I read an interesting question on a social network status. A person wanted to know what the message to this election was. I chuckled when I read this. The election was not about TEA Party activists. It was not about Sarah Palin, or any other group of people in the spotlight lately. To believe that these people influenced anyone is to ignore the intelligence of the average American. Simply put, a lot of people decided that our government was leading us down a dangerous path.
- First, they were spending more money than anyone could possibly pay back, and promising that a small group of millionaires would be forced to foot the bill. The math did not add up, even for the simplest of voters.
- Second, the laws being passed intruded too deeply into personal lives. Today, even the President admitted that mistake.
- Third, the arrogance showed by the representatives that were passing these laws made people very nervous. I believe this was one of the complaints that many liberals had about our former administration. To show an even deeper arrogance was hypocritical, and voters noticed. Therefore, the message became a very simple one during this election;
“Not everyone wants the government to be a massive, controlling entity. Freedom is still revered by many of the American people, and this includes the freedom from an intrusive government. We want to be able to try, fail, try again, succeed, and know that we made it without help from a nanny state; and when we succeed, we do not wish to be punished by our government. Our forefathers set up the Federal Government to be a limited power that is controlled by the people, and control it we will!”
There’s your message…..get it?
Keep the faith!
