It was a fair run for a good experiment.
Too bad for the rest of the world, which enjoyed our fierce preservation of freedom. It made it easy for them to be reckless idiots with their personal freedoms. You should have never mistaken Euro-Socialism for a "superior world view" but recognized it as the naivetee common to children of privilege.
No. I'm not leaving my country. My country is leaving me. Little by little. Line upon line. Precept upon precept, it is changing.
Little foxes. (Go read your Bible, bitter clinger!)
I blame the MSM for complicity in becoming an de-facto political action committee. Orwell couldn't have scripted it better.
I blame the Republican Party which has gone along with this for the past eight years, perfectly setting the stage, lulling more citizens into the soft womb of government care. Not for love of people or country, or even philosophically, but for personal financial gain.
Unredeemable bureaucrats, every one. I'm done with the Republican Party. Hopefully, Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent will run as the Moose Party in 2012.
Everyone is saying, "congrats," as though the mountain of illegalities and flagrant law-breaking is "politics as usual." Well, maybe in the New America it will be.
I lived in a Third World country for five years. The Socialist politicians grow very rich, but a curious thing happens: the people grow very poor while they
enjoy endure their free healthcare and government issued milk and cheese. The trickle-up economic theory doesn't work. The black market thrives and becomes the wildest and most unregulated of business models and the anarchists are left with nothing to do.
It's your country now, voters. Enjoy what you make of it.
I won't. Forgive me for having a memory of Camelot*.
*No, not the JFK permutation of that fine Ideal. Although, "Ask not what your country can do for you..." was another fine ideal until LBJ decided to fund all the folks seeking to "do something"
for to their country. With my money.
