Democrats Take Over US Congress

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Now that the Dems have taken over congress, what will this mean. Haven’t the Irish been historically Democratic? Or were we only democratic until we became “The Man” in power?
This Irishman thinks that as our Irish blood has integrated into the new American culture over the last 100 years, we’ve grown more Republican. My theory is that the accumulation of wealth and power makes a person more conservative and more likely to shift there opinions to the right. What do you think? Are you a Donkey or a Elephant and how do you think the Irish lean?

So, pull up a chair and join the conversation.
