    A stronger republican presence doesn't mean anything seeing how a republican in Massachusetts or some other liberal state is not the same as a republican in Oklahoma.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Ummmm still dude. Couple of factors here:

    1. Democrats will not have filibuster proof majorities in both houses.

    2. Blue Dogs.

    3. There's no national mood even among liberals for gun control atm.

    The last thimg American politicians of the totalitarian/socialist/collectivist bent want at this time is 800,000 pissed Americans with long guns.

    Mexico is opposed to the idea, too.

    I wonder what the Constitution has to say about the topic? Oh, yeah, the Constitution say the government can't infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Logically, that means the government can't stop the people from buying them, either, because that's how they get them to keep them.

    Obama is appointing anti-Constitution lying women with talking vaginas to the US Supreme Court, who testify that they support the individuals right to keep and bear arms, but who then vote the wrong way on the Heller Decision.

    Socialists absolutely do not want private citizens, their pee-ons, to have the means to fight back.

    Only governments that aren't trying to pull a fast one on the people can afford to trust those same people with the means to shoot back.

    HillaryCare cost the Dems the House, plus all the scandals surrounding the House Democrats at that time, of which I'll mention the House Check Bouncing scandal was only one. Also, to top all that off, Noot promoted the Contract With America and succeeded in making the 1994 Congressional elections a national referundum instead of 435 local races.

    True enough. The facts are this:

    Democrats will not do anything to fix what they've done wrong with America. They need to be replaced.

    Practically speaking, there's no alternative to kicking Democrats out of office unless they're replaced by a Republican.

    The Republicans had control of the House and partial control of the Senate at some times in the recent past, and they became "progressive", ie, moving away from their constituent roots and becoming corrupted by Washington.

    The people elected Republicans in 1994, and then stopped paying attention, again. Americans have been doing that far too much.

    So. The solution.

    The Democrats get replaced by Republicans this election. Has to be done in a last gasp effort to save the tottering republic. These Republicans have to promise to restore the republic before they get votes. (Restoring the republic is what others call "getting back to the Constitution".)

    The PEOPLE who are the bulwark of the republic have a job to do, and that job is to prop their eyelids up with toothpicks and WATCH what their congressthings are doing. When their congressthing starts falling off the wagon, he needs to be KICKED, not prodded, back into line, or he needs to be KICKED off the wagon and replaced.

    This is why the Congress has a two-year election cycle. So the bad'uns can be pruned quickly. Under no circumstances should the electorate accept lifetime careers for their law makers.

    The best way to ensure lawmakers do not become career politicians is to eliminate the perks that make being a congressthing so enticing. No pensions, no special privileges, including health coverage and travel perks, no extra pay for seniority, NOTHING that sets one elected official in the House above another simply because of length of tenure. Term limits areconstitutionally mandated for the Presidency. The Constitution should be amended to limit Congressional and Senatorial terms as well.

    But THE PEOPLE have to wake up, stay awake, and make the effort to punish their representatives when they fail to uphold the Constitution.

    Interestingly enough, "Obamacare" is essentially what the GOP proposed during that time.
