DENVER The Colorado and North Carolina state legislatures were unusually productive in 2013, thanks to the only thing they may have in common: one-party rule.

Someone needs to dust off the old footage of Nancy Pelosi complaining about one-party rule...back when they were the minority.

Since the establishment GOP has become Democrat-lite and only Democrats and Republicans win elections, then yes, one party rule is killing the country.

I’d like to see some of these conniving, self-serving, lying politicians get their backs lashed.
Someday... hope I live long enough to see it.

I would not suggest third party in the next election cycle ... BUT if more TP types who are vetted properly and won't turn, are elected, then we as a free nation will survive a few more years.
But if two things happen then the country will break-up,
if the invading colonizers [and that's what they are] are given anything close to amnesty ... stick a fork in it.
 the communists [and that's what they are] take the house ... stick a fork in it.
That's’ the way I see it.

Only vote in local, state elections. Stop voting in the National elections, they a rigged with RINO against socialist, a fools choice. At the state level fight with everything you have, maybe we can get back at the Feds thru states rights nullification.

I live in Massachusetts. Local elections--sometimes there's hope. Otherwise... at the state and Federal level, it only encourages them.
One party rule in NC was the case from the late 1800s until recently- the Democrats had power, period. (It was a Civil War thing...) So, it was about time the Republicans had a turn....

IMO it’s as good a time for a Third party as we will ever get.
The RINO’s are going to stick us with some Dork—probably named Bush to run for the Presidency.
We do need to keep Republicans in the House, There isn’t any chance of a third party doing anything there. That is a great problem. We cannot afford to give the House to the Dimocrats. We need to get the Senate and get harry Reid out of there, although like Boehner, Mitch McConnell is a piss-poor replacement.

We have one party rule here in GA and I’m guessin the Dems don’t love it. But I do. :-)
