After The Elections: Where Is America Now? It’s Dead, That’s Where

Due to the re-election of Barack Hussein Obama, the United States is officially a failed experiment. In fact, his election in the first place in 2008 signaled the end.

Because so few of you people out there know anything about history any more, I’ll have to explain that opening line above. You see, the founders considered the United States an experiment in self-government. As Ben Franklin is said to have remarked upon leaving the first Constitutional Convention, the founders had given us a republic “if you can keep it.”

By that, Franklin meant that it would be up to our citizens to a). learn what the United States means, b). come to understand it’s philosophy and governing systems, and c). vote accordingly. We have now officially come to an era where only the tiniest handful of Americans have this understanding and the bulk of those voting are uninformed. Worse, they aren’t just uninformed, they are uninterested.

Oh, Barack Obama isn’t the cause of America’s failure. But he is the ultimate result. He is the result of a citizenry that knows nothing about its own country. He is the result of citizens that no longer care about their country and only care about themselves.

Barack Obama is the ultimate example of how anti-American the Democrat Party is today. The Democrats oppose nearly every single truly American principle that the founders gave us.

Democrats oppose the supremacy of the U.S. Constitution
Democrats oppose personal responsibility
Democrats oppose free speech
Democrats oppose the Second Amendment
Democrats oppose morality and religion
Democrats oppose the rule of law and wish instead to rule by fiat
Democrats oppose the sanctity of life
Democrats oppose education and instead support indoctrination
Democrats oppose business
Democrats oppose liberty and freedom and support totalitarianism
Democrats oppose sovereignty and support international rule
Democrats oppose our national security

In short, Democrats think the United States is a cancer on humanity and they wish to damage it permanently.

Now, I’ll not be one to hold up the Republican Party as some stalwart example of Americanism. In fact, the GOP is but a pale shadow of the Democrats. They spend nearly as much. They constantly cave to Democrats and never stand up for their principles. They similarly don’t care much about the Constitution and our American principles. The Republican Party gets us to the destruction of the country only at a slightly slower pace than the Democrats.

So, how do we fix this? How do we return America to the path of self-government and the path that made the USA the best nation in human history?

We dismantle our system of mis-education.

Our educational system, is why we are failing. We true Americans have allowed the anti-American left to fully take over education in America. They disgorge millions of good little socialists every single year. Constantly trying to re-educate these anti-American graduates after they’ve spent upward to 20 years being taught to hate America and everything it stands for is a forlorn task.

We need to get to kids before the left does. The only way to do this is depose the left from education.

We CANNOT win the hearts and minds of children (who later become voting adults) who have been brainwashed in anti-Americanism since their youngest years. We have to eliminate the brainwashing. We need to teach civics, history, philosophy, all the ideas of our founders. Until this happens true Americanism cannot win the day in our elections.

Until and unless this happens, the grand experiment we call the United States of America is over. It has failed.

One last thing. There can be no compromise with Democrats. They aren’t just wrong on a few things. They are wrong on everything. And they aren’t just wrong they are evil. They intend the destruction of the USA. They are almost finished with their task. Compromise with Democrats is a traitor’s act.

Andrew Breitbart was right. It must be war.

Thoughts on the election
  • Brucehenry

    What a kook.

    You should have taken at least 24-48 hours off after the calling of the election. You’re unhinged.

    My advice is to take a week. Get your thoughts together and write something a non-paranoid, non-nut could see some semblance of sense in.

    • DanKaripides

      Carl I asked in a previous thread that you not engage in personal attacks.

      If you notice, most of the people commenting here that you would typically call ‘right wing nut jobs’ don’t agree with Warner. I don’t either. But you’ll notice that none of them have started with name calling or are responding with posts completely devoid of merit.

      I’m asking again. Views counter to the posters here are welcome–theoretically they can lead to interesting discussions. But taunting, name calling, and general trolling aren’t helping anyone. Don’t you have anything better to do?

      I’m going to delete your other post below because it is equally pointless.

      If you feel that you are of superior intellect and have the most logical and sound point of view, then show us with actual content please.

