Feeling giddy now that the invincible Barack has been proven vincible?

That's fine, but it's time to knuckle down and resume the fight against the cabal now using the White House under Barack Obama as the command post in the war to impose Marxism on the United States.

Between now and Nov. 2 there's a lot to be done in the wake of the stunning outcome of the special election that sent Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate to occupy the late Ted Kennedy's seat in that self-described "upper body" on Capitol Hill.

In a mere nine months, one-third of the Senate and all of the 535 seats in the House will be up for grabs, and the future of this nation will be decided on the outcome.

Winning a majority in both houses of Congress is job one.

Even though the White House will continue to be in enemy hands for another two years, much of the executive branch's power can be diluted if Capitol Hill is firmly under the control of a conservative Republican majority on the Hill.

Seeing that this happens starting next January when the new Congress takes over is the most important task facing conservatives perhaps in our lifetimes.

Tough as it sounds, sweeping away the 49 Democratic incumbents who narrowly won their House seats in 2008 and as those of many other Democratic members of Congress up for re-election is not as daunting as it sounds given that the majority of the incumbents were swept into office on the coattails of the no-longer invincible Mr. Obama.

Next November those coattails will be unavailable to Democratic candidates.

They'll all be on their own and exposed to the winds of change, once blowing in their direction but now buffeting them in gusts of chill winds that began to blow fiercely last Tuesday in Massachusetts.

Anyone who heard Scott Brown's victory speech heard the words of a staunch conservative who pledged to fight for tax cuts and create new jobs. "I'll work in the Senate to put government back on the side of people who create jobs, and the millions of people who need jobs" — recalling that as President Kennedy taught us, "that starts with an across the board tax cut for individuals and businesses that will create jobs and stimulate the economy."

Brown said, "with respect to those who wish to harm us, I believe that our Constitution and laws exist to protect this nation — they do not grant rights and privileges to enemies in wartime. In dealing with terrorists, our tax dollars should pay for weapons to stop them, not lawyers to defend them.

"I will work in the Senate to defend our nation’s interests . . . and to keep our military second to none. And let me say this, raising taxes, taking over our healthcare, and giving new rights to terrorists is the wrong agenda for our country.

"What I've heard again and again on the campaign trail, is that our political leaders have grown aloof from the people, impatient with dissent, and comfortable in the back room making deals. And we can do better.

"Across this country, we are united by basic convictions that need only to be clearly stated to win a majority. If anyone still doubts that, in the election season just beginning, let them look to Massachusetts.

"Fellow citizens, what happened in this election can happen all over America. We are witnesses, you and I, to the truth that ideals, hard work, and strength of heart can overcome any political machine."

The voters of liberal Massachusetts heard and acted on those words.

So will their fellow Americans if given a chance. It's up to us to see that they do. Look for candidates who can be trusted to follow Brown's example, help them to win primary contests, and back them on Nov. 2.

Get to work. Time's awasten!
