2012 in review

At Thanksgiving, embracing the winds of change and increasing our faith

The Democratic Party will continue to promote policies that hurt our country, and that hurt will continue to send people running to the Democratic Party for "help." When Democrats win elections, they make long-term calculations: They would never have been able to bribe large groups of the population if they had never gotten into office, and they have been rewarded for this with still more power by these same groups. Republicans have done their share of bribery (see Medicare Part D), but to less avail. True conservatives--the anti-bribery minority--simply cannot compete with this. Because of that, the American spirit will likely continue to erode, and 2012 will go down as a watershed.

The Obama administration tried to hide many of its own policies--Obamacare regulations, Dodd-Frank regulations, etc.--until after the election, and so, 2012 will go down as the last year in American history without these new apparatuses. It is hard to explain, and hard even to imagine, the "fundamental change" that is about to take place in this country.

Despite the Mayan prophecies, the world didn't end this year. It might have felt like it would at times, but the end is still to come.
