Be careful what you ask for. You might just get it. The American people have spoken. They want more spending, more debt, bigger government and less liberty. By re-electing Barack Obama and putting more Democrats in the House and Senate the American voters clearly stated that they believe Obama's bullllshittt will somehow work. Regardless of how rediculously stupid this is we still live in a Democratic Republic where people are entitled to what they vote for. Sometimes the only way people can realize how dumb they are is to let them have what they ask for. This is one of those times.

Just like with children and telling them how painfull it is to put your hand on a hot stove, some are dumb enough to want to find out for themselves rather than listen to their parents. No nation in history has ever taxed it's way to prosperity or borrowed it's way out of debt but apparently 51% of American Voters think we will be the first to do so. Obama has convinced people that he can "invest" tax dollars in failed companies and grow our economy. He has sold the notion that More Government Control is good for us and that it's time to punish successful people in the name of FAIRNESS. So let's get on with and let everyone see for themselves how stupid this is.

This is not the first time we've done this but those who don't study history are bound to repeat it. Franklin Rosevelt served as President from 1933 to 1945 and during his entire 12 years thought he was going to solve America's economic problems with big government and government spending. It never worked and had it not been for WWII the Great Depression would have gone of for several more years. Like Obama, Rosevelt thought he was going to pick the winners and losers based on his notion of "FAIRNESS" and bring America to a more just conclusion. The thing neither of these men understood was that the incentive to do your best is individual, not collective and not arbitrary. It does not come from Government but clearly from the people.

Hannity to Coulter: "You sound like Obama." Fightin' words:


SH: So are you saying that, for PR purposes, that they should give in to Obama on the tax rate?
AC: Not exactly, I--Well, yeah, I guess I am. 
SH: You're saying capitulate to Obama? We don't have a revenue problem, Ann.
AC: We lost the election, Sean.  

Hannity seems genuinely flummoxed by Coulter's capitulatory attitude, but does she have a point?  Recent polling has been gruesome...
