What if I'm better off today than I was 3 years ago because 3 years ago I was in school and not working, and because of all that hard work, I graduated and got a job in my field of study? The president had nothing to do with that.
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
I think the smartest words that a US president has ever said about our personal well-being came from a Republican. A fellow by the name of Abraham Lincoln: "Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
(Of course, the quote is somewhat ironic, given that he struggled with depression his entire life, but the sentiment is correct. )
