Any gloating over the drubbing the Democrats took on Tuesdays vote is not only premature but foolhardy. The election results are a referendum on policy. Not person, but policy. With all of the fantastic wins complacency is the last thing needed. Remember 1938 or 1994?
The majority has awakened and had its voice heard. It will be our task to keep the newly elected representatives alert and ready to serve us - not their party, nor friends, nor lobby hacks seeking to control those we’ve just elected.

That’s first class! That’s the sign of gentleman brought up with the right values; a real sense of right and wrong. Coming off an injury that sidelined him for too long he was released because there were younger men without damage to their knees ready to step in - and they did.
Some in the Senate continue to thwart the will of the people. A case in point. Recently nineteen Senators voted to censor The Internet. Hopefully, it appears there is little chance that this bill will be passed during this session.
