2010 Elections. Will it be a win for individual liberty?

I would love to know the answer to that question. One thing we know for sure both the Republican nor the Democratic party are pro-power and neither are pro-individual liberty. That being said the next best thing is to decrease the power of both parties and the best way to do that is to have divided government: a Democratic President and Republican congress is, in my opinion, the best combination. I wonder if it would be just as good to have both parties at near parity in Congress with each of them taking over control every other year. I fear that might lead to banana republic mentality where each group takes as much as it can while it can.

There's a good chance that Republicans can recapture the House in 2010.

With Obama not on the ticket, with a lot of people just going straight down party tickets, some of these Democratic Congressmen will lose a few percentage points. Add to the fact that this election cycle it is the Republicans who are motivated to vote; compared to the last two cycles when many wanted to punish the Republican Party for excessive spending.
