Is history repeating itself?

(Continued)

Unlimited power in the hands of the progressives who dominate the Democratic party would destroy us by the year 2050.

Unlimited power in the hands of the Republican party would take longer, but the result would be the same. We would become a nation of grinding poverty, unemployment like we have never seen, riddled with crime and unable to defend ourselves.

Half of the population of voting age is addicted to foolishness. As long as they have their staged "reality" shows, the Kardashians, WWE Raw and People magazine, they are happy. They have no interest in the future of the country and are too lazy to think about it. About 40 percent of registered voters will vote Democratic no matter what and about 30 percent will vote Republican no matter what.

Of the remainder, most will cast their ballors for the smoothest talker who can convince them he's the nicest guy.

Too many politicians of both parties care most about getting elected and re-elected. They sponsor poorly-written legislation to score political points and never consider the unintended negative consequences.

Much legislation does little to solve problems and the unintended consequences create other problems.

Will we ever wake up and see the light? Nobody wants to think about the unthinkable but it is past time to start, and to act. Otherwise, we will pay a terrible price.
