Democrats’ election bloodbath will signal the start of a conservative agenda

Written By | Oct 28, 2014

WASHINGTON, October 28, 2014 — Americans are fed-up. The result of that feeling will likely be a bloodbath for Democrats in next week’s election.  The Republicans will gain control of the Senate with as many as 56 seats. Republicans will likely gain up to 20 seats in the House of Representatives and two governorships.

Americans are fed-up with the current administration and are fed-up with the too liberal policies of the Democratic Party which has been hijacked by ultra-liberal politicians led by the President. Americans are fed-up with an under-producing economy.  The recession ended more than five years ago, yet the economy has barely recovered, averaging about 2% annual growth.  Contrast this with the 4 ½% average annual growth that followed the 1981 recession. This lack of growth had resulted in little opportunity for the majority of Americans.

Americans are fed-up with economic policies which the Democratic administration claims will strengthen the middle class, but in reality help the lower classes at the expense of the middle class. Policies like an increase in the minimum wage which may benefit a few percent of the population while the rest of us pay higher prices and receive less service because the increase in wages drives up prices and reduces the number of people working.

Americans are fed-up with the less than truthful information. This started when the current Democratic administration simply was not truthful with the American public about the Affordable Care Act. The Democratic administration assured Americans that they could keep their doctor, they could keep their policy and the cost would decrease by $2,500 per year.  All were untrue.

The Democratic administration assured Americans that there was no corruption in the IRS, that the Benghazi attack was not terrorism and that Al Qaeda was no longer a threat. All of that turned out to be less than truthful.

Americans are fed –up with rosy promises that are never fulfilled and by attacks the Democratic administration has launched against people with opposing views. And most of all, Americans are fed-up with not feeling secure because the Democratic administration assures us that ISIS is not a threat and that a potential ebola problem is under control.

As a result of Americans being fed-up with Democratic party policies, it will be very difficult for Americans to vote for any candidate with the Democratic party along side of their name on the ballot. The result will be a bloodbath that propels the Republican Party to large majorities in both houses of Congress. This will be the start of a conservative agenda for America.

Congress will pass a bill that overhauls the Affordable Care Act, perhaps even repeals the law. Fed-up Americans will welcome this, so that an Obama veto will be very unpopular. Congress will pass a bill to overhaul the income tax system to reduce tax rates and make the policy fairer, simpler and far less progressive than it is now. Fed-up Americans will support this, even if the President vetoes the bill.

The Keystone pipeline application will be approved by Congress through an authorization act. Americans fed-up with high energy prices and fed-up with sending our dollars to Middle Eastern suppliers will welcome this legislation.

Even if Obama vetoes the bills and the veto is not over-ridden, the President and the Democrats will become the party of “no”. This sets the tone for the 2016 presidential election.

Republicans would however, be wise to include members of the Democratic party when formulating these bills, so that at least some Democratic Senators and members of Congress will vote for them. This would signal the end of the deeply divided Congress which really started when the Affordable care Act was passed without one Republican vote.

Get ready! Following the election bloodbath, the country will start leaning to the right.
