EVERY CONSERVATIVE LISTEN CLOSELY.The keeping the 60% major majority out of the hands of the democrats is larger than losing the general election.This will hopefully keep any radical socialist programs at bay.Of all the things that Obama has said publicly, by far the scariest is his citizen brigade that will be as well armed, manned and funded as our military.This is how Adolf Hitler took power with his SA that overtook the military. I don't say this lightly. I am not throwing out hyperbole. I am not saying that is what is going to happen here, but the similarities in ideals is frightening. I can't help repeating the same cliche':"Those that ignore history are doomed to repeat it"

I think there are 2 floater independants, so the dems can only get 58 total, I believe.. but those two floaters generally vote Dem.

You laugh big d, but it can be a slippery slope. The fact that over half of our country have ignored the socialist voting record, extremist associates and fascists rants is beyond me.I am not saying that Obama = Hitler. I am saying that policies that he could put in motion could start taking away rights, that if a party grabs a hold of, over the course of a few elections could really gain momentum. Obama is on record as saying the constitution is an imperfect document and that he wants to make changes to it.

Ok then.But why is it that 60% matters and not 51%?

PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!WHOOOOOOOO-HOOOOOO!This is unlike any election day I've ever seen in my lifetime. People packing Times Square just to watch CNN on the video display, a million people expected in Grant Park in Chicago and even here in my small town, a sense of hope and excitement and involvement I've truly never seen before.And in other "news"... I'm back, babies!Nothing kept me away, really, just a lot of reading, editing my book, watching debates and news obsessively, and, oh yeah, playing my very first ever game of poker! I'll post a little story about that in GenPo soon. I've been learning it and watching it for a while and finally decided I needed to put my money down on the table.

I've heard about this police force. It is true, and seriously, wtf?What is the purpose of this? Is it true?Very unsettling if it is........

I will laugh, El Guapo, because while I do like you, I think everything you say about politics is insane and extreme. You think bill clinton is a mass murderer, FFS, I can't take you seriously at all w/r/t politics.

because if there's an under 60 percent majority, the Republicans can filabuster, but if it's over 60 percent, the Dem's can just break the filabuster. IT's a moral victory, if anything.
