A Hard Look At Reality In The Light of Yesterday's Mid-Term Elections
The material below was distributed by Heritage Action and it's food for thought when deciding how to move forward to try to restore America before we turn into just one more 3rd world banana republic.
1. Candidates win when they campaign on conservative principles. In race after race, Republicans who won campaigned on repealing Obamacare, stopping amnesty, and restoring limited, constitutional government. Remember: just a year ago, the Establishment told us that fighting Obamacare would cost Republicans in the election.
2. The American people are frustrated with the status quo in Washington. But the Establishment is already trying to claim victory. That makes it all the more important that we fight to rein in big government and end business-as-usual cronyism in Washington, where the well-connected get favors from those in power. Your work as a Sentinel is critical to ensuring lawmakers hear from the grassroots.
3. The hard work starts now. Winning elections is important. But what you do when you win is more important still, since it enables legislative victories and future political success. We have to ensure this new crop of lawmakers sticks to their conservative campaign promises. In less than a week, Heritage Foundation and Heritage Action staff will meet with every newly-elected Representative and Senator to start building relationships. Over the coming weeks and months, we will start educating them on the issues, reinforcing them in their home districts, and pushing them to vote on principle.
