This last election says a lot about our nation. People voted, or chose not to vote, for a fundamental shift in our country that will be felt for generations; from our fiscal policies to our national security.

I hope all of you remember 9/11, and how quickly our country resolved to protect our citizens and our homeland.

Now fast forward to Benghazi. It's been well over eight weeks and we still don't know what killed four brave Americans. The news press tells stories of seeing weapons covered in blood.

Imagine being an American on foreign soil asking for increased security measures and being denied; being involved in the heat of battle, mortally wounded, knowing you're going to die — and knowing your government was not responding, even though military support could have been there within minutes.

Imagine being the mom or dad of your son or daughter, and watching as this administration came out saying a movie caused the death and destruction. Now watch as a parent, wife or daughter waiting for testimonies about what really happened.

The sad thing about all of this is the trail has gone cold and we may never know the story or capture those responsible, nor will we get the real story from this president.

After Hurricane Sandy, the press reported New Yorkers Dumpster-diving for food while FEMA offices were closed due to weather.

Remember this is the government that you want handling your health care. Unemployment spiked again; employers are cutting back due to Obamacare and the increased burden it's going to put on their very survival. The stock market is in free fall. The day after the election it dropped 300 points, one for every delegate he got.

Folks, we just sold our birthright, and for what? You put in the answer. For each of us it will be different. This is a sad time for our country, and let's just hope it doesn't get worse. There is a lot to lose, and I hope America doesn't experience everything this president has in store for us. Remember Russia; he'll have more flexibility after he's elected.
