If You Think a GOP Senate Will Change Anything, You’re on Crack . . . & Here’s Why

By Debbie Schlussel

Don’t get too excited about the impending likely takeover of the U.S. Senate by Republicans. If you think anything will change . . . or get better, you’re on crack.


For the last two or three months, we’ve been treated to endless non-stop stories about the favorable chances of the GOP taking the Senate. Those stories and the predictions and ever-rising percentage likelihoods of a Senate GOP-opcracy have reached a fevered pitch, with gleeful Repubs and pseudo-conservative hacks all over the broadcast and cable news shows predicting the party of the elephants storming the Senate Majority leader position.

But here’s a tip: nothing will change. The likely Senate Majority leader will be Mitch McConnell. He’s no conservative. He stands on a foundation of pork and corporate welfare and amnesty for illegal aliens. While he wasn’t one of the “Gang of Eight” Senators who proposed amnesty for illegal aliens, he was their pimp, praising them and their bill and supporting it to the hilt. And guess what? That won’t change when he becomes Senate Majority Leader. It will only get worse. Ya think they’ll make our borders safer or tighter? Ha. Dream on, fantasists. Several of the likely GOP winners tomorrow, such as Colorado’s Cory Gardner have undergone extremist makeovers, repackaging themselves as supporters of “comprehensive immigration reform.” Ditto for Texas U.S. Senator John Cornyn, long pretending to be a secure borders guy (but I told you he was a fraud, and now I’m borne out). Don’t mess with Texas? PUH-LEEZE. The guy Texas elected is messing with it so much that ultimately there won’t be a Texas, just Mexas. Yeah, ‘cuz amnesty is really what we need in the age of ISIS, which is the remade Al-Qaeda we never defeated. Doesn’t matter, as the GOP is committed to give us that (and maybe ensure they will never control the U.S. Senate again).

Do you really believe Senate Republicans will do a thing to stop ObamaCare, to repeal it? Really? What do you predict they’ll do? Do you think they’ll just end it? Do you think they’ll repeal even parts of it? Here’s a tip: they won’t do anything. They didn’t do much before. They’ll do even less now. And because of that, ObamaCare and the destruction of the American healthcare system is here to stay. Ya know those clinics for impoverished inner city crackheads where they wait all day to see a doctor and months for MRIs and surgeries? Well, now, you, too, will ultimately have this fabulous experience. Mitchy and the gang won’t stop it from happening. It’s already happening, and they will go along, just as they always have.

And will Mitch McConnell and the GOP majority stop any of Obama’s far-left appointees? Nope. When Obama announces an Attorney General nominee as bad as Eric Holder or worse, will they stop him or her? Nope. Did they stop Holder? Did they make any attempt to stop most of Obama’s judicial activist appointees including Justice J-Lo, the Sotomayor chick who begs Oprah to get her a date? Nope. They didn’t stop her. Not even a pretense at a try. Ditto for that lesbionic-looking radical chick, Kagan. Don’t look for the GOP to do an about face and give Obama a hard time for the last two of his eight years. Ain’t gonna happen. Not even close. Mitch McConnell and Barack Obama are mutual backslappers, NOT adversaries, despite their verbal kabuki dance. Talk is cheap.

And will the GOP cut spending, cut corporate welfare, cut funding of stupid “scientific studies” to see if people identify with dogs as much as babies? Will they cut taxes? Will they do a single thing that is in the spirit of conservative principles, primary among them limited Constitutional government? Again, no. No, they won’t.

Will McConnell and his caucus of the congenital GOP restore our military and fix the cuts in size it has suffered, to the point that we are wholly unprepared as a fighting force? Nope. Why should they? They didn’t exactly oppose these cuts when they happened.

So, while you may think Mitch McConnell running the Senate is better than Harry Reid running it, just how much better is it? What will change?

Please tell me because I’m just not as excited as you. In fact, I just really couldn’t care less. Having an initial R after leadership positions in the Senate does little to enthuse me, especially if the R is basically just as liberal and disastrous, but only to a barely visible lesser degree. If “better than Harry Reid” is all you demand, you’ll never get more than just a microscopic scintilla better.

