Welcome to 2024

Public schools now allow children to decide which bathrooms they would like to use based on what gender they wish to belong to. Children are allowed to come to school dressed either as a boy or a girl, or any combination thereof. The federal government has passed laws which prohibit employers to require their employees to dress in a certain way. Everyone has the right to look like anything they wish to, the law states; regardless of where they work or who they work for. It's not your father's sexuality anymore. Spin the wheel, choose a gender.
Buying and using recreational marijuana is legal across the country in all states, and many other drugs are also being considered for legal recreational use. Marijuana dens have sprung up in most major cities. Smoking tobacco products has at last been outlawed.
Unfettered abortion rights have been secured in most states now, making it totally the woman's choice to abort her baby for any reason and at any point during the pregnancy, including any time during the ninth month before the baby is actually delivered.
Utility companies have installed "Smart meters" in the majority of private households which are able to monitor everyone's gas and electric usage in order to conserve energy. These meters have the ability to turn off or lower gas and power into the home so that government standards of "proper usage" can be maintained. This is being touted as an environmental necessity. Wood burning fireplaces have been outlawed.
The United States has no credibility on the world's stage anymore. Our friends don't believe in us and our enemies don't fear us. As a country, we are impotent. And there isn't enough Cialis in America to help because it's all being given out free to hoboes thanks to Obamacare.
The year is 2024. America has had 16 straight years of ultra-progressive policies enacted at all levels of government, mostly federal. President Barak Obama in his eight years established European style socialism in America by acting on his own, bypassing Congress, and literally breaking the law to push through his own Leftist agendas such as Obamacare and The Dream Act.
You'd better be prepared to deal with all that and much more in the years ahead because that is exactly what we're going to get. No question about it. Your next president is Hillary. The next time a conservative might have a shot of winning the White House will be 2024…maybe. And that's a big maybe. And even if a conservative does makes it, the country will be so far Left by that time it just might be too late to go back. We may have passed the tipping point.
How am I so sure Hillary Clinton will win the next presidential election? Because she has the press, the entertainment industry, and all of academia on her side spinning her propaganda and lifting her to messianic heights (just as they did with Obama). And there's another reason Hillary will win, she's a Liberal woman and the liberal media will harp on "the War on Women." Our country is at a point now that it doesn't want a great leader anymore; it wants a politically correct leader.
Our nation wants so badly to show the world just how fair we are, that the most important criteria for being President of the United States today isn't leadership qualifications, it's what minority group you belong to. Anyone who doesn't get that Obama got into office because he's half Black is delusional. That's precisely why he won. Democrats had a choice in the primary to nominate either Hillary or Obama - the first woman or the first racial minority. They chose the racial minority. But now Hillary's up to bat. It's her turn and she will win the nomination.
Any man the Republicans nominate (no matter what his race) is dead meat. Going against Hillary, he will be branded a "bully" because a man isn't supposed to pick on a woman. If he does, that makes him a brute, a woman hater, a thug. So in order not to come off that way, he will back off. He'll go soft. He won't push her on her record in government, because it wouldn't be "gentlemanly." She'll skate, like always. It's a lose/lose for the Republican man. Either he's a bully or he's weak. Either way, he loses.
That's the way it worked in the last two elections with Obama. A white man isn't supposed to pick on a black man, so McCain and Romney pulled their punches, they held themselves back and in so doing lost their elections.
This is all good news if you are a big government liberal. But what do you do if you happen to be of the conservative persuasion? Fire up a Martini, sit back, relax, wait for 2024 and hope the Republicans can find a tough conservative woman of color.
