Considering that the percentage who said that was around 53% and Obama won 51% of the voting public is it really any surprise?
Is it really a surprise that the same dolts who sent the idiot back to run the asylum for another four years are going to shift blame from their Dear Leader for any and all failures for as long as his great reign shall be?
It’s a disgusting situation indeed, but yet it is a situation entirely of our own making.
For now over 40 years, I, me, you, we, us, that part of America known as the “silent majority”, tried so hard to just “get along” and “compromise” that we never even noticed the water temperature rising a few degrees more each and every year.
We’re now but only a degree or two from full-blown boiling; The end of the grand experiment known as American democracy and the death of an ideal that gave birth to the one thing Obama and his lefties hate the most, “American exceptional-ism”.
Yes, I am disappointed beyond belief at the debacle that transpired the evening of November 6th 2012. But over the past month that disappointment has turned from the melancholy, “woe be us” into a full-blown disgust towards a system that allowed such an anti-American result to culminate in the first place.
I’m disgusted we turned deaf ears to one of the greatest men of the 20th century, the boy from Abilene, the Supreme Allied Commander, the father of our interstate highway system, the 34th President of these United States who over half a century now passed warned:
“……..Crises there will continue to be. In meeting them, whether foreign or domestic, great or small, there is a recurring temptation to feel that some spectacular and costly action could become the miraculous solution to all current difficulties. A huge increase in newer elements of our defense; development of unrealistic programs to cure every ill in agriculture; a dramatic expansion in basic and applied research — these and many other possibilities, each possibly promising in itself, may be suggested as the only way to the road we wish to travel.
But each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration: the need to maintain balance in and among national programs — balance between the private and the public economy, balance between cost and hoped for advantage — balance between the clearly necessary and the comfortably desirable; balance between our essential requirements as a nation and the duties imposed by the nation upon the individual; balance between actions of the moment and the national welfare of the future. Good judgment seeks balance and progress; lack of it eventually finds imbalance and frustration……”
I’m disgusted that on the 71st anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the lessons of Pearl (or much of anything else regarding our history for that matter) aren’t just being ignored or forgotten, they aren’t even being taught to the younger generations.
I’m disgusted that even though the politically elite in Washington D.C. has this country firmly entrenched in at least half of the ten planks of Marx’s famous manifesto, anyone who points out such or calls attention to the danger of such folly is shouted down as a “radical”.
I’m disgusted that the White House and its minion media extension pounced on Mitt Romney for his “gifts” remarks, yet remain eerily silent on the facts as they currently exist today. Facts that were predicted almost two centuries past by Alexander de Tocqueville, all we had to do was listen:
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until a majority of voters discover that they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been two hundred years.”
I’m disgusted with a society that promotes the parasites of society while demonizing the producers that provide the very products and services that the parasites demand as their “fair, and socially just” rights.
But except for one John Boehner (of whom is next up in the que for discussion), I am most disgusted with the fact that just how few roaming those marble halls of power that sit atop the swamp that is Washington, D.C. are standing up for future generations.
There is only one phrase that accurately describes the incessant, irresponsible and quite frankly selfish federal spending that is occurring today:
There are over a quarter of a million words in the English language and yet no other two describe the current federal budget and its political enablers better than the two above.
We have reached far more than de Tocqueville’s tipping point.
For what does it say about a society that while it may lock up it’s sexual pedophiles, it in the very same breath praises its financial ones for just wanting to do what’s “fair” and “just”?
How in the hell can ANYONE with an amount of gray matter greater than that found in your average toad find ANYTHING “fair” or “just” in continuing to shovel out cash and benefits now to burden those not even born today with the tab tomorrow?
(I would throw in the immorality of such behavior, but I learned long ago that putting the concept of morality in the same sentence with the word liberal results in a perpetual oxymoronic loop that locks up the entire system and wreaks havoc among the logical mind.)
So as the disappointment from November 6th, turns into your own list of disgusts with how far America has strayed from her founding principles, please don’t forget those who had absolutely no say in the matter: the generations yet to come.
The generations who had absolutely no say in the matter but had their economic and political freedoms molested all the same.
Molested by a generation of financial pedophiles who cared for but only one thing: themselves.
