The world as I know it is over.
Calls for higher taxes and more entitlements in the name of “fairness” leads me to ask how much of my private wealth is community property? The number of people dependent on the government’s largess is growing and there is little doubt for what and for whom they will vote. Elections have become public auctions of private property.
I have concluded that politicians have no loyalty to their constituents, nor do they see themselves as representatives. They act as masters who are beholden to their biggest contributors and are generous benefactors to those who vote to keep them in power. I have abandoned any conception that politicians and political parties hold the answer to my future.
It is disheartening to see so many people clamoring for an omnipotent oppressive government with more regulations, higher taxes, spending and borrowing in spite of all that has happened. The results of these policies are a matter of record. If they persist in their delusion that doing more of the same will produce different results, there is little doubt that President Barack Obama will be re-elected in 2012.