      • zuch

        How do you respond to someone who asserts that “everything” Democrats do or say is wrong?

        The proper response to such nonsense is derision, pure and simple. However, there is something to be said for silence: Why stop you or clue you in while you’re busy digging holes?…

  • My view of USA and Americans is they care and understand only their own self interests and ignore the rest of the world. They do things such as sending troops and giving aids only if they benefited from them. I plead to Mr Barrack Obama and the USA citizens please be more compassionate and truly understand the rest of the world. The world is not only USA.

  • JWH

    Warner, dude, call your doctor. Ask him for the little happy pills. Or move to one of the states that just moved to legalize the happy weed. Or maybe you could move to California and spontaneously develop glaucoma.

    Look, the Republic’s not dead. The experiment’s not failed. All that’s happened is that some people who disagree with you just got elected, and got elected by a slim majority at that.

    Instead of repeating your usual mantra (“Democrats bad!! Democrats bad!! Democrats bad!! Polly wanna cracker!! Democrats bad!!”), chill out for a few minutes, take a few deep breaths, and ponder how your side of the aisle might win back the good graces of some of the Americans in the center.

    Or you could just take the happy pills. Doesn’t matter either way to me.

  • arcman46

    I live in Utah, and we just had an election where we had a strong constitutional conservative candidate, Mia Love, get beat by a “moderate” Democrat. I don’t know how many commercials I saw of “Republicans” who were going to vote for Matheson. Their story: “I vote for the person, not the party”. Well sorry folks, you might like the Congressman; you might think he does a good job and represents you well; but a vote for ANY Democrat is a vote for the agenda of Pelosi, Reid, and Obama.

    With this election, I have to reevaluate my relationship with the Republicans, but they are still our best chance, until another Party comes along that will push to return us to our constitutional roots.

    • Commander_Chico

      Mia Love would appear to be an attractive candidate. Well educated, an impressive resume, a mayor, a Mormon convert.

      For some reason they didn’t vote for her in conservative Utah. I wonder why?

      • arcman46

        She lost by something like 1200 votes. She carried every county but Salt Lake County. Salt Lake City is a bit more liberal, if you can use that term than the rest of the state.

      The United States has denied it sought to delay negotiations for political reasons, saying it had genuine problems with the draft as written.

      the problems were that it didn’t sell out American’s rights completely enough. Time to go make another purchase and support the one industry that has grown under obama.

  • Man, I’ll give you my two cents on this, for what it’s worth.

    It’s very easy to get caught up in politics, and forget there’s a wide world of other stuff out there. Yes, political decisions affect our daily lives, for better or worse. But the effect is actually less than you might think.

    Your friends will still be there. Water will still be wet. The sun will still rise, birds will still migrate and shit on your windshield, McDonalds will still serve unhealthy food, oatmeal will still taste just as … oatmealish…

    You’re frustrated, and angry. You’re looking at the system, and thinking about ways to smash it, thinking that’s the only way. Force against force.

    But it’s not. Don’t think karate and Taekwondo – think Aikido instead. You’re not going in to beat them with a flurry of political blows – you’re going to need to let them beat themselves with their own momentum.

    If you’re worried about the future, I’d recommend you listen to Bill Whittle’s latest entry. He might not be your cup of tea, and he’s decidedly something of a dreamer… but, think Aikido. Not karate.

    He’s long-winded, and doesn’t get to the good stuff for a while, but I hope you enjoy the diversion.

  • The proliferation of private K-12 schools is evidence of conservatives fleeing the public education system. I’m not convinced that this won’t ultimately be ruinous to our national unity, but I do see it happening. Kids growing up in the same towns, but in utterly separate psychic and social universes.

    • Pendulums swing. Some are a lot longer than others and thus swing slower. So it goes with educational trends. And let’s be honest – if education is a priority for the parents, they’ll find some way to get their kids a good education, whether it’s by shoving them at a city school, a private school, or homeschooling. Kahn Academy is turning out to be a real help with that, at all levels. The internet’s going to be really modifiying the way we teach – but it’s not going to be a sudden change.

