Ups and Downs

As a nation we are in a slump.  Our economy is stagnant, and American exceptionalism is a shadow of a dream of a bygone era.  The East rises while the West crumbles under the weight of institutional bureaucracies  which corrode the virtues that made Her strong.  But it is not so much the bureaucracy as it is the hollowing of Virtue that is to blame.  The obesity of government is a symptom of a sloven citizenry.  A righteous people will prosper in spite of backwards institutions.

Covenant lands always come with promised blessings and cursings according to the righteousness or wickedness of their inhabitants.  The covenants associated with this land penetrate its very dust; they are immutable.  Prosperity can and will be restored conditional on our embrace of Virtue.
