Post Election Follow-up


I guess it's safe to say that I won't have much of a career as a prophet or seer, now isn't it? What kills me about the entire debacle is that it was completely avoidable. The Democrats didn't win, The Republicans lost. There is a big difference there.

You see, you can only win when you run on ideas. The Democrats don't have any ideas, other than to Impeach Bush and transform America into a Socialist State. But they certainly don't have any ideas that the vast majority of Americans are willing to get behind. Look at the Candidates who won big. Professed conservatives, every one of them. Look at the Republicans who lost. RINOs.

That gets right to the crux of the problem. The GOP was swept into power by conservatism. But over the last 12 years they have been slowly moving away from their conservative base towards a more liberal stance. They have become the Republican party of the late 1800's and early 1900's; Fat, Lazy and Arrogant. And it cost them. The question is, will they learn from it? Will they put forward a ticket of Strong conservatives in the '08 elections? Will they marginalize and reject the so-called "centrist" Republicans that cost them the '06 elections? Time will tell.

Of course, Speaker Elect Pelosi won't have any of that nasty old conservatism in the Democrat party as long as she's in charge. She donated mightily to the winning Dem's war chests, and it's time to pay the piper. I'm sure that she will sit all the fresh new Dem faces down and tell them how it is. "Play along and you might get some money to run your re-election campaign. Don't play along and you're gone in two years."

So we can expect nothing but unabashed far left wacko liberalism to come out of the house for the next 2 years, along with hearing after hearing on all the favorite pet complaints the Dems have had over the past 12 years. Heck, we might even get a Clintonian Revenge Impeachment hearing! Meanwhile they will be busy de-funding our Military and cutting and running from Iraq.

That's the part that bugs me the most. I can deal with most of their wackiness, but the Iraqi people want us there and need us there to ensure stability as they rebuild their country. If we leave now it is likely that chaos would be the result. If we set a public timetable, the terrorists will simply bide their time, and hold back until we leave. Then once we are gone they will attack with renewed ferocity on an unprepared Iraq. Either way it would go badly for the Iraqi people. They might survive as a country, but it would be bloody and ugly.

This is a critical time for the Middle East. So much is in the balance right now, and America cannot afford to pull back at this juncture. We need to stick with it and stay involved. The Dems will do everything they can to try and thwart that, and that's why so many Terrorist leaders wanted them to win. The Terrorists know that they can cow the Dems, but the GOP will fight them. So they want Dems in power. At least until they can setup their Caliphate in America. Then anyone that doesn't convert to Islam or become a dhimmi will be gleefully beheaded.

Let us hope that it doesn't come to that. I think the best we can hope for over the next two years is a completely gridlocked Congress where nothing gets done. Given the propensity for excess that the Republican party has been showing lately, and the well known excesses of the Democrats, perhaps that is not such a bad thing after all. If the remaining members of the GOP can gridlock the Dems into frustration and a showing of their true far-left colors, then I think we stand a good chance in '08. Otherwise I fear mightily for the security of our country.

God Bless America.
