To at least put some kind of dampener on the Pelosi/Reid/Obama shenanigans, anyway! If that's all November can get us, I'll take it!

Yeah, you're asking the new GOP to be middle-right on government, and I'm sorry, they are just as big government these days as the Democrats are. The only difference, in terms of government sizing philosophy anymore is what agencies should get our tax dollars and which shouldn't. Granted, I think the GOP would pick more effective and prosperity building agencies than entitlement agencies, but they still think big brother is the answer to all our problems.

A view America used to take as well. But our current snubbing of Israel is a symptom of nose-dive our leaders' long-term thinking processes have taken. But then again, I've never met any progressives that could think about cause and effect chains much further than the tips of their noses anyway.
I think you pinpointed the problem with the entire liberal and progressive movements...voyeurs! Although the far right conservatives can be voyeurs too, they just look at different stuff. But man, those of us in the middle wish the rest of the control freak admins, bureaucrats, pastors, and politicians and yes, sometimes professors, would quit peeping into our bedroom windows and just leave us the hell alone. Steal each other's money and liberty and nose in each other's bedrooms, fine, just can the middle-class opt out please?
Second that. We need some competition in the political party arena. But Perot scared the Des and Repubs into squelching the chances of that ever hapening.
Pfft, he can tell the IRS to not enforce those taxes, just like O does with immigration...
It might, because her constituents just might have to get jobs instead of surfing and gaming all day on the backs of the working middle class.

They will buy with their govt checks that the remaining skilled workforce will cover through high taxes, until they revolt...!
