$787 Billion Spending / Stimulus Passes

We'll my worst fear came true today...and I new it was going to happen. Congress gave final approval to a $787 billion economic stimulus package with a vote of 246 'for' and 183 'against,' with no Republicans in favor and seven Democrats opposed. This followed the passing of the Senate vote earlier in the week of 60 to 38, with three Republicans joining Democrats in voting 'yes.'

Our world changed in November, in large part to the pathetic Republican Party and their lousy candidate and campaign. It is tough to tell if Americans truly prefer liberalism and socialism outright or if they are just ignorant of the transition. My gut says the latter because most people, even highly intelligent people, are so far removed from politics and history. Too many vote because a candidate seems like nice a man/woman.

In the back of my mind, I wonder if and when the American people will say enough is enough? And if they finally realize it, will it be too late to do anything about it through the ballot box? Or will it require more severe means to get back to our founding roots and our God-inspired constitution?

These times are a changing; though very interesting to witness.