      Will some take the default, least cost and effort way? Of course. There’s always been those, just like there’s always been plenty who’ll spare pretty much no effort or expense. And their psychic and social universes aren’t going to intersect much, if at all.

      There’s also a burgening movement to de-emphazise a college diploma, at least in areas which aren’t rigorous and technical. Especially with the cost of college loans anymore – the thinking is that spending $60k-$100k for a degree in aeronautical engineering is worthwhile, while spending the same for a degree in Medieval European Poetry is simply overeducating a barrista.
      We’ll see what we see. In the mean time, teach the kids to be responsible and sensible, and they won’t be going far wrong as far as their lives go.

      • JWH

        There is value in a degree in Medieval European Poetry, especially if you’re just interested in medieval European poetry. But it’s a degree best suited for somebody who’s a pure academic or who finds great joy in researching poetic history. That’s not a bad thing. Today’s American colleges and universities aren’t colleges and universities in the classical sense. They’re more like high-end vocational schools. Today’s universities are expected to prepare students for a career, not for a journey of lifelong learning.

        • Nope, it’s not a bad thing.

          Unless you take out so much debt to do so that you end up with an amount that can never be paid back.

          Lifelong learning isn’t restricted to a college environment. With the internet, as I said, resources are available to everyone that would have been unimaginable a decade back, and you can follow a reference very, very quickly to the source document.

          (Occasionally it takes a bit of work – I’m currently reading “Ignition” by J. Clark – An informal history of liquid rocket propellants. You might not think it a page turner, but the man writes very well and gives a lot of history of the early rocketry programs of the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s. On monopropellants (a mix of fuel and oxidizer)…

          One subject that was investigated for years was detonation velocity, the critical diameter for detonation, and the construction of detonation traps. If you have a monopropellant blow in your motor, that’s one thing. But if that detonation propagates back (at some 7000 meters per second, usually) through the propellant line to the propellant tank, and that blows, then you can be in real trouble. If the diameter of the propellant line is small enough, the detonation will not propagate and dies out — the limiting diameter being called the “critical diameter.” It varies with the nature of the propellant, the material of which the line is made (steel, aluminum, glass, etc.) with the temperature, and maybe with a few more things. (When we found that a detonation in Isolde (their name for a monopropellant with a jaw-cracking name – J.) would propagate nicely through hypodermic-needle tubing, our hair stood on end, and we perspired gently.)

          … Mike Walsh, of our group, devised a trap that worked beautifully with Cavea B, as well as with several other monopropellants. Cavea B would not propagate a detonation through a 0.25-inch line, but would through a one-inch line. So Mike inserted a one-foot long piece of two-inch piping into his one-inch line, and filled this section with a cylindrical bar of a plastic that would resist the propellant for a reasonable time. (Polystyrene was good.) And he drilled sixteen 0.25-inch holes longitudinally through this cylindrical plug, so that he had the same area for flow as he had in the one-inch main line. And when he checked it out, the detonation rolled down to the trap, blew up about the first third of that, and stopped cold.

          The descriptions of how they made and tested the fuels makes you cringe inside, even if you don’t know much about chemistry. A rather messy PDF of it is available for free, or you can get a printed copy for well over $100 on Amazon.

          Then there’s “Caging the Dragon”, about how they worked to contain underground nuclear explosions out at the Nevada Test Site. THAT was interesting.

          The point being that if you WANT to learn esoteric stuff, you can easily find the resources on-line to do so, and you won’t need to go to college and search through dusty stacks to find obscure tomes… unless you want to. Add in various colleges putting free courses on-line, and the incentive to pay massive amounts for an education boils down to, as you said, basically getting a vo-tech certification.

          • JWH

            I’ve found that there’s something to be said for interacting with other students and with a teacher. Both add something to the process. Yeah, I know that’s possible with telelearning, but still …

          • JWH

            Actually, JLaw, I’m of a couple opinions about higher education. Part of me thinks that instead of charging students insane tuition and so forth, it’d be better to switch things over to a massive tax increase.

            I know that seems just as bad as the current situation with spiraling debt, but hear me out.

