November 2, 2010 was a great day for all conservatives, but especially for conservative women. I am humbled that God gave me the gift of allowing me to be born in the greatest country in the world. I've always felt this way, no matter who's the president or what direction the political winds happen to be blowing, but there are some days that make me prouder than others, and yesterday was just that kind of day.
We're hearing all sorts of commentary today. Interestingly, many on the left have toned it down a notch and are now doing the "bi-partisan" speech--you know, the thing they've absolutely refused to discuss these last two years because they won the '08 election. They've had two years at the wheel, and to borrow from President Obama's often repeated example, they've driven that car right into the ditch, whining all the way when they couldn't drag a Republican or two with them. I've been very pleased that they didn't want bi-partisanship. When it comes to the liberal agenda, there's no middle ground. There's right and there's wrong, and socialism is dead wrong. It's never worked in the history of the world, and just because we're the greatest country in the world doesn't mean it's going to magically start working now.
There's another group that proved something pretty sad yesterday. Feminism benefited, I suppose--every race where the opponent called his female competitor a bitch or a whore won. I guess Democrats like the abuse their party has dished out these past two election cycles, so the next two years may get even more interesting than the last two have been. I have to admit I shed a few tears yesterday as I watched great conservative women like Michelle Bachmann's numbers come in, and listened to her hand Chris Matthews his tail as he couldn't hold back his disdain for her:
That, my friends, is a great conservative woman. Had Christine O'Donnell had the full support of the GOP, I have no doubt she would have carried Delaware. She ran an incredible race. But don't be discouraged by the losses we sustained yesterday. At this moment, we've gained 63 seats. That hasn't been done since the days of Hoover, and the success cannot be overstated. Conservatism won yesterday, and this is just the beginning. Today begins the push for 2012. I know, I know! We're sick to death of elections...but never before in the history of our nation has freedom been threatened like it has been with Barack Hussein Obama at the wheel. We must begin NOW to educate those voters who didn't think it necessary to show up at the polls yesterday. Those moms who don't pay enough attention to care about their children's future. Ignorance is no longer an excuse, and if you're reading this blog, you're probably already well enough informed to be able to educate those in your circle of friends and family about the principles our founding fathers fought and died for. If you aren't, stay tuned. We're going to do that here.
Meanwhile, give yourselves a big pat on the back. Conservative women won big yesterday, and our own Sarah Palin was a vital part of that victory. It's going to be exciting to be a part of this movement in the coming weeks, months, and years. We cannot tire, we cannot give up...the fight for our future must continue, and it continues today.
God bless each and every one of you who exercised your right to vote yesterday, and may God continue to richly bless this precious country we're fortunate enough to live in.
