I was born too late to experience the horrors and deprivations of the first two World Wars (1914-18 and 1941-45).
But I’ve read enough history to realize that any talk about World War III must be serious–especially with nuclear weapons.
Since the recent killing of Qassem Soleimani, the terrorist head of the Iran’s elite Quds Force, some commentators have stated that Donald Trump brought us to the brink of World War III.
That would be ugly.
But I know of another World War III that could be far more devastating than atomic bombs…
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?
