Election results may signal end of freedom

It's a sad day in America when a candidate who plays the role of Robin Hood wins the presidency. It's a sad day when the incumbent president is able to bribe enough deadbeats with increased food stamps and welfare payments, free cell phones, extended unemployment benefits, etc., in exchange for the presidency. Combine that with the 47 percent who do not pay income tax and a pandering media ... victory is almost inevitable in our current social climate.
Obama is now talking about a "fiscal cliff," for which he is largely responsible with his give-away programs to buy the election. He, along with the mainstream media, will now portray the Republicans as obstructionists if they fail to go along with large tax increases to pay for more give-away programs. After all, his voter base will expect more of the same. They don't know or don't care where the funds come from or how it affects the economic status of this country. They just expect Obama to deliver. The demographic trends favor a continued growth of this socialist movement.
We may have seen our last chance to retain the freedoms our forefathers and our military personnel have fought and died for.
