I've lived in a country whose govt is a perversion of what was intended my whole life. I'm 45. Why exactly shouldn't anybody who believes in Liberty be po'd enough to really(!) fight for it?

And when I say "fight", I'm not talking about preserving lower tax rates or trying to get a little scrap of meat out of an "improved" Obamacare.

Sore loser? Please. I've wanted to bust this friggin' DC cabal practically since the day I was born. Into 50 pieces.

I haven't gotten my way since 1984. And there was a solid democrat congress that ruined it even then. I'm not going to live long enough to even get a whiff of things going my way.

Although last week's election seemed like the end of common sense when it comes to fiscal policy, there is a silver lining. More certified public accountants are headed to Congress and the ones who were already there, are staying.

All eight CPAs currently in the House won re-election, according to the Journal of Accountancy, including John Campbell, R-Calif., Mike Conaway, R-Texas, Bill Flores, R-Texas, Lynn Jenkins, R-Kan., Steven Palazzo, R-Miss., Collin Peterson, D-Minn., James Renacci, R-Ohio, and Brad Sherman, D-Calif. Several of them won re-election after fierce contests in recently redrawn congressional districts.
