    I think you don't understand Europe, we have economies just like America, we raise taxes the same way,we have private enterprise etc, we are exactly the same, except we spend the tax take in a different way that's all. You really don't know anything do you.

    Good point, couldn't agree more. I doubt seriously that the Republican House(Boy does that sound good) will be in the mood to bailout liberal California when the country is running trillion dollar deficits.

    The Democrats are coming off of back-to-back wave elections though. By definition, that means that they've extended themselves deeper into Republican territory, and they have to defend a lot of seats that would flip back to the Republicans even in a NEUTRAL political environment.

    Add in the fact that the economy sucks and the President's approval rating is slightly bad (although 45% is not as horrible as most Republicans seem to believe), and you have all the elements for a wave election. That's not to downgrade the Republicans' accomplishment...I'm just saying that you shouldn't read into it that the American people suddenly hate everything Obama has proposed doing.

    dems have an advantage in that poorly educated and ignorant people tend to reproduce at faster rates than intelligent and self sufficient people and dem policies since FDR has been to subsidize the creation and expansion of the poorly educated and dependent class.

    It was more than just a wave election, it was a tidal wave when you factor in state and local election results. The entire Industrial Midwest changed this election so apparently the dumb people there don't realize how good Obama has been to them.

    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Yes yes, Democrats are stupid and Republicans are brilliant. Thank you for your excellent contribution to the discussion. Insightful as always, TurtleDude.
