Pinging this to a small handful of remaining FReepers who I believe might share my view, to one degree or another.
Ben Franklin roughly observed that : When the voters realize that they can vote themselves money and lots of benefits...they will.
Of course, old Ben said it better than me.
I agree with what you say. Where are the leaders we need?
Well one good thing about this, is that we don't have to hear about all those bad things in the news anymore since the Dems can only produce good and rainbows.
Hi joanie. Sadly, I agree with your analysis. You've just extrapolated what is already in the works.
When does the transition in the House and Senate occur? I know for the presidency, it's in Jan but I never really paid attention to our representatives.
It is sad to think that the founders of our great nation would never be "successful" in politics today. They would be labeled as religious fanatics and neo-cons. I think they would break down and weep like a child if they could see what we have done with their experiment.
Our bridges are in a loop... we go round and round and round and round...
I am absolutely "blown-away" by this absolutely terrifically written piece.
I may have to copy and print this out and put it away for my grandchildren.
With permission of the author, preferably.
Ping to read at home.
Nice rant, joanie-f. I agree with most of it. But I have to ask, why do you believe that Santorum would agree? He's never met a trade agreement he didn't like and until very recently, he did all he could to keep the invasion going. His is a very confusing voting record, it appears he tried to have it both ways.

Thank you. read and heed all you "we taught the pubbies a lesson". 12 Million illegals will now become US citizens before the next elections, thereby insuring that there will never be a Republican majority again. The WOT was lost last night
Speaking as someone who's lived for 29 years in a country that almost to the letter corresponds to your horror-list, I can wholeheartedly sympatize with your fears.
Then again, Pelosi, Kennedy, Kerry et.al. may rise to the occasion and see the light, although I doubt it. All we can do is try our best to raise our kids into good human beeings and pray for a better future.
Excellent and dead on.
Thank you joanie.
I think you are right. This is not just a cyclic off-season defeat. There are fewer conservatives than there used to be. They are not being replaced as fast as the old ones die off. Conservatism is based on ethics, honor, patriotism, and religion, all of which are systematically being sabotaged and subverted by the media (including Hollywood and the rest of pop entertainment) and the education establishment. The drastic loss of Republican strength in the mountain West and plains states, and in old Republican areas like northern New England and the Midwest, is the result of cultural decadence and (in the West) of massive invasion by third-world aliens, who will soon get full citizenship through amnesty. Most of the American people have been trained to think and react like sentimental children, not to be critical, mature, analytical and ethical. It's pretty much what happened to other great civilizations in the past.
Thanks for the kind words, metmom. (The new congress will be sworn in in early January.)
