More Post-Election Thrills

No kidding! Some May Suffer From Post-Election Depression. I’ve been suffering from it since Obama first got elected on 11/6/2008!
Here is an excerpt of a column by Doug Gamble. I feel exactly the same way.
"Well, it was great while it lasted.  But with the reelection of Barack Obama as president, the America we have known all our lives is gone.
Those of us who believe in the virtues that made this country great, self-reliance, hard work, entrepreneurship, individual liberty, responsibility, etc., are now strangers in our own country.  We will now live each day knowing that a majority of our fellow Americans have rejected these long-held beliefs in favor of massive government control over our lives.  Given four more years, the Entitlement Society Obama is building will be complete.  Robbed of the incentive to achieve or even work, increasing numbers of Americans will turn to the government teat.
And it’s possible that we may never again see a Republican president.  Almost half of all Americans now rely on the federal government for support of one kind or another, and there will be so many in this category by 2016 and beyond, election campaigns will be dominated by warnings that to vote against the Democrats is to risk losing benefits.  Most Americans, dependent on the government for survival in the wake of  the economic collapse Obama’s policies will cause, won’t dare take the chance of voting Republican."
I knew iI wasn't alone in feeling this way when I was struck by this phrase by the very rational Daniel Greenfield at Sultan Knish: "The lights have gone out in America now. They may come back. They may not. It's up to us. No one is going to come help us do it. Other countries have America. We have ourselves."

From Instapundit: "Hey, look on the bright side: it will be fun to continue seeing all bad economic news reported as “unexpectedly” in the MSM for another four years."
