I know that I'm preaching to the choir here, but VOTE!!!

The very people who've been talking about the inevitable Republican/teabaggers takeover of the senate and the Democratic electoral apocalypse since about 3 minutes after Willard Romney conceded on the night of his landslide victory in 2012 (if you remember, the teabaggers took over the senate that night, too) are the same people who sold the snake oil of weapons of mass destruction, the mushroom cloud, the failure of the ACA and so much else horseshit that it would take way too long the list it all.

Why on Earth would we believe ANYTHING from people who've been wrong about EVERYTHING? Why would we believe the only "news source" that has sued for the right to lie their asses off? In reality, polling from many sources tell us that it doesn't look too bad for us.

I, for one, choose not to go along with the dictates of people whose best interests are served by average American either not voting or voting against their own best interests.

My wife and I voted already. We voted the straight Democratic ticket and screw the Republicans/teabaggers, Chuck Todd, Fox, "News" and all of the corporately owned and controlled media who've been trying to manufacture the outcome of the 2014 elections before the 2012 vote counting had even been completed!

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!

I took great pleasure in voting for candidates who will not win- Hopefully Wendy and Leticia will win, but I have serious doubts about the rest of the slate. I had quite a few positions that I had to leave blank as there was no suitable (D or even G) candidate.
