I don't see things turning back. 51% of Americans agree with the Democrat party and we're importing more people who think just like these Americans every day. How do you defeat Santa Claus in an election?

Heck in my radio market, a radio ad starting running featuring an elderly woman protesting proposed cuts in her Social Security payment. She's worked 46 years and earned her Social Security. She's all up in arms over the chained CPI. The ad doesn't mention Republicans but you know that's who gets the blame. The ad writers are taking advantage of most Americans' dismal understanding of financial math.

What gets me is the media's role in this. Why do they let them get away with it? They have to know what comes at the end of this. It's evil.
