Now of course, the question is what will the right do? They have a lot to say, but just like years past - they do nothing for any of us. The 40 hour work week that Boener is going to restore for instance is misleading at best. Obabacare lowered the hours for benefits to 30 hours a week. Many people have worked only 36 hours a week for a long time now and still get benefits, so this 40 hour work week business is just taking money out your pocket and giving it back to the employer: that's the Republican way....
So, let's all see how the Republicans save 'Merica.
You can dance without a lawyer
It is more likely that the right wing's definition of a liberal is a myth.
1. Obama was re-elected in 2012 and hasn't really done anything since to make the mid-term election against liberalism. That would suggest the country is more liberal than it is conservative but that a lot of liberals didn't vote in the mid-term.
2. Liberal referendums such as minimum wage, legalizing pot, abortion, gun control were overwhelmingly voted for and the conservative ideas, issues and values were rejected.
This election was very weird. It seems that money won the election, not the people.
In my state of Utah, the Democrat, Doug Owen only had 100K to campaign with but his Republican contender, Mia Love got a lot of outside money and had over 4 million in campaign funds. Mia Love only won by about 4K votes. That's not an overwhelming victory by any standards. Dems in my area are feeling kinda bad because we didn't donate more to Owens campaign so he could've at least have had a commercial. That might have made the difference and put him over the top.
