If a majority of America's voters ignore the socialist causes of the economic meltdown -- The CRA, ACORN, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and the Democrats in Congress who facilitated it -- along with the $trillion rescue of the mortgage/financial industry, they will certainly suffer painful voter remorse by the end of the next decade.
Indeed, if Barack Obama is elected president, and Democrats increase their power over Congress, and the lid is removed from limited government, extensive freedoms and free enterprise will be lost. Only then will voters realize they made the biggest mistake of their lives. Alas, those who unwittingly fall prey to the communicable disease of socialism -- transmitted through politics, the education establishment and the media -- won't realize what happened to them until they become part of what will certainly become a giant underclass.
Surely, voting for Obama and other Democrats will be like taking on the teaser rates of an enormous adjustable rate mortgages (ARM), ending up homeless, and voting for them again. Sadly, the same thing could happen in California in this election, which would give Democrats a veto-proof two-thirds majority in the legislature.
