OK, that was sweet. After all the ridiculous race- and gender-baiting done by the Left, today the Right is celebrating wins by Mia Love, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, Joni Ernst and more. And I’m seeing more and more evidence of people wising up and leaving the plantation. I must admit that I laugh when thinking of the Leftists I know who continually say that the Right are racists. My favorite is the guy who has literally zero people of color as Facebook friends (Uh, unless you count the person whose profile picture was a black Labrador). Hey mainstream media, why don’t you have bigger coverage of the historic Mia Love and Tim Scott wins? Shouldn’t you be happy about those?
Even with the rampant media bias, Leftist educational indoctrination, shameless race / gender pandering, IRS targeting of Conservative groups, hypocritical Koch-blaming, rampant voter fraud and more, we still won!
Yes, I know the influence peddlers have already begun their work to corrupt this process, but last night was huge. The rate of decline of the U.S. was dramatically reduced.
Hopefully the Republicans will be smart and pass one common sense bill after another until Obama’s veto pen runs dry. After running from Obama during this election, the Left may not want to be associated with opposing what most Americans want, and at a minimum they’ll expose Obama as the anti-American enemy he is. They should vote to repeal or neuter Obamacare, defund Planned Parenthood, prevent Obama from granting dangerous and costly amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, investigate the IRS/Fast & Furious/Benghazi, and more. Otherwise, we should find some Republicans who will do those things.
I also hope they’ll work to educate people on basic economic principles so they will understand how minimum wage increases are counterproductive, how supply and demand works, etc. They have the microphone now with an opportunity to use it wisely. Hopefully they’ve learned that majorities aren’t forever.
This should bode really well for 2016. Obama is too proud to change, so the Left will have to run away from him. That will alienate some of his base. And Hillary will implode at some point. The “war on women” meme ended up hurting the Left his time, and that will only get worse after last night.
There is no one of good faith left on the other side who will agree to any legislation that is not poisonous to the fabric of the Republic. Consider what they have stood for the last two years – they have literally tried to rewrite the First Amendment to make it not apply to wealthy conservatives. They have tried to force religious institutions to pay for abortions and participate in gay marriage ceremonies regardless of their religious convictions. They have confiscated billions of tax dollars in the name of “economic stimulus” and self-dealt their families and friends huge awards of taxpayer money. They have consciously eliminated the free choice of Americans in their health care decisions. They have shown more concern about Islamic terrorism being called “Islamic terrorism” than about stopping Islamic terrorism. They believe in eliminating the death penalty for convicted first degree murderers but in using taxpayer funds to pay for the deaths of unborn children. They have consciously and deliberately fomented racial, class and gender divides in America for the sole reason that they perceived that it would help them to remain in office.
They have not apologized for doing any of these things and they show no remorse for any of it. None – zero – of them have taken a stand against the excesses of their party while they were in power.
Not only should they not be worked with, they should not even be invited to the table to be part of the discussion lest their gangrenous, festering and destructive ideas should further infect our caucus. These are not people who should be trusted to babysit a cat, much less to have access to the levers of all the coercive powers of the Federal government.
Working with these people is not what America elected you to do Republicans. It elected you to stop them. So for the sake of America, stop being so concerned about sounding “reasonable” to the talking heads on cable and get the buckets of flaming tar ready.
