I am predicting that we as a nation are going to see some great things in the 2016 Presidential election. Namely, a reversal in the decadent trend this One Nation under God, has been following since the election of Barack Obama in 2008.
The good news started this past Tuesday, when the Election Day map showed most of the United States a very patriotic shade of red. With the state of Kentucky electing a Republican Governor for the first time in more than forty years, the GOP now holds 32 out of 50 governorships. Democrats failed to take over the senate in the state of Virginia, which means that Republicans continue to have control of 30 of the 50 state legislatures. These gains are historic. We have a trifecta in 24 states, where Republicans control the house, the senate, and the governorship. What this means in real terms is that the GOP is alive and well, and at the state and local level, much stronger than its Democratic counterpart.
Over the long haul, these advances will prove as valuable to the Republican Party as having a majority in the U. S. House and Senate. In the political arena, the grassroots level is where it’s at. Most federal policy originates within the individual states; they are the laboratories where the political parties experiment with potential legislation. With the Republicans in the majority, they will be very influential in creating future federal policy that will move us back in the right direction.
In addition, most of the politicians we see on the national stage made their debut at the state level. With more Republicans serving in these positions, the GOP will have an abundance of political talent to draw from in future elections. We can already see this in action in the current presidential race. After the last few election cycles, the Democratic Party has little depth when it comes to potential candidates for the top job. You know they are scraping the bottom of the barrel when the best they have to offer is either a confirmed socialist, or a proven liar currently under FBI investigation. They just have no talent on the bench.
President Obama has been a lousy commander-in-chief, but he has proven to be an outstanding campaigner, at least for the Republican Party, which has made great gains under his administration. A tweet by Republican operative, Rory Cooper said it succinctly, “Under President Obama, Democrats have lost 900+ state legislature seats, 12 governors, 69 House seats, 13 Senate seats. That’s some legacy.”
There is a message here; Americans are not happy with the powers that be, and they are not happy with the trajectory of the country. Oh, we still have the kooks and the degenerates among us, who are comfortable with immorality and perversion, and who are more interested in a free ride than a free country. However, the “silent majority” that President Nixon spoke to in 1969 are now expressing themselves at the polls, which is the most efficient way to voice their opinion in a just and democratic society.
