OP-ED: The next four years
November 17, 2012, 05:00 AM By Dwight L. Schwab Jr.

Dwight L. Schwab Jr.

I never thought I would see the day where half of America has grown into a mass of greedy, lazy, self-serving socialists. I never thought I would see the day where the once-powerful and respectable news media would cave to the love of money and ideology more than the truth.

I never thought I would see this once great nation, the envy of all nations on earth, crumble to the depths of socialism with nothing but a massive pile of debt that looms over our heads and no plan in sight to rid us of this burden.

What we have just witnessed is the end of the United States of America as we knew it. We will never recover from this.

We have tipped the 50 percent mark and will now pay the price of our greed. We have reached the point that Thomas Jefferson predicted would happen. Once people are able to vote themselves free money at the expense of other, hard-working people, we are done.

The people have spoken. They obviously don’t care.

Twenty trillion dollars will be what we owe at the end of this Obama’s next term. That will be $1 trillion in interest every year. Unemployment will hit 15 percent and that will be the new normal. It will be OK with everyone, because this guy is ... "cool.” Gas will be $6-$7 a gallon. Businesses, those that are left, will leave the country in droves. It will no longer be feasible to conduct business in the United States any more.

We will no longer be a manufacturing country. We will be nothing more than a consumer nation that will leach off of the rest of the world.

How pathetic have we become?

We have allowed a decent, God-fearing, caring man like Mitt Romney, who has more knowledge in his little fingernail about how to return this nation to health, go down to a self-serving, lying, Constitution-hating, Declaration of Independence-loathing, racially dividing, class-envying socialist.

Nice work, America. Good luck.

God help us all.
