“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
Possible, but I think it depends on who has the most anti-incumbency energy. I think that will remain with Republicans for the short-term. Democrats have a lot of ground to make-up in the House, but less so in the Senate.Throughout my entire life, everybody hates congress, so whoever is in charge gets booted.
Congress is fine. The American public is what divides it. Special interests are also good for the country. It's just that people whine about the other people's special interests.It's totally true though - congress sucks. It's a group of people who are bought and owned by special interests. Campaign finance reform is our only hope to fix this sham.
In time, yes. But this can be a significant short-term victory for Republicans if they take the White House in 2016. They would have a short window to replicate the reforms pushed by President Obama and the Democratic Party. After that point, I would not be surprised in the least that their majorities start to fall thereafter.So go on and celebrate, Republicans. It'll only be a matter of time before everybody hates your party because people still haven't figured out what's wrong with our system and will have an easier time accepting that it's all the Republican party's fault.
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
Out. Be safe.

I'm glad to see you hanging in there and not running like GOPs did from their brand since 2006.
The election map could have been won blind-folded--we'll see how smart they are in 2016.
Of course Mitch will ask for straight-up-and-down votes as he did last decade--or threaten the nuclear option on legislation.
The GOP invented the nuclear option but some posters keep lying about it .

Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
