Seven days ago, the Democrat Party somehow managed to get their pet donkey Barack Hussein Obama voted back into the Oval Office. Now, as the smoke and dust settles and the battle lines are being drawn for the next step in the political war for the future of the United States, things ahead look ominous indeed.
This was an election shot through and through with Democrat fraud and corruption. In more than fifty precincts in Philadelphia and in Cleveland, Mitt Romney recieved not a single vote. The margins in Florida and Ohio were razor-thin, and Chicago-style corrupt machine politics likely delivered particularly Ohio into the clutches of the Democrats. We wonder what the electoral vote total would look like if (and we advocate this) all states were to give their two Senate electoral votes to the overall State popular vote winner, but the electors for the individual congressional districts went to the winner of the popular vote in those districts. Such a system would make it much more difficult to enlist the ward-heelers of a few large urban conclaves to deliver an entire State to a contender.
Be that as it may, Mr. Obama remains the holder of the title of Chief Executive (We at the Alexandria Daily Poop have too much respect for the Office of the President to call that nincompoop President); and the Democrat Party remains in control of the Senate. True, the House remains in Republican hands; but this alone is not enough to prevent Obamacare from going into full effect. The next chance to repeal it will come in two years if by some miracle the Republicans can obtain a 61 seat majority in the Senate. And the certainty that the ravages of Obamacare will wreak havoc with businesses large and small spell big trouble for the "little guy" that Obama and his handlers like to pretend that they're on the side of.
Employers are right now drawing up plans to go to a part-time only work force and/or make individual employees "independent subcontractors" who will be required to pay BOTH parts of the FICA tax. Investors are getting nervous, and as New Year's Eve approaches so does the "fiscal cliff" and sequestration of defense funding. It is not too far-fetched to imagine the stock market collapsing and taking the economy with it before Mr. Obama is re-inaugurated. If this happens, the swearing-in ceremony may have to be moved to a fortified bunker deep inside the Pentagon.
The Democrat Party leadership speaks of the need for "bipartisanship" while of course they remain the most rabidly partisan entity on the planet (with the possible exception of the Taliban). The Democrat definition of "bipartisan" means "Republicans drop the soap". And the Democrat leadership have made provison to ensure that (1) they are fortified personally against the misery about to befall everyone else and (2) no matter whether the Republicans cooperate or not, all the misery caused by the Democrats will be blamed on the Republicans.
It is the opinion of we here at the Alexandria Daily Poop that this nation is headed toward the Second American Civil War. Already there is an ominous drum-beat as twenty-some states have placed petitions with the Obama administration to seceed from the Union. A few may actually do so, chief among them Texas.
When Texas became a State, they specifically reserved the right to quit the Union and - the First Civil War notwithstanding - maintain that right to this day. Should Texas do so, we shall relocate there. And it shall be our hope that when the South indeed rises again, our native Indiana shall see the error of her ways and join the South; and that the State of Ohio shall vote in her legislature to cut the far northeast corner of the state loose and join the new Confederacy.
Or possibly the Union might be preserved. All depends on how well we weather the disaster which is approaching as obviously and unstoppably as Katrina did in 2005 and Sandy did back in October. The only silver lining to the approaching storm front is that every commoner who is not a member of the highest levels of the Democrat Party will feel the sting. And try as they might, the Democrat Party will not be able to lay the misery at the feet of George W. Bush and the Republican Party; but it will be painfully obvious to every single working person that their tribulation is the handiwork of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Barack Hussein Obama. Then (and provided we can survive to November 2014) there is at least some hope that we might save the Union. The alternative is too horrible to contemplate.
Meanwhile, the government has invited you to change the channel and entertain yourself to an amusing little farce on PBS titled "When Generals Obey Their Privates". We hear there's an episode in there where Big Bird has a private moment with young Elmo called "DO Tickle, DON'T Tell".
