    I agree about the uneducated voters. I think we should be free and be able to do what we want as long as we are not harming anyone else. I think marijuana should be legal because it doesn't make people go out and kill as some people would have you believe, if marijuana is illegal then alcohol should be to as it it the cause of far more crime and death (excluding the obvious crime of possession.) Neither party is for the legalization of marijuana, only a few candidates from each party support it (dems have only a couple more pro marijuana supporters than the republicans.) Both parties try to limit some of our freedom but the democrats want to limit much more of our freedom than republicans.

    R's took the House, Gubernatorial, and came ridiculously close to taking the Senate as well.

    If that's not a wake-up call, I don't know what is.

    Indeed. The ball's in their court now. Let's hope they can do more than just hurl rhetoric until 2012.

    Not really, the Dems still control the senate and the executive branch. The only way we'll get anything more than rhetoric is if both sides can find common ground.

    This says it all, "If voting could actually change anything it would be illegal"!

    I voted as well and split my ticket fairly evenly among both major parties. The district I voted in there were NO third party candidates of any kind but in New Jersey we did have a statewide ballot issue for a change. I think we were the last state to tell the state legislature they can't take money out of the state unemployment fund and spend it on other things. Not sure how that wasn't already not allowed but alas that measure passed so the greedy legislature can keep their grubby mitts off that money.

    I hold out hope that there will be more cooperation and less partisanship but with the way the country has been trending I have my doubts. All the Governors races that went Republican in key states will make re-election for Obama tough in states like Ohio, Pennsylvania among others not to mention states redrawing lines based on population shifts from this year's census.

    Most of all, I followed as many national races as I could and it was disappointing to say the least to hear very few candidates talk about what they would actually do to change things instead of broad party-based mottos like cut taxes, shrink government, protect social security, protect health care, etc. It's also amazing how bad Democrats are at winning the media message battle but it serves them right for hiding a tax cut in the stimulus bill. I am not a Republican by any stretch but I find myself trending that way on fiscal matters while being left of center on social issues.

    Kudos to those voted and those who didn't. All American citizens have the right to exercise their rights by voting or not voting and I understand the arguments to be made for both sides of the coin.

    You were liberal because indocrination works. If people actually researched why things are the way they are instead of looking for facts to back what they believe things wouldn't be so hard to argue. Scientist could take a hint here too. Look for facts not fact to back your science.

    LOL: . . . Apparently, you do not know who Van Jones is/was? He is or was President Obamas "Green Job Czar" He was or is an AVOWED COMMUNIST. No BS, not saying it because I see a Commie everywhere I turn; he is, by his own admission, a Communist.

    Obama is fond of czars. Did you know they are unelected and unvetted political appointees with extreme power?

    I suggest you do a little research. Or try to.

    Obama is not a Commie, but his attitute straddles the fine line between a democtatic process and totla iron rule that many of ous Proud as all Hell Republicans are bothered by.

    Really?
    Communism is a failed system because humans generally dont want to help others with no incentive for themselves :D


    Its funny because that system is what we want here LOL
    Grass is always greener....

    An old saying:

    If you’re not a Democrat when you’re younger, you have no heart.
    If you’re not a Republican when you’re older, you have no brain.

    Unsure of its origin, but certainly true in my case...

    I see a pattern with Repubs...

    Nixon=watergate
    Reagan=Irangate
    Daddy Bush=War with Iraq
    Baby Bush=A total economy mess

    And the beat goes on...

    I’m going to vote Republican in every available box and there is nothing and nobody that can change my mind.

    I expect Democrats feel exactly the opposite and I see no point in trying to convince them they’re wrong – I can’t argue with a sick mind.

    I just hope that this time, Republicans that didn’t bother last time will get off their sofas and vote this time, because there are more of them – they’re just quieter.

    Dems have had their share as well. Carter is generally thought to be a horrible President. Clinton couldn't keep it in his pants. Obama has failed to make any improvement on the economy but has succeeded in raising taxes on the poor with his Obamacare bill. People need to wake up and realize that neither party is the solution.
