    Hey, I wasn't doubting you, it's just the last I read after Cantor lost is that earlier the Dems canceled their convention and didn't nominate a candidate.

    Tea Party Movement still alive.

    No amnesty for undocumented Democrats.
    I'm assuming you'll be happy when Sen. Rubio goes down also, for his immigration bill that actually passed.
    Cantor got what he deserved for his deceit and planned obstruction since election night 2008.
    Imagine Obama and his Cantor smirk tonite .

    As a purely logical consequence, yes. As a non-political matter, no. It depends on whether or not you believe being an obstructionist is the right thing for all American Citizens. I tend to believe that it is destructive for all that matter and beneficial only to those with myopic views about how our nation's business should be managed.

    I come from the perspective that replacing our current system with one that works for all The People, is the best solution. It is not a political solution because no one special interest dominates in their philosophy. It would be an inclusive system that only managed the nation's business and no more than that. It would be the kind of government that Jefferson, told us to implement in times just like our own - when government becomes tyrannical and fails to serve the needs of The People.

    I'm talking about shifting away from an ideologically based political system and moving towards a managerial model where decisions are made against an agreed upon and highly scrutinized set of performance metrics - and where the United States Constitution was strictly adhered to without state infringements. I'm talking about finally setting the record straight and putting The People in charge of our great nation, instead of the minority elite and the Committee of 300.

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    Regardless of why Cantor lost (although turnout did seem to work against him -- primaries only count those who vote, and there were ~65K votes cast in the primary; Cantor won in 2012 with ~220k votes), it appears to me that the Republicans have serious internal polling issues. Romney's internal polls turned out to be total crap; Cantor's had him 30+ points ahead. Something is very wrong when these guys' internal polling numbers are that far off.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    It's worse than that. Cantor was somewhat of an obstacle to the "No Immigration Reform" block of the GOP. Now the Dems get to paint the GOP in even worse light for minorities. I harbor no love for Cantor, but the GOP voters should recognize this a defeat for their party, not a victory.
