In the days since Obama was elected, I’ve been trying to find reasons for Conservatives to stay positive. That has not been easy. Conservatives know what the GOP needs to do to win elections but they haven’t been listening. The GOP has been ignoring their largest voting bloc in favor of chasing elusive groups like Independents, Hispanics, Walmart voters, etc. Maybe somewhere in the US today, there are Republicans starting to do the right thing. Maybe somewhere there is a groundswell of Conservatism growing. Unfortunately, living in the deep blue state of Washington–behind the Iron Curtain, so to speak,–I’m not seeing it. I hope it really is happening and that we have strong Conservatives candidates ready to take on the libs with guns blazing in time for the midterm elections.
A conversation that I had last night further pushed me into a state of worry. It’s hard to know how bad the economic picture under the bad policies of Obama and the radical liberal Democrats in Congress. But, it will be bad. We are headed for some hard times–probably harder than anything my generation has ever seen. I got some good advice last night and I’d like to pass it along. Get rid of debt. Don’t take on new debt. Watch for the stock market to rise briefly in an “Obama rally” and try to salvage some of the principle that you have in the market. And then, hoard some cash, just in case.
I don’t like the thought that the economy is going to head even further south. This kind of negativity is just the opposite of the thought process I’ve been trying to cultivate. But, we have to be honest. I have it on good authority that the banking crisis is not over yet, not by a long shot. And I also firmly believe that Obama’s Socialist policies will push us further into trouble. So tighten up the budget, kill your debt, put some cold hard cash in a safe spot and take care. It’s going to get worse before it gets better but we’ll survive just fine.
