The GOP's base, the white conservative "greatest generation" is dying off, being replaced by young voters who've spent the better part of their lives being indoctrinated by left wing, liberal educators. Throw in stupid women, the entitlement class, blacks now turning out in large numbers to vote and the ever increasing Hispanic population, and it will take a miracle for the Dems to ever lose another presidential election.

I think people are missing what the shift really is about. Forget the Left vs Right thinking. It does not really matter.

It is a problem of 2 groups I will define as Providers ( the 47% that Romney got in trouble for speaking about ) this group pay all the Welfare yet dos not use it. The percentage is not inclusive of Social Security or Medicare. They used to be the Silent Majority now the Silent Minority

The 2nd group are the Takers they are a greater now , for the first time in the history of the USA. They live on Public assistance in its different forms.

Perhaps now you can see the dilemma. This is a quote from Air Alex Fraser Tytler (1742-1813) He was a Scottish Historian. The history of the quote is interesting it was found in letter regarding a book about an earlier civilization it seems.

I find it fits well with exactly what we are faced with today.


"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess of the public treasury. From that time on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the results that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship....

The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from great courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependency back again to bondage."

not sure how i feel about that statement other than that if it turned left it can turn around again and go right,

"permenently center left" i think is not possible or permanent in any direction is not possible,


what do yall think of that persons statements?
Unfortunately, yes. the country is now dominated by the poor and uneducated and immigrants that are used to the government owning the people and therefore responsible for them. The educated, hard working, Constitution believing folk are in the minority.

The Philly and Richmond Fed branches have reported BIG misses on economic growth (biggest since 09), plus rail traffic, after being pretty stable for the past four years, just took a big drop.
Benji better get a move on.

LMAO! I was going to post that pic of Mt. Kenya, and then I thought that maybe it would be best to leave his dreams intact.

When you have more people putting into the economic pool (Read, educated right wingers) the economy continues to grow, providing for all.

When you have more people taking out of the economic pool, it shrinks, maybe to the point of extinction, providing for none.

5th grade economics.

No, the big crash where the dollar collapses and we default on our loans. This is coming soon and will lead to one of two scenarios: this country waking up and adopting a newfound sense of fiscal restraint, or complete societal breakdown leading to martial law and government tyranny. Either scenario potentially involves people going after corrupt political/business elites, which is why gun control is being pushed so heavily right now.

when i read that, i about crapped myself, i knew things are happening and they dont want an uprising of an armed populace,

but to say it like that really scares me ALOT,

and in other words they KNOW they are screwing up the country and economy and they dont want any resistance when it happens,


why would they PURPOSELY ruin the economy and country?

why do they want to enslave us? what benefit would that give them to be in complete power? obama is already the most POWERFUL man in the free world, there isnt much more he could obtain, so again, having said that, why does he want total control? what else could he gain?

HexHead nailed it.

Changing demographics.

I would also add the Permanent Militarization and Perpetual War practices of America which soaks up an incredible amount of money... making that money unavailable for real growth and investment in the economy.

Yeah...and how's that working out?

I think there's a differnce between the crash that we forsee and the downturn of four years ago. That's called recession/depression and happens and is recovered from with sane fiscal policy. Far from the economic collapse that we are headed for now that is being caused by the always failing progressive policies that have been put on steriods under this left turn you speak of.

I believe you have summed up the situation very well.

Google "Cloward and Piven".

In a nutshell, it's about swelling the welfare rolls to the point the entire system collapses and putting the government in control of most, if not all, private enterprises.

And these left-wing loons think this will actually work.

Whichever way the media goes, so goes the general, politically uneducated population. Remember, most people are more concerned with the outcome of American Idol than any election. They rely on the "unbiased" media to provide them with quick snippets of information on how to vote.

how do they think when everything collapses "they" will gain control? that they will "rise to power"? i see they and their own in hiding, on the run or be hanging around lamp poles outside gas stations. there's going to be a purge like never seen before in the history of the world. darwin is a cruel master to the stupid and lazy...thank god!

The media will gladly perpetuate the misguided ideas of this Marxist, all the way up to the final collapse of what was once a great country. More people every day are slowly being indoctrinated by Obama's media with the idea that the "rich" are controlling too much, and that is why they are not doing well. After the collapse, they'll blame the rich and the evils of capitalism, no matter how misguided that is.

The republicans have lost the working man. They see him as overhead. They feel he should be happy to pay higher taxes so his boss can afford to give him more work in which he is underpaid.

It used to be the working man was the backbone of the country, but for republicans it's the small business owner. How horrible it would be to make him pay the same percent in taxes as his workers. Yeah whatever.

The real crash is coming. Bigger than both of those combined.

The US can't keep printing money, buying its own bonds to prop up the market and borrowing $.46 of every dollar to keep a facade of security in front of the people.

When almost half of the country depends on the other half for the real economic income of the failing federal government it is a huge ignored warning sign. What happens when it is 51% of the country living off of 49%?
