Come on Larry, we live in the greatest country in the world! Quit whining about a GOP loss that has been predicted from day one. An un- electable candidate who could not be himself because of so many behind the scene advisors!  A GOP platform reincarnated from the 50’s and little appeal to Americas populace today!  The ultra-conservative values will never win in the world we live in now. Thank goodness Mesa County is in the minority for electing leaders when support is given blindly to candidates like Jared Wright.  Talk about embarrassing?  Yet, the sky is not falling today. Hopefully the message has been delivered, COMPROMISE!

I can just hear Karl Rove over the last four years talking in back rooms with wealthy donors saying, “ We got you this tax break so you can keep it going by kicking some of it in now to support our agenda to make it all permanent!” It was a gambit to ride on the windfall money of wealthy elitists to capture government and take the nation to a plutocracy.
plu•toc•ra•cy/pluˈtɒkrəsi/  [ploo-tok-ruh-see] 
noun, plural plu•toc•ra•cies.
1. the rule or power of wealth or of the wealthy.
2. a government or state in which the wealthy class rules.
3. a class or group ruling, or exercising power or influence, by virtue of its wealth.

By instilling a constant barrage of lies, distortion, propaganda and plying on bigotry, fear, and prejudice, these political manipulators were trying cajole the American electorate into subjugating themselves entirely to big money interests. Yet these big money interests have no patriotic allegiance, the only driving interest they have is to maximize profit regardless of collateral damage.

When you look at the slate of sellouts that all this political money bought and the damages that have resulted to great numbers of the population from economic losses, to environment degradation, decaying infrastructure, education, and on and on, and the lack of cooperative response to help the President move to correct these 2008 peak problems; you should easily see, the American people (98%) have been the target of a program to take everything from them for a few (2%). The irony of this Rove plot is it would convince these people they were protecting themselves from created phantoms and would actually end up seduced to what they feared. The second irony was the person that would be the leader would have a ‘takeover and gut the assets’ background and history.

Whether by intelligence and/or good instinct in face of this blitz, the American voters turned this around and stopped it this time.

@Steve, Some things are not up for compromise! Among those are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!
