So, let's get down to business

Now that the Emperor has won reelection, let's ask a serious question.

How long must we wait after his coronation before we'll see the promised end of the federal income tax.

A Republican is in the White House.

The Republicans control the House and Senate.

Now, hold on for the ride as we watch for four more years of the Republicans betraying every spoken principle to which they've ever professed fealty.

The Republicans didn't beat the Democrats. They became the Democrats.

I'm waiting for this freedom the Emperor keeps telling us he's giving us.

Where is it?

"The Republicans didn't beat the Democrats. They became the Democrats."

This is what I was thinking exactly as I pondered the Republican win. The Republicans are now the party of Big Government, deficit spending, and crony capitalism--exactly what Democrats were--but with an evangelical bent.

I very much doubt we'll see the kind of initiatives Bush spoke of during the campaign come to anything. Instead, I expect more expensive government programs to special groups of the electorate.

Of course, nothing will come of the income tax issue until 2008, when it's time to inspire the unwashed masses.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Ah yes, the curse of the Republicrats. When will the madness end? When Libertarians rule the world (in a small government, live-and-let-live sort of way, of course.)
