Even though Obama’s been elected and re-elected nationally, it’s caused a huge shift right in state governments:

On the national level:

President Obama has lost nearly 70 seats in the House since taking office and more seats in midterm elections than any president since Harry Truman.

Democrats have suffered a net loss of at least 69 House seats since 2008, with the possibility that Republicans could pick up even more as the final 2014 midterm races are called.

Senate Democrats have not fared much better, losing a net of at least 13 seats since Obama took office.

Dems know that, which is why they’re fine with the White House going around Congress (and Hillary promising to do it even more) and using the EPA and other agencies in pushes to federalize everything to skirt state legislatures. The Republicans need to do a LOT more to stop the power grab or all the non-White House Republican gains in the world won’t mean much.

    Talk about a stingy rebuke at the local and state levels. This past Tuesday even saw WA ST come within 1 State House seat of the entire State Legislature going Republican and early polling is showing that the Dem Gov Inslee is very unpopular with the voters.

    The downside is exactly as Doug has posted, the GOP at the federal level still hasn't gotten a clue. Hopefully this can translate into more support for an Article V Convention of the States to propose amendments bypassing Congress (but still requiring ratification by the states). It is the only way I see term limits for all federal office holders (judges included) as well as returning the power to the states where it was meant to be in the first place.

    Hasn't Dim's 'strategy' over the last several decades simply been, to BANK on Cali, New York and IL and… just pull a swing state here or there and..? Every election they got the old pigskin inside the 20.

    Just a few ( well placed ) "holding calls" and we can FALL over the goal line from HERE? Well I don't see that working OUT so well going forward. But part of what is still making their nannies [incredibly] fall into place is how well they've deployed Agenda 21 at the city and local level!

    Primarily by "manufacturing consensus" via the Delphi Technique and allowing voters/city councils to 'choose' between a new tax for bike paths OR… do they want a new tax for parks or a library? But, either WAY there's gonna' be a new tax!

    As someone recently paralleled Obamacare supporters to Imperial Japanese troops, still waiting by wireless sets for word from the emperor, we'll have progressive caves to flame throw out for the next 10+ years! Ever notice how your local city manager's only 'connection' to your town is when s/he first got their JOB there..? Plenty of work ahead.

    Yeah, stuck in traffic hearing Inslee's 'popularity' somewhere between tax audit and root canal!

    Where can I get solid info on Art. V? I've always played along like I knew what it was about.

    Incredibly, in just finishing up "Chasing Madoff", I really connected w/ the main whistleblower, Harry Markopolos. And I think it's the journalistic connection we all sense w/ Michelle and Doug.

    You can be right, Right RIGHT all day long and..? Harry had been spoon feeding the the SEC for the better part of a DECADE and Bernie always made sure there were enough people feeding at the trough for it to be too messy to pursue?

    For the Article V info here is a great site that is leading the charge:
    http://www.conventionofstates.com/

    Also, Mark Levin's book the Liberty Amendments spells out a list of well thought out amendments that the Convention of the States movement is proposing.

    That has been their strategy for some time, but it is evolving with illegal immigration. They have seen these defeats at the state level and know that their days are numbered if they don't do something. So they are willing to work with the RINO's and the Chamber of Crony Capitalism to allow as many illegals in as possible even without giving them citizenship. This is due to the way the census is currently conducted. They count everyone in every state whether they are an American citizen or not (including legal and illegal aliens). This allows for the redistribution of electoral votes to those states with high populations of both illegal and illegal aliens from middle America (red states). Their hope is that it will weaken the power of the red states and make their current strategy of Cali, NY, IL and maybe even Florida going solid for the dems every election. Pick up the rest of the NE and a few other states and they have a majority. Eventually they will give them citizenship so that they can get that vote as well as then they have a super majority and can finish the transformation.

    Well they're PERSISTENT if nothing else?

    Absolutely, it's become this frantic effort to close the deal and move on w/ the NWO "before those rednecks RUIN everything!?!?!" Increasingly an -embarrassing- 'effort'.

    Clyde Lewis ventured that Muslims *know* they're forcing their own genocide. It may be only 15-20 years out. That's why they're taking such brazen moves NOW. And of course always, w/ their kill-or-BE-killed mentality.

    So I'm not as despondent as some ( you read the depressing comments at MM DAILY ) and the reason why? Of COURSE the Dims, MB, Occupy ____ and hardline radicals are dangerous wild cards! But their actions come from a sense of an ever dwindling window, not from power. The more States they LOSE, they more the rule *via* the EPA/insert gov agency here______.

    Much was made by the Left of Terry McAuliflower winning the gubernatorial race in VA a few years ago. Isn't VA a state that limits his governors to one term? What will become of that office when McAuliflower is term limited? Hope the conservatives run a strong candidate to retake the governor's mansion. If IL can elect a GOP governor, surely VA can as well.
