As 2012 has now come to a close, and we begin to set our sights on the year ahead there are many things to remember and many more opportunities to improve in this new year. As the rest of the nation was watching the Time's Square revelry on Monday night, our President and Senate were etching out a compromise to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. (For those of you who voted the way you did in November, compromise means the Republicans caved in and gave the Oxymoron party their way.)
The past year was filled with many decisions that were made, may still remain to see the depth of their consequences. In November, voters were asked to review and evaluate the worst US President since Jimmy Carter, and they chose to re-hire him. In August, our consulate in Benghazi was attacked by extremist terrorist, and given no help when they requested.
Earlier in the year we celebrated the policies of George W. Bush that led to the capture and death of Osama bin Laden. Then our current President toured the world apologizing for America's greatness while claiming responsibility for events that would have been impossible had he kept his campaign promises.
So as 2012 has now come to a close, we look to the promise and hope of what to expect in 2013. Although no one can predict what the year will bring, there are some things that we can be certain will happen in the coming year. Taxes for every American will be raising. Personal liberty and freedom will be peeled back even more. Israel will continue to attract the ire of the world for being settling in land they successfully defended when attacked by hostile nations.
But have no fear, whatever happens in 2013. Regarldless of what takes place in this new year, we can rest in the assurance that someone will come along to tell us that it was someone else's fault.
