    Their ("Neo and bigreb") posts are a lot more straight forward than your "rambling". I would believe either of them before I would consider one of your post to have any substantial information. Wish it wasn't so, just know from trying to have conversations with you in the past.

    Isn't staying home "a vote" with your feet (or lack of using your feet)?

    Voter turnout in a midterm election has NEVER been even close to a general election so comparison between 2010 and 2008 is an exercise in futility.

    But compared to other midterm elections, the voter turnout in 2010 was up, not down from the previous midterm when the GOP was voted out of power in the House and Senate.

    I see your effort at fraudulence was already soundly refuted by Foxfyre.

    Comparing a midterm to a general election with a significant historic element in it.

    Yeah. You're honest. Not.

    Sure. But it's not in any way an endorsement of conservative or teabagger dogma. It's intent was a protest against the abandonment of core campaign promises, like the Public Option, Gitmo, and watered down financial reform and general capitulation to the Rightwing. We will see if it was a bad idea or not.

    logical4you attacks the personality, giving up the discussion. That's OK.

    It's not about total numbers, it's about percentage. The same percentage turnout in 2010, from Democrats, would have re-won the House.
