Most of the votes are counted. Winners and losers have been declared. All day yesterday, and most of today, I’ve been projecting into the future, what yesterday’s election results mean. Many Democrats went down to defeat yesterday, as did the majority of libertarians running as such (Michael Medved likes to call them “losertarians”). Stalwart Republican Governors like Rick Scott of Florida, Rick Snyder of Michigan, Paul LePage of Maine, and Scott Walker of Wisconsin held off their lowlife Democrat challengers, and will now have the next four years to continue to implement their policies of greater freedom and lower taxes for their constituents. Since Scott Walker in Wisconsin did away with automatic union dues withholding for teachers, their unions have lost up to half of their members (whose dues support Democrat candidates), and school districts that were in debt and doing poorly are running surpluses. In New York, Andrew Cuomo will have a mandate to increase taxes on his “golden goose” financial-industry bigwigs. I wonder when they will finally have had enough, and decamp en-masse for Florida (which has no income taxes, and a much nicer climate).
I hope this election finally puts to rest the Democrat lie of the Republican “war on women”. How about Mia Love, the black woman from Utah, who won election to the House of Representatives. How about Saira Blair, elected to the House from West Virginia, at age 18! How about Janet Nguyen and Young Kim, elected to the California legislature (which is 100% in Democrat control). How about Senators Joni Ernst of Iowa, and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia. Republicans can’t be undertaking a war on women, because they ARE women!
Many of us conservatives out there are gloating, at least for a while. But just having R’s in control of Congress does not guarantee that we can push back the tides of socialist decline in our country. The next Congress will have some huge projects to get to. Like repealing all or part of Obamacare, stopping the higher minimum-wage, fighting back against the president “pen-and-phone” declaration of amnesty for millions of illegal aliens (which is guaranteed to come), repealing many of the cuts to the defense budget, and enforcing our southern border to stop more illegals from crossing. They will have their work cut out for them, big-time.
Here is what I want the Republicans to do (good luck with that!):
Fight Obama on every front. No compromise! No yielding on our principles!
Pass smaller spending bills to fund the important things, like the VA, Defense, and the CDC.
Stop the Executive Branch from tearing down our allies, and courting our enemies. Support the State of Israel in every way possible.
Get control of the EPA bureaucracy, and STOP the war on coal, which is still a vital part of our energy mix.
Approve the Keystone Pipeline, which can create thousands of “living-wage” jobs.
STOP TRASHING OUR BASE-LISTEN TO AND WORK WITH THE TEA PARTY, because we are the future.
Begin the process of eliminating the Department of Education in its entirety. Reduce the peoples’ taxes in the entire amount of their budget.
Enact tax reform, so the people who make this country work can be free to invest their money their way, and save for their own retirement.
Stop the Bureau of Labor Statistics from grossly understating the real unemployment rate in the US. No more doctored figures!
Quit taking abuse from the mainstream press. Start fighting back against their lies and mis-information campaigns, and refuse to answer their leading questions-point out what they are really doing. And take this fight to the public, all day every day.
And most importantly of all, DEFEAT THE LIMBAUGH THEOREM BY TYING OBAMA’S NAME TO ALL HIS DESTRUCTIVE POLICIES. MAKE IT ABUNDANTLY CLEAR JUST WHO IS DESTROYING OUR GREAT COUNTRY.
I want the next two years to be the Obama Administration’s worst nightmare. And our finest hour.
