I am not close to this race but do you think this is an anti-extablishment message, or an immigration reform message, or are you psyched a tea party candidate means an easy democratic win?

I think it has little or nothing to do with immigration or any other issue except the fact that this is the worst Congress in the history of the world. The incumbents need to be fired. Cantor spent millions. Brat? Around $200,000.

That is BIG.

There are no easy wins for Democrats in this district of the Commonwealth of Virginia. I do think registered Democrats and registered Independents (like me) turned out and voted to fire Eric Cantor.

MSNBC is talking immigration. The people I called and reminded to vote did not vote because of Cantor's stance on immigration. They voted to get rid of "Do Nothing" Cantor.

Buh-Bye Eric.

The only thing this represents is how those of us in his district feel about him right now. Cantor is two-faced, can't be trusted, has lost the vision of what it means to be a Republican, and it's time for him to go.

You're welcome, America.

Not sure who it is, but read that they both teach at the same college. That ought to make for some interesting staff meetings as they prep for the fall semester!

Listening to Dave Brat's stump speech. Kind of taken aback at his anti-big business, anti-Wall Street stances. Interesting.

Alloak, what is it that you perceive or know that is different than the opinion writers of Cantor's hometown district & newspaper in an opinion piece today? See quote below:

Brat’s victory also moves the Virginia GOP even further to the right. No one ever could have mistaken Cantor — who organized 50 votes to repeal Obamacare — for a RINO, let alone a limousine liberal. But for many GOP diehards, he was insufficiently confrontational.

He's a professor and doesn't seem like a raving lunatic to me. I am all for all incumbents being fired no matter who they are and what party they are from. Reminds me of when Speaker of the House Tom Foley was dumped back in 1994. Nothing really changes.

In other words they replaced a total A-Hole with a complete D-Bag.

12% turnout. Sheesh. Not much of a valid direct reason as Cantor had won previous primaries with lower turnout by large margins, but...I'd love to see the chaos that would ensue in our country if more people bothered to vote in elections, primaries or not.

From an interview last night with Mr. Brat...

"Our founding was built by people who were political philosophers, and we need to get back to that, away from this kind of cheap political rhetoric of right and left. I ran on free markets. I don't know if those are right or left. I ran on rule of law, property rights, I ran on immigration. I don't think those are right or left issues. I think those are just free market Constitutional issues."

Here's to hoping we can find a whole lot more "D-Bags" like Mr. Brat.

Very easy to come up with philosophical responses after the fact which extend beyond how he actually campaigned. He ran primarily as a one trick pony - immigration. It is all that was needed to defeat Cantor (AWOL in his district).

It was an open primary in which Independents and Dems voted not for BRAT but against Cantor. This helped Brat in his bid.

Did they ignore his voting record? His voting record on TARP, debt ceiling increases, sequestration cuts, Patriot Act provisions to name a few. His support of amnesty for illegals.

He's your typical Beltway career politician, deal-making slimeball RINO.

I am surprised as Doug is usually pro big business and pro Wall Street. I as anti tea party as I am will give him a listen to see what he is all about before I judge him but usually it is only a matter of time before tea party candidates do or say something that pushes me away from supporting them.

So since he voted on a few things counter to the rigid narrative that just might have been needed at the time to stimulate the economy, he's what your type label as "a rino".

Look at the details of what EC talked about re: amnesty. It's not some far reaching plan as the other side of the aisle desires. It's very minor in comparison. But that makes him that dreaded word - "a RINO"?

Remember Cantor undercutting Boehner at the debt negotiations for a grand bargain? Would a rino do that?

So alloak, back to this whole concept of rino. What is it that you want - just what you have now - a GOP house that is rigid as $hit, says no for the sake regardless of what may good for the American people, no sense of compromise? Or is it better to have some false sense of principle to assure that one is not labeled as a rino?

What is better in your mind - have the GOP begin to compromise for the benefit of this country or avoid being labeled a rino?

There are a few rigid ones, but not nearly enough yet. We need adults in the room.

I don't have any interest in working with or compromising with Liberals -- I want to defeat Liberals. Too much compromise got us where we are today. In the interim, if they want to compromise with the more rigid GOP members that would be fine. On balance, I'd prefer gridlock.

Well said Alloak.

Those that think there is room for compromise are deluding themselves that we are still a wealthy, credibly run, powerful nation. We are bankrupt, and exist as we do today only through the artificial manipulations of currency. Once that runs it course, as it has for every other nation in history that has gone this route, our weaknesses will be laid bare and the insanity of believing there was room to negotiate our way through this will become obvious. Even for those who still believe everything is Bush's fault.

The whole premise that anything coming out of Washington is good for the American people bears no serious scrutiny. Everything coming out of Washington is designed for the power and control of the ruling elite. The country was built and became great by free men and free markets operating under reasonably equal rule of law. Its downfall has been the slow and steady conversion of that to centralized cronyism from Washington DC. Until we move back towards those original principles, we stand no chance of improving our situation.

I can't tell if you're actually being serious with your post. If so, the only response I can offer is "wow".

Do you really believe that a large group comprised mainly of lawyers can deliberate, and devise an effective plan to deal with something as multitudinous and complex as a $17 Trillion economy......much less a health care system? I don't.

For whatever reasons, the government has exploded to point that it believes it has a role in EVERY area. The government sees itself in a role that has no bounds, and compromise has led to that explosion. I firmly believe that doing less would have helped more.

Every government program winds up the same, all plagued by money problems.....And money has become a big problem, because we can't even come close to being able to afford our own government!

Take care of the basics, as laid out in the Constitution....AND STAY THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY!!
