James Pethokoukis wonders if by preaching doom and gloom, conservatives are bringing on the disaster they fear.
He brings in Jeremiah, who foretold the troubles Israel would have when it ignored God.
The trouble is Jeremiah was right, and those saying everything would be fine were wrong.
And we don't know their names, but we know Jeremiah and his writings.
God showed Jeremiah that Israel was on the path to doom. There was still time to turn around, but they didn't take advantage of it.
If Cruz and crew were silent, the path of spending more than you have still brings disaster.
If people don't listen, at least they heard the truth before the real trouble started.
