The American left is the most self-indulgent, arrogant, and spoiled group of people on the face of the earth. They live in a nation facing national bankruptcy and societal upheaval -- a country presently subsisting on the residue of past economic achievements. Yet the only things that matter to them are their lifestyles and imposing their self-determined superiority on rest of the American people.
The true indebtedness of the United States now exceeds $222 trillion. Appearing on National Public Radio in August of 2011 Professor Laurence J. Kotlikoff of Boston University said:
If you add up all the promises that have been made for spending obligations, and subtract all the taxes we expect to collect, the difference is $211 Trillion. This is the fiscal gap. That is our true indebtedness.
Since that interview, the indebtedness has increased by another $11 trillion. Yet these estimates do not include the full impact of ObamaCare, which could add another $17+ trillion. On the other side of the ledger: the annual Gross Domestic Product (the value of all economic activity in the U.S.) is $15.6 trillion. The indebtedness to GDP ratio is a staggering 14.2 to 1 and guaranteed to further accelerate if Barack Obama is re-elected.
The United States is not facing bankruptcy, it is bankrupt. Thus, to them, what the policies of Barack Obama and his radical minions are doing to the long-term fate of nation is immaterial as long as Obama regurgitates his support for the various causes that are near and dear to the coalition that makes up the left. There are two common threads to the belief system of American progressives: 1) an omnipotent central government controlled by them, and 2) an assumption that there is a bottomless pit of money to be siphoned from an equally bottomless pit of wealth. But this is not the same nation that experienced unprecedented prosperity from 1946 to 2007. It is not the same nation in which these narcissists on the left grew up, never knowing national adversity or trauma.
The manner in which these progressives, and their titular leader Barack Obama, are conducting themselves in the current campaign season is indicative of their arrogant and immature mindset. To the vast majority on the left, this campaign is merely a game played out on the playground of American politics, wherein they childishly engage in name-calling and temper tantrums reminiscent of spoiled brats determined to get their way, regardless of the consequences.
It is time to grow up and understand that the America that could absorb all the excessive spending, promises, and left-wing fun and games is no more. This nation cannot survive on its present course, and if that course is not dramatically reversed, those on the left will suffer as much as if not more than the bulk of the American people they are trying to rule. History has shown repeatedly that when an overwhelming political and social catastrophe strikes a nation, the people turn against the ruling class, often with a vengeance. In the United States, that ruling class is presently dominated by the American left.

LOL. So the author holds most Americans in contempt and he is a 'Conservative'. Now why do I not find that surprising.
We have a board 3/4 dominated by them.
And how many threads are you going to start with the same article?
Its never the costs that matter to the parasitic left, only the good intentions..................
Hey, when I was 18, I voted for Jimmy Carter.
He was promising hopey changey and stuff.
Then I grew up.
The opening paragraph fails to mention that repubs are on welfare, are lazy, spoiled and feel superior also. There is no total control of these conditions by one set group. So the story opens with a falacy of truth.
I voted for Reagan, then grew up
One of your idiots is telling us that according to huis bullshit poll the youth vote is going 40 percent for Romney. could you pick an argument please. either there is a notable shift in the youth vote for your guy, or the youth is all idiots who will vote for Obama. Shouldn't you be more welcoming to those kids who want to switch sides instead of playing the old guy who is pissed because of those damned kids on his lawn? Give them some cookies and invite them down into your basement dungeon for a little boy scout but hole indoctrination catholic priest style.
