Real change will only come from the outside in.
For 22 years, I've sold my soul in order to "beat the Democrats" ... Yet today, the government is larger and more abusive than at any time in our nation's history!
In other words, it's been a losing strategy ... And hey, don't listen to that crazy guy theCL, that's fine. But mark my words, we're heading into a depression unlike anything you can imagine.
There is no such thing as government "stimulus," no matter who or what party votes in favor of it. Magic only exists in the movies.
And the Fed is literally PRINTING money, so tyrants like Granholm can continue to spend like there's no tomorrow. There's one major problem with this tactic however ... The Federal Reserve, US Treasury, Krugman, McCain, Bush, et. al. don't possess a secret vile of magic dust, they can sprinkle on the printed money to make it valuable.
In other words, it doesn't matter if it's you, me, Tony Soprano, the Federal Reserve, or the US Treasury who's PRINTING money. The act of doing so, is still in fact, a counterfeiting operation. And why is counterfeiting illegal? Because it destroys the value of our earned dollars, thus destroying the economy.
Sorry, but politics, as we used to know it, is over. It's survival now!
PS - I know those dead, old white guys didn't live in our "modern" times, but they're still every bit as correct today as they were 233 years ago. There is not a person on this planet today, who can offer better advice than what they've already done.
Once again, 22 years registered Republican, volunteer, cold-caller, fund-raiser, even went to the Bush/Clinton/Perot debate in Lansing via a posh Republican Party chartered bus with only a handful of invited attendees ... My "Republican" creds are as good as they come. I'm just accepting reality for what it is.
