I suppose most Americans are putting the election season behind them as the holiday season approaches. Besides, concerning yourself about the future is….well, exhausting! I mean, you can only do so much!…
Unfortunately, that’s just it. We didn’t do much. We didn’t do much, at all. We foolishly returned a self styled threat to the White House. Essentially, Congress remained unchanged. Therefore, more…crap…for lack of a better word…can be expected for the next four years.
Americans, as a whole, have lost their determination and their sense of direction. Granted, most of that is due to the malfeasance of a dysfunctional government. But, not a lot can be said for an ignorant, poorly educated, and gullible electorate. As is commonly espoused in conservative media: which is worse…Barack Obama…or the voters that elected him? They’re intertwined and each practically owes its existence to the other. Mitt Romney was right…Barack Obama basically assured his second term by promising various groups of Americans one thing or another. Most of which will literally come at the expense of other Americans.
In the meantime, we have a Republican party going over the cliff…to borrow a timely reference…as it tries to figure out what to do next. Of course, a good bit of the electoral defeat was brought on by its own policies. That being said, the core premise and belief of MOST who consider themselves as such is limited government…economic liberty…and simple, common sense. Absolutely NONE of that has any value or meaning to today’s Democrats. Quite the opposite. Such beliefs are to be ridiculed and scorned.
So, what do we do? I suppose it may be part of the conversation over the Thanksgiving holiday. What comes next? One thing you can count on…Barack Obama will continue his rule by discourse. He feels he’s been giving a mandate..which NOTHING could be further from the truth…to punish the opposition and to dictate his agenda with little, if any, alternatives to consider. Remember, as he so eloquently put it..”I won..”
As we look around, there’s not much left in America to value…to treasure. Much of our national character has been diminished by our own hand. Our malaise and disregard for ANY difference between right and wrong has finally caught up with us. Sadly, most are too preoccupied to care. And it’s reflected in Washington. We truly have reached a turning point. Unfortunately, as this year’s elections are clearly an indication of that, we’re a nation of has beens.
It was great while it lasted….
