I'm so happy that the Democrats took control of the House and the Senate. I can't say that I approve of all of the Democrats' beliefs, but it is certainly an epic improvement over the GOP with all their 1984 crap. How the fuck can that party still hide behind the concept of "small government?" The Democrats definitely beat them in that arena nowadays. I miss the Republican philosophy of keeping the government out of our bedrooms and our checkbooks. Seems that's as dead as the Democrats' support of slavery.
