRILLION. THE INTEREST ON THAT DEBT IS GREATER THAN THE GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT OF MANY NATIONS, BUT POLITICIANS IN BOTH PARTIES EFFECTIVELY BUY VOTES BY OFFERING THINGS POLLS SHOW THE PEOPLE WANT.

         IT’S WHY SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE ARE NEVER REFORMED, THOUGH EVERYONE KNOWS THEY MUST BECAUSE WE CAN’T AFFORD TO KEEP GOING AS WE HAVE OR THESE AND OTHER PROGRAMS WILL SOON RUN OUT OF MONEY.

         DON’T TRUST ANY POLITICIAN. ONLY TRUST GOD, WHO IS IN DEBT TO NO ONE, BUT TO WHOM WE OWE EVERYTHING. I’M CAL THOMAS.
