It’s been 48 hours since our election day, and significant races are still waiting to be decided. Americans aligned with both political parties are on edge while waiting to see which direction government will head, with democrats either keeping or losing their majority in Congress and Senate. The results were far from the Red Wave that was predicted. This was more like a low tide coming in during the winter. If no one is there to enjoy it, did it matter?
With record inflation, the economy in a recession, and the future financial outlook looking dismal, President Biden gave a speech on Wednesday that contradicted reality. His words needed fact-checking because they did not pass the common sense detector. This election was about whether or not Democrats were leading the country in an agreeable manner. With the results coming in, the country looks more divided than ever. Looking at the electoral map, Republicans control the heartland, and Democrats control the metropolitan centers.
As a “Constitutional Republic,” it remains vital that the mob does not rule for the minority. This is the safeguard that makes America work. However, there are many in the majority that turn a blind eye to the inconvenience that America is a republic, not a democracy. Republics are meant to protect against the separation of people by class systems, both economically and politically. Individual rights and the constitution are greater than majority rule.
Balancing power in the Senate, House, and Executive branch is important to protect our republic. Now that the Red Wave came in at low tide, the Republican party should use this time to recalibrate. It is time to back the party’s future for 2024, and the leader will be Governor Ron DeSantis. While he continues his rise to prominence in America, there also needs to be attrition in both major parties for the USA to be in a better place. The left must denounce the socialist progressives, and the right must separate from the alt-right fascism that denies a Republic.
