I won’t lie, the November election was a stinging defeat for Republicans. Only about 1 million more voters voted for Mitt Romney in 2012 than voted for John McCain in 2008, which is completely dumbfounding considering the polls leading up to the election and the state of the economy under Obama’s first term. And that on top of the blow the Supreme Court gave to the American people which removed all pretense that government was the servant of the people. Looking back over these last several months I’ve come to the realization that I simply do not recognize this country any longer.
We as a people are irredeemably envious of everyone around us, spoiled, materialistic, ignorant — of history, of principle, of human nature –, and simply deserve everything we get from this point forward. We are all now slaves to government; a government that restricts and removes our rights and our privacy more and more each day. A government that punishes success and rewards failure. A government that divides us and sets one upon another. And half of the country applauds and asks for more. Our media lavishes praise on and proclaims the very cancer as the “second coming“.
Obama is no second coming, rather he’s the beginning of the end. Obama’s ballyhooed change is all around us. The economy hasn’t recovered from the recession and threat of a double dip is very real because those running the government today do not believe in the very economic forces that drive the economy. Businesses all around the country have reacted and are cutting back the hours of their employees and converting full time jobs to part time jobs in order to skirt around Obamacare laws. Action that will only exacerbate the economic troubles our country continues to face. When combined with the reality of a dwindling workforce and its impact on entitlement spending and the national budget one can’t look at the state of our nation today and feel anything but a deep foreboding.
