What prompted the title of this post is the realization "Will we survive?" I made a comment I think on either Old NFO's blog, Murphys place or at Peters place, that we have had our last free elections in 2012. People voted for Santa Claus instead of Scrooge. Let me 'splain more of what I am talking about.
The democrats promise free stuff in exchange for votes,

I am not sure when it changed, was it a continuation of the 60's counterculture movement when all these new commies freshly indoctrinated at Berkley and other places of higher learning started gathering political power and they started using our sense of laws and fairness against us, we have become the nanny state. When we have a president willing to rule by executive orders and one party gives him a standing ovation despite the oath of office they took, the threat to the rule of law it shows me that the political process is totally corrupted.
We have the democrats, the self professed party of the middle class and the downtrodden, they have claim to large groups of demographics, most of the single women and women with children vote democrats for all the free stuff they get and the promise of security. We have very large groups of blacks voting democrats because of party and ethnic loyalty, the same with the hispanics and 40% of the white males.
Now I will get to the republicans, the GOP which used to stand for the "Grand Old Party", a holdover I believe from the civil war where many veterans from the North went into politics. and they took that name from the Grand Army of the Republic which was the name most associated with the union army. The democrats were strong in the south especially after the era of reconstruction and they pushed a lot of Jim Crow Laws to punish the newly freed slaves and keep them in "their place". Funny how things have turned out. But the republicans are associated with the party of white males, we are the "Scrooge" party because we talk about fiscal responsibility, debt, and paying your own way. Such talk is a killjoy for a lot of people because they have gotten used to the "free stuff" and talk of budgets, fiscal restraints and other things makes them fear for "their goodies" and they act in the predictable manner of voting for the democrats to keep the stuff coming. The idea of running out of money they can't grasp, their attitude is "well take it from the rich bastards, they got rich by screwing somebody over, so somebody needs to screw them over" and your friendly democrat politician step forward to do the job as long as you vote for them. This is how we got 17 trillion dollars in debt. and I don't see the train slowing down.
