There were lots of important lessons from election night. Despite the spin of Democrats and Obama pretending not to care about the results, they stumped heavily for losing candidates. Obama could not get them re-elected. That should tell the Blue-dog Democrats not to cave in when standing up for life and against the health care bill. Obama can’t save them from losing their next elections. The magic is gone.
In New York, the Hoffman story is powerful – even though he lost a close race. But will the Republicans learn? They wasted ~ $1m on a RINO (Republican In Name Only) who endorsed the Democrat after she dropped out. Remember Arlen Specter? In one of Bush’s biggest mistakes he campaigned for Specter’s re-election, only to have Specter switch parties when it was convenient for him. We all knew he was a RINO to begin with.
Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party outsider, annihilated the liberal Republican — despite the fact that the RINO was propped up with huge quantities of GOP cash. Then, after the turncoat Republican dropped out, Hoffman delivered a strong showing against the Blue Dog Democrat, who enjoyed the full support of the White House.
. . .Conservatives know they need the GOP, and the GOP is surely beginning to understand how much it needs conservatives. So there can be no more million-dollar campaigns for ACORN-backed, tax-and-spend, secret-ballot-bashing turncoat RINOs who are to the left of Obama on social issues.Liberty is the only alternative to tyranny, and conservatives will always fight for liberty. That fact needs to sink in with the GOP…pronto.
Republicans need to vote on principles and get real, live conservatives in office. They can win!

Update from a pro-life perspective:
What do Dede Scozzafava, Creigh Deeds and Gov. Jon Corzine have in common? All were endorsed by abortion mammoth Planned Parenthood. All 3 candidates were virulent supporters of abortion rights and opponents of human personhood….
The humiliating loss by Scozzafava was a particularly hard blow for PP as she was clearly the “poster child” of PP political candidates. The long-time PP supporter, board member, and Sanger Award winner had such a poor showing she was forced to resign from the campaign the week before the election
Maine voters latest to turn down gay marriage – nice to see that even Liberal states know an oxymoron when they see one. Real marriage won despite being outspent two-to-one. Be sure to book mark Mass Resistance to keep up on the unethical antics of the pro-gay lobby and the Liberal freaks who think that there is nothing wrong with homework assignments requiring 11 yr. olds to draw an ejaculating penis.
Remember that the losers’ “lies and fear” rhetoric is just that: Rhetoric. No one is denying the right for gays to have relationships. It is simply a matter of noting that the word “marriage” does not apply to same-sex unions.
