    If the repubs win, they will share the blame for whats going on. After Six years of complete control we have nothing to show for it and they want another crack at it.

    Seems like the only important thing is to win, but when you win THEN you must have a plan or be blamed for the same economy we have today. Will the repubs change it? Just look at the economy and you tell me. 6 beats 2 every time, except in a dice game.

    No idea. Depending on which right-sided post you read, Republicans will do anything from investigating Obama's legitimacy to be President, to completely repealing the health-insurance law, to continuing the DC status quo. It's up in the air.

    I think Republicans will with the House and narrow their minority in the Senate... and it will amount to a lot of bi-partisan squwaking in gridlock.

    What were the problems when the R's controlled congress from 94 to 06? Also, R's controlled congress from 00-06. Dems controlled it for 4 years, 06-10, not two.

    The run of the mill R will go back to biz as usual. How much they can do, depends on numbers. If they level the playing feild, there will be grid lock in DC for a while. (sweet, sweet gridlock :eusa_drool::eusa_pray:)

    The TEA R's will have to walk the talk or be dumped in 6.

    If the R's get enough pull, they can drag big 0 to the right like they did clinton and we can have some prosperity. Hopefully this time the Vets won't get fucked over in the process.

    They need to get control and wipe the floor with the Marxists.. that means:

    1. Stopping Obama's Marxist Blitzkrieg
    2. Ushering Reid and Pelosi to the door
    3. Telling the RINOS's to find Jesus or watch out.

    No more compromises, stop the insanity.

    I appreciate this, a seminal OP...

    An excellent question, and one foremost on the minds of conservatives...rather than Republicans.

    And explored in the speech of Professor Paul Rahe, which begins as follows:

    "Conservatism in America is now at a nadir. What would happen if it were to recover? What if the friends of limited government were to make a dramatic comeback, as they did in 1938, 1946, 1966, and 1994? In January [2009], this would have seemed a pipe dream.

    Now, however, as the Obama administration flounders and the PresidentÂ’s negatives rise, the Republicans ride higher in the polls, Democratic senators from toss-up states begin to display anxiety, and citizens of all political stripes stage Tea Parties across the nation, such a scenario seems conceivable. But if this were to happen, would the advocates of limited government be ready to rule?

    Thus far, they have been tactically adept, and we can foresee the possibility that they will stick to their guns and refuse to become what they were before 1980: tax-collectors for a swollen welfare state. This is, however, the easy part, and there is no sign yet that anyone has given serious thought to developing a coherent program for governance. "

    Dont you think you're setting the bar to high? I mean, besides taking those two to the door, I know what that means, what is the other stuff? Find Jesus, and Obamas Blitzplay? What does that mean?

    First off repeal Obamacare, secondly make the Bush tax cuts permanent, third cut down the size of government especially zeroing out all the czars, fourth secure our southern border these things are just for starters.
