This country is fucked.
Yeah, it’s going to be a mess the next two years >_>
I think no matter the outcome, that result would still be true. DC is, no matter the party, fucked in and of itself.
You can’t honestly believe that. I refuse to believe it. Oh no! The Democrats have control of the House of Representatives! Run for your lives, children! No more tax and spend legislation! We’ll have to restore civil liberties to citizens! And partially pull out of the Middle East!
The horror. The horror.
(I’ll grant that if the Democrats had won both sides of the legislature, we would be in dire straits, but the Republicans have had six years to fuck up the country. Give the other team their at bat, and at least let them swing before you carry on like that.
No, it’s not. Haven’t you heard? Mid-term elections happened, and the pissed-off people voted the “Republicans” out of power.
I have a very hard time believing that you can think “Partial Democratic power means a Spiral of Death for the US”.
Seriously. I also can’t believe that, expecially after the last 2 years, you still think the party in charge is the party of Lincoln and really has the best intrests of the American people at heart.
Maybe by 2008, the party will have shunted it’s radical wackos to the backround and be respectable again. I mean, I can dream, right?
Well, I’ll be the first to say that I wasn’t rooting as rabidly as I have in years past for the Republicans maintaining control of Congress. They’ve done a lot of things in the past two years to not just turn off their base, but the entire country as a whole: the amnesty plan for illegal aliens (which actually now is likely to go through now that the Democrats are in charge of the house), attempting to sell our ports to a Middle Eastern country, the ballooning of the deficit after pledging to put a clamp on spending, the mishandling of Katrina (which really should go to the state and local governments as well, but hey – at least New Orleans didn’t put a horse farmer in charge of its emergency preparedness office), and the multitude of scandals that blew up in the party’s face (Jack Abramoff and Mark Foley leap to mind).
The problem is, while I’m not exactly wild about the GOP right now, the Democrats manage to be even worse. And it’s not just the fact that they have the majority that worries me – it’s who’s going to be in all the leadership positions now. If the words “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi” or “Judicial Committee Chairman Ted Kennedy” doesn’t scare the bejeezus out of you, it should.
So yeah, you’re right, the Republicans stunk up the joint the last two years. But that doesn’t mean I’m at all optimistic about what sort of mahyhem the Dems are likely to cause over the next two years. And you’d better pray to whatever deity you believe in that this antipathy towards the GOP doesn’t carry over into 2008 when Hillary Clinton tries to grab the reins of the country.
I have no more faith in New York State.
So, when the country decides to change power from what you agree with to what you don’t, it’s wrong?
i agree with the above comment. this country is not fucked.
The country would be fucked, no matter the party.
Both the GOP and the Dems are in a bad way right now. That’s why I’m a Libertarian.
That’s about right.
I haven’t paid too much attention to who wins the house.
Good luck USA for the next two years, I’ll be in Japan before the summer. 😛 (Along with Justin, yes. xD)
Do you realize that your response to that question makes you sound like a whiny child who is going to throw a fit because Mom won’t make the dinner that he wants, or worse? Do you really think that you know better than 300 million Americans? If that’s true (and I question whether it is true; personally I think it’s just a case of sourest grapes) then you ought to either be running for office or getting your own talk show on one of those cable networks, because your talents are underused counting out money.
Seriously. Look at that. Because the balance of power has shifted away from Republican rule, it’s wrong, and we’re screwed.
Seriously, get a hold of yourself.
And you just noticed this *now*?
