…make a bitter wine indeed.
I’ve always believed we get what we deserve. And we have re-elected President Obama for second term.
Many of the Conservative Pundants are finding small victories to make themselves feel better this morning because they simply do not want to believe we are a Nation of Dependants. Well.. we are a Nation of Dependants.
The Socialists have won a very important victory. They have preserved the Crown Jewel of Socialism… Nationalized Health Care. Woodrow Wilson, Teddy Roosevelt, Norman Thomas, FDR and a slew of modern Leftists should be pleased wherever they might be. The only challenge remaining before we slide into waiting lists and rationed care is in 2014 when the taxes are finally implemented to “pay” for it. Keep in mind you will have millions of people, not to mention a huge bureaucracy, hooked on the government dole by that point.
Considering Socialized Medicine was all that remained of the Socialist agenda. I guess what I’m trying to convey here is we, the U.S., are now a European Social Democracy. If you think that might not be so bad, or are unsure of what that means, Lenin writes effusively on the glory of Social Democracy. Whip out your googler.
So what have I learned?
I have learned that I stand with a very small minority. I must resign myself to this fact. The Majority I tend to vote with seems to continue finding favor in people like Romney. Don’t get me wrong… Mitt Romney is a nice man, but he is far from having a solid foundation in Free-Markets and Free-Minds. This is demonstrated to me by the fact Mitt could barely get 70% of the primary vote… even after he was declared the nominee. In other words, roughly 30% of the primary voters disliked Romney enough to get into their cars, drive to the polls and vote against him, when they could have just stayed home. At the end of the day, I will keep promoting “More Reagan, Less Rove…” and continue fighting my battles in the primaries.
So what have we learned?
Nothing we didn’t already know. If you give enough people “free” cell phones, “free” food stamps, “free’ money through years of unemployment without the demand they search for work and “free” health care you will get their allegiance. This is a fact… and it makes me sad.
Don’t read this missive as angry, it’s not. Read it as the type of sadness associated with having that which you didn’t want to believe confirmed to be true before your very eyes.
So, congratulations to President Obama. He deserves to hold this office. He is delivering exactly what the electorate wants.
The Republican Party has a problem… and hopefully they know it. They have embraced the idea of compromise and bipartisanship giving us candidates like Mr. Romney. And Voluntary Cooperation, Free-Markets and Capitalism has been lost. The great experiment is over.
It should be of note that the “Taxed Enough Already (TEA) Party” candidates continue to win elections when they hold true to a Constitutionally Conservative governing theory…. Just as they did in the 2010 mid-terms. I suspect this will be lost on folks like Rove and Morris who will perpetuate the concept that the only way to victory is to adopt the balkanization of the population practised so deftly by the Left. And the drip, drip, drip of Alinsky Radicalism will keep winning to the detriment of our ever Diminishing Freedom.
This isn’t the end of the world… just the end of Capitalism.
I suggest we keep having the conversations we’ve had as of late with our friends and family so that in a hundred years there might be a couple of us left to start our story’s; “I remember when…”
