Eight months after the election I still continue to be amused by all the back and forth in this newspaper over political philosophy. Obama won and, as a country, we have progressively changed how we think and the values of self determination, innovation and hard work have been replaced with entitlement treasure hunting.
Seven-plus percent level of unemployment is now “full employment,” and more government debt in the last four years than the previous eight years, is the new norm with trillion dollar annual deficits as far as the eye can see.
Bottom line is we have a new economy where there are more people in the wagon than there are pulling the wagon. As citizens we have two choices: Work harder to help pay for the record number of people living off of government programs or just vote democrat and jump in the wagon ... Hey, it beats working!
