Election results and their meaning

Guest Author - Stacy Wiegman

As a result of the November 2011 mid-term elections, the pundits are now interpreting the results. I don't know about you, but I'm tired of pundits telling me what my vote meant.

The news this morning claimed that the ousting of 60 Democrats from the House of Representatives means that Americans want the parties to work together. That's not what my vote meant.

They also claimed that this would help the president to build the consensus he said he would build when he was running for office. I don't see it that way.

Here is what my vote meant: I'm tired of government getting bigger and getting more obtrusive into my private life. I'm tired of running up deficits for no good reason, and I'm tired of big government programs that do not add any quality.

I did not go into the polling station thinking, "I really want the government to build a consensus with the president." I walked in thinking, "I want this president's agenda stopped." What about you?

This morning on the news, the liberal talking heads just couldn't admit that the Democrats were thumped because we don't like what they've been up to. Let's remember something: for the past 2 years, the president has had a party majority in both the House and the Senate. He has achieved his agenda. Why did he want or need a consensus? He didn't. But now he has to reach out to Republicans because only now does he need them.

I do hope that when the cause is right that the Republicans will not hesitate to vote with Democrats. I don't want to see a backlash where the Republicans do what the Democrats did for the last 6 years, which is to vote in block for whatever their party dictates. There are times when I disagree with the Republican party position, and I want my elected officials to think for their constituents, not just their party.

I hope the new House majority leader doesn't rule with the iron fist that the last majority leader did. Our country has been stuck in a recession for almost 4 years, and now is the time for real leadership.
