You don’t really need me to give you another year in review, do you? Let’s face it, we are going to hell in a hand basket. Our enemies are so emboldened that they slice off heads like a vegan slices tofu. Our economy is in the crapper while our president jets off to exotic vacations that you paid for.
See, you knew all of that already.
But, two fabulous things did happen in 2014. The first was our fracking innovation that finally forced gas prices to go down to pre-Obama levels. This, hopefully, broke the gridlock in your wallet. The second was the landslide victory for republicans from coast to coast in the mid-term elections.
*Let’s talk about fracking. America’s energy revolution is the linchpin in our strategy of peace through strength. If we are energy independent, extract our own oil and natural gas from the good old USA, we don’t have to pay our enemies for oil. If we are not sending millions of dollars a day to, say, Russia or the Middle East for oil, that is millions a day less that they have to spend on military operations. So, instead of buying shiny weapons with all that money, they have to go back to their caves and fight over the last falafel.
Would you please explain that to liberals around the water cooler? You better, because Obama has already vowed to curtail drilling on private lands. While you were partying and I was hopped up on NyQuil, the Obama administration has already put in motion the plans to stop this innovation that has started a party in your wallet and is keeping us safe.
No thinking American can defend this man any longer. His policies hurt the American people. His policies are only good for him and his rich, elite liberal cronies.
*Another great thing that happened was the midterm elections. You know that we took over the senate and gained lots of seats in the house. But, did you know that local and state legislatures went so red that about 70% of state governments are now run with a Republican majority? Not only do people want to stop Obama and his anti-American policies, they want to stop pervasive liberalism that is destroying their towns.
But, that trusty pen is still doing its work-outs while Obama is on vacay in Hawaii. He has already vowed to veto any legislation that doesn’t fall in line with his progressive, liberal, America-killing ideology.
Stay strong, patriots. 2014 gave us a few great reasons to hope. But, we have to continue fighting and hope that one day soon, we can set this great nation back on a path to prosperity, for everyone.
