The most productive people, the small business owners, the entrepreneurs and the honest wage earners of America are so demoralized right now I am not sure we will recover as a country. We have lost the most important election of our lifetime and did so after giving our best effort, spent the most money ever and working the hardest we have ever worked. The very people that America needs the most to generate a real recovery now have the least motivation to do so and worse, lack the confidence necessary to even justify the effort.
As a country we are hopelessly divided by a malignant polarization approaching that which divided us prior to the Civil War. Our side will not march in the streets, but the rebellion, protests and resistance will be just as determined -- though more subtle. The American can-do spirit, our optimism, our traditional dependence on our own ingenuity is now mere kindling on the advancing flame of an insidious yet steadily advancing socialism.
Those of us who create real jobs, invest our capital, our fortunes and take the risks to build America, feel betrayed. The fundamentals of honest effort and hard work rendering the rewards associated with capitalism seem now like a cruel joke. We are now a targeted enemy not to be governed but coerced into submission by a lazy, corrupt, vindictive, arrogant government that is out for revenge, redistribution -- and to add a final insult -- one we believe is too morally bankrupt to lead.
We have elected a President who not only feels we did not work for what we have, but feels we do not deserve it either. Had it gone the other way, Obama supporters would have torched America. Instead they will now legitimately consume it by gnawing at the soft underbelly of what was once her prosperity. Our Judeo-Christian culture -- that those on the left revile and call "extreme" -- now has as much relevance as a three-minute YouTube video.
Fighting for God and Country has now a new meaning, they will fight for Obama-Bucks, work the system, because this President gave them the right to do so.
P.S. For starters, my next car(s) will be built, at a non-union plant, located in Lincoln, Alabama.
Denny adds, "My two BMW's were both built in South Carolina. I will never purchase an American car built by the UAW."
I agree. For starters, anything built by a union here in America should be ignored. If they're at war with us, we need to return the favor.
