Democrats Deserve to Lose

10:41 AM ET, 10/29/2010

On Tuesday November 2, 2010 the direction of this country could dramatically change for the better. In what would be a direct repudiation of the Obama Administration’s failed policies, the American people should send a signal that the left-wing lurch the country has seen since January 20, 2009 is unacceptable and unwanted. While it looks to be almost a sure bet Republicans will take the House and possibly the Senate, we won’t know for sure until all the votes are counted. Whatever the outcome, the Democrats have shown in less than two years that they are incapable of leading this country and are deserving of being thrown out of office.

Democrats deserve to lose because of the federal deficit spiraling out of control from massive spending during the recession. In 2011 we’re looking at a deficit of $1.4 trillion. We’re borrowing 41 cents out of every federal dollar spent. If current policies remain in effect Americans can count on the largest tax increase in the history of the country just to get out of the red. Defense spending? Social security? Medicare? Medicaid? Funding for all those things could easily collapse.

Democrats deserve to lose because they would rather play politics than actually fix the current ailments of the country. Barack Obama still won’t accept any responsibility for his failures. Time and time again he blames his predecessor for the ailments of the country. Even though in the first 19 months of his presidency Obama’s policies have resulted in the accumulation of more debt than the combined amount accumulated through the presidencies of George Washington to Ronald Reagan.

Democrats deserve to lose for mandating Obamacare. I know for a fact that my health insurance rates are going to double and my level of coverage is going down. You can expect something similar next year and there’s nothing you can do about it because you’re going to be required by law to purchase health insurance. This new socialized system of health care is an entitlement program we don’t need and can’t afford.

Democrats deserve to lose for nationalizing student loans. A lot of students are now dependent to the bureaucratization of the federal government to go to school. Don’t think they can’t raise your rates or cut off your funding completely, because it’s all within the realm of possibility. The government can’t even run Amtrak; you think they can competently run a student loans program?

Democrats deserve to lose for taking GM away from the stockholders and giving it to corrupt unions, for failing to secure the border, for neglecting the war in Afghanistan, for letting a rogue nation like Iran become a nuclear power, for turning their backs on Israel, and for wasting our tax dollars on failed stimulus plans that went to payoff special interests. The list of disappointments goes on and on.

So do Republicans deserve to win? Unfortunately, the jury is still out on that one. The next two years will be perhaps the most important we have ever faced as a nation. If what we’ve recently experienced in the political landscape was a tremor, get ready for an earthquake. If the GOP can’t effectively counter the liberal Obama agenda then we’re in a lot of trouble. But after the ineptitude of the Obama Administration and his cohorts in Congress, we should all be willing to go on a little faith.