The only exciting, gutsy, courageous GOP Senator is Ted Cruz. And he is hated by McConnell and the gang. They will do whatever they can to stop him and thwart all of his attempts at good. There aren’t any others like Cruz in the Senate. He is the lone voice of light there. And, sadly, that won’t change with tomorrow night’s results. The GOP Senators are mostly far more like McConnell than Cruz. Far more like Obama than Cruz.

And that, ladies and gentleman, is a preview of the GOP-“led” U.S. Senate over the next two years.

Yes, the GOP will probably win. But, so what?!

If you think it actually means anything, Mitch McConman is laughing at you all the way to the cushy Majority Leader’s office.

Yes, Cruz is better, but in the end, I don’t think he will rock the boat.

One of the most disgusting displays I have seen this election campaign is the journey of all the Republicans to Kansas to support ultra-hack Pat Roberts. Cruz was among them. Roberts has made ‘abortion’ the focus of his ‘conservatism’ because he knows that no action will be contemplated in the Senate on this issue. A safe form of do-nothing conservatism.

The other rationalization for the Republicans, made by Limbaugh and others is that the Republicans do have conservative instincts but are ‘intimidated’ by the Dems. They have to get over their ‘cowardice’. And of course, the real problem, as the post said, as that they really don’t disagree on fundamental issues with the Dems.

Cut spending? Cut pork? Nope.

Advocate the bombing of Iran? Nope.

And on and on and on.

Little Al on November 3, 2014 at 3:50 pm

And Mitch McConnell? A few years ago he knifed his fellow Senator from Kentucky, Jim Bunning.

Yes, Bunning had limitations, but he did exhibit a few sparks of independence, and that was too much for McConnell. Down the hatch for Bunning.

Little Al on November 3, 2014 at 3:57 pm

Yes, it’s that old ensemble theater gang again, The Washington Whitewashers, Demmicans and Republicrats all.

This is from God. This is the end of human misrule of earth. Soon, God’s Government will be here, but first, . . .

a time that will make WWII look like a poorly done dress rehearsal. Soon, we will be stabbing each other at the corner store in a bombed out neighborhood, to get the last candy bar.

This isn’t goodbye, but this nation’s demise will usher in worldwide tyranny. Say goodbye to electricity, running water, food on demand, and easy to shave and shower accommodations.

Hope to be posting again, like later, or tomorrow, but . . .

ya nevah know.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on November 3, 2014 at 4:02 pm

    Hello Alfredo from the Land of Rita Moreno yes, we are living at the end of the this current system of things on the earth. Wasn’t 1914 a very significant date in Bible prophecy?

    And, yes, at the end “each man’s hand will come up against his brother”… but we can stay out of it.

    Jesus said: “And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the earth as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”

    Isn’t the God of Abraham, the true God, reaching out to everyone, telling them to stand clear, to come to Him, the true Refuge, and be “no part” of the world?

    I was out there with some of my siblings yesterday, on a heartbreakingly beautiful Autumn morning, trying to tell people this.

    And, Debbie (if you read all your replies) you are right when you say that it will make no difference if the Republican party replaces the Democrats in the Senate.

    How could it, if the same hands pull the strings? Ephesians 6:12 warns us: “…we have a struggle, not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places.”

    The wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places are in control at e moment. Which is why we need the Kingdom of God, “the kingdom of priests and holy nation”. Daniel 2:44 tells us that it will “crush and put an end to” all human government, and it itself will stand forever.

    Under Kingdom rule the earth will be restored to Paradise, and obedient humankind to perfection. And “many of those asleep in the ground of dust” will be woken from the dreamless sleep of death.

    I hope my parents will wake up the. I hope I will be there to see it – I hope we all will. Its an “undeserved kindness”, so we can all hope.

    sue on November 5, 2014 at 3:39 am

      I see lower-case sue is back proselytizing.

      skzion on November 5, 2014 at 10:49 am

        Thanks for the warm welcome sk, but don’t worry, I am able to totter about from door to door now as my Knew Knees come on-line. So I won’t have so much time on the internet.

