What now America? Is it time to play the ‘R’ card?

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
All right, all right
Beatles 'Revolution'

If you’re an average American and you have a bad feeling about the way things are going, trust me, you are so not alone. We all thank God that at least food is still affordable. Question is…for how long?

Right at the moment in our nation’s history when a fragile and extremely bruised economy is struggling against a host of problems, both domestic and foreign, now it gets slammed with what may turn out to be the single largest tax hike in history! Some experts estimate as much as 700 billion on up to a trillion dollars will be lifted from taxpayer’s wallets over the next ten years just to pay for the infamous Affordable Health Care Act. That’s assuming the health care industry even survives. When added to out of control spending by the Congress and the Fed's attempt to print our way out of debt (three trillion funny money dollars so far and counting), the financial future of the average American worker is sorely in doubt. Ya think?

But, as I said, as long as we all can afford to eat, things should stay relatively stable. Everyone in Washington knows this and if they are going to keep the ‘party’ going, they will need to keep everything balanced just so…right up to the time the whole shebang goes on over the cliff. At that point, the dollar will become basically worthless and Americans will find themselves back in Medieval times economically. Three words will describe the average life then; hard, brutal and short.

Meanwhile the rich politicians will have long since departed to their island of choice, leaving the mess they’ve made for others to clean up. Gosh, how so Far Leftish is that?
