The world conservative movement won a huge victory in Europe this past weekend because European voters rejected left-wing take-overs of businesses and huge government spending to combat the severe world-wide recession. They are rejecting the Nanny state said Glenn Beck on his show on Monday.
Considering that those socialist policies are exactly what the Obama administration is forcing upon America -- with the help of an extreme left-wing United States Congress -- the European election results portend disastrous consequences for the Democrat Party in next year's congressional elections -- unless the "Blue Dog Democrats" and others with commonsense stop their party's rabidly partisan and ideological leadership.
The center-right elected candidates picked up 267 seats in the European Parliament. On the other hand, the center-left politicians won only 159 seats. Daniel Hannan, conservative British Member of the European Parliament, said on the Glenn Beck Show on Fox News this past Monday that people make a mistake when they assume that liberal democracies are a permanent fixture in Europe.
Likewise, the Democrat leadership in the White House and in Congress -- as well as pessimistic Republicans -- are making a mistake if they believe Barack Obama's, Nancy Pelosi's and Harry Reid's pell-mell rush to socialism will be a permanent fixture in this country.
