Well, I just watched as our Representatives voted in majority for the "Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008" and with this muddy, pork-filled concoction handed over more power to the Executive Branch, more spending and who knows what else (because you know none of these members actually read all 450 pages). As the commentators on the news just noted, "we may know in a month or so if this thing worked."
If it didn't work, can we get our freedom back? Nope. We dodged this critical self-correction and will take the credit-laden novocaine and continue on our merry way.
