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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
