Republicans won control of the House and cut deeply into the Democrats' majority in the Senate in yesterday’s election. The House speaker to be, John Boehner is reported to have said The election results were "a repudiation of Washington, a repudiation of big government, and a repudiation of politicians who refuse to listen to the people.” “Speaker” Boehner was spot-on!
Last night saw the largest turnover of seats in the US House since the 1940’s. Republicans captured at least 65 seats in the US House with some races still not decided and at least a few of those are expected to go over to the Republicans.
It was an historic event. Over in the US Senate, the GOP picked up at least six seats with a number still undecided.
The results of this election will be spun and re-spun by the democrats, but the fact is, it was a slap down of the Obama Regime and it’s socialist agenda.
Here, in North Carolina, voters cleaned the House and the Senate! Now republicans control BOTH houses of the NC State General Assembly. It is the first time since 1898 (get that?) -- 1898 – that republicans have controlled the NC Senate. North Carolina’s democrats received a “Cease and desist” order from Tar Heel voters.
All across the country, except for two or three deep blue states, the story was much the same.
It was the expected tsunami. It crashed upon the shores of Washington, DC resoundingly. Nationwide voters demonstrated their displeasure with the liberal-socialist democrats and handed control of the People’s House, the House of Representatives to the republicans -- just four years after the same voters had taken it away. This time the republicans will have a solid majority in the House -- one that can produce laws and polices that will be on the books for many years to come.
Out in California, one of those “deep blue” states, Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown returns to the governor’s mansion. That was no surprise and practically everyone understands now that California is a socialist state and hopelessly lost to the remainder of America.
Most Americans understand what is about to happen with California. One of two things must happen. Either America cuts California loose by revoking its statehood, or the American taxpayer must anti-up and pay off California’s bills, which they ran up through their own stupidity. Somehow, the latter just tends to tick me off.
If we bail California out, they will never learn their lesson and will, like the children they behave as, continue making those same dumb, infantile, mistakes over as the American taxpayer underwrites their idiocy.
And what of the Tea Party? It proved, last night, it is a force to be reckoned with. It solidified its position as the viable Third, or even second party, which now hangs as Damocles’ Sword over the heads of the republican and democratic parties. That, in my estimation, is a GOOD thing!
The Tea Party put the lie to the Mainstream Media’s claims that tea partiers were mean, and violent and mad as hell, etc., etc. Just as we knew -- NONE of that was anywhere near the truth -- except for the “mad as hell” part!
