Exclamation It has been confirmed

Yes, I heard. It's about f-ing time. Everything I see wrong in a person, I see in a Republican.

having the congress is enough for now since the legislative branch can already check and balance the other two branches.

Having the House and Senate is better than having the President. When a law is passed through the house and the senate it goes to the president. If the president vetos the law then it must pass through the House and Senate all over again, but if it succeds then it will become a law even if the president is against it.

Pesonally I don't belong to a specific party so I'm neither frustrated, nor overwhelmed with joy over the Democrat take over.

...and watch nothing change.

Having control over the house and the senate has been a sine wave of republican to dem to republican to dem over and over for decades. Having dems in control of both sections is not a massive turning point for america; it's just politics as usual.

The anti-Republican backlash should have happened years ago ... better late than never, I suppose.

Hopefully, changes will be made. I'm sick of this country being torn apart by a bunch of war obsessed morons.
