This means very little, as has been stated before here. The real battles were lost in the primaries, folks. We got statists instead of conservatives as a majority of the Republicans in the Senate. They will continue the march toward tyranny, refusing to go after the corruption and refusing to restore the Constitution. Of course, I could be wrong… they may eventually bow if we keep the pressure on HARD.
In terms of time? Perhaps a little bit more time has been bought in that they might lower the level of acceleration towards the death of the dollar by tweaking finances a bit here and there.
