Peace is Prosperity, Freedom is Fortune, and Frugality is Wealth
September 23, 2007
So in 2008 another President is elected. He isn’t anyone related to a former President. The United States is heading away from Aristocracy.
“Peace is prosperity,” he tells us. Troops move out of occupied nations and the diplomatic core is doubled in size and quadrupled in training. Sanctions drop away and the words between nations are those of disciplined civility.
“Freedom is fortune,” he announces. People start to get their say about their rights. Courts make good decisions to repeal unjust laws. People feel safe again because they know the law protects them from those who would silence them or would send them to jail without getting their say in court.
“Frugality is wealth,” he proclaims. America begins to grow rich again as she stems the flow of money into money-destructive activities. We manufacture livingry as we drop away our obsession with weaponry. Sustainable energy research makes us an energy-exporting nation as military subsidies to external governments stop. We invest in our children by not robbing them through deficit spending.
After four years of this and encountering lots of resistance, the President declines a second term. People have not been lolled into complacency over the forward progress that has been made, and a new President is elected that carries forward the same goals of peace and prosperity.
