The Stalwart GOP Prevails

Biden’s poll number dropping. 14+ Democrat Representatives won’t run for re-election. Pundits crowing about a midterm GOP victory. Good news? Not to the Republicans, IMO. They are very comfortable being the “loyal opposition”; just not too oppositional.  

Being in charge means being responsible. Means becoming a target. Oh, WSF, you are delusional.  OK, what were the “Never Trumpers”? Why wasn’t a National Concealed Reciprocity Act passed? (Break the NRA’s Rice Bowl?) Much more comfortable to sit back, criticize, raise money and deliver enough financial bennies to your buddies to keep being re-elected. Nice cushy life with immense financial rewards.

At the Colorado State level, I fully expect the GOP to find ways to fuck up and leave us with p.o.s. like this one still in office. She isn't up for reelection for another two years giving the Democrats ample opportunity to corrupt elections.

Enough, already. How about a little humor from a favorite cartoon strip?

What is the difference between a white rat and a black rat? That is the essential difference between a republican and a democrat. They both lap at the very same deep state trough. They share the same table. They bullshit their constituents, pandering loudly to whatever they want to hear while pursuing agendas that will increase their own personal power and their financial war chest (which they keep when they leave office one day).

President Trump upset the applecart, even going so far as to personally renegotiate the price that USGOV was paying for F-35's (heresy). And there you go.

Perhaps President Trump's lasting legacy will be the 500 or so judges appointed to the courts during his term. He seemed to pick ones with courage and commitment.

Perhaps the only way to break the cycle is term limits. that has kept Colorado from becoming a complete cesspool. Don't see it happening at the Federal level.
