Election 2010

November 2, 2010

I made a difference; so can you. Vote!If I remember correctly, it’s pretty usual for the president’s party to lose seats in Congress in the mid-term election of his first term (although it may not be usual for him to lose as many as he’ll lose tonight).  Today I remembered that I wrote a poem in celebration of the trend-bucking 2002 mid-term election, when Bush’s party gained seats and a majority.  I thought about putting that poem here, but then I reread it, and decided to spare you!  (It was when I had only just converted to Christianity; I didn’t think about things the same way at all back then.  Also, you shouldn’t have to be subjected to my poetry.  Insert reference to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy?)

As conservatives have pointed out many times before (Mark Steyn and Glenn Beck come to mind), and as someone was just reminding me in a conversation two days ago, elections aren’t everything—the underlying culture is deeper and more lasting and more important, for example, and of course it all passes away eventually anyway and our relationship with God is what lasts—but elections do matter, as far as they go.  Check out the results of this one as they come in at Townhall.com, a Web site that played a non-negligible role in my conversion to conservatism and Christianity.
