THE SUN WILL COME OUT TOMORROW

In proof of the continuing power of democracy, tomorrow, November 2, the nation will express its disdain for the big government policies of President Barack Obama. The House of Representatives will change hands, becoming a Republican center of opposition to the President, and the Senate will either become ineffectual for the Democrats or will also change hands. Americans must be ever vigilant and go to the polls to bring about this peaceful revolution. In many jurisdictions the ideal candidates will not appear on the ballot and, so, the aim must be to remove Democratic supporters of the President from power so that the President cannot press forward with his agenda of government insinuation into, and regulatory control over, virtually every major industry in America.
The present rise in popular sentiment against big government reminds me of the 1980 election. In that year, as a young college student at the University of Illinois, I formed an Americans for Reagan group to campaign throughout the Mid-West for Ronald Reagan. I was one of only 20 students on a very liberal campus intent on doing everything possible to bring out the vote for a man of great principle, charm, grace, and commitment. Somehow the Reagan campaign team found us on the campus. I remember holding a meeting inside Lincoln Hall one evening when a dapper gentleman in a suit dropped in unannounced and asked if he might speak to us. He said he was from the Reagan campaign. He thanked us for our support, and he promised us his support in helping us campaign. He asked me not to reveal word of it but that the Vice Presidential running mate, George Bush, would be visiting the campus to speak. He asked that on an appointed date we have flyers printed announcing the visit and disseminated throughout the campus and Central Illinois. He also gave me a card that had a phone number on the back. He said print as many flyers, brochures, banners, bumper stickers, placards, and signs urging votes for Reagan as we thought we could distribute between then and election day.
