Hey Blaze, I'm sorry to hear that you're a Floridian. You should move to a more respectable state. ;)

I don't know how most Americans can find Gay Marriage and Abortion the most important reasons to vote.
Especially when young American men are getting killed. It just pisses me off. I'm embarrassed for this country.
Unfortunately the religious fanatics and the GOP who pander to them have done a number on this country with regards to the new culture wars here, which started under the Reagan administration.

A great book I recommend to learn about how the Culture War came about:
Culture Wars: The Struggle to Define America (http://www.amazon.com/Culture-Wars-Struggle-Define-America/dp/0465015344/sr=8-1/qid=1162957288/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/002-7930533-5292016?ie=UTF8&s=books)

Cause of the Culture War in America

Get drunk, but don't forget to send the TT picks :p

Thanks dear! I will do those now! :kiss:

realistically, if you can only speak english you have limited places to go. canada, UK, australia, new zealand and south africa

Yeah, my German is very limited, but I could brush up on it and have some more options. I should probably learn some spanish.

I like living in California :D

If we could become our own country, that would be too awesome! We have the fifth largest economy in the world, I'm sure we could manage being on our own.

I like living in New Jersey. I understand why we elect Republicans. It's purely for fiscal reasons. New Jersey, in my area, is overwhelmingly wealthy. People want to protect their money. I get it. But thank god we're socially liberal or I wouldn't be able to handle it.

This is really stupid, sorry, but it is. The NEW law here (in the new Constitution) now states that even if private business wanted to give benefits to domestic partners, they may not do so. Only to married couples.

Hospitals can't let gay people visit their partners. Gay parents cannot share custody of their children.

And why shouldn't people pay for homosexual employee's live in lovers if they do it for straight people?

Gay people don't want extra rights, they want equal rights. This really has nothing to do with straight people, and it is insulting that they get to vote on weather or not we have rights. Should people vote before every child is born to make sure the majority approves? Should people vote before you make a post to make sure we approve of what you're going to say?

It's ridiculous for you to state that... to make this about money. It's not about money, it's about rights. And for the goverment to make it illegal for people to be able to care for their loved ones... I see nothing moral about that.

Some has to do with different interest groups trying to confuse voters. e.g. There's a proposition to have a state wide ban on smoking in public places. Tobacco companies know they will be defeated easily so the pull strings and add another proposition to the ballots which is similar but ended up allowing restaurants/bars to choose allowing smoking and pump millions dollars on the campaign.

Yeah, but the good news is that he is quite young, I am quite certain that sometime in the future, he will become a senator...

So, one can guess:

Virginia: Webb

Missouri: Talent

Tennessee: Corker

Montana: Tester

if you add the two independants as democrats (which liberman is doubtful) you have an exact 50/50 in the senate.

Otherwise, more senators and an overwhelming majority in the house is pretty dran good for dems...

There are a lot of black supporters for the Dem in VA.

Especially in the Richmond area they say.

I'm not sure how they image themself for minorities, but that's what I heard.
