- Feeling Politically Despondent

After continual surrender to Obama and the Democrats, the Republicans seem to me to lack the capacity for change. The Democrat's typical denial of reality will eventually bring on another 9-11 style event, and that will wake America back up. But the Republicans that win back control of the government in that next election won't deserve it. They are too similar to the Democrats, and see themselves as a different brand of anointed ruler. They see themselves as the 'morally valid' anointed rulers, which is EXACTLY the same way the Democrats see themselves.

My big problem of course is with America. Power should revert back to the people and the government should be a part time, low paid, less involved entity than it is. But the people don't want that. They want "free" government stuff. They want the government to save them and to be their parent, and husband and father. And people like that are not fit for self rule.

It's a sad statement, but I think I've finally become convinced that we really are at the end of the American experiment.

Rand Paul gives me hope.

AFter reading today's Sultan Knish, I believe he is correct that Like Clinton, Obama is setting the stage for the next 9/11 through a catastrophic middle-east policy that can be summed-up by Hillary's shrill rant at the Senate Hearing: "What difference at this point does it make?"

That will be the slogan of the Obama Administration going forward and the basis for her presidential ascencion.

The media is shielding her. Although Rand Paul put it plainly in defining negligence.

Rand would give me hope if he were ever anything but a bit player. But entrenched in power is a group of people that don't go easily - on both sides.

I don't think Rand will ever be much more than a less crazy sounding version of his father. I hope that's not so, but I fear it is.

I thinbk Rand is developing a voice and a message. While Ron Paul was trashed as a kook (I was never a fan) his domestic message struck a chord with a lot of people.
Rand is currently being castigated by the media as bully or someone angry that he will never qualify for POTUS based on yesterday's correct and succinct identification of the failure of Benghazi.
Hillary will definitely run for POTUS and the press will carry her bags, but she's getting banged-up by her own admin.

We're not ready for a GOP primary field, but we are ready for some people to step up and call it as they see it.

Meanwhile, "Mish" is getting pounded by his blog commentors on his faux 2A stance.

Thats where ive been since am post election. Really none of what I think matters...I honestly believe another 9-11 woudnt shift anything enough. The 52% living off the government doesnt care if the twin towers go down. Not as long as it doesnt change their handout. It is what it is.

I am starting to wonder if this whole thing will play out like something out of a Matthew Bracken novel.

IMO, the hope for the republic may lie in it being dissolved. At some point, if things go bad enough, a governor with the backing of a legislature may tell the Feds to go pound salt.

The Feds will deny the state funds and the state will deny the Feds tax revenue from its citizens.

Think multiple 911s on the same day, and an administration that doesn't do anything. That just MIGHT get the American public to wake up, but I don't know if we would like the America that emerges from that war.
