A Liberal Supermajority

Get ready for 'change' we haven't seen since 1965, or 1933

The Wall Stree Journal, Opinion, October 17, 2008

If the current polls hold, Barack Obama will win the White House on November 4 and Democrats will consolidate their Congressional majorities, probably with a filibuster-proof Senate or very close to it. Without the ability to filibuster, the Senate would become like the House, able to pass whatever the majority wants.

Though we doubt most Americans realize it, this would be one of the most profound political and ideological shifts in U.S. history. Liberals would dominate the entire government in a way they haven't since 1965, or 1933. In other words, the election would mark the restoration of the activist government that fell out of public favor in the 1970s. If the U.S. really is entering a period of unchecked left-wing ascendancy, Americans at least ought to understand what they will be getting, especially with the media cheering it all on.

Yeah, how 'bout that? Elections have consequences.

If the political landscape is shifting to the liberal Democrats, it is because our party lost the faith of the people. If we are "entering a period of unchecked left-wing ascendancy," it is because we are exiting "a period of unchecked right-wing ascendancy". I think both parties need to stop with this type of name calling and get back to saving our country.
