from Brat's c.v.:

“An Analysis of the Moral Foundations in Ayn Rand” by Katy Holland and David Brat, presented and published in the proceedings of Southeast Informs, Myrtle Beach, SC, October 6, 2010

Whole thing here:

This result, while evidently shocking, and is advertised as a Republican shift to the right, may actually be more basic. Just like the new Tea Party candidates in 2010, a large part of their success was probably a reaction to the politics of the incumbents. The disfavor of congress reflects this disgust. So, this may represent a 'kick the bum out' attitude as much or more than political orientation. This is a renewed warning to all incumbents, which now also includes Tea Partiers.

Current military is downsizing and the rumble among the troops is kick them (congressmen)out at 20 just like they are doing us.
If this gains momentum we will most likely be living in interesting times

From his c.v., Brat knows CoBOL.

For a business major, that's about as close to knowing ForTran as it gets.

When opinion and reality conflict - guess which one is going to win in the long run.

Throw the current bums and crooks out. What could go wrong?

I have heard this song somewhere...

"...out with the old boss, in with the new..."

I see no real hope without a change of rule sets that we would not just get more of the same.
They all wear masks, it is part of the rules.

The first rule of politics, "Once elected, all effort focuses to re-election."

This needs to change.

Until the general understanding changes to: get rid of care-taking, caretaker = Master, until then we will replace one caretaker with another. Once the idea that a caretaker is needed, the argument boils down to who will be the new master and how much mastering will take place (always a ceaseless moving line towards slavery), and what will be the cut off the top.

Folks may think they will get a nanny, or a wise and kind putz, a caring big brother, or a magic unicorn for a caretaker, but in the end you get some deserving flavor of the past despots of horror (Ayatollah Khomeini, Saddam Hussein, Committee of the Benevolent, etc), and a well stocked prison to send family members to. Give up self liberty and roll the devil's let's make a deal dice. You won't get what you paid for even if you tell yourself "at least I tried, the collateral damage was worth it, etc." Always a losing deal that keeps getting worse.

Drug use is a symptom of a person's Microbiome, the person is ruled by their bacteria, not moral decay, (certainly not something that can be fixed by law, my view).
