NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
New Jersey needs to learn that elections have consequences. Ironically, state residents complained about the lack of hurricane assistance while they marked their ballots for President Obama.
I say, let them stew in their own Obama juices. Their suffering will soon spread throughout the country because Hurricane Obama is poised to strike a fatal blow.
In that respect, we are all New Jersians now.
It’s true; we are a divided nation, but we don’t need to come together — too late for that. Rather, we need to construct a wall between the two sides. We are plunging irreversibly into the abyss because there are now too many people who do not think or do not care. Therefore, people who do think and do care should stop trying to save the others from themselves. Such attempts only slow down the fall; they don’t stop it.
This was an incredible nation while it lasted, but it’s over now. Many of us embraced a vision of it that no longer exists. It is time to let it go — both the vision and the nation. It’s no longer our nation; it’s their nation.
Instead of exhausting ourselves trying to make it “our nation” again, we should withdraw and allow “their nation” to fail. Let them suffer the consequences of their own choices and decisions.
Of course, we will share their fate, but we are more capable and better prepared to endure the aftermath. We will be the ones to create a new nation — a better nation — from the ashes after the collapse.
No need for battles or revolutions, they will destroy themselves with own ideas.
It begins with our efforts to help and protect those on our side and spurn and deprive those on the other side and New Jersey is a good place to start.
