The Day After

Well here we are sitting with a bunch of broken hopes and dreams for what might have been.  We rode the roller-coaster and in the end we didn't enjoy the outcome.  Was it any real surprise that Obama won a second term?  Did we have such high hopes that we didn't see this train wreck coming?  Are our dreams for a better tomorrow permanently dashed, with this more than likely outcome?

We can sit around and bemoan our fate and say how is it possible that the Joker won re-election.  The fact is Romney was very few people's first choice and the fact that he lost to a sitting president by so little is actually a miracle.  Does this mean we can sit around and do nothing because we lost?  No, because now is the time when almost 50 million Americans feel they have been screwed by the system.  These 50 million Americans are going to be angry and hurt, so we have to show them there is light at the end of this tunnel of darkness.

We need to show them that the Republican party is a joke and they couldn't even oust a piss poor president like the Joker. The next four years are an opportunity to drive a stake through the heart of progressives because the economy is only going to get worse under such collectivist leadership.  Businesses will only continue to ship jobs over seas.  Prices are only going to continue to rise.  Taxes are going to shoot up.  Misery is going to be the order of the day.

With all this depressing news ahead, what are we to do to keep our own sanity.  We have to show people that there is a different way.  We've had years of Republican rule, that resulted in financial ruin.  We've had years of Democrat rule that only made things far worse.  It is time for a new option.  We need a new fiscal conservative party that drives this country back from the cliff.  This new party is about restoring prosperity through government austerity, which will be a direct contrast to the Joker and his agenda of big brother government.

The one thing that can not happen is for this party to allow the fiscal conservative brand to be stolen by the social conservatives.  It is time to put the social cons in the corner and fix this country.  You are more than welcome to be a fiscal conservative, but leave your theocracy at the door. 

We could have won the Senate if it weren't for dumbass comments on rape, who the hell thinks that rape is a gift from God and who are you to tell that victim they are a monster for making the toughest decision of their lives.  I don't believe in abortion, but that is a very personal choice.  For the heathen out there that doesn't have God in their heart, it might be the right choice for them.  If God wanted that baby born, he would have given it to different parents, He orders all things. 

We should do everything in our power to fix the tragedy, but it should not be the only issue.  It should not stand in the way of fixing the greatest country on Earth.  We need to love our way back to greatness by showing people there is a better way than the government dole.  We need to show them that there is something more for them and there is reward for making adult choices.  The reward is not instantaneous, but it is there and even better than the government dole.

We have the internet and social media to show people that they don't have to rely on the old ways of doing things.  We can show them that facts about government austerity leading to prosperity.  We have to show them that depending on themselves is better than depending on the government.  It is going to be a rough couple of years until the next election, but it is an opportunity to get a message of hope out that there. 

So pick yourself up, dust yourself off, dry your tears, and ready yourself for a bumpy ride.  This isn't the end, but just another opportunity to start a new.  People always need hope when things are at their worst, and things are going to be really bleak. Did we give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?  If it is worth having, then it is worth fight for.
