"At this point it looks like America has chosen a rapid decline over a slower decline."
Since we now seem more likely to be heading towards a national disaster, more of us will see it coming with Obama then we would have with Romney. We weren't going to wake up one day and discover that it is 1984, those changes come more gradually. With Obama in the White House, not only will the decline come faster, but more of us will be aware of it. Maybe lots of us will see, sooner, this decline.
And its not as if we expected Romney to improve our situation. I, for one, am tired of Obama and wanted to see Romney's attempt at changing our country. But his attempt would have been too little too late, in any case.
