John Liming has a few questions concerning an America led by Mitt Romney.
I am not sure whether or not the U.S. has cultivated a new culture of idiots but that is really beside the point.
What I really find myself concerned about is what a major take over of the government by the right wing in November might really look like and what it could portend for America’s future.
Would it really mean the eventual end of social security, medicare, medicaid, food stamps, aid to dependent children, WIC, housing assistance, student college loans and all the rest of the things that have evolved to help people who need the help the most?
Would it mean institution and empowering of a radical new kind of Supreme Court that could potentially virtually or actually replace the Congress as the main governing authority?
If the Right takes the reins of government again in November should we all prepare ourselves for new and bigger and longer and more expensive (and possibly even dangerous) wars in some of the developing global hotspots?
Is Military Service going to actually become the primary job generator for America’s future?
There are, of course (In my opinion) plenty of nightmares that we could dredge up to worry about if the ideologies of the far right political devotees prevail in November.
But I found a really interesting article on “Alter Net” that talks about all this in what I consider to be really interesting detail.
Needless to say I am playing it safe!
I voted for Obama and The Democrats.
