A Liberal Supermajority

Interesting article:

If the current polls hold, Barack Obama will win the White House on November 4 and Democrats will consolidate their Congressional majorities, probably with a filibuster-proof Senate or very close to it. Without the ability to filibuster, the Senate would become like the House, able to pass whatever the majority wants....

Gun ban's a coming buddy. Stock up on 30 round doublestacks and wait for the ban. I bought 15 round beretta m92 mags for $18 before the ban, sold for$150 during the ban.

No gun ban first, requirements on ammo come first, then the guns.

For those that say "they won't mean my shells or guns" I say "wait awhile".

I"d be on board with most of that. Sadly, not near as much ever gets done in a supermajority as the other side typically fears. In our current era of public 'awareness' (if only through the media) of political ongoings, outcries seem to limit any party dominated government. It will, in the end, have hardly more impact than a typical majority.

I think that they will take this as a sign that America is ready for socialism and liberal control. We are getting what they (libs) asked for. We need them to control our lives and they are happy to do what ever they can to help.

MD has a Democrat controlled legislature and Governor. Every session the Republicans and few remaining conservative Democrats get legislatively raped, publicly, loudly and without a thank you. That control over the last 30 years (with the exception of 2002-06 with a Republican Governor) has given us limited firearms choices, a ten day waiting period for handguns, a handgun roster that lists "legal handguns", required anti-hunters on all DNR advisory boards dealing with hunting, a concealed carry law that means no concealed carry (you can only get one if your life has been threatened in front of witnesses and you'll still usually be denied), a legislative session last year meant to cut $500 million from the budget instead ended with $1.5 billion more in spending and increased taxes across the board. The new thing is since gas consumption is down the gas tax needs to go up a quarter.
A super majority is bad news whether state or national.

If it comes down like that it is a clear reflection of how bad the Republicans have been and how unhappy the American people are with poor their poor leadership.
It is an important reason we have elections.

PF, I don't think you understood, with the single exception a Republican has not been governor here since Agnew, nor has the legislature been Republican since at least the 20's so your extrapolation about Republican misdeeds doesn't work. In fact the sole Republican, Bob Ehrlich, was defeated for a second term while maintaining a 60% approval rating. Of course the winning candidate, Martin O'Malley, didn't run against Ehrlich but against President Bush.

I don't think you understood rmh. He was referring to the country, not your state. He said the AMERICAN people were unhappy. Although the Republicans are not solely responsible for the problems in this country, they have had 8 years in the White House, and 6 of the last 8 years in control of Congress. That’s 14 of 16 combined years. They are being held responsible for our problems by the majority of the independents in this country.
