Slurpee Drinking Republicans Beat the Hell Out of Elitist and Out of Touch Democrats
Call it a tsunami, or an earthquake, but I call it a Victory by the American People! Over the last two years we have seen hundreds of speeches and interviews by President Obama where he lectured us on how we should think, live and how much we should earn.
Obama, in lock step with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the entire left wing, rammed big government takeovers in banking, insurance companies, college loans, the auto industry and the healthcare industry. Democrats raised the deficit by $1.7Trillion dollars, spending more money than all the Presidents in this Republic, combined!
No wonder we kicked their asses down the street, not just out of Congress and the State House. This is a repudiation of the left-wing agenda of Obama and the Democrats, not a vote of confidence in the Republican party.
Americans will be very vigilant over the next two years and any divergence from what the voters expect will mean more losses to both parties in November 2012. But above all we must work towards the defeat of a second term of Barack Obama to really take this country back.
First our newly elected Congress must stop the wild spending, stop the tax increases, restore confidence in private businesses and bring back jobs — NOT government jobs, private sector jobs.
The House and Senate must repeal Obamacare and reform healthcare. They have to seal the southern border and deal with illegal immigration as the American voters want, not big business and lobbyists.
This election night I attended a conservative group function where we cheered for each defeat of a Democrat and even louder for a Republican victory. What an inspiring night where We The People restored America and real hope and change!
House Republican Leader John Boehner spoke about his parties victory. Boehner’s speech was humble and respectful, in stark contrast to the smug and elitist words spoken by Nancy Pelosi in 2006!
“Let me just say this: it’s clear who the winners are tonight, and that’s the American people. Your voice was heard at the ballot box! Your voice!
Listen, I’ll be brief, because we have real work to do – and this is not a time for celebration … not when one in 10 of our fellow citizens are out of work … not when we have buried our children under a mountain of debt … not when our Congress is held in such low esteem.
This is a time to roll up our sleeves. To look forward with determination. And to take the first steps toward building a better future for our kids and grandkids.
Across the country right now, we are witnessing a repudiation of Washington … a repudiation of Big Government … and a repudiation of politicians who refuse to listen to the people.
With their voices and their votes, the American people are demanding a new way forward in Washington. And I’m here tonight to tell you that our new majority will be prepared to do things differently… to take a new approach that hasn’t been tried before in Washington – by either party.
• It starts with cutting spending instead of increasing it.
• Reducing the size of government instead of expanding it.
• Reforming the way Congress works and giving government back to the people.
• And for all those families asking ‘where are the jobs?,’ it means ending the uncertainty in our economy and helping small businesses get people back to work.
The people’s priorities will be our priorities. The people’s agenda will be our agenda. This is our Pledge to America … this is our pledge to you!”
Let’s hope they keep this promise, however, we the voter must remain vigilant and let them know when they stray from their pledge.
President Obama retains his hatchet man, Harry Reid and leftist dilettante, Barbara Boxer. I don’t expect the President to change his left wing agenda in the least and this will help in his reelection bid going down in flames in 2012.
The most heartwarming victory was that of John Kasich (R), winning over Ted Strickland, in Ohio for the governorship. John is as honest as they come and a true patriot.
As of 1AM Eastern time the Republicans have won 230 seats to the Democrats 163. The Senate is split with the Republicans holding 46 seats to the Democrats 49. Here is an interactive map
Change has finally come to Washington, inspired by those in the Tea Party and everyday Americans who were fed up with the arrogance of our elected officials doing their own business, instead of the people’s business.
Are you listening Obama? Wake up, hear the people and do their bidding!
