Congratulations America—Tonight, You Failed

Well, it appears the results are in, and the Democrats wiped the floor with the Republicans in the House, and to make things worse, they're doing a number on them in the Senate as well.
What bothers me is that they did this having absolutely no message- other than more intense statism.
Tonight, America voted pro-Statism, and there really is no way around it.
What's worse- Ohio is now appearing likely to taking on some socialist mentalities. This is the state I'll be moving to, in 6 months- one of the reasons having been it's a Red State. Well, if you've read the initiatives that the new governor plans to put in, the state will be ruined. The voters of Ohio already voted for a minimum wage increase, and the new governor wants Universal health care. There IS, however, a glimmer of hope for them- it turns out 11 out of 18 districts voted for the Republican candidate for their area. That tells me Ohio still has a fighting chance..and that also tells me I still have a chance of finding my soul mate out there. I know Ohio's voting record- I looked it up, and I think the GOP will take it back sooner than anyone thinks...but I'm still discouraged a bit.
So, Craig Biddle, Leonard Peikoff, Diana- I hope you're all happy. Tonight, America collapsed to Statism- in a far worse way that it has in quite a while. You claim Democrats will be so bad, they'll be kicked out almost immediately, and replaced with something better. Just like the rest of America, sadly, you still seem to have no true understanding of how infrequently that actually happens, and placed your money on a severely dangerous risk.
There IS, however, a glimmer of hope- and it's a ray of hope I was wishing wouldn't have to come to: Democrats may be willing to pass the initiative to allow US Citizens NOT born in the country to run for president. If this is passed, the Governator can run. Unfortunately, he's a middle-of-the-roader, which is NOT good. There's also Newt Gingrich.
...and there's also, unfortunately, coming up what I've referred to before as the Point of No Return. Tonight's election verified it's coming. THIS is why I warned everyone not to insist on a Reagan before his time is really needed- and I assure you, it's gonna be needed sooner than you think. As far as I'm concerned, things are about to get MUCH worse.
The one thing that bothers me about that situation however: I was hoping America would've learned from 26-30 years ago, in election history, about AVOIDING a situation like that again. It appears we've unfortunately learned nothing, which makes the PONR so much more inevitable, and closing in...and likely to be worse than anyone thought. That next Reagan better be that damn good...
