The recent elections delivered the most crushing defeat a political Party has suffered since Ronald Reagan’s 1984 Forty-nine state landslide. Democrats were rejected by every voting block demographic: young, old, men, women, rich, poor. Everyone said, “Enough is too much already!” Exit polls everywhere say their handling of the economy and the general direction of the country were the major reasons. BHO tried to make the election about him as he tries to make everything about him. His party spent millions trying to run away from him, his record, and his agenda. However in the end the President’s repeated statements that his policies were on the ballot and that all these Democrats had supported him and his agenda outweighed his friends protests that they hardly knew him.
We must avoid this trap. We need to urge our elected representatives to do all they can to stop any and all unconstitutional actions on the part of the executive. They need to reassert the power and authority of the legislature to reasserting the system of checks and balances that is at the heart of the American system of government. If need be the legislature should use its power to curb the federal courts. They have the power to make place any issue beyond the scope of judicial review. They even have the power to abolish all federal courts below the Supreme Court.
The authority is there in the Constitution if our elected representatives will use it. They can right the ship of State before it capsizes into the shabby swamp of socialist collectivism. However I am sorry to say these bold new fresh faces we have just sent to Chicago on the Potomac will learn how to play the game before they get there. They will reaffirm John Boehner and Mitch McConnell as the same old same old and before we can say wave the wave will have broken against the cliff of status quo that is the Washington establishment. Our new heroes will bend over backwards to reach across the aisle, and they will do nothing to stop our rule-by-decree executive who allows his dedication to anti-colonialism to color every decision.
We may have been a colonial power. We may have been aggressive at times in our past. However, America is the greatest force for good that this world has ever known. We have provided the model for individual liberty, personal freedom, and economic opportunity for the world. American exceptionalism is a reality even if the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue doesn’t understand it.
Without enough votes to override a veto, there is little chance of rolling back the transformation. Just remember gridlock is out friend.
Keep the faith. Keep the peace. We shall overcome.
