Well it looks like Americans now favor entitlements over hard work. A shift to the left now takes us firmly to the path of Venezuela and Cuba. The American Dream is now "The American Memory" with more and more people depending on the govt to fix their problems and allowing freedoms to be lost. Obama won yes, but America and the next 3 generations will pay the price for the bad decisions of millions of Americans that crashed the housing market. Its a sad day in America for those of us that still believe in fiscal responsibility and owning up to your mistakes.
The wealthy will take their money out of the stock market as evident now with the market crashing, 260 point loss today so far. Higher taxes are a sure thing for us now and any business will do what it can to avoid losses. Jobs will be cut, benefits will be lost, and poverty will grow. How do we sustain these cost ? How could America have gotten it wrong again?
