My sister straightens out my thinking this morning as I was flapping my gums about the results of the elections.
I’ve been thinking along the lines that resistance and revolution are part of out national DNA; that when something unpopular is shoved down the people’s throat, the people fight back.
Not so, said my sister. We live in a system of checks and balances. When the government and elected officials ignore the checks and balances, the voters step up and restore the checks and balances.
Could she be correct?
Hear in Colorado, Senator Uterus went down to defeat even with his wardrobe of cowboy boots, Wranglers, and big belt buckle.
Looks like Gov. Wishywashy will be reelected, but the close vote won’t give him a mandate. Look for more flip flopping.
Last year the Democrat controlled Senate got onerous firearms laws passed. Next session, control goes to the Republicans.
Seems there is plenty of humble pie to go around today.
