***Is a "revolution" coming in the November elections? Perhaps. Why all the screaming? If the American people vote for a Republican majority in the Congress, so be it. Instead of all the posturing and threatening, can't we just settle down and see how the democratic process plays out? I would accept a Republican majority in the House and Senate, if that's what the American electorate decide. It is quite normal for the conservative movement to get out its vote better than the liberal constituency. They can better mobilize their voters. So be it. The last election found a rare mobilization of liberal forces around Barack Obama. Perhaps things will return to the normal bloc voting of conservatives in the next election. Please stop yelling that the sky is falling. Most importantly, let's keep it clean and honest at the polls, and no return to the Florida and Ohio debacle of the year 2000. It is a political millenium until November.
***Apparently the election of Republican U.S. Senator Brown in Massachusetts is evolving as somewhat different than was anticipated by all the alarmist liberals. Senator Brown is aware of his liberal state constituency, and he is not voting as a right-wing robot. The Tea Party is blasting him plenty. That should make lots of moderates and liberals breathe a little easier.
***I read an interesting comment by someone who is amazed and fed up with all the attention given to Sarah Palin. He wrote: "Who is Sarah Palin, and why is she following me?" That's worth a smile.
***Yes, like Oprah, I am also sooo sick of Tiger Woods. His rants, his swearing, his poor tastes are enough to make one up-chuck. Who is Tiger Woods, and why is he following me?
***Surely some of you must feel that the extremist comments left at the bottom of each of my blog posts is in poor taste (to say the least). Not knowing anything about me or any of the comment posters, sweeping and lambasting comments are made. It is all too indicative of a societal sickness that is pervading all of American life. It seems we cannot engage in any activity without the omnipresent polarization. Holding onto extremist opinions and distortions of fact will doom this nation and this society. So that you all know me a little better, I will tell you that if you look up my family tree you will find out that I am the sap.
