The Big Test

 

Just in case people aren't paying attention to the current political agenda:

  1. Demoralize the country by demonizing those who create jobs.
  2. Re-route as many jobs through government as possible.
  3. Spend money as fast as it can be spent, no matter how much waste and fraud there is.
  4. When your policies fail miserably on every front, try to buy votes and sink future generations into further and further debt. After all, today's children (aka tomorrow's taxpayers) can't vote against the current crop of politicians.
This November's election and the election in 2012 are not referendums on government, but are instead measures of the intelligence of the American people.

Pass? Fail? We'll find out.

I blame populism, the ever increasing Democratization of America.

Democratically held election are fine and good when public officials are genuinely bound by the rules of a nation's Constitution. But people think they can vote the country into any form they damn well please, because they're stuck on this populist (bolshevik) idea that the majority is proof of justice.

They're completely sold on the collective wisdom of their individual ignorance.

I agree with Casey, the problem is not Obama but the citizenry who voted a man like him with the Presidency. "It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president". The problem with democracy is that now we have two hundred million tyrants with their foot at my throat instead of one or two; and when there is a foot at my throat I care not if it's a left foot or right foot, if it's a dictator or society at large.

The 2008 election gave me a pretty good measure of the lack of intelligence in the American population. Some may have learned the hard way since then, how much remains to be seen. As for those in power, they've shown an even greater lack of intelligence.

The 2010 election for me is going to be easy. I've got my own personal "get the f*** out" campaign going. If you're an incumbent, I'm voting against you.

Well, it's fascinating that having the same name doesn't guarantee the same political views.
