Let it burn

It's nice that people are starting to think about 2016 and are getting excited about Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio and stuff. But there's a bigger picture. And that picture is: who cares?

2012 was the turning point where people had a clear choice between freedom and success or captivity and failure and they willingly chose captivity and failure. 

And in that regard, I'm a firm supporter of HL Menken's (pictured above) oft-published quote, "Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard." 

That is, the American people don't deserve to be saved from economic ruin anymore. We're no longer a Christian country and we're absolutely not a center-right country. A center-right country doesn't elect a failed socialist twice in a row. 

Does this mean we should give up? No, we should fight till the end. But it's a losing fight and it will crash hard. And though it will be miserable, it will be worth it to restore the Constitution and a little freedom. In the words of Bane, "When Gotham is in ashes, you have my permission to die."  *

*I know this is very dark, but it sounds cool, and that's really more what I was going for...

(That was the only word to describe the picture and quote as it pertains to our situation.)

Wow thanks! I was in a grumpy mood about the impending collapse of society and stuff.
