One way out: Be politically active, attend political events and ask the candidates to take you off their auto call list. They will gladly oblige.
Hey, even 2 or 3 days off while they all record their new messages will be welcome at this point.

I just wanted to weigh in and say, congrats DE republicans for voting in a real conservative. Now, she has to win in November. I'm in Florida, so I don't have anything to do with O'Donnell, but I love to see good candidates winning. Castle was NOT a good candidate. The way he votes, I don't even know why he would call himself a republican, because he is such a liberal. O'Donnell may have had problems, but she, and others like her, is what this country needs

to me she talks and acts like Sarah Palins twin

the good thing about not having the right to vote is that we did not get ANY call

If things go wrong during the next election, we seriously consider leaving the country.

We didn't "vote in," anybody. The republicans, which are a minority in the state, were the only people who chose between Castle and ODonnell.

ODonnell is about as ridiculous as Palin is. They both make the same poor talking points that avoid critical thinking of issues. She cried like a baby when Biden passed his seat on to Kaufman, trashing Biden.

I seriously believe that people who like these candidates (Palin, ODonnell,) have low intellect, and comprehension issues. People who like these candidates generally haven't heard the candidates talk, or, are actually impressed with these women's trigger words, bashing of democrats, and occasional use of big words to cover up the fact that they are avoiding the topic at hand, or do not understand the topic, or how to debate it.

Between Palin, ODonnell, and that Florida pastor, I am truly afraid of a large population of stupid, stupid, stupid Americans that occupy the rest of the country.

This country is NOT a game. It's real life, and it deserves the utmost intelligent, compassionate, and innovative leaders - not people who lie, don't pay bills, get caught in the lies, lie about their unpaid bills, and trick slower, older Americans by using large words and hot buttons.

I pretty much gave up when Bush won for a second time in '04, but since I always try to find a positive in a bad situation at least Bush proved no matter how retarded someone might be (especially mentally) they can be president. What I don't like about this is that Chris Coons will probably win. At least this time he'll be raising the nations taxes not just New Castle County's.

Obviously, DE thinks it needs someone better than Castle. He is a demacrat at heart. The people are sick of the usless senator. Good for O'Donnell

O'Donnell just got 17% of the potential Republican registered votes. All of her supporters need to remember that and enjoy the euphoria for a short while.

Most establishment politicians (Bennett, Castle, Specter etc) who lost in the primaries recently were in politics for too long and voters chose younger candidates.

You say Democrat like it's a bad thing.

(hope you don't mind that I corrected your typo's)

A few of my HS friends from Milford posted on their FB walls the day after the election that they were ashamed to be a Delawarean that day. I've got to say that I didn't follow this election very closely since I live in PA but was there low voter turn-out? Did most people just assume that it was going to be a slam-dunk for Castle?
