A relevant quote for the morning after:
"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former." --Albert Einstein
On Monday I wrote that in addition to the fiscal cliff we are on, we are surrounded by enemies that are now emboldened by the reelection of Barack Obama. Our allies -- especially Israel -- should be quaking in its boots with the whirlwind we are about to reap. In that post, I added an epigraph where Abraham Lincoln states that "if destruction be [America's] lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."
Let us pray, truly sincerely pray, that all the things we have been warning about do not come to pass, because I think we, as a nation, committed suicide last night.
