NY-26 Kathy Hochul Wins: Medicare, are our Seniors Adult Enough to Handle the Truth?

Posted by Troy on 25th May 2011 in Current Events, Political

NY-26 went to a Democrat.  The news organizations are trying to say that this is the GOP’s watershed moment–that the American people have spoken and loudly proclaimed “Hands off our benefits!”

We’re broke, people.  That’s pure and simple.  No matter how you cut it, we are going to have to cut something.  We can cut defense, but ask yourselves, would you rather have a pitiful retirement plan in the form of Social Security and Medicare, or the world’s most kick-ass army?  The only reason Europe can afford all these social programs is that we are the world’s police force.  If we convert our defense money into benefit money, who is going to protect us?

Things have to change.  That’s all there is to it.  This next election is a turning point.  We are at a fork in the road right now.  We can move towards a welfare state or a freedom state.  A friend remarked to me today how he hasn’t heard anyone use the expression “Hey, it’s a free country,” in years.  That’s because, deep down, we realize that we’re not nearly as free as we used to be.  We live in a world where sending a joke tweet about suicide bombers can land a 13 year old boy in an interrogation room with the Secret Service.  This next election will determine if we want to face the truth and own up to what needs to be done or if we want to believe the lies we’re told and hide our heads in the sand.  If Obama wins re-election and (GOD FORBID) the Democrats take both houses again, we are done.  Period.

You must read 2084.  Everything I wrote about is happening faster than I predicted.  I will get it out this weekend.

Long Live the Constitution of the United States of America!
