Today's links and remarks

  • Best post-election statement: from Dano in my comboxes. Most likely, the President will take this opportunity to ram through his worst and most unpopular legislative ideas, then his party will get clobbered in the mid-terms, and he’ll leave office with basement-level approval ratings, having tarnished his party’s brand so thoroughly that his party’s nominee in 2016 gets clobbered, regardless of the quality of the opposition. In short, expect a photographic negative of the second term of President Bush the Younger. Lather, rinse, repeat.
  • Roissy: the point of telling ugly truths.
  • We made history. Gary Johnson was the first Libertarian presidential candidate to get over a million votes. ‘We’re the 1%’: we got 1% of the popular vote.
  • Dreher: SSM, social conservatism and the future.
  • The Remnant’s Michael Matt on the election: Barack Obama is not the problem. We are! Abortion is. Public schools are. A rotting pop culture is. Modernism in the Catholic Church is. Divorce and homosexual “marriage” are. Obama has been reelected simply because America, like any nation, will always only get the leaders she deserves. We told God to go to hell a long time ago, and God is now allowing us to see what life is like without Him. So lead on, Mr. Obama! “Thou shouldst not have any power against us, unless it were given thee from above. Therefore, he that hath delivered us to thee, hath the greater sin.” By the way I still say there’s no more Catholic vote. That stupid council killed us as ‘a people’. Catholics vote just like other whites: the muddled majority being peer-pressure liberals, and the devout (and, in our case, theologically sound) belonging to the GOP. There’s no such thing as Catholic science or economics, and I don’t think proposed Catholic third ways are the way, but still.

    Amen to that. It's as if it changed the Catholic religion. Ooops! I sound too much like a sedevacantist. :-)

    Why our Republic is definitely finished:
