Is There Anyone Left to Vote For?
The answer to the above question is simple: yes. Take the energy and excitement you were going to bring to a presidential campaign, and transfer it to your local and congressional races! Michelle Malkin puts it very well, in an article I had intended to link before, but was too deflated to do so. Congress has always held more real legislative power than the Presidency, and at least House Republicans have held the conservative banner proudly while most others have dropped it. Get fired up! Let's take back the Congress!

Taking back either branch of Congress right now is a pipe dream. We will probably end up with the Dems controlling the White House and both branches of the congress. Our only way to fight back will be the filibuster. Aren't you glad we didn't vote that little rule away. Fortunately calmer heads prevailed and saved some lunk heads from jettisoning what may be they're tool to keep libs from ramming through some form of universal health care.

Nope, the filibuster subverts the will of the people, plain and simple. This is why they did away with it in the House, and should have eliminated it (not just for judges) in the Senate. If the people choose to vote in liberals in ever area of our government, then the United States has chosen a socialist/communist future for itself. Of course, this type of government cannot succeed as proven time and time again, however most people know what they are voting for. So be it. I want this country to succeed, and I'll work toward that goal... if the majority of the American people disagree with me, then I suppose we lose.

You couldn't be more wrong regarding the filibuster. The filibuster was first adopted as a Senate rule in 1789, though it wasn't actually used until 1841. The threat of a filibuster is a powerful tool in thwarting the tyranny of a small minority. A Democrat president, elected by a small plurality attempted to socialize approximately 1/6th of the American economy. Former Senate majority leader Bob Dole, 41other Republican senators and the threat of a filibuster are the only things that stood between you and Hillary Care.
In regards to your comment regarding most people knowing what they are voting for. I would respectfully disagree. While you and I are watching Fox News most others are watching Dancing with the Stars and "Lost".
