Similar boat as you. 28 years old, just scraping by. No real future prospects I’m afraid.
Our generation will turn out to be the worst America has ever had, should there be an America in another 10-20 years.
He may go for broke and destroy it in another 2 years. I consider scorched earth highly likely.
If I were a bit younger, I’d be in tears. I share your hurt, anger, depression. Because I’ve been blessed to live for 68 years in the USA, because I’ve been given a wonderful family, a sustaining faith, wonderful friends, and the invaluable gift of freedom, I can weather this storm.
I believe, fervently, that God has His own mysterious reasons for allowing us (as a nation) to ignore and even, thanks to B.O., deny Him. As a nation, we haven’t learned what we need to. As a nation, we must continue to defend our faith, our freedom. We can do that in prayer. My favorite solace.
There are so many ills we are suffering, in every facet of social intercourse. In education, in economics, in living in truth and reality. We cannot, I will not, succumb to the evil that wants us to give up. We must gather our strength, turn to the Lord, and be the best people we can be.
Don’t give up. Don’t give in. You are blessed with life, with an opportunity to help restore God’s greatest gifts: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If we don’t work toward that goal, then the evil really will conquer.
Keep the faith. Pray.
Relocate to a small town/village in a red state where the cost of living is much less. Get the hell out of the cities.
You young people—please don’t talk this way! I have a son your age, so my heart breaks to hear this. If you don’t know the Lord, please turn to Him. You are worth more than you know, and you are not measured by what this world says you are worth.
We are all on this path. Don’t think you are alone.
