Speaking as a Nevada Libertarian I'd love to see Harry voted out of office. It seems the sentiment is shared by a large number of fellow Nevadans including a substantial number of Hispanics.

Harry is an embarrassment to Nevada. His values and votes may work for a number of the transplanted Kalifornians in Reno and Las Vegas but they're not at all representative of the residents that inhabit the majority of this state.

You get to pick two Senators from your state, and they get to pick two Senators from theirs.

The Republicans screwed up, allowed Democrats to take control of the Senate, and then they put him as Senate majority leader. Now, you should feel free to point out to your elected officials whom you'd like them to vote for as Senate Majority leader, I've done this many times.

However, I believe we should let each state make their decision on what they want to. I don't tell Alabama who they should vote for, and I don't tell Nevada who they should vote for. Equal representation. I get my say, let them have theirs.

I really think there should be state subforums here, and put crap like this in Nevada.
Ahhhh... hello.... being that this dude is the majority leader of the Senate, his distorted views and opinions carry a H of a lot more weight than your average minority (or for that matter majority) party senator. THEREFORE that is why we a concerned about it...get it? He forms and delivers policy for the whole Darn country along with Queen Pelosi!

I would like to stress one thing if I may.

These Progressives are far from being out of touch with reality. They are elitists and live well within the boundaries they have set for themselves. Our reality means nothing to them. The problem with our current Government is that they've become separated from their charter of representing the people. They've created their own rules and follow them and here is where we are getting nailed. We "the people" simply aren't entitled to their way of life, but we are required to support their ability to live it. Ironic

And the proper way to express your displeasure at his being majority leader, is to write your Senators, and ask them not to support him being majority leader. Not telling someone 5 states away from you, how to vote on THEIR Senator.

See the post above. You can ask your Senators not to support the majority leader, but don't tell Nevadans how to vote in their election. They shouldn't be telling any other state whats good for them either.

I live in Florida, I don't know whats good for Nevada, anymore than they know whats good for me.

This is how our system is supposed to work.

This guy, and Nancy, (some repubs too) are living proof that political leaders do not care what the American citizen wants nor do they care about the opinions of their constituencies.
"Vote for me because I know what’s best for you, the other guy is worse than me!"
The more we acceptance this behavior the more they will overstep their boundaries. When they remove the boundaries we will know we are too late.

Ever heard of freedom of speech? I can tell any of these clowns what I want.

That gives you more of a say, the majority party chooses the leader.

And to your second post, nothing wrong with freedom of speech, but I don't advocate telling other states what to do in their states. You can keep shooting your mouth off if you'd like, thats your decision. I know if you were telling me who to vote for in my state, I'd tell you you're number one.

The Defense of this clown is amazing. So what if he made a racist comment long as you dont live in NV you should just ignore it. But also ignore that we are going to call anyone that doesnt agree with Obama a racist. But a democrat makes an actual racist comment should just be ignored. Its only republicans that are racist. *wink*
