An Independent View of the Election

I seldom pay attention to polls because they are often used in by our media to demoralize the opposition, as they were in 1980, showing Jimmy Carter far ahead of Reagan until a couple of days before the election. In this election they were more accurate, and if the Republicans had taken them seriously, they might have done better, or at least not been blind-sided by the outcome of the election.
This election was a national triumph of the entitlement culture over self-reliance. It is essentially a victory of socialism over capitalism. It marks a shift in our social, economic and political culture. Like it or not, we are moving into socialism. The impact is too far-reaching to try to describe or even fully anticipate the ramifications, but we will see them begin to materialize before the end of Obamas second term. Encouraged by re-election, though not by mandate, Obamas policies of redistribution of wealth will gain momentum.
Obama has said that he will revoke sequestration, even though he signed it into law; he says he was bullied by Republicans into signing it. What Obama is displaying is a typical, Democrat-like, short-term memory and intermittent myopia for the cogent and compelling reasons for sequestration. It was not the idea of Republicans; it was the idea of our creditors, if we want to continue borrowing money from them. It was an external demand for fiscal responsibility.
So tighten your seat belts and get ready. There is still plenty of time to stock up on food, fuel, weapons ammunition and medicines in preparation for the biggest storm ever to hit the U.S. This will not be a weather storm. It will be a tempest caused by massive panic due to shortages of food, housing, medical care and other essentials that we have come to expect in our heretofore robust economy. The final struggle between socialism and self-reliance is near at hand.

I like O'Reilly too but you can't spout off time and time again without running afoul of some people. We all have different sensibilities and the big winners last night were the gays. Their cause is gaining steam, as are they, and now we have a lesbo Senator from Wisconsin. She swept into power and is now clearly on a roll.

Who is OReilley and what did he run for? I do not recall any OReilley on the ticket where I voted so you must be confusing me with someone who lives in El Paso or somewhere besides where I live.
BTW, why don't you address the gays as "we" like you did the lesbo. Who do you think you are fooling, and why are you ashamed of your sexual orientation?
Sexual orientation is the least of my worries, and if you re-read my post you will see what I consider the cogent and compelling political issues of the day.
