Americun Dream... Got me a fridge, TV and a wife and all three work.
If the democrats didn't get the message sent they are stupid! There were a lot of republican wins and I believe with the specific purpose of getting the attention of President Obama and Congress! Now if they want to keep pushing their agenda and ignoring the will of the people, they will lose elections. I'm not saying the republicans will change much, but maybe both the democrats and republicans will see that we are not going to reward bad behavior anymore. They can serve a single term and ingore us, or do the right thing and stay.
I think Westchester county results were big too, we even got mentioned on Rush today. For the first time ever an incumbent county executive was defeated. The county went 58-42 for Rob Astorino (R) vs. Andy Spano (D, C, WF), and last year it went for Obama 63-36. I think a lot of people are tired of ever increasing county spending. Spano raised spending from $800 million 12 years ago to $1.8 billion now. We're the highest tax county in the country.
Astorino has his work cut out for him, but I'm hopeful that he will at least help to curb the rate of growth in our taxes (60% over the last 7 years).
I'm all for cutting wasteful spending and keeping taxes reigned in, but communities have lost so many businesses that contributed to the tax base that they have few alternatives. I'm not talking about small businesses burdened by taxes unfairly, but the big well established businesses that the towns and cities depended on for years either going belly up or moving to mexico or abroad. It's a visious cycle, communities lose tax revenue from big business and nowadays property taxes, so they raise taxes on the remaining tax payers forcing them to either payup or move. That is not a solution, or smart temporary fix, we need to grow our productivity and economy with real businesses and jobs. We need to make things people consume and keep our economy rich in American dollars. I know some folks get touchy when I mention communist china, but they are not making the USA rich with their money! Turn the tide of trade or kiss your economy and standard of living goodbye! Electing between two political parties that are doing nothing to correct the problems that got us in this mess won't get us back from the brink. Healthcare reform is important, but how can it be more important than unemployment? Our economy is bleeding out.
The more sane Republicans are being forced into a corner by people like Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin. No one in office dares speak out against the members of the party on the extreme right. It is destroying the party.
I was original registered Republican now I sit waiting for a party that is worth getting behind.