        However, re Alfredo from the Land of the Lovely Rita and his point about the system of things coming to an end, isn’t that what the Hebrew Scriptures tell us?

        What about Daniel 2:44, for instance?

        Of course, I don’t know what you feel about the Hebrew Scriptures. I believe they are exactly what their writers claim they are – the Inspired word of the Creator, the God of Abraham.

        sue on November 5, 2014 at 4:02 pm

If the Senate Republicans will not have a veto-proof majority of course most of those things will not get done. If you had any brains you’d know the President is still a Democrat. Duh!

ForeverKiller on November 3, 2014 at 4:20 pm

McConnell lied recently about the 60 votes thing, forget what the issue was. The Constitutionality of it actually works out to only 51 votes being needed. Our employees have flipped the table on us. It’s over, America is gone, Debbie called it 100%, bull’s eye, right through the middle.

And THAT means, . . .

we’re doomed. Goodbye. Hopefully, just as long as wires are connected, if it’s not goodbye until The Age of The Lord. But if so, it’s because this will be the last act of betrayal toward the American people. It’s because of how the Republicans are going to take this opportunity to stick the last knife in Uncle Sam’s back.

Ted Cruz is The Last Man Standing, . . .

and he will be brought down by Satanic forces.

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, . . .


Alfredo from Puerto Rico on November 3, 2014 at 4:26 pm

That’s why I’m not voting.

Debbie and I think alike.

Nothing will change next year.

I’ve no expectations of the GOP.

NormanF on November 3, 2014 at 4:36 pm

I disagree with Debbie on this one. Karl Rove and Ann Coulter have absolutely assured me that the Republicans will make for a dynamic and dramatic dragonism and depuration in the US. When have they ever been wrong or mislead the public about anything?

Ralph Adamo on November 3, 2014 at 5:12 pm

    I agree with Debbie but I can’t stand Harry Reid. If Mitch McDollars is as bad as they say, I’d still rather see a NEW creep than Reid.

    Harry Reid is just downright ICKY. If Mitch McDollars turns out to be as bad, we can throw him outtoo. In the meantime, I’m all for a change in the Senate leadership whether it makes a difference or not.

Republican House! Republican Senate! Jeb Bush 2016! Happy days are here again!!

Good times, Ralph Adamo, good times!

Barry Popik on November 3, 2014 at 5:16 pm

It only underscores that in this situation, there is no ‘X bad, Y good’ but rather ‘X bad, but Y even worse’.

“Mitch McConman.” Clever. Up there with a nickname coined by a “conservative” columnist for the House Speaker – “John Bonehead.” Alas, both would be apt in their cases.

ConcernedPatriot on November 3, 2014 at 5:19 pm

Yes, it is true. Nothing is going to change when most republicans are making love to their demoncat partners. We’ve got maybe two or three that are worth a damn and that’s it. The truth is that most of the republican rat traitor basts from hell agree with Ferguson ring-leader, Chump Obama. They just want the Kenyan to take the fall for it. Kids being born today (the few we are actually having) will be out-voted in every election. They will be dumped on beyond belief. A despised and hated minority. Thanks you republican MFers.

Ferpy on November 3, 2014 at 5:31 pm

Can’t argue with reason. But I’d still like to see Peters out of a job, and the nerd as well after his blatant contract gifting to his peeps and the failed programs that have freed inmates via the MPRI program, privatizing the food service program employing inmate lovers bringing them in weapons and drugs as well as sexual favors. Prisons are supposed to be there as deterrents and if they are not, then law and order isn’t happening. Which is what we have now. Recidivism is not a popular topic, usually involves the racial stuff which on that subject none are comfortable except the most racial among us like the justice brothers. The nerd and his bridge building has been relegated to nothing covered lately as well.

samurai on November 3, 2014 at 5:33 pm

Debbie, I disagree with your characterization here of the GOP as ‘do nothing’. This sounds akin to the left’s mantra of the Do-nothing GOP. This while Harry lets nothing but trash pass through the Senate. Both the GOP and the DNC get things done. But, the self-serving activities that both parties complete just leave us bickering amongst ourselves. They’ve perfected the monkey-in-the-middle.

nadie on November 3, 2014 at 5:46 pm

True, but voting democrat is NOT an option.

john on November 3, 2014 at 6:09 pm

It is a failure to launch.

