    Prop C passes overwhelmingly

    Prop C passes overwhelmingly
    "The citizens of the Show-Me State don't want Washington involved in their health care decisions," said Sen. Jane Cunningham, R-Chesterfield, one of the sponsors of the legislation that put Proposition C on the August ballot. She credited a grass-roots campaign involving Tea Party and patriot groups with building support for the anti-Washington proposition.

    With most of the vote counted, Proposition C was winning by a ratio of nearly 3 to 1.

    Missouri was the first of four states to seek to opt out of the insurance purchase mandate portion of the health care law that had been pushed by Obama. And while many legal scholars question whether the vote will be binding, the overwhelming approval gives the national GOP momentum as Arizona, Florida and Oklahoma hold similar votes during midterm elections in November.

    The question now is whether the administration will respond by suing the state to block passage of the law, much as it did in Arizona recently over illegal immigration.
    This bodes well for November.
    I hope the administration goes against the will of the people on this too.

    The Pete Stark Omnipotent Federal Government just might be seeing the first wave of a second American revolution.

    Thanks Obi. We couldn't have done it without you.

    Don't get too confident, Obama has a 46% approval rating (http://www.rasmussenreports.com/publ..._tracking_poll). Also this, http://www.rasmussenreports.com/publ...artisan_trends.

    The real story here, is that Republican turnout topped the Democrats by a 2 to 1 margin. This spells "political tsunami" if this trend reflects voter enthusiasm nationally come November.

    Not in the Senate, Election 2010: Senate Balance Of Power - Rasmussen Reports™, or the House, http://www.electionprojection.com/index.php, so what are you talking about?

    Yeah, you're probably right... the only states that count are on the east and west coasts........

    No but basically the only states that do count are like five states or seven states, California, Texas, Florida, New York, Illinois, and maybe Pennsylvania, Michigan. They carry the burden of supporting the remaining states and their populations.

    A lot of pundits have said that Missouri often carries the presidency. Some statistic linked Missouri as the state that, whoever it votes for, gets elected. Interesting slice of trivia.

    Besides, it's not like Missouri only has a couple electoral votes. Now if we were talking North Dakota, sure.

    Anyway, it's not just Missouri. Other states will be questioning its validity at the state level, and good on them.
