    I've been excited about this all day! Its better than watching a football game! And, I got laughed at by one of my friends when I confessed that I always vote very early in case I meet and early demise I don't want to miss my chance to vote - I've even voted absentee just in case (g) and I'm not even old!

    Yeah, it's been an interesting night so far. I'm disappointed in Arkansas voting another Pryor in as our senator. I'm not surprised though. Looks like Fletcher is going to make the run-off in La. and it looks like a 2 woman race in the senate. Got to keep a close watch on Missouri, South Dakota and Minnesota. We may not know anything on those until tomorrow.

    Just heard on FOX News that the La. senate race is grandfathered in somehow with regards to campaign finance reform which means there is no limit on soft money that can be spent on this race. If control of the senate rides on this one, there will be records set as far as the money spent is concerned.

    I agree.

    However, you should realize that the U.S. is not a Democracy but rather a Republic.

    Republic: a state in which the soveriegn power of the government is vested in representatives chosen by the people

    Democracy: a state directly ruled by the people.

    Aw yeah, I know as a gov't, we've got a representative republic, and not a democracy in its truest manifestation...

    BUT, supreme power is still excercised and maintained by the people...

    And also, I had about 15 things on my ballot yesterday that were bascially in the form of 'Issue: you want it or not?' Everybody voted, we counted it up, and the side with the most votes got to call it...

    Semantics aside, democracy still kicks ass.
