Pull back those reigns a bit partner.....
In New Mexico the newly elected republican governor removed all the energy savings measures required by the previous democratic governor(Bill Richardson)
to be present when a builder built a new home.
So one step foward in one place one step back in another....The new governor is doing what she can to remove drivers license permitting to considered illegal immigrants(so we can all pay higher car insurance rates), and to once again install the death penalty. revoked by the actions of the previous adminstration.
It really matters at a local level at times who we vote for...nationally not so much perhaps, both saying different things but doing about the same.
Locally what they do is really differing.
I wouldn't be to optimistic..by my take the karmic future of the US has now become(long term)...quite bleek.
I hope you are not correct. Unfortunately, you may be right.
