Hello Europe, Good Bye America

From the Wall Street Journal: 

"Looking back on America's experience after World War II, the results of the recent election, and the challenges faced in Washington, it is obvious our country has become more liberal. Yes, we had Ronald Reagan, but we also had Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson and Jimmy Carter. And now, we have Mr. Obama, the most liberal of them all, elected to a second term. The truth is that the American ship is headed across the ocean toward Europe, aiming to become more like France, Italy and Greece."

"Those who worry about the Europeanization of America, and the related economic and social decline are right to be unsettled. Republicans and conservatives must spend some time learning lessons from the election and then do all they can to slow the ship, stop it, and change its course, or soon enough we will look like those countries do today."

I'm not feeling optimistic about this at the moment.
