My head is spinning with everything going on in the news these days. I wish I could stop time and have a chance to catch my breath and regroup. I've had to go from barely having enough interest in politics to be able to vote each year to trying to immerse myself in as many news/political websites and blogs as I can to try to get some sort of understanding of what is happening.
And I worry about how our country is going to survive this move into Socialism. Even if the health care bill is repealed, what will we do about all the crazies? I mean, I'm sorry, but most liberals seem foam-at-the-mouth crazy. You can't reason with them at all, they tune you out and start screaming "RAAAACIST!" at you. I don't have to look any further than my own sister for proof of this.
A few months ago she caught me on Yahoo messenger and told me, with the utmost delight, about how she was antagonizing the 70-something mother of one of her friends. She justified it by saying her friend told her that his mother was a bigot. I could almost see the nasty gleam in my sister's eyes as she told me how she liked to go on the woman's Facebook page and leave comments about how great Obama is as a president and how great the economy is doing, etc., etc. Not sure what she was basing that last bit on, either, because the economy has been in the tank for over a year.
The only glimmer of hope, at least in my eyes, is the Fair Tax. If we can get the Republicans back in the majority, and we can convince them that we want the Fair Tax, we might be able to save our country from destruction.
