In the federal holiday spirit let’s happily contemplate the pleasures that lie ahead. 2016 will be a marvelous year, but 2017 will be even better.
After next year’s electoral rout the left will console itself with demography. The old white guys will have won their last election, for sure. 2016 will have been their last gasp. Black, brown and yellow will overwhelm them — count on it. At some point. Very soon. The fact that the victor will be our first Hispanic President will gainsay this analysis, but it will have to do. The alternative — that the left itself has been rejected — is too depressing to contemplate.
Our first President of southern European ancestry, with increased Congressional majorities, will begin a sustained assault on the Leviathan. The border will be sealed, a semblance of order restored to world affairs, and the stage set for strong economic growth. Federal departments will be abolished, the budget reduced, and entitlements reformed.
The Red Queen* and all her hive will be driven to a frenzy — powerless, marginalized, and ignored.
We will crush our enemies, and see them driven before us.
If that isn’t enough to brighten up your day, then humbug to you, too.
