Election Wrap Up: The Results are In, Folks
Congratulations, George W. Bush, on your second term as President of the United States!
Congratulations, Mitch Daniels, in overthrowing Kernan as Governor of Indiana.
To the both of you: May you use your four years wisely and begin to practice fiscal conservatism. Don't know what that is? Here's the simple formula:
cut taxes + cut spending = economic gains
I'm thrilled with all the gains the Republicans have made in the House and Senate nationwide. We need that type of majority in Congress. I'm especially pleased that Thune took Daschle's place as Senator from South Dakota. How cool. And how blessed that eleven states overwhelming voted to make marriage between a man and a woman only by amending their state constitutions. That is great news.
On the downside, my county (Monroe County of Indiana)
went for Kerry and the local Democrats won almost every race here. What a shame. So while things might look up on a national level, locally I can expect more handouts for Planned Parenthood, slowed business growth and more laws, laws and more laws.
Note: It looks like congrats are also in order to Mike Sodrel, the Republican challenger to local Democrat Congressman Baron Hill, for whom I cannot find anything nice to say. Way to go Sodrel! Scott Tibbs, though, shares how the Hill supporters spit and shoved Sodrel supporters
at the only debate Hill would agree to. And Hill's apology for his supporters is where? Sadly, no apology has been made.
