Musings on the Election

Posted by revkharma on November 5, 2008

Ok, today it’s done. The people have voted and we now have President Elect Obama. Some general thoughts, in no particular order here:

There are some advantages to this outcome. First, the conservative movement can now throw away the junk pile that is known as the republican party. The GOP pretends to be conservative, but shortly after taking over in 1994 they lost their way and became just another institutional political organ of Big Government. 

We live in a country founded on a Constitution. This is a major shift for US politics, but it has been accomplished without the violence that accompanies such change in so many places in the world

Now that the leftist wing of the Dem party controls everything, they cannot hide their agenda. My hunch is that as they begin to impliment such things, more and more Americans will be repelled by the socialist agenda, and reject them next time around. 

Paradoxically, we might just have an easier time militarily. When a republican is in power, the dems reflexively oppose almost any use of the military. With their party in charge, we may see less opposition to proper use of the military and less demonizing of our troops. As an illustration, I refer you to Ron Silver’s statement during the inauguration of Bill Clinton. Many in the crowd were angered by a fly over by some fighter jets. Then suddenly, as Silver retold it, he realized … ” No, this is OK. They are OUR jets now, this is OUR military” ( I am paraphrasing… you can find the quotes out there). The mind set is  that as long as they hold the levers of power, it’s good.  Now I am not saying that I’m happy to see the Anointed One as commander in chief, but maybe once in the Oval Office reality may set in.

I took a ride today, through the area, back streets, neighborhoods and side roads. Everything is still there. We have not collapsed into anarchy. We are fine. This will probably be a period of instability and strife. We have to keep going, and work to make sure that America comes through better off in the end. Now is the time to sit back, take stock and ignore those who call themselves our allies but work only for themselves. Now is the time to make changes and restore true libertarian and conservative principals to our nation. Now is the time to field candidates who will embrace the true American ideals nurtured and planted by our founders.  

We must reflect on the gift we have and work to put things back the way they were planned. This will not be easy, and the outcome is not certain. But we need to begin NOW to restore ourt Republic.

Keep the Faith!

    Go this in an email from you earlier and figured the reply was pertinent to this discussion as well… In regards to the conservative restructure meeting below:
    About two-dozen conservative leaders met today at the Stanley, Virginia home of Media Research Center President Brent Bozell in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains to discuss conservatism’s future in the wake of Tuesday’s election results.

    Rev,
    One could hope that a rebirth of TRUE conservative values would emerge, along with someone we can vote FOR, instead of AGAINST. A welcome change to the past 9 years…
    I Voted AGAINST Gore, voted AGAINST Kerry, and voted vehemently AGAINST Obama
    but the nation is tired of voting against someone. It allows intellectual laziness on our side and abandonment of principles and by gosh it allows us to become Democrat lite. Same terrible taste just a bit less filling, in fact it leaves a hollow feeling…
    Honestly, this time I voted FOR Palin, not McCain. I found that many conservatives were voting FOR her and AGAINST Obama. Some, maybe many, hoping McCain would reach his expiration date like the Dems were surmizing about, so Palin could be Pres. But I digress, I warned of our choices last year being poor. Voting for the secondary of a ticket never works. It may bolster numbers slightly but it’s the top of the ticket that’s needed.
    Let me put it another way… McCain says that unconditional talks with the enemies of the US is dangerous and working with them in a conciliatory way is wrong headed and silly. Yet does he not do the same thing with the other side here at home? Sorry, but it comes off a little disingenuous when the pot calls the kettle black. Oh crap can I use that phrase anymore?? Don’t misunderstand the above statements, I think the Democrats are every bit as dangerous as the foreign enemies. The leader elect Obama has mentioned several times he wishes to bankrupt vital portions of our economy, rewrite the constitution, and take self determination and restructure it into pure socialism. He dines and pals with terrorists and to call him anything but, at minimum, a sympathizer and at worst a traiterous scam artist, is silly. So for McCain to cross the aisle is the same thing to me. Willing appease for a bargain or a bill and has even taken his own jabs at the constitution to “cross the ailse”. He is for carbon cap and trade like Obama too. We have learned conciliatory tones and crossing the aisle has never worked before. Hitler was a prime example, yet we have our own Neville Chamberlain in McCain and we can thank him, and a weakened conservative party for the new socialist progression and spread much like in the 30’s and 40’s for the Nazi’s.

    What else have we learned? Any similarities with Reagan and Obama? Wow those two in the same sentence… We have learned that “if you are luke warm I will spew you forth” applies to the American public as well. We have learned that working with the other side means bringing them TO YOUR SIDE! Not crossing over and going to meet them on their terms and their side. And… if Conciliatory tones are given, it is after victory, not before. A victory that means they have to come to your side of the aisle to work together. McCain has learned a hard lesson and the conservatives unfortunately, have learned it too.
