First of all, I’m annoyed. Maybe I’m just dumb, but I figured that when I changed my address at the DMV (where I was originally registered to vote) my voter’s registration would also be updated. Unfortunately, you have to re-register moving from St. Louis city to St. Louis county. So I was not able to vote today. Disappointing.
Talent is ahead now, but St. Louis and Kansas City have not yet reported. Amendment 2 is going down as of now, but we will see.
Obviously, the House has been lost to Democrats. All this talk about a ‘new direction’ is stupid. Apparently no one who voted for Democrats cares in which direction the country goes. By what measure can it possibly be better to have Democrats in control? We’ll see what happens in the next two years, but I’m optimistic we’ll see that the Democrats have no plan. How can they when they run purely negative campaigns–by which I mean purely oppositional. When your entire platform consists of opposing the President, the substance has got to be lacking.
We’ll see what things look like in the morning.
