I have come to the conclusion that the GOP is losing elections ON PURPOSE! Most of the so-called "conservative" republicans are content to let the liberals win elections because they like the power they have over people and want to stay in office, not to advance conservative principles, but to make more money and get more power. They realize that they can't espouse "raising taxes" and "government dependence" without losing their own jobs, so they quietly support people they know will lose elections. Unfortunately, there are few true "conservatives" in Congress. These people are vastly out-numbered by true "politicians" (people that love the power and the money that they can amass while in office).

Another reason for TERM LIMITS. These people have much more power than the TAXPAYER. They have the power because of TAX PAYER MONEY. Do your research and open your minds.
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...
