If red states would control their US Senators better then this would not be a problem. If a red state senator votes liberal or crosses the aisle, then the entire state government should campaign hard to ensure he/she is never re-elected. If the red state has a conservative majority, holding the governorship and both legislatures, they should be able to control campaigning and vote these lib senators out and give us a majority in both houses.

I was disappointed in Bush 2. I worked for Bush 1 and he was a good businessman.
A progressive is a progressive is a progressive ! and when you get to La La land it is so easy to become more corrupt.

States CANNOT control Senators, the 17th Amendment killed that, driving a nail into the coffin of Federalism. The 17th Amendment should be repealed and the control of the Senate returned to the State Legislatures (of course, with term limits (ONE), no retirement or benefits either).

Bush had a majority in both houses for a part of his two terms and we see that brought, Since when has a democrat or republican congress person put forth a bill to officially return power to the states regarding anything?

In Washington, Americans have two-party government, with a Democratic president and Senate and a Republican House. We had it before November's election and will have it again for the next two years.

Looking back from 2014, we will have had two-party government for most of the preceding two decades, for six years of Bill Clinton's presidency, three and a half years of George W. Bush's and four years of Barack Obama's.

But in most of the 50 states, American voters seem to have opted for something very much like one-party government.

Starting next month, Americans in 25...
