I know that I’m not the brightest bulb in the pack.  But even I figured out that the win in Massachusetts had nothing to do with the Republican national committee, radio and TV talk shows, or the temperature on the moon.   It didn’t even have much to do with Scott Brown or Martha Coakley.  It was all about the current administration and the Congress’s non-stop spending and arrogance toward the American people. 

Brown couldn’t have run a much better campaign while Coakley’s couldn’t have been much worse.  That is probably what put it over the top for Brown.  The truth is even a close win in a state that commonly used to seeing sixty and seventy percent of the vote go to the Democrat candidates should be putting a lot of politicians on notice. 

I think the Democrats aren’t the only ones with something to fear.  There is a lot of anger out there toward the R.I.N.Os as well.  They may have seen the light a little quicker than the Democrats and stuck with the herd on this “health-care” crap.  They have to remember that they fell down on stimulus and people just don’t trust them.  I think many of them are toast.

We, and I mean the people, have an opportunity like no other to clean house (literally) and elect some honest and courageous people to the Congress in November.  I believe there are two things we can’t do:

1)      Rest on our laurels.  Don’t say, “We showed you!”, and leave it at that.  We have a lot of work to do.

2)      Start a third party.  This will only ensure the Democrats stay in power forever.

There are a few things I believe that we must do:

1)      Tell your friends to get involved in politics.  If not too many people do we get hoodwinked as we did with Obama.  If people had been aware what Obama and the rest were doing we wouldn’t be in this mess.

2)      Work to elect ethical, honest people to Congress. (Democrat and Republican)

3)      Encourage these new people to work with others in Congress to come up with conservative answers to our problems.

4)      End their political careers quickly if they don’t behave.

We can work together to make a better country, not a new one.
