I keep seeing Democratic talking heads regurgitating their talking points about Republicans and conservatives wanting to return to what they call the “failed policies of the past”.
No, I don’t want to return to the “failed policies of the past”. But I urgently want to move away from the failed polices of the present, which are destroying this country.
In the real world, the Democrats will continue to cling to their failed polices; they have too much energy and time invested in them, and they are not willing to admit what is plain to see for most of us – simply, that they don’t work.
In the meantime, the conservatives, tea party, and Republicans are beginning to understand that they must adopt the new polices that will be required if this country is going to survive. Major reform is going to be required, including a drastic cutting back of big government. The fact is, we cannot afford big government any longer – and many people are beginning to realize that.
It’s ironic that in 2013, Obama and his policies will be the new “failed policies of the past”. Because fail they have, in a big way.
