2012 Election Day Spoiler Alert: George W Bush WinsNovember 5th, 2012
The world is holding its collective breath in anticipation of tomorrow’s highly irrelevant election outcome. Soon, Americans will learn whether the nation’s record deficit spending will be recklessly increased by 3% or 5%. We will learn whether the bailouts will be issued to Republican campaign contributors or Democratic campaign contributors (see also, in both cases: Goldman Sachs).
We will learn whether the US military will be foolishly ordered to surge in nations like Uganda for celeb-approved Democratic Party promoted reasons or in nations like Mali for reasons only known to Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham, and John McCain. We will see whether the FBI will use the Patriot Act to target Tea Party activists or environmentalists and Occupiers. However, whether Mitt Romney or Barack Obama wins the general election tomorrow, one thing is clear: the winner will be carrying out George W Bush’s policies, and, by proxy, his fourth term.
Big-Time Deficits and Handouts for the Military Industrial Complex
George W Bush’s first two terms brought massive deficit spending on centralized, top-down programs like No Child Left Behind and Medicare Part D. Meanwhile, military industrial complex profiteers were given unprecedented access to the public treasury. Obama continued these trends, passing a massive Mussolini-style corporate-fascist takeover of the healthcare industry and eviscerating several nations with relentless bombings via drones and Tomahawk missiles. Guantanamo Bay remains wide open, and American interventions have created unprecedented levels of hatred throughout the world, guaranteeing eventual blowback strikes from terrorists.
Romney, on the other hand, authored and successfully passed ObamaCare’s state-level prototype, RomneyCare, while governor of Massachusetts. He fears that Obama’s threats to bomb Iran are not being shouted loudly enough, and, as president, he will make our hostile posture even more obvious than the “most crippling sanctions of all time” already have. He believes that our out of control spending can only be curbed by increasing it by 3% next year.
Civil Liberties, Constitution Among 2012 Election Day Losers
George W Bush set America on an unprecedented new course by passing the PATRIOT Act. Since tagging in Barack Obama to continue his mission, additional civil liberties abuses have occurred. Obama has signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011, which grants the government the power to imprison Americans without charge. The first extra-judicial assassinations of Americans were carried out by Obama’s administration, and Romney finds these policies to be worthy of continuation.
The government continues to spy on the emails, text messages, and phone calls of private citizens without a warrant, and unmanned drones are coming home from places like Pakistan and Yemen to be used against Americans right here on US soil. Bank transactions over certain dollar amounts are now reported to the government automatically, and the War on Drugs is being used as an excuse to steal property through civil forfeiture.
Obama and Romney are fighting tooth-and-nail to determine who will be carrying out George W Bush’s policies by proxy for the next four years, but does it matter which one wins? Some say Obama will spend faster, but he is likely to have a GOP legislature hamstringing his efforts for partisan reasons. Romney’s propensity to spend 2% less on domestic spending would likely be counterbalanced by equivalent increases in welfare to defense contractors.
There are some significant results that could occur in tomorrow’s election. If Gary Johnson achieves 5% of the vote, the Libertarian Party will have attained a type of “major party” status for the next election. Also, voters in CO, OR, and WA may legalize marijuana for recreational use via ballot initiatives. Both Obama and Romney will attempt to stop any state from legalizing marijuana in violation of state’s rights and the democratic process, but once states begin to pass these initiatives, it’s only a matter of time until the issue goes mainstream. Those possible outcomes could result in real, tangible change in the future.
However, regardless of any of these results, one thing is clear: George W Bush’s policies will be continued by the next president, whether it be Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.
