I hope I am wrong about the outcome but I think that the republicans will have a strong showing and the democrats will use that to cause more suffering for people.
How I think this will happen is that we are in a recession but most people aren’t affected by it. As soon as the media starts talking about how bad the economy is people will start to act like its bad and then it will be a self-fulfilling prophecy.
After the republicans win the democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) will start pointing out the problems in the economy and blame it on the republicans. They have already started saying for a few weeks now that if the republicans win they will destroy the economy because they don’t care about people and are only trying to help out the big businesses that got them elected.
The democrats will then try and pass all kinds of stimulus to “help” but that only makes thing worse and the spinless republicans will go along with it because that’s what they always do. The republicans see the democrats as the popular kids and they just want people to think that they are cool too so they go along with it. Ether that or both parties have become one big party. I don’t really know. But I do know that you really can’t tell them apart any more and both just seem to want power, money and control for themselves.
I could be wrong about all this but I don’t think that I am based on how things have played out in the past. Either way we need to start holding elected officials accountable for what happens and remember it is ultimately in Gods hands.
