Although this past week’s elections were good for Republicans; it has yet to be determined if they were also good for Americans?
Obviously, anything that slows down the defiantly-tyrannical acts of the Obama regime is a good thing. Moreover, any result that removes the majority leadership role from Harry Reid is good for the country as well.
What remains to be seen is if the new GOP majority in the Senate and the increased majority in the House will choose to act in the interests of the predominantly-conservative voters who swept them into power.
This election was a mandate, not for any particular policy or course of action; it was, however, a mandate to stop the policies of Barack Obama.
If this election is actually going to be good for the country, then Republicans must not think they need to work with the president on issues such as illegal immigration.
America already has more than enough laws on immigration to deal with the border issues we currently face; Obama just doesn’t enforce any of them.
What would make them think that Obama would enforce any new immigration statutes with any more zeal than he does with the ones already in place?
In addition, it’s clear to everyone with more than a double-digit I.Q that Obama doesn’t want to stem the flow of illegals into this country. He wants to give them amnesty, a course of action that will only serve to increase the number of illegal aliens flooding across our borders.
Another thing I hope the GOP will realize is that there is nothing overseas that calls for any form of US military intervention. Except for an all-out attack on the State of Israel, there is nothing outside our borders that calls for putting more troops on the ground.
Perhaps it is somewhat an oversimplification of the facts, but it is nearly impossible to determine the players in the Middle East. Israel is our friend. But everybody else could be considered hostile and dangerous.
And the nations we arm now will later be using those same arms against us.
The Republicans shouldn’t let the president determine the agenda.
They should press forward with legislation that will increase exploration, drilling, research, and refinement of oil and natural gas. The GOP should push for the Keystone Pipeline, something that will be good for America and create more jobs across the nation.
And by the way, Little Harry Reid determined the rules that the Senate would follow in all matters of legislation and confirmation of presidential appointees. The Republicans are fools if they don’t aggressively play by those same set of rules.
Reid violated the long-standing rules of the Senate in order to pass Obamacare.
Republicans should exercise the simple power of their electoral majority to defund it.
Of course there are many other things Republicans ought to do, in order to reverse the country’s downward spiral.
However, none of them are things that will make Obama happy.
But most of all, if the GOP truly cares about the country, they will do whatever it takes, up to and including impeachment, if Obama continues trying to do an end-run around the legislative process and seeks to continue his ham-handed rule by executive order.
This election was not a call to play nice with Obama.
It was a call to stop him.
