Ominatio (o-mi-na’-ti-o): A prophecy of evil.
When the party who is to blame places the blame on those who are blameless;
When the party who is to blame willingly fails to cooperate to remedy the harm they themselves have caused;
When the party who is to blame wantonly induces and perpetuates the peoples’ painful suffering, ironically, for partisan political gain;
Then, they thwart the Peoples’ Pursuit of Happiness and dishonor Liberty’s name.
Surely, when the party who is to blame will rise to great power, it shall come to pass that the Republic’s wounds will fester and will not heal;
Surely, when the party who is to blame will rise to great power, the world will recoil in horror–shocked and awed–by the party’s psychotic pursuit of The End of Time as the preordained purpose of its reign.
Beware the Day of Election!
