    I would tell you, if we had any. The ostensibly "liberal" policies toward health care, energy, consumer protection, foreign policy et. al. are rarely if ever implemented.

    See above.

    We have two parties involved in making policy, one centrist, one largely center-right with a burgeoning right-wing influence.

    Cantor deserved this for demeaning amnesty for criminals here in our nation in violation of our immigration policies.

    Cantors loss is just the thing the Tea Party needed to get traction going in Va. I'm very happy to see this.

    She converted to the GOP to get elected, like Reagan .
    Lol, you don't convert to a Republican to get elected in New Mexico. I live in a part of Texas that borders New Mexico (yes I can see New Mexico from my house, lol) and I remember that race. She won on a platform of not granting divers licenses to illegal immigrants, which sounds like a reasonable position to me.

    But I didn't vote in the Republican this year, I voted in the Democratic one.
    The Tea Party movement wasn't as large in California as it was in most of the other states.

    Those who would have been on board have probably already left the state.

    Funny, those who use to keep California tax coffers full have left the state.

    Now people like Bill Maher have to pay more than their fair share and Maher isn't a happy camper with California's taxes.

    I wonder if HBO's "Real Time" will soon be moving to Texas ?

    First, I while I agree that this is reprehensible, immoral and downright shady, I wouldn't call it "legal fraud". Fraud by its very nature requires the person to engage in something that is illegal. Second, I don't see this as a left-right wing issue. I see it as an issue that is potentially damaging to any party. However, there is precedent. In the 2008 election Rush Limbaugh asked Republicans to vote against Barack Obama in states with open primaries and by switching parties. His little foray into politics actually had results and Obama lost 2 important races (Texas & Ohio) soon after. The AG of Ohio (a Democrat) refused to file charges on the basis that doing so would constitute as

    1) a violation of the freedom of association clause
    2) a violation of Limbaugh's right to freedom of speech

    Limbaugh safe from voter-fraud charges | The Columbus Dispatch

    Again, I find this immoral and completely reprehensible but it's not illegal or without precedent from both sides.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    what party just overturned Stop and Frisk?... take a guess
    Got to love it - a 'conservative' supporting a policy of stopping and frisking people on the streets for no reason other than they look suspicious. I just wonder what would happen if the cops in, say, Texas stopped 700,000 Real Americans/year on their way into the local gun store, or in the parking lot of the local malls....

    You want "liberal policies" that work? Crime policy. Violent crime has dropped significantly in the last 20+ years, thanks largely to Democratic policies (although again, I hesitate to refer to the Democrats as "liberal"). Just off the top of my head.

    Could be. Here in Georgia we got a lot of those who kept the coffer's full in New England to move down here and a lot of them brought their businesses with them. Lower state taxes and a heck of a lot less regulations and mandates. People do vote with their feet, if they can afford it and Georgia has welcomed them New England Yankees.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    Where is the yawn smilie face?

    I could care less about yet another Washington paid lackey biting the dust..he will just be replaced by another useless, paid lackey.

    Imo, 95+% of those who serve in Congress are corrupt and/or staggeringly ignorant/stupid.

    I literally feel that a dog could do a better job running America - little would get done, but at least Fido would not be making it worse (like the mostly losers their now do).


    The really sad thing is that most Americans actually seem to think these people actually help the nation.