            State government guarantees you a taxpayer-funded education through twelfth grade. The idea is that this is the minimum education required to make you actually useful as an adult and able to earn a living.

            Thing is, that’s not really true anymore. A lot of jobs — and I mean a lot of jobs, including a lot of traditional blue-collar — now require college degrees or at least advanced vocational education beyond what high school provides. And many people without a college education find that when they try to move beyond jobs that are minimally paying, potential employers slam the door in their face because they have no college degree.

            I submit that the current situation is completely messed up. The labor market effectively demands that individuals go into five-figure debt (or requires their parents to shell out five figures worth of money) as the price of admission. Then, a number of occupations demand that price of entry, then do not pay entry-level wages that allow a person to simultaneously pay down educational debt incurred and maintain a reasonable lifestyle. (“Reasonable” meaning rent a one-bedroom apartment and pay for food and clothing).

            if the guarantee of a taxpayer funded education means anything, than that education should include, in my opinion, at least two years of college.

          • “f the guarantee of a taxpayer funded education means anything, than that education should include, in my opinion, at least two years of college.”

            To be honest, I think that’s a bad idea.

            Why? Because past a certain point (and I’m open to the idea that it’s not where I think it might be) you’re not going to get your money’s worth. This is based on conversations with teachers I’m friends with, and my own observations while doing classroom computer maintenance for a couple of years.

            There’s already a good number of teenagers who don’t see school as an educational opportunity – they see it as a social club. It’s basically paid babysitting, until they either get too troublesome in the classroom, or they drop out.

            Give them two more years of school, and that’s two more years to chatter over the teacher, disrupt class, delay getting into the real world, and finding out that they’ve been studiously ignoring the folks trying to teach the information that would help them out down the line… like reading, writing, and basic math, much less history, science, and Medieval European Poetry.

            Talk about an extended adolescence… You’re looking at a nominal 20-year old just getting into the work force.

            I don’t know what the answer is. Perhaps a splitting, as the Germans do, into a vo-tech track and an academic track would be a good idea. Instilling the idea that what you KNOW is vitally important, too – seems to me there’s too much emphasis in high school on sports… which drain off a lot of the budget. But there’s folks who argue that both academics and sports are important.

            I do agree that what we’ve got isn’t working well. In the case of my son (14) he’s kind of bored with school. He was in a private school, and though he got fairly good grades there (better than I ever got in public school by a good margin) now he’s in high school he’s getting straight A’s and isn’t really challenged.

            When asked what he wants to do – he’s thinking… long-haul truck driver. Or maybe baker. (Facepalm…)

            Well, he’s 14…

          • JWH

            I don’t know that there’s a good answer, either. My instinct to guarantee two years of college (paid for with increased taxes) is based on the idea that if the world virtually requires a person to spend five figures just to start working, it’s better to take it as taxes over a person’s lifetime than to do it as a 20-year loan with subsidized interest and payments that eat up a large chunk of the person’s starting salary.

            One other possibility: As I understand it, state-school tuition, even in-state, has risen drastically over the past decade or so as state governments cut back on funding. Maybe it’s time to restore some of that fundage? If a state school is there so that state citizens can get an affordable education, then they’re failing miserably at that job if tuition is comparable to a private school. (And, yeah, I know administrative bloat is an issue, too.)

            Our parents’ model of education — going to school while working part-time, or going to school part-time while working full-time — doesn’t work well anymore. The cheapest four-year university in my state is $8,590 per year in tuition and mandatory fees, assuming you live off campus and bring your own lunch. That’s going to be hard to swing on a job that pays $10 an hour or less.

            I’m kind of looking for solutions.

            Other ideas:

            Make government-funded grants available, but only to those professions that have a demonstrated need. Some states do this already for teachers or whatnot. I’d expand it. The idea is to put a thumb on the ol’ free-market scale, as 19-year-olds aren’t exactly the most rational consumers out there.

            Make future student loans dischargeable in bankruptcy and rewrite privacy laws so that student lenders have access to borrowers’ grades. This gives lenders the incentive to price their loans to take risk of nonpayment into account and it gives them a way to find out which students might not perform well in the workplace after graduation. Yes, grades can be a lousy measure of workplace performance, but they’re the only ones available.

