Am I the only one who is terrified of waking up in November and having to face a few years of policy in this country run by 1% Mitt, McConnell, Boehner, Cantor, and Paul Ryan?
And I think this scenario has a close to 50% chance of happening, because Romney's going to be in the driver's seat after winning AZ and MI and riding through Super Tuesday.
I don't think enough attention has been placed on the fact that if Romney gets elected president, let's say with 50% of the vote, his coattails will mean that the House will definitely stay GOP controlled, and the Senate, where we are on defense this cycle, can easily flip to GOP control. And then we are facing a government run by these people. And that is terrifying.
There are too many people freaked out over Santorum and breathing a sigh of relief that he is on his way down as the last of the Not-Romneys. Santorum meant a blow out win for Obama, keeping the Dems in charge of the Senate, and maybe turning the House.
Think about what Mitt, Mitch, John, Eric, and Paul will mean:
The end of Medicare as we know it
The end of Social Security as we know it
Massive tax breaks to the top 1%, at the cost of critical discretionary programs.
The abandonment of smart policies for economic growth.
Recklessly moving towards war with Iran.
Disinvestment in education.
A widening in the gap between the haves and have-nots.
End of any regulation on Wall Street and the financial institutions.
What can we do now to damage Romney and the GOP brand now that Santorum is on his way to flaming out? Help prop up Newt? I'm at a loss.
