The wise man does at once what the fool does finally.
What has occurred to me is that in November 2012 conservatives will attempt to do what they have always done...and that is, like a permissive parent, yet again save liberals from their own poor choices. And like the consequences that permissive parents often experience, the longer our liberal children have been allowed to raid the coffers and do whatever they want, the harder it will be to reign them in. For decades, the GOP establishment has acted like a permissive parent in taking a backseat to its responsibility to the constitution and the country--allowing liberal miscreants to drive us to where we are now. And like spoiled and foolish self-centered children, the liberal citizenry will wake up someday surprised to find themselves with very few choices and a life or death existence.
What I see in our future...within a decade (long past Obama's tenure and blame)...our options in the marketplace will be few, and government will control almost every aspect of our lives from mere choices in the grocery store to whether or not we will live or die due to poor healthcare.
And our task is formidable! We have to try to change the presidency, keep the House and flip the Senate--all of this while facing massive mob-like voter fraud in every precinct in the country! Our choices for the executive branch were less than stellar--a situation we ourselves created by a generation of complacency. But because of that, we have a depressed conservative constituency--many of whom--out of foolish conscience--will not vote for the one candidate that will oust our liberal dictator. Those who say a majority win in the House and Senate alone is enough are simpletons. Our lawless president has shown us the fruitlessness of that aspiration--he governs without Congress.
Our GOP candidate SHOULD win in a landslide, but I doubt he will for reasons stated. But even a win creates another daunting task: not only will our lukewarm conservative president have to work with Congress to repeal the Affordable Healthcare Act but our elected representatives will have to fix our now compromised constitution--and only if we have enough true conservatives in both Houses to override a Democrat/RINO filibuster.
We have a glimmer of hope. But it is only a glimmer. The long historically predicted outcomes of the fall of a civilization happening after 200 years have been oft stated:
(The quotation below is old, and most people have attributed it to Alexander Fraser Tytler, Lord Woodhouselee (1747-1813), a Scottish attorney and writer, although it has been attributed to several other men as well.)
A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to selfishness;
From selfishness to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.
A conservative win in November will be a miracle and a loss securely tied to fraud and fools.
