Ever since the 2006 Election I have been increasingly interested in the politics. 2006 was the year the American electorate rejected another president, George W. Bush, and what he and his Republican Congress was doing and not doing. In Ohio the then Senator Mike DeWine, the ‘moderate’ Republican was running for re-election as a fake conservative and was beaten by a seething socialist, Sherrod Brown. That got my attention. Both the inferior candidate that the Republicans offered, as well as the typical liberal fare served up of late by the Democrats.
Fast forward to 2010, 2 years of a very liberal socialist regime, which followed a compromised ‘compassionate conservative’ Bush, TARP, nationalization of banking, insurance and automobile industries, a near trillion dollar Stimulus bill, earmarks galore, ObamaCare, mishandling of the Gulf oil crisis, etc. I joined the national wave of Tea Party Movement and Town Halls which reacted to the above named destructive policies and legislation. The General Election of 2010 was referred to correctly as the Ultimate Tea Party. The people made their voice heard to a deaf Congress.
Who were the winners and the losers in this election?
To add insult to injury in the race for U.S. Senator, Ken Buck fell 1 point short of victory. Buck is a true conservative. His opponent told KUNC radio, “People don't want to eliminate government, and they don't want big government. They want an efficient, effective government that works hard for them or gets out of the way." Then why in God's green earth would they elect you, Senator Bennet one who walks in lock step with that terrible triumvirate Soetoro/Obama-Pelosi-Reid?
Oklahoma.Oklahomans had a ballot issue banning any form of Sharia Law or International Law being recognized in their state. It passed with 70% of the vote!. Thank you, Oklahoma! That ballot should be replicated across America. This is not Islamofascism, it Americanism!
The Republicans also captured the Governorship. More importantly they dismissed the incorrigible and radical Congressman Alan Grayson and elected a Daniel Webster, literally and figuratively. They also elected a fine black conservative former military officer and conservative Allen West for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Even the extremely liberal Huffington Post acknowledged that, “Political newcomer Steve Southerland, a funeral director from Panama City, rode a wave of tea party enthusiasm and hammered (Alan) Boyd for supporting President Barack Obama's health care overhaul and stimulus program.”
This election was a second chance given to
