Election Commentary: A Donk House  

Tuesday, November 07, 2006

With the House having been projected to win the House, there has been speculation that those who have won the new Donk seats are "conservative Democrats".

Are we talking Zell Miller types? If so, then the Republican Party had better look out. If the Democrats are moving to the right (given the Republican move to the left over the last ten years), then it will become all too obvious that the Libertarian argument that there isn't much difference between the two may come to fruition.

It must be said that it's not too likely that there will be a huge exodus of Republicans and Democrats changing parties. What you will see is a grassroots movement to try to get the Republicans to move back to the right - and past where they started.

You see, at some point, the Constitution MUST become the issue of the day. Libertarians have already become sick of the unconstitutional socialism that has plagued our country over the last hundred years. Many Republicans have, too. If the Republicans want to do something productive for America, their best course of action is to sit down and read the Constitution, avowing its implementation as its platform. In doing so, they could win back the votes of the Libertarians and others.

I'd even go as far as to say that some Donks (if, as it's been said, they are conservative) may see the benefit of bringing America back within its constitutional limits and choose to stand with conservatives in support of the Constitution.

Ultimately, the Constitution must win. America hangs in the balance.
