    We'll send the same representative to Congress, since Congress is doing such a wonderful job (yep, sarcasm) and so the incumbents keep getting sent back. We'll keep our beloved (by some) governor and lieutenant governor, for whom I did not vote.

    This area's Republican state senator, who snuck in by running mid term in a special election in which most of the Democrats stayed home, won reelection. At least there will be one voice against the carbon tax and the high speed rail, but one won't be enough anyway.

    The problem with Colorado is that there are far too many Californians living there now.

    That's the same thing they say in Oregon, Washington, Montana, probably a few others as well.

    The problem with California is there are too many Californians living here, some 35 million at the last count.

    Come drive on LA freeways sometime and then tell us if there aren't enough Californians in California.

    and they all drive cars, some not very well, but they all drive cars.

    If that's the way you see it. Looking at the participants though, it was hardly an exclusive conversation between yourself and Canada John.

    So true.

    I've been in Colorado for almost 25 years now and I've seen the changes. I keep telling myself it's time to move to Texas. The only reason I haven't is because I love the mountains. One of these years the Gulf Coast beaches are going to win out over the Rockies.

    Now if we could only get rid of McConnell as leader (maybe let him clean the bathrooms) and get someone in there like Ted Cruz that will fight for us.

    Not sure if a firebrand such as Cruz would be the best for governing, which is a game of give and take, and compromises. Doesn't strike me that Ted would be well in by that measure. McConnell would appear to be far more a statesman by that measure.
