    Shame On Me

    So true.

    The saying that essentially ascribes responsibility for making certain decisions, becomes particularly appropriate after this country re-elected the un-re-electable last night.

    The country says thank you, may I have another?

    A commenter on Twitter last night points out quite correctly, that we now will know what it would have been like to have a Jimmy Carter second term.  In 1980, folks might well have paid attention a little more to cause and effect.  Or maybe folks today are composed too wholly of those indoctrinated youth we have ignored for an entire generation and more.  Perhaps it might be something more sinister, but for whatever the reason, we lost control of this one.  We will now own the results.

    "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice .."
    Shame indeed.

    TPTB of the GOP, thought that manipulating a primary for a train-wreck that couldn't whoop John McRINO in '08, was somehow the key to defeating <strike>RomneyCare</strike> <strike>ObamaCare</strike> it's not a mandate it's a tax RobertsCare (Bush nominee)?  Really?

    So, the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, who not that long ago, campaigned for Senate to the Left of Teddy Kennedy, and then governed to the Left of Teddy Kennedy, was somehow the figurative silver bullet for changing the path this nation has been on for over 7 decades?  Really?

    Shall I go on?

    Our problems are with the culture, and politics is downstream from that. Liberals figured this out a long time ago and took over the institutions which create public opinion and move the culture in their direction.

    They are now reaping the political rewards of that. They have bought off the people with cash benefits, absolution for immoral behavior, and blaming others (like the rich) for personal failings. Conservatism is a better philosophy for a civil society but we are no longer a civil, moral people.

    We tell people they must work hard and take responsibility for themselves, and great reward will follow. That is true but the liberals are offering them a shorter (false) path. Just vote for more goodies and avoid accountability for one's own life. It will all fail in the end but it works for quite some time.

    Trying to find the perfect set of candidates won't matter going forward. The media will portray anyone we put forth as a greedy, uncaring bastard who is out of touch with the needs of the people. They already have the template ready, they just plug in the new names.

    Huge areas of the country are lost to us, like California. No matter how ridiculous it gets, people keep electing Democrats. There is no accountability for failure because failure is always conveniently blamed on someone else. Capitalism, rich people, what have you. Obama has escaped responsibility for his failures as well.

    Facts, figures, history, empirical evidence don't matter to these people. They don't even want to know any of that. They are culturally predisposed to prefer bigger and more intrusive government because they believe it will make their lives easier. More time for them to sit around. The cost in dollars and loss in freedom is of no concern.

    The coming fiscal collapse may wake people up, who knows. Until then I think we are f****d.

    To change that banner in the upper left to read "The county is lost." It is more reflective of the current reality.

    ...on WHY the vote went the way it did.

    Channel-surfing through the talking heads this am has left me even more confused about what happened since last night.

    Looking at the actual results, at least here at home, even moreso.

    Candidates in "safe seats" won re-election, yet tax hikes (mostly) went down in flames.

    The proposal numbers locally were a discombobulated mess.

    A little further out, Bentivolio won, while Daniels lost to the Troy political/spin machine.

    And, I've yet to find a good breakdown of the numbers on the Presidential Race.

    It's a safe bet that the People Republic of Detroit had a huge hand in Michigan's numbers.

    Hopefully, they will also like dealing with a bankruptcy judge after Prop 1 went down yesterday.

    Elections have consequences.

    That's the bottom line. VOTERS are turning this country into a giant Detroit.

    F'ing idiots.

    I did not write that post.  I copied it from a poster at Michelle Malkin's site so I want to give credit where credit is due.

    Secondly, I am not as shocked as many are over the lost election.  This upside down electorate has been in the works for over seventy years.  It started with the infiltration of our educational institutions from communists and socialists who survived WWII and came here knowing we would be too busy rebuilding our lives after the war to notice their dastardly ways.  Look what we have for an education system today.  It is disgusting.  And all of that trickled into our everyday lives and was embraced by liberal/progressives who then crafted laws to keep forcing this agenda into every part of everyday lives.  

    We have no one to blame but ourselves for allowing this to happen.  How do we turn it around?  We can't.  It's inbred now into generations of our population.  We have more takers than makers.  This isn't going to end well.

    Listen to this clip of Paul Harvey from 1965 and tell me - what do we do now?
