Thomas Jefferson once stated of the two political parties, “Both of our political parties, at least the honest portion of them, agree conscientiously in the same object: the public good; but they differ essentially in what they deem the means of promoting that good. One side believes it best done by one composition of the governing powers, the other by a different one. One fears most the ignorance of the people; the other the selfishness of rulers independent of them. Which is right, time and experience will prove. We think that one side of this experiment has been long enough tried and proved not to promote the good of the many, and that the other has not been fairly and sufficiently tried.” There is no other way of honestly describing last Tuesday’s election other than a political blitz by the Republican Party, more specifically economic conservatism. Not only did it pick up a majority in the U.S Senate, but created a super majority in the House, and also picked up a majority in State Governorships. Even once Democrat strongholds Illinois, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, and Indiana turned red. But, it was not just a choice between whether or not the candidate had an R or a D in front of their name, but whether the ideology of the candidate espoused more individual freedom or less, and greater economic prosperity or more failed Keynesian economics. And the voters clearly chose the Republican ideology.
Despite how Mr. Obama and the liberal pundits may strenuously attempt to describe this mass rejection of Mr. O’s reign by the people as one of hoping for less “gridlock” in D.C, it was clearly a bazooka blast aimed at Mr. Obama and his policies and his Progressive-Alinsky ideology. After nearly 6 years of Obamalogy the exit polling of the election shows: Nearly two out of three voters believe the nation is going in the wrong direction, 7 out of 10 believe that the economy is bad, nearly 8 out of 10 voters are worried about the nation’s economic future, and most importantly over half disapproved of President Obama’s performance and still less than half of the voters like Obamacare. According to the CSMonitor.com. Both political parties are seen most unfavorably by the people: Six out of ten voters say they are dissatisfied or angry with the Republican leadership in Congress and greater that half say they view both the Republican and the Democrat Parties equally unfavorably. It is time clearly for a change of course.
What the results of the election of 2014 should tell the creatures in D.C is that economic issues are still, and have always, ruled the day for the folks. Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Ohio, traditional Democrat States, all are, or soon will be, ran by Republicans because it is Republicans who have shown that their conservative economic ideology makes not only cents, but dollars. And it is that ideology that we the people hope to transfuse into the halls of the Capital and the White House. Removing the ideology of big government and Progressivism.
Though Obama has arguably made great strides in achieving his goal of fundamentally transforming the nation, as reported by Brietbart.com, the one thing that has been certainly laid to waste in his wake is the economy:
- The national debt has nearly doubled since President Obama’s election. Today it stands at 74 percent of the economy.
- CBO projects that mandatory spending and interest on the debt is projected to consume 94% of all federal revenues 10 years from now.
- Since 2009, the percentage of working-age Americans who are not in the labor force has reached near-record levels. During that time, the number of adults outside the labor force has increased by 12 million. There are fewer full-time jobs in America than when the recession started. Nearly 29 million of the 124.5 million Americans in prime working years – ages 25-54 – are currently without a job.
- Most American workers have not seen their incomes increase.
- CBO projects that Social Security will go bankrupt in 2032, a year earlier than the Social Security Trustees predicted last year. The Disability Insurance Trust Fund is in the direst condition, as CBO expects it to be bankrupt as early as October 2016.
What is wrong with America today is just not due to Obama, the Democrats, or just the Republicans, but the Progressive ideology – that big government is good and that we the people are incapable of running our lives productively, independent of government. The Progressive political ideology permeates both sides of the aisle in D.C. Lets not forget that the first Progressive was Theodore Roosevelt, a” Republican”. Obama is just a naked Progressive with a twist of extreme, anti-American radical spunk, and narcissism, with a mesmerized and politically intellectually uninitiated populous, chained by untethered political correctness, to enable him.
But, if the political creatures in D.C chose to not heed the expressed wishes of the voters of last Tuesday, they might best heed the prophetic words of Jefferson, “You might be able to fool the people for a while, and they may go astray, but sooner or later the American people are going to wake up and they will correct the course’”.
