Today is election day, one of my favorite days of the year, since it is the day where people can have their say. We are lucky because we have free elections. Today, if you live in Virginia, New Jersey, Maine, or NY-23 or CA-10, go and cast your vote, because many people died so that we can be free.
What people are choosing today…
(These are the most important races being held today. There are some other races, but they are on the local level of government, and so they aren’t that important and won’t have that big impact on DC.)
- Virginia Governor.
- Virginia Attorney General.
- New Jersey Governor.
- And a vote on Gay Marriage in Maine.
The impact on DC
According to the latest polls, it really seems like Republicans can win the gubernatorial races. That will likely send a message to Moderate Democrats, the so-called blue dogs, not to follow a socialist domestic agenda being pushed by President Barack Obama. That could affect the health care debate and the cap and trade debate.
The impact on the GOP.
The gubernatorial races will teach the GOP a lesson, we need to nominate actual conservatives, not RINO’s. Both Christie and McDonnell are pushing optimistic agendas, with a small government, lower taxes and less spending.
Another lesson learnt, Scozzafava. She is a complete liberal, and it really surprised me, and disappointed me, that the Party had nominated such a leftist candidate. She ended dropping out of the race and backing the Democrat. Unbelievable.
She was doing so bad in the polls because she is pro-choice, pro-gay marriage and pro-stimulus. The GOP ought to nominate conservative candidates who stands by America’s principles.
Good luck McDonnel, Christie and Hoffman!
