Republican Party’s Future is Bright

We’ve heard this 2012 victory speech before. President Barack Obama is promising bipartisanship is his second term. Sounds like his victory speech in 2008. If President Obama fails in a second term like he did in the first term, it is the end of the Democratic Party, as we know it. Now all Obama supporters are stuck defending these policies. I wonder how long it will take until they stop blaming President George W. Bush. Let the countdown begin.

It’s our generation that is going to be severely affected by another term of President Obama. You may not realize it now, a month from now, or even four years from now, but I hope you will eventually. With that said, I also hope supporters of President Obama get what they voted for.

Unemployment today is a pathetic 7.9 percent. 53 percent of college graduates cannot find jobs or work in their field of study. In the next four years, the debt will rise another $4 trillion to a total of $20 trillion. As a result, our national credit rating will be downgraded. Small businesses will continue to close. Gas prices will continue to increase to record levels. We will see more taxation, more regulation, and less freedom and opportunity. Healthcare premiums will continue to increase, and the freest nation on earth will now have socialized medicine, and there is no other country to run to. The number of Americans on welfare will continue to increase. Like the last four years, we will see low economic growth, more inflation, and more uncertainty. Finally, we will see more unrest in the Middle East, and an utter failure of the handling of the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya, as more information unfolds. America might never be the same.

America is becoming a welfare state. But America is all about freedom, not free stuff. The 2012 election was a clear choice between a limited government, free market, self-determination approach, versus a larger government, less freedom, socialized, declining incentive, welfare approach. It’s going to be a very tough climb ahead to get America back on the right track.

On the other hand, the future of the Republican Party is very bright. First, with Republicans controlling of the House of Representatives, many of Obama’s “plans” of a second term will be restrained. Once ObamaCare is fully installed in a few years and we begin to realize how horrific the system will be, there will be a similar rejection of liberal policies in the 2014-midterm elections, like in the 2010-midterm elections. At that point, it could be the “beginning of the end” of the Democratic Party. It’s possible that we could see only Republican victories beginning in 2014 and for generations to come.

I hope Obama’s second term is not full of rhetoric, blame, and pettiness because our country faces big problems and we deserve better than being told that this is still President Bush’s fault. Blaming others will never solve our problems. After all whom can President Obama blame for the failed economy this term, beside himself? Presidents win reelection by being bigger and bigger, not smaller and smaller. But Obama won by being smaller and smaller, offering attack after attack. The Obama campaign staff should be embarrassed they ran a campaign on ghastly attacks on a decent and inspirational man, Gov. Mitt Romney. This is the future of winning presidential campaigns? I say we run on patriotism, not revenge of the challenger.

Therefore, do not be afraid to stand up for what you believe in. We are a divided nation, becoming even more divided. But if things are not what you expected, we can make a change by making our voices heard. Past generations have fought for the freedom America brings. Now it is up to our generation to protect and preserve it.
