Todays the day! Get out and vote or shut up about the results. Laugh

Sad but true, if you have a cynical view of voting you probably are not alone, but the alternative to not vote at all, is your own choice to give up. Our vote may be small but at least me and Mrs. G2 discuss all the people and issues, and agree to vote both the same way. Your one vote can become 2 votes at least, so every vote really does count.

We are on permanant lists for absentee ballots, so ours went out in the mail several days ago.

Thank God for one thing voting today. Tommorrow morning all those campaign ads we are sick to death of seeing are going to end. Laugh If I see another Meg Whitman or Jerry Brown commecial I going to throw up. We have had no less than 10 recorded phone messages through the weekend and already 3 this morning by 10m.

Prop 19, all day 'erry day.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

I voted Republican ticket all the way down the line.

Not because I love Republicans per se, it was just a total repudiation of Obama's Soclialist, big government, out of control spending politics. Nothing more. The more republicans in office, the less power Obama and his Marxist minions have. That's what this was all about.

And I speak for the majority of the country when I say that.

Hopefully you're right.

Not sure what you mean.

We just had the biggest swing of power our government has seen in over 60 years. I'd say the country made a pretty strong statement!

It kills me that aquarian thinks that this is all part of some "cycle." It's a stretch to say it's a cycle when something like this has only happened maybe 3 times and not this severe in 60 years. For goodness sake, the country is only 200+ years old. Not much of a "cycle" if you ask me. And he says the dems will become more conservative and move toward the center? Um. No.

I expected aquarian to be more up on what just happened.

It was the fiscal conservative "blue dog" democrats that got kicked out of office, leaving nothing but FAR left democrats in power. The democratic party--by attrition alone--just become a lot more left wing than it was. I reckon the far left cronies that stayed in power did so because they reside where the small minority far left people are most concentrated.

What we are going to see now is total grid lock. The republicans are NOT going to compromise their principles; they are not going to compromise on the repeal/replacement of Obamacare, stopping the cancer-like rapid growth of gov't, or stopping bail outs, or reducing job-killing regulations, or reducing gov't spending, or pork barrel spending and earmarks, or.... you get my drift. Meanwhile, the radical left that has retained power has demonstrated absolutely zero willingness to work with the folks on the other side of the aisle.

It gripes me that of ALL democrats, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Barbara Boxer all dodged a bullet.

At least Rubio beat out that turncoat hypocrite Charlie Crist down in Florida. Rubio was right; Charlie Crist was the epitome of what's wrong with our government. He saw that he couldn't win the race and stay in power as a Republican; so he up and suddenly turned "Independent" so he could dodge a loss in the primaries. And then--as if that wasn't enough--he promised Obama he would vote with the Democrats and Obama on everything, if they helped him win the election. As far as I'm concerned, that's worthy of a jail sentence.

I'm hoping that they actually DO something, and it's not just a reverse case of one side blocking the other side and screwing up ANY chance of something positive being done for us commoners.

Pardon me for being a bit skeptical that things are going to magically get better now that the other side of the same coin is calling the bigger shots.
