Checks & Balances

 

The government

has checks

but no balance

 

you would think

a zero balance

would be a natural check

on carefree spending

 

but our government

rejects that notion

without blank checks

it cannot function

 

to the government

it only means

write more bad checks

and spend even more

the whole concept is

out of balance

 

what kind of parent

would pass their debt

onto their unsuspecting

kids and grand-kids

 

a rotten thing to do

but we have done it

we spend like there is

no tomorrow

 

we forget that

tomorrow

is only a day away.

Government by its nature is corrupt
the politicians and bureaucrats get the gravy
the taxpayers get the shaft!

Money is representative of wealth in other forms that can be called
on as collateral. The richly endowed nations know this and spend
accordingly, always a guarantee of political popularity wherever
it happens - and so the process proceeds while supply and demand
fluctuate according to "need" and "fashion".
