    This is going to be a titantic challenge between a Big Govt. liberal in the WH and the promise from the Republicans after last night's election

    Republicans promise an era of limited government

    Boo, did I hear correctly that 3 Supreme Court Justices were recalled in Iowa with the election last night? If so, why were they recalled?

    Yes. They followed the law like other courts ahve done across the country concerning same sex marriage. Now they'll get new judges who will likely do the same thing. But this does set the stage for judges to be like politiicans and subject to making it not about law, but about being elected. I can't see this as good for Iowa, or good for the country.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Chances are that won't happen. The House will probably end up being more partisan than it has in a while.

    Sadly you may well be right.

    I personally don't want my government to continue "doing" things....I want it to stop doing things, and get out of my life. It's really making life difficult.

    Having health care is a huge burden. Better to simply not be treated when you need help. Ss and Medicare are simply too much trouble and we need to make sure there is no safety net at all. Human suffering is a priviledge. And we sure as hell dion't need roads built or fixed by government. Pot holes are fun. We don't need snow plouges or animal disposal or the health department or anything at all. Let the strong survive and the weak die. Fair enough.

    What law? Where in the Constitution is marriage defined? Looks to me like the people are tired of activist judges. Hope others states do the same thing
