An Astute U.S. Motto

At the New York Times Freakonomics blog, they are voting on 6 word motto’s for the United States.  I have to say, I particularly liked #1.  For years, we have racked up debt in order to have more and more things.  Now, it seems that the bill is due. 

Our solution?  Borrow more for more spending.  In other words, to paraphrase some else (but I’ve forgotten who), “We got into this mess by borrowing more than we could afford so we could spend more than we have.  We’re going to try to get out of this mess by borrowing more than we can afford to spend more than we have.”  Am I missing something?  I hope our friends in Washington know what they are doing, and we need to continue to pray for our leaders.
