It is a glorious day The Lord has given us.
This morning I extend an honest Thank you to the American electorate, for they provided a snapshot of themselves with unusual clarity. Six weeks ago I declared that the election was not a choice between two candidates as much as it was a verdict on us as a nation, and with near ubiquity and persuasive forcefulness that verdict has been rendered. From coast to coast the electorate chose debauchery and an expanding welfare state. (they may not have thought that was what they were voting for, but make no mistake...) While it was not the outcome I preferred, it is a fundamentally important data point; we now know where we live, and the character of a majority of the people living around us. For that straightforward clarity we must be profoundly thankful, as it focuses and guides our planning for the future.
From this day forward our tasks are to get our own hearts, minds, lives and households in order, and to derive a strategic vision and devise tactics for dealing with a now unrestrained Leviathan. Let us continue to uphold each other in every respect, making sure we remove ourselves from the damage caused by the flying debris of the inevitably collapsing welfare state. Our realm may be visited by Divine Providence, but nevertheless it remains a rational universe -- bad decisions will result in destructive outcomes. I celebrate the coming maelstrom, for it confirms the rational nature of the Cosmos.
Lady Thatcher was entirely correct when she stated that the problem with collectivism is that eventually it runs out of other peoples money to spend. During that untenable time The Collective becomes increasingly desperate and ruthless, searching for resources wherever it can find them it order to feed itself and its dependents. Stay out of its way to the degree possible, and contribute to its demise whenever possible. It is the only hope for laying the foundation for America 2.0. America 1.0 is but a distant wreck receding in the rear view mirror.
Good Post, right on target.
We have become a nation of Godless babykilling, euthansia killing entitlement freaks.
LAUGH OUT LOUD!!!
My sentiments exactly.
This is what we’re dealing with.
I agree. The country will collapse, the electorate has called for it. What’s unknown is whether the U.S. returns from the collapse, to any semblance of liberty and prosperity. At this point I must determine how to most effectively insulate my family.
Our society may very well collapse. As you say the universe is rational. It seems to me that we should begin forming “sane societies” by strengthing our relationships with likeminded people who want to live rational lives among sane people. Forming mini- Galt’s Gulches will help insulate us and our families from the insanity aroud us. We should build social and business relationships around shared values - not just on convenience.
That’s a good summary of where we are now.
It fits with something I just heard Rush say a few minutes ago, paraphrasing: “In a nation of children, given the choice between Santa Claus or work, what are they going to choose?”
Time to “Go Galt”.
Yes, I think this explains the election results, but it is irrelevant. Reality is what it is and we still have to awake to a country that is no longer the beacon of hope, freedom and prosperity. Maybe we should all fly our flags at half mast this week in honor of the America that once was.
Ehhhhhhh........look at the election map. The Democrats won the NorthEast, the West Coast, the Rust belt and the Rocky Mountain High. These are all places that are failing. North Dakota and Texas are where the money is and they went Republican. Michigan, home of deserted Detroit, went Democrat. They think they can vote themselves some new companies. Old Jerry Brown in California sighed a big sigh of relief. Romney would have cut back the federal funds to California and old Jerry and the Democrats would have come to the end of the line. Our problem as conservatives is that we know there will be consequences for these Democrat actions. Well, all you can do when you see that train is going to come off the track is to make sure you’re out of the way. If the Democrats tear up the rails and put their houses there, well, it’s going to be awful, but it was their actions and decisions that caused the wreck. Leave them alone and go fishing.
