That was honestly the funniest thing I've read all week!!!!!!

But to answer OP's question its because they don't know any better and often vote based off of the letter next to the name.

Reid obviously is beholden to the power interests that run the Federal Reserve. Ofc most politicans also are, but in his case its rather obvious as he has to be the one to stand up and not allow this to go through.

The Prince Harry, Nancy Haglosi cartel are the biggest stumbling block in history. They won't allow a federal
budget plan to even come up. That's been the case for almost 4 years now.

If death is natures way of telling you to slow down, old Harry might might set his own "term limits". He's
older than dirt & so is Pelosi.

Actually, Idaho has the 2nd largest Mormon population (percentage-wise) behind Utah, and leads Nevada by a long, long way. The population of Idaho is 27% Mormon. The population of Nevada is 6.7% Mormon. Apparently the 93.3% of its citizens who are not Mormon must be voting for Reid, too.

What is true is often also funny.

Are you in Nevada?

Your profile doesn't list its location.

If you aren't in Nevada, shut up about what other states do and who they elect.

I don't like a lot of what other states elect, but I don't live there. I can vote for my representation.

Not for nothing but don't the GOP do the same thing? I recall alot of Democrat bills that don't get brought up for vote or get killed with a filibuster.

I'm happy reid is not bringing this to the senate. This is nothing but a witch hunt. If it was romney instead of obama, nobody would be talking about an audit of the federal reserve.

Reid gets re-elected solely on the backs of the SEIU. Nevada is a tourism state for the most part. Service workers make up a huge percentage of the electorate. The sheeple in Nevada vote the way the union tells them to. The only solution is to vote in more republicans (which kinda makes me gag too) in order to gain the majority in the Senate so just maybe some legislation can be passed.
