Someone will be along soon to chide you for voting (in effect) for Zero, but not me. I also voted for Baldwin, in SC, a safe-bet state. Also, for the first time in my life, I did not vote for a Republican for Senate - Pandsy exemplifies my disgust, and I’m sure he gets his lever pulled plenty without a reach-around from me.
I don’t know if my vote will actually ever matter again in big elections, as I will be confining my family to “safe” states, purposely. I recognize that I prayed last night for the impossible, an electorate able to put their country/long-term, above a payday; an educated/un-indoctrinated electorate; a population where the ne’er-do-wells still had a conscious, and knew that they don’t really deserve a say while they are on the teet.
I know that I am foolish.
I will honor the memory of what a group of rabble rousers were able to accomplish 235 years ago, and what millions of men with great courage have sacrificed. As a more eloquent man that I has said, “I declare that this government is no longer a constitutional and moral form of government. I will deal with it, and I will obey its laws, and I will support it when it is defending our country from foreign and domestic enemies. I will vote in its elections and participate in its political debates. But I will never accept it. I aim at a restoration of constitutional and moral order.”
I can agree with that. I have long held that by Divine Law national leaders are one of two things. They are either a blessing to nations with contrite and GOD fearing hearts, or used as a judgement for those doing otherwise. For our drinking of the cup lesser of evils The Tab we have ran up as a nation has just come due. Clinton was a warning. Obama will be a judgement.
