It would NOT have been a good thing. Why do I think that it was a blessing in disguise that John McCain and Sarah Palin lost at the polls on November 4th, 2008? This video is why:
The above video is just one example of what is happening in California and other Western States to people who went to the polls, voting their consciences, expecting to participate in American democracy. These American terrorists in the video demonstrating their “insane rage” are Democrats who lost at the ballot box. If you found it troubling to have the term “RACIST” hurled at you for voting Republican during the 2008 election, think of what would be happening now, if Republicans had won. You would need police protection, if you could find it, to walk on city streets. You would be closing down your businesses. You would be in a heap of hurt if John McCain had won. Democrats, as proved by this video and many other videos, would NEVER, ever have accepted that your vote was valid. You would have been a Messiah-killer forever, instead of just a poor pitiful and misguided Republican, as you are now.
As it is, Barack Obama is your President and 52% of America is jubilant. Those who believe in His message of Socialism and His Redistribution of wealth believe in Him, even though you do not nor do you accept Him as your Messiah. You and your side have lost, and Conservatives and Republicans have NO chance to ever regain the Presidency nor the Congress in your lifetime. After-all, Obama will be selecting future Supreme Court justices and the Congress will vote themselves two more Democrat Senators when Washington DC becomes a state.
Learn to be thankful for small favors. At least for the next four years you can probably walk the streets unmolested, unlike Californians. You can probably enjoy your family, and still go to church, unlike Mormons, Catholics and Evangelicals in the West. All of those things that you can still do, even with Barack Obama as your president, you must appreciate and be thankful for. You are now “the minority” of this country and that is the way it will be in America of 2009 and forward. We do not know what the future holds; we know only that it does not hold the America of the past that we have known and loved.
Conservatives, traditional Christians, capitalists, libertarians, classical liberals, federalists, republicans and big “R” Republicans are now all part of a minority. If you, as a minority of this new regime, refuse to go along, if you rebell, you will bleed.
