A SAD POST-ELECTION ASSESSMENT
Unfortunately, my pre-election premonition was correct. Re-elected was an individual no one really knows, understands or even if he is eligible to be our President. Many fear that by 2016 our Country will cease to resemble that willed to us by our founding fathers. Also, forgotten, is Pres. Kennedy’s appeal that “Americans ask not what their country can do for them but rather, what they can do for their country”.
“ What’s in it for me” will be the new clarion call. Reliance on government paternalism, Karl Marx’ theory of wealth distribution and Class Warfare will predominate.
Republicans nominated a good, decent man with a fine background and experience particularly suited to reverse America’s economic quandary. The problem was that Democrats better understood both human psychology and its relationship to the art of politics.
They devised a superior political strategy dependent on “killing Romney” politically. First, they spent $200 million dollars to destroy his character, image and background and were assisted by the mainstream media. Romney was relegated to responding to their diversionary issues such as a phony War on Women, contraception and Baine Capital. Minimized, was serious discussion of the economy, jobs, home foreclosures, taxes, Obamacare, job destroying regulations and foreign policy failures.
Ignoring 57 million Americans who rejected Obama, democrats will claim a landslide victory and mandate for change. Republicans will be called obstructionists, three more liberal members of the Supreme Court will be appointed and Executive Orders will rule the land.
