You can no more break the laws of economics than you can break the law of gravity. Try if you must, but the outcome is certain: Rather than break such laws, you break yourself against them. And if, against all sense, you try it again, the result will be the same. Doubling down on ignorance and failure means more ignorance and more failure, not success.
By re-electing Barack Obama, the American voters have doubled down on ignorance and failure. They obviously think the boneheaded policies that led to:
(1) higher unemployment,
(2) lower household income,
(3) more jobs going overseas,
(4) the greatest one-term growth in national debt in history,
(5) expanded intergenerational dependency on the state,
(6) trillions of dollars of fiat money flooding the market place, and
(7) millions more persons living in poverty and on food stamps
will magically lead to something completely different in the future.
It’s not going to happen.
If you still think that the most partisan president is really the post-partisan president, then don’t be surprised if partisanship flourishes even more in the next term than it did in the last, when the Republicans were literally locked out of health care reform discussions and debates, and when every budget passed by the Republican-led House was killed in the Democrat-led Senate – every one. If that’s what you think about partisanship, you are not thinking at all. You are not even paying attention.
If you think that the Democrats, who failed to pass even one budget in four years will suddenly start passing them now, much less governing according to those budgets, you are part of the problem, not the solution.
If you think that the politically motivated failure to protect our own land and personnel overseas against terrorist attacks on the anniversary of 9/11, despite repeated and desperate pleas for help coming from the victims themselves, and that the Obama administration’s craven lies and misdirection that for weeks followed the slaughter will make for a safer America or a safer world, you are the Jihadist’s dream come true.
If you think that a culture that slaughters its babies for convenience or for money won’t slaughter its elderly for the same reasons, then please don’t be surprised when you, your friends, or your family are eventually disposed of by the very bureaucracy charged, ironically, with national health care. Your capital offense, the thing that lowers the death sentence upon you: Getting older and getting expensive. When the choice is between you and money, and when the government has no money, you die. Please notice: the government has no money.
If you think that Barack Obama failed so miserably in his first term because he inherited a mess, then how can you expect anything but proportionally greater failure from him when he tries to fix the even greater mess he inherited from himself?
Or, if you want it in an epigram: “If you fail to learn the easy way, then you are doomed to learn the hard way, if you learn at all.”
