    Yes, I think "liberalism" was rejected in the election last week.

    Liberalismódividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.

    Oh, you're not the only one who went off-topic. I did myself at times. Just trying to be better about it.

    Well then, the dems in the last 6 yrs have done nothing, zip zero, noda for the middle class, in fact under Obama's liberal policies the middle class wages are lower then when he took office. You think that may have been part of the cause that the Dems got killed this past election.

    All sides working together with a common goal. I can dig it.

    True. And what Kobie does not appear to know is that unions are the ones who push for the minimum wage law, because they are paid based off of minimum wage plus whatever. And union households are generally middle class. I wish Kobie would read up on it.

    "Voting" was rejected in the midterms. People didn't want to, so they largely didn't.

    And the gift to the democrats was the reason you first got a shellacking according to Obama and now the lid blew off. I mean there are now 32 republican governors. The most republicans now in the house sense the 1930 and you lost the senate big time. And last all over the country democrat seats were lost in every category.

    If I was you I would reevaluate that gift you think the republicans gave you. In fact the way I see it, it's the Tea Party that is killing you liberals.

    And whey did they not want too. I'll tell you, democrats were so down on Obama and his policies, they did not want to vote for a demarcate so they stayed home. Their no show vote was actually a vote for the republicans.

    Sounds like Hope and Change fell flat.
