Congratulations, conservative friends and all the political pundits who fought a good fight to save this country. Your work was not in vain. It resulted in the realization that we are no longer a nation of two parties. There are now two Americas.
Welcome, my friends, to the new underclass: the working taxpayers—-the ones who will bear the burden going “Forward”.
America is now the home of the greedy and the land of the brown.
Congratulations, Obama supporters, who believe they won. Too bad we all lost. Too bad they don’t know it yet.
They believe that now that the evil Republicans—known as “the party of angry old white men”, thanks to media bias—have been defeated, all will be safe from harm.
It is hard to comprehend how they can bask in the glory of re-electing a man with a record of failure to continue leading us on an unsustainable path.
Today, they are the lucky ones. The rest of us know better.
Obama, the latest Father of Big Government, is officially still their Daddy. Those receiving “entitlements” want to keep on getting what they believe they deserve. They want the “free” Obamacare that comes with more strings than a harp.
They don’t care about holding the line on government spending or a balancing a budget. Or Obama’s failed energy policies; bogus bailouts; faux job report numbers; soiled foreign policy; or his four years of failure.
Now that Wal-Mart has layaway, their kids will get everything on their Christmas lists and all will merry and bright for a while.
Then, in January, when the Bush tax cuts end and the Obamacare taxes kick in, the layoffs will begin and unemployment figures will rise; the cost of living will continue to increase; the national debt will accumulate even faster; and the entitlement programs will be cut.
Ron called this last November. He said, “The problem is that the end of the road is here, it culminates in a cliff, the one toward which we’ve been racing for years, and over which we have probably begun to tumble.”
He knew the demographics had changed and thought that Obama would be re-elected. “We might as well get on it,” he added.
Although the Democrats may have won the battle, it is up to us not to lose the war.
The Voice of Reason is gone but he would want the truth to still be told.
Let’s start with the Dow Industrial Average post-election closing numbers today: down 312.95.
Hang on. Even though it’s going to be a bumpy ride, we might as well get on with it.
