The Vote Heard Around the World

Massachusetts's historic senatorial election is probably the no.1 item in the blogosphere right now, so it was only fair that ILSA got in on the act. After much trawling, I thought this one by Lindsay Perigo summed up the mood well.

Some lefty reactions were reported at the American Power blog, here and here.

I watched with shock on American tv the smear campaign by the Dems against Brown and can honestly say this is a great result, and a real victory for America, and by extension, the rest of us (let's be honest).

Republican Scott Brown’s stunning victory in the election to fill the Senate seat formerly held by far-left shyster Edward Kennedy is a decisive indication that the American voters’ honeymoon with Barack Obama is over and they are clamoring for divorce, says SOLO Principal Lindsay Perigo.

“Never mind their incomprehensible stupidity in entering this abusive relationship in the first place,” admonishes Perigo. “What’s important and reassuring is that they’ve awoken to the coercive, anti-American nature of their president ... and want out.

“Mr. Obama won their hearts with his sweet-talk about change they could believe in. The actual change he has attempted to enact is from soft capitalism to hard socialism.

“Scott Brown proudly promised to be the vote that derails Obama’s health care plan. This plan would make it compulsory for every American to take out health insurance—a shocking reversal of the relationship between the state and the individual laid out in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Massachusetts voters who supported Obama in 2008 but voted for Brown today are citing health care as the reason for their switch. Mr. Obama and his fellow-socialists Pelosi and Reid have been told in no uncertain terms their Big Bossy Government agenda is not wanted.

“It’s to be hoped that the rest of Obama’s toxic program is now equally destined for the ashcan of history. His proposed success taxes, his treasonous over-spending, his cap-and-trade scam, his decreeing that carbon is toxic, his takeover of the ‘commanding heights’ of the economy, his refusal to call terrorism ‘terrorism’ let alone name its Islamic roots, his gladhanding of dictators, his obeissance to union mafias, his diabolical determination to turn the Land of the Free into the United Socialist States of America ... let us hope his treason to liberty has been stopped in its totalitarian tracks.

“This will require that voters, who showed themselves none too bright and none too American in 2008, keep faith with their awakening. It will require Republicans to repudiate their own socialist proclivities and present a genuine pro-freedom alternative to Mugabama in this year’s elections. It will require that the magnificent patriots of the Tea-Party movement keep up the pressure to take America back to its roots.

“May today’s vote be heard around the world, and obviate the need for another equally audible shot,” Perigo concludes.

I think you've gotten a bit lost...

It looks like the mantle of leadership is becoming unbearable for shoulders so narrow. Bummer is going to go to the end of five years like a punch drunk boxer. That niggle of doubt - whooops - is becoming a fully fledged Niagra

Actually for me, this election result has demonstrated the utter stupidity and idiocy of the electorate. They know whether you vote in Democratic or republican candidates, you will still get the same raw deal. The new guy will be serving a new set of masters (special interests). To me if this Massachussets election was to have any real meaning, the electorate should have elcted an independent candidate and hence usher in a 3rd movement. One that is not aligned to the current specia interest groups.

God, what a wasted opportunity.

@Black anonymous - agree, but there was no one for them to vote for. The independents backed the Rep candidate - for the Dems to lose this post from a position of support upwards of 60% and to be pipped at the post by 52% by a Rep is a huge indication of the mood that the USA is in. This will hopefully also show the rest of the Reps what the USA people want; i.e. to go back to their conservative roots.

GREAT SCOTT Brown did it, lets hope this is a sign of things to come "WORLD WIDE" Every conservative that wakes up and stands up for what is right and fights against liberal doctrine will be a plus for South Africa.
