Twice in my life I have seen the people vote against the Democrat agenda. I remember exactly where I was when I heard election returns in each outcry. True, one was about forty-five minutes ago. The vision of the populous speaking out is exhilarating. Let me reminisce!
In November of 1994, I remember hanging out with my friend Maria. Newt Gingrich and his Contract for America was being born right before my eyes on CNN. We were watching election returns at her father’s pharmacy. We had a Democrat president at the time. The Republicans were waking up from a Bush senior induced slumber! I had the same feelings of excitement I felt at four years old watching the map turn red in 1980 when Reagan was elected! All I remember was the pretty map! Watching with Maria, I felt the same thing!
Tonight, less than a year from Mr. Obama’s inauguration a nail has been driven into the Democrat’s agenda, just like Martin Luther’s nail in the church door. People of Massachusetts, and the millions in the other forty-nine states rejoicing with Scott Brown, are speaking out against the march toward socialism! No, we want to go toward a balanced budget, toward smaller government, and toward a safer nation! I hope the other forty Republicans are hearing the message too!
Republicans, please spend less, strengthen the country without enlarging the government, and don’t screw with our healthcare unless you are truly going to improve it (reduce costs, tort reform, CYA medicine, etc.)! Bill Clinton was smart enough to roll with the punches and he found success with a Republican Congress! Hopefully the President has learned something and the Republicans will remember it isn’t about legislating morality. It is more about governing the people through sound leadership so they, the people, can pursue their own happiness. Not forcing litmus tests and good ole boy beliefs down our throat.
My point is: Democrats and Republican in Washington D.C. please read your history books. Most of all, please read our Constitution. The people will follow leadership! One of my favorite movies depicts a Democrat who gets leadership and the current media!
“They want leadership. They’re so thirsty for it they’ll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there’s no water, they’ll drink the sand.”
“We’ve had presidents who were beloved, who couldn’t find a coherent sentence with two hands and a flashlight. People don’t drink the sand because they’re thirsty. They drink the sand because they don’t know the difference.”
Currently, our populous doesn’t know good leadership! I urge everyone who reads this to find some positive way to speak out and make our great country better! Support strong leaders with integrity, otherwise vote all the others out of office!!!
