Too young to vote, but I'd go conservative.

Yes, Republicans have control of the House! Not the Senate, but we weren't hoping for that. ^^

Can't vote, myself, but...

The Democratic candidates refuse to stand by any of their ideals (I have seriously seen Democratic ads where the candidates talk about how they're going to fight for your rights against President Obama) because they're cowering from opponents and the Republicans are, at this point, pretty much characterized by the Tea Party. Either way, meh.

Kinda sucks that the House has one party and the Senate has another, though; how much are we gonna get done with that setup?

It's happened before. We're going to see the same thing, probably, that we did in '96, when we had a Democratic president and a Republican Congress. They'll just be forced to work together. And look what came of that partnership.

I voted for William Redpath, Libertarian for Virginia's District 10. I was one of only 5% who voted for him. Oh well, at least the Democrats didn't win my election.

I really don't give a damn about American politics anymore; we're screwed either way.

All you get if you're in politics is corruption. Plain corruption. But I don't want those Liberals take over. I'm Republican.

You are absolutely right, Dark Lord. Everything you said is what I think and/or am.

Also, if you are President, anything that happens is blamed on you. Stub your toe, blame the President. So on, and so on.

Tell that to some of the fools in the USA. Some of the people in the USA doesn't do that. I don't, but a lot of people do where I live, and I live in South Carolina...

The economy was booming with no help required from the government, the government situation at that time proves nothing.

Honestly, I don't think the Republicans are going to be any better at fixing the economy than the Democrats. Worse, if anything, since all they'll do is try and cut taxes.

Actually, no, that's not true! If you cut taxes and spending, the economy will improve.

Because, when you cut taxes, people are more likely to spend money. They don't feel like a humongous portion is going to the government. So they'll be more motivated to go out and buy something, stick money in the bank, etc.

But you have to cut spending too. Otherwise it still won't work.

*clears throat* Anyway.

Yes, but cutting taxes is only one tool out of many, and it's by no means the best one. However, it's the only one Republicans will accept. It's a waste of money to try and give money to everyone whether they are doing poorly or not. The most efficient use of money is targeted, controlled spending with a goal in mind; not giving everyone a tax break and hoping for the best. However, very few politicians have a clue or even care about understanding the implications of what they're saying; they just want to say nice things that give voters fuzzy feelings. And, imo, the Republicans are more prone to this than Democrats, although that's just personal opinion without much evidence to back it up.
