Immigration Reform, Green Jobs and Energy, Higher Taxes on everyone, Universal Single Payer Healthcare, Increases in entitlement and welfare programs, larger more powerful Government, and small, weaker, less free individuals, no budget, no end to millitary interventionism, no end to Patriot Act and further intrusion into our civil liberties, and no accountabillity of any kind for the Government, in what it spends, how it spend, who it kills or what it does. Oh, and four more years of any opposition to any policy being branded as racist and selfish and hateful.
I.e. business as usual.
For the "greater good" and "we're all in it together" will be said many, many times in the near future, to explain why some of "we" will have alot less of our money and freedom, and others will be the beneficiaries of our state mandataed charity and forgiveness.
I didn't mean where do "we" go physically. I meant what can the not so average American that wants to do for himself and his family do to prosper? If you are willing to work, take chances, etc, how do you make your mark in this system? How do we play their game to get a piece of the pie?
Also is there any way to not just give up and let the country fall into the abyss? Many of us here see that what we have today is totally unsustainable. The American government is supposed to be by the people and for the people. How do we keep America being the land of opportunity and freedom that it was designed to be? Is there a road back to prosperity rather than redistribution?
