Washington-Did you get the memo? The People Have Spoken

With 52% of the vote, Scott Brown defeats Martha Coakley for the Massachusetts Senate seat left vacant by the passing of Senator Ted Kennedy and becomes the 41st vote needed in the Senate to kill the health care reform bill.

Why was this Senate race so important?  It sends a powerful message to Washington, and let me tell you why…

  • “The state has been reliably Democrat since 1928,” and has only voted Republican four times, twice each for Ronald Reagan and Dwight Eisenhower.

  • For the past 40 years, Democrat Senator Ted Kennedy had been re-elected over and over…and over, again.
  • Websites like 270towin.com had images like the one below, predicting how “safe” Massachusetts was for then Senator and presidential hopeful Obama in the 2008 election.

  • Republican John McCain took a beating in 2008 when Barack Obama soundly beat him in Massachusetts, 62% to 36%.

With a state this resolutely Democrat, a defeat this large will make every Democrat Congressmen rethink their position when they blindly support everything Obama wants.  They must now consider the possibility that when they return to their home states, their constituents may feel quite like those in Massachusetts and put an end to that Senator’s career.

Are all the Democrat Congressmen in Washington willing to fall on their swords and support Obama’s every desire if it means the end of their livelihoods and political aspirations?

Massachusetts is a Democrat fortress.

However, I do not believe that this is a message of a fundamental shift in the beliefs of the people of Massachusetts.  They have reliably voted Democrat for over a generation, and I expect when this storm passes they will return to form.

This is a message sent from the Democrat controlled state of Massachusetts that when threatened with Big Government, more taxes and less freedom, ‘We the People’ will put an end to it, even if it means changing their stripes, if just for a day.
