You know the GOP can smear all they want, they can spin in the wind all they want, the only way they can win is do as they did in Fla. or just as they did in Calif. send out flyers for Latino voters telling them it is illegal for them to vote, people in the know know that if you can vote you are a citizen, of course dirty tricks will be their mainstay, but seniors stung by the medicare donut hole, will look at things differently.  The thing about raising taxes is crazy, the only taxes that will be raised is by repeal of the taxbreak given to mostly the rich, so if people vote, maybe this country will not be let by the right, maybe fair play will be more fair, no thme in history as the right been so wrong.

Watch for for Roves campaign maneuvers the last two weeks before eledtions. My bet is that the G.O.P. will flood T.V. with ads. depicting Dems. as morally corrupt, along with the mention of Hollywood and Bill Clinton’s name and some claim that Monica was 19 at the time of their “...sordid…salacious…sinful…” etc.

Don’t think they (he) won’t. The Repubs. must be desperate now, to prevent 2 years of Dems. Congressional investigations, subpoenas, forced testimony under oath of Exective branch Repubs. (Can you see any one of the Bush gang facing a Dems.-controlled Congressional panel?)

Both the weakness and strength of our democracy is that once election day has passed, the one with the most votes takes office. Demonstration in retrospect of shameless lying / character assassination, etc. by the winner(s) does not invalidate an election and force a new election.

It could stand reform, but ultimately what that would probably mean is that common political practices would have to outlawed.

If you are interested in the subject, think about trying to enforce something like that. And, who would replace political candidates for elective office if politicians were prohibited from playing politics in its present day form?
