Long Days Journey Into NightFor the record, I'd like to state some statistics as of November 6, 2012:
46 million people on food stamps
50% of Americans receiving some type of government assistance
Average national gas price: $3.40
Current estimated GDP growth rate 1.7%
What disturbs me most is apparently the majority of Americans find these statistics acceptable. I guess the conventional wisdom that when things get bad enough people will demand change is no longer valid. And we haven't even seen the hammer-blow that ObamaCare will bring.
As President Obama has done nothing to try and correct these trends during his first 4 years, and he's given no indication that he'll change course during his next 4, my greatest fear is that if the House can't keep the liberal agenda in check, we'll be looking back on these statistics 4 years from now as the good old days.
I'm just sorry my family can't get out of the car before it sails off the cliff.
