The key is the vote and it's accuracy. We have let the Republic morph into a Democracy. Democracy as a government throughout history, has morphed into a dictatorship. What makes anyone think this time will be different? The lazy, shiftless or self centered takers will simply keep voting themselves a bigger piece of the pie. Those that pander to them for their vote will keep buying their vote with your money. However one feels about Republicans or Democrats the fact remains the Democrats are the ones using your money to buy this groups votes. Quite frequently fraudulent at that. The only viable solution is to keep voting Democrat until the system collapses. HKC
The beginning of a new year is often a time to look forward and look back. The way the future looks, I prefer to look back -- and depend on my advanced age to spare me from having to deal with too much of the future.

If there are any awards to be given to anyone for what they did in 2012, one of those rewards should be for prophecy, if only because prophecies that turn out to be right are so rare.

With that in mind, my choice for the prediction of the year award goes to Bret Stephens of the Wall...
