    How messed up is this? I find myself very anxious about the outcome of this mid term. 6-10 yrs from now I am sure it will be as rememberable as the mid term 6-10 years ago. You remember? ..... Yeah me either.
    I think what makes me the most uncomfortable is that it is , or may be, a very close contest at all. I am almost.... almost.. questioning my.... NO I AM NOT!
    But I am very irritated that any part of our electorate would consider a different path than we are currently on. Pres Trump, I get it, he is... he is.... he is.... Trump. I have had many sub contractors and even employees over the years with whom I did not want to be on the same job site, for varied reasons, BUT.... BUT.... they were very good at what I needed them to do. They produced. Customers said "Oh, your man Babula (real name) with the big beard scares me when he is around" Yes mam I know but your windows and doors fit beautifully and you are moving in to your new home on time. You and I both need him.
    And then there is this. How does a Queens real estate developer and TV show producer and talent, become THE most powerful and effective influence in the WORLD both domestic and abroad ? I, unlike so many others, can accept this. It is In my own best interest. NM may turn back to Dem for governor. Oregon may still be a sanctuary state. Florida may elect a socialist anti-semite Governor. But tomorrow there will be President Donald Trump in office as POTUS. You may deem that as comforting... or frightening... or as I see it..... very entertaining in a dire consequence sort of way.
    It is/was my intent to experience this mid term election sober, alert, and engaged until the early morning hours. I am rethinking this. It is now my intent to open a bottle of wine, create something like TacoGetty (one pan taco meat spaghetti thing that mis appropriates at least two cultures) and then go to sleep early. Tomorrow, I will wake up an American.....in... AMERICA.... !
    A little happier or a little sadder. Another page turned. Well, back when there were pages. Swipe?
    So... I hope we all voted. Many have given all for this small right we take for granted and do not impart the importance of to others.
    Happy Mid Terms to all and to all a GOOD night... NMBuzz

    The country as we know it will end today if the other side wins .. sayeth both sides. Thus, our country’s end starts today .. if you believe what you hear from pretty much any news source. I got my own news .. no, the country is not doomed .. regardless of the outcome. We survived Jimmy Carter. We survived Bill Clinton. We survived Barack Obama. We’ve survived Democratic Houses and Senates. We will survive the next House and Senate as well.

    I have never witnessed in my 60+ years...
    The amount of mailings could be used to heat a 3 bedroom house all winter.
    Random texts that I have no idea who they are coming from.
    TV and radio commercials have just gotten out of hand.
    All together the amount of $$$ being spent for this has to be a really scary number, of which 80+% are paid for by "special interests groups".
    I wish the younger generation luck, you are inheriting a shitthole...

    Libido Dominandi...the quest for power, the lust for government. The human condition. It will always be there. We must fight for what is good and just.

    I voted, I did my part, & now I'm flipping back & forth between the Carolina game (BASSETBALL season has arrived!) & "COPS!" and I'll watch the news tomorrow. I am NOT getting worked up over what I CAN'T control, and I'm sure as SHIITE not gonna let the fake media drive me nuts!

    Time for another Shiner Bock. And some ARS. :cool:

    The sun will come up tomorrow, even if a bunch of Dems win. I personally think our country has been slipping toward the socialism abyss for the past several years. The plunge was accelerated by Obummer and his minnons but the plunge has been temporarily interrupted for a few years by electing Trump. I'm sure the socialism plunge will continue again when enough libs are back in power.
    I'm always a little shocked to see how many of our citizens want open borders, free services for all and are willing to give up their personal liberties for the promise of government security.

    All very well stated. And what they (liberals/socialist) get is just an illusion of freedom, free **** isn’t free morons! I too did my part and voted as always. We did not do that bad in Ohio, got a pro Trump governor elected and kept our pro constitution leaders that have proven themselves over and over.
    Not sure how in the hell that Ortiz chick got elected in New York???? WTF is wrong with those people!?

    Ugh. Wolf got reelected as Govenor of Pennsylvania. So far, PA has been a good state to be in. However, Wolf has been showing indications that he's willing to tow the anti-gun agenda of his party. On the bright side, our legislation is still predominantly Republican. So, that will hopefully moderate any major changes to our gun laws.

    Today is full of opportunity.

    We now have two paths forward. Partisan or Bi Partisan, Work together or obstruct. Lets see if our leadership is mature enough to choose wisely....

    Illinois has a new, anti gun governor and the Dems control everything. Bad times ahead for us. After Newtown they wanted to register and tax(of course) every semi auto and magazine. Difficult times ahead for us
