QUOTED 
QUOTED  That said, I didn't like either candidate, so I had voted for Nader. I was shocked my candidate didn't win...


Yay me too! I was a Ron Paul supporter but since you can't do write-in votes in federal elections in Virginia I voted Nader.


Heh...thought it was Bob Barr running for the Liberterian party. *shrugs*


Edit: thanks for the laugh, Airiana. Love that pic.

I thought it was funny how all of the candidates were running under a party which they shouldn't be in.

Bob Barr never should have left the Republican Party, Obama should have ran under the Socialist Party (), and McCain should have been in his own party, because nobody knows what the hell he's going to do or how he's going to vote. lol

On second thought, maybe Obama -was- running in the correct party...

Edit:

Oh, and Ron Paul never should have left the Libertarian Party. If he had stayed there, he would have beat Barr in the primaries, and I would have had someone who I might have actually wanted to vote for. Maybe.

QUOTED Given that I tend to lean towards the Republican line of thinking though, the thought of a Democratic president and Congress isn't my idea of a good time. Hey, what can I do about it though?


Stoic you are not alone! I'm slightly terrified about the Democratically run legislature , who knows what the hell they are going to do! Obama doesn't bother me that much....

I'd suggest you do a bit of research on what has happened in the past couple of decades. The horrible Economic conditions you see today actually began oooh, around 2000. Or, four years after the Republicans took over the Legislature in 1996. The rise in US targets for International Terror groups occurred under the Republican legislature's tenure. The Trade Deficit was pretty steady, until....oh...1997 or 1998, and then it sky-rocked fast.

So, Kids, WHO HAVE NEVER REALLY DEALT WITH A DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATURE AS ADULTS, do your research before you talk. Or, even better, shut the fuck up and let the grown folks chat.

Look, if you graduated high school and started working in before Jan 1996, then you can start slamming this Congressional class. Besides, the GOP has a good chunk of the Senate, still. There can be balance.

QUOTED  So, Kids, WHO HAVE NEVER REALLY DEALT WITH A DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATURE AS ADULTS

Democrats have had a congressional majority for the past two years. However, it is the fact that they now control both the Executive and Legislative that worries me. Last time that happened was Carter.

Anyway, why would having lived through a democratic majority have anything to do with dreading this one? I've heard the policy proposals of the majority leaders and of the president elect, and disagree with almost every one them. I've heard democratic congressional leaders state that they want to revive the Fairness Doctrine, pass the "Employee Free Choice Act" (which would remove the right to private ballots for union members...slightly Orwellian titles there), and I think these would be horrible infringements on freedom of speech. How would living under a democratic legislature change my opinion?

EDIT: Last time they controlled both houses and presidency for 4 years was under Carter. They will have had both houses for 4 years come next congressional election.

Graduating before Jan 1996 doesn't mean you're better or that you know more. My sister graduated in 1995 and knows squat about how our government runs, and half the time could care less.

I may not have graduated until 2006, but two years of studying how our government is run and how it's been run in the past has given me more knowledge than the average person.

Not to mention the fact that I disagree with the fundamental ideals of the democratic party.

So... four years later. Round 2: FIGHT!



So... thoughts, folks? I was out at a hookah bar last night and the place pretty much erupted as soon as CNN called it. Highlight of the night was "YES WE CAN MOTHERFUCKERS!" and the profound relief I would not have to come through on my oath to black out if Romney was elected. Though, judging from the steadily decreasing coherence of his texts all night, I have it on good authority Oobie is probably still passed out in a gutter somewhere.

On slightly smaller level, thank god humanity has enough sense to not elect Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin. Otherwise I would have had to hulk smash my way to Missouri and "legitimately rape" him to death out of sheer fury and despair.
And for the two issues very near and dear to my heart - Maryland, Maine, and Washington all passed measures approving same-sex marriage while Minnesota votes against a measure that would have blocked it from ever being legal. Meanwhile, Colorado and Washington legalize recreational marijuana use.
So, who wants to go to Washington for a wide variety of reasons?
