The only hope I've had in the last 4 years was when I thought Romney would win, maybe get a Senate majority and fix this mess, and pull us back from the collapse being caused by Obama and the Progressives. My hope is shattered now.
This is the way I feel tonight:
The photo is of a Frenchman in the streets of Paris after Hitler's armies invaded.
They're destroying my country.
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, Socialist Party presidential candidate 1936-1968, co-founder of the American Civil Liberties Union
“We can’t expect the American people to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism UNTIL they awaken one day to find they HAVE COMMUNISM.” – Nikita Kruschev, 1959
“There is no such thing as a liberal...There hasn't been for a long, long time. I never use the word and you shouldn't either – nobody should. 'Liberal' is what socialists call themselves when they don't want you to understand that they plan to take away your rights, your property, and eventually your life.” – Alexander Hope
“Your children will live under communism.” Khrushchev said.
“On the contrary,” Secretary Benson replied, “My grandchildren will live in freedom as I hope that all people will.”
Khrushchev then retorted: “You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept Communism outright; but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have Communism. We won’t have to fight you; we’ll so weaken your economy, until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.”
So here we are. It's arrived. 1913-2013. The 100 year Great Progressive March “Forward” ( Obama's campaign slogan was taken directly from Mao ) has finally succeeded in bringing America down. Without firing a shot. Having just heard that Obama is projected to have won another term, I find myself fighting back against allowing suicidal feelings, as I imagine many others are right now.
The numbers of votes by which he “won” many of these swing states was so thin that we might say that the dead re-elected him. It may be true. We may actually find it to be true later, if anyone is still interested, but it will be too late.
I'm not sure exactly what, if anything good, I personally have to look forward to in the next four years. I've pretty much lost all hope at this point, and nothing will change, except for things to get much, much worse. You'll soon think of these as “the good old days”.
So what is there to actually look forward to now?
Well, Dear Leader will be unimpeachable, being it appears that the Senate will remain in the control of the Democrat-Socialists. So he can do anything he wants, pretty much like he has the last four years. Congress is a potted plant, he just issues the orders. You will obey. And hope that he doesn't call down a drone strike on you.
You may as well forget about his orders for our military to "stand down" in Benghazi.
He's Dear Leader, he gives the orders, if you don't like it, too bad. Nancy Pelosi will march through the streets with her gavel, laughing at you.
He lied, people died? Too bad. Unimpeachable.
I suppose we need to quit quoting the Constitution – it's fiction now and it's dead.
And you'd better not say or write anything that might offend muslims! It will probably be made illegal.
He will now only worsen the strangulation of our domestic energy production. New EPA regulations are about to come out after the elections, which will crack down even further on coal and fossil fuels. His "War on Coal" will be won – there will be no more domestic coal production. It's one of the few promises he made that he will keep.
Those in the coal producing states who voted for him will deserve what they get. I can only hope that any coal worker and unionist who voted for him, will never work again.
So expect gas and electricity prices to keep rising until you may spend half ( why not 3/4? ) your income just to drive, and heat and cool your home. The 51% of our electricity production that comes from coal will be phased out.
None of that new safe clean nuclear power will be allowed either. You know, the stuff that could power this whole nation for 2 billion years?
We've now abandoned all hope of ever being able to hire for our small business here. We'll be lucky if we can just stay in business another four years. I know many other business owners who are feeling the same way right now. Forget jobs and hiring, we'll all be lucky just to survive another four years of this guy. And from what I heard of the exit polling, most people are still “blaming Bush”. I'm suppressing the urge to become apoplectic over hearing that one, and just have my head explode all over the walls.
And Romney won't be able to replace Fed Chairman Bernanke, so the Fed will just continue devaluing the dollar until it's completely worthless. But don't expect to be paid anymore as your food and gas costs double.
“There will be a slow decline in the value of the Dollar, a managed decline.” - George Soros, Financial Times, October 23 2009.
The Fed won't be audited either, because the Democrat-Socialists will still control the Senate.
The indoctrination of school children will continue, as it has since the 60's, until everyone will grow up believing in the glorious revolution to a One-World Government that was culminated by Dear Leader Obama. "When he was born, a million doves flew to the stars, and he came from a virgin birth, didn't you hear?"
Those of us over 60 may be lucky to die of poverty before a death panel denies us care and they give us a little blue pill like they do in EU, to end us. At this point I'm not sure which will be worse.
“Obama Care” will continue to collapse our economy, which Obama has been holding off the collapse of, until after these elections anyway, so expect it soon. ( Unions will still be exempt. )
After the Collapse, expect calls for a One-World Government to be the only thing that can “save” us. All private property and all wealth will be seized, nationalized and redistributed to those that the government deems to “need” it, and it will happen on a global scale. No one will be able to hide their money or property.
All the greedy crony capitalist corporations that supported Obama and the Socialists because they made lots of money from them, will eventually learn that they will be consumed by the Beast of collectivism too. They'll work for the government, for food and maybe $2 an hour.
Iran will get the bomb, as will Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Israel may be wiped off the face of the earth, but they will not go down without a brave fight. Obama will not support them and will likely deny any survivors refugee status here in the USSA. They'll say it was the Jews' own fault for "oppressing" the Philistines. ( Palestinians )
But here in Colorado, it looks like Marijuana will be legalized now, so at least we'll be able to commit slow suicide by getting stoned out of our minds and eating ourselves to death from the munchies. ( If we can't work because of that, we can always go on welfare and let the government support us, right? ) That would have appealed to me in my 20's in the 70's, but life was much better then. Not so much now, as I'm probably too depressed to even be brought up by the artificial high of pot right now.
Meanwhile, I hope they don't try to send me off to a re-education camp. I won't go quietly.
I suppose it would probably be wise of me to stop writing these opinion blogs that are so critical of Dear Leader and their Glorious Comrades, but who cares anymore, right? What's the point in caring?
