As November Nears.........

Conventional wisdom -and the polls- tell us that, come the November election, thanks to Obama's attempt to push this country to the Left of France, the Democrat Party will receive a will deserved shellacking from the people.

More, the common refrain seems to be, when they take control, the Republicans need to do more Party of No.

It's unlikely that the GOP will even attempt to make the changes I'd like them to do - that is, basically demolish the Federal government.

If they don't do anything else, my wish would be that the Republicans put forth one Catholic teaching that would turn the country around; subsidiarity.

( For those too lazy to click on the link, subsidiarity is defined as an organizing principle that matters ought to be handled by the smallest, lowest or least centralized competent authority. Political decisions should be taken at a local level if possible, rather than by a central authority.)

Our money should remain in our pockets, the decision as to what's best for our family and our community should be remain as close to home as possible. Trying to manage everything from Washington and giving "someone else's money" to everyone who might have his or her hand out, our government is destroying the country.

I'm not optimistic.
