America & Pharaoh - Similarities

I was just noticing that America is doing the same as Pharaoh during the 10 Plagues. Pharaoh kept ignoring the signs of his country's downfall at the hands of Hashem - due to his stubbornness to keep the Bnei Yisrael as slaves. He kept making false promises and going back on them when the storm cleared.

America is doing the exact same thing. They are ignoring the fact that the current economic situation was caused in no small part by a false Congress passing corrupt laws full of spending money that was non-existent. They are continuing to do the same thing by increasing their "budget caps" enabling them to spend more virtual money - further plunging the country into debt.

It never ends well...America needs to pay attention and learn from history. We need to learn that Hashem does things to get us prepared for the future.
