Hello America…..is this thing on!?
Yesterday’s midterm elections proved to be one thing, scary. The idea that that Florida was just a few points away from progressive socialism rearing its ugly head, is a frightening idea to swallow. However, there is a silver lining that provides relief from the slight sting of the GOP losing the House to Pelosi and her band of misfits. That silver lining is this.
Elections oftentimes serve as a sort of wake up call. That is exactly what we experienced last night. Conservatives everywhere saw Socialism creeping on their doorsteps in places that the word has seldom been uttered.
Socialist longboarder Robert “Beto” O’Rourke came within 3 points of carrying historically red Texas. The lasting effect of this is going to be one that Progressive Liberals will not fall fond of. Republicans in Texas are now awake. They now realize that some citizens of Texas are gullible enough to fall for a longboard and a basket of empty promises. Expect rural, gun toting Texans to show up in droves in two years, when a lot more is at stake than a couple House seats.
Like Texas, Florida was also mere points away from allowing progressive socialism to shine down on the Sunshine State. If this happened, the repercussions would have been catastrophic. Florida was a stone’s throw away from having a STATE INCOME TAX. For a state that relies so heavily on retirees, an income tax would have acted as a wrecking ball to Florida’s growing economy. Luckily for Floridians, this did not happen. However, the fact that these elections were so close should be enough to wake up the sleepy GOP in Americas’ Sunshine State.
The GOP is Still Winning
The GOP did not lose last night. There were seats gained in the Senate and there were historically low seats lost in the House. The Democrats will enjoy a slight advantage in the House, but will most likely trip over each other and overplay their hand, which will lead to an actual wave in 2020, a very red one.
