13. I live in Oklahoma. We have 1) a Governor who refused $58 million

to help build the health exchange, 2) an Attorney General continually files lawsuits against federal laws or he has no hope of winning or in favor of unconstitutional laws that are idiotic state legislature passed, 3) a labor commission that hates labor, especially state employees, and 4) a state legislature that, despite being anti big government and thinks that the federal government passed laws that interfere with our rights sure wants to try to legislate their religious beliefs on the masses and send women back to the dark ages. I know a lot of co-workers who are tea party type conservatives who are totally anti-Obama and think taxes and the health care bill are both unconstitutional which is funny as they are state workers who are paid by taxes. Some of the anti-affordable health care act would have a hard time getting health care in the private sector because of preexisting conditions. These people are just plain idiots and so irrational that you can't talk common sense with them. I am stuck here until at least reach retirement.

There is not enough money that anybody could pay me to vote Republican in the general election. At this point in time I don't even care who the Democrats run, I will vote party line because they could not possibly run anybody worse then a Republican here. By holding my nose and registering as a Republican I will at least have the opportunity to vote against bat shit crazy in the primary.

It is funny, I noticed on election day that my cousin's husband was running against an incumbent in his race (I don't pay to much attention to ads on TV). I looked at his campaign's web page and face book page. After seeing who friended his face book page I didn't care if he married my cousin, I would not have voted for him in the Republican primary. Sally Kern, one of the most bat shit crazies in the State Legislature was listed as a friend. I mentioned this to a friend at work and she stated that she never would have thought of looking at social media when selecting a candidate to vote for.
