I didn't mean to suggest that I was actually sick, in my last post. Just feeling kind of blah, with nothing to say. So, here I am again, because I scared myself last night, watching Chris Matthews with his obvious delight in the gloom and doom predictions for the Democrats. I got to thinking about what would happen to the country if the zealots actually succeeded eventually in taking over the government, and got so scared I had to just go on to bed and pull the covers up over me. I got to thinking about the following questions:
How blatant do lies have to be before voters will reject a candidate?
How many elections will it take before voters realize that it might not have been a good idea to elect candidates who are not capable of governing just because they wanted to defeat the incumbents?
How many years (generations) would it take before Americans start fleeing to other countries looking for the freedoms that have been lost, ones that our ancestors came to this country to find and that our founding fathers established in the Constitution?
Ponder this: the candidate who wins an election immediately becomes an incumbent. So, by the time we discover our mistakes, those lying, inept, overzealous winners might be as entrenched as their predecessors were.
And, it will serve us right.
