The liberals in power in the U.S. legislature forced Obamacare on the nation in spite of enormous opposition by the Republicans and the population at large, and then they forced the Financial Reform Act on us in spite of great opposition. Recently Barack Obama said that when Republicans become a majority in congress in November there will be "hand-to-hand combat on capitol hill". These acts of legislative violence by legislators and the spoken words of violence by our president must never be forgotten, because, during the 3rd district congressional debate at Johnson County Community College on October 6th, Stephene Moore told Kevin Yoder that when he's elected to congress and republicans become the majority, they must take liberal views into consideration and include them and their failed ideas in all future legislation.
The last thing the nation needs is bi-partisanship on the liberals' terms. Hitler, Stalin and Castro practiced bi-partisanship as they ruled; if you didn't agree with them you went to prison or were executed. The only way we can have a successful and prosperous nation is to have clear partisan positions on both sides of an issue, and when the republicans take charge in January, 2011, they must not even consider cooperating with the failed and disastrous ideas of the liberal/progressives. We've lived with their ideas for 2 years and we know their ideas to be destructive to prosperity and freedom. Later when the more radical Democrats are voted out of office, the Republicans will be able to consider reasonable Democrat positions, but not until the radicals are gone.
For the last 50 or so years, cooperating with liberal ideas has caused the enormous growth of government that is currently stealing our liberties, and the last 2 years of near dictatorial rule and corrupt legislative practices under complete democrat control have brought us to near destruction of our liberties and our economy. The republican legislature in 2011 must ignore the liberal complaints and threats and pass the legislation the nation demands: lower taxes, reduce government size and spending (meaning eliminating excess government employees and abolishing radical government agencies like the EPA and Departments of Education and Energy, along with defunding Obama's czars and launching a congressional investigation into what these people are doing) and reducing regulations that are suppressing the private-sector businesses and job growth.
