Congratulations to the GOP for their tremendous win last night November 2, 2010. Sixty seats in the House of Representatives are now in Conservative/Republican hands, possibly more once all the votes are counted, and the gap between the Dems and the GOP in the Senate has been significantly narrowed. Now that the GOP has the House in their hands I have this to say: DON'T SCREW IT UP! Don't make the same mistakes you made from 1994 to 2006. And above all, DO NOT "GO ALONG TO GET ALONG" WITH THE OBAMANATION OR ANY OTHER DEMOCRAT!(Progressive) The message is this: No Retreat, No Surrender, No Compromise. We did not elect you to compromise with the enemy, or go along to get along with the enemy. John Boehner has already talked about repealing Obamacare, which is a step in the right direction. I know, I know, the Conservatives do not have the votes to override an Obama veto, but they can keep proposing the legislation, and keep casting Obama in a very bad light as he keeps vetoing it, and going against the will of the American people. Also, since the House controls the government's purse strings, they can also de-fund Obamacare along with any other program, depending on who's in charge of the Ways and Means Committee. Another item is making the Bush tax cuts permanent, which is another great idea. The bottom line (God I hate that phrase!) is this: To all Republicans who were elected last night, We The People are sick and tired of being told it is our "patriotic duty" to pay tribute (taxes) to an increasingly intrusive federal government, we are sick and tired of being told that we're racists because we want to keep our borders secure, we are sick of being told that we're stupid when we say we don't want the government running healthcare, we are fed up with being told that we don't know what's good for us when we say we don't want the government running our schools, we are sick of hearing true patriotism being called "jingoism,"
we are tired of our values being impugned, and our way of life being blamed for "global warming." Compromising, backing down, going along to get along are not options this time around, for if you do any or all of those things, there may not be a Republican party in 2012. Like the title says: Congrats Republicans, DON'T SCREW IT UP!
