Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss

Well folks, the Dems have officially taken power in the United States Congress. Fittingly, they are led by the ultra-liberal Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco. But aside from what this means in terms of differing views on policies and philosophies, what does it mean with regards to the prospect of change?

Democrats have and always will be as corrupt, if not more corrupt, than Republicans. So the country isn’t getting anything favorable in the sense of corruption. The Democrats pushed for the war in Iraq and will not rally together to immediately pull out of that particular theater. So, we’re not getting anything new in terms of the war. The Economy is doing very well and the dems will not have enough of a consensus to repeal the entirety of the Bush Tax Cuts.

And they won’t even do anything relevant about the instituted terrorist-fighting policies put forth by the Administration. The Patriot Act, the NSA programs and the rest of the so-called controversial programs aren’t going anywhere. It’s funny because so many Democratic voters take the political rhetoric of the DNC seriously. The fundamental flaw that most on the left possess, is that they actually believe what calculating politicians tell them. Sorry to disappoint you... but you ain’t gonna get what you fought so hard for.

So what has the constant naysaying and the media’s borage of anti-Bush propaganda gotten them? The answer is: nothing. Just a weaker, more pathetic version of what they would consider to be the Republican party... oh, and maybe the increasing likelihood that the GOP will retain the White House in 2008.