Worry on November 3, 2014 at 6:10 pm

Nobody believes that a GOP victory will reverse the trajectory that Obama has allowed the Democrats to plot.
Obami 1 Kenya OG has been their very own Star Wars defence shield and they’d be eternally grateful if they were a grateful bunch which they aren’t.
This is only about managing decline.
It’s the GOP raison d’être these days.
They want to show they can not only manage it but own it.
Do you want the Democrats doing the driving or do you want the Republicans stepping on the brakes a little bit?
That’s all this is about.

japple on November 3, 2014 at 6:55 pm

It will never change on either side we need a third party that has real morals and has only 2 priorities defending the Constitution and People of United States !!!!!

randall on November 3, 2014 at 7:53 pm

Our Sunday church guest speaker was Ted Cruz’s father. I hope our exempt status isn’t pulled ????

Darrell L. Hicks on November 3, 2014 at 8:12 pm

The malaise facing our country will not be solved at the ballotbox.

While it’s good fun to rip into the Rs for not being real alternatives to the Ds, how else could it be? Politicians dance to the tunes set by the electorate. The “conservative” base in America today isn’t all that conservative. They talk a good game. But when the rubber meets the road, they are much more liberal than they care to admit.

And conservatives, including these faux-conservatives, are being out-muscled by the growing number of liberals. Whether born in the no-information voter ranks of black Americans, or the imported third-world populations with considerably third-world world-views of politics (that support Ds and liberalism).

Politicians are a reflection of the people they are representing. If we are honest, would a real conservative even come close to winning any office worth mentioning? One that talked about removing all welfare, corporate as well? One that believed in scaling back the Central Government, along with it’s ill-gotten powers? That believed in returning to the states their power? That believed America should not be spending more on her military than the next 26 nations COMBINED, when 25 of those nations are allies? That believed SCOTUS does not make the laws of the land, that the President does not declare wars, that Congress is derelict in not doing it’s job and should be held accountable for it?

Blaming the politicians isn’t the solution. But the answers are far more complicated than that. So it’s what wins the days in the Conservative Talk Mafia.

PitandPen on November 3, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    PitandPen, I can’t agree with you that “the people” are necessarily in line with what political elites, specifically elected ones, are doing. In fact, the elected ones run mainly based on party. If elites collude to suppress party differences on certain “Grand Issues” such as open borders and Islam, “the people” are sharply limited in what they can do.

    There is every reason to believe that even the Dem mass is far less sympathetic to open borders than the Rep elected elite. I strongly suspect that the mass generally is much less sympathetic to Islam than the elites are.

    Thus, the challenge is to make these issues “partisan” so that party competition kicks in. I’ll say again that a Republican could win the presidency by pulling white Democratic voters to vote Republican based on immigration policy. I also have no doubt that Islam is an issue that could easily be used for political gain. Like, uh, campaigning on ending Muslim movement to the US, whether by immigration or by work or education visa.

    While a decent position on immigration would have almost zero negative consequence in the electorate, an anti-Muslim spin would perhaps be a bit more dangerous. But surely SOME implementation (like no more “refugees”) would be overwhelmingly positive.

    skzion on November 5, 2014 at 3:28 pm


I agree with you but I don’t care. Harry Reid just grosses me out.

If I’m going to suffer through more of the same (as I’m certain i will) let it be with some new creep. I’m sick of the same old creep harry Reid.

We have the best government petrodollars can buy. It won’t change if Mitch McDollars becomes Senate Leader.

DS_ROCKS! on November 3, 2014 at 10:07 pm

I don’t care if Mitch McDollars is better or worse than Harry Reid. I’m so sick of Reid. Throw Reid out!

if McDollars can’t get the job done, we can throw him out too.

