Honesty Curve Downward

OK, so health care costs are going up because of Obamacare, and more adults are uninsured since it began - mostly because of Obamanomics (that's another story) - but at least Mr. Obama promised it would reduce the deficit, right? Well, that was then, and this is now. Administration officials are quietly abandoning the so-called CLASS Act portion of Obamacare, supposedly meant to provide long-term elderly care. In reality, this was the mother of all accounting gimmicks, which counted 10 years of tax revenues but just five years of expenditures to give a false sense of fiscal sanity. Democratic senator and Obamacare supporter Kent Conrad of North Dakota called this "a Ponzi scheme of the first order, the kind of thing Bernie Madoff would have been proud of." Absent the accounting gimmicks, the Congressional Budget Office now acknowledges that Obamacare actually increases the national deficit by $540 billion over the next 10 years.
As much as this article destroys the insane myths on which this extreme left wing surge to tyranny is based, it does not begin to explain the ability of lies and liars to destroy our nation. Because of a complete acceptance of lies about his position on illegal immigration, Rick Perry's campaign for President has collapsed. It is looking highly likely that Mitt Romney, the only Republican candidate who has embraced the idiocy on which TyrannyCare is based, will be the Republican candidate. (I will not call it ObamaCare or RomneyCare or PelosiCare or DemocratCare or whatever, because the reality is that it is much more deceitful than that. It is an acceptance of the delusion that you can get a free lunch if you wish really really hard! The entire Democrat Party has bought this insanity. A large part of the Republican Party is equally guilty.)
Has the American populace gone stark raving bonkers?
It is looking more and more likely that none of the insane surge to the left under the Democrats since 2006 will be dealt with no matter who wins the Presidency in 2012. Unless the American populace starts to accept that entitlements are poison pills that kill a nation, nothing will be done to fix the problems. Not a single thing indicates the American populace has stopped looking for a miracle worker. A magic savior that will make everything miraculously better but who will not change anything. The economy will soar, the deficits will plunge and they will still get entitlements, no even better - entitlements will increase. The rich will pay for it all.
America is finished. A nuclear holocaust is coming and we are cutting defense spending. Our nuclear submarine fleet is collapsing and will soon cease to be a deterrent. Delusions and wishful thinking are dominating public thought. Any politician who talks reality is condemned and driven from public life.
No nation can stand when reality has been abandoned. Not even America.
