Don't Blow it Again in 2010!

I know that correlation does not imply causation, but the current economic problems started very shortly after Democrats took control of both houses of congress in 2006. Obviously, there were many contributing factors, but it was no coincidence, either. It was at that time that public policy changed dramatically, because the opposition to government activity was significantly reduced, and new activity was introduced. Also not coincidentally, principled Republicans tend to resist government activism, and many of them were swept from power along with the unprincipled ones.

Many people decry "gridlock" in Washington D.C., but gridlock is a good thing. The founders specifically designed the US Government to foster gridlock. The formal name is the system of checks and balances. Checks and balances were reduced significantly in 2006, and reduced dramatically in 2008. Regardless of their party affiliation, you can depend on politicians grabbing power if there is nothing stopping them, and there is nothing stopping the politicians in Washington D.C. from riding roughshod over our liberty at this time.

Even the Judicial branch is precariously balanced, and President Obama (based on his past associations, actions and philosophy) is sure to appoint radical leftist, activist judges at the first opportunity. There is no one currently in congress who will seriously oppose any Obama nomination.

In 2010, we must elect candidates that will restore checks and balances to the federal government. Elections have consequences. Don't blow it again in 2010!
