    What I don't think they'll bring us.

    1. A border fence
    2. Rights for unborn babies.
    3. Respect for America abroad
    4. Lower taxes or tax reform
    5. Respect for politicians in general
    6. Approval of a Constitution adhering Supreme Court Justice...i.e. Scalia or Thomas
    7. Respect/tolerance and equal treatment of American citizens who are biblical Christians with respect to other American religious groups.
    8. Increased support for the American Armed Forces (all branches).
    9. I'm sure my list could be added-to many-fold by others.

    What they will do. IMO

    1. Will capitulate to Middle East dictatorship pressures.
    2. Will push the U.S. increasing towards globalistic relationships by erroding the influence of U.S. Constitutional law.
    3. Will lean towards the mantra that man is the bain of the world, and is the sole cause of global warming (If global warming even is happening).
    4. Democratic Senators and Congressmen will individually continue to have the highest per capita income of any party officiates in Congress, compared to any other party representatives.
    5. Lobbyists will have a "hey day" as they haven't seen since the years just before the Gingrich (Republican) Congress took over.
    **********
    Life will go on. We the sheeple, will gradually see that we impulsively gave up and were guilty of impatience in our fight against terrorism, and over taxation, and opened a small, but potentially dangerous Pandora's box in this past election.

    Blue states will stay, Blue at their core, but may pull a "Reagan" in a major election in the next few years as even "they" can't stomach the direction that their country is going.

    We humans seem to have to learn by trial and error. It's like the old mule and the 2x4 on the forehead.

    I think that the new Republican party will or has gotten a little bit of a wake up call. Conservatism isn't a moniker to take lightly.
