My prediction is that the growth of government will continue unabated, the debt will continue to grow, illegal immigration will continue, our liberties will still be under attack, and money and partisanship will continue to dominate in Washington.
When the economy finally begins to turn around, the party in power will cheer and declare that their policies, which really aren't any different from the policies they replaced, are the reason. The party out of power will declare that they started the ball rolling last time they were in power.
Meanwhile, money and partisanship will ensure that nothing of substance gets passed in Washington.
Oh, and it will no doubt be colder in December than in July.
That last prediction is the least certain of any of them.
