Now That It's Over
Well, it might not be over; there are still concerns about Obama's citizenship. That could be a real Constitutional crisis. Barring that though, it's pretty much a done deal.
Now what? Well, for one thing, I think this is a repudiation of Bush and his false conservatism which McCain goes along with except that McCain is even more liberal. Maybe now, the GOP will start putting more Reagan like candidates up there. More conservative. Obviously when the GOP runs a liberal, the country moves to the left.
Really though, we're getting the President we deserve. We're getting more liberalism, lots of scandals, more government interference in our lives, more government interference in the markets and in general, a lot less freedom. Make no mistake, we'd have these things with McCain too (except maybe the scandals) but lots more government and a lot less liberty.
We can look for things like an attempt at The Fairness Doctrine being restored, possibly slavery reparations, a civilian national security force (i.e. neighborhood spies) national health care, more money poured down the black hole of education, etc. The list goes on and on and on.
We did it ourselves.
