The North Carolina election results have some Hollywood liberals upset. They define Barbarians as anyone who is unenlightened enough to disagree with them. And they may impose the ultimate sanction within their power - deny them invitations to 'all the right parties'.
Barbarians tend to be pragmatic and realistic, not insulated and iconoclastic. They reexamine things daily, and don't mind testing some of those liberal truths that don't hold up.
When the Romans said Rome was invincible, Barbarians checked out their capabilities and decided it was not true, and that what was best for the Barbarians was to challenge the Romans. That is what is happened to Democrats in 2010, and it is happening again in 2012.
The people who voted in North Carolina think society is better off with male female households and real limited federal powers. The people in other states do too.
