We are all trying to understand what happened on Tuesday. It has taken me a few days, and a bit of alcohol to get over it. We'll survive in the short run. We are not all going to die short of the Mayan calender being right that the world ends on Dec. 21 or SMOD comes crashing down on us.
Take a deep breath, we can get through this, but it may get worse before it gets better. The majority of tf the American electorate has voted for continuation of President Obama's policies, bigger government, higher taxes, and war on business, not to mention war on Christians, but I'll get to that later.
There has been a realignment of the American electorate that has historically been center-right, to a decidedly leftist view. There are a lot of factors here, the youth vote, immigrants, and an increasingly non-white population. Young people voted for "free stuff" that they feel entitled to just because they are here. We have a lot of new voters who are new citizens from foreign countries who bring their culture here, both good and bad, and want the government to do more for them. We have gays, women's rights agitators, race baiters, anti-capitalism Marxists, socialists, and anarchists demanding special rights, and some "occupying" places illegally, with only a shrug of the American people.
Those of us who still pay taxes, go to church or temple, and do actual volunteer work to help the community where we live are in for a rough ride. The takers are in charge now. The House still has a GOP majority, but without a major chance of leadership, we are screwed. The party is run by big government establishment republicans like John Boehner and in the Senate Mitch McConnell. They have to be sent to the back bench and now. If we are not principled, and put up candidates who can say NO to expanding government, and are basically Democrat-Lite, we will continue to lose. If you put up a Democrat against a Democrat-Lite, people will vote for the Democrat.
ObamaCare is here to stay for foreseeable future. This is bad news to all Americans, whether they know it or not. It's already costing jobs, and it is killing pensions for senior citizens and disabled people. Medical care will get worse, and rationed, much like it is in the UK and Canada. There is a reason that there is a huge medical center in Plattsburgh, NY just south of Montreal. I've already been informed that my disability insurance will be terminated in 2014.
So lock and load, make sure you are armed, normal people, the barbarians are at the gate. The "free stuff" won't last much longer, and when it ends, there is nobody to bail us out. It might get really ugly when people who are used to getting free ObamaDollars and free ObamaPhone, and free ObamaCare, when the money runs out and the unwashed masses revolt.
I wish I could be more optimistic, but today I just can not. Take care of yourselves and family, hope and pray for the best, but prepare for the worst. American socialism is not going to end well.
