Once again the American Electorate gets it right:

1) Balanced approach to our deficit: the electorate rejected Romney's call for more tax cuts for the wealthy, more defense spending, without articulating which government programs will be cut.

2) Less government spending: the electorate re-elected a Republican House to underscore that they want less government spending.

3) Less government intrusion: Pro-choice is the law of the land. Everyone should have equal access to the law (e.g. gay rights).

4) Immigration reform: self-deportation is silly. We need well thought out laws. The Republicans heard the message loud and clear.

5) Government has a role: highways, catastrophic storms need a multi-state approach. However, this does not mean that we need more government. We need more efficient government. There are now 30 Republican governors.

6) The Religious Right's views are unacceptable: Statements about rape and abortion uttered by the religious right's candidates were deemed unacceptable and helped keep the Senate in Democratic hands.

All and all, the American Electorate voted with great wisdom. Unfortunately, not all representatives reflect this wisdom. We need more choices. Better candidates. But a wise electorate is a good start and proves that there is a place between MSNC and Fox News that many of use share.

Less government spending? ....All I can say is WOW, you are very uninformed. We have more debt and more deficits than ever before, do you think this is going to change any time soon?

Less government intrusion?....Again, WOW, do you read any form of news articles? ObamaCare is all about government intrusion and get used to having WAY MORE intrusion into your life.

Immigration reform: If by reform you mean granting amnesty in order to get more votes, then you are right.

Balanced approach to the deficit? Again WOW!!!!!!! Balanced would mean cuts and increases in revenues. Higher taxes will generate less in revenue (history is the proof of that) and the cuts are non-existent.

We have no budget. We have no leadership, we have no plan under this current administration and they show no desire to work together to achieve anything.

If you read the exit polls and analyze the results which I tried to do in my post, it appears that what the American electorate wants is a balanced and fair approach to government. However, this is not necessarily what our representatives will deliver. We need a centrist party. But lacking a centrist party, the electorate has divided up the government, rejected fringe policies, and dismissed fringe candidates. Hopefully, the wise electorate will prevail.

Third world populations and degenerates voted for Obama. Real, traditional Americans did not, by and large.

Very little changed in the house. It coincides with the mindset of their respective districts.

Abortion is murder. Do you support the following?

If so, then you're a sick, sadistic individual.

Homosexuality is a perversion. It's a downright mental disorder. Two men were not meant for each other, just as two women were not meant for each other. If you think otherwise, you're obviously deluded and are in need of psychiatric counseling. Homosexuality was labeled a mental disorder by the APA as recently as the 1970s.

I suppose you want tens of millions of more underperforming, welfare-taking illegals? Oh yes, what the United States needs. More debt. More chaos. More social and cultural division, as that is what this will only bring. No unity whatsoever. Genius, pure genius.

No one has denied the role of state and local governments. They have only argued that the federal government's role should limited, per the Constitution.

What is unacceptable is the murder of unborn children. (See link above if you have the stomach). That you'd be upset with someone speaking against abortion, instead of the travesty itself, speaks volumes.

You do realize that a baby looks like a baby within five weeks or less of conception? A baby has a heart beat only four weeks after conception. Do you think it is appropriate to kill an unborn child? Regardless of how the child is conceived, it is still valuable, and no one has a right to kill it. There is adoption.

No. They voted like a bunch of irrational, non-thinking, God-hating, freeby-loving thugs. If you can't see it, then that's on you.

What this country needs to do is to turn back to God.

The U.S. has a very diverse electorate representing a very wide spectrum of views. Your point of view was rejected.

Obama received 10 million less votes than he received in 2008. Romney received 3 million less votes than McCain received in 2008. The American electorate got it right???????

No question there is a general distaste for candidates that our parties are producing.

Do you have any idea -- or care, for that matter -- how offensive that is?

My daughters and I all voted for Obama.

My mother's family first arrived here by boat as immigrants ... on the Mayflower.

My father's family first came here as Dutch immigrants ... when New York was New Amsterdam.

I'm as white bread as you can get. I have a superior education and a professional career. My family voted for Obama.

And every single solitary activist I've been working with these last couple of years, who all voted for Obama, are middle class professionals, most of them white, all with a minimum of a bachelor's degree. Most of them in late middle age or older.

None of us are rich, if anything we're sliding into lower class lifestyles thanks to the Bush years. But we chose Obama to help us, not your filthy, greedy, heartless, ignorant white bread candidate.

So now tell me how we're bizarre outliers. How no one else in the country like me voted for Obama. Please. Tell me how I'm just a degenerate. Go ahead, you mewling, flap-mouthed lout. You could have expected the poor, minorities and women to vote for Obama. What cost Romney the election is losing people like me.

I stopped here laughing so hard at how dumb some americans are..

Romney called for cutting the growth of spending, not increases, and he didnt suggest tax cuts for the wealthy..

The only way we got it right, is if you are a taker, and dont mind another $5T in debt in order for you to have your cell phone, along with record welfare, record deficits, record foreclosure,
You must be proud...
