The only difference between the sides is who gets the money.
It's very disappointing.
I totally agree with you, Diesel. But we cannot give up. This is why we must continue to write our congressman and state representatives with our concerns. But most of all, vote accordingly. Don't give up. Consider the changes in the 2010 mid-term elections to include the Tea Party. This was HUGE!
Personally, I'd like to see the Tea party grow and become an ever greater force to be reckoned with. They definately put the pressure on the Republicans.
