Thanks for the wonderful column. I'm short-term pessimist, long-term optimist. Things will get so bad that the country will turn back to the Repubs, but probably not until the healthcare system is totally trashed and the country attacked by jihadists (2016? Or do we have to wait until after Hillary--let's see, that's 2024). Sometimes, it takes a lot of shocks to the solar plexis to get the country awake. Then we will return to the Lord, and He will shepherd us. In the meantime, the LGBT and lefties are in the driver's seat. We may end up effectively annexed by Mexico.
