Here’s the new Republican reality as detailed in a Mission Statement by GOP spokesman Rush Limbaugh:
“Individual Republican candidates won, and they won big. They won in a wave landslide running against Obamacare. The national Republican brand or image didn’t say a word, which makes the mandate that they have all the more incredible. It is rare that a political party running for office in a midterm election, not standing for anything, ends up with a mandate. And they have one. And it is the biggest, and perhaps the most important mandate a political party has had in the recent era. And it is very simple what that mandate is. It is to stop Barack Obama. It is to stop the Democrat Party. There is no other reason why Republicans were elected yesterday.”
Republicans were not elected to govern. How can you govern with a president that disobeys the constitution? How can you govern with a president that is demonstrably lawless when he thinks he has to be? The Republican Party was not elected to fix a broken system and to make it work. The Republican Party was not elected to compromise. The Republican Party was not elected to sit down and work together with the democrats. The Republican Party was not elected to slow down the speed the country is headed to the cliff, and go over it slowly. The Republican Party was elected to stop before we get to the cliff. And that’s the mandate.
The reason for the electoral mandate is simple: Immediately after Obama was first elected in 2008, the US economy was in a shambles, bordering on depression, even collapse. Since then, and IN SPITE of Democrat opposition, the Republicans in Congress have managed to get the economy growing at a robust 3.5 percent rate! Because of Republicans, deficits have been cut in half! The stock market is at record levels! The price of gas is less than three bucks a gallon! Ten million more Americans now have health insurance! Unemployment is under six percent for the first time since Obama was elected! There’s only one case of Ebola in the United States, and the victim is on the road to full recovery!
Still, victorious Republicans have serious issues with Obama. As Matt Drudge pointed out in a post-electoral tweet, “The reality is, Obama is going to do whatever he wants anyway. He will not be stopped, and I doubt very highly Republicans will arrest him.”
Maybe Limbaugh’s notion is the best one after all, all things considered. Maybe the sole mission remains to simply stop Obama and the Democrat traitors dead in their tracks and in the process kill such anti-American and unconstitutional communist-socialist nonsense as minimum wage, Social Security, Medicare, corporate taxes, welfare handouts to lazy bums, birth control, immigration reform . . . the Obama subterfuge and nation-destroy agenda list is endless.
Better we stop all this “We the people” horse hockey and work instead toward what REALLY counts, toward what will make America GREAT once again !! Like ever-higher corporate profits! Like tax reform ! YES ! Reaganomics reborn !! Lower taxes on the top 1% ! Halt government spending on everything but war ! Stop the EPA and tree-huggers everywhere from interfering with money-making pipelines, coal mines, and drill rigs ! Turn over ownership of public lands to the Koch Brothers ! YEAH !!.
America’s New Dawn has arrived!! (detailed below)
The Morning Sun Illuminates the New Republican America
In the Words of Emily Dickinson,
A Summation of the Newly-Elected American Reality
After great pain, a formal feeling comes —
The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Tombs —
The stiff Heart questions was it He, that bore,
And Yesterday, or Centuries before?
The Feet, mechanical, go round —
Of Ground, or Air, or Ought —
A Wooden way
A Quartz contentment, like a stone —
This is the Hour of Lead —
Remembered, if outlived,
As Freezing persons, recollect the Snow —
First — Chill — then Stupor — then the letting go –
!! U.S.A. !!
