It appears Democracy works in Nevada. Politicians that got in trouble in the past term all were thrown out in primary elections yesterday. A County Commissioner indicted for kickbacks..gone. A State Assemblyman, in trouble for double-dipping (not in the George Costanza way)..gone. And the best news...Bob Beers, a strong economic conservative in the State Assembly wins the Republican primary for the State Senate. It's not much, but it's a start...but I don't think we'll be rid of Harry Reid for quite a while.
are you sure you meant Democracy? I thought we were in a Representative Republic?
You are correct, sir. I was sloppy with the language.
Now we just need some of this in NJ. Unfortunately, all the cemetaries vote DemocRAT every year...
