    Just FWIW, if that's the case then the Republicans failed. The voter
turnout here was staggering. Some areas had as high as a 98% turnout.
That's amazing considering that 40% is typical. I wonder how long it will
be till we have a 130+% turnout like Chicago under Richard (Vote Early and
Vote Often) Daily?

    I remember something from Political Science class along the lines of,
people elect Democrats to get the benefits of big government. Then they
elect Republicans to protect themselves from other people's Democrats.
