Because of hope, there is no hope

Tomorrow I am going to win the lottery. I know this because I purchased a lottery ticket and I am hopeful that I will win.  Sound silly? Why is that any sillier than believing that things will be fine regarding our  economy as long as, or because, we are hopeful? Are Obama’s actions going to give us good results because we are hopeful? It seems that things have gotten so bad that subconciously most of society knows that our bad actions will have negative consequences, so we have resorted to “being hopeful”. Confidence, positive thinking, hope… these things do not put the effects of our actions on hold. Think what you want but what happens will happen regardless of what we are thinking. Excessive spending and a lack of efficient production will cause us to run low on resources and no amount of hope will change that.
