I cannot copy the results. Daines Voted yes on everything but I think #4. He will not vote to end all foreign aid. Anyway,as far as I know Amanda Curtis would not fill this out. I really do not see how it could have hurt her.Just about anything I think would help her at this point so I don`t know why she did not fill the survey out.

And the stacked survey is stacked. And stupid. Taking a pledge not to 'raise taxes' means giving up on governance and doing what one's corporate masters tell them to do.

These may make quick sounds bites (seriously? Worrying about gold & silver coinage in 2014?) but mostly they just repeat the party line without an ounce of thought behind them.

Much like Mr. Daines.

ETA: Not even a Republican party line line but a far right Tea Bagger extremist line. Would someone PLEASE explain to these people about what happened in this country between 1860 and 1865!

Speaking of Surveys...my deceased brother in law received four that chewed him out for not having Mr. Muggli fill out and confirm that he is for the Right To Work Law in Montana. It bragged that Mr. Holmland answered Yes, Yes, Yes...in favor of reviving that legislation. Very much in favor of it. So..I gave it to Mr. Muggli and it was the first he had ever heard of it. There is the chance that surveys do not always land in the targeted hands??? Let's hope that crummy law never gets passed in Montana.

Gunnar completed the survey.How hard can it be?But it is too hard for Amanda Curtis??I know she is the underdog but I always think the underdog has a chance.If you cannot fill out a simple survey and tell people what you stand for what is it going to be like when you are called to vote.Dunno,obama got elected on his voting record of not voting or not even showing up.That is kind of what we got also.Amanda Curtis is going to lose and partially because she could not stand up and say I STAND FOR THIS.She tossed her underdog vote and underdog voters on to the street.

Oh bullpoop. Amanda has been extremely articulate on what she supports. She doesn't need to fill out some procreateing one-off bullpoop survey to placate those who have no intention of voting for her in the first place. Surveys like this get in the way of actual governing. There is a fair amount of "circumstance" in passing a piece of legislation.

Do better, Jett.

Ok.No surveys.Just guess what the candidate is going to do.ABSOLUTELY no taking a stand on issues.Democrat candidates will not even answer if the support obama or if they voted for him.You do not have to disclose your vote,but why not just admit,yes,you are ashamed you voted for obama and you are ashamed that you supported obama and you are coming clean because you want to win this election.Kind of looks like the best way for a Democrat to win an election right now.
Bad election cycle for Democrats.Tough choice.Tell the truth, or try to win the election.

All of the democrats I know, including myself, are very proud of the opportunity to vote for President Obama. He has been the best conservative president we have had since Eisenhower (which was slightly before my time). The democrats problem is they seem afraid to go on offense. They ought to be educating voters on things like Keynesian economics and why it is superior to the current austerity approach of the Tea Party. They ought to be pushing harder on raising the minimum wage. They ought to be championing single-payer healthcare, bringing our troops home and beating our swords into plowshares.

Jett,
You are exactly the kind of person they are looking for. Tea Party mentality to the core. Unable to think, reason or understand for yourself you parrot the words your "leaders" spout.

As for your commentary about what Democrats think you are so off base that it's funny! But being a typical tea bagger you know what everything thinks don't you? It has to be true because you read it somewhere in your propaganda.

I fear for the future of my children and grandchildren because of nutjobs like you.

Gunnar is not running for office and he took the survey.Did he find it difficult?I do not believe so.He took the survey and said "this is what I stand for."He is not afraid to say "this is what I stand for."I doubt it took very long for him to take the survey.Either I agree with what he believes in or I don`t,it does not matter.The thing that matters is that he stood up and said this is what I believe in.Amanda Curtis had a free shot in this election,nothing at all to lose.Too bad you have to guess what she stands for.Vote for her.Maybe we can find out what she stands for after she gets in office.Amanda had a shot at the title.She was in the ring.She blew it miserably.I think she should have stepped aside and let someone else who was a whole bunch hungrier have this shot.Daines will now probably be in until he retires.
Myself?I just find it hard to support someone just because they are a Democrat or a Republican.

David Schott.I started reading from the link you posted.I quit when it stated something about enslaving africans.Whomever was writing has no idea about slavery.Blatant ignorance like that and I quit reading immediately.Ignorance laced with stupidity.I believe over 50% of black americans in west virginia for example owned slaves when it was legal.The United States and UK pretty much outlawed slavery.Anyone who has ever had slavery in their family,as I do should thank the US and the UK.That or blame them because now the law applies to them also and not just their owners.

Jett, here is a voting guide you can understand; voting is like driving a car... putting the car in D makes it go forward, putting it in R makes it go backward. Vote D and the country will go forward. Vote R and we'll go backwards. All you need to know.

The "yellow dogs" are all barking.

Much ado about nothing.

Today the dumb-ass Democrats will vote for Democrats and the dumb-ass Republicans will vote for Republicans and tomorrow the winners will take their place in the receiving line.

Nothing will have changed.
