With the 2014 congressional election just three weeks away I can say in all honesty that I have no idea who is going to win control of the U.S. Senate. Suffice to say the democrats have an excellent ground game in many states, the administration has poor performance on some key governmental issues but all that adds up to little.
It is almost certain that whether the democrats retain control of the senate or not the government will for all practical purposes be paralyzed, at least for the next two years.
Maybe I’m getting old but I’m hoping that some leadership from both parties will seek what is best for the country as opposed to what is best for their respective parties. Of course I might just be a cockeyed optimist. One thing I do know is that short of riots in the street the only practical way for us to express our points of view is voting and so I urge supporters of all political beliefs to vote and if you’re in Illinois vote often.
