No doubt. This will be a historic rout of the Bonehead led GOP.
A cave of epic proportion .

The trouble with kicking the can down the road, as a strategy to cope with the looming problems, is that eventually you run out of road.

The web of “social safety net” programs, which has so successfully ensnared such a large part of the voting public, is eventually going to have to cut back, paying something like the equivalent of pennies on the dollar, if it is not simply abandoned altogether. We have seen these schemes collapse elsewhere, and the human wreckage is pitiful to look upon. When corrective measures finally are taken, they shall be much more draconian than most people now imagine. Real privation, real starvation, is a haunting probability, if not a certainty.

It does not have to be. Probably 75% of the problem that we face is the rigidly doctrinaire application of a program to “change” the nature of this country “fundamentally”, by implementation of poorly-thought-out social engineering schemes.

The marketplace is thought, by some, to be much too chaotic, and must be regulated with a firm hand, punitive if necessary, just to keep down “excesses”, though it is never explained just why these “excesses” are not part of the greater good. The “excesses” are what fund all real human progress, building the factories and laboratories and research institutes, and powering the everyday commerce between people.
