There are a lot of things one could say about last Tuesday’s election results… but very few things that are worth saying. The hand-wringing, finger-pointing began right away and will continue.
A lot of experts have been trying to figure out what went wrong… and it may very simply be that many people in this country still believe in President Obama…
While it might make you feel better to weep and moan or to vent about who and what is to blame, none of that will serve to save what is left of our Constitution nor will it protect freedom or the Republic in general.
As revolting as the election may have been, the results gave me a more clear understanding of what we are up against now and how we must proceed from here.
First, we must not give up. Most knew that the election of a President was not going to be the final act. Even if the other guy had won, there was still a lot of work to be done. So now we still need to get to it. There are still school boards that need to be given a new voice. State governments needs to be taken back from the Progressive movement. There is a need for candidates at every level that believe in the Constitution and smaller government.
Second, we must not bail. Don’t listen to those who say we must be more moderate, we must abandon values, we must abandon principles, etc. They are wrong.
Now, more than ever, we must fight on, my friends, fight on.
We turn our attention back to Congress, to fight the battles that most certainly lie ahead.
* No tax increases—but instead, true tax reform.
* Repeal Obamacare—piecemeal if necessary, but replacing it is important.
* A balanced budget
* No more raising the debt ceiling
* Less regulation of small businesses
* Immigration reform—not amnesty, but real reform.
* We ABSOLUTELY MUST BE VIGILANT about defending any efforts to attack our 2nd Amendment. It is our last line of defense against tyranny. Remember, in the 20th century, 170 million people have been annihilated by their own governments after being disarmed. We must stand strong against any further efforts to restrict or disarm the American people.
That is a good starting list.
Consistent determination, creativity, and strategy is what we need now.
At this turning point in America’s history, let’s remember the spirit of the Founders who never gave up the fight. Find that fighting spirit within yourself and join me as we face an enemy that is formidable yet not invincible. We’ve taken a hit. We lost a battle, but not the war!
Let us learn from our mistakes.
Now, let’s get back to work and continue the fight.
