God told his prophet Jeremiah at Jeremiah 10:23 "It does not belong to man who is walking to direct his own steps. Only through God's Kingdom can man achieve his full capacity of his freedom."

Two kinds of things that impede attempts to balance budgets are poor investments and thieving officials. Ventures whose futility can be seen a mile away are inexcusable. Naturally, so is the dipping of corrupt hands in to the cookie jar, which oddly enough also has a tendency to do a great disservice to public funds. In some cases, it's as simple as making decisions rooted in common sense and well just not committing crimes.
