I do not know who will occupy the posts or positions in Obama’s second term...this I do know...they will have the same mind set as the prior occupant; and that Obama does not like doing his job, but loves the fringe benefits. What “we the people” have done is create the “perfect storm” that will engulf this nation and the world in a conflict that can only be described as “GOOD” VS. “EVIL”. This Nation and the World are divided between good and evil; and divided…this Nation and the World cannot stand…ONE or the other must GIVE or GO!

Actual governing will continue to be done by his Czars. Obama will continue to ignore the Constitution and Congress with his Executive Orders… Republicans will most likely fade into the background, especially if they give-in to tax hikes without MEANINGFUL spending cuts…Jobs and the economy will continue their downfall; giving way to the physical cliff to overtake America and the World…The “Middle East” a powder keg ready to explode and leaving Israel to fend for herself…American values as well as its prestige will continue their decline.

Amid all the political and media hoopla about the "fiscal cliff" crisis, there are a few facts that are worth noting.

First of all, despite all the melodrama about raising taxes on "the rich," even if that is done it will scarcely make a dent in the government's financial problems. Raising the tax rates on everybody in the top two percent will not get enough additional tax revenue to run the government for ten days.

And what will the government do to pay for the other 355 days in the year?

All the political angst and moral melodrama about getting "the rich" to pay...
