Guys, it’s

NOT just the House that will almost for sure flip!

I think that we have right now a chance for a renaissance. If there are significant numbers of “budget hawks” elected to the House and the Senate flips, we may see some actual progress. Not much, since Joe Biden or Kamala Harris would be President, but enough to at least stop the budget bleeding (though the actual curative and corrective treatment would have to wait for Trump and/or DeSantis in 2024).

Guys, we had BETTER

get serious about this crap! Because it is a real threat to the country. It can’t go on forever, and it won’t.

We are now at crisis levels. Democrats blithely spend and spend, and all too often Republicans go along with it. With varying degrees of enthusiasm, yes, but they are willingly complicit.

It’s the classic “tragedy of the commons” studied in economics: ALL gains are personal, while the costs are spread out among us.

But the “tragedy” is indeed coming. It can’t NOT come. I have no faith at all that Democrats will ever reign in spending, and very little that Republicans will. These folks are focused on the short-term. But eventually, the long-term catches up!

It’s probably not quite too late right now. But the precipice is rapidly getting closer, and it is certainly in view right now. PUT ON THE BRAKES!
