IMO Brown won because he ran a good race & seems so far to be the better man, if he holds true to his word. Only problem is we would need a lot more like him in both parties to make something right happen in DC. What helped him most is the fact that Mass. already has health care & while a lot of people don`t like it they have become use to it & aren`t going to vote for someone who they think might change everything again. Let it play out & hopefully this might be a start in the right direction.

Do you realize the amount of democrats he had to sway in order to win this state?? This state blindly votes for the person with the D next to their names, every time, without fail ..... except this time.

All the dems that jumped ship did so for no other reason but health care -- everything else is secondary. This is based on people I;ve talked to, and a live interview a reporter on Fox did with about 30 dems. Each one was asked what swayed them, and all their answers came back to health care.

The system SUCKS in MA. They will be taking my tax returns -- I overpaid my taxes, so now these dipshit dems get to keep it, JUST BECAUSE I HAVE NO INSURANCE??? This has to be unconstitutional ..... UN-AMERICAN at the very least. Horseshit, I say!! :mad3: :mad2:

He did not have to sway many Dems to win, though he did. Contrary to popular belief, MA has more independent voters
than both REP and DEM combined. It was the independent voters that delivered the victory.
As far as the fine for not having ins, please. Do you have the money to cover yourself WHEN you get sick? And if you do
not, the balls to stay home and die? In this state you will be treated because the rest of us do not want to see your sick dieing
ass on the street. The pittance that is the fine for not having ins will not cover a bandage in the ER that will attempt to put your
broken ass back together after an accident. It is grossly negligent not to cover yourself. And wicked ghetto to expect others
to do it for you.

Lets just hope Brown lives up to the peoples expectations. Forgive me if i seem a bit droll, but im used to hearing good ideas on the radio and not seeing them to fruition. A whole hand of thanks go out of Alaska for the support, of either foundation.

Personally,I would love to give this election the same impact quality as the Midway Battle in WW2. I'm not....This is politics. There are days that I feel both parties are in cahoots. They're taking bartered turns milking us. Sorta' doing the old swing and sway,the good cop/bad cop and so on. The biggest thing tempering my reaction to all this is the fact that my Countrymen put these Marxists in Office in 2008. The Republicans had it all.....and they pee'd it away. That makes me ill. The new Karl Marx endorsed democrat party makes Jack Kennedy look like a Conservative. Something that always sticks with me,day in and day out,is a quote from Major Dick Winters 506 E Co. 101AB. He said "If we don't worry about who gets the credit,we can get more done" I don't think thats "jingoism". We'd better get busy.......

In 2008 the Republicans did not deserve to be elected, so the people threw the rascals out. In came the Democrats -- and their leadership. Obama, Pelosi, and Reid interpreted the 2008 election as a Democratic win.

It wasn't a Democratic win. It was a Republican loss.

The Democrats then decided they had a mandate to ram through their Socialist program with "Guess what, we won."
No, Mr. Obama, you didn't win. The Republicans deserved to lose and they did. You were the beneficiary of that. The voters turned the rascals out and unfortunately for this country you were the only ones in line to take their place. But in interpreting that as a Socialist mandate you rammed through a program that the American people didn't and don't want.

And, I make no doubt, you are not likely to have learned much from the loss of the Ted Kennedy seat. Now, I gather, you're going to continue with your programs.

The next few months will be interesting. Clearly the Democrats learned nothing; the question is:
Did the Republicans learn anything?

Per FogHorn LegHorn(Famous Cartoon Rooster): "Fortunately I Keep My Feathers Numbered For Just Such An Occasion"....

Believe me,I've been gluing mine back on one by one since the 2008 Election. dll,that was a Masterpiece of an assessment of what Alamo'd us in 2008. And don't get me wrong about liberals,either. They still are part of the American Landscape. The problem seems to be that for the more vigorous Marxist types they have the terrible habit of using the Bodies of every Dead,Maimed And Injured (Physically and Mentally) Serviceman and Woman as their podium or platform. Freedom has not been Free. Always remember those Americans,as many do not......God Love 'Em......Hambden Bob...
