If you enjoyed 1994, you're gonna LOVE 2010

Remember the voter anger in 1994 that kicked the Democrats out of their leadership positions in both house of Congress? Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal uses Pew research data to show just how angry the situation is now. You really need to read his whole article, but here is just a taste:
Here's the Pew blowout data:

In 1994 when the Democrats lost over 50 House seats at mid-term, the party's favorable rating was 62%, and for the Congress they controlled it was 53%. They still got killed. Now the party's favorable is 38% and Congress's approval is 25%. The Republicans' numbers are low, too, but they're not in charge.
I cannot wait to see what happens on November 2, 2010. No matter which ideology comes out on top, it is going to be a night to remember!

"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free... it expects what never was, and never will be." -Thomas Jefferson

HRC says,"It's time to shovel out the barn. It does not matter whether they be Republican or Democrat. If they have violated their oaths of office or the trust of the people, get rid of them. Only constitutional originalists (non-statists) in office, or our Republic is dead. New motto: RESTORE THE REPUBLIC!

I taught my son everything I knew, and, unlike one daughter, he disagrees with most of it. But, it's his life to ruin. Maybe, when he's my age. . . .
The other two siblings are generally oblivious. "What, me worry?"
