A Looming Victory For Republicans and Conservatives

After the hugely disappointing loss to Obama for the White House on November 6, Republicans and conservatives got news today which shows that capturing the presidency isn't the be-all-and-end-all of political power in the United States.

Today, Michigan's Republican-dominated House of Representatives approved bills that will make that state the 24th right-to-work state in the country.  Republican Governor Rick Snyder is poised to sign the bills into law within a few days, but union protestors are out in force trying to stop him, so it's not a done deal, yet.  However, the shrillness, meanness, and irrationality of the protestors--they compared right-to-work supporters to Nazis and Japanese militarists--reveal desperation induced by impending defeat.  So, yes, I think Republicans and conservatives can go ahead and celebrate.

The results of the presidential election caused much angst among conservatives and Republicans.  Lost in the grieving was the reality that the GOP controls not only the majority of the nation's governorships but also the majority of the state legislators.  That is power.  And Republicans in Michigan have used that power to give freedom of choice to the workers of that state.

Celebrate good times!  Come on!

It is and will be a victory, so's long as Governor Snyder doesn't back down to threats from thug unions. Wisconsin's Governor Walker didn't. Slapping down vile, vituperative union thugs is long overdue, for both the public AND the economy.

YOu are so right. The Conservatives are taking over from the bottom up. That is the way to do it. Get the base going and build from there. It will make us harder to beat
