Here's what I'm seeing from what happened last night:
1. The American people have spoken. Although I do not believe
Conservatism is a minority mentality in America, what is exposed through
the evidence from yesterday's election is that Conservatives are not
well represented, and thus will not be able to well represent Americans
in its political endeavours. This needs to change if America is going to
become a powerful leader on the world stage again, instead of a
2. Americans, as a whole, do not understand
the damage that has been done to our ability to sustain ourselves as a
Nation. We've forgotten what self reliance means, and have traded hard
work and dignity in for revenge politics a la Valarie Jarrett, David
Axelrod and President Obama. America, to our dismay, has shown that the
sensationalism of the dirty political game is what makes them happy.
We, as a Nation, are in for a devaluation of the dollar as a world
currency. The world, as we know it, will begin to stop trading
commodities in our currency and we will begin to see a downward spiral
into banana republic status as we continue to try to print our way out
of the obligations Keynesian fiscal policies will create for our
progeny, and theirs. America will see its credit rating dropped from the
As and we will become the biggest Greece this world has ever known. The
rest of the world will be forced to cut us off for fear of our failure
taking us down with them.
4. Because the House remained in GOP
control and the Senate did not change control we will see a perpetual
Continuing Resolution built on a 2009 budget baseline that included over
$1T in spending that was intended to be temporary. Instead of what
President Obama promised in a reduction of our National Debt and
reduction of our Deficit Spending we will see at least $5T more added to
our debt with $1.3T/yr deficit spending per year until Obama leaves
5. There will be continued attacks on the
non-governmental institutions that have helped define what it means to
be an American. The Constitution will see attack after attack as Justice
Ginsburg retires and two more lifetime appointments to the Supreme
Court are appointed by President Obama and Harry Reid. These
appointments will be divisive, have defined designs on their personal
interpretations of the Constitution and what it means in terms of how
the Government can control the individual and the individual entity. We
will see an increased fervor from those already in our Government for
Command and Control governance, where the regulatory state will
determine your outcome regardless of the legal ramifications of your
actions within your state of residency. If you wish to succeed it will
be at the behest of the Government, not because of your desire to do so.
Iran will be emboldened by our inability to throw off the shackles of
tyranny which bind us to our fate. Ahmadinejad will see this election as
akin to what happened in 2009 in Tahrir Square through violence and
unproductive demonstration against a totalitarian regime, and recognize
our unfulfilled will to oust a dictatorial despot as further evidence
that we do not possess the means to prevent him from developing a
nuclear device. Iran will reach that goal or Israel will be forced to
stop them, and they will have to do so on their own. This will spark the
powder keg that is the Middle East into what could very well become the
catalyst to WW3. Under President Obama we will not be prepared to
protect ourselves or our allies, and we will not be prepared to feed and
power ourselves without the rest of the world's resources available for
our purchase because the Command and Control state will not allow for
continued domestic energy and agricultural development.
Because the President and those in the Senate will see their continued
status in power as a mandate from the people for them to lead us to
their designs of what this Nation should be we will see massive
increases in taxes for the wealthy and what is known as the upper middle
class. Those who have means will leave this country for nations
friendlier to their wealth, and those who do not have means will suffer
at the hands of a Nation that does not value their productivity as much
as it values punishing it through wealth redistributive measures. Those
who are in the so-called middle class will find it harder to succeed,
and those who are poor will become poorer still. There will be a rash of
selling of stock and a retraction from the market by those who have
capital but are unwilling to spend it in anticipation of the increased
taxation that will come beginning in 2013 and continue with
the implementation of ObamaCare.
We're in for a very rough four
years, everyone. If you measure our Nation's success in terms of the
unemployment numbers and GDP, both are in store for a respective
downturn as those who produce begin to find new markets to move their
productive activities into. War will not become a thing of the past, and
we will see many more instances where Libya's failures will become the
We have been shown to be the moral minority. That doesn't
need to be our death knell, but at present it will be discouraging. Do
not despair. When confronted with the truths about Conservatism in the
face of the lies of Liberalism and outside of the echo chamber that is
the mainstream media, the American People invariably choose the former
over the latter. We have to find a way to cleanse the GOP of those less
than upstanding examples of who and what we stand for, and better
educate those who are willing to listen. Our message is clear, but the
minds of those receptive to it are not, and the hearts of those who
would co-opt our souls for avarice and power are all too common.
is not the end, everyone. It is a beginning. Fight Club and the Dogs of
War are not dead. Eventually Americans will realize what they've done
to themselves. Once they do we will be there to help guide them out of
the dark and into the light that is Freedom, Liberty and the Pursuit of
My two cents starts here.
I freely admit this, I am not very happy with what occurred last night. There have been many reports of improprieties around the country. I think the process was compromised in several locations. I will wait and see if there are proper investigations into such activity. I do have this little bit from a friend of mine in Madera County, California.
"In Madera County, voters were given TWO
ballots for POTUS. I know...I vote in Madera Co. THAT is how obama
won...double-voting." Pam McKinney.
"ABSOLUTE VOTER FRAUD. Across the board/across
the nation. Look toward the union thugs. Remember, the Election Depts
in YOUR county are run by government workers, the socialist democrats,
the union members. In Madera County where 89% of the population is
Mexican (and a LOT of them illegals), they were given TWO ballots. I
KNOW. Republican Congressmen had better form an investigative committee
and have every single democrat signature checked for legitimacy and then
count the signatures against ballots. There WILL be more ballots than
signatures." Pam McKinney.
Remember, this is a state that actively supports and coddles illegal aliens over and above the citizens. The Democrats, as they are called, are directly responsible for this. Governor Brown needs to be held accountable as well along with our Attorney General. That individual, Kamala Harris is a Card Carrying Member of the American Communist Party. Nuff said there.
After the shameful manner in which the voting was handled in many locals along with the blind faith of those who voted for a second term for the Current Occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, I will no longer give any respect to Barack Obama. To me he is a pretender, usurper and a charlatan.
I am now considering liquidation of assets and heading to Belize.
The unintended consequences are already happening as reflected in the Dow dropping 300 points immediately upon opening of the stock exchange.
The United States of America is no longer the Republic which I served for the best twenty years of my life. It is now a third world septic tank. We allowed UN representatives from other countries to "monitor" our electoral process. Our currency is not what it was at all. Our "leaders" act as if they could care less. I include a number of GOP Senators in this as well.
All of those who voted and enabled the outcome of last night are going to be surprised when things start to fall in on them as a result of their lack of proper judgement.
As for California, the liberals who make up the majority in this once vibrant and productive state have decided, among other things, that a tax hike is in order. Prop 30 was passed along with other dubious measures.

Diane Feinstein 'won' her fourth term in the Senate.Term limits seem like a good idea to me.
I guess I am done for now.
"Sign on, young man, and sail with me. The stature of our homeland is no more than the measure of ourselves. Our job is to keep her free. Our will is to keep the torch of freedom burning for all. To this solemn purpose we call on the young, the brave, the strong, and the free. Heed my call, Come to the sea. Come Sail with me." -- John Paul Jones
