POLITICS: Today Is Our Day

Even here and now, on Election Day, you can still hear the grumbling of disaffected Republicans, conservatives, and libertarians who will tell you that our elected representatives in Washington, and their leaders, deserve to lose this election. Many of us have felt the same way at some point or another over the past two years.

But this is not their day. This is our day. You can hear that in the GOP's emphasis on GOTV - an acknowledgement that, in those states and districts where the politicians have failed to persuade the persuadable and swing the swingable, the job of saving our majorities at the end comes down not to the party's leaders but its voters. They vote all year long; we vote for representatives in Washington but once every other year. And we live with who we vote for.

The question you have to ask yourself, or ask of anyone you know who still feels that way, isn't what the politicians deserve. It's what we deserve. Why should we and our posterity be punished for their mistakes with the kind of folly that a Speaker Pelosi and a Majority Leader Reid would visit upon us?

Today is our day. Don't vote for the politicians on the ballot. Vote for yourself, your family, your country.
