It has been said that “every cloud has a silver lining.” As one author put it: “there’s a silver lining to every cloud that sails about the heavens if we could only see it.” Could there possibly be any silver lining to the dark storm cloud of Obama-care? It hangs over our free-market economy like a swirling mass ready to drop a funnel cloud that will wreak havoc on our liberty and prosperity. Every bad situation has some good aspect to it…right? I must admit that our nation has recently been overcome by the effects of the misguided actions of President Obama and the Liberal Democrats in congress. It is difficult at this point in time to see any positive way forward. Difficult times are like dark clouds that pass overhead and block the sun. When we look more closely at the edges of every cloud we can see the sun shining there like a silver lining.
I see a silver lining! It started as a faint glimmer in 2010 when Nancy Pelosi lost the speakership in the US House of Representatives. It is becoming ever more visible as it appears more and more likely that Harry Reid will lose his position of power as the Senate Majority Leader. Consider the possibilities if this November, Republicans increase their majority in the US House of Representatives. Consider further the delightful possibilities if Republicans win control of the US Senate! We can stop President Obama and his minions in the executive branch from enacting more of their lame-duck liberal policies on America. We can finally give them battle with Harry Reid out of the way. Isn’t that a wonderful prospect to think about. Now that, my friends, is a silver lining.
