Republicans in control

Ok, admittingly I'm not the most politically educated person, but I am trying to understand what going on and how everything works so please bear with me.

Republicans are now in control, but is it the Tea Party Republicans or what?

What does this mean with dealing with Obama now?

Shrimp'n ain't easy....

It's complicated. Nothing becomes law unless it makes it through the house. With the help of the "tea party", republicans now control the house.

Son, I don't need life lessons. Do you have suggestions or just negativity? If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

You're right about it starting somewhere, but that somewhere isn't the Republican party. If these two parties REALLY were against each other we'd see them tear up the UN treaties that were signed when the other party was in office. We'd see the dismantling of the FED, we'd see REAL changes, positive changes, but nothing like that will happen until we get rid of this carrot they dangle in front of us all that keeps us divided. The left and right wing belong to the same bird that just keeps flying us further up the river.

It means obama will get 4 more years if their policy makes the economy falter more in the next 2 years.

It means gridlock, which is the best thing that can happen. You don't want the fucktards, either right or left, passing their agenda without challenge. You have seen what the Democrat fucktards can do when they have complete control. I'd rather have Sarah Palin as president at this point. Jesus.

Here's what it means..

1. Obamacare is still law and isn't going to be repealed.
2. Cap and Trade is dead (huzzah!)
3. Immigration reform is most likely dead
4. No changes to the bullshit going on, on Wall Street.
5. Nancy Pelosi is fucked (and not in a good way). Her own party is going to treat her like the bitch that she is.

There is only one way we get improvements on this Obamacare shit. We won't be able to get it repealed but there might be enough moderate/conservative Democrats in the Senate to work on fixing a lot of the bullshit in that law. Maybe enough people there to override a veto.

Because we have a Democratic President and Republican House I think we have a really decent chance of seeing spending cuts very quickly...

There is a decent chance that the Bush tax cuts WILL expire. Obama's people hinted that they were ready to negotiate but who knows how far that will actually go. I think they said they were willing to make the tax cuts permanent for anyone making less than $250K if the Republicans let other tax cuts expire. I think there is some wiggle room there but I don't have a lot of confidence in anything getting done this year..

If an economy is propped up from govt spending, what do you think will happen if you take it away ?


The govt and FED are only prolonging the inevitable.

In theory you are correct, but we are in a little bit different environment from 1994 compared to now.



How will getting nothing accomplished in the next 2 years help the economy improve ?


Republican will block spending and tax increases.

obama will veto anything against his agenda.

So basically it's just alot of posturing right now?

Any idea how split the Republican party is? Is it enough to keep them from getting anything done at all without bickering among themselves?


Another thing I'm confused about - Ron Paul's son whom I understand is a big liberal, won a seat as a Republican, how does that happen?

His son is not a liberal, he's a libertarian that ran on the rep ticket. He's a good guy.

When government isn't doing anything it is a great time for ingenuitive people to do something. If it collapses, so be it. If we had let it fall when it was "naturally" going to fall, we would be in for a much shorter economic upturn. Expanded government control and stimulus spending is poised to drown us in a lengthy recession, as it is now.

You guys still don't get it.... the Republicrats don't care who you vote for.

They have the same agenda! Their agenda is to have you broke as hell so they can live high on the hog.

They like to split hairs on gays in the military, gay marriage and abortion to keep you all distracted.

Every one of those fools agreed to the stimulus which took trillions from honest hard working people and gave it to GS and JPM.

Get a clue before it's too late.

You need to vote out every single incumbent regardless of party. You need to do it over and over and don't allow career politicians until the idiots get it in their heads who they work for.

You are all tools for the united Republicrats. On any issue that will rob you blind, they have complete bipartisanship.

Their fights are just for TV and to confuse you easily confused and largely undereducated and totally unobservant people.

Putting Harry Reid back in office is the equivalent of giving all your money to Barry Madoff.

Pay attention to the Feds new plan. Do you see either party trying to stop this shell game?

LOL! Again, I don't need a fucking "life-lesson" from anyone here. If you don't see "changes" maybe you aren't looking.

Obamacare will not be funded. Probably not repealed, but it will be cut off at the knee's. I love how 30-year-olds tell me "how my life has changed".

There were 23 republicans added to the Texas house. This will have a dramatic impact on cuts in education and social services. They also insure us from having a state income tax. There's more to these elections than just national implications.

Props to Col Allen West (Ret) for winning in Florida. The first black man (especially a conservative) to hold that seat since the 1800's.

i have survived them all since nixon . i've seen mortgage rates at 16.5 . i've watch gov try to fix business many times. have yet to see it work. what i do see is this fucked up bunch we have now on the verge of killing investment and growth. you can do two things with money. you can pay tax on it or reinvest which usually comes with some added jobs. now if you take the tax incentives away there is no reinvestment which means no growth or new jobs. they will simply find a way to get the money out of here into a friendlier place. also known as outsourcing .

personally i'd like to see ever necktie wearing bastard in washington unemployed. especially any dumb fuck who voted for obamacare. unless they can muster the votes to kill the majority of this Marxist bullshit we are in for hard times. we have not seen the outcome of this shit but we will soon. until we get a gov that has the balls to insist on an even trading ground we will never get out of this. we need to tell china to go fuck themselves unless they stop holding their money down to take away mfg . same fucking thing japan did. we are the largest consumer on the planet. we close our wallets for 1 week and the world goes into a panic. fuck obama , we need to use our buying power. it is the most awesome weapon we have.

oh well just wanted to get my fuck obama and his girlfriend gpampers in .

You're right. The current state of education is perfectly fine. Nothing wrong with it at all! Dumbass.


There is wasteful, pointless spending in education just like there is everything else govt touches.

