Last night Republicans took control of the House and made major gains in the Senate. As a Conservative I am very thrilled by this , but I also remain very guarded in my optimism for our country . We as the people who voted these people in need to not let them off the hook just because we voted them in, we need to hold them accountable just as we did the people we just voted out or we will not fix the issues that we need to fix to get our country back on track.
We didn't put into office to blame the democrats either, we want to move forward and see improvement in our country, we don't want to hear that the previous administration left us with too many issues that we can't expect change over night. None of us expect that , we do expect things to continually get better . I am sick of hearing from our current leaders that the Bush Administration left us with such a mess that it is going to take some time to fix . The fact of the matter is that the those same leaders also contributed to the issues because the democrats had control of the House for the last two years of the Bush Administration and along with Bush contributed to the issues. We now have control of the house and we need to put forth our ideas to help improve our country . Yes the President will stand in our way and will do what he can to prevent us from furthering our agenda, but history will show that if the country is not doing well , he will not get re-elected. Bill Clinton learned to meet us half way and got re-elected, if Obama is smart he will do the same.
We do not have enough power yet to undo everything that has been done , so do what we can right now within our power to make our country better. This means that health care needs to be put on the back burner for the moment and we need to create legislation that will get our economy moving again and in turn create jobs . We need to get people back to work and grow our country again.
Congratulations to the GOP,we are counting on you to come through on your campaign promises! Good luck!
