Certainly, a time for conservative America to shiver at the thought of having an unaccountable Barack Obama for four more years. Conservatives have been contemplating what is coming. Concern over the extermination of capitalism and free market principles. An economy at peril with stifling regulation on job creators. The looming implementation of Obamacare. A spiraling national debt. The perilous challenges upon the Constitution. All are valid concerns and all will bare scrutiny in the times we are living.
The American electorate has reaffirmed a path to the ideology of the left. They have entrusted a man with an obsessive ideology. He has shown his deftness and ability to avoid Congress in order to evolve government power towards a crony, socialist state. Obama will spread his big government tentacles into more and more invasive parts of our lives. His culture of dependency will know no bounds. The left has adorned their man.
What are we conservatives to do after this election defeat? We did lose the election, but not our principles. Our conservative principles fuel our Republic and are the backbone of the Constitution. We must articulate our message, hold those in office accountable, and work to back conservative candidates at all levels of government. We must stay engaged and vocal to assure America is aware of the left's actions.
Finally, there is another opportunity for conservative strength in 2014. On the federal level, our goal must be to take control of the U.S. Senate in 2014. The Senate can serve as a conservative firewall to prevent far left confirmations to the Supreme Court, further implementation of Obamacare, and to support Congress' effort to reign in spending. In 2014, there are 33 Senate seats up for election. Twenty of these seats are held by Democrats. With most of the Democrat Senators up for election in the South and Midwest, there will be plenty of opportunities to reclaim control of the Senate.
