“..a great majority of Americans want communism, even though, their wishes may border the sublime.”
And when things turn to utter sh*t, these same people will complain why God allows so much evil and suffering to happen.
Look around, things are turning to utter sh!t. This is because of a lethal combination of Government inteference and wreckless greed (and, no, the two things are not mutually exclusive).
The problem is that most Americans are too dumbed down and numb to tell up from down. And perhaps they are too tired to even try. As a result, the easiest thing to do is to blame the evil conservatives (ignoring the greater liberal role in this fiasco) and go with the socialist guy who promises to change things and spread the wealth.
The effect of BHO’s impending election will be to create a defacto one party system. While a GOP may remain, it will be a shadow of its former self and a scapegoat for all the problems of the Republic. The Progressives, with their supermajorities, will enact changes that will make it all-but impossible for their dominance to be legally challenged. And the sheeple will sign and fall in line.
Sorry, but I think we have lost our collective mind as a people. Not all of us, but enough. Unfortunately, the sensible among us have a choice: leave, take the ride, or start a civil war.
The Argentinians called it the SHTF moment ('94, '95?), you know the words. There were/are some good people there that hunkered down, kept thinking conservatively, creating little black market businesses, made do but kept forging ahead, I hope some of them immigrated here, we could use their help!!
They described roaming gangs of thugs, developed defense techniques for combating them, anticipating them. They (the thugs) were the typical welfare mentality types, like we have here. Once they found out that all that "gimmee" stuff was a pack of lies then they started their predatory ways big time.
It was interesting that there was still access to guns on the black market even in such a controlled environment. They weeded out some thugs too but they also suffered a great deal.
