The crop of Republicans taking power next month is even further to the right than the current House GOP conference. The newly Republican Senate, too, will feature more than its fair share of ultraconservative hard-liners.

Freya, I apologize that I posted this article from another source an hour or so after you posted this. The filter let mine go through because they were published on different websites. Sometimes this happens, unfortunately. I tried to delete mine as a duplicate, but it didn't work.

We will be having our fill of these right-wing lunatics soon!

This is why we need to make 2015 the Year of the Activist! This needs to be the year that the Common People rise up, get organized, and raise hell so we can get back our voice in government. We need to show the 1% that the 99% will not be stepped on anymore!

No problem, Judy C - it happens.

I see my Dipstick (wanted the other word) senator made the list, him compromising (that is why I am still puzzled on the NO Labels affiliation. For us, the problem began with attitude, where too many of our leaders seemed content to completely dismiss, ignore or question the motives of people of the other party. Yet he still does. We welcome everyone, so long as they are open to the idea that people with different beliefs really can set aside the labels and work to find common ground. And we believe that common ground does exist if only our leaders are empowered to find it. I am fighting to have rights reproductive to the sage grouse. like getting money out of politics or putting an end to congressional gerrymandering. Yet he agrees to this he thinks it ok to companies pay for his way to the top. (www.nolabels.org) The No label petitions on this site I have signed, I know my congress man well enough to know that to sign them. Yes it was a ploy to get young voters to vote. He is young and hip to them. He is just old, full of hate, GREED, and takes money right out of Koch and monsanto pocket . NO I did not vote for this fool at all. I am an educated person. How much did he pay the Denver Post to endorse him is what I am wondering. Here in Greeley there is nothing money grubbing idiots who only think about them selves. Monfort who owns The CO Rockies, he drinks and drives and gets off Scott free of any charges. If I can find a way I will make my voice heard.

1 At least the night-time comedians will have more business....

2 don't let the conservative supporters convince you that "Americans have spoken" ---- these are not reps of all of the US as some want us to believe, most were voted in by very specific groups not "all of the US" as as President would be

I am depressed, sad and mad at the same time. We have taken steps forward the past six years now to go backwards again.

Don't you wonder how these people are even elected?
Like Palin they couldn't teach her a line!
We will see how this goes too!
Thank you Freya

Scary, devastating times ahead. If there is a silver lining...once they burn the poor saps that voted them in, I hope this is the last of their reign. Unfortunately we're all in for their hellish ride. Be sure to keep their feet in the fire and never take your eyes off the crusty old coots.

When they say..." America has spoken." They mean corporate America and the Kochs...with enough money and lies to drown out everyone else's free speech.

Can young republicans, who know nothing of our social, liberal history and who've been brainwashed by fox propaganda, act in a social manner, now that they have the responsibility to do so?
Being ruled over by the stupid is a scary reality.

If I was a prayerful person, I would pray my buns off, to see the demise of these lunatics.
