The reelection of Barack Obama as President of the United States is certainly a very disparaging and devastating outcome. It is one that I was very afraid of seeing, and one that was deeply damaging to my faith in the American people and the American political system. I have, in fact, reevaluated my commitment to this blog as a result of this election.
However, as you – my faithful readers – have reminded me, now is the last time to give up. No matter how difficult it gets, we must continue to fight and fight and fight some more to preserve this nation and its continued status as the freest nation on the earth. Thoughts of giving up must become thoughts of perseverance. This election shakes my faith in American politics, and it makes me feel like we – as common-sense conservatives – cannot be heard. But, with enough work and with your support, we can be heard, and I want to be that voice for you. So we will persevere and fight on.
In the coming months, this blog will focus less upon the fine points of American politics and more upon the big ideas that we need to move this country forward. With such a polarized system in Washington, we need more of the kind of basic, common-sense ideas that can cut through the endless red tape and actually fix things.
Thank you, and let’s move on together. Let’s defy the odds.
