Last night I said my piece about the Obama election on Facebook. I said it because all over the internet were head-in-sand people saying, "it doesnt matter, they're all the same"; feminists declaring, "the world is safe for vaginas again"; immigrants saying, "Romney is a racist." Everywhere were Obama supporters and their spoon-fed facts spouting all the things they'd heard on TV:
-Romney is a crook because he's rich.
-Romney is a racist because he wants our borders protected.
-Romney is out to destroy women because he's pro life.
-LGBT couples can now proudly hold hands in the sun because Romney lost.
It is such a comfort to know that the right to come into this country undocumented, the right to practice perversion openly, the "business" of playing Robin Hood, and the right to have unprotected, unfettered sex without consequences is worth giving up on living without government intrusion, giving up making medical decisions, giving up on our own people trying to work for us overseas.
It is such a comfort to know that the only way to get a republican in the White House anymore would have to require at least one of the following:
-Removing all media bias (which would mean shutting down all news sources)
-Closing down Hollywood, entertainers like David Letterman and Barbra Streisand
-Getting the RNC to run a campaign as if they weren't still in the 1960's
-Triggering the San Andreas Fault and innundating both coasts (not advocating, just saying)
Because, let's face it- this election wasn't about abortion rights, racism, or even the economy. This election was all about whether we would ever have an election by voters who used critical thinking again, or if we were now doomed to get our thoughts on politics from late night comedy hosts and The View from now on. Guess what? America chose Entertainment Tonight to guide their political destinies from now on.
You see, with critical thinking, Obama would have been held responsible for the trashed economy, his worthless efforts to fix it, and his lying about it by fudging the unemployment numbers. Obama would have been held responsible for allowing what happened in Libya, making us a joke to our enemies and a detriment to our allies. Obama would have been held responsible for his past, his defending of Chicago slumlords, revolutionaries like Dick Ayres, racist preachers like Jeremiah Wright. Obama would have been held responsible for giving guns to drug lords with which our own Border Patrol agants were murdered.
But none of that matters. Why? Because Whoopi Goldberg, Bruce Springsteen, and Jon Stewart says it doesn't.
I was going to copy the entire rant I posted on Facebook, but because I am calmer (and because the "malicious program" Mark Zuckerberg sent to shut me down mid-post hasn't found me here), I'm only going to put the last piece.
Y'know, Michelle Obama said at his first inauguration, "I've never been proud of this country until now." Today, I say, "I've never been ashamned of my country- until now." You can read what I wrote below to figure out why I say it. If you'd have tried to see why she said what she did, maybe things would be different tonight.
Good night, America. I'd say "and God bless, " But I'm really having a problem tonight figuring out just why He would bother.
Oh, and the title of the post? That is the comment put on two-thirds of that post by a good friend. At first, it pissed me off- and truth to tell, it still does- but it is true. And when people start complaining as this nation slides into worse crap over the next four years of an Obama not held back anymore by re-election, perhaps that will be my words of cold comfort to you all. It is what it is.
Just know, America, that I tried to prevent it. But you'd rather trust David Letterman than me.
