The Democrats have invaded the senate and the house of representatives. This is a sad day for this country. You may be wondering why I would say such a thing but keep reading and I'll let you in on a few of the facts I know of.
The Democrats have no intention of renewing the tax cuts that George Bush and the Republican congress put into place. That hard earned paycheck that you and I get will be a little slimmer thanks to the spending by our esteemed representatives in Washington DC. In a world where every penny counts either today or for the future, spending my paycheck on government programs is not an idea that I cherish.
Part of the spending that the Democrats would like to do is on federally funded stem cell research. They would like to give money for this "special interest" in hopes of finding a cure for some of the world's worst diseases. Sounds great doesn't it? Fact of the matter is that the Democrats would spend our tax money to support businesses that abort fetuses to do research on. This could lead to women intentionally conceiving with the notion of selling off the fetus for the purpose of experimentation. That is just plain sick! This is especially when you consider that there are viable alternatives such as using the stem cells from an umbilical cord or the use of adult stem cells. The pro-choice jackasses would rather kill off the future of this country than consider the alternatives.
Today after much debate on the war in Iraq and those leading this country in it, Donald Rumsfeld has issued his resignation. For almost a year now the Democrats have called for his resignation. It's a sad day when a man that has had such success on the war front in a foreign country can't keep his job at home because the other political party is playing "Monday morning quarterback". The Dems. have even admitted that they aren't sure what to do in Iraq. They just don't want to continue down the path that we are on. President Bush has been misunderstood in his "stay the course" strategy and the Dems. are trying to brainwash the American public into believing that he was meaning we should continue doing what we are doing whether we get anywhere with it or not. His point in his "stay the course" rhetoric was that we should continue until we know that Iraq has a secure government and can survive as an independent nation. This would mean using whatever strategy was necessary to accomplish these objectives.
With the Dems. now in control of congress we can look forward to gridlock. Very little legislation is going to get by the presidents veto pen and very little legislation introduced by the president or any of the Republicans remaining in congress is going to get through congress. The only good thing about all of this is that it could possibly mean less government, and we could all use a little less of that.
Keep in mind that I don't have a crystal ball with which to predict the future. Could bipartisanship actually work out between the president and congress? Of course it could but it's highly unlikely. We've seen the end results of this same scenario before. Let's just hope for the best.
