We have to do something to woo more minority voters, but with 95% of blacks voting for Obama simply because he is black, and recent studies that show that Hispanics are primarily driven by whoever offers them the most freebies, I am coming to the conclusion that common sense will never prevail with most minorities and we may be past the tipping point for the downfall of the country. The Takers are winning.
Sorry, but a carrot will not soothe a rabid Pit Bull, but a stick may save your life when he wants a bigger piece of you. The problem isn't with Conservative ideas that appear to punish people. The problem is with a liberal media who always portray any rational solution as being radical and draconian. Most people do not know anything beyond what they hear from the media or from their friends who heard something from the media. The media is destroying this country. Liberal politicians are simply some of the tools that they use.
I think Republicans need to prove that they can get something done that shows tangible, positive results.
- The Republican Congress was elected with a mandate to reduce spending and get the budget under control. They have not done that.
- The Republican Congress was elected with a promise to repeal Obamacare. They have not done that.
We need to get the rampant fraud in Social Security Disability, food stamps and welfare under control. The fraud has increased dramatically under Obama, which is buying votes.
We need to shore up entitlement programs that people feel they have invested in all of their lives, such as Social Security retirement, but the only progress has been a lot of lip flapping.
It is not mathematically possible to solve the deficit problem without raising the taxes on everyone, including most of the 47% who pay zero taxes (retirees excluded). Perhaps doing so will put more pressure on politicians to get the spending spree under control. The problem is that this topic has become the kiss of death politically. Sorry boys and girls, there isn't any other way to solve the problem. None of the proposed solutions from either party have any chance of working.
The root of the problem lies with more and more people who see politicians who are lying, cheating and not bound by the same rules as the rest of us. That has caused a huge change in the moral compass of most Americans. Someone in government needs to lead by example, and Obummer is not likely to change his stripes and do something that is good for the country. He is too focused on buying support from the growing number of people looking for freebies.
I currently do not see any hope for turning the country around without a major economic collapse, a revolution, or both. It is coming. It is just a matter of time.
