God help us. I was afraid that Obama would win, but I did not imagine that he would win that decisively. We are in a lot worse shape as a nation than I thought we were. I've been listening to Rush Limbaugh, and, although he is trying to remain positive, he keeps saying that we have to face the fact that we as conservatives are outnumbered now. I was even more depressed to learn that it appears that Romney may actually end up receiving less votes than McCain did in 2008. This was never even close at all.
Obamacare will never be repealed, it will transform the economy and political system permanently for the worse. The economy will continue to tank. There will be higher taxes and higher unemployment. Worse still is the prospect for our national security. The danger of our open border with Mexico will never be resolved, violent drug cartels and Islamic terrorists will continue to have 24/7 access to the country and no one in Washington will blink an eye. The defense budget will be cut. No one will stop Iran from getting the bomb. Russia and China will rapidly become more aggressive. And as America's national security declines, so does the security of the rest of the free world. As Mark Steyn said:
"The first victims of American retreat will be the many corners of the world that have benefited from an unusually benign hegemon. But the consequences of retreat will come home, too. In a more dangerous world, American decline will be steeper, faster, and more devastating than Britain's -- and something far closer to Rome's."
Reagan said that freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. Well, we found that it is actually never more than one election away from extinction.
