Podcast: Love and Debt: Post-Election Thoughts

/>

 

 

Barack Obama’s tiny victory may gratify the left, but it won’t be much comfort during the storms that lie ahead.  Despite the apparent vindication of “The One”, the USA is running out of the liquidity required to fund his compulsive spending.  Once that happens, trendy distractions such as “free” contraceptives will look incredibly silly.

The debt bomb will likely be a transformative event. It will shake up political alignments in ways that are hard to predict.  The  stereotypical 22 year old who voted for Obama in 2008 will be 30 in 2016, finally off the parental dime (and medical plan).  He or she may be without a steady job, without benefits and without good career prospects and the wherewithal to start a family.  A lost decade, indeed.

The election bitterly disappointed the conservative base of the GOP, who had serious reservations about Mitt Romney, but grew to respect him as a fighter and thought that liberation from the statist paradigm was at hand.   But life goes on.  We need to look at what went wrong, but more importantly, why our core message is so right. We must devise new ways of getting it across to more voters.

Drop by to hear a discussion of this challenge on the latest episode of “Italian Tomatoes” on Blog Talk Radio. We discuss the dynamics of 2012, and ways to reach those critical independent voters who proved so elusive this time around.
