New numbers have been released that foreclosures are on the rise in major metropolitan area's. What? I thought we were in a period of economic recovery? It would seem that the words of Obama Christ are not showing the truth in reality.
Ultimately, there is plenty of evidence on the ground level of this country that government cannot and is not being a savior for the economy. It never has, and never will be able to do it, nor should it. People cannot overspend on homes, and expect for the government to save them. The same goes for corporations and state governments who have mismanaged their resources and made bad financial decisions that lead them to where they are. It is a bad idea to dump all the problems onto the federal government because all we are left with is a garbage dump of a government.
Government spending is out of control to the point that our nation is on the brink of foreclosure itself. That is the real state of the Union. Our government has gone past the point where they can say, "we need to stop spending." Stop spending is not an option? How is not spending when we have no money, not an option?! The government is past the point of being able to service its debts, and its people are following that lead.
Right now people are loosing their homes. Some are loosing their homes because they were greedy. So, lesson learned. Some are loosing their homes because they have lost their jobs. What doesn't make sense to me is we have people loosing their jobs on one hand, yet I see job openings all over the place. Name one state or county that doesn't have a job board filled with job opportunities.... go ahead I'm waiting.
There are jobs. There are opportunities for entrepreneurship. Perhaps the real crisis in this country is not lack of employment, it is lack of humility. So what if times are tough - be tougher! If you are loosing your home, guess what, is working in fast food worse than being homeless? Is delivering pizza to make ends meet worse than eating in a soup kitchen? There are jobs, perhaps we should be willing to work the fields (instead of the illegals) to provide for our families.
Perhaps our country isn't being humbled enough, hence this second wave of foreclosures. Perhaps people should be homeless if that becomes the means for them to appreciate what they had when they had when they had it. Opportunity is still all around us - but foreclosure is still happening. Perhaps we should stop looking to mommy and daddy government to save us, and grow up as a people.
