What if?Submitted by bigsurjune on Wed, 12/05/2012 - 08:44
What happens *IF* Obama successfully raises taxes on the rich--which by default slows the deficit, leaves Colorado and Washington States alone, allows oil companies to "Drill, baby, drill!" and closes out Afghanistan before he leaves office? Would this put the Republican party in a coma for at least a few more presidential elections?
To me, the only thing the Republican party could do is to embrace Ron Paul's and Libertarian ideas of freedom if they want any chance to hold office again.
So many fools scream their heads off that Obama is a Socialist or a Commie, but I don't see it that way. I see this smooth character as a establishment hack, or moderate at best. I see him taking both the right and the left on a ride.
Anyway, I believe a successful Obama candidacy could only help us liberty lovers in the near future, not hurt us. The one thing Obama will NOT do, is stop the ever growing Police State, and that is the only path to success for future GOP candidates.
What do you think will happen?
