I would agree but I think we saw with the bailout that it doesnt matter. We need to hit the reset switch. The Republicans had power and we got a couple conservative judges but did the government shrink? Did they roll back any of the horrible tax code? More progress was made under Bill Clinton with a Republican congress than was made under George W Bush. The people have changed what happened is the Republican party changed. Obama didnt win because the GOP is not liberal enough but for the exact opposite reason that the GOP doesnt know how to stand for anything which I believe is because the candidates we have been lifting up are not believers in the cause but too often opportunists. When they did stand up on energy under the leadership of Jim DeMint people began to notice and support the GOP. When the GOP did not hold ranks and vote against the Bush bailout they threw it all away. Then the GOP fumbled all over itself simultaneously attacking and praising Palin something the left never can be accused of with one of their own.
Im tired of the system that is stacked against us. Im tried of the open tyranny of our leaders Republican and Democrat. We need to cut off their funding which is the blood supply for the tumor that is Washington D.C. We all know it is time for change and it isnt the nice orderly well lawyered change that is needed. Hell those in power dont even follow the constitution unless it is convenient for them. Even a bunch of Republicans voted for a bill of attainder. I know they will explain that away.
They want us to be nice but we arent going to be nice. We have sit by while normal hard working people and their values are maligned while detestable useless scum have been lifted up and given political dominion to thieve with abandon. Well it is time for the thievery to stop, it is time for the majority to take back this country while we still can. The majority of people eligible to vote either did not vote or voted for someone other than Obama. There is a growing class of politically alienated who do not feel that either party represents them. Im increasingly becoming one myself. I want this country to be re-established on its foundations and there is only one way to do that and it doesnt come through playing kissieface with the press.

You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations. -- Barack Obama
