Republicans made historic gains by a proportion not seen in more than 70 years. Discuss???

"It's pretty clear that the Obama-Pelosi agenda's being rejected by the American people," ... "I think it's a mandate for Washington to reduce the size of government."
~John Boehner, Nov. 2010

In your opinion~
Do you see the results of the elections as a statement AGAINST Pelosi? Against Democrats? Against Obama? Any? All?
Do you see the results of the election as a statement for a fiscally responsible Federal Government?
Do you think the Republicans and Democrats are truly listening to the American People?

Those who campaigned against the Democratic agenda, will you continue to hold the House/DC accountable to such things as:
Read the Bills, Limit/Cut Federal Spending, Fully Analyze and Debate national energy tax (cap & trade), etc???

It doesn't stop here just because there is to be a Rep. lead house~ We need to see if they REALLY are, what they say they are~ Correct?

  • I just hope it ends all of their bitching. They have been screaming at the top of their lungs for almost 2 years now. Here's their chance to put their money where their mouth is. I have a feeling they're going to miss the time when they could just bitch and moan and blame, now they too have to be accountable and DO SOMETHING for ALL of us. Let's see it!!!

  • I believe in a balance of power. its not all about one party. we need balance and we need to make sure that one group of individuals do not turn america into something that it is not. ITS A GOOD DAY!

    Why is it the Federal Government's responsibility to DO SOMETHING for you? The Federal Government should promote opportunity for America to prosper, right?  Then it is YOUR responsibility to DO SOMETHING for YOU!!!  For you it seems to be about bitterness and NOT the American People.

  • It's a tea party movement aka a backwards mentality. The people were brainwashed to think the GOP will be bipartisan when we know they won't do jack sh*t especially for the people, only large corporations.


    SO, now we'll try the religious approach to run this country.... no more separation of church and state.

    Lets skip to the 7th commandant shall we?
    7. Thou shall not commit adultery

    Woot! This is going to be fun. We can send about half the Republican Party to jail right off the bat. They’ll have plenty of company, since a significant number of TV Ministers will be there too. The good news is that at least we’ll finally have something in common with the Iranians. Maybe we can get together for a good stoning.

    Gotta love the GOP and the tea party thinking!

    ~ Do you plan to voice your opinion to politicians and demand accountability? Afterall, they work for US, right? Or else (like last night~ we vote them OUT).... Or will you take more of a sit back, have a "what have you done for me" and bitch mentality?.. ;o)
