    No big idea; I request that at least one member of this forum, from each state, post their views of what is going on in their state this election night.

    Please check your rhetoric at the door; you had plenty of time to do that before tonight; there nothing left to do now but wait for the results.

    As usual, I'll set the example.

    State: Tennessee
    Electoral votes: 11

    This is my first election from this state; after years of filing absentee ballots to the state of Michigan, I'd feel now that Tennessee is where I want to live.

    MAIN FEDERAL ISSUE
    Presidential election- George W. Bush vs. John Kerry
    My vote- John Kerry
    Why- In short, DESPITE OF HIS FLIP/FLOPPING, he's proven to be the lesser of the two evils.


    MAIN STATE ISSUE
    Third congressional district- Zach Wamp (R) vs John Wolfe (D)

    My vote- Zach Wamp

    Why- The two greatest administrations of our generation were the Reagan and Clinton presidencies. During these administrations, both had made compromises simply because they both faced a congress dominated by the opposing party; it worked out. I'm convinced that a presidency of one party, combined with a congress of another party, will get the job done within the next few years.


    MAIN LOCAL ISSUE
    A provision in which our city can pass ordinances that can go into effect immediately, versus waiting six months after the measure passes.

    My vote- No

    Why- We need time to be aware of and adjust to new legislation; this city passes ordinances late into the evening; under this provision, you can find yourself breaking the law and not even know it within hours after an ordinance has been passed.

    I'll keep you updated on the results here; I ask of you to provide me information of what you think is going on in your state!

    Rhetoric refers to long winded speech making; I'd told you what I'd voted for and why; in other words my little ignorant friend, it's my way of saying keep your posting simple. Well, at least I'm not running around the forum, like a little b#$ch, screaming like I need to be b#$chslapped. Here, let me solve that for you.
