Once again Ron Paul says what needs to be said. And he's 100% right. People say they want change, but they don't want to make the hard choices that change requires. "Fix it... just don't take anything away from _ME_" is the way most people think and vote.
"As long as you think we have to police the world and run this welfare state, all we are going to argue about is who will get the loot."

Sure, a meteor might hit us, or an earthquake might knock the feet from under us, but those are uncertainties. In my opinion, the coming economic calamity is a no-brainer.

With all of the things that are going to happen if our "Fearless Leaders" and the "Great Uniter" dont get it together, 2013 is going to certianly be a year to remember I think. Unfortunately I dont know if thats going to be the stopping pioint though. We will just have to sit back and see if this "Liberal Utopian" pipe dream is all that its been sold to be.
As usual, Dr. Paul nails it right on the head. Unfortunately, the parties in question are going to learn from this election, and adapt their platform to cater closer to their electorate's wishes. Oh, boy, over the cliff we go.
