Conservatives Need to Declare Victory

Say "Hell No!" to Liberal State Bailouts

This is like bizarro world. We get creamed at the ballot box at the same time that the liberal statist model is crumbling from the weight of it’s unsustainability. Liberal cities and states failing. Fat unions driving their companies into bankruptcy. Nobody talking about global warming now, are they? Tax increases? Fuhgeddaboutit. Why aren’t conservatives out there saying, “It’s over. We win.”

As I type this, New York, California, and cities from Detroit to Atlanta all have their hands out saying, “Oh, please, bloated Federal government, give us billions and billions of dollars to save our failed models.”

I say, “Hell no!”. Let these poorly run states and cities who have been drunk on tax dollars for too long suffer for their sins. Why should I, who live in a conservative city and state, have to pay for the excesses of New York state? Apparently, Republican run states like South Carolina and Texas are doing just fine, thank you very much.

What I fear is that we are heading for a new Civil War. The battle will not be so much between the North and South but between those that have been paying the bills and those that haven’t. It is time for this to stop.

Meanwhile, Conservatives have already won the argument. Ask Europe.
