Republicans must return to the party of lower taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility, strong national defense, and states' rights.
The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We're spending trillions that we don't have. This could lead to hyper inflation, depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity. The media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi a pass because they love their agenda. But eventually the bill will come due and people will realize the huge bailouts didn't work, nor will the stimulus package. These were trillion-dollar payoffs to Obama's allies, unions and the Congress to placate the left, so he can get support for Federal government control of ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, & NATIONAL HEALTH CARE.
Obama is a bad joke. He is more of a cult leader than a President. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed. Fear and panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, and the war was grinding on indefinitely without a clear outcome. The people were in pain, and the mantra of "change" caused people to act emotionally. Any Democrat would have won this election. The only surprise was the result being as close as it was.
In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be swept back into power. If it's under 8%, the Dems continue to roll. If it's between 8-10%, it'll be a dogfight. 2012 will be all about the economy.
