    That spin isn't going to help in a few weeks. They know this, but they are desperate.

    I don't particularly care about the heckler.

    As I stated in a post earlier today, this election is far from over. All the Democrats have to do is hold the Republicans to a net gain of 5 seats and they will still control the senate. West Virginia and Montana are basically over and are going to the Republicans. South Dakota has come into play over the last two weeks and the GOP is trying to hang on there. But South Dakota's former Republican Senator Larry Pressler running as an independent has thrown a huge monkey wrench into the fray. He might even win, then there is Kansas. If the GOP loses Kansas that means they have to pick up 7 previously held Democratic seats. One of the states counted on to make that 7 or 6 depending on Kansas was South Dakota and I haven't even addressed my home state of Georgia. In the last three polls taken in Georgia the Democrat Nunn is tied, leads by 3 and by 1. Lose Georgia and I would say that dooms the GOP chances even though it looks like West Virginia, Arkansas, Alaska, Louisiana, Montana and perhaps Iowa, Colorado will be switching from Democrat to Republican. Iowa and Colorado are real close at the moment.

    Even as I say the above, if I were a Democrat I would be desperate too. If the Republicans are successful in making this election a national one and a referendum on Obama, they will probably gain the senate. If the Democrats can keep just a few states focused on local issues, then they will have blunted the storm. One state I forgot that may becoming into play for the Republicans is New Hampshire, but I wouldn't count on New Hampshire going red. It's still a long shot.
    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.

    I don't think we're discussing anything other than you saying something your source doesn't corroborate.

The stark differences will be in plain sight and come 2016, let the voters decide.
    Appearances simply don't matter to me. I just want the government as crippled as possible when it comes to expansion. Nothing better than a do-nothing congress in my view.

    Yeah, I know a few people who believe exactly that. As one of those always says, with every new law or piece of legislation passed, there is some freedom and liberty lost.

    It already has extraordinarily high taxes.

    It does. My younger brother lives there at Annapolis. His taxes are astonishing. He plans to leave as soon as early retirement allows. I would too.

    The Dems are not worried. It's in the bag.


    Chicagoland voting machine casts candidate’s vote for his Dem opponent - EAGnews.org
    October 21, 2014

    “While early voting at the Schaumburg Public Library today, I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” said Moynihan. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

    While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race. He notified the election judge at his polling place and demonstrated that it continued to cast a vote for the opposing candidate’s party. Moynihan was eventually allowed to vote for Republican candidates, including his own race. It is unknown if the machine in question (#008958) has been removed from service or is still in operation.
