I rather doubt it.  Independents can sway elections as they did the last one.  Just depends on how they feel.  The polls suggest that it's fairly close right now so I think, yet again, the independents will decide how this one will go.  I think the current administration is nervous, but it's no slam dunk for the competition either.   It's usually quite hard to not elect a sitting President no matter what the party he represents.  However, it has been done in the past.  It will be very interesting this Fall.  The Health Care issue may be front and center on voters minds but again polls suggest (by a slim majority) that the electorate wants to get on with other business.  I know you guys don't want to hear that but I'm just relaying what I've seen on the 'net.  It has to be true. ;)

Jim, I agree. The health care thing is something to be dealt with but people still want jobs and a better economy. Folks will have to decide if they are better off now or if if things will get worse under the current 'leadership'.

That will be one of the telling points for the current admin. and voters.  Am I better off now or not?  The incumbent may win the election but totally lose the legislative branches.  Fun times.

So I take it you didn't last election?  If so, you could be one of the 'swing' voters that will decide this upcoming election.

Here's a quiz I found on the Constitution....I got 73%...missed 4.  Not so good on the mechanics of how and who put it together.

I got 100%.


Well, not really, but since there was no link, I graded myself.   :rotflmao:

7 pages of what?

You don't trust the gubment with your healthcare needs?  I mean like take the post office for example, the mail has been reliable for years and its gubment runs with your tax dollars and a friendly union as well!?

Maybe we should have the post office run health care.

I know, I know, very hard to believe.  There was a trick question or two on Federal Judge rulings and who signed it.  See, I'm only partly human after all.

I'm not sure that would be a good idea.

Having worked for the USPS in the past, and, having family members who have also worked for the USPS, Dad, Uncle and two cousins...
I have to agree with VJ on this one. It would be a very scary move.  :o

Why not?  The Postal Service wont screw up health care any worse than the department of Obamacare.

It might work, just dont get sick or need major surgery on a Sunday. Of course your rates will increase 39 cents every year just like a stamp.

Might not be any babies delivered on Sat. soon. The ambulance ride to the hospital in those little carrier trucks might be uncomfortable too.
