The election has locked the United States into socialism. The newly re-elected president has already shut down oil drilling in the west. He appears to be set on a course of deconstructing the nation into a second-rate third-world country. The many groups that conspired to achieve this end will go down with the rest of us. That is the single consolation in this mess.
Democrats have proven themselves the successors to the communist party - as the communist party has already said publicly. They have no loyalty except to being elected and controlling power. That the route they have chosen will unravel the "great experiment" that once was America means nothing to them. They won the election. They manipulated the electorate - deceitfully but effectively. That is all that they care about.
The Republicans are already scrambling to surrender their convictions and go along with the flow, once again, to the detriment of the people, is one of the reasons I could never support them. They say one thing and do what ever the Democrats tell them to. Pathetic and miserable politicians. The sad thing is that there are few representatives of the people in Washington. Just rich people fighting over the scraps of power and wealth, while the rest of us go down the toilet.
By the time a change of power in Washington is possible, policies will be set in stone, and there will be only one opinion, shaded to be sure, but socialist and third-world. I am delighted that I got to live in America while it was America. I am saddened that I lived long enough to see it pass away. I imagine that there is a special place reserved in hell for the media. They betrayed us all and their own fundamental values to battle for the re-election of The President. That reservation in hell is probably not true, but it is a comforting thought to entertain as I weather the bitter disappointment of seeing capitalism rejected and socialism embraced by the majority of this nation, and their (the Media's) willing betrayal of us all to that end.
"Trust not in princes." That is what the Bible says. I place my hope and comfort in the Lord. The politics of man simply demonstrate his venality. Still, the world has lost a wonderful thing, and the date its demise may be marked is November 6, 2012.
I have come to really dislike politics. I cannot bring myself to vote for the "winning" side and voting for the losing ballot each election is really depressing.
