By Mr. Curmudgeon:
Along a ridge at a cemetery, a stone wall marks the farthest advance of Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. Pickett's Charge at the battle of Gettysburg marked what historians call the high watermark of the Confederacy, the crowded moment when the war to preserve America's constitutional system would prevail or die. Lincoln's Army of the Potomac held the stone wall and stopped Lee's attempt to preserve the South's slaveocracy.
Tuesday night, America's political right and the Republican Party hit a stone wall and, like Lee's army, they will never recover. In spite of extraordinary get-out-the-vote efforts by the Tea Party and Republican activists, President Obama sailed to an easy victory over his rival Mitt Romney. Election night analysis showed that access to free contraception and abortion-on-demand were key elements explaining Obama's victory. Suburban women accomplished what King George III, the Kaiser, Hitler and Stalin failed to do - end America.
Americans - who we were told opposed ObamaCare overwhelmingly - voted to sustain the monstrosity by re-electing the president who fathered it and will shield the malformed monster as its tentacles begin unfolding in the years to come. Government-run, well, everything is here to stay.
Take the wife to that fancy restaurant for dinner and the kids to Disneyland - give them memories to cherish, because the country we know is done.
President Obama has been given the "flexibility" to do to America's nuclear deterrent what he promised his friends in Moscow ... whatever that may be. And frightened establishment Republicans in Congress will work with the President to raise the debt ceiling, spending and taxes to remain relevant and "mainstream." And the "payback," as White House adviser Valerie Jarrett warned the president's opponents, can begin in earnest.
America's Great Depression II will continue to deepen as the nation piles on more debt and the Federal Reserve prolongs its program of quantitative easing. Though you may be unemployed, with your children skipping meals, you can take comfort in media reports that detail the wonders of our "sluggish recovery."
Four years from now, it won't matter if the reincarnated Ronald Reagan replaces Obama, the nation will have passed the event horizon of insolvency, falling into an inescapable and endless black hole.
Goodbye America ... it was nice knowing you.

Leave, just go all of you who think the American dream is dead. (mrcurmudgeon) You are saying that every man, woman and child who has given their life for this country did it for NOTHING!!!!
Really? I think not. We owe everyone of them a huge debt and the American dream is not dead until the last living soul with that dream is dead too.
Your brief essay is like a well-crafted arrow, expertly launched, hitting home.
You are going to fight against the will of the majority of the American people?
There will now be unfettered immigration from islamic countries and third-world hellholes, encouraged and abetted and financed by the federal government, so that in ten years the United States will be wholly unrecognizable.
Remember those who brought this about. Remember them well.
I think if we cannot sway the minds of ill-informed gullible people who believed the lie, then are we not no better?
The majority is always determined by the side that is willing to fight for what they believe the hardest. This time, we didn’t
Liberaltarians are ecstatic today, our natural enemies
RINO’s had their SHOT again, and lost again. A ham sandwich should have beaten Obama.
Traditional Conservatives have no place here, conservative Christians are unwanted here.
The GOP is dead.
That's really not the brilliant rebuttal you prolly think it is.
Now we know how it was for the Jews in Europe who cognitively and with dissonance, refused to believe the words and actions of those who embarked on a course to exterminate them.
Many will willingly walk to the ‘gas chambers’, and a stunned and beaten people absolutely refuse to believe this is actually happening. Some, with false bravado, will beat their chests and exclaim that the reality we see is not reality and the ‘dream’ still lives so long as those that hold it are not dead.
They have no understanding or comprehension of where we have arrived.
It isn’t my job to twist anyone’s arm into believing in liberty as I do. I have spent 12 years on this forum advocating for it with over 77k posts. What else would you have me do to educate these window-licking looters? Hold a gun to their heads and tell them what to think?
For goodness sakes.
Even with buying every possible vote they could for the past four years, the Democrats still didn’t do that great. Their base is getting old. I had communist professors at my university and I was raised in a union household. I’m a conservative. Reality is a great teacher. These young people are getting hit right in the mouth by underemployment. It’s the liberals who told them to borrow $60,000 for that degree in History of Music in the Italian City States and now they grill hamburgers or bring water to your restaurant table. The Democrats can lie to them for a long time, but they’ll eventually figure out that the Democrats are just a bunch of grifters.
Sorry, but, yeah, goodbye, America. We are clearly past the tipping point. I agree with you. A majority of the voting electorate does not, and in my opinion, cannot be convinced to change their minds.
All those brave soldiers in our national cemeteries didn’t die for this, but it is what we have become.
The American Dream has become our living nightmare.
Just around the corner, there's a rainbow in the sky.
So let's have another cup of coffee, and let's have another piece of pie.
We passed that “event horizon” last year when Boehner caved on the debt.
There is no way back.
Kudos to “Mr. Curmudgeon”
Our young people, union members, women, civil servants and hyphenated Americans did it.
right.... pitiful really...
“You are saying that every man, woman and child who has given their life for this country did it for NOTHING!!!!”
WE are not saying it, the LIBERALS are saying it! You can’t live in a dream world, you can only live in reality and that reality is America is gone as we knew it.
