America lost in political ‘sea change’

EDITOR:

Man, I feel sorry for President Obama. The mess he inherited this time around is even worse than the mess he inherited from Bush the first time around. Sour grapes over the election? Not really, it’s obvious the Grand Ol Party lost this election due to several reasons, some within their control, some outside their control. Besides a miserable Republican turnout at the polls, Mitt Romney and the GOP just couldn’t seal the deal due to both a increasing disconnect with minority voters, and an ingenious, yet very destructive political “sea change” that has slowly taken place within the Democratic Party over the years.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.” The leaders of today’s Democratic Party have happily discovered a huge political gain along with a sure path to winning elections by shamelessly pimping themselves to the lazy “bottom-feeders” of our nation’s society. I’m not talking about the millions of proud Americans who are out of work or just can’t find a job, but rather the new breed of Democrat voters who are content to flourish by suckling off the system and feel voting for free stuff is more important than love of country or the well-being of our nation.

I can still remember how emotionally moved everyone in our Country was back in 1961, including Republicans, when a newly elected Democratic President named John Fitzgerald Kennedy stated, “Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.” Fast forward 51 years, and for the second time this new generation of Democrats have turned out en masse to vote for Barrack Obama, not because he’s created any jobs or improved our nation in any way over the last four years, but simply because he promises more and more governmental handouts to those already blissfully freeloading off our Nation’s resources.

Even as America circles the drain and faces certain financial collapse, the thought of Obama’s “free stuff” has become more important to some people than the concept of work, and handouts more desirable than a friendly hand-up. This Liberal ideology has taken America one step closer toward Obama’s ultimate goal of an entire nation of remote-controlled welfare recipients who are more than happy to vote Democrat for all the wrong reasons.

Still, no sour grapes, my congratulations go out to all the Liberals; they got what they wanted, Obama won. As for JFK, well, he’s is spinning in his grave.
