The Whole World’s In Your Hands

For me, this November’s election is about our children’s future:  do we want to leave them with a deficit, or do we want to leave them a planet with air they can’t breathe, with food shortages, with rising oceans and heat no human can bear?

I choose the former.  This does not mean I am deficit-happy, I am not.  I read the papers, and a Nobel prize winning economist (Paul Krugman) says we need to spend our way out of this.  Other observers of our political system say that Congress knows what they should do, they just won’t do it.

So here we are:  better off than Europe, and able to solve our own problems pretty much all by ourselves, but we choose to be afraid, the media prophesies doom, and our “job creators” are sitting on three trillion dollars which could help pave the way (pun intended) to economic good health.

I have been visiting a friend in Santa Fe and their roads are almost as bad as Hawai`i’s.   As the President and others have pointed out, fixing the nation’s crumbling infrastructure would means lots and lots of jobs.  Congress knows it, and would prefer that we circle the drain.  Their beloved Keystone pipeline will not do nearly as much, and it may be one of the things that puts the environment in peril.  Fresh water anyone?

The incentives for big energy (aka oil) companies to move in a different direction have so far been economic, not moral.  And our invisible government, Wall Street (my great grandmother wrote this to Harding in 1922) supports them.  I wonder, does Jamie Dimon have children?  Are they going to live in Gingrich’s colony on the moon?

This past week we have been told by the scientific community that we are close to the tipping point in saving our eco system.  That may not mean much to old folks like me, but my grandchildren are being held hostage to our craziness … we really don’t give a damn about them, they are just another “good reason” for not doing what we should.