The Republicans control 1 out of the 3 parts of the system and you think the Republicans will be responsible if the economy continues to falter like it has the last 2 years when the liberals had full control? Damn, you make gpamp look conservative.

I expect more accountability for Republicans to be as conservative as they said they would be to get elected. The Tea Party has made that possible. The Republicans who have prospered by going back and forth between voting with the liberals (RINO's) and going conservative will have to choose. Do what you said they were going to do to get elected or get a strong candidate to run against you in the primary.

It was pointed out that a bunch of so-called moderate Democrats were voted out. Yeah, how moderate were they if they towed the liberal Obama line? The liberal Democrats now have to choose to do what their constituents want or back obama and risk getting targeted in the next election. This will be an interesting next few years IMO.

personally i'd like to see ever necktie wearing bastard in washington unemployed. especially any dumb fuck who voted for obamacare. unless they can muster the votes to kill the majority of this Marxist bullshit we are in for hard times. we have not seen the outcome of this shit but we will soon. until we get a gov that has the balls to insist on an even trading ground we will never get out of this. we need to tell china to go fuck themselves unless they stop holding their money down to take away mfg . same fucking thing japan did. we are the largest consumer on the planet. we close our wallets for 1 week and the world goes into a panic. fuck obama , we need to use our buying power. it is the most awesome weapon we have.

oh well just wanted to get my fuck obama and his girlfriend gpampers in .

Every one of those fools agreed to the stimulus which took trillions from honest hard working people and gave it to GS and JPM.

Get a clue before it's too late.

You need to vote out every single incumbent regardless of party. You need to do it over and over and don't allow career politicians until the idiots get it in their heads who they work for.

You are all tools for the united Republicrats. On any issue that will rob you blind, they have complete bipartisanship.

Their fights are just for TV and to confuse you easily confused and largely undereducated and totally unobservant people.

Putting Harry Reid back in office is the equivalent of giving all your money to Barry Madoff.

Pay attention to the Feds new plan. Do you see either party trying to stop this shell game?
If you can't see the difference between someone like Paul Ryan and Charlie Rangle then you need to hire a tow truck to pull your head out of your ass.

Now, you tell me, using common sense, would handing them ever larger amounts of money help or hinder getting that done?

Bullet doesn't get it, and it's a typical liberal response, even if he claims to NOT be liberal. Just throwing money at a problem DOES NOTHING. Guys like this bitch about spending, but whine like a girl when someone pulls the trigger on making cuts.
The federal government needs to get out of the education business. It should be a state issue ONLY.

Bullet has always been a lover of any kind of spending by the government. I wonder why he doesn't just send them all of his money since it will be put to such a good use?

Throwing money at education hasn't worked yet. For example, we are in the top 3 on per student spending:

Yet, U.S. student scores are not better than countries that spend less:

My wife works at a high school, and you would be shocked at the shit that goes on there.

No, I really wouldn't be shocked. Those assholes waste all kinds of money. And then cry about funding and blame that for their shitty fucking performance.

They can start by shit-canning the free breakfast and lunch programs. Mama drops them off in the Lexus in time for me to buy them bacon, eggs, and sausage. Fuck that.

Shit, I don't even care about that, those are penny issues. I just want to see the schools run like a business. If the kids aren't getting educated then the management should be fired, top to bottom. Fire their fucking asses off the god damn roof and bring in someone who can get the job done. Instead, we play politics, just like in any other government job.

Another thing I'm confused about - Ron Paul's son whom I understand is a big liberal, won a seat as a Republican, how does that happen?
Mike Huckabee said it best when he noted that Obama's trip to India will cost tax payers $200 million dollars a day, which is a bargain compared to what he costs us when he's here.

Pelosi lost her job and the Democrats will have to listen to the Republicans now, those are the two most important things that happened in this election. Divided or not, they get a voice. The moderates and RINOs that are still in office know that they are on the chopping block next if they don't change their ways.

Rand Paul is going to be fiscally responsible, something most other senators aren't accustomed to. He, like his father, believes strongly in having a balanced budget and is strongly against deficit spending. He's a polar opposite of a liberal. He's also a doctor, not a career politician.

The governor and state races were more important to what's going on in the country though. States decide how voting districts are divided up and I can guarantee you that places like district 30 in Texas will be redrawn ASAP. Almost the entire state is red but that little district voted almost exclusively democrat.

It's amazing to me how so many shitty teachers get kicked upstairs to "administration" instead of kicked out into the parking lot.

Thanks for explaining some things. It's not easy to learn any of this stuff when the people who know are more busy arguing with eachother. lol.


Obama is on TV right now doing a press conference. He's obviously upset and even seems abit nervous. There also seems to be ALOT of backpeddling going along.

kind of hard to teach kids who go home to white trash parents who dont do shit . try a class room of 25 and see how far you get since most of your time is spent working on useless state mandated test that dont do squat . or trying to control some spoiled ass brat that disrupts class all day. fucking people today think teachers are free daycare . my bride is giving it up after 30 years of teaching first grade and i'll whip her ass if she even thinks of going back .

That's all he can do. Whether he likes it or not this election shows that the American people are not happy with their current government and they are doing everything they can to change it. Presidents are supposed to work with both parties, he basically refused to ever listen to conservatives and even alienated the supreme court.

On average presidents lose 28 seats in the house and 4 senators, Obama's government lost 58 seats in the house and 6 senators. Russ Feingold getting dumped, along with New Hampshire actually electing a Republican to something are the biggest wins. What's also important is that most of the elections in the NE parts of the country were close. Even Barbara Boxer had a tough election.

The rest of Obama's term is going to be interesting to put it mildly. On CNN last night they were saying that West Virginia is a good way to judge how the country will vote in the next presidental election. It's a state that typically votes democrat and came back strongly as republican this time. In short, their predicting no re-election for Obama and a new republican president.
