Welcome to the United Socialist States of America

I certainly don’t mean to sound alarmist with the post title, but that’s what it feels like these days. Especially when you consider the lending industry bailout, the proposed auto industry bailout (which we know is going to happen), Amex has their hands out seeking fed “relief,” and now … mayors across the country are asking for an economic bailout from President-elect Barack Obama. Add to that the move to nationalize healthcare, already taking place in the Senate before Obama officially becomes president, and the confirmation by Obama’s Chief of Staff that “this country needs compulsory civil service.”

Obama hasn’t even taken office yet, and I feel like I’m already starting to not recognize this country anymore.

Update: Oh yes – and how could I have forgotten the promised “tax cut” for 45% of Americans who don’t even pay taxes?
