The country has elected a man who is certainly a philosophical socialist, and who may turn out to be a true-believer in Marx. And yet I feel strangely giddy.
I voted for McCain–knowing in my heart that he would not be a very good president. He has no coherent philosophy to guide him. There is no predicting the behavior of such a man.
I voted against Obama. I did so precisely because he has a guiding philosophy–a philosophy which, when given practical expression, has always proven to be disastrous.
With Obama, I know what to expect: a prolonged and dirty street-fight for the preservation of our economy and our Constitution.
The pressure of uncertainty is gone, leaving me lightheaded and giddy. That feeling won’t last, of course. There is too much to be done.
Let’s get busy.
