120. But yet they DON'T even "govern"
Most of them seem to see government as their own personal piggy bank for themselves and their cronies, as well as a tool to enforce whatever kind of *morality* and social order that they happen to believe in. For many of them, government isn't about making it sure things run smoothly or competently. For many of them, government is all about getting power and making sure nobody else gets even close to getting any say about what happens to them. That's why they howl so loudly and scream about Democrats "stealing" elections and being illegitimate whenever we end up winning. They seem to believe that THEY and they alone are entitled to wield power in this country thus to them any electoral success by the Democrats HAS to be illegitimate and abnormal.

The modern day Republican Party-it's goals and recent history- should be "Exhibit A" to support the case that it's simply NOT a good idea to vote for people who ADVERTISE that they are anti-government!!! :banghead:
