Well, what can we say? Other than there’s a lot of work to do. Here are my initial observations from the election:
1. Incumbency is still a powerful thing in the US Senate.
Harry Reid?!?!?!?!?! Are you kidding me?!?!?!?! I smell a rat. How does Angle go from being up average of 2.7% and trending up to losing by five points????? Here’s how. Regardless, with the kind of leverage a Senate majority leader has, and the kinds of resources he can pull in, it’s a surprise Angle even came close. It’s unfortunate but true. Once again, there is a reason the ruling class supported the 17th Amendment and I support its repeal.
2. The US House still represents the will of their district.
OK, it’s short of my 65 prediction, but see my next two points regarding that. The House seems to be the only body of government our founders would recognize today. It is still the volatile, unruly mob reflecting the peoples’ views they represent that our founders intended it to be.
3. There is a reason Democrats wish to create a dependent class.
A dependent class means power to their benefactors. The more people depend upon Washington for their daily sustenance, the more they will vote that way. It’s gonna be a long, difficult haul to restore this country.
4. There is a double standard when it comes to personal character.
O’Donnell, Angle, and McMahon lost because of character issues we have been told. Really!?!??!?!? Once again, I don’t buy that for a minute. When are we going to stop believing what the propaganda wing of the DNC tells us what to believe? I’m guessing Barney Frank retained his seat because of his sterling moral character. Or that Sean Bielat lost because of severe character deficiencies. Come up with a better narrative! Or don’t, it still seems to work. This is a direct consequence of moral relativism. The more we say there are no set standards of morality, the more liberals cannot be held to one. The more we quote our standards of morality, the more these hypocrites can point at our human mistakes and play “gotcha!”
5. Democrats continue to lie to get elected; and ignorance still reigns in areas.
West Virginia, I’m looking at you. How could you?!?!?! Seriously?!?!?! You and 60% of the American idiots, sorry, citizens, knew exactly what the impact of Obamacare would be. Your great Governor/Senator Elect did not? I don’t buy that for a second. You have to be the most willfully ignorant populace of the 50 states. Then again, this was Byrd’s former seat. See point three. I rest my case.
Well, final reflection. I’m disappointed, severely. But, I’m not surprised. There is a reason Democrats win. It’s because it’s all that they have. Their leadership is dependent upon perpetuating a victim-based electorate and creating a dependent class voter base. We conservatives actually have lives and work outside of politics. There’s a reason idiots like Lauren Valle can go from place to place to stir up trouble and protest. There’s a reason why SEIU thugs get bussed into places to protest/beat down opposition. This is ALL that they have.
Finally a word of encouragement. DO NOT GIVE UP!!! We won last night. We did not win as much as we thought, but look how far we have come in two years. There is a lot of work to do and we cannot give it up. Continue the Tea Party. Continue the fight. This signals the end of the Obama nightmare. They cannot push through legislation anymore without collusion with Republicans. We will prevail.
