Tuesday night's election was the end of a long-fought battle. Many of us in rural America had no idea the outcome would turn out the way it did.
We figured given the economy, global tensions, debt, deficit, unemployment and gas prices there was no way Obama could possibly be re-elected.
We were wrong. The blame games of our loss have already started; our candidate was too conservative, our candidate was too liberal, our candidate was too successful, our candidate was too nice, our candidate was too Mormon. For every disgruntled voter there is a different reason why we lost the "most important election of our lifetime." Whether all or none of these reasons is true, the fact still remains that we have Barack Hussein Obama as the leader of the free world for four more years.
I know many of you would like to find a place to hide for the next four years hoping that it will all go away, but we all know that things are only going to get worse. There will be more debt, more deficits and much more government to deal with before this president leaves office. In other words, there will be a huge mess that we will need to clean up. The midterm election, in two years, will be our next chance to right some of the wrongs that will have already taken place and repair damage that will be done in the next two years. We cannot give up and we cannot surrender.This country has faced and overcome many challenges in the past including civil war, depressions, nuclear destruction and many more. Right now the dollar is collapsing, the debt is unsustainable and we are on the path of many failing European economies, but this is not the time to roll over and give up. This is when we need to dig our heels in and overcome the forces of a corrupt mainstream media, an uninformed electorate and power-hungry government bureaucrats that are shredding the Constitution.
How do we do this you ask? We start local — school boards, town councils, political party leadership, etc. All politics are local and we need to begin pushing against the bureaucracies and their unfunded mandates that are destroying our way of life and our country. Don't give up; even though we will be paying the price for this election for many years there is still hope and we can make America what our Founding Fathers had envisioned.
