how did your state do?

well looking at our results i belive out of the about 30+ offices elected we sent 1 democrat to office. the rest were all republican winners. this is good and bad because some people only won becuase they were republicans not because they would be a better choice. like our democratic state auditor lost to a republican guy who has no experience in auditing, never conducted a audit and is not even as much as a accountant but hey hes a republican so he won

I've heard that they cut some funding to firefighters and law enforcement though...sad day :(
i think it depends more on which of the initiatives go through, one of them ditches the high liquor tax, the other reforms it. but we shall see

im not to sure how i feel about it though, i know in idaho and california they have liquor everywhere, and seem to be doin fine. but when they sell four lokos in a gas station a fifth cant be much worse haha

that they do, i drove down through idaho in the summer (i was in spokane too) on a roadtrip down to seattle and in the convenience stores/ gas stations there was beer and alcohol everywhere, and a lot had mini casinos attached too.

lol, here you can only get alcohol at liquor stores and you cant even go in the store if your under 18, unless your with an adult (like a parent buying something)

Like a lot of elections, there were a TON of republicans elected. I was pretty pleased with the overall Indiana results. Tod Young won over Barron Hill as state rep and I was pleased with that.

They also put a cap on property taxes which is good since the original idea of property tax has been completely f-ed over. Now it's caped at 2% of the assessed house value.

The STUPID county ballot measure passed. Allows for a property tax increase of $0.14 per $100 of the assessed house value (ie, a $150k house will have to pay an extra $210 in property taxes). This money will go to the local school system b/c they CLAIM they don't have enough money. Yet the local high schools JUST spent $500k on new artificial grass for the football fields, built an NICE new administration building (including a rain water capture system that cost ~$150k alone), and a new $250k soccer field. The county claims the money is in the wrong fund, it's the "wrong color" (which right now is correct and it can not be used). What they fail to mention is that the bill is currently in the state government to allow the school systems to move funds from one area to another (with proper voting).

I just love seeing my taxes go up b/c people think the answer is to just throw money at a problem.

That's because of the lazy younger class. I was looking through the exit polls and California had two distinct groups on the matter. One was older people who were against it. The other was younger people who were for it. Unfortunetly, the younger people were too lazy and didn't get out and vote.

Im just glad the republicans won the house majority so they can shut the **** up about the democrats having too much power.
I think it's going to be worse now. The repubs are going to bitch and moan and say they can't do anything w/ Obama. The dems are going to bitch and moan and now point any failures on the fact that Repubs control the house.

They need to get rid of parties all together. Parties are created to help people who are ignorant about the people running (see example from Dennis). Then you can eliminate people who just go to vote straigh party and have a little more educated people voting.

We elected several republicans in our state too which we're a republican state so that was expected. What other amendments did your state vote for?

We had right to hunt. Which passed with a land slide, and we had silent vote for unions. Also a landslide.

As usual, Im with you Sonic. Hopefully we can see come Change. :shiftyeyes

As for the Californians, the younger people were probably too lazy because they were too busy being baked on their couches. But then agian, this has been a trend for quite some time now where this younger class expects things to be done for them rather than them having to take some initiative for themselves. It truly is sad...

+1 on this repubs vs dems bs. Its really out of hand and to much of a us vs them attitude instead of who is better for the damn job.

Honestly I didnt vote. I wasnt informed enough to make a choice and I wasnt just going to go vote with out knowing.

What I do know its that everyone of them are a bad person and a crook. (going by the commercials)

Sadly you are probably right. Everyone is just going to make excuses to skirt around getting anything done.

I know and it sucks. Unfortunetly, everyone seems to do it. I've told my project manager off before because of this. I told him we can sit around and point fingers or we can fix the problem and place the blame later.

But sadly, our politics have come to a complete "Side A" vs "Side B" and I feel it's going to come to gridlock over the next 2 years. :(

epic fail

propl 19 only would have expanded what was legal to grow.... i beleive right now it's only 16 plants budding and 16 plants in growth stages or something like that

prop 19 would have allowed to to grow 25 square feet of plants in your home......you could virtually have up to 50-75 plants going at once... and it would have also allowed you to sell to other states. i beleive right now your only allowed to trade between states

The same thing happened the last two election years only for the Democrats. It just goes to show you how volatile the political atmosphere is right now. I'm just happy that Nancy Pelosi won't be Speaker of the House anymore.
