This is the way the American political system works. Democrats/liberals are the counterweight to Republicans/conservatives. The constant teetering gives the impression of movement, but the status quo rarely changes. This has never been more evident than what has occurred in Congress since Obama was ‘handed his hat’ in the mid-term elections; except nothing has really changed. The teeter has tottered to Republican control of the Congress, yet the policies that Obama has pushed forward still remain in place.
Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California has given us the idea of the purpose driven church and the purpose driven life. So, what are “the five basic fundamentals” of the Christian faith? Where did they come from?

When you study the history of the world, some of the most perilous times for any people are when a regime change takes place. I believe we are approaching, if we are not already into, a major regime change; not just in our land but around the world.
Congratulations, Barack Obama! You've fundamentally transformed the United States from being the #1 economy in the world for well over 100 years, into now sliding back into the #2 slot.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
