On the Right Side: Right-wing will regain advantage

It's hard to believe this column represents four years of writing for The Daily Star. That's more than 100 columns!

I think I'll try for one more year so that I can get through the 2010 elections and celebrate all the election victories that will put the conservatives back in power, hopefully in both houses.

All conservatives have to do is just let Harry, Nancy and Barack continue to show how inept and incompetent they are in leading (?) this great country. Hopefully, we will be able to kick them out of office while we can still call our country great.

The public is starting to wise up to the fact that they made a terrible mistake these last two elections, and I have every confidence in this same electorate to see through the lies that will be spun once again this coming campaign season.

Finally, the voters are seeing what happens when the liberal left is in charge. We conservatives are going to have to take caution, not allowing the Republicans a second chance at controlling Congress unless they do a much better job than they did the last time.

They drifted away from the conservative principles and made the federal government larger and more intrusive rather than smaller, and were irresponsible fiscally.

We really are at the point where we don't have to worry about the ideologically radical, left-leaning liberals. They are becoming a smaller minority as time passes. They are simply loud, arrogant, emotional and non-fact-oriented, and the public is beginning to realize this.

Just look at a Gallup Poll taken the week of Nov. 9. It is unbelievable how quickly people are running away from the left, especially the independents.

As the Gallup Poll interpreter said: "Over the course of the year, independents' preference for the Republican candidate in their districts has grown from a 1-point advantage in July to the current 22-point positive gap."
