Republicans loose the majority by two seats
Gay Marriage Bans pass in every state they are on the ballot, unfortunately.
I can tell you that there is no good option this election season. If the Republicans win, its more of the same crap. If the Democrats win, it will be the same crap, with some extra crap piled on. Best case scenario, is the one I believe will happen, Republicans keep the Senate (barely) and lose the house and that should gridlock things enough to stop the wreckless spending. Hopefully pressure will cause Rumsfeld to get booted. Also, two options could come from the Republicans losing control of the house and/or Senate, one good one bad. Good scenario is that Republicans remember what conservatism used to be (and still is in intellectual circles) limited government and true just war philosophy. Barry Goldwater type stuff. The bad option is that they become even more bigoted and populist, pushing gay marriage bans, protectionist economic policies, and border fences with lasers to shoot brown people before they can come across.
What will happen? No body knows. Anyone else have election predicitions?
