Elections were recently held without any hitches for President and for Congress, and according to an editorial in The Wall Street Journal, the fact the elections were held in the first place is a victory for all who seek liberty, and especially for Honduras. The losers, meanwhile, are said to not only be Hugo Chavez and Manuel Zelaya, but also the nations that tried to stop the election and the Organization of American States (OAS), now considered discredited for deciding not to recognize the results of the election.
For a while, it seemed like Honduras was about to be forcibly re-entered into the darkness Zelaya tried to take Honduras into before he was deposed as President. Now, with the election having been held, and the results to be recognized by the U.S. (about time Obama did something right for a change) and other nations, Honduras may very well be on the road out of that darkness. Wonderful news, indeed.
And, in another respect, the election is another victory against Progressive forces throughout the world, as Rodan at The Blogmocracy has written. Add in the results of the gubernatorial elections in Virginia and New Jersey and the success of the banning of building minarets on Islamic mosques in Switzerland, and you have consecutive blows to the causes of Progressive forces. Most wonderful news, indeed (and in time for Christmas, no less).
