Four More Years?

If it's four more years of Obama, that's about as exciting as watching ice melt. It's for certain that the country will endure yet another crippling postponement of having its very serious problems addressed. You don't seriously believe that a Republican House, and that's what it's going to be, is going to advance the slightest iota of the Administration agenda, do you? Which means all the issues that are terrible now are going to just get worse. The environment, infrastructure, distribution of wealth, reform of the tax code, energy, decline of education, and on and on. None of these problems will be dealt with so the pols can posture and bloviate and raise money for their reelections. And where do you think that is going to put us as a people?

All this screeching about restoring America to its former greatness. You hear it from both sides. It's all bullshit. This country is in irrevocable decline. It's been in decline in all of the areas above for years now and all the politicians can give us is more noise. This election is not going to matter in the long run, or even the short run.

But matters can get worse faster. I don't even want to contemplate what the disaster of the election of Mitt Romney would mean for the country. Whatever resistance to the complete ceding over of federal power to the corporations will be gone. They already own the Congress and the Court. Our fate will be sealed for good. We'll be headed for serfdom and nothing will stop it.
