Moo: Tis the end

NW Reading

One of the Republican Northwest blogs we check out has been MooCountyNews, based in Tillamook – a politically competitive area. But blogger Jim Welsh seems to have gotten turned off politics after the November election, to judge from his most recent – and last, to judge from the headline – post, “I will write no more forever.”

From it:

So where to now for those of us who are conservatives in Liberal America? Well, if you have nothing else to do, you can continue to fight a losing battle skirmishing as you retreat and occasionally getting off a lucky shot and electing a conservative. But let’s face it, the jig is up. With a national debt that will soon be 20 trillion dollars, with tens of thousands of baby boomers coming onto the Social Security rolls each month and also onto Medicare for the next 15 years, and, in Oregon, an Oregon PERS liability that will never be addressed until entire budgets of counties and school districts are consumed by retirement payments, and a national and state economy that will not have the ability to grow due to the above situations, does anyone really think that the decline of America can be reversed?
