Some time back, a Republican posted on this blog that Trump's candidacy was going to result in a massive defeat for the Republican party and set it back for fifty years as per the Goldwater example he used. As it turned out those of us that felt the people of this country wanted a choice and not the same solutions to the same problems that have not worked for decades were correct.
For this country to recover from the accumulative damage that has been done to it, many painful measures will have to be taken. For instance, the illegal immigration problem will have to be solved. A work esthetic is going to have to replace the gimme gimme esthetic that liberals of both parties established in order to by votes. The cost of health care will have to be addressed and lessened through competition among providers. Over restrictive regulations will need to be eliminated and government agencies will have to be reduced in size or eliminated. Taxes will have to be reduced and investment in business to create jobs and the economy. The social security problem will have to be addressed as there is a moral obligation to provide for those forced to participate in it for their entire working lives. Individual civil rights such as those confirmed in the Bill of Rights will need constant protection. Then there are socially moral issues such as abortion that will come into play.
I would like to see if we could have an adult discussions about the result that will come about when Trump tries to address some of them. Will the result be that the "progressives" will be able to overcome reform and return to the same old same old or will those that actually produce be able to hold the course? It took decades to reduce the country to its present condition. How long, if it can ever be done, will it take to make it recover? Is this a chance for recovery or is it a bump in the road on the path to having to come back out of the ashes? Will people be willing to make the needed sacrifices or will it have to be forced on them? After all, the direction we were headed in was doomed to fail so change would have eventually have occurred in any case. Do enough people realize this fact?
If my liberal friends respond with the same ideology they always use, please tell me why it will work now after failing for years.
Is Rico finally going to be able to see the conservatives "DO SOMETHING"?
