An Election About Everything

Not only is this election not about nothing, it is being fought over exactly the kinds of things that ought to determine our elections.
It’s about the size and scope of government. It’s about the rule of law. It’s about the security of the citizenry. It’s about competence. It’s about integrity. It’s about honor. It’s about a government that makes promises to those who have defended the country and then fails those veterans, again and again and again. It’s about a president who offers soothing reassurances on his sweeping health care reforms and shrugs his shoulders when consumers learn those assurances were fraudulent. It’s about government websites that cost billions but don’t function and about “smart power” that isn’t very smart. It’s about an administration that cares more about ending wars than winning them, and that claims to have decimated an enemy one day only to find that that enemy is still prosecuting its war against us the next. It’s about shifting red lines and failed resets.

Your Say

This election could have been about all those things but the GOP showed no leadership or skill like in '94 and are relying simply on people being sick of Democrats. They are offering no alternative, no plan, no goals, no leadership, no vision. Just "we don't suck as much as them."

Elections are about people that are more like animals than people. They have been programmed to believe they need a leader, for all sorts of silly assed reasons. It's embarrassing to realize how primitive some people are. But there are less and less of them each election so that is encouraging.
