So my side didn’t win last night. That’s how elections go. All of us who vote are driven by some overriding priority that frames the election. For me, it’s a desire to limit the power and scope of the national government. I’m concerned about protecting the liberty of Americans from bureaucrats. Others voted on the basis of who they thought might create more jobs for our ailing economy. Others voted because they view the government as a legitimate source of public support. And some voted to maintain the historic nature of the Obama presidency; a referendum on history.
