It’s a done deal, awaiting Obama’s signature. I am truly too disheartened to write anything tonight.
Please use this open thread to share your thoughts, provide insight and inspiration, give practical advice, etc. I’ve already received several emails from conservative groups (the GOP, Republican politicians, etc.) urging fund raising. (Just FYI, in less than 1 hour, the GOP has already raised more than $86,000 in its 40 hour fund-raising drive towards a $402,010 goal.)
In the fall, we were disgusted with Republicans, and some of us, after the election said that they didn’t deserve money. I think that they’ve gone a long way to redeeming themselves with this fight. They showed remarkable cohesion, intelligence, and savvy. With a single issue burning before them, the Republicans proved that they could fight the good fight, even if they lost the first big battle.
Since this same single issue will be what unites Republicans, conservatives, libertarians, and independents into the November election cycle, it is time for us to dig into our pockets and help out. I know that I will. Remember, the momentum is now, before we get resigned to a dismal, socialist status quo.
I’ll be back blogging sometime tomorrow, but for tonight I’m going to creep off and quietly mourn the end of the world as we know it. In a day or two, I’ll be ready to come out swinging.
