US: Republican Party rides wave of backlash against Obama Administration. Campaign rhetoric is full of promises to trim government, reduce controls, regain prosperity, restore the Constitution, and “take back our country.” [Beware! This is the same old two-party ping-pong game that has been played for decades. Vote against the previous Party but don’t think too deeply about the replacement. Most of these so-called Constitutionalist politicians have voted against the Constitution at every turn throughout their careers. As Lenin once said: “Words are one thing. Actions another.” Judge Republicans and Democrats alike; not by their present words, but by their previous actions.]
