“Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.” John Steinbeck
My reaction to the elections is a bit delayed. I guess I’m still a little in shock. Needless to say I did not expect the outcome. When I discussed it with Professor Levine at UT and he predicted a 50 seat loss in the house. I REALLY thought that was impossible, I told him maybe 30 seats. WOW was I wrong! So, Renan, you were right and I was wrong.
I still don’t believe the American people have actually bought-in to the Tea Party agenda.
