The Political Mood has Changed


It wasn't even a year ago that the nation moved sharply left and placed the liberal leaning Democrats in charge of all the power structures of DC. They took the Executive Branch and secured the Legislative Branch in a pretty convincing election.
Yet not even a year has passed and the political mood has shifted back to the more conservative Republican party. (I openly admit that the republican party is not conservative as I would define it only more conservative then the Democrats.) In every important category except one, the GOP is viewed higher in the poles.

With the exception of the tie on Iraq the wrong group is in power based on the opinion of the people. 51% Say Congress is Too Liberal, 22% Say It’s Too Conservative. Wait, I forgot to point out that issues of ethics and corruption are led by Democrats.
With public opinion falling fast the left is still pressing forward as hard and as fast as possible. I am making every effort I can to hold them back and speak out about the poor choices they are making. Often I find people looking to me to lend some reason and possible hope to a very bad economy. I tell them what I think and why. It doesn't look pretty.

I hope you are preparing for the next major housing stumble. With unemployment on the rise and bank bailout fevers hold on the forclosures of many homes, we see a sudden turn coming mid October. The stay on forclosures will have been lifted and something will have to give.

Currently there is good news on the horizon for this winters heating bills. Most of our energy is in a surplus due to the many cut backs over the last six months. This could mean lower energy prices at a ideal time. Congress is looking to mess this up with the cap and tax scheme they have holding on the back burner.

The bottomline is this folks, if the congress will stop mucking up the economy with bad ideas and expensive plans, we should see a gradual turn around occuring about April of next year. If they pass one of these expensive unreadable bills, we will see further drop in confidence and a much longer period before some restoration starts to occur. This hole that they have created will take several years to fill in. Don't expect any maricle tranformations over the next several months.

There is my pridictions based on current info. Do you have any predictions your willing to tell?
