Thoughts on the Election...
I went to UA-Fort Smith and let all of my liberal friends rub it in for the entire day. Can't honestly say I have ever seen a liberal do that when they lost.
Think about it though. Arkansans poll:
- +70% Pro Life
- +70% Marraige between a man and a woman
- +70% on lower taxes
Add to that:
- Tip O'Neil's mantra, "All politics is local."
- The Dems have run the house and senate in Arkansas since Reconstruction, yet education, rate of pay, and numerous other categories rank at the bottom and the only stat Arkansas ranks near the top with is in highest rate of taxation.
- Poor weather always has meant lower turnout on the democratic side.
It is no wonder that a logical person would conclude a slight Republican victory. I guess Huckabee was right, Arkansas may well be a banana republic.
The one redeeming factor of having the leading Democrats in Arkansas holding office in Little Rock is that now we have all of the rats on the same ship.
Here's a question for you Democratic readers. If all I do is whine and gripe, piss and moan, and offer no new ideas (like the democrats have done for the last two years) will you vote Republican? That appears why the Dems won on Tuesday. They certainly didn't offer any ideas or solutions.
I guess Republicans are just not built that way, you know the whole personal responsibility thing !
Great Blog. Well get em next time !
