April 29, 2009, shortly after Arlen Specter announced he was switching parties giving Democrats 60 seats in the Senate (pending the seating of Al Franken), when all appeared lost, I wrote:
What history shows us is that a liberal, blame-America-first Democratic President, urged on by a liberal, blame-America-first Democratic Congress, is a prescription for political self-destruction. Leave Democrats to their own devices, and they will screw themselves politically, just when they are at the height of power….
So I’m not depressed about the long-term future of the country, although the next few years will be tough politically. The Democrats will screw up big time, as they did during the Carter years, and the damage they cause will be generational. But the clean-up is worth looking forward to, even if the mess is not.
Read the comments to that post. It’s like opening a time capsule.
Man, I hope you are right.
Every day, I feel like crying when I think about the damage being done to our country right now. I wonder every day what America will look like when my children are adults.
It scares me. What scares me even more is the fact that there are quite a few Americans who don’t get it or don’t care.
Vote tomorrow, and get out the vote. Because I can’t really say “I told you so,” unless the American people tell us so tomorrow.
And then we can begin the clean-up.
