Unwinnable Race

After reading David P. Gushee's excellent article ("The U.S. Warfare State and Evangelical Peacemaking," February 2013), I am led to this observation: The United States will soon put itself—if it has not already—into the same position that Ronald Reagan put the Soviet Union into when, to keep up pace with the U.S., it was required to install a defense it could not afford, leading to its collapse.
