Last Week's Election Was Really Important. Here's Why.

There's a new sheriff in town. Or at least there is the potential to be.

That's how many feel about the America we are living in today. With abortion, same-sex marriage, overwhelming national debt, compromising immigration reform, socialized healthcare, threatened religious liberties and excessive government control, it can be easy to question whether America is still "one nation under God."

But the power shift in the Senate has huge potential to turn it around. Last week, Republicans won more than enough seats to take the majority vote. Not only is this a clear communication of dissatisfaction with the current presidential administration, it is also a hugely influential shift in government.

One key factor is the Senate's ability to decide on U.S. Supreme Court Justices. The justices make huge decisions on issues like abortion, marriage, and civil liberties and are appointed to a life term. The new Republican-led Senate likely will challenge Obamacare and President Obama's speculated move to give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, as The Conversation reports. 

November's election also hinted at the possibility of a Republican president in 2016. While the liberal voice may have been louder than the conservative cry for traditional values, the tide has now officially changed -- showing the power of the conservative vote in America.

What issues are you most concerned about in America today? Would you like to see a Republican or Democrat as president in 2016? Let us know! We would love to hear!
