    Richard Gallerani, 50, a truck driver and independent from Plymouth, wanted change. “This is the emancipation of Massachusetts from the Democratic regime that there has been since Ted Kennedy,” he declared. “We need some balance.”

    Some very thoughtful comments from an average working class independent- "We need some balance".

    I just saw a DEMOCRATIC poster stating that independents which make up the majority of the vote out there have split for Brown 2-1, to 3-1 and that he has captured 25% of the DEMOCRATIC vote. We will see, but don't take anything for granted, you Brown voters need to get out and vote, please, please please and I will continue to pray for a Brown win.:eusa_pray::eusa_pray::eusa_pray:

    I'll take the MA Revolution seriously when they kick out clowns like Barney Frank and Deval Patrick.
    MA has elected the worst politicians, at least as far back as Dukakis. Their gun laws are worse than CA.To think it's all going to change in one election is wishful in the extreme.
    But it might be a good sign that enough really is enough.

    I'm not sure a big government Republican potentially beating a big government Democrat counts as "emancipation."

    A Brown win would end the filibuster proof senate that the liberal democrats in power currently enjoy.

    We can work on Barney Frank later, Leader of the mortgage banking crisis, leading us off the cliff to the collapse of our banking system under his direction and direct supervision.:clap2:

    Fact: If the "Liberal Democrats" in Congress truly did have a filibuster proof senate, Health Care Reform would of been passed long ago.

    But hey, don't let facts get in your way. :thup:

    Check your facts dogbert, they HAVE a FILIBUSTER PROOF senate. It's the democratic senators and congressmen who are throwing the fits about their own bill. Of course, they have had little say about what's in it, because it has been written in the back rooms by Pelosi, Reid and Obama. Hell, the democrats don't even know what's in it, because they have not been a part of it. It's been hidden from them as well as it's been hidden from the public.

    The entire "magical 60 votes" is bullshit if the Democrats grew a spine.
