    So your assumption seems to be based on "Hope", not facts.

    Here's what Kennedy did to the last Republican to run against him. The districts in blue are the ones Kennedy won.

    The people of Massachusetts, overwhelmingly Democrat, just voted in a Republican.

    It's going to be a blood bath in November, and the Democrats know it, and are terrified.

    I think we're getting caught up in semantics -- I'm saying big government or the Fed, the machine itself is not the problem -- it's the people running it, abusing it.

    Misspending of tax revenue by both parties.
    Ineffective regulations or inept/corrupt regulators.
    Lack of congressional term limits.

    "Big Government" is an overgeneralization.

    Ineffective programs, inept agency directors/administrators, over-reaching legislation, poor oversight.

    I can only deal in specifics.

    Sure, if you want to call that an ideology, but I don't know if it has a name such as conservatism, classical liberalism, progressivism, or positive liberalism.

    Moderates find middle ground positions that work. Yes, they compromise. The ****ing problem is that the extremes have control over the parties and they don't work together!!! That's the ****ing problem! Nothing gets done. That's where your ideology takes us.

    No. They voted in a Republican because Ted Kennedy was no longer there.

    You seem to be making a HUGE assumption about the entire nation based on the results in one state in a Special Election.

    The only way your assumption would carry any weight is if every state in the nation had the exact same situation as Massachusetts. A dead Democratic Senator and then a special election being held for his seat in an off election year.

    That ain't happening.

    Wouldnt mattered since Brown supported Romneycare, the idiots voted for a socialist regardless.
