Colorado Recall Election - the difference in 'Doing Something Constructive' and just 'Doing Something'

Colorado Recall Election
Barbara Henderson

Shock of shocks, in a recall election Colorado managed to boot out two liberal trolls who went directly against the citizens of Colorado in passing ridiculous, useless, and repressive gun restrictions.

Basically, Colorado was fighting a battle for the entire freedom loving citizens of the United States.  Money was poured into the state by the Democrats (aka – the party of ‘make everyone poor’) specifically.  Michael Bloomberg personally sent in $350,000. 

I have spent the better part of the morning reading what news I could find about it, and then reading the comments posted after the articles.  Liberals are furious. As usual they are calling people who don’t agree with them vile names.  To me the most insulting name they call conservatives is ‘ignorant’.  Actually, conservatives are educated to the point that they understand that solutions are made using plans that actually work.  ‘Feel good’ solutions don’t do anything except make silly people feel good for few minutes.

And that is where this gun control legislation came from.  In the wake of horrendous violence, these silly people wanted to ‘do something’.  When they have this uncontrollable urge to ‘do something’, their goal becomes simply doing something.  That’s it.  They don’t have the right mind to understand that they left off the last word of the phrase.  It is supposed to be ‘doing something constructive’.  Gun control has been proven repeatedly to be ineffective at stopping violence.  It is also been proven effective in increasing violence by criminals against law abiding citizens unable to protect themselves. 

However, gun control is not the real issue in the Colorado recalls.  Simple CONTROL is the issue. There is a necessity that government set some limits on some things in order for a society to function.  No one is disputing that.  But these limits, these boundaries are supposed to be set with actual goals and solutions in mind.  They are not supposed to be set to give people the ‘feeling of having done something’.  They are supposed to actually do something constructive.

Overall I am very happy with the outcome of the recall election.  I hope conservatives in general take this win and go forward to more wins.  If we conservatives had effective leadership they would make use of the power of the angry citizen.  Conservatives have been given a small but real advantage at this point.  Conservatives around the country are waiting and watching to see what happens next.  It is time to pursue the advantage just as if a general had won a small battle in an actual war.  The enemy has been soundly defeated in this one place at this one time.  The Republicans and the TEA Party should not fail to pursue the advantage in this matter.  Now is the time to ‘do something constructive’ instead of just ‘doing something’.
