After billions of dollars in political advertising, we ended up on November 7 in the same situation we were in on November 6--Obama as president, the Democrats in charge of the Senate, and the Republicans in charge of the House.
Here's the reality--there is no way that the Democrats won't get a large majority of the Black vote in presidential elections. They have Blacks snookered into thinking that Republicans would bring back slavery, stop all welfare, etc. The Black community's either unwillingness or inablity to see through this isn't going to change.
Conservatives/Republicans/Tea Party Members/Libertarians need to focus on what they can control. Here are a few things we can control:
1.Purchasing non-union products and services. Unions have brought/bought us 4 more years of Obama. Everytime you patronize a unionized company, you're putting money into the campaign coffers of liberal politicians. Just by doing a little research, you can buy products and services from non-union companies.
If you buy a new car, buy a non-UAW auto. You can buy an American-made Honda or Toyota. They put non-union Americans to work.
This Christmas, use FedEx instead of unionized UPS to send your packages. Send cards by email instead of the public union U.S. Postal Service.
Stop shopping at unionized Krogers and go to Andersons or Sautter's.
(If you have other non-union shopping ideas, please respond in the "Comment" section of this blog.)
2.Hiring non-union workers. When you hire an electrician, plumber, or carpenter to do work at your home or business, check to be sure they're non-union. The "union members are more skilled and experienced" statement is malarkey. Again, why should we support people who don't support us?
3.Limiting (or eliminating) watching ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN--and their affiliates. Along with the unions, the other entity that has given us more of Obama is the media. In the next 6 months, make an effort to cut the number of hours of television you watch by 50 percent.
4.Contributing to charities whose beneficiaries didn't give us more of Obama. Homeless shelters and food banks assist groups of people who went to the polls and voted for Obama. I won't be contributing to those organizations any longer. Why should I donate to people who won't in turn have the compassion or appreciation not to slap me in the face by voting for someone who is going to forcibly take money from me to give to them. I'd be a fool to continue to support those groups.
Elections should have consequences for the winners and losers.
