Europe makes a "right turn" for the better.
Socialism rode a continent into recession, and it was never designed to bring it out of one. Europeans apparently had enough with their high taxes, intrusive governments and their worsening economies. The Republican Party should take note at this "historic" event. Maybe they can learn something. I hate to toot my own horn, but I do it so well. I said it over and over again. Conservatism can't be beaten in a debate or in an election, if it is properly contrasted against the flaws of liberalism, People in Europe simply had enough. When Obama beat McLame last year, Obama didn't win because of his hardcore liberal bent. Obama had to pretend he wasn't a Socialist in order for him to have passed himself off as being "mainstream". Obama won because of three simple reasons..
1. Obama used George Bush as a proxy in which to stain John McLame.
2. The color of Obama's skin played a major "historic" factor in his victory
3. John McCain was a weak "moderate" Republican, and I've said before that moderate Republicans don't win elections, they lose them.
Obama never ran on a platform of taking over banks, car companies, insurance companies etc. As our economy continues to thread water at best, Americans are going to figure it out. They did so with Carter, and Obama is no exception to the rule. Misery doesn't like company around election time.
Since liberals in our country want our country to emulate Europe so much, I wonder will they say we should emulate their latest choice of government? People in California of all places are taking a fiscal conservative stand against their elected official's liberal tax and spend recklessness. I'd say that the conservative reemergence in our country is well on it's way.
