For the Record

I am alive. I went to bed at 5:30 a.m. on November 8th and woke up at 7:30 a.m., 1.5 hours later. I then went back to bed at midnight. Now I intend to crash again.

Long day yesterday. Not great, but not awful — a return to what was the natural order of my childhood with Dems in Congress and the GOP in the White House.

The GOP lost about what is an average loss in the 6th year of a Presidency. Mostly liberal Republicans lost.

Now we need Mike Pence and John Shadegg to lead in the House. The Senate GOP will be secure with Mitch McConnell in charge. He’s awesome.

    Don’t allow Newt Gingrich to get by with criticizing the current Republicans. His voting record on immigration got us where we are today. Now we have to listen to the liberal media nonstop about the Democrat Revolution. Do not fall for Newt’s bs again! Newt made the rounds thinking that he will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes, and trust me the voters in the Mid-west and the South-west are not stupid!

  • “Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is religion and morality alone, which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure than they have it now, they may change their rulers and the forms of government, but they will not obtain a lasting liberty.” John Adams quote

  • Erick and others reading this informative blog: Tomorrow morning at 11:00, there will be a Veterans Memorial Service at Snows Funeral Home on Pio Nono. Please try to make time to attend this service tomorrow to show your support for our fallen heroes, and to let those still serving know that power may have shifted in DC, but they still have our support. We must never forget that freedom is not free.
