Yes, the re-election of President Barack Obama is the end of a contentious 2012 election cycle. No, it is not the end of the Republican Party. Republicans need to just calm down.
Yes, voters let President Obama keep the keys to the White House, but they did not give him the checkbook. The place where all spending must start (the U.S. House of Representatives) remains in Republican hands.
While there may be many recriminations from the nomination to Election Day, the election reflects a changing America. This is not something new for the United States. It does change. And, more significantly, governing coalitions change.

My conclusion from the election results is simply this…
50% of our fellow Americans are either woefully ignorant, foolishly selfish, or both.

Had America voted following that first debate on October 3 the winner would have been decisive for Mitt Romney – hands down?

Americans are going to make a choice between two men who would be president of these United State of America for the next four years.
There are many who believe that this election will be the most important election Americans have ever been involved in. I tend to agree with them.

Recently I was asked to speak to the Woodstock Tea Party on the 225th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution of the United States, a Constitution that was crafted with divine assistance to protect the “unalienable rights” Thomas Jefferson had embedded in the Declaration of Independence, the document that declared the colonists right “to assume among the powers of the earth” to become an independent nation founded on “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”