            A number of companies currently offer scholarships for students who want to study in their fields, etc. Why not give these companies greater incentives and encourage them to build one-to-one relationships with students? If you want to hire a top-flight computer programmer, then find a potential programmer graduating high school, and fund his college degree for four years.

            I have no clue whether these ideas would work. But I’d like to see something done about the student-loan issue because the current system, well, sucks.

          • Good ideas. I like the idea of companies offering scholarships or incentives to students… but there has to be something for the company in return. Yes, you might be getting a good programmer – but unless you build in a penalty for jumping ship before the company has recouped its investment, there’s no way to keep your programmer if someone offers him $1 an hour more and all the free caffeine they can suck down, plus an Aeron chair.

            Well, time will tell.

          • JWH

            I don’t believe gov’t should mandate something in return. A kid going into college is naive, but he’s 18 years old and at least theoretically an adult, and therefore able to enter into a contract in his own name. I would put some outer limits on what can be in that kind of contract; generally, such limits should fall in line with existing law regarding contracts (unconscionability, duress, mistake, impossibility of performance and so forth. Don’t ask me “who decides,” as we have roughly five centuries of law regarding contracts. We can figure somethign out). The student could agree to work for a certain period of time for the company in exchange for payment for his education. Or something like that. I would more or less leave it as a private matter between the student and the company.

          • Indentured servitude. We used to have it… And that’s probably what it’d be called if some contract like that were proposed…

            Gotta run – chat at ya later…

          • By the way, you might find this interesting…


            Give kids a problem, but DON’T give them the answer – and let them figure it out for themselves…

          • JWH

            There are limits to that kind of instructional mode, and it’s one of the reasons I did poorly in my abortive attempt at a computer-science minor in undergrad. The instructors would give us assignments like “write a program that will implement a stack” or a queue or some other data type. I did indeed want to solve problems and so forth. But I felt like instead of giving me the tools and telling me to solve problems, they were making me labor over how to build a wrench.

          • You’ve got to build the tools to build the tools… and understanding how a wrench works (and arguably more important, how it does not…) is important too.

            You won’t find everyone good at everything. Some folks have a knack for things, others look at them and go “Nope, don’t see it.” I’ve tried doing a bit of programming – I can write a fair DOS-based batch file, but beyond that I’m lost. I had a roommate who used to write compilers for fun… but was lost in the real world. He couldn’t help me – I simply didn’t have the knack.

      Both my kids went through the public school system. Both are solid conservatives having been raised in a home where conservatism was taught.

      When my daughter was a senior and took government, she was the only one who spoke up in class and usually it was to challenge the teacher and his liberal views. Four years later, they still keep in touch and he has said that she was the most well informed student he ever had.

      Parents who care will take the time to know what their children are being taught and give them balance in world views. It can be done, but only by those willing to pay attention to their children’s education rather than American Idol and the Voice.

    can find no evidence that cutting taxes on rich people grows the

      Wow. The writer of this article isn’t exactly a high-wattage bulb, but you’re a wet match. Democrats are not evil. Call them uneducated, delusional, stupid, etc., but certainly not evil.

      You, on the other hand, are a danger to yourself and everyone around you. You are evil. The fact that you want the GOP, quite simply, destroyed just shows that you are a daft, selfish, authoritarian leftist who’s heart is just bursting with so much of that “liberal tolerance and love for your fellow man” that you’re nothing but a hateful, bigoted moron with no greater a grasp on the strings of reality than the lowest forms of life have on their own mortality.

