    When are people going to wake up. The establishment GOP and the Democrats are no different than one another. Look at this video and dispute that:

    Democrats likely swung GOP contest

    To clinch the GOP nomination, Cochran's backers turned to Democrats, especially African-Americans who make up 37% of the state's population.

    Cochran's supporters actively reminded voters of the senator's work to secure federal funds for programs relied upon by African-Americans, like Head Start and certain medical centers in the state.

    It's the kind of message that Republicans barely tout these days, given the renewed focus on fiscal conservatism. But Cochran supporters viewed Democrats as key to their strategy to knock out McDaniel after the incumbent barely kept his reelection hopes alive in the primary.

    Mississippi law allows anyone to vote in the runoff, meaning Democrats could go to the polls so long as they didn't vote in the Democratic primary and they don't plan to support their party's candidate in the general election.
    Less then 1500 votes won it.........the Mississippi law sounds confusing to me. I have some rental property there and thought about retiring there. I need to figure out how to vote if I'm going to live there and I still will need to find a young lady to push my wheelchair.

    I have to ask when the Republicans (can't say conservatives anymore) align with Democrats to defeat a republican candidate who stands against the status quo then are Republicans any better than Democrats. Since the Dems feared then perhaps he was the right choice.

    HATTIESBURG, Miss. — With an unusual assist from African-American voters and other Democrats who feared his opponent, Senator Thad Cochran on Tuesday beat back a spirited challenge from State Senator Chris McDaniel, triumphing in a Republican runoff and defeating the Tea Party in the state where the movement’s hopes were bright.

    “We all have a right to be proud of our state tonight,” Mr. Cochran said at his victory party in Jackson, Miss. “This is your victory.”


    Mr. McDaniel, speaking in Hattiesburg, was angry, and he did not hesitate to say so. “There is something a bit strange, there is something a bit unusual about a Republican primary that’s decided by liberal Democrats,” he said.


    He accused Mr. Cochran of abandoning the conservative movement. “So much for principles,” he said.


    Mr. McDaniel, an uncompromising conservative, relied on the muscle of outside groups and the enthusiasm of conservative voters who are weary of Mr. Cochran’s old-school Washington ways.
    Whole story here

    I've about had it with the Republican party but I don't know what else to do except to not vote and let the Republicans suffer the consequences. Since the Repubs and the Dems are pretty much the same, it seems that America is screwed no matter what.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
