It was the choice of the lesser of two evils. Americans say we want change, but as long the change comes form other people. Most voters feel their Senator or Representative isn't the problem. The easy answer is "YES" it is your Representative. From liberals to conservatives, they are ALL wishboneS! Maybe this will be the election where a strong middle of the road Moderate can come and LEAD. COMPROMISE has become a dirty word in America. But LIVE AND LET LIVE, America. Lower taxes, shrink government, stay out of personal lives and my bedroom, legalize marijuana, strong national defense, but cut back foreign aid until our infrastruture is fix, allow children of immigrants and many immigrants the opportunity to become citizens. I am conservative on the ecomony, but middle of the road to LIBERAL on social issues. Have your abortion, but I shouldn't have to pay for it with my taxes. Government should not regulate marriage, but issue civil unions to any couple who wishes to live as one. In other words. Churches marry couples, but government makes it official by making both parties get a civil union. You can get married in a church and they decide if it a marriage, but the government issues you a civil union when you will need it within 7 years after the divorce. Everyone is happy. A gay couple can get a civil union, but doesn't have to be recognized by a religion. It is the seperation of chuch and state. PERIOD.
By the way, I actually voted NONE OF THE ABOVE! yes, a wasted vote, but both canidates would have done the same job, LOUSY! Hopefully they will find a way to the middle and COMPROMISE for the good of the country.
