The November 2 election was not the end of the war, but rather one minor victory in a small side skirmish. The battle rages on, and the and the war is still very much in danger of being lost — if not in this generation, than in the next. If conservatives, Tea Party activists, and others get complacent, the war will be lost. It’s not time to celebrate; it’s time to get to work.

However, the cold, hard reality is that liberalism suffered a defeat but not a crushing one, and the war is far from won. In the past, victories in these minor skirmishes have resulted in people becoming complacent. The battles that are not making the headlines in the war on freedom continue to rage despite the victory.

Although it may not be festive to rain on the victory parade, it is important that we consider the top ten reasons why there is a lot more work to be done.

Although many incumbents were swept out of office, the vast number of them were reelected by their constituents. The ruling elite is still composed of self-styled aristocrats who know what is best for you, your family, and your children.

09) The bureaucracy in Washington has never been more powerful. The list of government agencies with the power to control every aspect of your life is astonishing. The FDA, EPA, IRS, DHS, FSOC, and HHS are still out there, and that doesn’t even scratch the surface of the alphabet soup of unelected bureaucracies not beholden to the voter and the whims of the electorate. The power of these agencies has grown massively during the Bush and especially the Obama administrations. They are the government within our government.
08) The Federal Reserve still remains unchecked.

07) The spending obligations are still there, and the economy is still bad.

06) The unions still have control of the government.
