No Time to Give Up in the Fiscal Fight

We are at war and we are losing -- and losing badly. Conservatives have lost the battle of the narrative. Obama was brilliant when he said his biggest mistake was failing to tell America a story. He lulled his opposition into somnambulance, and giddy ecstasy over the conceit that conservatives were controlling the message. America, by reelecting the worst President in modern times has shown itself to be an addict. Everyone knows that addicts need to hit rock bottom before they can get better. Americans need to suffer before they let go of socialistic dreams. I never met a tax I liked, but allow the President raise taxes on the most productive and destroy the economy.

For sure, many will not survive -- myself included -- but after the death and destruction, maybe rationalism will prevail and we can put Barack Obama and his disastrous policies behind us.

Obama’s politics of bitterness and envy just won an election. Perhaps the failure of his policies based on the same can save a nation.

If I keep reading the advice of those who are saying we should give Barack Obama what he wants, let him take the American economy into the quicksand and make him own it, I am going to be tempted to agree.

So I’m going to stop reading such things.

With respect to those who offer that strategy, it is flawed on multiple levels. It may not work, it would confuse people about what conservatism is and what it does, and it would slam the brakes on our most valuable passion right now-- the desire to save what we can...
