Post Election

Yes, Obama has another four years as Saboteur President of the United States.

Knowing that the Democrats have a track record for monkeying around with elections, everything from registering their dogs and dead relatives to vote to pushing for illegal aliens’ voting rights (just don’t make it mandatory for the people manning the polls to check ID, etc), there will always be those stories about the rigged voting booths where Romney-Ryan votes somehow came out marking the Obama-Biden column, and stories like this one.

Forest Park is a city of about 19,000 residents in the northern suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio, in Hamilton County. In 2008, Hamilton County voted for Barack Obama while most of the surrounding counties in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana voted Republican.

With so many eyes on Ohio in yesterday’s election, it was no surprise to see this news story on the local news.

A couple from Forest Park showed up yesterday at the polls to vote just like they have ever since they turned 18. When it was their turn, they were both told that they had already voted via absentee ballot. The couple said that they have never voted absentee and wanted to know how this could happen.

Precinct officials told them that they could fill out a provisional ballot, which they did.

Before long, a number of other voters in the same precinct were told the same thing, that they had already voted via absentee ballots and that they also needed to fill out a provisional ballot. Eventually, voting officials said that the mistake was due to ‘human error’ and that anyone else in the same situation would likewise have to cast a provisional ballot. In Ohio, provisional ballots are not counted until 10 days after the election.

Be that as it may, of course, there won’t be any further investigation of such events as any kind of official matter, there never is when the Democrats profit from anything.

That said, there was an article in today’s inbox that is pretty on-point where discussing the future of our country is concerned based on a historical observation, and that is here.

We’ve reached the tipping point, folks. This election was the last hope for the American republic. We are now brazenly running toward Greece. How that will manifest in the coming years remains to be seen. We will certainly see our healthcare quality crumble, while costs soar–which has already begun; we will see spending continue to skyrocket; we will see entitlement programs expand, and we will see our country fall.

This reminds me of something Professor Alexander Tyler wrote in 1787. Tyler was a Scottish lawyer and writer. He came up with what I refer to as The Seven Steps of Democracy. Each step follows a sequence that begins with bondage and ultimately ends right back where it started.

Frightening, but applicable:

1. From Bondage to spiritual faith: The English colonists of the United States felt they were being oppressed, and began to inspire a spiritual and political awakening.

2. From spiritual faith to great courage: The religiously and politically oppressed colonists finally decided to rebel against England and take their independence.

3. From courage to liberty: The courage to start a rebellion led to a revolution against England, and ultimately a victory.

4. From liberty to abundance: After victory, we grew as a nation. We experienced an industrial revolution, and soon our country sat in abundance.

5. From abundance to complacency: As a country, we became complacent in our wealth and comfort.

6. From complacency to apathy: Following that, we began to lose our ability to care about what happened in the country, particularly in politics. We began to accept larger government in our lives, without much thought as to how it would later effect us.

7. From apathy to dependence: As the government grew, we began to rely on the government to take care of us and provide for us. We began to rely on social security, welfare, food-stamps, and other programs.

8. From dependence back into bondage: Out of this growing dependency, we will fall farther and farther down the rabbit hole, and find ourselves in Greece. Financial collapse, riots, social decline, and ultimately bondage. Then we are back where we started.

Right back where we started from?

Unfortunately, with the dialogue of communist style totalitarianism having been introduced into the mix and seemingly riding like a pilot fish alongside today’s Democrats as the remora does beside the shark, what we considered unacceptable on the part of the British back in colonial times might just be a drop in the bucket compared to what could well lay in store for us.

A system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single, often authoritarian party holds power, claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.

Now THAT sounds like an Obama style future, and should we reach that juncture, we can rightfully blame every last ignorant soul that voted to reelect this president even after they had four years’ worth of opportunity to see the lies, the disregard for the Constitution and the contempt for everything else American.

I mean, I mean, are we going to have to go through something like this to get things right again?
