Election 2014- What Just Happened?
Battle for the Soul of America
So- We just survived another election.
The first question debated in the news was “was it a Republican wave?”
And from Democrats, a melancholy “what does this mean?”
Many were also surprised not to see too much jubilation in the “right wing media.”
Looking at the figures above, the Democrats got wiped out. Yes, it was definitely a Republican Wave. And that’s without final reports, which could only increase the size of the walloping Democrats recieved.
. Two Big Questions
Why were the Democrats wiped out?
Why don’t conservatives seem overjoyed?
What Were the Voters Thinking?
Here are some headlines that may indicate what voters were thinking:
- Drudge headline – DC Stunned as Republicans Claim History
- CNS reports: Family Gap: Democrats Lose Big Among Married Voters With Kids
- Exit Poll: Voters Who Go to Church Were More Likely to Vote Republican
- 100% of Newly Elected GOP Senators Campaigned on Repealing Obamacare
- Women Desert Obama’s Dems
- Sandra Fluke Loses Senate Race in California
- Limbaugh- Republicans Elected to Stop Barack Obama, Not Work With Him
- Bill Clinton Useless in Arkansas, his home state
- MSNBC: Illinois Governor’s Race ‘Real Blow to President Obama’ -Republican takes Illinois
- Gun Control Candidates Crushed
- Headline in the UK: Obama Appears to Be a Political Leper
The above headlines indicate that the People of the United States are giving President Obama (and our entire government) a Mandate- a mandate to:
- protect the family
- respect faith & conscience
- repeal ObamaCare
- represent women properly
- stop trying to purchase women’s votes with free offers of birth control (apparently this doesn’t even work in California)
- respect the rights of Americans guaranteed to us by the Constitution
- remember who’s boss in the United States
Should Not Be a Surprise
Why were so many surprised by these results?
Here are some facts bout Americans:
Twice as many Americans consider themselves conservative as liberal.
90% of Americans believe in God.
82% of us pray and believe that God answers our prayers.
70% of parents and 60% of teens support abstinence before marriage.
Close to half of Americans have guns in their homes.
Clearly, Americans tend to be conservative, religious, prayerful, committed to family and to morality, and committed to the rights guaranteed to us by the Constitution.
What Was Obama Thinking?
So, in hindsight, Obama’s attempts to force a radical agenda on the US were naive, condescending and foolish.
Obama’s attempts to steer less educated Americans with his Alinsky tactics only insults our citizens; people are still intelligent, logical and moral without formal education. In fact, the less educated sometime have the most common sense. (President Obama seems to be the converse of that- no lack of education, but terrific deficiency of common sense. )
The Alinsky formula of lying, dividing, bribing and manipulating a population only works until the subjects realize the name of the game.
Lying to pass legislation, offering baubles such as cell phones and birth control pills to purchase votes, and inventing the existence of “wars” and victims so that the administration could pretend to come to their rescue with executive orders, are all tricks that insult the intelligence of the Americans the Obama administration has tried to manipulate.
Obama ought to have known that Americans would wake up at some point and would revolt against his progressive agenda.
Americans are a trusting, forbearant and tolerant bunch, but they are not fools.
Sadly, President Obama and his cohorts do not seem to have gotten the memo.
President Obama is defiant, and is still vowing to achieve his two most unpopular goals, ObamaCare and amnesty, by Executive Order.
Nancy Pelosi is trying to claim that the Democrat wipe-out was due to voter suppression (!!!).
The War is On- in the GOP, and in the Nation
Many conservatives have feared that the Republican establishment may not respond to the message being sent by the electorate in this election, and might focus on trivial accomplishments in non-contentious areas, possibly driving a conservative split in 2016 which would enable the election of a Democrat clone of President Obama (like Hillary Clinton).
This is why many conservative are not overjoyed at the election results.
They fear that the moderate RINOS (Republicans In Name Only), the establishment of the Republican Party, people like John Boehner and Reince Priebus, will take this election as a mandate supporting them and their ever left-leaning agenda.
But there is some hope that the Republican party may respond to the demands of the people, as they should do in this democratic republic.
They may be prepared to undertake the repeal of ObamaCare.
On other issues, conservatives in the party will have to battle for the soul of the Republican Party.
In actual fact, this is going to be the Battle for the Soul of America.
Gear Up, America!
Gear up, pray hard, get politically involved, and fight this historic battle of the next two years.
The reclaiming of America!
It depends on you and on me.
Time for the democratic return of morality to government.
