Liberals and moderates will pick all the negatives to highlight from yesterday's midterm elections, and the limited government movement will be framed as a disguise for social conservative moral control and set back for civil liberties. Then they will highlight positives to build up their side. They will ask twelve times a day about the Republican plan to create jobs now that they control the House and picked up a few Senate seats. The liberals and moderates will continue the narrative that Obama must communicate better the benefits of his policies, and they will predict the national temper tantrum dies down and the Tea Party goes away when jobs and economic growth return -- and when growth returns, they will say it's a delayed result of the stimulus.
In reality, the elections are just a beginning. The nation is moving away from statism, except for special interest groups dependent on the State. The country is transitioning from political means to economic means, and it won't be long before the public is demanding the end of the two wars and that all our troops be returned. Unless some lone psycho terrorist blows something up, organized terrorists like al-queda are not likely going to attack America -- the response would be too severe, and the countries harboring terrorists don't want to face the response. The nation will grow weary of the false alarms, even though some will say we are becoming complacent. America wants to return to the business of America, which is business.
If we maintain gridlock in government and if corporate taxes are abolished, we'll start creating new wealth and the country won't even listen to who takes credit, they'll simply start producing again and continue to stand guard against the return of statism. This is the beginning of a change in direction.