There is NO Santa Claus on November 3, 2014 at 11:18 pm

I like the conservative Ted Cruz, as a person and as a leader. There are two things I totally do not understand about him: he thinks Nelson Mandela was great and he doesn’t take a stand against Islam.

Matthys van Raalten on November 4, 2014 at 1:57 am

Am I missing something? Congress already has a consensus to oppose the president on anything he tries to pass. Absolutely nothing is being accomplished. Its the reason the president doesn’t try. He’s said “to hell with it.” So when I see comments saying “Repubs must stop the president” I think they have already succeeded.

@ Forever Killer- You’re lost.

@ Japple – Gets it.

I thought people would really wake up, when Roberts upheld O.B. Care, but no, people remain asleep. Thinking one side is going to do this and that. The truth is, they are both working towards the same goal (whatever it may be) You people who disagree with Debbie on this article, it is certainly your right, but she is really just trying to save you some time that you can’t get back, so why squander it at the voting polls? Take heed my brethren and sistren! Take Heed.

MrBigBrain on November 4, 2014 at 2:00 am

    BTW I do recommend people vote for McConnell and even kiss his lilly white porky bi-partisan butt if they have any instinct for self preservation.
    After this all bets are off though.

    japple on November 4, 2014 at 3:46 pm

    McConnel is the bi-partisan’s bi-partisan and don’t let anybody ever tell you any different.

    japple on November 4, 2014 at 3:49 pm


I love sniffing butt-crack!

kirche61 on November 4, 2014 at 5:45 am

All 537 elected politicians in DC are Federal Employees — that is all they are and all they care about is maintaining their power and control. They do not care about you or me, unless you happen to be a Federal employee also. D or R, same coin, different side, same goal, damn near worthless as money.

RA2216 on November 4, 2014 at 7:16 am

I agree that the Republicans are not a lot better than the Democrats.
BUT there wouldn’t have even been an Obamacare if the Republicans controlled both houses of Congress back when it passed.
Plus I do believe that with a Republican Senate Obama does scale back his liberal judge choices some.
So they are a little better and I’ll take a little better any day of the week.

Steve G on November 4, 2014 at 7:57 am

The Ruling Class has stacked the deck. As Freedom Works says in their ad, it’s Washington against US. EmbalmerCare is here to stay. Virtually none of the Frankenstein created programs in D.C. ever goes away. They only grow and fester, like the cancers they are.

Esser Agaroth on November 4, 2014 at 8:57 am

just like obambola has shown us the true face of lefty’s, boehner has shown us the true face of est. repubs… add to that the mutual dem-repub attacks on the tea party – a party that closely aligned with the will of conservative, patriotic americans with A judeo-christian derived moral base – was all of the evidence needed to show us the future of our nation.

kirche on November 4, 2014 at 10:13 am

    Those exact points are why we are finished, kirche. This is from God. The Constitution has been used to toast marshmallows. The two parties have converged to form an ensemble theater company, much like Islam. One team may love to kick the other’s ass 56-3 in “the big game,” but the end game is to crush forces outside the game.

    Muslims may kill other Muslims because they are factionalized, warlike, unreasonable, and brain damaged, but they hate the United States, Israel and all Jews most of all.

    The Demmicans and Republicrats have all made a deal with The Devil. That would be that they agree they both hate the spirit and principles on which this country has founded. Both parties actually agree on “fundamental transformation.” And that means they have agreed to end The Great Experiment, and become like the rest of the world. Soon, the political elite will become The Political Elite.

    And then, worldwide tyranny. There is no Second Coming of Ronald Reagan. The time has nearly come for The Great Tribulation, . . .

    which is terribly frightening. The time is coming, which most except the very oldest Americans will live through, that will leave people crawling in the streets looking for a crust of bread. Americans, no food, no water, no toilets, no friends, no infrastructure, no services. The will of the people has been broken, and we are now serfs.

    Jack, thanks for that link. CIS is a worthwhile organization. I own and have read the first book by its founder.

