I predict that even with a Republican-controlled congress the US will continue its leftward march towards totalitarianism. Until we have a government that is controlled by leaders who are fanatical about liberty, expecting anything else is totally unrealistic.
We need a huge class-action lawsuit against these people for the damages their fraudulent actions have caused. Gruber and all of the Democrats who helped him sell this disaster should be left penniless as an object lesson to the politicians in both parties. If any business had based the sale of a product on such a mountain of lies, the perpetrators would not only sued, but would be doing hard time for fraud.

Fatherlessness

You write of the, "The results of the policy choice to reduce the emphasis and funding on public education". When exactly in this country did that ever happen? If you are saying that pouring more money down the rat-hole of public education will somehow result in fewer children growing up in fatherless homes you are out of your mind. The increase of children without fathers in their home has coincided with a huge increase in money spent on public education. I fail to see where spending even more money on public education will magically achieve the opposite result.
Te aftermath of Michael Brown's shooting is so similar to the railroading of border patrol agents Ramos and Campeon during the Bush administration. The sad fact is that Bush and Obama are far more similar than the vast majority of both Democrats and Republicans like to admit.

Militarized police is very disturbing. Law enforcement should be allowed no weapons that are not allowed their fellow citizens.
Millennials are by and large unsympathetic toward Israel because they are ignorant, just like you, Rachel.

Obama; Cruzin'

Like Cruz or not, one thing is certain; he is doing exactly what he told Texans he would do when ran for office. So, unless you think that when it comes to politicians, dishonesty is a virtue, if you don't like Cruz, your real beef is with the Texans who elected him.

You wrote, "The question is this: Do we want to sit out and lose so we can send a message of some sort? Or do we want to at least stop the hemorrhaging of liberty and the expansion of government?" If you think that electing Republican squishes is going to stop the expansion of government, you are living in a dream world. Nevertheless, I get it and will sadly hold my nose and vote for the squish Republican congressman who is running for reelection in my district.
It seems to me that sales taxes should be based on and paid to the seller's local taxing authorities. If the seller's locale exempts sales tax on items delivered to other states, then sales tax should be paid to the buyer's state and local governments. This would result in competition between the states and local governments to minimize their sales taxes in order to attract on-line retailers, who would tend to locate in low-tax jurisdictions. This tax competition would benefit both on-line and traditional brick and mortar businesses.

Obama and the Road Not Taken

You wrote, "The Obama administration apparently has assumed that calm, not conflict, is the natural order of things. The world supposedly can run on autopilot without much guidance from its only superpower." But there is another way to explain Obama's actions. What if "calm" is not what Obama wants? This leads us to the question I have been asking myself for the last several years. Is Obama a moron who doesn't understand what he is doing, or is he a monster who does understand?

Suicide By Stupidity

You need to do more research on just what the phrase "high crimes and misdemeanors" would have meant at the time the Constitution was written. You would learn that Obama absolutely is deserving of being removed from office. However, that does not mean that it would be wise for Republicans in the house to impeach Obama. Why indict a criminal when you know that he would be tried by a corrupt jury that would automatically vote not guilty without even giving any serious thought to the matter. That is the Senate we now have. When the subject of impeachment arises, the only sensible answer for Republicans to give is, "Of course the president should be removed from office, however, with our totally corrupt Democrat-controlled Senate, it would be an exercise in futility. That being the case, we do not consider impeaching Obama to be a serious option."
