Why I Want a Democratic Landslide (it makes a lot of sense)
October 11, 2012 |
America is a place where just about everybody is angry and frustrated over something but it’s the miserable economy that weights most heavily on many scared and terrified citizens. This Lew Rockwell post raises perfectly sane and valid reasons why it’s best for the Democrats to win in November.
Why I Want a Democratic Landslide
I want to see the Democrats win all the way around; the Presidency, the Senate and the House of Representatives. It is not for the reasons you might think. I have no illusions. I do not think they will do anything to address any of the issues I consider important. I think they will do all the wrong things and it will accomplish nothing but to make things worse. Not that I think the Republicans are any better. They would also accomplish nothing either.
I have no doubt that the United States are headed for a financial crisis that will make 2008 look like a picnic. None of the underlying issues that rose to the surface then have been addressed. They have simply been papered over with lies and flimflammery. Sound and fury signifying nothing…..
Herein is the source of my desire for a Democratic landslide. As I said, I believe the worst is yet to come. There will be a collapse worse than 2008 and if Romney is President what the majority of the people will believe is that his “free market” plan did not work. All they will know is Romney’s “radical capitalism” caused a disaster and the very idea of genuine free market solutions will be set back for decades, if not generations. My hope is that if the Democrats are in charge when the collapse happens, the idea of government as an economic savior will be collapse as well and that maybe a real free market solution will have a chance.
Democrats believe that all they have to do is wave their magic socialist wand, increase spending, increase entitlements, increase the debt and increase taxes, and, presto, everybody in America will be luxuriating in heavenly statist bliss because, well, government is the cornucopia of plenty according to liberal ideology. Republicans tend to go along with the Democrats but they toss in their beloved trillion dollar a year wars to achieve their version of the welfare-warfare state utopia.
Unfortunately, neither Democrats or Republicans have the testicular fortitude to speak the truth to the American people and inform them that we are in deep dodo and must change our evil spending ways if we want to survive. Even worse, America is so far gone that there is really nothing any party can do to stop the pending disaster.
The economy will worsen and suffering will intensify so why would the Republicans want to be left with the stigma of accelerating the misery? Let the Democrats retain that honor! Maybe, just maybe, something sane will emerge out of the ashes like free markets, peace, minimal government and hope for the future.
Meanwhile, conservatives, liberty activist and Libertarians can work on expunging the big spending statists and nasty neocons from the Republican Party.
