A Pessimistic View of the Mid-terms

Jeff hasn’t been posting much of late, but when he does, he DOES! This post says everything I’ve been feeling, and likely much of what you’ve all been feeling of late. Please take a few minutes to read and think about it … share his words if you feel so inclined, for we need everyone to understand where the current path leads. Thanks, Jeff!

On The Fence Voters

I try like hell to be an optimist. I keep thinking my fellow Americans will ultimately do the right thing when it matters most. When they see the clear difference between our two political parties, they will surely choose the one that gives us the best chance of continuing to live in a democratic society and address the vital issues confronting us in the 21st century.

Unfortunately, of late, I’ve failed to maintain that positivity. I find myself increasingly in the category of folks who say the November mid-term elections will be a catastrophe for Democrats. Our current president has done a lot to move the country forward. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to matter to folks.

      Our cunningly unwritten Constitution and unpredictable Unelected House of Lords does cause UK governments problems. And there are always ‘The Members of The House,’
      Then there is the old tale (which has a basis for truth) of an MP being selected for the Government Front Bench, an Old Hand there explains to them the nuances of Front Bench where your profile is higher, the Old Hand then gets around to the ‘Other Side’ of ‘The House’, to which the New Front Bencher say ‘Ah the Enemy’, to which the Old Hand says ‘Oh no.
