  • The Liberal Democrats will soon go the way of the Whig

    The 2004 election was a turning point in our nations history. Despite an unpopular war, a down economy and real concern over pensions and health care voters decided in favor of republicans.

    I really do not think that this was a vote of support for the underwhelming achievements of the current congress and administration. Rather it was a referendum against liberal democratic policy.

    This was also an important election in another regard as this election determined the direction the Supreme Court would take over the next couple of decades. We have not seen a conservative majority on the court for at least 20 years and it will be interesting to watch how a majority of constitutional conservatives view the cases the come before it.

    The Sensenbrenner bill is just the beginning.

      Well said, Sugarpuff. The Democratic party is finished. I do hope that Senator Lieberman (D-Connecticut) switches parties before his Democratic "colleagues" drag him down with them.
