Excerpts from Rush’s analysis of the election results –
It is rare that a political party running for office in a midterm election not standing for anything ends up with a mandate, and they have one, and it is the biggest and perhaps the most important mandate a political party has had in the recent era, and it is very simple what that mandate is.The Republican Party was not elected to slow down the speed the country is headed to the cliff and go over it slowly.
The Republican Party was elected to stop before we get to the cliff. And that’s the mandate:
to stop Obamacare;
to stop amnesty;
to stop the open borders policy of Obama and the Democrats;
to stop the Big Government assault on the free enterprise economy;
to stop national security policies that have allowed terrorist networks all over the world to pop up and fill a vacuum created by the absence of the world’s lone superpower on the world stage;
to stop the run-up of a debt greater than all previous presidents combined have created;
to stop efforts by this administration to use the IRS and other agencies of government, in violation of manners and law, in attacking political opponents;
to stop, to put an end to this incessant and divisive lie that is the War on Women;
to stop the people who are breaking the system.
The results do not mean that voters want Republicans to govern. The election does also not mean that the country’s become conservative. It can’t be said that there was an ideological component to the mandate, because the Republicans did not run on ideology.
