When I read an article about some unpopular position or law the Democrats are pushing, I enjoy scrolling down to the Comments section. Inevitably there are many posts about how the Democrats have signed their own death warrants, or wait until 2010 and we’ll get congress back, or in 2012 we’ll be rid of Obama.
Others will yammer away about how the Democrats have made themselves irrelevant and obsolete and are going against the flow of history. Still others talk about taking back the Republican Party from the ground up, eventually purging the RINOs on the national level.
If your go on a Republican website like Red State and express doubts about these things your are called names, ridiculed, and sometimes your discussion is deleted. It is as if even thinking these wistful thoughts might not come to pass is heresy.
I wonder why people think this way. There is absolutely nothing to base these thoughts on beyond wishful thinking. The country is more or less evenly divided between big government statists (the statists include most Republicans) and small government conservatives.
Obamacare and other big government schemes promise something for nothing to most everyone except the evil rich. The media has abandoned its role of watchdog in favor being a cheerleader for the statists. Pro-statist positions are seldom questioned or investigated. So why will people suddenly wake up?
