Question Of The Day

Is it over?

I put up a post today on the theory that this is the end of the American Empire. We’ve been saying for the longest time that once an entitlement is in place, it can’t be removed. Sunday, socialized medicine was passed by the House. We can take solace in the fact that the Dems will most likely lose Congress in November, but it’s hard to be optimistic.

I think what brought me down more than anything was John Cornyn saying that they won’t want to repeal all of the bill. In other words, it’s over. It’s done and won’t be undone no matter how many seats the GOP picks up in November. The professional political class…the Lindsey Grahams of the party, will make sure it’s never repealed. They won’t dare “take away” anything from anyone, even though the logic of that argument is totally without merit. The media will apply the pressure, the GOP will cower in fear…rinse and repeat.

And with the permanence of Obamacare, it’s just a slow, steady glide down the hill toward European socialism. Oh sure, we’ll still have some free speech and be able to live decent lives, but not without permission.

I’m despondent and I’m not sure my feelings aren’t warranted.
