    Exactly my point. We changed parties, and nothing else changed. Surely, you don't think the growth of government, the debt, illegal immigration, the attack on our liberties, and money and partisanship dominating in Washington only dates from '06!

    Correct. In fact, part of my prediction was that the Republicans would do just that. Now, as for those conservatives, the ones who are going to change the trends I just mentioned, where are they?

    Exactly, and when they find themselves out, nothing of substance will change and people will still be fed up.

    The closest we've come to real socialism is the quasi take over of General Motors, which started under a Republican POTUS and came to full fruition under a Democrat. So, the real difference is... is.. sorry, it escapes me at the moment.

    Well, I hope not, but whenever I've expected any real change in Washington DC, that prediction turned out to be the one that lacked accuracy.

    I suppose that does sound sort of cynical, doesn't it? No, let's not give up. Let's not expect any miracles as a result of the next election, either.

    Parties will compete with each others, bribing the public with their own money. Perhaps the difference lies in selecting a leader with a proven track record in economic success rather than relying only on party politics.

    First step: Nominate Romney. Second step: Don't expect miracles, but hope that perhaps there might be a few changes.

    He is the only sensible choice, and should have been the nominee last time.

    I agree.

    So, how does he get himself nominated? How does he gain the support of the Evangelicals who are hung up on his religion?

    Total non sequitur! Congress doesn't have control of private business including lending institutions where credit was almost non existent.

    There has now been 21 straight months of private sector growth since the Bush Great Depression started.

    Maybe not in total outright ownership, but they certainly do have the power of over regulation, and threat of hyper taxation to use in a form of control don't they?

    This is a lie promoted those using manipulated statistics to say this when it is clearly to anyone with eyes that it is untrue.

    I don't think his religion is as much a problem as the MSM would like it to be.
