The morning after…
Woke up this morning with a huge sigh of relief. The elections are over and now we can start trying to return things to the way they should be.
It should go without saying that I am pretty happy with the results of the election. The results are about what I expected numerically, and in the individual races also. I admit Rand Paul did better than I thought he would, but Angle and O’Donnell ended just like I expected. Now we need to actually accomplish something – My suggestion is simple start rolling back regulations issued by executive agencies such as the EPA, fix the tax code and fix immigration. Those are probably the only two things that have any hope of being accomplished with the balance of power as it will exist come January and in reality they go a long way towards pushing the economy towards recovery.
A solution to the problem of the 17th amendment? I don’t really think so.
The overwhelming repudiation of the Obama administration’s failing policies sends a clear message to the world that the American people will not accept the decline of the world’s most powerful nation. Now the hard part begins, and a very top priority for the new Congress must be reigning in the ballooning national debt, which the Congressional Budget Office predicts could rise to 87 percent of GDP by 2020, 109 percent by 2025, and 185 percent of GDP by 2035.
I don’t know if it really counts as a decline when you have been purposely running down the slope.
