    Things may get worse or they may stay the same. definitely not changing for the better.

    Yes and no. Those 300 plus passed house bills sitting in Harry Reid's top left drawer will come up for debate and a vote. Some will pass, some will not. The Democrats will become the party of the filibuster and pray the Republicans do not invoke Harry Reid's nuclear option on them as they did on the Republicans. The passed bills will be sent to President Obama who will probably veto most of them.

    But one will see the stark contrast between the two parties in full bloom. Gridlock, it will still be there only in a different form. Instead of Senate Majority Leader Reid tabling everything it will be up to the president to veto quite a lot of it. But gridlock will still exist. That is unless compromise ceases to be a four letter word. But I would get my hopes up.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Nothing will ever change, but even if the Republicans take over Congress, it won't matter, Obama will still veto anything they want to do and they don't have the 2/3 majority to override a veto. It's same old nonsense forever.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    In all likelihood, the most important thing that could happen as a result of the elections in MN is that it could stop being required to order food with wine at restaurants without a full license.

    I see no evidence that the majority of politicians of either party serve any of the interests of the vast majority of the people.
