After decades of struggle, the leftist machine, which includes media, political, education and entertainment elites, have finally managed to form an electorate that cares more about themselves than their country. The Takers now officially outnumber the Makers.
It's an unmitigated disaster for the Makers, but a bountiful harvest for the Takers who always want more free shit.
Think about it. For the first time in our history, more people vote for what's good for them, than what is good for us. In 50 years, we've gone from an "ask not what your country can do for you" people, to a "what the hell can my country do for me" people. The barbarians are no longer at the gate, they're standing in front of you at the polling station waiting to vote for every Democrat on the ballot. How else to stay flush with free shit?
It seems to me that we've passed a very dangerous precipice. Earnest, country loving citizens are no longer the majority of the electorate. They've been replaced by mosaic of abstract constituencies that all seem to have one thing in common. They're self-centered, single issue voters that want what's best for themselves, not the nation as a whole. People more interested in a handout, i.e., free shit, than a hand up.
I listened to GOP pollster Frank Luntz discussing the election results with Hannity earlier this week. He said what really surprised him in the exit polling was that Obama voters generally didn't care about the results a candidate achieved. They cared more about which candidate best understood their struggles. Really? The country is burning to the ground and these morons are worried about which candidate can pretend to care the most. Considering who they voted for, that lack of intellectual curiosity shouldn't be a shocker.
This post is not meant to condemn every Democrat, though I do question the sanity of anyone voting for Barrack Obama. My target is those looking for something for nothing, i.e., free shit, and the politicians who prey on these societal leeches. The other entity most ripe for condemnation is the corrupt media elite who pave the way for Democrats to behave as they please, without any fear of reprisal. They have long since abdicated their role as an objective arbiter in the American political system. They may as well be on the Obama payroll, and many probably are.
Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1787 that a free press is critical to a functioning Democracy. As Jefferson put it, a free press is not primarily about freedom of expression, it's about maintaining the proper basis of America government. Based on that, we no longer have a free press. We have the world's largest public relations firm operating on behalf of their client, the Democrat Party. Put another way, Obama is the mob boss and the mainstream media are his muscle to clean up messes and make problems go away. Benghazi anyone?
In the end, we must figure out how to break the monopoly that the biased mainstream media has on information dissemination in this country. Yes, conservatives have talk radio and Fox News, but the uniformed voter that Democrats target don't listen to those outlets. Quite simply, if the media are allowed to operate with complete impunity as they have over the last decade, I believe we'll be dead as a Republic before the end of this one. They've amassed too much power and influence over too much of the electorate. Until that reallity changes, welcome to our new one.
The United States of Free Shit.
