“Why America is much worse off that it was four years ago”
Jim Pethokoukis uses charts to make the case. Me, I think the answer is pretty obvious, charts or no: every so often, and for whatever the reasons, the left is able to convince Americans that they aren’t really who we know they are. After which, they take power, run left, and create economic displacement, high unemployment, and a country that is less free and more government-centric.
Then, after each such time, Americans wake up and ask, what the hell were we thinking? — and try to correct their own mistake.
This time, though, the economic displacement, high unemployment, and expansion of government seems to be quite intentional — and the “progressive” dead enders and their various client blocs are going to do everything they can to hold on to power. Because, though the country may be going down the crapper, so long as theft is legalized and is given the imprimatur of beneficent government, there are those who will remain to bleed it dry — those who are told they need to vote in the own economic interests, which means, simply, vote themselves others’ stuff.
November will tell us if we’ve reached the tipping point. And that’s before the 2-3% voter fraud the left relies upon gets added to the ledger.
We need a landslide. And even then? Mitt Romney.
If I wasn’t already drunk most of the time, I’d probably take up heavy drinking.
