HURT: Obama victory means four more years with no hope of change
Washington Times ^ | November 7, 2012 | Charles Hurt

All that for nothing. It was the billion-dollar election that did not decide one single damned thing. Republicans control the House. Democrats control the Senate. And the White House remains in Democratic hands with absolutely no mandate whatsoever.

Another four years with no hope of change.

In this environment with this economy and all the gravely important matters pressing against the very existence of this country, it should have been a tsunami election. It should have been a landslide that sent President Obama into dust heap of failed presidencies. Instead, the election was about Big Bird.

It was the rape election. The contraception election. The binders full of women election.

It was about who was born where and whether she really could claim to be a Cherokee Indian.

It was about former president George W. Bush. And it was about gay marriage.

It was about the 1 percent and the 99 percent and the 47 percent.

It was about dancing freaking horses, for crying out loud!

Just about the only thing the election wasn’t about was the economy, which everyone agrees was the only thing voters actually cared about. People tend to really care about the economy when real unemployment reaches double digits, welfare rolls fatten by one-third, politicians rack up $16 trillion in debt and the largest tax hike in the history of the world looms just weeks away. Yet that obviously is not what decided this election. Politicians were too busy talking all about Big Bird, rape and dancing horses...


This is the Achilles heel of a democracy. Politicians simply tax those who do not support them and give the money to those who do. Or give the money to those they would like to have support them. It is the end of the line. Game over...

The people of Athens had the same kind of problem we have too. They moved to other countries and spread Athenian ideals to other lands. I hope it doesn’t get that bad, but freedom is more than any one nation.

Problem is, this time, there's no where to go.

Our forefathers had a whole continent to work with. The best we can hope for is some states to secede. It could be an interesting four years. But we're definitely looking to get out of NY.

There are many low cost tax haven islands all over the world. Heck, a lot of people officially reside in boats at sea. How can you tax them? I’m just ballooning anyway. Heheh! God bless you. Hope all is well.
