55. No one can be certain that they are right...
In deed, there can be no surer way to prove that you are wrong than to assert your own righteousness so I will not make that ignorant claim. However, there are things that you can know even though others believe you are wrong. Did we not believe Bush and his friends were evil and that he would lead us to disaster? And how was that belief persecuted? Were we not called traitors and weaklings? Did we not believe the war in Iraq was wrong? Were we not despised and ridiculed for that belief? Did we not say that to have a stable economy that capital had to flow and not trickle? And were we not thrown into poverty for that belief? How could we have been so certain that we were right and they were wrong? And yet, here we are today, proven right and they proven wrong... so I guess only time and circumstance will prove me right or wrong on the nature of God. I guess on the day when you make that giant leap into the chasm of death over which all of us dangles then you shall know who was right and who wrong.
