Well, I'm voting as a registered Republican in this coming election cycle. I'm going to be quiet honest though, I AM ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY skeptical of the GOP's claim that they want to "restore America" by winning the house and the senate in 2010. It's becoming increasingly obvious that the Republicans have a good chance of winning the House and they COULD win the Senate if they can keep the momentum from swinging in a different direction. SO if the Republicans gain the house and the senate (and I'll be voting for them) here's what I want to see DONE: 1. I want them to put forth a REAL and COMPREHENSIVE plan to secure the borders. They have the majority at this point, so they BETTER be able to do this. I want to see them put their foot DOWN. I mean I want fullscale border security with the works. Attack dogs, armed guards, high security fences, etc. Then I want to see the Republicans pick their foot BACK UP and work with the democrats to pass legislation to punish corporations who hire illegals and provide an opportunity for amnesty for people already here as long as they pledge to serve in the US the military. 2. I want them to begin drawing back troops in bases overseas in places that haven't seen war in decades. That mostly involves Europe and parts of southeast Asia, I'd be fine if we kept a presence in Japan and South Korea to send a message to NK. 3. I want pressure on Obama to deal with China's harmful trade policies in a "Ronald Reagan" type manner and I want work done to deal with our trade deficit. 4. If you are going to repeal Obamacare... I also want a comprehensive reform bill that includes Tort Reform, allowing families and businesses to buy health care accross state lines, allowing individuals, small businesses, and trade associations to pool together and acquire health insurance at lower prices, and making it easier for states to reform their own health care system. 5. I want a law AGAINST TAX PAYER BAILOUTS OF THE FINANCIAL SYSTEM AND MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS THAT ARE "TOO BIG TO FAIL". 6. I want EVERY "EARMARK" FILIBUSTERED. 7. A payroll tax holiday. HERE'S WHAT I DON'T WANT TO SEE: 1. Endless bickering about who's "more conservative", and mutiny and party bickering because of ideology, we saw that during the health care fiasco with the Dems. It turns folks off to see a disunified party. 2. Unwillingness to compromise. We saw THAT during the last congress as well on both sides. It sucks and shit doesn't get done. 3. Angry loudmouthed ideologues yelling about "socialism" and "nazi death camps". I also don't want to see people just "talking ideology" you NEED TO DO SOMETHING, not just talk about it. 4. Blaming the other party because you can't get things done. We know how that ended up for the democrats. 5. Thinking that because you won the majority Americans sent you there for ONE SPECIFIC GOAL and that this is the "end of liberalism in America" similar things were said about the Republicans in '06 and '08 when the Dems thought they had a "mandate" to just go buckwild. You don't. You have no mandate. America sends people to the congress to send a message not to swing the country far to the left or to the right. That message is stop screwing up. We still run shit around here. Now I'm writing this with the understandiing that the vast majority of the things I listed as "don'ts" will probably HAPPEN, and barely any of the things I listed as "do's" will probably NOT happen. So we'll be back again in 2012 with the reactionary voters swinging back and forth.
