Are the Democrats about to rewrite the rules to ensure that they become a permanent majority?

It only will get worse. In two years, the Democrats will have a supermajority in the Senate and even a greater majority in the House. While the Republicans are getting what they deserve, no doubt a hard-left government, which is what we will have, is going to make FDR's hatred of business seem to be a lovefest. Nor will this change. The Democrats are going to re-write a lot of the rules on elections and everything else in order to ensure that they are a permanent majority, like they are in places like Maryland.

As I have written elsewhere, to paraphrase Sir Edward Grey, the lamps are going out all over the United States, and they will not be lit again in my lifetime. Congress and the president are determined to control the economy and will do what they can to grab and hold power into the future. Their efforts will fail economically speaking, but will be wild political successes, and that is all that matters to the DC crowd.

    Not that I agree with tampering with districts and boundaries,,but apparently you don't know or maybe have forgotten,,but The Republican Majority from 2000 to 2006 change the boundaries and districts in Texas where they had incumbent s and changed them to not only prevent Democrats from unseating them,,but change districts so that the way it was changed,,Democrats could NEVER win the state.. ITs now like the Kettle calling the pot BLACK !! Both are wrong..That is why I disapprove of ALL parties..Parties and Lobbyist are the ruination of this country..And the Rich and Big Businesses controlling both parties,,is why we are where we are today in America!!

    Got any other joyous news from the Tinfoil Beanie Brigade of Paranoiacs Anonymous?

    I'm not saying that people shouldn't be informed and vigilant, but where were you during the Bush years? Are you surprised that people voted for "a change?" ANY change? After 8 years of that lugubrious snake-oil salesman, I'm willing to live with Obama for at least 4 years.

    That's the great thing about America: every 2 years there's an election of some kind (i.e., for ALL Representatives and 1/3 of the Senators) and every 4 years for President. That's the time to vote out the rascals... or vote them in. That's up to The People. Please don't forget that, okay?

    When one group calls another group "sheeple" because of the way they voted, do they ever call themselves "sheeple" when they themselves vote for an "all hat and no cowboy" Texas windbag? I mean, "if the gloves fit, you must not acquit."

    Isn't it amazing ?? When the tables are turned,, the HYPOCRITES cry out for equality and Balance !! HONEST debate..Republicans no more want honest debate and balance than they want SOCIAL programs and taxes.. They have always been and will always be,,the party of the Rich and Big Business..With the ''Want a be" Suburbanites,,right up their Azz's following them.. The times today,,make me laugh and happy that I follow no party,,and the buffoons that do are getting what they justly deserve..My only regret is the poor and the working person is suffering so much as a result of both their folly's!! The only thing different that should be done now,,is that these ''living beyond their means" want a be's,, (Anyone with $300,000.00 houses and above) in financial difficulty due to THEIR own lack of restraint and common sense,,be allow to go belly up and return to their roots,,BEFORE they became GREEDY,,like the Republicans they wish to emulate !! Okay now,,lets see all the thumbs down.. I can take it !! SOLOMON

    The economy will dictate who will replace the Party in power, usually beginning with the House of Representatives. Stay tuned for 2010.

    look, it would not count number if this is republican or democrat majority. It wont very last. human beings continually blame those who make the options. If this is a republican president, human beings hate republicans. If this is a democrat president, human beings hate democrats.

    Yes, they are. And anyone here who thinks it's a good idea has less than a good grasp on reality. They will be all for it in the wake of their partisan hatred after the election...but will be the biggest whiners when it starts to infringe on their rights and life. Everyone should be concerned (no matter what party you are) that this is taking place. If you aren't, you are ill informed and complacent. Complacency is a friend of complete ignorance and hostile takeover. Welcome to the USSA.

    Source(s): * you can see...the responses are exactly what I expected and probably you as well. Instead of understanding that we are headed towards dictatorship...these people seem to be content (ahem..complacent) with continuing their hatred for the other party. It's a game to them. They stick their damn tongues out at you and call you names all the while ignoring the Mack truck about to run over their butts. Now you know how Obama got elected.

    Yes the democrats are rewriting the rules as we speak . They will become the permanent majority by April .... no one will ever be able to remove them from the government . They will become kings and you will bow down to them . Do you have any intelligent questions or are all your thoughts paranoid nonsense?

    That's one of the major scary points of Obama's election, the deletion of the checks and balances system. Another scary thing is that his middle name is Hussain. Hmmm, doesen't that name sound familiar? Ah, yes Saddam Hussain, a terrorist from Iraq.

    But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

    Time to do it again.

    As soon as people recognize Obama for the phony he is, he fails to deliver on all his outrageous and unattainable promises, the economy continues to worsen, and people wake up and resist his socialistic tendencies, he will be voted out as will be those liberals supporting his counter productive agenda.