      You truly are the typical liberal. You care nothing for anyone unless they totally see eye to eye with you. You have no qualms about hurting other people who disagree with your jaded philosophies and ideologies. You see fairness in being allowed to berate and condemn people who don’t agree with you, as long they aren’t talking back, in which case it would be all over CNN and MSNBC that a Conservative “said a bad word”. You’re willing to enjoy freedom, but not earn it. You’re willing to take other people’s money for your own benefit and claim that those who don’t contribute a “fair share” to feed and cloth you are the real selfish ones. For most of you, it’s not enough that you live in a country where it is your own choice whether or not you practice a religion, because some of you make a living out of trying to bring the people who do down with you. Some of you are so “open-minded” and “intellectual” that you’re incapable of accepting the fact that the most logical way of protecting yourself from a bad guy with a gun is to have one, yourself. The hate and self-righteousness in you is disgusting as you curl your nose up at people who you don’t deem worthy of speaking to. You all have dark souls. Everything about you is fucking ugly. You are evil.
      Oddly enough, I still don’t hate you. Afterall, I gave up four years of my life to serve my country, and everyone in it, and to do my part. Oddly enough, myself and everyone else who has done the same, has it thrown in their faces. I still don’t hate you guys, though. Not, at all. I will be fair, however, and say that I will make sure to never serve in your best interest, again. My fellow “bigoted, hateful, fascist” conservative friends will have my back, and I theirs, since you have all made it clear that you don’t need Patriots to defend you, anymore.
      What do you think, all you right-wing nutjobs? How do you think abunch of candy-ass, gun-grabbers who have already layed their freedom at the feet of the coward-in-chief are going to fair without us, when the time comes?

    Delusional rant…but funny! Thanks for the schadenfreude…it’s delicious with my morning coffee.

  • Holy Crow, You seriously need to be put in a Mental Asylum. There is something wrong with you.

    My main and really only concern is a majority of the electorate voted in their own self interest not what is best for the future of the country. We will survive, but look at Greece where they are trying to cut entitlements but the citizens again just went on strike. I don’t know if we are on the precipice but we are close, very close. ww

    The Democrats own the next 4 years. No more blaming Bush or the sun was in their eyes or they didn’t see the homework assignment. They wanted re-election to what? Sit in the oval office? No, to fix it. So fix it. It’s theirs. You fumble, it’s on you.

      Good for you. Lead, follow, or get out of the way. Sounds like you’ve made your choice.

  • LavaLump

    Many on here see this as unhinged.. But they apparently never went to RS to take a look at the truly unhinged.. i.e. “About Tuesday’s Loss: If The Archangel Michael Were On The Ballot, Beelzebub Would Still Have Won”… and the comments in that article alone are enough to make Mr Houstons article seem like an endoresment of the President.

  • Just another unhappy, unhinged Republican. Poor guy needs his Pepto Bismol!!

    • Joe

      Just another leech on society. Poor guy needs his welfare check! Or does he work for a union?… Eh, same shit.

  • Wanderer

    This has to be snark, right??? Author writes an article titled “…America…It’s Is Dead,” projecting blame on to the educational system? My advice to Mr. Huston–education, as in life, is all about getting out what you put into it.

  • shuley

    What do I think of your rant? It’s is Ironic..

  • Lillian Kaufer

    This essay is a perfect example of why the GOP lost the election so overwhelmingly. But by all means, keep going down your path.

  • ozcar

    Oddly enough, none of the Democrats commenting here seem to have ANY argument(s) to the “Democrats oppose…” list; just throwing out ad hominems. Gotta wonder why that is.

    • TomInCali

      It’s called “not taking him seriously”.

      I hereby claim that you, Ozcar, also oppose everything on his list. So we will now expect you to provide your arguments against my declaration. And if you do not, then we will snarkily wonder why that is.

      • ozcar

        Apologies for taking so long to answer you: life, work (gotta buy your food stamps), etc. take precedence.

        Is America Dead? Maybe not, but if the “bread and circuses” crowd don’t wake up, it will no longer be an America we recognize. I’m not holding my breath.

        I oppose nothing on the list, I might even add a couple items the Democrats oppose, but let’s not go there now. You’ve indicated you don’t “…tak[e] him seriously.”; why not? Please, tell me how the Democrats support even one of the items on that list. Again, not holding my breath.

  • Lavaux

    We can’t educate Democrats. Only extreme suffering will educate them, and they seem inclined to impose extreme suffering on us all. What will we learn from this? Well, I hope we learn to truly limit government because no state or federal constitution has done the job. The American Revolution is dead. Let the new revolution begin.
