But before you embark of your liberal agenda, there are some things you need to remember. Paying attention?
First of all remember that it wasn't the radical left that won you the election. And it won't be the radical left that will keep you in power in 2 years. You owe everything to the moderate vote.
Still paying attention?
So before you make the mistake of pushing bleeding-heart-left programs that will bleed our wallets, remember that we aren't all tie-dyed wanna-be socialists who think that the government should take care of everyone for their own good.
Just like we don't like right-wing scare tactics and religious right preaching, we don't like footing the bill for a welfare state and coddling criminals. Just like we don't want the church in government trying to legislate their beliefs onto us, we don't need you to protect us from our own choices, even if "it's for our own good".
We don't need more laws. We need people taking responsibilty for their own actions and for raising their children. We need schools to give children the education they need and we need the streets to be safe for our families. We don't need you to save us from media content, we can choose for ourselves and our children.
We don't need a welfare state. There's a difference between people who are in need and require the help of society and people who are lazy and take advantage of society. I know, I've seen both.
Yes, we need a strong economy, but that doesn't mean giving a free pass to your big business cronies. Sure, you can point at the Republicans and all of their big business money, but where did your millions come from for this election? Bake sales?
Don't waste our time with political theatrics. Yes, a lot of folks think that Bush is a buffoon. But unless you have a smoking gun, you don't have enough power to impeach him, so don't waste our time and money with pointless drama.
You have two years to show the moderates of this country that they didn't waste their vote and that they shouldn't boot you right back out of power in 2008.
Are you paying attention?
Because the clock is ticking.
