First, one of the key issues that kept me up all night:
Obamacare is now here to stay. The United States will move inexorably toward socialized medicine, and the quality of health care for all will begin to decline irrevocably.and further:
Federal spending, which stands at its highest level since World War II, will stay right where it is and perhaps increase. Dependency on government will become better established as a way of life. Government will intrude in ever more creative and pernicious ways into the daily lives of Americans, as Obama rules by fiat to the greatest extent possible and issues regulations affecting myriad aspects of our lives.There is more. Much, much more. But I am going to pull a Scarlet O'Hara and beg off for the day - I'll worry about those things tomorrow.
As more people become acclimated to receiving government largesse, fewer will be open to conservative ideas about self-reliance. Businesses will find it more difficult than ever to operate as the burdens of rules and paperwork weigh them down.
Finally, one of WHD's famous 'fake quotes' - I like to think of it as the unspoken quote:
“Now I want to bring us all together, Democrats and . . . those who lie, only like rich people, detest Hispanic immigrants, want to send jobs overseas, love oil companies, enjoy war, hate the middle class, wage war on women, like to throw old people off cliffs, favor letting people die instead of giving them health care, and want to put African Americans back in chains.”
- Barack Obama
