VICTORY!

What?  Surprised to see a claim of victory on a Conservative blog after an election night where the most liberal candidate for president ever claimed the White House?  Don't despair, my friends!  Though the Republican party suffered many defeats last night, True Conservatism scored some major victories, in our own state and some other unlikely places.

The State of Florida passed a Marriage Amendment.

The State of Arizona passed a Marriage Amendment.

And while the votes are still being gathered in California, their Marriage Amendment is ahead as well!  And with over 96% of precincts there reporting, signs are good that it will pass.

So what is the count?  As of now, 29 states have passed marriage amendments, with California pending, it could be 30.  Arizona, the one state to ever actually fail to pass a marriage amendment (in 2006), now has a marriage amendment.

We've already stared to hear, and will continue to hear the word "mandate" thrown around frequently.  Many are suggesting that this election broke the back of the Republican party.  Some are claiming this election was a referendum on Conservatism and that our ideology is on its way out.

But consider the fact that this year, when the democrat voting presence was stronger than ever, Marriage Amendments passed.  In our own state which went to Obama, it passed with more than 62%.  That tells me that traditional family values and True Conservative social values are both alive and well and there is indeed Hope for the future.  That gives us a reason to celebrate.
