Over The Cliff

Britain looks to be about to elect a Conservative government in the person of David Cameron, rejecting the Labour government of Gordon Brown. But not so fast. David Cameron is no Maggie Thatcher, being a lot closer in political philosophy to Gordon Brown than to Winston Churchill. It seems a Conservative government of Britain will be only slightly less to the left of the outgoing Labour party, retaining the welfare nanny state in its entirety, because the British public have grown accustomed to the state doing everything for them. And we are headed in that direction. President Obama is bent on transforming the United States into a carbon(less) copy of the enormously successful economies of socialist Europe, and for the same reason: large parts of the American electorate have become dependent on the federal government, and the more people the Democrats can crowd onto the teat the more Democrats will be elected. And so it goes, and so we go, over the socialist cliff.   



The world is crumbling ‘neath our feet

As what was Right’s now Left

The liberal win is now complete

And we are now bereft

Of any counter argument

To liberal thought and deed

Conservatism now seems spent

They’ve joined the hearts that bleed

One mustn’t think it’s over there

The problem’s not our own

They’ve had their own Obamacare

They’ve put their souls on loan

To nanny state in every guise

Sharia to the dole

They’ve crossed the lonely bridge of sighs

To never more be whole

Whatever happens to the Brits

Has happened first to France

And before them it came to Fritz

Now it’s our turn to dance

To think that in my father’s time

Not many years ago

The country’s economic clime

Was government go slow

But now we’re headed for the cliff

The music’s getting loud

Just time for one more jazz time riff

Then join the lefty crowd
