There are a lot of Democrat ideas I could get behind if I weren't convinced that they'd take voters' qualified agreement as a mandate to go too far to the left. But it's moot. Because I'm sure they will take it as a mandate and they will go too far, so I have to be guarded with any approval. Yet, I'm annoyed by a lot of the social legislation of Republicans. And I don't want Grover Norquist to write our tax policy, so if you're a legislator who is on board with his pledges, I want your influence to be marginalized. When people get into power after time in the wilderness, they start proposing all the pet projects the other party wouldn't let through the door. And most are rightly turned away before they get a chance to be made into law. And that's how I like it. Gridlock is good. I want to be able to put Washington on ignore and not worry about what they're going to change.
