A Victory For Life
The message was clear: our political system is corrupt and broken.
And they voted for change.
Voters shocked the world last night by soundly rejecting Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine -- and electing Donald Trump and Mike Pence. According to exit polls, Trump/Pence won the overall Catholic vote 52-45. They won white Catholics 60-37, but lost Latino Catholics 67-26 -- though among non-Spanish speaking Latino Catholics the margin was likely significantly closer.
Some thoughts on last night:
•While two races remain undecided, Republicans retain control of the United States Senate - with the likelihood of holding a 53-47 majority. This is a huge win for life -- and the votes we need to repeal Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood.
•Justice Scalia must be smiling from Heaven. The opportunity to replace his vacancy on the Supreme Court, and possibly others, with judges who respect the Constitution is real. Furthermore, a large number of lower court judicial appointments will be made by Trump/Pence. This is huge.
•James Carville said it best last night: “Obamacare is done.” And so is the HHS Mandate. Praise God!
•Biggest losers of the night (apart from Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine): ISIS, Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Emily’s List, Hollywood, Jennifer Palmieri, John Podesta, secular elites...
•Ignore the elite media narrative. The Republican Party has become the party of the working class. Notably, the same Rust Belt voters that backed Trump last night voted for Obama in ‘08 and ‘12. Were these voters racist when they voted for Obama? Nonsense. American workers, especially the white working class, have abandoned the Democratic Party. The GOP must now deliver on their promises. Republicans must create the conditions for an economic rebirth along with a vision for cultural renewal that heals. . . . Read More
