Well, our side lost. I fear for our country. I saw this election as the last chance exit on the highway to bankruptcy and doom. The country isn’t going to crumble tomorrow but the national debt is rapidly approaching 100% of GDP and I see no interest on the part of the White House to arrest it or put any pro-growth policies in place.
If this was simply a case of accepting a “new normal” I could live with it, but things can get very much worse and they will unless the president has a change of heart. The reason we don’t have a real recovery is because nothing has been done to create a real recovery. Tax increases, increased regulations on business and government spending don’t stimulate the economy, they stifle it.
As for me, I was wrong. I was too optimistic. I thought there was a silent majority out there that had seen what this president is and was going to reject it. I was wrong. There’s nothing else I can say. Just that I was wrong.
I’m not particularly religious but tonight I will pray because I think only the grace of God can save us now.
