“We have lost.” I received the following this morning…..it was written by another but it sums up my feelings as well
WE ARE FAST APPROACHING THE STAGE OF ULTIMATE INVERSION; THE STAGE WHERE GOVERNMENT IS FREE TO DO AS IT PLEASES, WHILE THE CITIZENS MAY ACT ONLY BY PERMISSION.
– Ayn Rand
And the last line says it all.
Subject: We have lost
The most productive people, the small business owners, the entrepreneurs and the honest wage earners of America are so demoralized right now I am not sure we will recover as a country. We have lost the most important election of our lifetime and did so after giving our best effort, spent the most money ever and working the hardest we have ever worked. The very people that America needs the most to generate a real recovery now have the least motivation to do so and worse, lack the confidence necessary to even justify the effort.
We opposed a foe that was so obviously incompetent, corrupt and inept in leadership we really expected a landslide victory and a redeeming mandate to return the nation to conservative values. Instead what we got was a harsh slap in the face by an America public telling us it is not like us and it does not any longer believe in what we believe in. As a country we are hopelessly divided by a malignant polarization approaching that similar to the time around the civil war. Our side will not march in the streets, never the less the rebellion, protests and resistance will be just as determined but more subtle. The American can do spirit, our optimism, our traditional dependence on our own ingenuity is now mere kindling on the advancing flame of an insidious yet steadily advancing socialism.
Those of us who create real jobs, invest our capital, our fortunes and take the risks to build America, feel betrayed. The fundamentals of honest effort and hard work rendering the rewards associated with capitalism seem now like a cruel joke. We are now a targeted enemy not to be governed but coerced into submission by a lazy, corrupt, vindictive, arrogant government that is out for revenge, redistribution and to add a final insult, one we find too morally bankrupt to lead. The usual safe guards for a democracy found in a vibrant independent press have lost any semblance of objectivity and instead have joined a side. What used to be principled Independent reporters have morphed into dishonest pundits spewing a disgusting relentless partisan bile that neither informs nor educates. They are shallowly manipulated by the political marketers to the point their words lack meaning. The “fourth branch” of government has become nothing more than an empty cathode ray irradiating a mind numbed audience like a repetitive Beaves n’ Butthead rerun.
We have elected a President who not only feels we did not work for what we have but feels we do not deserve either. Had it gone the other way, Obama supporters would have torched America. Instead they will now legitimately consume it by gnawing at the soft underbelly of what was once her prosperity. Our Judeo-Christian culture now having as much meaning as a 3 minute Youtube video. It is however as the Bible had forewarned, ours is a world turning over where good is bad, and bad is good. God help us all. He is our last refuge.
