Given that Mitt Romney has won the election it is only the most pragmatic view that we reaccessed progressive policies!
We know that tax cuts for the rich create prosperity for all! Finally that zombie lie that they increase the deficit and have no real impaction except to be a drag on the economy can die!
We can finally acknowledge that that those deep thinkers at the Washington Times were right when they called Social Security a Ponzi scheme.
We can move past partisan divides and understand that Alan Simpson was right when he said Social Security Is Like a "Milk Cow with 310 Million Tits!" Those greedy seniors! We have to accept that we were wrong to think that people deserve those earned lifetime benefits they worked for. President Obama is right. He understands that Social Security contributes to the deficit and people should be forced between a healthy diet and fast food.
Finally we can say that both the war in Afghanistan & Iraq were worth fighting and that we found WMD's thanks to the visionary leadership of Donald Rumsfeld. We have to accept that because those people are brown - and they live someplace over there - that all they are is collateral damages. We have to accept that drones are the future and that war is hell.
We also must accept finally that public schools have failed. They were wrong from the start and wrong now. Only private charter schools can successfully teacher our future generations how to cope with all the equality they will experience in the job markets. Public workers are not the answer and it is high time we realized that. For-profit schools are the future & we have to ensure that only the lucky few in our society - the job creators children have the opportunity to succeed.
We were wrong to think that Americans should have a living wage and that employers should offer health insurance at a reasonable price to its workers! It is time to give up on single payer. It is a pipe dream. Even when we controlled both chambers of congress and had a congressman with guts willing to introduce the legislation we had speaker Nancy saying No! No! No! We have to accept that Medicare and Medicaid are programs for the moocher class! Not for hard working real American(TM) tax payers!
Time and time again we have victimized Walmart and the Walden family. They only have more wealth then the bottom 40% of the US population or about 100 million families. We were wrong to ask these people to pay more and this election proves it! Income inequality is not the problem in the United States!
It is our historically high tax rate that has effectively killed businesses. Thank goodness Romney won. We all know that President Obama has raised taxes countless times and as progressives we have to accept that we are just paying too much in taxes.
Everything we have tried has failed. Elections have consequences. Republicans have won and we have to rethink and accept that progressives lost.
This chained CPI to social security is not a cut - it is a bonus - and the sooner we get behind the president on this - the sooner he can tackle climate change by lifting caps on carbon - the sooner he can raise the medicare eligibility age to 70 - the sooner we can expand Guantanamo bay - the sooner we can all get along.
Mitt Romney won the election. I'm just being pragmatic.
