“Brother, you asked for it.” Those are the words of Francisco D’Anconia in Atlas Shrugged to the moochers in America after they had been granted all of their big-government desires and controls and the producers went on strike. Of course, predictably, the nation soon collapsed. Atlas Shrugged is a work of fiction. America 2012 is a nightmare reality we all are living.
AWD has been silent since Tuesday night. Predictably, I was pretty upset at the election results. I hoped there were enough responsible Americans who would turn out to vote for the lesser of the two evils. Mitt Romney is a good, smart, honest man and someone who is very accomplished in business. Exactly the kind of man liberals love to hate. However, Romney is just the latest GOP moderate to lose to a Democrat in a presidential election. Just another moderate who looks first to government. Ford, Dole, McCain and now Romney. Bush ran as conservative but governed like the big-government moderate he is. Romney would have been much better (less worse) than Obama but he didn’t have the dedication and resolve to do what is necessary to put America on the right track. We damn sure know Boehner and McConnell don’t.
Romney was never the first choice of conservatives in the Republican Party. Romney never reached out to the Tea Party movement because he assumed he could expect their vote without working for it. The Republican Primary dragged on for months too long because Romney couldn’t close the deal. He was banking his election on the fickle independent and moderate voters without working to bring conservatives to his side. The RNC convention was devoid of conservatives while they invited RINO bastids like Chris Christie to talk about his fat ass self. It’s the predictable move for the Republican Party. They trash the conservative values of their base while trying to win the hearts and minds of those who don’t vote for them. 2012 is just another reminder.
Back to the election. As angry as I was Tuesday night, I was peaceful Wednesday morning. I have worked hard for four years to try and return America to the principles that made us wealthy and strong. Wednesday morning, I realized the country has changed too much from the days of Reagan to be saved. Much like an alcoholic that must hit bottom to realize he or she must change, the United States must face the terrible consequences of re-electing Obama. We’re already seeing companies laying off workers, stock market sell-offs, and the reduced value of the dollar. It will get worse. Much worse. So be it. Brother, you asked for it.
I fully anticipate Obama to legislate through executive order for the next four years. The most dangerous thing I expect him to do is give amnesty to 30+ million illegals. They will readily become Democrat voters and America will never again see a Republican President, or a Republican governor and legislation in the southwest US.
ObamaCare is going to fully bankrupt us (if the other spending doesn’t do it first) and destroy our medical system at the same time. A twofer. Obama will enact Cap and Trade and tax the hell out of any producers left in the country while controlling how much energy we can use. Total control over you and your money is the desired effect.
I fully expect we will see new laws or executive orders banning “hate speech.” It will be illegal to criticize Islam,Obama or other PC groups. I don’t expect the Republicans to put up much of a fight over this. I told RedStater on election night I will be surprised to see this website up and running in a year.
Obama will come hard after our guns. The Second Amendment is the most dangerous threat to Washington and it’s the biggest target. I don’t think he will overtly try to ban guns but it wouldn’t surprise me to see huge taxes and fees on firearms and ammo. Much like what liberals have done to cigarettes.
The biggest threat to civil order in America is the collapse of the dollar. There will not be riots until the first welfare check doesn’t arrive. If the dollar is replaced as the global currency, its value will collapse to reflect the billions (trillions?) printed by the Federal Reserve. How does $15 gas sound? $10 loaf of bread? While no one in political office wants to admit, there is a sizable number of violent, uneducated, unskilled, lazy welfare dependents who are completely dependent for survival by the money taken from producers they receive monthly in the form of welfare, food stamps, Section 8 housing, etc. If the dollar collapses, you’ll want to be somewhere far away from the mooching millions. And loaded for bear, too.
I wrote to someone the other day that I am no longer Dagny Taggart but now I am John Galt on steroids. Dagny (in Atlas Shrugged) was a producer who believed her efforts could save a corrupt system controlled by the federal government. John Galt believed it must all collapse and be rebuilt from the dust on Constitutionally sound principles. America 2012 is not the America we knew. It will get worse. Who is John Galt? AWD is John Galt!
The good news is there are still a whole hell of a lot of people that think like us! A lot of them voted. Many didn’t. I hope there will be some courageous governors who will arm themselves with the 10th Amendment and stand up against Obama and the federal government. Even if it comes to drawing a line in the sand. What’s Obama going to do? Send in the troops? Well, we have troops too.
The other good news is the flame of liberty still burns bright in tens of millions of patriotic Americans. They will not take that from us. We will not give it to them. I believe most of us are prepared to fight for it. In hard times, heroes emerge and inspire us. I wore my “Breitbart Is Here” t shirt on election night in honor of an old friend no longer with us. He inspired millions. Who will step up and take us to the next level? Could it be you?
We will continue to do what we do at AWD. I’m saddened but not discouraged. Plus, we can always ridicule our enemies in both parties, Hollywood and abroad. Nobody does that better. And we’re just the guys to do it!
Guns up, dudes and dudettes! If I’m going down, it won’t be to a Chicago community activist! Join me!
