    Walker will never be President, though.
    Walker has some great traits, who knows? But for now, I will gladly settle for tonights victory.

    More theatrics, I think. Which is all Walkers opposition has had over the years.

    The first. But the second could be interesting too.

    A lot of people were suppose to move when Obama won. Damn housing market must still be down.

    George Soros was supposed to move to Canada when GW Bush got re-elected in 2004. He of course didn't do it. Nor will the people on your FB feed. It's all hysterics.

    I was just surprised that he could go up against the unions in that state, and still succeed. I do not support public employee unions, but in that part of the country, they seem to be extraordinarily popular and powerful. I'm just surprised that the dem machine didn't manage to demonize Walker enough to get him out of office.

    Since he survived a recall in the heat of all that, I just didn't see his reelection now as a surprise. I support public sector unions as long as they are not allowed to go on strike. I support worker rights, but only to the extent that they do not prevent my trash from being picked up. My cans get pretty rank in the course of one week so I cannot imagine what it would be like if they sat there for several weeks, but I suspect it would involve workers from the CDC in white suits and respirators investigating a new plague.

    Mostly just labor unions which should be fielding their own candidates instead of supporting the DNC and opposing the RNC.



    Because American's want to feel this again:
    So your pride in America is contingent on who controls the Senate?

    Sorry but I have learned that when republicans start their flag waving, people tend to pay too high a price, some more individually exponentially worse than for the whole, but generally not good.


    And under progressive collectivism it just will never happen.
    If you cannot feel hope and pride in America when someone is trying to be more than the party of no, then your point of view is so skewed from mine that there is no way we could ever agree.
