Well, I went and did my civic duty here in New Mexico.

What a farce! We're back to paper ballots, because apparently the electronic machines were just a touch too "first world" for the place. Now it's like voting in Nicaragua or Iraq: paper ballots, voting in the open where people can see you...no, no chance that someone can rig an aelection by using a black pen and a couple of spare ballots. (So you can conveniently find that 100 votes you need to open up the general fund for theft [thanks, Billy the Hut!].)

Next we'll have to use purple paint to mark the things.

All this because some whiny half-wits lost in 2000...oh, and 2002...oh, and 2004. Now we have some twit in Boston claiming that if the Dems lose, it could only be to voter fraud...after all, how could they possible lose? :rolleyes:

I say we get our officials like we get juries; coopt normal people for two years. Can't be worse that the collection of congenital idiots we get now.

For what it matters. Opinion poll in Belgium. Democrats 87% Republicans 7%. ;)

The ancient Greeks were the only people who had a true democracy. Everyone had to serve two years as a lawmaker. There was no such thing as career politicians back then.

The wife and I have done our duty as well.

Voted not to retain every judge up for retention this year...

Wrote myself in for Sheriff and County Engineer, couldn't bring myself to vote for either of the bozo's in uncontested elections, or not vote at all.

Well, I figure the lawyers will be the final arbiters, once again. The Dems will take the House, but the Senate...this is gonna be settled in litigation, I suspect.

As of now, looks like the Dems have both houses. The party's over for gun owners, I suppose. Iraq is now a definite lost cause and rampant tax increases are going to destroy whatever economic gains we've made in the past 12 years. I hope somebody's happy. I sure as hell am not.
