I am not an economist and in this article, won’t pretend to be. Economic theory often confuses me–but I’m not alone. Our nation is 23 trillion dollars in debt and very few seem to care.
But I am an American, a parent and a follower of Christ involved in helping people improve their circumstances by the blessings of God–both in this life and the next.
Thus, I’m concerned that as we reach the twenty-year mark of the 21st century (2020), most young adults I know can’t afford to buy a house in the wealthiest nation on earth.
I think I know why.
Even before Donald Trump became the president of the United States, a “Resistance Movement” began forming throughout our nation’s political hierarchy to block his leadership and policies.
Hillary Clinton trumpeted the need for “Resistance” after her Electoral College defeat and many Never-Trumpers from both political parties simultaneously joined the chorus.
This week the resistance movement in the House of Representatives, under the leadership of Congressman Adam Schiff, D-CA, opens impeachment hearings on the president. This follows two-and-a-half years of the fruitless Mueller investigation.
Other than being a gigantic waste of the public’s time and money (shouldn’t we be solving important national problems?), I have one simple question:
What are they resisting?
For many years I was confused over the difference between a vision statement and a mission statement.
Eventually, I sorted it out and now teach courses on this subject at Faith International University.
Allow me to use our nation’s birthday–the 4th of July–to settle in your own mind the difference between vision and mission. We will do it through the eyes of the Declaration of Independence.
It’s our American Vision (Statement). Do you share it?
