The Rabid Conservative

Republicans Go Rabid and Clean House

And as I heard, Nancy Pelosi is out of a job…

When I started TRC in a big way, it was a November night like this one and Barack Obama had just won the presidency on his silly “hope and change” referendum.  So here I am, two years later, and after a general hiatus for about six months (no questions, please), and watching the news again, seeing the Dems lose the House after vehemently taking it away from the GOP in 2006.

But what is tonight really about?  I’ve heard the conservative pundits out there say it’s a “rejection of Obamacare” or “rejection of liberalism”, or “rejection of Democrats.  But while these reasons are partially true, what is also true is that tonight’s stunning GOP win was that it’s about Americans in droves, coming out to say that they are tired of not being heard by Washington and they want a different direction for the economy and the Country in general.

Americans have spoken, but the message isn’t, “Dems are out; we like elephants.”  No, tonight’s message is, “you better start listening to us or we WILL fire you.”

Right now, most Americans are incensed towards both parties because both parties have demonstrated their real constituency are their special interest groups, and none of those groups are “The People of the United States”.

The Dems have five weeks left to call the shots and try to railroad their crazy policies through the system.  But come January, it will be on the GOP to govern as they campaign.  More than likely, the GOP will try to get some things done – passing a conservative budget, repealing ObamaCare, or some other thing.  It will slide through the House, get caught up in a hung Senate, only to get vetoed by President Obama.  That’s what we have for the next two years…and it’s just alright.  I think people are tired of having their country fundamentally changed.

Obama said today, “"Are we taking the steps now to move us in the right direction, or are going to go back to the policies that got us into that mess in the first place?”.   Hopefully neither.  Every conservative knows that George Bush was not a fiscal conservative and the GOP congress of the time got drunk off their own spending.  The Dems played that counter card against spending in 2006, but never delivered on their promise.  So, a new class of congressional leaders are on their way in.  Folks, keep them accountable.

As for Pelosi, the word on the street is that her Queen-Bee-ness is going to take her pantsuits and leave the Capitol, heading back for the Napa Valley to grow grapes and drown out her sorrow in a glass of red wine.  Break out the good stuff, Nancy-kins.  It tastes better going down.

Speaking of going down, that’s what the Dems are doing right now.  As Obama said a couple years ago, “change is on the way.”

  1. Good post. It is interesting how many Republicans fail to understand the true message that voters are sending.

  2. Great win for the American people! When you look at results from Mass and California, are the poster children for “what not to do” and the voters of these two states get what they deserve, bankruptcy.

  3. Welcome back! There is no doubt the people took charge this election. But what worries me is I am already hearing “the dems” screaming “What are you going to cut?”. This is going to be a true test to see just how deep into sociolism we have become. This has not been about party lines(for the rational voters) but more against socialism and for conservatism. But I can see the welfare class ruining this great nation because they have been using the system for free income insread of assistance.They will use guilt to keep things as it is. The people are going to have to dig their heels in and stay firm.

    • Right now, those in government have only shown that they are willing to cut *other* people’s connection to the government spigot. This is why there is no real change as of yet. Until those in power come to terms with limiting government and actually encouraging people to do for themselves and rely on Divine Providence as the Declaration of Independence says, we’re never going to get anywhere as a society.
