One out of two Americans, in a near even split, re-elected a president who will continue fiscal and monetary policies that will further debase the U.S. dollar. What this means, in practical terms, is that the gainfully employed will work more hours to keep what they have. Or do without. Equality of want is where we are headed, and we will be taking more than a few other countries with us.
The president will continue to nominate ideologues to the Supreme Court. These politicians will seek to advance their party’s agenda. American property rights, rule of law, and due process are no longer secure. Inalienable rights will be eaten by that “Living Constitution.”
I am not a neo-con, but the marching-boot lovers do have this right: weakness breeds contempt. Our president is out of his league with guys like Vladimir Putin. He degrades his office by cozying-up to the Hugo Chavez types. The shabby treatment meted out to Great Britain and Israel is more than an embarrassment.
Six-months ago, I said something awful to a group of liberal friends. I said that I win no matter who is elected. If the Democrat wins, four more years of Obama socialism will pound the ignorance out of the most ardent dreamers and schemers. I am not looking forward to this Pyrrhic victory.
