Yep!! I just printed sample ballots for my precinct and marked them... I don't want to take a chance at even accidentally voting for a dang demoKraut this go-round!! I thought they'd taken away our ability to vote straight ticket, but my sample ballot had a spot for that too... I still went thru it and individually marked each name JIC...

I always mark each one. I'm very untrusting in marking a straight ticket.

BTW, Cruzs lead is up two points since early last week

I would love to see a double digit lead in about 3 weeks. Double digits would send a stronger message.

I would love to see a double digit win. A double digit lead in two weeks may cause complacency.

My wife got a call from one of the idiots from the Beto campaign while she was taking a nap. Couple that with all of the flyers that were dumped on our doorstep in spite of having a sign, I'm not worried about her ever voting Democrat.

Yup, I would have probably sided with the liberal at that age as well. Young and stuipd with zero worldly knowledge. Grew up poor in a single parent household knowing zero about politics so anyone who offered nore money, more perks, and more "stuff" was great in my limited view.

Then I got a real (40+hr/wk) job and started paying taxes. Recieved my first W2, saw how much taxes were taken out, did a little research, and realized how dumb I had been! The majority of people I grew up with were and are the same way.

Saw a sign in a resturant saturday. "In order to be old and wise, you must first be young and stupid."

I have a cousin this describes to perfection. She is in her mid 20's with a degree that has no value in the marketplace so she is back in school. Grew up with no money, married a super feminine guy from Chicago with a man bun, only talks about her female friends that are lesbian and/or don't shave their armpits. She had to move out of her moms house because mom is a huge Cruz supporter while she has the Beto fire burning deep inside. Hopefully she comes around one of these days once her or the husband start making some money.

Another cousin is full open borders because her dad is from Mexico. Don't think anything will change her opinion on that one.

So true.

That old quote comes to mind. It's something like this - If a person is not liberal at age 20, they have no heart; if they are not conservative by age 40, they have no brain.

Bottom line, things change when someone starts working 40 hours per week and taking care of a family; all while being taxed in some way, shape or form on just about everything. It's all fine and dandy until it's your tax dollars being donated to the cause.

I've been saying for years we somehow have to force people back into working.

Hoping Trump puts the hammer down after he gets re-elected and cuts welfare and makes people work.

Another long line in early voting today everywhere. I guess we will find out soon if they were a majority Beto or Cruz voters! If you haven’t voted these mid terms are not the one to sit out.

Historic turnouts at the majority of polling places statewide.. the title of this thread is becoming all too real..

I'm absolutely concerned we are about to have a democratic senator.

I got to the library yesterday after work and waited in line for 30 minutes to vote. The line was the same length when I left as when I got there. No doubt, voter turn out is yuge this year. I would not be surprised if we see record turnout numbers for a mid-term election.

I am sweating this race big time. The thought of Beto winning makes me want to puke.

Consider if he loses. They have thrown more money and media at this race than anyone thought possible. The guy has raked in millions from across the country. He's on late night TV shows. He's being promoted by all kinds of celebrities. Beto signs are EVERYWHERE you look. Hopefully after all that, when he loses, these butt clowns will realize that Texas isn't the place for the brand of garbage that Beto represents.

It will be a glorious day when Beto loses. Too bad the libs can't get out of the way so we can find a good replacement for Cruz too. But that won't happen so we have to vote for the only guy we think can win against the liberal invaders.

I voted this morning. The official at the East Montgomery County courthouse did a very good job explaining what is happening with people messing up the straight ticket ballot. What the media is omitting is, when you mess up, there is a page that tells you your vote is about to change. Ill never trust anything ever again unless I see it with my own eyes.

It's easy for me to see why it is as close as it is. When 90% of the media is pushing one candidate. HBO and CNN have even created programming for Beto. Then you have the ones that won't support Cruz because he stood up to trump. Then the ones that say he didn't fight back hard enough. The media and even other R senators are scared of Cruz. He won't do what they want....just to get along
