According to this first election count (oh yeah, there will be recounts baby), Republicans have taken over the House and the Senate -- mostly by narrow margins.
This election should also be remembered for its thousands of disenfranchised voters -- in all states. As per usual.
We have a serious crisis going on in this country with our elections. I can't even believe this is happening in the United States of America.
Please everybody, insist on the recounts. The news keeps talking about "sweeping victories for the GOP", but when they show the percentages, some of them say "50% - 50%" with the Republican checked as the victor (often with no more than a 100 vote margin).
Remember that this is the same media that decided not to cover the 100,000+ people that marched on Oct 26 on both coasts.
It looks to me that none of these close victories can be taken at face value yet. There's too much at stake here. Let's investigate every one of them. If there's something fishy going on, it's going to take all of us paying very close attention, adding up the numbers, comparing the good notes we've all distributed to each other and coordinating together across all 50 states!
Let's get to the bottom of this guys, while the trail is still hot!
