I think the outcome since the last election should make one thing clear: those who say that both political parties in America are basically exactly the same, beholden largely to the same interests, should take a good look at what's transpired since 2014.
In particular, what has taken place since the Democrats took control of the house and the senate:
An utter capitulation to plans to tolerate, even encourage, illegal immigration in America.
The prioritization of foreign workers over American workers.
The unwillingness to even consider any restrictions on abortion, even after 20 weeks.
Total capitulation and even demands for support of same-sex marriage.
Near total capitulation in the fight for religious protection, such that now it's acceptable to destroy businesses that refuse to provide service to same-sex weddings.
All this, not even a year since the election results!
Really, how can anyone seriously maintain that voting for the Republican party in the house and the senate makes no difference, seeing what Democrat control of the house and senate has wrought in so short a time? How blind can we be?
Does anyone seriously believe all this would have taken place if it was the GOP who won last November? How in the world could anyone be so naive?
(Note: I'm still waking up here, and I have the nagging feeling I got something wrong in my evaluation of all this - but I can't place my finger on what. I'm sure it'll come to me later.)
