Thirteen states have complete democratic power, some with super majorities. So, the skids are greased and pointed at hell. The idiotic voters will have no one but themselves to blame when each of these leftist Utopias become third world shitholes.
From the Slimes -
NY Times- “For quite a period of time, people were voting for divided government because they wanted compromise, middle ground,” said State Senator Thomas M. Bakk, the minority leader — and soon to be majority leader — in Minnesota. Democrats there seized control of both legislative chambers, creating single-party rule in St. Paul for the first time in more than two decades. “But they’ve come to realize that compromise is getting awfully hard to accomplish. The parties have gotten too rigid. Maybe this whole experiment with voting for divided government is starting to wane. I think that’s what happened here.”
Leftists characterize everything they are against as an “experiment,” as if we are all clueless children that have to be patiently indulged and patronized for awhile, to “get it out of our system.”
Twenty-four states will be controlled by Republicans, including Alaska and Wisconsin, where the party took the State Senate, and North Carolina, where the governorship changed hands.
“The fact is, they can do whatever they want now,” Chris Larson, the Democrats’ newly chosen Senate minority leader in Wisconsin, said of the Republicans in his state. He noted, glumly, that they have been holding planning meetings behind closed doors since the election.
Glumly, the senate minority leader noted that complete Republican control is merely “an experiment.”
Let’s see what is in store for Wisconsin that is making the left so glum:
Robin Vos, a Republican selected last week as the speaker of Wisconsin’s Assembly, voiced a willingness to work with Democrats, but also quickly ticked off plans to press for an income-tax cut, education changes and a “top-to-bottom review” of state regulations.
Tax cuts, education changes and regulation review, OH MY!
Let’s see what the dems are up to with their power:
“We’ll trade gridlock for progress,” said Mr. Dayton, who added that his plans included increasing taxes on the richest Minnesotans and devoting more money to education.”
I never saw that coming.
“I said to my staff, ‘The easier two years are over, and the harder two years are now beginning, because we have the added responsibility to lead,’ ” Mr. Dayton said. “And this is a responsibility I welcome, but given the challenges the state faces and our country faces these days, it’ll be a lot of hard work.”
Raising taxes and spending it? Now, that is tough work.
Lowering the tax burden on the electorate, reviewing regulations from top to bottom and overhauling education? Simple.
