20 Things That Went Right on Election Day 
by Michelle Maulkin
  
  1.  Republicans retained control of the U.S. House of Representatives.
  
  2.  Voters in Alabama, Montana and Wyoming all passed measures limiting Obamacare.
 
  3. Tea Party candidate Ted Cruze, one of the conservative movement's brightest rising
      stars, overcame establishment GOP opposition to clinch a U.S. Senate victory in 
      Texas.
 
  4. Corruptocrat Beltway barnacle, Representative Pete Stark was finally kicked out of
      office in California. 
 
  5.  Despite entrenched teachers' union opposition, a charter school initiative in
       Washington State triumphed.
 
  6.  Despite entrenched Big labor support, a radical collective bargaining power grab in
       Michigan failed.
 
  7.  Oklahoma voters said "no" to government race-based preferences in college
       admissions, public contracting and government hiring.
 
  8.  Montana voters said "no" to boundless benefits for illegal aliens. 
 
  9.  Wahsington state approved taxpayer-empowering limitations on its state legislature's
       ability to raise taxes.
 
10. For the first time since Reconstruction, the GOP won control of the arkansas state
      house.
 
11. Voters rejected tax hike ballot measures in Arizona, South Dakota and MIssouri.
 
12. Louisiana voted to protect gun rights.
 
13. Kentucky voted to protect hunting and fishing rights.
 
14.  Parental notification for minors' abortion prevailed in Montana.
 
15. North Carolina Republicans claimed the governor's office, congressional gains and
      control of the state's general assembly.
 
16. Paul Ryan will return to Congress after winning re-election and continue to carry the
      tourch for entitlement reform and budget discipline.
 
17. Conservatives won big victories in the Kansas state legislature.
 
18. Republicans won historic supermajorities in Tennessee.
 
19. Across the country, Republicans reached a post-2000 record number of gubernatorial
      victories.
 
20.  Wisconsin GOP wins back control of the state government.
 
Conservatives who were devastated by the national election results demonstrated how to lose with dignity and grace.  There will be finger-pointing and recriminations and soul-searching, but committed activists can't and won't lose heart.  We'll regroup, and keep fighting for our country.
 
I hope that this encourages you as it did me.  We can always look at our losses, but we need to also be grateful for our victories.  As in the words of a great patriot; "As for me, give me liberty or give me death".
