Election 2012- Children Voted to Raise Their Own Allowance

A simple take away from Election 2012 is the children (electorate), given an opportunity to raise their own allowance, did just that.  The choice was between one “parent” offering a sobering, straightforward view of life, and the other providing no strings attached goodies.  Governor Romney championed personal responsibility and self-sufficiency.  President Obama campaigned on government give aways.

A lousy economy characterized by shrinking household incomes, miniscule economic growth, and a dramatically contracting workforce was trumped by two years of uninterrupted unemployment checks, food stamps, free contraception, and ObamaPhones.  In a tipping point election many voters picked the guy and party they figured were most likely to keep them comfy.

Republicans, running as no nonsense adults, suffered a distinct disadvantage.  Who wants to hear Dad yammering about a free ride that can’t last, when Mom keeps junior on the gravy train?  The“old man” sounds “old fashioned”.  What does he know?  He can’t be right about all that doom and gloom cause things are OK.

The GOP will be hard pressed to overcome that mindset so long as folks are content living in some dreary, government “utopia”.  Citizens will only begin to reconsider the serious Republican message when they start to feel uneasy about their circumstances.

They will start to feel uneasy about their circumstances when it appears their benefits are threatened.  Benefits will be threatened when there is not enough taxpayer money being redistributed into the government programs supporting them. Tick tock.

    Flood online recipe sites with recipes based on roasted liberal kids. Zombify them all. Get them nervous.

    So you could say Romney’s statement about “Gifts” was actually correct.

    While standing in line at the grocery store I watched a woman tell her kid that she did’nt have enough money to buy candy. The brat replied, “just write a check.”
