    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    Performed my civic duty about an hour ago.

    We had the new touch screen voting devices. Worked silky smooth. I like 'em.

    I voted my conscience today. Ours voting devies were little vinyl buttons with red LEDs. Pretty simple compared to the old manual switches.

    I do the early voting thing and get it out of the way.

    One thing tho, I would just like to say:
    "I WILL BE SO GLAD WHEN THIS ELECTION IS OVER!"

    The Senate race here in TN is the ugliest Ive seen in many years and there are tons of commercials all the time. Im so sick of it!

    Dude, I got so sick of a certain Maryland candidate's election camp calling every damn night asking for support. There were days when they called twice!

    Voted at the local Elementary school, right before I picked up whistle britches. It couldn't have been easier to be an American today.

    Voted this morning from the Capital of Corruption, Cook Co. Illinois.

    Lotso problems as usual with voting. Machines don't work, judges don't know $hit about anything and long lines. I'm so fed up with all candidates this time around. None of them deserve anything. Never seen it so ugly.

    So, that said, like the ole Chicago saying, "I voted early, I voted often".

    BTW, my father's name was listed right after mine. He's been deceased for almost 15 years now. I wonder who he voted for today? :rolleyes:

    He's a reptile of the first magnitude. Can't think of a politico at this point who is more repulsive. Well maybe two, but they are comfortably ensconced for another two years.

    Santorum is from across the river in Transylvania, and was the first (and maybe only) senator that rushed down to Fla. for the Terry Schiavo thing.

    This is the weirdest election in recent memory.

    Republicans are losing bigtime......to conservative, gun toting, pro life, pro war Democrats.

    Is there a magnetic reversal of the poles going on that we dont know about?

    Even tho the GOP is out of power, it looks like Congress is going to be more conservative than it has been in 10 years!

    How they run is one thing.............how they really vote may be another.

    Politicians do whatever they have to to get the power, then screw those that put them there. It takes a real leader to run, and stand by their promises. Party lines are extremely hard to cross for the new guy.

    IE, Hillary making her run towards 'the middle'?

    Makes me sick. We need the patriots to stand up, we need a revolution - parties aside, TRUE values and beliefs to the front line please.

    I believe the Senate has already crossed over. So far, 47-47 counting the two Independents that almost always side with the Democratic caucus, even Lieberman.

    (2:10am update)

    Montana- Dems are up by 26,000 votes - 51-47% with 70% precents reporting. Mathmatically speaking, given Montana's population, and the rest of the precents being 60-70% democratic, this one seems to be over.

    Missouri- Democrats and McCaskill have officially won with the Republican conceding.

    Dems have officially won Virginia by 3,000 with all 100% precents reporting. Odds are, the recount will reflect this and change nothing.

    Trifecta.

    imo the bigger picture here isn't the Democrats regaining control of Congress but the fact (or at least the hope) that this signals the end of the neo-conservative movement. Thank God.

    Traditional, heartland Ronald Reagan conservatives now for the first time in 12years finally have the opportunity to take their party back and imo there are many disenfranchised republicans out there who are unhappy with the current state of the Republican party. You know who you are.

    I'm sure many on this forum are probably pissed right now- and that's fine. Man i've been there. But this gives alot of conservatives a moment of pause to figure out who they really are - a Reagan Republican or a Bush Republican. I'd be willing to bet most conservatives in this country hold Reagan on a higher pedestal and they should. I do, he was a great president. I can't say the same for this one.



    His judgement cometh, and that right soon.

    One thing is for sure, the Republicans don't have a shot in hell in keeping the White House come 2008. The Lord could run for them and it still won't happen.

    It was bound to happen.

    Honestly, the Republican booted it. They had the same problem the Democrats had with Clinton...trying to hug him for some things and distance themselves otherwise. The Democrats have been running on the 'Bush Sucks' platform since 2002, this year it got traction. Historically, though, for 2 term presidents, the midterms in thier second terms are bloodbaths.

    Personally, I think that the Republicans in congress needed the old heave-ho. For the most part they jacked up a BUNCH of stuff. Spending is out of control again, immigration is a mess, the medicare plan is a disaster (a Democrat's wet dream though)....so, yeah, a housecleaning is in order.

    Now, I think this all will actually HELP Republicans in the 2008 elections. Why you may ask? Well, I'll tell you. From what I've heard from the Democrats, they are more interested in retribution for the last 6 years than anything else. IF they persue that course of action, it WILL bite them in the ****. Plus, this should serve as a wakeup call that what the real Republican base DEMANDS are conservatives. Reagan conservatives. Strong defense, limited gov't intervention (including social issues). The Republicans have been trying to be all things to all people. Problem with that is, they have pissed off the conservatives and failed to convert Democrats.

    Anyhow, I still wouldn't hold my breath for radical changes. Democratic control of the House is an annoyance, they don't have an overwhelming majority either. The Senate, if it goes Democrat, same thing. Unless you've got 60 votes, you aren't going to be able to ramrod issues.

    Anyhow, we'll see.

    Well, not to get off the bipartisan bickering, but I can't BELIEVE question one didn't pass in friggin Massachusetts. It was to allow wine sales in grocery stores. That's it. Wine sales, not beer. Grocery stores. And people voted it down. This state pretends to be so progressive and open-minded, when in fact they're just a bunch of closed-**** Puritans who are still afraid of alcohol. It just BOGGLES my MIND.

    Also, Deval Patrick won governor, which means I can kiss the rest of my paycheck good bye. I really need to start saving up for a house in New Hampshire... unfortunately my job is in Mass so I'm screwed either way.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    Couldn't disagree more. If anything, this will make a Republican candidate stronger. Once the Dems show their true colors (I hope I'm wrong, but I'm guessing they ran on middle ground and will ine up behind Pelosi and Reid when it's time to vote), the electorate will finally grow a brain stem. The Republicans are bad, the current dems are worse. (I'd love to have the 80's or earlier vintage dems anyday over either party today)

    George: I'd rather have a guy who has a moral backbone and is willing to stick to it than the brainless suit we elected ( who has yet to take a position on ANYTHING beyond "I'm, not Rick Santorum")

    Congrats Libs, I sincerely hope you move the country the right way. I'll really be wanting to know that the extra $10G's I'm going to be paying in taxes are going to something worthwhile and not to some highschool dropout "artist" working on a fifth illegitimate child.

    EDIT: Troy, right there 100% If the Dems live up to their promises, this was a good move, if they live up to their threats, it was horrendously stupid.
    There is no genuine justice in any scheme of feeding and coddling the loafer whose only ponderable energies are devoted wholly to reproduction. Nine-tenths of the rights he bellows for are really privileges and he does nothing to deserve them. We not only acquired a vast population of morons, we have inculcated all morons, old or young, with the doctrine that the decent and industrious people of the country are bound to support them for all time.-Menkin
