They'll do and will continue to do whatever is necessary to maintain the status quo. It doesn't matter who occupies the White House or Congress anymore, if it ever did. Our alleged freedoms are worth little more than paper and ink. The only thing that matters is the people, those wide awake and those still asleep.
The purpose of our government has been twisted to ignore the plight of average citizens in favor of those who can write (BIG) checks to either party.
IMO; there is little difference in the shenanigans played regardless of which 'party' is in control. Both (all) are corrupt. IMO; Political Parties are obsolete and should be abolished along with the Federal Reserve, the Electoral College and 'private' campaign financing. (maybe then we can start eliminating LAWYERS too? :laugh:)
Party control (political parties in general) must be recognized as part of the illusion that keeps us divided and distracted for the benefit of those pulling the strings in our society.
FYI; Obama is still below the number of EXECUTIVE ORDERS that Bush signed into law, by roughly 50, but he has some time left ;)
