Here we are as a nation, some sitting on pins and needles,
to see if their guy/gal got in. Or do we have new laws to
What I am wondering is… what does the Tea Party, and the
rest think is going to happen from February 2011 to say
December 2011 or 2012? As of January, their person is there in
the state capital or Washington D.C., what changes do the
people of “throw the bums out” generation think is going to
happen. Is the government going to come to a stop and do
a reverse? The Government is like a freight train. It takes
miles/months and sometimes years to put on the brakes.
And then to build up steam to start off in a different direction.
So what are these “newbie” going to be able to accomplish in
their 2, 4 year term, that they can run back home to their state
or district and say to the voters…LOOK what I did. See I told
you I would be the best choice because I did this…
What are the chances, other than voting on issues, will they be
able to make a difference? They will try to get on committees,
but they won’t be on any big time committees. Newbies, better
known as Freshmen, (neither congresses are political correct with
the word, person) are put on committees of the older ones choice.
They also are on the low step of that committee. It isn’t until they
have been there years before they get to be the head of any good
Committees. And to bring up a law or ruling, forget about it.
Freshmen rarely get their voices above the floor level. Kind of
like being back in high school. The Seniors don’t like the Freshmen
any more than they did in high school. They are tolerated.
So what do you all expect to happen in the next year? And will
your guy/gal be the one that the ads will be complaining about
next election time around? Or will things be so quiet, no one will
know they were there? Did you keep a list of promises made so
you can see if they did. I really didn’t see any promises of things
to be done by the candidate. It was mostly the other guy is the
rotten egg and I will save you.
The other thing that bothers me is, why is it outsiders come in
And tell us what is good for our state? Either our guy/gal is good
or not for us. We should be the only ones deciding that. Should not
be any outside of the state money nor people coming here to tell us
how we should vote. Go tell your own state people.
Hope I am around to see in 2-4 years from
now to see how this all turns out.
