    The message was loud and clear last night, and now it's up to Obama to either be pragmatic like Clinton and admit defeat - "the era of big government is over" - or go even harder and more divisively to the left than he already is.

    I see Obama, and those that were spared the public's wrath last night, as keeping to their obvious M/O and doubling down, as terrible as that sounds, and will be for us. He doesn't care.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Anyone that bothered to check out the election maps will see a sea of red with a few blue dots all over the nation, dots that represent major metropolitian areas controlled by the Democrat Political machine that keeps people dependent and stupid.

    I have no idea what it is going to take to wake people up but as long as they continue to vote for the same ideology over and over again they are going to get the same results, total dependence on the liberal agenda

    Or he does care about the important things and not the mindless partisan stuff.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    First off, one election doesn't tell you a whole lot. If it did, the Republicans should have been dead after 2006 and 2008. What it did tell us is right now America wants to try something else, but it doesn't mean they won't want to go back either.

    Also, you are right. As long as people continue to vote for the same ideology over and over again they will get the same result, but it doesn't mean it will be dependence on the liberal agenda. We can also get this semi-conservatism as well.

    The basic difference however is that this country was built on individual wealth creation and entreprenuerial spirit, not massive dependence on the Federal Taxpayer. It wasn't built on class warfare or envy and wealth redistribution. I hope the party of "no" says a big "NO" to any further attempt to bailout failed states and poor choices made by individuals.
