Destroying the hopes and dreams of many who feel that they have a right to health care at the expense of everyone else, Republican Scott Brown has been elected to the U.S. Senate, representing Massachusetts.
Disappointed liberals will, of course, blame it all on Democrat Martha Coakley’s campaign. And while she certainly made several mistakes, that tells only part of the story. After all, the president himself showed up to support Coakley and make fun of Brown’s truck. That should’ve helped significantly.
It didn’t. It’s not all Coakley. It’s time for the left to consider that the American electorate is refusing the socialist agenda promulgated by Obama, Reid, and Pelosi. If a Republican can win a senate seat in Democrat-run Massachusetts, it’s time to consider that the voters are unhappy with the status quo and it’s time for some change from the Hopenchange we’ve endured the past year.
The Democrat party no longer has a supermajority in the Senate. It’s not going to be as easy as it was to continue to use the American people as guinea pigs in the largest social experiment in recent decades. Time will tell if the Brown upset becomes the bellwether for more Democrat politicians losing their seats, but for now, the U.S. can breathe a short sigh of relief.
