Folks, the Democrats stink but I don't think the Republicans or the Tea Party are the answer. I have a problem voting for people like Republicans that have decided that rich people deserve a tax break. Really, that doesn't make any sense.

Also, I have no reason to believe that Tea Party candidates will work for us either. They refuse to answer any questions about their positions. They just say "Trust Me" and I think that is stupid. Again, the Democrats stink but there is no quality alternative available.

Nope. The party of 'NO", AKA Reptublican, is peaking too early to win in 2012. Plus, should Boehner become Speaker voters will flock to Democrats in 2012 like never before.

so Repubs controlled both Houses of Congress from 1995-2007. They had control of the White House from 2001-2009, and spent the majority of that time dismantling every firewall and oversight protection they could. The result: a massive deficit, a recession/depression/panic equal to that of 1929, and the smart move is to go back to them to let them finish the job because the current administration had less than 2 years to turn everything around, especially in the face of constant obstruction by the Repubs.

You know, 8 years ago about this time, naysaying anything the President said was grounds for accusations of treason/sedition by the same folks that spent the last two years blocking efforts at reforming the system.

I honestly cannot understand the hypocrisy on the part of those "patriots" of yesteryear.

By the time Thomas Jefferson became President, he realized the damage done by Federalists (old Democrats) was so pervasive, severe and set, he could not reverse it. He became so pissed he began saying radical things, like there should be a revolution every twenty years.

The damage done internally to themselves and to the nation by the overrun Democrat Party since the early 70s is much the same. You might note that severe recessions always seem to begin after a couple years of Democrat Congressional control and the false economies they arrange, whether it be dot com, Fannie Mae, or Revitalization.

That's why I think all parties should be dissolved and every candidate should run on his or her own merit. You get lumped in with the extremes of either party and nothing you can do will change the minds of people who will not become informed. I'm sure there are very good candidates who are going to lose tomorrow based soley on their partisan affiliation. I have a neighbor who disowns friends who are not straight ticket voting democrats. And a co-worker who thinks that all democrats are delusional. What do you do? Sometimes it feels like a civil war could break out at any minute - all for control of something we don't have any control over anyway. The illusion of democracy - coming soon to a town near you.

Should the Tea party lunatics lose, does that mean they will be so upset that they will resort to the 2nd amendment remedies? As Sharon Angle suggests?

GOP is miserable.

Not crying sweetie, can't wait to see the Republicans squirm for the next 2 years. I hope Obama remembers every no that was thrown at him when he picks up that veto pen. I wonder if Boehner will cry with every loss in the Senate or with every veto that comes his way.
