Articles: If the GOP Cavalry Doesn't Come
An interesting take on the future that mirrors something I have previously said here, regardless of who wins in November the Republicans are on very thin ice because they are not standing up for limited government and actual reduced federal spending. If they don't repeal and replace Obamacare, then it is likely that they will be replaced by the Angry Joe Party because the vast majority of Americans (60%) consider themselves conservative (fiscal that is). If neither party is willing to represent them then a new party will emerge out of the angry middle.
Romney will be little better than the Joker because he has no plan other than to be President. He isn't prepared to make tough economic decisions and tell it like it is because he like all politicians wants to be re-elected. Because he fails to realize is that if he doesn't had a real plan than he will be the sitting President when the music stops on the debt merry-go-round. Our spending is going to bring this country to its knees unless we do some actual cutting and we all know that isn't going to happen with Mitt, so a Republican will be left holding the bag when the bottom falls out. That is only if he can win in November, which is still a dicey at best.
It is up to the angry middle to force change in this country and limit the wasteful spending in Washington. We need real entitlement reform (Chilean Model) because the bills are coming due fast and the credit cards are all maxed out. We need to stop making everything a federal issue with huge expensive programs to fix issue better left to the people. It is human nature to want to end all suffering, but that doesn't happen by stealing from everyone and giving it to the few (an ever growing group). This doesn't lead to a self-sufficient people willing to work to achieve, but rather a wasteful, lazy nation where the few (an ever shrinking group) provide for the many.
We are at a tipping point and I think both parties are ripe for change because this country is made up of center right and center left people. The center part being fiscal conservative, while the right and left are social issues, right now neither party is center anything! We need to drag them both back to their senses or replace them with new ones that understand the difference, but more importantly understand the center part.
