Our system is inherently corrupt and the only people who actually run for office are people who have no damn business being in office and it doesn't matter what party they come from or what philosophy they espouse, none of them are worth voting for, at all.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Only 2 issues on the ballot. And I'm not expecting good news.

    The gun control issue (expanded background checks) was backed by Bill Gates and friends/family. They've had TV ads for months, total tearjerkers. The opposition? Saw 1, period. The pockets are way too deep.

    The other is school class size. Ever since the people here voted to pay for not one but two new pro sports stadiums....tore down an old one and built 2 right across the street from each other... I refuse to vote to spend a dime on schools, so I voted against that funding.

    But some of them are worth voting against.

    Re: The Mid-Terms Results Thread

    My feelings on Dems holding the Senate are mixed.
    Losing the Senate is the only way I see to get rid of Reid--besides him losing in 2016 to Governor Sandoval.
    Reid is the real albatross in this election.
    Yet no such equal quarter on Boehner/McConnell .

    all expected--nothing to brag about--spent far too much money in Kentucky and couldn't help others-

    with NC, NH, VA or a clean GA, DEMs hold serve in the Eastern time zone Senate-

    gubernatorial races will be the DEMs big winner tonight-

    Yep, who we end up for is not someone to represent the people or the state. We are voting for what party they will represent in Washington, not us.
    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.

    Mitch McConnell won with 55%.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
