Ron Paul: Election shows U.S. 'far gone'
Is God Damn America OK? Apparently.
Rep. Ron Paul, whose maverick presidential bids shook the GOP, said in the wake of this week's elections that the country has already veered over the fiscal cliff and he sees no chance of righting ship in a country where too many people are dependent on government.
"We're so far gone. We're over the cliff," the Texas Republican told Bloomberg Television's "In the Loop" program. "We cannot get enough people in Congress in the next 5-10 years who will do wise things." [...]
"People do not want anything cut," he said. "They want all the bailouts to come. They want the Fed to keep printing the money. And they don't believe that we've gone off the cliff or are close to going off the cliff. They think we can patch it over, that we can somehow come up with some magic solution. But you can't have a budgetary solution if you don't change what the role of government should be. 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."
Glenn Spencer -- American Patrol Report
When he was running for president, a supporter once called out, "Governor Stevenson, all thinking people are for you!" And Adlai Stevenson answered, "That's not enough. I need a majority."
And, Winston Churchill once said: "The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter."
The problem of an uninformed citizenry has always been with us but ignorance has never been used as a basis for seeking power. No one would stoop to that level, but along came Barack Obama and he used it as the foundation of his rise to power.
Obama would not let anyone know anything about him nor would the mainstream media. He knew that Ben Franklin warned about people who, learning that they could vote themselves money, would end our republic. Thinking this was a great idea - Obama lavished them with free money.
Now it would appear that the only thing that will save the republic is a harsh taste of reality for the really dense.

Outreach to Hispanic voters a waste of time for GOP
