There's a lot I don't like about them, but I
also am sick of taxes everywhere I turn.
The elections are over, and some races, including our Governor here in the state of Minnesota, are too close to call yet. But the Republicans took the House of Representatives. Democrats retained their control of the Senate. The Tea Party (Taxed Enough Already) had a serious impact, and in many instances I can't say that I don't agree with a lot of their platform. The basics are smaller government, smaller taxes, and taking the government away from career politicians - bringing it back to the people. So, we now have several Tea Party-backed candidates who got elected. It remains to be seen what they can accomplish, but it should be an interesting two years until the next major election which will also be a Presidential election. If Obama can't become more centrist and accomplish things to improve the economy, etc., he will be a one-term president, just like Jimmy Carter was. He needs to emulate Bill Clinton and shift to a more centrist position, working well with both sides of the aisle. But I'm not so sure that the Senators and Representatives will move from their ingrained party positions. And that's a big part of why politics and government is starting to not function.
I almost forgot...I have a very dear friend. Cindy has been a friend for 30 years. She's had a rough road - has had Multiple Sclerosis for as long as I've known her. She found some lumps and is going in for tests today to see if they are cancerous. I am asking all of you who read this blog to think kind thoughts for her today and send white light to her for cleansing and healing. I know that with all of you helping, her nodules will not be cancerous and she'll be fine again. Right now the stress is max.
