Galt is still trying to understand why Republicans stayed home.
The immediate suspicion is anti-Mormon bigotry by fundamentalist Christians, a worthless fringe cult that should not be pandered to. They are the problem, not Fox. The anti-abortion crowd turns off Conservative women voters who are not part of their religious cult.
Republicans should focus on tax and budget issues, where they had great success in 2010.
You know better than to compare mid-term voter turnout with general election turnout.

I was being coy, I don't doubt that pretty much the entire GOP army turned out. Doesn't matter, their message isn't playing with independents. The GOP themselves admit this.

Yeah, roughly the same number of people who watched the final episode of America's Got Talent "disapprove" of being spied on.
Or to use the polls again and something more applicable.

Those who "approve" being spied on was roughly the same number who approved of Obama's job performance at the time of the polls.

Obama's number have slipped since then.

The only path to peace in Syria is arming the rebels.
The US has been providing special weapons instruction to the rebels since mid 2012, about a year ago.
Read the post of those who want more war like Realtime, but stay safe at their computer while PEOPLE DIE and you will find hypocrisy, self-deception, a bigot, greed, supplication, immaturity, lack of poise and Realtime whining and crying with childish self-hate...

It's the culture...

Good.

I don't think anyone likes the idea of being spied on, but we are powerless. The machine is too big for anyone to conquer, no matter who runs for President. Who expands these powers? Congress.
Perhaps we are not meant to know the extent if these practices, if we know then so do our enemies.
Do you really think the NSA is listening to Aunt Battie Lou's and Whatever's conversations?

Your post is unclear.
Are you disturbed by the "NSA leaks" or by the NSA spying on American citizens?
Or are you trying to cover for the NSA by a ridiculous diversion to Fox?
Its no wonder Fox can so easily confuse y'all if this confused you:

"I mean in the right way in that we should never be comfortable with the government routinely spying on us."

The site quoted was "newscorpse", perhaps inadvertently making fun of Obama's lack of understanding of "corps" versus "corpse."

Scarce? Who've you been listening to, the Saudis?

Wind, solar and battery power are, at this point, novel possibilities. We can't depend on 'alternatives' that haven't been perfected. Oil utilization has been perfected. The infrastructure is in place, the cost, in comparison, is low. What, exactly, would we "save" our petroleum resources for?

If lower prices and a North Dakota-like economic boom aren't enough, the political implications with the Arab world should be enough to go balls out with "drill, baby, drill."

Galt is bored by the abortion discussion and by Conservatives that allow themselves to get dragged down by this losing issue.
No change will ever occur except by SCOTUS.
Let's focus on something that we can actually change.
Write to Boehner and mcConnel, and all of the rest of your merry band of Morans. They don't have the guts to stand up to the tea party and evangelists

Perhaps just another odd "coincidence" but about the same number of people who prefer chocolate over vanilla and strawberry.

Meanwhile, the most prominant voices in your Party can't get into a Syrian Civil War fast enough!
The prominent Senate voices in the Republican Party are now Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio.

McCain and Graham are history, convenient foils for the Democrats and their lapdog media.
