BENJAMIN FRANKLIN'S WARNING
 
thatas soon as people learn they can vote themselvesmoney from the treasury, it will signal the end of our republic.This warning resonates again and again as wewatch our freedoms dissipate under the currentadministration and its ruthless treatment of ourethical framework, and our laws. People oftenwonder, sometime piously, how it is that tyrannyoccurs.We like to think the populations victimized weresomehow less savvy, more gullible, or asleep atthe wheel. We think ourselves better somehow,and that it could never happen here. Everygeneration that has fallen to tyranny has believedthe same comforting fable. They only learn thatthey, too, were susceptible to tyranny when it istoo late.

John Galt Calling -
Had Enough? 
 
by Doug Patton
 
"They believe in free stuff. We believe in free people." - U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, 2012 vicepresidential nomineeWhen I heard Congressman Ryan utter those words during his speech to the Republican NationalConvention in Tampa last summer, I thought they would define the 2012 race for the White House. Nostatement so clearly describes the deep division between the earners and the takers in this country as westand on the uneasy precipice of another Obama term. As we all try to analyze the election results, itappears that "free stuff" won big.More than half a century ago, author Ayn Rand
 —
one of Paul Ryan's social and political inspirations

 saw the dangers of socialism in America. In her 1,100-page opus, "Alas Shrugged," she prescientlypredicted the direction of the country and the consequences inherent in that course. The book tells thestory of how her protagonist, John Galt, has had enough of the leaches who will not work and thebureaucrats who cater to them. Galt recruits the brightest, most productive members of society to go onstrike in order to deprive the nation's parasites of the support they need to continue redistributing wealththey did not earn.Now that Obama has won a second four-year term to continue his leftist agenda, one has to wonder justhow many of the people who actually pay the bills in this country intend to "go John Galt." I personallyknow a few. A doctor in Nebraska has been telling his patients that he intends to close his practice and leave thecountry if Obama is re-elected. Obamacare, he says, will destroy his practice, and he has no intentions of working for the government. It appears that he has not been uttering idle threats. He has purchasedproperty in another country and he really plans to leave. An executive for a major Midwestern corporation, which recently merged with a similar firm in a larger city,has been contemplating relocation in order to continue working for the company that has employed her formore than three decades. Obama's re-election has finalized her decision."I'm done," she says at the peak of her career. "There's no way I'm going back to this level of work andstress and taxation. I'm going Galt. Elections have consequences. I'm over it. You'd be surprised howcheaply I can live. They can tax somebody else."The owner of a Japanese restaurant tells one of his employees, who supported Obama, "If he wins, youwill lose your job." It is not a threat. He simply knows what is coming.The owner of a picture framing gallery, who has struggled to keep her business afloat for the past threeyears, will close her doors by the end of this year. The final, deciding factor for her was the result of thispresidential election. "No one even has the money to pick up the work I've already framed for them," shelaments, "and it's only going to get worse. I'm not working this hard for nothing."

 A salesman approaching his 65th birthday, who planned to wait until age 66 to file for Social Security, iscontemplating filing early. "My intention was to wait another year so that I wouldn't be penalized forworking and earning more than the allowed amount of $14,400 per year," he says. "But with rising gasprices, regulations and taxes under Obama, I might as well do the minimum and live off the governmentdole like half the country already is."Barack Obama has already done great damage to this country. He will do much more damage over thenext four years. Whether America's producers will continue to stand for it remains to be seen.In his gracious concession speech on election night, Mitt Romney appealed to business owners andentrepreneurs. "We look to job-creators of all kinds," he said. "We're counting on you to invest, to hire, tostep forward..."Perhaps they will, but if they do, it will be in spite of Barack Obama, certainly not because of him.

Seeking answers to why their presidential candidate lost the election, the first round of consensus on theright has focused on the Republican need to recalibrate its message to connect with the nation's shiftingvoting demographics
 —
or, at the very least, acknowledge that the country is changing.I must say "DUH!!" The GOP gave away the 2008 election and now the 2012 with the same comedy of errors. NO DEFINITION OF PARTY. The aisle-crossing McCain actually made some of the base simply stayhome. This year's pseudo-conservative Romney lost the conservative base before he started. A social media post said the changingdemographics means trouble for the GOP.Problems for a political party? The breakout of "African-American," "Latino-American," and "Asian- American" voters who selected Obama meansproblems for the country!People cast votes because of race, or because theywant something from an unprincipledcandidate!??! The 18-29 vote is important to acampaign, but the mindset of young people is bestdescribed by Churchill -- (paraphrased) if you areolder and not conservative, you are stupid! I donot get the male vs female vote, unless there is an educational divide. Perhaps there is a preponderance of single-Moms out there looking for a 2nd alimony check from Uncle Sam.The trouble for the nation is that this election was not won on the economy or foreign policy or integrityregarding the military. This election spells the death knell of a Republic. One pundit wrote: "I think allthose Obama constituents should leave America and form their own country. Libya might be a good place. A nice Muslim location with no constitution to ignore."
