    Boehner and McConnell would be a very good start. Smart voters would Cantorize them both.

    Harry Reid will finally crawl away and will only be remembered because he was the worst ever Senate Leader.

    Vote vote vote. You don’t vote you don’t live in a democracy. And may I recommend NOT voting for people who WON’T vote as your representative in local, state and national governments? Hello? House of Representatives, Hello?

    The idea behind democracy — not presented nearly often or thoroughly enough — is that, with all the facts — ALL the known facts — on the table the thinking and evaluating power of the many is better than the power of the few. Our Constitution aside, there are statistical tests that prove this. Voting is the best way forward for the Country at large. People should be fined for NOT voting, not poll taxed or gerrymandered or lobbied to be kept FROM voting, whether on guns or climate change or ANY OTHER subject of import.

    Demand the facts, consider the facts and vote vote vote this coming Tuesday. The next big election is TWO FULL YEARS away.

    While I have every intention to vote, I am also well aware that for the next two years no more is going to be accomplished by the new Congress than was by this one!


    It seems probable that the Republicans will indeed take over the Senate as well as the HOR. It is at least somewhat improbable that they will have enough of a majority to over ride filibusters from the Demorats, just as the current Democrats do not have enough votes to over ride the current Republicans. That is why Harry Reid does not bring up for a vote much of the bills that make it out of the Republican HOR. Simply because it would be totally useless to do so.


    And, even if the Republicans could get past such a road block, they will not have anywhere near the majority to over ride a presidential veto from president Obama. Of course, they will then blame him for doing just what any Republican president would do to a Democratic Congress anyway. Remember their goal is not to help the US, it is to just make president Obama look bad. If it would happen to be that the US would benifit from this then fine, if not, they do not care.


    All this is going to do is to set up the Republican Party for obliteration in the 2016 elections when not only will (if her health holds out) Hillery Clinton be elected president (with perhap Elizabeth Warren as vice president), but a totally Democrat Congress will also result. All the Republicans can do in that case is to stay relatively alive until 2020, when if the Democrats fail, then they might (if they can get rid of their more extreme parts) just take over, and have their turn. And that is just how a representative democracy should work. “We the people” will keep trying until we get a productive combination!!

    Actually it would be nice to have a bipartisan congress that would pass legislation that is really good for the country instead of the Tea Party trying to take us back to the 1800s.

    by the way… this is not a democracy.. this is a republic .. therefore.. the term democrats is a misnomer. Why can’t we just vote for the “best” person rather than a particular party?..Have you ever thought of why you vote either D or R? Is it because we have been indoctrinated to supposedly think that one is right and the other wrong.. rather than to look at the qualifications and the heart.

    This Democrat flew nearly 8000 miles to vote AGAINST Lamar Alexander® (worthless). They could have run a mangey dog, wouldn’t have mattered.

    @Lachplesis

    For the very simple reason that (R’s) vote in total absolute lockstep. Any vote for the so called “BEST” is totally a vote for the lockstep in the case of an®. Which is why I WILL NOT EVER AGAIN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES vote for any Republican. The whole “best person” discussion flies out the window in the face of lockstep voting. Let’s see now, Rand Paul is the most maverick individual on that side right now, will you take HIS word for it? * **** * http://www.cnn.com/2011/POLITICS/05/26/congress.patriot.act/ * **** ** “I’ve been working for two long days filibustering the Patriot Act in hopes that we can have a constitutional debate over certain provisions of it and we can try to reform it to take away some of the encroachments on our freedoms,” Paul said. “Unfortunately, what we’re finding now is that the Democrats have agreed to allow me to have amendments, but my own party is refusing to allow me to debate or present my amendments.”

    Maybe, if we did not have to register by party? The parties are self serving these days … more than ever.

    Please vote Republican; this country can only be saved by another massive tax break for the wealthy.
