Will Anything Really Change If GOP Takes Over Congress?



It appears that Republicans are poised to take over control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate in November when nationwide elections are held. This is a likelihood simply because President Barack Obama has lost favor with the American people and like other leaders before him, appears to have lost touch with the average citizen. The United States has been a two party nation since I was born back in the 1950's and even though many people and groups have tried to change that - nothing close to a successful third party has ever emerged. While there are sharp differences between Republicans and Democrats, for the most part they are interchangeable. The founding fathers were pretty wise when they wrote the U.S. Constitution, because they made it extremely difficult for one man or political party to become too powerful. The only real chance that real change will be coming our way after the November congressional elections would revolve around how many Libertarian Republicans are elected to office. Where things stand right now, I believe there is a growing number of voters who would consider voting for a Libertarian candidate - if that person is not too far out of the mainstream. There is an ever growing number of Republicans and Democrats who are looking for new ideas and it appears that they might start migrating to Libertarian ideas - if the right candidate(s) come along.
