Shift in politics is a win for America

At last, there may still be some hope for America.

All had seemed to be lost with the election of the most liberal Democratic controlled Congress that this county has ever witnessed.

This Democrat majority has been a rubber stamp for this President and the outrageous policies of this administration, with no respect for what the majority of Americans want.

Most people who would have made bets six weeks ago on an election to fill the seat of one of the most liberal senators would have lost, yet American won! Smile Mary Jo!

Americans not only win by the election of any new party member but by the election of the person most likely to represent the people of their state.

This Massachusetts senate election proves that moderate, independent thinking people of all parties have the real power in elections, not the extreme left or right wings.

(Maybe moderates in Louisiana and Mississippi could learn a lesson from our northern neighbors on the importance of a good turnout at election time.)

Large turnouts scare bad politicians.

Less than 24 hours after this election, I was already hearing talk of Democrats wanting to reach across the aisle to talk to Republicans.

I want all politicians to wake up, reach across the aisle, and listen to American citizens.

There was a story told of how Jesus fed the multitude with five loaves of bread and two fish.

If President Obama and the Democrats think they can give health care to all Americans with no new taxes or higher insurance premiums, I would suggest that they test their theory by walking on water first. This smells a little “fishy” to me too!

I like the statement that Massachusetts Senator-elect Brown made.

This seat belongs to the people, not the politician, not the party.

Our own Mary might need to be reminded of this before her next election! No smiles now at MSNBC.
