The Na­tional Elec­tion

The Covington News - - Opinion -

“One man may hit the mark, an­other blun­der; but heed not these dis­tinc­tions. Only from the al­liance of the one, work­ing with and through the other, are great things born.”

~ An­toine de Saint-Ex­u­pery

Tues­day the Amer­i­can peo­ple rose up and sent forth a pow­er­ful mes­sage.

They said that they want Congress and the pres­i­dent to work to­gether to cre­ate more jobs for the Amer­i­can peo­ple.

Since the 2006 elec­tion when the Democrats rose to power and did noth­ing but ob­struct and stop any eco­nomic pro­gram that then Pres­i­dent Bush wanted, to the cur­rent crop of Repub­li­cans who did their best to do the same thing to Pres­i­dent Obama, our coun­try has gone into a tail­spin.

The Repub­li­cans should not take the re­sults of this elec­tion as a man­date for their poli­cies.

In fact, Repub­li­cans would make a bold state­ment of change if they elected a new leader as speaker of the house in­stead of re­hash­ing John Boehner, who now ap­par­ently has had a great epiphany and wants to honor the true will of the peo­ple.

Amer­i­can tax­pay­ers want Congress and the pres­i­dent to work to­gether to bring our jobs back home, to add no new taxes, to amend ma­jor mis­takes on the health bill, to cre­ate an en­force­able im­mi­gra­tion bill and to lis­ten, yes ac­tu­ally lis­ten, to what con­stituents are telling them.

Any­thing short of this com­prise will re­sult in an­other revo­lu­tion, and we are afraid that it might not be so peace­ful if it hap­pens.

We ask each of you in your daily prayers to ask God’s guid­ance and bless­ing on our elected lead­ers and our coun­try, that they make wise and bold de­ci­sions that will con­tinue to keep us safe from ter­ror­ists, and will guide us out of this eco­nomic re­ces­sion that has hurt and crip­pled the lives of so many of our neigh­bors.
