For the past two years we Americans have all been witness to a president openly wishing he were a dictator and then doing everything in his power to achieve that goal. If his Republican enablers had managed to sweep the midterm elections, there would be little to stop the man from achieving that goal.

Fortunately, the House of Representatives, the only governmental entity that can claim to be democratic (on the one person/one vote majority winner principle), came to the rescue and blocked a continuation of total one-party control.

Thank you to all voters across the land who voted Democratic! We can all breathe a little easier now.
