many people, actually dumb Democrats, love to blame the current situation on Republicans since they have "control." What they fail to understand is the distinction between a majority, and control. If the Republicans had enough of a majority to be in control, love would be encouraged over abortion, divorce, and cheap sex, your Social Security money would be held in a private account controlled by you rather than forcibly loaned to a drunken gov't $9 trillion in debt, health care would be privatized so the costs would go down instead of straight up like a rocket ship the threatens to impoverish every American, school vouchers would privatize education so our kids wouldn't consistently be the least educated in the civilized world, taxes would be flat and simple so personal and business decisions would made in the interest of economic efficiency rather than to dodge a Democratic encyclopedia of taxes designed to buy votes from special interest groups and to needlessly employ a make-work army of lawyers, accountants, judges, tax preparers, software programmers, revenue agents, life insurance salesman, tax shelterers, and lumberjacks (to get the paper) all of whom suck off our economy rather than contribute to it with goods and services that actually improve our standard of living. So, no, the Republicans don't have control, despite a paper thin majority. What we get in Washington then is an odd committee of opposites making an odd conglomeration for which it is hard to hold anyone responsible, except for the ideas they bring to the committee.
I believe that God has planted in every heart the desire to live in freedom.
