The natural progress of things is for government to gain ground and for liberty to yield.

More Hope For America

It looks like we are going to get some hope with the arrival of the Obama administration:

Hope 1: A few actual (R)epublicans are acting like fiscal conservatives and opposing the bailout, especially when the unions that have so burdened the auto makers figure they can continue to overpaid. Yes, that is correct, the unions refuse to make wage concessions which will ultimately help to unravel the company. Do they understand that making half of what they were making is a long way from making the nothing they will be making after bankruptcy?

Republicans, breaking sharply with President George W. Bush as his term draws to a close, refused to back federal aid for Detroit's beleaguered Big Three without a guarantee that the United Auto Workers would agree by the end of next year to wage cuts to bring their pay into line with Japanese carmakers. The UAW refused to do so before its current contract with the automakers expires in 2011. [Read]

Hope 2: The corrupt Chicago machine from which politician Obama was birthed is crumbling, and there is no way in the corruptness of Chicago politics that he comes away unscathed...that's just not how you get ahead in politics in Chicago, and he got ahead.

President-elect Barack Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, refused to take questions from reporters this morning about whether he was the Obama “advisor” named in the criminal complaint against Gov. Rod Blagojevich. [Read]

Hope 3: This is a private hope, the possibility that people will awaken to understand how completely Obama and his fellow (D)emocrats pander to mediocrity. These people have know no hope because they are unable to see greatness in the possibility of the individual, which is why they ask us to all join hands and embrace mediocrity, warmly, pathetically defeated. (There are some of us who will not join hands...in the hope of what is possible, and the greatness that will come even with the placement of an obstacle known as the mountain of mediocrity. We will not join hands because we are too busy climbing your mountain, standing upon your surrender.)
