      all is doom. However, when the vast majority of voters, including Republicans, want massive Federal Jobs Stimulus, ... when there are future elections... when there is the ability of inspired voters to pressure their Representatives... well, that's the frame DC politics happens in. And that's where a leader puts fire into the people.

      Republicans were almost wiped off the political map in 1964. They had an agenda, and they kept promoting it, election after election. Never backed down, compromised less and less every cycle to where we are today. And where they are.

      Having a "stand for nothing" Democratic Party opposing them is our main problem. At least the one within our purview.
