Now we just have to wait and see if anything changes for the better overall, or just shift the crap from one hand to the other.
Already the Democrats are foaming at the mouth, first thing up is increase of minimum wage, and talk of Tax changes! Think those tax changes are not going to cost us all more, for no better return? Then there is a big bridge for sale in New York.
They all suck in the overall, no matter which party is in power. Some good people in any party, but the percentage unfortunately is pretty low. Wish there was some way to just get rid of the party system completely, and just get the best PEOPLE working for us. Sure is not going to happen though. No matter which party is in power, we get a few good people with many crappy ones riding in on their coat tails. In my opinion, the party system is enforcing mediocrity of government.
The Dems floated in basically because of our dissatisfaction with the Iraq/Afganistan issues, but what are we getting in return for the change? Only time will tell, but my bet is that it won't be "better" in the overall sense. We may get some satisfaction as far as the war(s) are concerned, but you better believe we will pay for it in some other way, which will become the new battle ground for 2012. It never stops, does it?
Hope I am wrong, but certainly not betting on it.
