Looks like it’s time for Paco’s open letter to his fellow citizens
Hi, America. Are you insane?Update: Friend and commenter JeffS has a link to an excellent post-election Chris Muir cartoon. We are now the guerrillas.
You have just imposed the third term of Jimmy Carter on this formerly great nation. Why?
No, really, why? You have returned to office the most ignorant, ideologically hidebound and most myopic president of modern times. I take it, then, that you’re ok with unemployment in the 8% range, a stagnant economy, a foreign policy based on Emily Post’s book of etiquette, and a cavalier attitude toward the Constitution?
You black people (and white, too, for that matter) who voted for this guy due to his melanin content; you’re fine with record unemployment among African Americans as long as your totem is the right color?
You starry-eyed liberals who continue to harbor the illusion, despite an endless series of pistol-whippings by reality, that big government is going to usher in a golden age of equality and fairness and kumbaya communitarian love; you don’t see – you really don’t see – that the kind of leveling you desire will require state-sponsored oppression, and probably violence, on a massive scale?
You investment fat cats and Wall Street Bankers; you believe you can negotiate the kind of sweetheart deals that will lift you above the ruin your man is inflicting on the rest of the country while keeping your own wealth secure. Want to gamble that you’re somehow luckier than every other “savvy” moneybags throughout history who thought (incorrectly) that the crocodile would be satiated when his turn came? I’ll take that bet!
You parasites who think the world owes you a living; what are you going to do when you finally figure out that the “world” was really just the taxpayers, and they’re all tapped out?
Oh, and how about Benghazi? The abandonment of brave American citizens to the jihadists – two of them working a machine gun that cut down some 60 of the attackers before they themselves were killed – represents a more accurate and potent symbol of this administration’s foreign policy than the takedown of al-Qaeda’s chairman emeritus. But, hey, most of you aren’t diplomats, so it’s no big deal, right?
You people have rejected the Judeo-Christian concept of God and have now placed your faith in a herd of spindly sacred cows and a tin-horn trail boss who are all blithely heading for a precipice. I may never be able to get my country back, the America based on the principles of individual liberty and self-reliance. But I promise you this, Obamaphiles: you’re never going to get the America you want. The money and the patience of what’s left of the productive class are going to run out while your plans for Utopia are still on the drawing board. And when the economic and social collapse comes, you’re going to find that the only people who are prepared for the ensuing chaos are (1) your political enemies, and (2) the mass of common criminals whose rapacity won’t be in the slightest degree palliated by your progressive social views.
And in the end, it will all be for nothing. The ascendancy of a collectivist state, even with an invaluable assist from its kapos in the media, cannot permanently turn a human society into an ant hill. Socialism is irrational at its core, and is therefore as doomed to failure as a submarine welded together out of colanders.
Savor your victory while you can, because ultimately you’re going to find it remarkably indigestible.
