Almost 6 years ago…

I decided that I have way too much stuff out there on the server so I started going through some of it.  I came across something I wrote on November 9, 2006.  It was obviously a post I wrote for a blog, but I did not have one then.  So I must have written it as a guest post for Mark’s blog (which, at the time, was entirely different than what it is now).  I must have a gift for prognostication as most of what I put in there has come true.  In this case, it has not been a good thing.

So, for your reading pleasure, here’s what I wrote more than 5 years ago, right after a mid-term election.

I realize that I have not posted here in a long time.  I’ve just been way too busy.  There just does not seem to be that much time any more to get everything done.  Ah, the benefits of working.

However, I feel the need to post a couple of comments about the past election.

1)      Republicans deserved to lose, mainly because they have not acted like the conservatives they claimed to be.  I do not feel that there are many conservatives left, so getting people elected to congress who are going to be worth it is difficult at best.

2)      Democrats who won over incumbent Republicans did so mostly by claiming they are the conservatives.  I don’t believe them.

3)      Now that both houses of congress are under liberal control (can’t get much worse than Pelosi and Reid), hang on to your pocketbooks.  If you thought that past few years of spendaholics was bad, just you wait.

4)      Bush needs to use his veto pen many, many times over the next two years.  If he goes along with tons of new congressional spending there will be a liberal in the White House in 2 years.  People are sick of massive government spending.

5)      If we have a liberal congress and president in 2 years, with the current leadership or similar in place, welcome back to the Carter years.  We will have rising inflation, rising unemployment, rising interest rates, PLUS the constant threat of terrorism within our borders, increasing crime like you wouldn’t believe, and God-fearing Christians will be increasingly persecuted for standing up for their beliefs.  Some of this will be muted by individual state laws, but the federal agenda will promote it.

6)      If, on the other hand, the now powerful liberals act like the liberals we have come to know and love, and fulfill the agenda they have said they wanted, which is to raise taxes, impeach Bush, investigate everything they can, leave Iraq hanging in the breeze, and generally ruin every good thing that has happened the past several years, and if Bush will play conservative and do everything he can to keep all of it from happening, there is a good chance that in 2 years, sanity can prevail. 

7)      In the mean time, do things that will keep the bad effects of government to a minimum.  Pay off your credit cards.  Put some money aside.  Store some food.  Purchase ammunition.  Do your job well so you are a valued employee, not a liability.  In short, spend the next couple of years getting your position in life into as good of a place as you can, because the storm is likely coming.

Now, you might think from some of this that I am somewhat depressed.  Not even.  I think that we have the opportunity to get our individual ducks in a row in spite of what our national leadership is doing.  Anything that congress does now will take some time to have an effect.  The Bush tax cuts have taken several years to make the national economy what it is now.  It will take some time for detrimental things to have the opposite effect.  All I am saying is take advantage of the current times to put yourself in a good position and pray mightily that it doesn’t change.

Since writing this, items 3, 4 and 5 have pretty much happened as written, with the bonus of high energy prices thrown in.  And if you don’t think Christians aren’t being persecuted, witness the political battles over abortion and so-called birth control rights. 

Keep in mind that I wrote this before I ever heard of the current pResident.  I see him as the destroyer of all that is good and right. 

And #7 applies now more than ever.  I do not think the storm has hit yet.  Just wait until the race wars start.
