The Baltimore Sun has a great editorial in their Sunday edition (yes I still get the paper version) that speaks to a good deal of the "concerns" from this blog. Basically "Republicans, if you think you're so great and set for a 2010 renaissance, lets hear your ideas." The GOP is in the position to be the party of "reality" with "real" candidates who care more about what the people think than what they think is good for the people. They are wasting it with juvenile propaganda and mud slinging. Outside of the local elections, I haven't seen much that makes me excited about national elections.
It helps me to see that other people are as frustrated as I am. I'm not even saying we need Republicans to win, but I don't know if we want to further the expansive-minded government policies that seem to be the practice of the Dems. Yes, Republicans have this in them as well, but at least with the GOP they are hypocrites and not fulfilling planks of their party.
