Mixed Signals

Well the world financial markets certainly know that the dems in charge is not good news (Wall Street also knows what's coming down the pike). And in my own little corner of the world, George Allen looks likely to go down to down by half a percentage point to noted bawdy author Jim Webb.

The satisfying news is that the voters of Virginia have defied the pollsters, who said the issue was much closer, and overwhelmingly approved an amendment to the state constitution defining marriage and barring so-called civil unions.

Certainly Virginians have sent a mixed message: Webb, a legitimate Vietnam combat hero, has bent over and become an absolute tool of the dem party line: abortion rights, tax the hell out of the most productive elements of society, homosexual "rights," to include civil unions/marriage, and turning tail to let the jihadis take Iraq.

What the Dow giveth, the Dow taketh away:

"Wall Street rose for a third straight session Wednesday, with the Dow Jones industrials reaching another record close as investors grew more confident that a huge victory by Democrats in congressional elections would result in gridlock and keep lawmakers out of the way of business interests."

That same reporter wrote exactly the opposite story this morning when the Dow was down. It didn't mean much then, it doesn't mean much now.

The moral of this story is don't believe someone who tries to explain the motives of tens of thousands of investors in a single sentence.

Webb left the republican party and I suspect we will see a more of RINO's leave. Part of the issue with the party was its inclusion of those who are pro baby killing and pro big government solutions. I doubt many who leave will find peace in their souls on the other side. It is their beliefs which cause them pain. We need to have those who truly believe and thereby convince others to change their beliefs rather than a big tent filled with those who do not believe. I kind of see this like the Catholic Church who has many who say they are Catholic but then say they are pro choice Catholics.
