Let’s face it: These midterms don’t matter much

Judging from the records of the Democratic and Republican parties over the past decade, I fear she is right because even after you vote next week, very little will change in Washington despite what carnival barkers on prime-time cable tell you.

The 2010 election is not a dramatic choice between Ayn Rand and Karl Marx. Instead, it will be absolutely meaningless where it matters most: the long-term health of the American economy. Instead, next Tuesday will be about whether America will be $16.4 billion or $16.5 billion in debt the next time we all go back to the polls in two years.

Happy voting.
