Breaking: GOP Wins US Senate Seats

The GOP has won the majority of seats in the US Senate, winning in West Virginia, Montana, South Dakota, Colorado, Arkansas, and Iowa that Democrats previously held as the political majority. Wisconsin, who became an Obama state in 2008 and 2012, is going to be a close win for Governor Scott Walker if the final results indicate he won. Senator Mitch McConnell will become the new Senate Majority Leader.
Let us, with hope of the beginning of true reformation, especially in the Congress, uses its majority wisely.

For example, Governor Walker did what he stated in his original campaign for governor of Wisconsin, but failed to repair the damage done to equal rights and the outrageous 38% hike in state government fees. Governor Doyle signed a bill that became legislation against property rights that mandated that Wisconsin restaurants, bars, pubs, motels and hotels could not allow their customers to smoke tobacco products on their premises (whether owners want them to or not, or set up designated smoking/nonsmoking areas) – clearly transgression against freedom of choice for business owners and their property rights. Despite requests that Walker convince the state assembly to repeal that unconstitutional law – it was never accomplished. But Walker and GOP did accomplish passing the conceal-carry permit law and repealing the ridiculous law that forbade archery hunters to use crossbows. In addition, Walker and company provided a better atmosphere for businesses, which in turn has boosted the economy and employment status of the state of Wisconsin. Scott Walker is also on a list for possible candidates for presidential election 2016.
In Washington DC … we will now see if Obama will use his unconstitutional, declared “executive powers” to enact unconstitutional mandates, and executive orders that override immigration laws and policies.
The wave of hope for the return of the constitutional republic is here, once again, many hope the GOP will not blow it like they did in previous periods of majority rule. The People will once again see a wave of negative reporting and accusations, not seen against Obama and cohorts, begin as the media exercises its political bias and manipulating.
This Friday, President Obama is supposed to meet  with leadership from the House and Senate at the White House, some believing that Obama is actually going to start engaging with Congress on matters of import. Too little, too late, Mr. President.
And what does the Democrats, like Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina say about their political club's loss? It all has to do with a lot of people oppose President Obama out of racism.
Keith Koffler wrote:
Let’s be clear about a couple of things. Yes, there are a certain number of people who oppose Obama out of racism. But there is no proof this is a pervasive problem – that it’s “a lot of people.” To the contrary, the perfervid, [sic] even feverish support among among those on the right for a host of charismatic and accomplished black conservative leaders suggests racism does not animate Republicans. To suggest that there is something inherently racist about conservatives is blasphemy coming from Democrats, the  Party that long hosted big-government Southern – and other – racists, and even had a former Ku Klux Klan member, Robert Byrd of West Virginia, as its leader in the Senate not too long ago. Byrd, whose appetite for federal pork amounted practically to an attempt to move the federal government to West Virginia, is as far from a conservative as one could get. This is not moral outrage from Mr. Clyburn and Ms. Landrieu. This is cynical get-out-the-vote politics, a desperate effort by desperate Democratic leaders to move African Americans to the polls.
One can tell when Democrats become desperate – their banter becomes more viscous than usual and least sensible.
Here is the usual Democrat tirade Clyburn showing his ignorance or lying about the ineptness of Obama …
Democrats lost, according to them, because they did not support and standby his policies; which they say was successful when statistics and facts prove differently.
As of now …
Republicans have 52 in Senate, versus 43; 30 GOP governors versus 14 (those states bankrupt and tax ridden); and 237 GOP in the House vs. 161.

Steve Delarwelle won election as Door County Sheriff. 
No Constitution Party, Socialist Party, Green Party, or Libertarian Party candidates won. The traditional two-party political monopolies continue their political reign.
An interesting observation: the majority of Democrats who won election in Wisconsin are female. Some female Republicans won against female Democrats.
And what did the infamous mouthpiece for American progressive socialism say about Scott Walker winning?
PS: Unless you want to be on their email list, Daily Beast conveniently forces those who wish to comment on their articles to register with email and password. As manipulative a media as too many these days. The same people whine about freedom of speech. Another crazy factor about the Daily Beast is that it actually accuses conservatives of being socialists!

  1. I agree. Let's hope they can use their majority to put us back on the constitutional road.
