Has America Gone Beyond Stupid? posted an article by Drew Zahn, who documented an interview that Alan Keyes had recently with a Nebraska reporter at a pro-life fundraising event. Embedded in this article is a video of the interview of Keyes. Following the video are additional remarks by Sam on the wisdom of the stimulus.

Zahn wrote, “Alan Keyes, a 2008 presidential candidate who is also a plaintiff in one of the many lawsuits challenging Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility to occupy the Oval Office, charged at a pro-life rally that unless Obama's social and economic policies are stopped, the United States as we know it is over . . .

“Keyes' comments included harsh criticism of Obama's policies on immigration, abortion, and the mortgage crisis. He concluded the interview by railing against the president's push for hundreds of billions of dollars in government economic stimulus spending.

"We are claiming that a bankrupt government can save a bankrupt banking system," Keyes said. "The fact that we have just elected an individual – who may or may not be qualified – and he presents silly ideas like this and says, 'Let's move forward now,' and we're all acting like the laws of economics have been repealed and we can actually afford to foot the bill with money nobody's got, this is insane.

"It's got to lead to the collapse of our economy," Keyes declared, "and it's going to."


Congress just passed what is called a stimulus bill and the President has signed it. Can you imagine where this money is coming from? Bonds will have to be sold and interest paid on these bonds. If no one buys the bonds then the money will just be out there at which point the money becomes play money and everyone is in the game.

Solomon writes, “Wise people live in wealth and luxury, but stupid people spend their money as fast as they get it” (Proverbs 21:20 TEV). If a person who spends income as fast as it can be earned is stupid, then what is a person who spends money faster than they earn it. Wouldn’t they be beyond stupid?

How about a nation that spends money faster than it is earned? Could they be called stupid-stupid or stupid squared?

This nation has turned away from God. Instead of living life as God sees fit, following His laws and principles. As a nation America is living contrary to God's revealed will as found in the Holy Bible.

America thinks herself to be wise, but she has actually gone beyond stupid; she has become foolish!
