I love voting... seems like no matter how crazy we are leading up to the vote, once you're at the booth everyone is so respectful of one another.

It's a cathartic experience, and there's something beautiful about knowing that the opinions of the people around you have neither more nor less power behind them than your own.

VA is no surprise there. Corey Stewart is a Racist, bigoted, Piece of shit. No wonder Trump loves him. Stood no chance against a centralist like Kaine.

I actually find it alarming that the dumb and uninformed people of the nation have as much influence over an election as the intelligent and informed. That seems to be one of the biggest mistakes ever. The only reason it tends to function is because of the two-party system with near-equivalent demographics. At least when you're on a plane and not in control of the situation, you know the pilot is qualified. Elections are like Joe Six pack flying your airplane, it's terrifying.

For Florida Desantis and Scott just took the lead.



Republicans are currently up 10 to 4 right now. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/11/06/us/elections/results-house-elections.html . I expect this to change sadly.
