  1. Wow, voters made a HUGE mistake today by not showing up and by supporting that fat bastard… I’m ready to move out of this district. Anyone else?

  2. Nice showing by Rowe, considering the cash spent by each, and the likely GOP vote fraud. They were probably so worried about Ron Paul and a few other candidates, they forgot to minimalize Danielle.

    The toothpaste is out of the tube, and the establishment can’t put it back in.

    It looks like us true liberty / freedom / small government advocates are hosed for another cycle.

    It may take a year, or 10, or 20. This movement won’t be stopped.

    You old folks (35 and over) who think warmongering is “supporting the troops” will be long gone when freedom is finally restored.

    JFK is credited with saying, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable.”

    Supporting Obama, Gingrich, Santorum, or Romney is making peaceful revolution impossible.
