ELECTION DAY ...
It is here. Election Day. The day we've been building up to for quite some time. This is an election that has given momentum and legitimacy to an entire new movement out there - the Tea Party. Think about this: It could easily be argued that this election has been more about the Tea Parties than it has about Republicans and Democrats.
OK ... so we go out and vote today. Get a nap. Watch the election returns tonight. Get up early to see if we can figure out what happened in Washington state ... and then ...... what?
I'm going to pass away a few hours today flapping my gums in an attempt to be mildly entertaining. That is, after all, why you listen to me. Right? Since I've already voted (Rubio - Scott) I'll have lunch with friends, hit a few balls on the range, then sit back for a long evening.
* I have a few immediate hopes for this election.
* I hope that Nancy Pelosi doesn't let the door hit her on the way out.
* I hope that Harry Reid has a good set of movers hired and ready to clean out his office.
* I hope that Marco Rubio lives up to his potential in the Senate and beyond. I hope that Florida elects a governor who was one of the biggest jobs creators in the country, rather than a person who believes that "Barack Obama has all the answers for America and for Florida."
* I hope that FairTax candidates around the country are willing and able to continue their fight in Washington.
But most importantly, and I truly mean this, I hope that the voters stay engaged. You must. Just chasing a herd of predators out of your pasture isn't going to finish the job. Is it possible that this is the time and you are the Americans upon whom the responsibility of saving our republic has fallen? I hope that after today we have MORE people tuning in to talk radio than tuning out. Not just for my own personal gain .. although there is nothing wrong with that .. but because I hope they are willing to do what it takes and stay informed and then I hope that they remain engaged with their representatives in Washington. Don't blame your representatives after they've made a mistake ... work with them before bad legislation gets passed or good legislation ignored. THAT is going to be the hard part. I hope you are ready to work for it.
