“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” ~Ronald Reagan
The Titanic is sinking. The iceberg that Republicans and conservatives have been warning about for months and years since ObamaCare was passed has been struck thanks to a reckless and arrogant Democrat Party that refuses to listen to reason and common sense and is only interested in advancing their own agenda, at the expense of the country.
I’m only going to make one prediction for the new year of 2014: it’s going to be a nightmare for Democrats nationwide. As bad as 1980, when Ronald Reagan defeated Jimmy Carter and the Democrats didn’t see the inside of the White House again for 12 years. Possibly even worse.
Having someone tell you the stove is hot and not to touch it is one thing. Actually touching the stove and experiencing it yourself is something else. ObamaCare’s spectacular failure is a reminder to a new generation why the founding fathers were so adamant about small, constitutional government. We’re once again reminded of the wisdom the founding fathers had in constructing our Constitution, why government is a necessary evil, and why Marxist progressive-liberalism will always fall on its face if given enough time and space to do so.
Socialized health care is what liberals have been praying, hoping, and dreaming about for decades and ObamaCare is very likely going to collapse under its own bloated weight. 2014 is going to be a painful lesson to a lot of people as to why big government doesn’t work. When it’s over, there’s likely going to be a big mess to clean up. The Titanic is going to sink and it’s going to take many people that didn’t want to see the iceberg (or just shut their eyes to it) with it.
Barack Obama’s reelection may have been a blessing in disguise because, for as much havoc as ObamaCare is wreaking on people’s health insurance premiums and on people’s lives (and will continue to do so), at the end of the day we did elect and then reelect him. We are reaping what we sowed in 2008 and 2012. And as painful as it may be, when it’s all over, there is a strong chance the American people might be open to REAL CHANGE. A new revolution for a new generation that will be open to rediscovering the Constitution and the rest of our founding documents and the principles they in turn were founded on.
We can get rid of the Fed, we can get rid of the IRS, we can get rid of the EPA, we can get rid of the Department of Education, we can get rid of the Department of Energy. We can shrink government to a size it hasn’t been in a century, lower taxes, lower spending, pay our debt down, unleash small businesses, manufacturing, and the free market again. We can stop the slow, progressive creep of liberalism that has corrupted Washington D.C. and the White House over the last century. That is all very possible and doable. But we the people have to put the right people in place to make that happen. And it can all start in 2014 by kicking every Congressperson up for reelection that voted and supported for ObamaCare out. Make them answer to the people.
It’s going to be a very interesting year to watch. Happy New Year!
