Pick of the day: America lost the election
Our country may not survive four more years
Rather than believe that the slim election majority represents any such mandate as claimed by Maxine Fraade (“Lost in a state of denial,” Nov. 13 Pick of the day), hear now the other 49 percent.
Thinking that America still believed in “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,” Republicans proposed sacrifice, fiscal moderation and personal responsibility.
Instead, many voted for self-interest rather than for country. Some voted:
To keep the free stuff coming.
To keep borders porous, and free stuff coming to illegal aliens.
To keep contraception in health plans.
To keep convenient abortion-on-demand protected.
For continuation of union controls over a diminishing workplace.
To tax others more while paying no federal income tax themselves.
To defeat capitalism and corporate America.
For a utopian environmental dream without offering feasible alternatives.
For gay rights.
For secularism and atheism over Judeo-Christian values.
Not enough Americans realized the real issue was the fiscal and moral future of our country.
