With what looks like a 32-seat victory in the House and an apparent one-seat margin in the Senate, barring a switch by Joe "Wish He'd Lost Too" Lieberman, Demoncrats now control the U.S. Congress
. It's a new day.
First thing on the agenda needs to be voting reform. Electronic voting machines need to be banned, and attempts to suppress, intimidate, harass, purge, or otherwise disenfranchise the elecorate need to be met with huge jailtime, preferably life imprisonment. It is beyond unacceptable that voter suppression has become an normalized strategy in American politics.
Penalties for voter fraud and ballot-box stuffing should be commensurately increased as well. People need to trust their election system. Right now no one does.
I like vote-by-mail
and see no reason why Oregon's system shouldn't be adopted nationwide.
Beyond that, the sky's the limit. Leftist moonbats like me run the country now. I look forward to being able to animal-marry one straight dog and gay-animal-marry two gay dogs in a polygamous marriage ceremony by June -- and having the whole thing covered by welfare.
