(I inserted the link):
“If the current polls hold, Barack Obama will win the White House on November 4 and Democrats will consolidate their Congressional majorities, probably with a filibuster-proof Senate or very close to it. Without the ability to filibuster, the Senate would become like the House, able to pass whatever the majority wants.
Though we doubt most Americans realize it, this would be one of the most profound political and ideological shifts in U.S. history. Liberals would dominate the entire government in a way they haven't since 1965, or 1933. In other words, the election would mark the restoration of the activist government that fell out of public favor in the 1970s. If the U.S. really is entering a period of unchecked left-wing ascendancy, Americans at least ought to understand what they will be getting, especially with the media cheering it all on.”
In 1965, under a Democratic supermajority, LBJ saddled the nation with Medicare and Medicaid. Prior to that, the federal government virtually never ran a deficit. Subsequent to that, ever larger deficits became the norm. Without major reform, it is a mathematical certainty that the catastrophe of that Democrat supermajority WILL kill this nation. And, frankly, the odds of death far exceed the odds of reform. Nobody wants to give up “free” candy.
In 1977, under a Democratic supermajority which would make the pending Democratic supermajority look downright moderate, Democrats created the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (which, after being “enhanced” under the Clinton administration, went on to serve as the primary root cause of the current housing mess).
Only 15 months after taking power (without a supermajority) the impact of the Democrats on federal deficit spending was already dramatic. If it comes to pass, this Democrat supermajority is certain to further expand Entitlements to the point of fully nationalizing healthcare. That will only hasten the demise which LBJ already guaranteed.
Canadians seem to have come to their senses. They recently rejected the very Socialist agenda which Americans now appear to embrace (thanks to overpowering propaganda from our so-called “journalists”, “educators” and “entertainers”).
Will we wake up in time to prevent this national tragedy? Time will tell.
