He won, get over it.|
Many angry Republicans are flooding the Internet with claims that the Nov. 6th election was tainted or even signing online petitions urging the disbandment of the United States.
Conservative talk show hosts chortle gleefully at every sign of weakness in the American economy. This makes Republicans appear as if we are cheering when Americans lose their jobs or when our investment portfolios lose value, this really helps our image.
I was thinking of this while driving in Chicago and saw a bumper sticker with good advice for all of us: "He won, get over it".
Republicans first need to stop denying the reality that we lost and do some serious searching for the reasons for their defeat.
We have seen that the voters are increasingly turned off by negative advertising and yet the bulk of our rhetoric was directed at how bad the Democrats are and very little to how electing Republicans would have a positive impact.
I would hope that in future elections Republicans concentrate on the basic Republican message of personal responsibility, economic opportunity and fiscal conservatism and how this would lead to greater prosperity for all.
For now, all Americans should be working together for greater American prosperity where unemployment and poverty rates are lower and our personal income and investment values are higher.
Let us put aside our partisan differences until the next elections but for now, let's all be Americans.
He won, get over it.
