Conservatives and other Republicans have won a landslide victory of historic proportions in 2010! The GOP has gained control of the House, made headway within the Senate, and gained full control of many State Assembly and Governorships. What does it all mean?
There have been a wide range of opinions and analysis of the epic defeat of Democrats throughout the U.S. though most are missing the plain and simple truth...
U.S. voters looked at ballots and voted for the MOST CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE in each race.
The exceptions to this result were Liberals and drones that were simply ushered to the polls and told how to vote (ie Union members, criminals, etc). Otherwise, it is my opinion that most of the voters did exactly that.
In any event, the GOP clearly has been given another opportunity to exact the will of the American people. What is our will? Stop the movement in Government toward Socialism! Restore our freedoms and liberties that have been encroached upon in the last couple years! Reduce spending, the size of Government, and our taxes! Be transparent and cast votes on laws that reflect our desires! That's all we want.... Nothing more or less than that.
It is also my opinion that the only thing that matters going forward is to introduce laws and vote to support a Constitutional Conservative agenda of limited Government, private property rights, and liberty. We, as an electorate, must reject any other action by continuing to vote out those that refuse to comply with this fundamental mandate.
Forget the days of earmarks and bringing home the bacon - THOSE DAYS ARE OVER! This frivolous spending as well as rewarding special interests and constituent donors will be exposed and punished. Please utilize the new majority to pass votes for things like:
- Repeal of Obama's 'Health Care Reform Bill'
- Repeal of Obama's 'Financial Reform Bill'
- Eliminate earmarks
- Immediate and significant reductions in Government spending - Across the BOARD!
- Settle the tax increase concern issue - Lame duck can extend and the new Congress can make permanent
- Protect the border or support border States to achieve a defined and safe Southern border
The new congress also needs to be ready to keep the Lame Duck session in check. I'm not sure how they do this - threatening repeals or de-funding measures in the event this radical Congress gets frisky during their exit.
By proactively sending legislation to the Senate to be passed or obstructed, the GOP accomplishes two very important things:
- Submit legislation that reflects the will of the American people (in other words, 'do the right thing')
- Get opponents of these legislative priorities on record (this includes POTUS if he vetoes bills)
After this, we'll see if so called 'Blue Dog Democrats' are willing to step up against their own party. We'll also see who the real 'obstructionists' are. Also, just by a longshot, there is a chance we can get the U.S. back on the right track this year rather than waiting until 2013... Time will tell. I won't hold my breath...
