Something to keep in mind as we lick our wounds - did the Democrats give up when they lost it all in 2000 and 2004? Nope, and we can't, either. The damage Obama and the Democrats have done and will continue to do is going to take a long time to repair, and it's not going to be done if we despair and say "Why bother?" I know it's tempting when you see so much of the population apparently approving of such a bad man and bad President. It is what it is. We have to do what we can to educate and inform. The media certainly isn't going to do it, so it's up to us. We've had a couple of days to grieve for our country, now let's pick it up and do what's needed.
It's not easy "getting over it." If we can't beat a candidate with as bad a record as Obama has, it's hard to see how we can ever be in the majority again. But...a pessimistic outlook isn't going to do any good. We have to pray hard and work hard.
***I think one thing we will have to do is figure out how to educate the massive number of people who rely in the evening news for their information. They don't know anything about Benghazi, barely anything about Fast and Furious, I could go on and on. The ignorance I encounter when I try to educate some of my friends and family is just amazing. If you know people like that and they have an email address, I would suggest forwarding Fox News updates, Town Hall columns, anything that is good information that they won't get via their newspapers or CBS. True, many won't bother to click through because they like their little liberal bubbles, but some will. I would only forward very relevant articles and videos, don't overwhelm them or they'll just turn you off completely. This is something I'm committed to start doing immediately. Same with Facebook. Rather than bombard people with information overload, I plan to only post that which I think is very important that I know their liberal sources aren't going to cover. That's one place to start.
***And it starts - Harry Reid moves to limit GOP filibusters.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday that he will try to push through a change to Senate rules that would limit the GOP’s ability to filibuster bills.
Speaking in the wake of Tuesday’s election, which boosted Senate Democrats’ numbers slightly, Mr. Reid said he won’t end filibusters altogether but that the rules need to change so that the minority party cannot use the legislative blocking tool as often.
Read the whole thing, it's a good one.
ABOUT GROWING OLD
1) Growing up is mandatory; growing old is optional.
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there.
4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.
