Correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to remember back in 2007 many Republicans & Conservatives saying that, maybe, we should just stay home, let Obama win, show the country what a disaster electing a Socialist would be, and letting the country come back to us in 2010.
And I also seem to remember some of the "greatest" minds of the right-wing political world telling us that it would be a really bad thing to do. That it wouldn't work. That we couldn't risk it. That the American people would just drift farther to the left once they got a taste of Big Nannyism. That we should just vote for the RINO because the slow train to Socialism is better than the fast train.
And now here we are: Obama won, the Democrat Party is, mostly, despised and discredited. Their left-wing agenda and totalitarian tactics have been rejected by a very large majority of the American people. The corruption of their people and their processes has been exposed like a bug under a rock and they're scurrying away from the sunlight as fast as they can.
Conservatism has shot up like a rocket, people are demanding that the Constitution be adhered to, big-government is seen as the problem and not the solution and the Tea Party Movement has brought millions of previously uninvolved people to the side of sanity.
All because nobody could get really excited about voting for RINO John McCain and, therefore, guaranteed a win by Socialist Barack Obama.
And what I find really amazing is that I seem to be the only person who remembers this. I haven't heard a peep about it anywhere. I don't mean this in any self-aggrandizing way. I really am just amazed that nobody else seems to have brought this up.
It just goes to show - once again - that you should never rely on the opinion of an "expert".
