Republicans already looking to 2016 race

In an analysis on Fox and Friends, it has been speculated that Mitt Romney lost the presidency because either Nickelback voted Republican or photos leaked of Romney in Crocs. Regardless, $1.9 billion was spent on the campaign and nothing has changed. The Democratic Party dominates the Senate and the Presidency. Key swing states in this election cast their electoral vote in favor of Obama, despite the massive campaigning from Republicans.

We can only hope that the economy will continue to pick up, that jobs will be recovered, and that the promises of change will be answered. Romney's concession speech reminds us that we are to keep moving forward.

"We look to our teachers and professors; we count on you not just to teach, but to inspire our children with a passion for learning and discovery. We look to our pastors and priests and rabbis and counselors of all kinds to testify of the enduring principles upon which our society is built: honesty, charity, integrity and family. We look to our parents, for in the final analysis everything depends on the success of our homes. We look to job creators of all kinds. We're counting on you to invest, to hire, to step forward. And we look to Democrats and Republicans in government at all levels to put the people before the politics."

Perusing my newsfeed on Facebook has informed me that our country is changing, but more importantly we "young people" have taken responsibility to elect our government officials. No matter what party represented, I commend anyone who voted in the 2012 election. Our country is changing because of the people who raise their voices during elections.

These issues lie on the minds of conservative constitutes, as the next four years will follow a similar liberal agenda. Republicans can take encouragement that a new battle will be waged for the 2016 election. So be sure to raise your voice. As for now, all we can do is pray. Pray that the next four years will bring prosperity to our country.