    S: Unfortunately, I caught CIS plagiarizing my scoops on immigration and when I complained to Mark Krikorian of the group, he treated me like crap. Since they ripped me off, you can bet they rip others off, as well. And they raise millions off of our work. Worthwhile? Only if robbery is worthwhile. It isn’t. DS

      This is very unfortunate news, Debbie.

      skzion on November 5, 2014 at 10:53 am

Voted this morning.
No on Pot.
No on Penny Tax for “Light Rail.”
Voted for one Republican, Governor.
Voted for Libertarian for Congress; after current Republicrat was compromised by NRCC (Jeb Bush) and suddenly went “quiet” on promises of “repeal” of Obama Care, quiet on “immigration reform,” and has yet to send out a “weekly update” of ANYTHING of substance- glad to see he sent a letter to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to plead to them to change their adoption laws *sniff sniff*, gripped and grinned with an Eagle Scout, addressed “Seniors” on SSI, blah blah blah….
What exactly is the difference between Debbie Castor and David Jolly? Double entendre??
One cannot go back to sleep once they have truly awakened. I think for the mose part, we are all on the same sheet of music. We are all “Charlie Brown” attempting to kick a football….”Arrrrrggghhh…”
never did like “Lucy.”

Sick_Boy on November 4, 2014 at 10:49 am

I doubt the Rs will pick up enough seats to get rid of Reid (which is the only R campaign slogan I have heard).

If they do, great. Debbie you are correct that it will make little difference with McConnell and Boehner.

However, the Demoncrats will not let the Senate go without Acorn,, and other organizations getting out the illegal vote in favor of the Ds. Just like Chicago. I grew up there. I know.

BTW two critical races in Texas and Florida are for Governor. They have received some national attention: Abbot is in a wheel chair and Crist likes Obama.

In 2016 the Rs need to run on a conservative platform and nominate a conservative candidate to run against Hillary. They have nothing to lose. If they run a McCain/Romney look a like or worse Christie, they will lose big time.

That example is a reason why I am skeptical of the Rs taking the Senate.

Panhandle on November 4, 2014 at 10:57 am

Our lives depend on it.

marlene on November 4, 2014 at 11:12 am

Like you Debbie, I agree on the past blase’ policy pronouncements from the Republicrats as no different from the Demtards, but Cruz will have the guts to voice conservative policy advancement and the electorate will speak out ! I believe with the complete dissatisfaction with Obama from the conservative base watching, this will compel McConnell to govern differently. AND with Ted Cruz voicing his anger as they try to legislate as usual it will rile the base and make McConnell to govern more to the right. That’s the ONLY way I see of anything changing.

John Collignon on November 4, 2014 at 12:16 pm

I’m not voting either. In fact, this is what I posted on my FB page this morning:

This will surprise many. I have never missed an election in my life. I have always proudly gone to the polling place and voted for what I thought were conservative candidates. I woke up this morning with absolutely NO desire to go to the polling place. How we vote won’t make a difference anyway. They are ALL, with the exception of Ted Cruz, in Washington to fill their wallets and take home the pork. The elections are rigged and rife with fraud. If the Republicans win, they will NOT close the border, they will not eliminate or repair Obamacare. If the Republicans win, they will put McMyrtle in as head of the Senate because he has “seniority” and “it’s his turn.” They will do NOTHING! The days of Ronald Reagan and J.C. Watts are long gone. There will be no damage control from Washington. There will only be more millionaires made.

Linda Kilbride on November 4, 2014 at 12:16 pm

What about Ron Paul? Isn’t he doing his best to End The Fed? He was against Obamacare. He was against NDAA. He was against Patriot Act. Or maybe he is somehow a sellout according to Debbie?

A.S. on November 4, 2014 at 1:27 pm

    Ron Paul has stepped down. He is no longer in Congress.

    Primetime on November 4, 2014 at 9:49 pm

It is worse for State Health Care under Dayton than Pawlenty. Fewer beds, fewer nurses, more strict formulary, fewer allowed workups on patients allowed.

