Recalling Ronald Reagan

by Smitty

From the FaceBook page that drives legislation:
The race for New York's 23rd District is not over, just postponed until 2010. The issues of this election have always centered on the economy – on the need for fiscal restraint, smaller government, and policies that encourage jobs. In 2010, these issues will be even more crucial to the electorate. I commend Doug Hoffman and all the other under-dog candidates who have the courage to put themselves out there and run against the odds.

To the tireless grassroots patriots who worked so hard in that race and to future citizen-candidates like Doug, please remember Reagan’s words of encouragement after his defeat in 1976:

"The cause goes on. Don't get cynical because look at yourselves and what you were willing to do, and recognize that there are millions and millions of Americans out there that want what you want, that want it to be that way, that want it to be a shining city on a hill."
Recall that, had nothing been done, an even more leftist candidate than Owens may have taken the one-year seat. Owens wins, but understands that, if he's running in 2010, he can't ignore the Hoffman voters, any more than Bill Clinton to ignore fiscal conservatives who voted Perot.

The Conservative Party and the Tea Party are undeniably a force with which to reckon. This blog recommends a strong buy on stock in all cotton undergarment manufacturers. After these election results, the Left will be stocking up, that is certain.

Keep fighting the good fight people, and the country may yet be restored.

P.S. Obviously, the Hoffman campaign needed to trick BHO into campaigning for Owens...


  1. I've always said it is better to have a true sitting socialist Democrat sitting in Congress than a RINO. Then the skunk shows its true stripes, otherwise the electorate is confused. RINOs must become extinct one way or another.

  2. With all due respect to you and Hoffman, I'm not sold on all this silver lining rhetoric. The fact is the Dems are +1 in the House.

    I'm all for the good fight, but it'd be nice for one of these good fighters to actually win one of them outside of Alaska.

  3. @Brian,
    You're going to hit some off notes on your way to playing "Layla" on that guitar.

  4. "The Conservative Party and the Tea Party are undeniably a force with which to reckon"

    Yeah, what a force!
    It's more like a farce. Hoffman can go home now and drink on all the Tea Party nonsense he wants. Sorry Smitty, but YOU LOSE!
    All the hoopla, all the hype, all the endorsements meant nothing except another Dem win. And in a district that's voted Republican since forever!
    Thanx dudes!
