NasCarNut: The Republicans did not "seize control of Congress". The Voters, Democrat and Republican, got tired of the Democrat BS especially Harry Reid bringing the Senate to a standstill and not allowing any votes. Non compromising Democrats were sent home.
The get out the vote buses do not roll in midterm elections.
And as recent letters to the editor suggest, a lot of the Democrat Voters which the Democrats rely on in elections are stupid and lazy.
The letter writers words not mine.
Ignorance is bliss to some...
SO. You are telling me you LIke the IRS Scandal. You like the Benghazi scandal, You Like Fast and Furious, you like 60 million immigrants entering the country on Barry's invite when we cannot even take care of ourselves, or our neighbors, you like the fact that Russia is flying NUCLEAR bombing TEST RUNS against the USA all summer and Now as we speak, you like the fact that every time a cop kills a minority in self defense it is murder and almost starts a race war, you like the fact that bills are being illegally made up the POTUS by bypassing the legal branches of gov. You like the fact that there is a war on coal, guns, ammo and self defense by legal citizens. I have NEVER taken a wooden nickel but it does not surprise me that you probably have a bank full of them since you are defending a socialist czar and still believe in Hope and Change !! Are YOU for freakin real ??
Are you for friggin' real,greek.I bet you have quite a collection of wooden nickles.You know, the sad part is that you really are sincere in your ignorance of this reality.To state that the country was better off six years ago...., well you can't make that detached ignorance up.
wELL nut. yOUR HEROS THE DEMOCRATS HAVE HAD THE UPPER HAND FOR WHAT six YEARS NOW AND has anything changed????? no it has worsened.... iT HAS BEEN WAY WAAAYYY WORSE THAN WHEN THE REPUBLICANS ARE IN CONTROL.... Your dems tell you what they are for to get elected then do the opposite.... And all the corruption of the last 6 years is UNPARALLELED by ANY administration d or R !!!!
@beright..have you forgotten the Republicans insist that they stand against big government and regulations and protect free markets, capitalism, and the American way. They demonize Democrats for advocating for restrictions and regulations, but their actions speak louder than their words when it comes to the realities of Republican politics. Take a look at the money trail; it's easy to see that regulations are a cornerstone of the Republican way, just as long as they're the ones reaping the benefits.
Three sectors celebrating the most for the GOPs victory are energy, industrials and financials, look it up. Get ready for a lot of Green on Wall Street...
Just think if banks had no regulations how many shady deals would be going on. Now that Republicans have seized control of Congress, bankers are hoping they might see a loosening of regulations created in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. You get the government you deserve. After Tuesday's results, it's looking like we deserve another recession. You can be sure the GOP will do its best to give it to us, while further enriching the powerful Wall Street special interests that fund the Party...It's what they do.
Do you have any thoughts on beright's comment,kunec?
Did you forget,beright,corporations are people......,selectively.
JP Morgan is in the news again, along with Citigroup, for more shady bank dealings. Fines are nice but why hasn't one person at JP Morgan gone to jail?
Someone at these companies has to know what is going on.
Why isn't the gov't spending time chasing these scoundrels down?
I hope the new AG has a better sense of priorities then Holder. These bankers need to go to jail along with corrupt IRS officials.
That is also a good question. We both know that some members of any constituency will vote the party line (both dems and repubs) no matter what.
They may just not figure it out.
That is a good point. Question is will the other voter be mad enough to see the damage and vote for someone that is not a democrat.
If we give 8 million illegals amnesty, what Democratic constituency would suffer the most? Who will get those minimum wage jobs that everyone complains about? If we agree that some of the illegals are from Mexico I can tell you for a fact that they are not afraid of hard work. So if you get millions of new citizens who are not afraid to work, which Democrat constituency gets hurt first?
Keep your heads up Kunnect and BeRight. Barrys too stupid NOT to sign the Amnesty executive order and the Democrats can say GOOD BYE to a democratiuc president in 2016 which means that unless HILLARY switches to INDEPENDENT or REPUBLICAN, she has about as much chance at winning president as Monica Lewinski has winning a wiener eating contest... Wait a minute, she may have a chance at that. Point is, the DNC better reign in ole Barry before he cripples them. They aint smart enought to see that..
Voiding that amnesty will be a challenging action on the part of the Republicans, even with a Republican victory in 2016, and Obama is fully aware of it. He's using immigration as a tool of divisiveness in the same manner his handlers ordered the creation of ObamaCare. Create a dependency program and you've got a segment of the population hooked through the lip. As I've suggested here many times, it's not about what the people want. It's all about advancing the powers of the State and the masters that manipulate it for their gain. As I've also said, Obama's biding his time awaiting a Grand Jury verdict in Ferguson, MO so that he can again stick his wand into the pot of racial discord and get it boiling for his political benefit.
OK, the "A" word is out. The president has a plan that is going to give 11+million illegals amnesty.
Is that what we voted for in the last election?
He purposely held off on this action thinking by taking that issue off the table, his Democrats would keep control of congress.
Now president Oblabla is going to do it on his own executive order.
I can not think of something that could be more divisive at this time than doing something like this in a lame duck session.
Ohwiseone: Harry Reid did not bring one bill passed in the house up for a vote in the Senate. The only do nothing in congress was Harry Reid.
After the president’s news conference the other day, members of the media are starting to refer to him as President Oblabla.
Ohwiseone - When you say "This election was far from a declaration of republican ideals !", you and I are in partial agreement (a rare occurrence indeed).
This election's results were more a repudiation of Obama's policies and the Democratic Party paid for his abuses and mismanagement. When he said, "I'm not on the ballot this fall. ... But make no mistake, these policies are on the ballot," the president said. "Every single one of them.", HE SAID A MOUTHFUL!
