    Don't you think the system needs to be changed?
    I think it needs to be changed, sure. But you need a greater agreement to make the change happen. I think like everyone else that money in national politics has gotten way out of hand, but the solution to that is to take the power out of the Federal government. Power is the commodity that is being sold in Washington. The only way to reduce the money is to reduce the commodity. If the government is no longer in the business of picking winners and losers then nobody pay pay extra to ensure they are the winners.

    I think the biggest move to taking power out of Washington is simplifying the tax code and eliminating loopholes. The greatest power the Federal Government yields is the power to levy, and not levy taxes. If you simplify the tax code so that every person and every business can expect the exact same treatment under the tax code then half of the lobbyists are out of a job.

    Expecting them to vote this power away is a pipe dream however.

    I think of all the political groups with the will to push such a measure the Libertarians come closest, but unfortunately I think the Libertarian party is better suited for a Parliamentary form of government which I do not favor.

    Hugh Hewitt had this to say. You remember him don't you.....he worked for Reagan's Judicial.



    The “emperor’s new clothes” phase of the presidency couldn’t come at a worse time for President Obama as voters are even now receiving early absentee ballots for the 2014 midterm elections. This has become a foreign policy election, or more precisely, a referendum on President Obama’s handling of America’s foreign policy. The battle for the Senate is the proxy for a vote of no confidence in the president, and GOP candidates across the country are benefitting from the collective desire to march into the voting booth and deliver the stiffest rebuff possible to the golfing Commander-in-Chief.

    This benefits Republicans who are trailing by a little but closing like Thom Tillis in North Carolina and Scott Brown in New Hampshire, as well as GOP nominees who have established small leads, like Cory Gardner in Colorado, or medium leads like Dan Sullivan in Alaska, Tom Cotton in Arkansas or Joni Ernst in Iowa. Candidates who are breaking away like Bill Cassidy in Louisiana and David Perdue in Georgia just need to keep the president’s collapse in leadership front and center while flanking each blast at his incompetence abroad with a reminder of Obamacare’s epic failures at home of Obamacare and the struggles of the economy staggering along under his regulatory agencies many faceted assault on American productivity. Even the longer shots like Mike McFadden in Minnesota in Minnesota and Ed Gillespie in Virginia don’t seem so long anymore. Who knows how deep the disgust goes?.....snip~

    Well yeah, but we can't throw all the Republican bums out and still win the Senate.

    We need one sacrifice from the old guard and I think McConnell would send a bigger message than Cornyn.

    Well sure, but since when do the Democrats abandon the happy lies?

    I think the Democrats know that if they go full Baghdad Bob this election cycle they could kill their brand.

    Rothenberg and Nate Silver too.....the Demos are in full panic mode and have Bilbo Clinton out trying to pull some more money for the Demos.


    Rothenberg: Expect a Republican Wave of at Least 7 Senate Seats


    While the current Rothenberg Political Report ratings don’t show it, I am now expecting a substantial Republican Senate wave in November, with a net gain of at least seven seats.

    Right now, for example, the Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call Senate ratings suggest Republican gains in the mid-single digits. My newsletter has the most likely outcome of the midterms at Republican gains of 5 to 8 seats, with the GOP slightly more likely than not to net the six seats it needs to win Senate control.

    If it goes republican now...then nothing happens for 2 years. Just political posturing and business as usual.

    Not really.....it puts BO on the line. Which then he can't just talk about vetoing. He goes down for the record and must use his Pen. No more hiding and no more talking BS.

    Oh, and "no one" he can call with his phone, for help.....either.
