    If your choice loses, do you want your Senator and Congressperson to find ways to cooperate with the next administration?
    Or do you prefer your representative 'VOTE NO!' on every issue, as the current Republicans have done?

    gridlock is not a totally bad thing:
    -gays got their marriage
    -slow and not totally inclusive but the US economy has recovered to the envy of most developed nations
    -i made money last few years icon_cool.gif
    -no big wars
    -cannabis is legal

    governments are not generally forward looking anyways. For example little they can do short term to prevent recession. You gota ask if you personally made money during an administration and if yes; live well and share.

    there is a real danger if America becomes more conservative just as if the tilt goes significantly left and or socialistic.

    Gridlock was intended. There are some things where the founders did not want government to be too efficient.

    I'm totally ok with Obama having to use a phone and pen. It means a lot of it will be rescinded or found unconstitutional.

    Opposing parties will never escape gridlock. If there is a real problem I'm sure it will get solved.

    In the meantime less is better.

    No. Gridlock is essential, it prevents starry-eyed "progressive" dickheads from ramming through all manner of destructive and idiotic programs.
