This election was big, in many ways, and not just the Presidential race. The GOP gained 4 seats in the Senate. That makes it 55-44-1, the largest GOP Senate majority since the Depression. The GOP gained 4-5 House seats, expanding their grasp of the House. The GOP also owns 30 governor's mansions and the majority of the state legislatures. The Republican President, while narrowly winning election in 2000, now has a 3.5 million vote margin in the popular vote and a decisive victory in the Electoral College - the first time that's happened in 16 years. Why is all this happening? Because America is becoming a Republican nation. America is rejecting the policies of the far-left (which has been the more powerful wing in the Democratic Party since 1968, Bill Clinton notwithstanding) like peace-at-any-cost, big government socialism, anti-patriotism, and increased taxation. America is embracing the policies of Ronald Reagan and the GOP: lower taxes, less business regulation, pride and optimism in America, and the willingness to destroy those who would destroy our way of life.
