During the Republican control, the nation was saddled with massive federal interference in education through No Child Left Behind. Prescription drug handouts became a part of the Republican-controlled Congress' legacy. And it was during this interval that Congress accelerated its interference, assisted by the Federal Reserve Bank, in the housing market in the name of homeownership that produced much of the financial meltdown that the nation suffered in 2008.

During the last two years, Democrats have amassed unprecedented growth of federal government power in the forms of bailouts, corporate takeovers, favors to their political allies and nationalization of our health care system. My question is how likely is it for Republicans to behave differently if they gain control? Their past behavior doesn't make one confident that they will behave much differently, but I could be wrong.


My bets that nothing will change, Republicans talk a big game but in reality they are full of ****. We will still have war, socialism, statism, police jackbootism but if Team Red wins we'll just have some religious bull**** thrown in.

Besides the exception of a few individuals there's just the RepubliCrat party. They both try to pass themselves off as different but they're the same. Foreign and domestic policy, monatary policy, big government, special interests....ultimately they're the same **** in a different pile.

It doesn't matter either way you look at it. They're all playing the political game. They talk about deficit reduction this, budget cuts that. Ain't nothing gonna change until you do a complete political overhaul of your two party system.

What people say and do are two seperate things.

Honestly, McCain probably would have put together a Stimulus Bill and also promoted keeping unemployment going.

And you watch another thing, if in the future the Health Care bill turns out to be popular in many facets, Republicans will start taking credit for it.