I voted straight GOP in Minnesota. Both are incompetent vermin who truckle to terrorists, but one group lowers my taxes. However, Democrats are a lock to retake the State of Minnesota.

Occam's Tool on November 4, 2014 at 2:30 pm

I truly wish that Moses, Aaron, King David, or King Soloman would have been on the ballot. Any of these men would have gotten a lot more accomplished.

The Confederate on November 4, 2014 at 3:01 pm

The Dems and Reps are a virtual one party system that only seeks to maintain the status quo and stay in power. Every election cycle they finger point at each other and we buy into there good cop/bad cop act and vote for them. Nothing will change doing things the Rep and Dem way. I’m voting straight Libertarian until things change for the good, bad, or otherwise.

myother on November 4, 2014 at 3:23 pm

Debbie needs to get a grip or else in 2 years she’ll dig this reasoning back up to explain why voting for Republicans won’t work. Let’s get the Senate then hold their feet to the fire.

C: Um, I already do have a grip, and I’m telling you RIGHT NOW (not in 2 years) that voting for Republicans doesn’t work. Voting for conservatives and demanding them from the GOP as candidates DOES work. When you do that, you will get conservatives. Until you do, they will continue to take your sheeple-esque defeatist surrender vote for the GOP for granted and continue to instead chase after minorities, liberal single women, and amnesty-supporting Hispanics. You are playing the easy girlfriend. Try playing hard to get. It will get you somewhere. Your attitude won’t, which is why you’ve been served up a series of moderates–Romney, McCain, George W. Bush, etc. DS

carter on November 4, 2014 at 4:35 pm

This is spot on. Obamacare is not going away, amnesty will be passed and homosexual marriage will be the law of the land. Sure, republicans will come out and say they’re against it and they’re working on walking it back, but golly. It’s already in place and just too hard to do completely away with or do anything about.

Pot’s going to be legalized and we’re going to have some large scale gun control in the next 10 years (or less).

The Supreme Court was lost when Obamacare was upheld (if not a long, long time ago going back to reconstruction after the Civil War).

Ruckus_Tom on November 4, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    My comment was in response to Debbie’s … not carter.

    Ruckus_Tom on November 4, 2014 at 9:21 pm

“You’re on crack…” You might be on something else also, but I don’t think it would be bud. I smoked a joint a little while ago but am under no illusion that the Republicans can, or will, or have any intention of stopping ObaMao.

I did vote this morning. The joint this afternoon was an attempt to forget about the “charlie-foxtrot” that was going on at the polling place while I was in there.

In the Republican primaries I always vote as Conservative as possible. But in Minnesota I just could not stomach letting the Democrats get re-elected without voting against them.

I agree—the GOP is pathetic. But the alternative is too horrifying to contemplate.

And here in MN Dayton has been reelected, as has Franken. And the Dem is winning in NW Minnesota Congressional races, too.

I do love my job, though. Otherwise I would move to ND.

You’re right Debbie. No matter which party wins control of the house and senate, the American people lose as our constitutional republic is transitioned into a banana republic. Both McConnell and Boehner are NWO/Obama butt kissers. The nation will continue its slide into the crapper under the present leadership.

California had a record low in voter turnout. That is how disenchanted people have become. One big community of “Meh”

Basically this article is saying we should just get rid of the senate and while we are at it the rest of the federal government. The USA experiment has failed.

Jefferson, though a Deist, was steeped enough in the Judeo-Christian worldview that he understood human nature for what it is, and therefore he understood the proclivity of those in positions of power to to accrete ever more of it at the expense of the liberties of the people. He wrote many proverb-like aphorisms warning about this. Someone has said we get the government we deserve. That is, the soil of the culture determines what can grow and thrive in it. We are merely reaping the fruit of an attack on the Judeo-Christian worldview and ethos that began in the early to mid 1800s in Germany and has steadily spread and saturated western culture, moving from the university to the seminary to the novel, the movies and the kindergarten. My hope is not here, but I do believe in fighting the good fight, and mitigating evil where and when I can. I suspect this is where Debbie’s head is at, too.
