Tough 4 years Ahead

We lost, we lost bad. The next 4 years will see the expansion of the liberal agenda with a president who will face no consequences. The next 4 years will be a challenge, that's for sure. Our military will decrease, our global clout will become a joke, the looming fiscal cliff of tax hikes and spending cuts scheduled to hit in January will hit and the leftists hold all the cards they will then re-instate the bush tax cuts for the lower class, the rich will suffer and leave or lose their cash. Romney may have asked the left to take on the slogan, "people above politics" however they will take this as a moment to pursue their socialist ideals. The GOP is in dissaray not really conservative outside of a few economical issues, the large states of CA and OH turning near definite Blue, CA is a lost cause and all 55 electoral votes and Ohio is becoming harder and harder to win. The popular vote was close but the electoral map just say's so what, Obama got 19,000,000 FEWER VOTES than in 2008, and his winning margin in most states was less than in 2008! Not only is there no mandate, but Obama should assess this election for what it was: a narrow victory that should cause him to reach-out to the GOP more aggressively than he did over the past four years. Otherwise, gridlock.

The GOP had infighting and will likely continue to do so, organization was a joke and the party was incapable of responding to a supposed war on women. They continue to lose minorities and it's becoming increasingly clear America is polarizing between the give me and the success through individual effort crowd.

On the bright side, When all the ballots are counted, Republicans could have as many as 32 governorships -- a number the party has not achieved since the 1990s.

We need to convince the minority population that hard work matters and the females that a life is a life but if you consider yourselves equals than vote on something other than your lesbian co-workers ideals on abortion.

Grit, 4 long years of grit and bone await us, take it as a moment to work harder and believe in your ideals Stronger than ever before! Learn to communicate to the uneducated, to see to it that they aren't lost, distinguish yourself from the senoir republican who believe in government and is by all means a RHINO! You are the Future OR this nation is lost and there is no future, no hope, nothing to strive for. This is a challenge that we have become divided amongst ourselves that we need to go back to our roots and cast out the senoir rhino's that we need to give the people what the Want! Individual rights and liberties; Increase the speed limit, get rid of the death tax, defend guns like never before, get rid of big brother, clean up our schools, and above all else be CLEAR about it.

Good luck on your 4 year journey that awaits you.
