It's two days after the election, and the Democrats are picking up the pieces after being slammed by the Tea Party Train.
This conservative train roared into Washington and promises to do much damage to the small gains made by President Obama's first term--and, perhaps, last term, that is, unless we wake up and get to work NOW.
Indications suggest that had more Democrats and Independents voted on November 2, the result might have been different. At the very least, the damage could have been mitigated.
So now what?
Let's just hope that the damage won't bring us back to the Bush years of Big Business, unregulated financial institutions, recession, deficits, new wars, and overall incompetence.
Now it's two years away from the Presidential election; this may seem like a long time, but bear this in mind: the conservatives are already hard at work, planning for 2012, grooming their Palins, Boehners, and Toomeys.
We need to get to work NOW, not six weeks, six months, or even one year before 2012.
For 2011 and 2012, the question we ask all Democrats and Independents:
Will YOU Vote?
You can be certain that the Republicans and Tea Partiers will be at the polls, exercising their right to vote.
So should you.
I know I will.
