A little divided government goes a long way, and I've recently posited that the current Republican-controlled Congress is spending money like a drunken sailor in an Asian port. Someone needs to slap the Republicans in Congress a little bit and remind them that we used to be the party of small government. If it takes the Democrats' winning one of the two houses of Congress to jolt the Republicans into realizing that something is terribly wrong, then so be it.
But not both houses, though. That's just crazy.
And the President needs to get on board, too. Otherwise, we're just milking this Republican control for all we can get out of it for up to eight years, then we'll lose it all and will have to content ourselves by sitting back and saying, "What a time it was." But it wasn't, or isn't, or whatever. I want my small government. I want my low taxes. I want my political conservatism.
