One hopeful note on the ballot here -- there was only one race (an uncontested one, and I know him and wouldn't vote for that lying asshole under any circumstances) -- that did not have several independent candidates offered.

Now, the next step is to list the candidates in alphabetical order, whether by their name or their party name, not Democrat and Republican first, then everyone else after.

We'll have tons of politicians applying for legal name changes.

As for college.. it's so great to have a president who plans on making college more affordable instead of one who thinks the solution is "go borrow money from your parents"

and don't worry angry republicans all over my facebook who said they would move to a nation "With truly Christian values" if Obama won.. I'm waiting. I sincerely hope you do move. Go on. I've got some recommendations!
Because nothing screams "truly Christian values" like a dishonest millionaire professional politician.....

As are the state rep numbers, Texas has like ... 20 or 30 or something like that where Alaska has like ... 2 or something (correct me of I'm wrong) huh??? That never made sense to me.

Well America has spoken well see where it takes us :/
I totally agree with this.

It's based off of population.

Was Maine the only state to elect an Independent party Senator?


A few weeks ago, I told my mom and my best friend Jill Stein had been arrested. Both of these people consider themselves politically active and savvy. My mom said "Who is that?" and my friend said "Is that some trashy pop star or something?"

I agree that those wanting to move to another country are stupid, they don't have a clue about those other countries and that they would be moving directly into what they are trying to avoid.
Nothing bothers me more than "If Romney wins I'm moving to Canada" or "If Obama wins I'm moving to Canada" as if they can just walk up to the border and be like "HI I'm moving in" and they'll just walk you to your new house and new job.

ARGH people are so flippant about it like it's just so easy... well it's NOT. it takes a lot of time and A LOT of money

we've become a nation of entitlement. Give it to big government and they'll hand it out.

Another thing that bothers me is "Free healthcare" or "Free higher education"... it's NOT free. it's paid for by someone and it's paid for in HIGH taxes (sales tax and income tax). All the social programs in the world are great but the money has to come from somewhere and unfortunately those who are already struggling to get by aren't going to be exempt from those high taxes...they'll just have to struggle even more.

Yes I know which is unfair IMHO, that a tiny state like New York has more reps then a giant state like Alaska doesn't seem like some states get a fair shake in the house to me.

On the equality marriage vote: GO MAINE!!! Hope other states follow suit; everyone has the right to be happy with whoever they want
