PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM

A referendum, not an election

Dennis Prager sees Tuesday's contest 'the most important since the Civil War'

Next Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2010, is not Election Day. It is Referendum Day.

It may be commonplace for commentators to announce that every election is “the most important election in our lifetime” or something analogous. But having never said that of a presidential election, let alone an off-year election, this commentator cannot be accused of crying wolf when I say that this off-year election is not simply the most important of my lifetime. It is the most important since the Civil War.

The reason is that, unlike all previous elections, this one is actually a referendum on the direction of the United States of America.

If the Democrats win:

And what would constitute a Democratic victory next Tuesday? Anything other than a Republican landslide. Any other result will be interpreted by the media and the Democrats as solely a result of the economic recession and as the normal losses of the dominant party in off-year elections.

In other words, the only way to ensure that the electoral results are seen as a repudiation of the growth of the state and the other Democratic and leftist goals is through an enormous Republican victory.

Only then will America understand that this election was not first about jobs. It was above all about America.
