We Are Doomed

Today is a sad day for Libertarians and the liberty movement. Republicans may be upset and angry today as well, but their future looks much brighter. I believe Mitt Romney's chances of winning in November just got a whole lot better. Listening to Limbaugh in the car a few minutes ago, he has already pivoted and is juicing up the anger and transforming it into motivation. Limbaugh says Obama was planning on running against conservative justices and one Uncle Tom on the court. Now all he's got is Obamacare, which lots of Americans hate and which will bring out the Republican base, and a crappy economy. Good luck with that, Mr President. So the Democrats win the day, but may have sealed their fate in the longer run. So Republicans at least have reason to hope. But for liberty minded folks, there is no joy in Muddville. Romney is no consolation for us. Romney invented Obamacare, for crying out loud. People seem to have forgotten that. Isn't that amazing? And yet he stands up there and with a straight face says on day one of his presidency, he'll work to repeal it. And Republicans believe this? I'm at a loss. I remember someone saying once, in reference to Britain, that once you add healthcare to the welfare state, all is lost. From that point forward, all conservatives have left to argue is that they can run the socialist state more efficiently than the socialists. There is no way to spin this as anything but a disaster.
