First, the race for President. I wasn't rooting for Mitt Romney (in fact, I proudly cast my vote for Gary Johnson), but I was horrified at the thought a majority of Americans could possibly vote for the re-election of Barack Obama. The results of 2008 made me realize there existed about 70 million idiots in America; this year's results made me realize there are about 59 million fools in America. If you haven't read Atlas Shrugged, I'd suggest you do so. I think you'll get a good idea what will be happening in the foreseeable future.
|A far better candidate than Joe Donnelly|
|Here I am with a good man & a good candidate|
My Congressman, Marlin Stutzman, was easily re-elected to a second term in Congress, finishing even better than he did in 2010. Having seen the one debate between the Congressman and his Democratic opponent, Kevin Boyd, it was crystal clear who the right choice was in the election, and that choice was Congressman Stutzman. I'm glad to see he will be representing me and everybody else here in the 3rd District for another two years.
|He came, he saw, he conquered|
There were other races outside my area where I was hoping particular candidates would win, and in some races, there were victories (Jackie Walorski in Indiana, Ted Cruz in Texas, Michele Bachmann in Minnesota, etc.) and there were defeats (Dan Bongino in Maryland, Art Robinson in Oregon, Kurt Bills in Minnesota, etc.). And in races for seats in the Indiana House, there were victories in nearby districts (Martin Carbaugh in the 81st, Dave Ober in the 82nd and Bob Morris in the 84th), so what happened Tuesday night was not totally bad news.
Tuesday was a hard night, and the day after was difficult to get through, but the fight is not over. So let's take a brief rest, regather our resources, and continue fighting the good fight.
