"The general who advances without coveting fame and retreats without fearing disgrace, whose only thought is to protect his country and do good service for his sovereign, is the jewel of the kingdom." Sun Tzu. With the Senate and the WH in the hands of the Democrats, and the mainstream media salivatating to attack Republicans in the event of a government shutdown... a wise Republican general will wait two years to begin a serious advance. Nothing positive would result from a Battle of the Little Big Horn over the Budget.

The program for human psychological development was written during the hundreds of millions of years of hominid evolution. It has always required balanced parenting by both a mother and a father. A child's loss of this parental love and guidance always causes impairment of the adult personality. A society falls apart to the degree that such parenting is abset.

Actually... it was Nixon's opening to China that kick started the last 40 years of globalization and the exportation of US middleclass jobs. We've lost many many times more jobs to China than because of any illegal immigration. Moreover, Nixon was also responsible for creation of the EPA, whose regulations are now the chief impediment to an expanding US economy. Buchanan is an emotional bigot who always reconstructs history to support his preferred prejudices.

Peer pressure is an incredibly powerful inhibitor for independent human behavior. Members of our national media, for example, may actually recognize that our current President is incredibly incompetent, but they will not dare to give voice to such sentiments our of terror that it would mean career suicide.
There is no cure for the liberal guilt that resulted in Obama becoming President despite a severe deficit of qualifications. It is driven by unconscious self hated derived from repressed developmental traumas. Our media elites are fundamentally incapable of any objectivity that threatens their highly defensive personalities. They will pooh pooh this issue as a right wing fabrication.
Sadly, we are following the same path as in the UK... where today's Tory party is many quantum removed from what it was in the days of Margaret Thatcher. Romney hit the nail on the head with his 47% comment... and that number will only grow as the tsunima of boomers continue to retire. California has always been our cutting edge state, and there is no reason to believe that the nation as a whole will not follow that path toward one party rule and government dominance of every aspect of our lives. Just as we are all mortal... so is the country... and it appears that we are headed for a hospice.
Narcissism is a psychological defense against awareness of self hatred. It's origin derives from the trauma of parental abandonment in the development stage. The infant/child has no choice but to develop a grandiose but false sense of self in compensation for his or failure to develop healthy internal structures. As an adult, the narcissist projects his or her self hatred onto others. Eventually, the narcissist destroys his or her own self by alienating those who have provided the external support for an empty personailty.
