Getting what we deserve again

I’ve very dis­ap­pointed in you. Not only did you fail to roll back the sales tax but you elected peo­ple par­tic­u­larly for audi­tor and in Ma-​6 whose cor­rup­tion is pub­licly known. Almost as bad you returned the per­son most respon­si­ble for the cur­rent nation­wide finan­cial cri­sis to office in Ma-​4. I talked to many of you and I really thought you had finally reached your break­ing point but appar­ently it will take much more bad news to shock you out of your com­pla­cency. Have no fear it will come.

Mass­a­chu­setts gets the gov­ern­ment it deserves 11-​3-​2010

I remem­ber read­ing the fic­ti­tious speech of King Herod Agrippa in I Claudius where he talks about the advan­tages and dis­ad­van­tages of dif­fer­ent forms of gov­ern­ment includ­ing a republic.

Republics have draw­backs. Things are slow to get done because you have to achieve con­sen­sus and a minor­ity can keep a major­ity from doing things, how­ever this is a small price to pay vs a pure democ­racy in that those checks and bal­ances to makes it almost impos­si­ble for a small major­ity to oppress a minor­ity and makes it dif­fi­cult even for a large major­ity to beat up on a minor­ity with­out push seri­ous pushback.

There is one thing about a repub­lic that can be can be either really painful or really ben­e­fi­cial depend­ing on your beliefs at any given time, it’s that in a repub­lic you always get the gov­ern­ment you deserve.

I was very grate­ful that after eight years of Barack Obama whose pres­i­dency I judged was the 2nd worst in his­tory behind Buchanan (although believe it or not my opin­ion of him has actu­ally dropped over the last two years) it turned out the coun­try didn’t Deserve Hillary Clin­ton. I sus­pect many if not most of those peo­ple who voted against her didn’t expect the incred­i­ble suc­cess of the Trump admin­is­tra­tion that we’ve enjoyed but because of their neg­a­tive deci­sion we got the pros­per­ity we deserved.

Now after two years of pros­per­ity under Trump the major­ity of peo­ple in a major­ity of dis­tricts have decided that after 8 years of power the GOP didn’t deserve to keep the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives. This is a tad ironic as the House did man­age to pass many things that the Sen­ate failed to move on but because of the nature of our elec­tion the GOP House paid the price for this.

So in the same way that the country’s rejec­tion of Hillary Clin­ton gave Trump power the fail­ures of the GOP in the present day over­rode the fad­ing mem­ory of the dis­as­ter of her prior lead­er­ship which are likely to be renewed.

It’s my opin­ion that at worst the Social­ist Demo­c­rat House aided by their media allies will bring the Trump boom to an abrupt halt and at best slow it down con­sid­er­ably, iron­i­cally hurt­ing the very poor they claim to rep­re­sent who have enjoyed their best chance for pros­per­ity in decades over the last two years.

There are many hor­ri­ble and fright­ing adjec­tives that can and will rightly be used to describe this sit­u­a­tion that Amer­ica and Amer­i­cans will find them­selves in over the next two years thanks to this deci­sion, but due to the nature of our repub­lic “unde­served” is not among them.


I’ve very disappointed in you. Not only did you fail to roll back the sales tax but you elected people particularly for auditor and in Ma-6 whose corruption is publicly known. Almost as bad you returned the person most responsible for the current nationwide financial crisis to office in Ma-4. I talked to many of you and I really thought you had finally reached your breaking point but apparently it will take much more bad news to shock you out of your complacency. Have no fear it will come.

Massachusetts gets the government it deserves 11-3-2010

I remember reading the fictitious speech of King Herod Agrippa in I Claudius where he talks about the advantages and disadvantages of different forms of government including a republic.

Republics have drawbacks. Things are slow to get done because you have to achieve consensus and a minority can keep a majority from doing things, however this is a small price to pay vs a pure democracy in that those checks and balances to makes it almost impossible for a small majority to oppress a minority and makes it difficult even for a large majority to beat up on a minority without push serious pushback.

There is one thing about a republic that can be can be either really painful or really beneficial depending on your beliefs at any given time, it’s that in a republic you always get the government you deserve.

I was very grateful that after eight years of Barack Obama whose presidency I judged was the 2nd worst in history behind Buchanan (although believe it or not my opinion of him has actually dropped over the last two years) it turned out the country didn’t Deserve Hillary Clinton. I suspect many if not most of those people who voted against her didn’t expect the incredible success of the Trump administration that we’ve enjoyed but because of their negative decision we got the prosperity we deserved.

Now after two years of prosperity under Trump the majority of people in a majority of districts have decided that after 8 years of power the GOP didn’t deserve to keep the House of Representatives. This is a tad ironic as the House did manage to pass many things that the Senate failed to move on but because of the nature of our election the GOP House paid the price for this.

So in the same way that the country’s rejection of Hillary Clinton gave Trump power the failures of the GOP in the present day overrode the fading memory of the disaster of her prior leadership which are likely to be renewed.

It’s my opinion that at worst the Socialist Democrat House aided by their media allies will bring the Trump boom to an abrupt halt and at best slow it down considerably, ironically hurting the very poor they claim to represent who have enjoyed their best chance for prosperity in decades over the last two years.

There are many horrible and frighting adjectives that can and will rightly be used to describe this situation that America and Americans will find themselves in over the next two years thanks to this decision, but due to the nature of our republic “undeserved” is not among them.
