Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.

Eloquence once again is not the friend of GOP over-confident posters.
Gloat for 5+ months until this exact race is run again, a race in which GOPs have been in charge for 40+ years.
See ya in the mid-terms, starting with unpopular GOV Scott, hurting the down ticket .

Once again, a rather meaningless interim election whose results are overstated because its a meaningless interim election... and we have nothing better to do....
"With a few exceptions, the national implications of House special elections are almost always overblown, hyped by partisans and over-analyzed by the media. The victory Tuesday of Republican David Jolly over Democrat Alex Sink in Florida’s thirteenth congressional district wasn't an exception, but it served as a test-case messaging gurus on both sides of the aisle can use to inform future contests."
Florida's special election wasn
So let me see if I get this straight...you have a Democratic candidate that the party threw mountains of cash at (outspent opposition by about 2-1), brought in heavy hitters for fundraisers and endorsements, had tremendously bigger name recognition and lost in whats truly a swing district (which Obama carried in both 2008 and 2012) and people think there is no signficance here? While its not something monumental, this election spells some trouble for Democrats going into the mid-term seasons. While the GOP may screw it up (entirely possible), this is shaping up to be a pretty bad year for Democrats. Possibly could rival 2010.
I don't think it is a big indicator or anything like that...But it does follow what polls are saying right now about how the people feel about O-care.
On that an update from MY OWN company insurance....
We just got a packet this week it laid out:
My deductibles are going up by 75%
My co-pays stay the same
My prescriptions go from a flat $20 co pay to $20 co pay + 20%
My ER cost are going up by 200% (from $100 to $300)
and My premium is going up by 40%
Plus they dropped my wife from coverage because her work offers insurance as well, however it is better in some places, and worse in others....
So in essence, you could say that my premiums just doubled plus a 40% increase. You want to know what the average person like me is going to be thinking about going into the polls? It is that Obama, Pelosi, and the demo's promised that "the average family would see a $2500. savings in their premium cost per year." That was a lie....That "if you like your insurance, you'll be able to keep it" was a lie, at least in my wife's case. And I am going to be awfully scared at how demo's are purposely breaking the HC system.
I am going to be thinking of that among other things that demo's have done, and it doesn't look good for them.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
