The election results seem to agree with the poll that I'm running on this blog. That since 1920 when women were allowed to vote, the pro-rape ticket has been a losing one.
Richard Mourdock and Todd Akin held a pro-rape stance but it seems if you say something “legitimately” stupid that effects over half the voters, the electoral process has a way of shutting that whole thing down.
The trillion dollar “war on drugs” will be coming to an end this decade. Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize pot for recreational purposes. So users don't have to go to doctors and say, “I get really anxious when I can't buy weed.” Making the doctors give them a prescription for weed, so they are no longer anxious.
This is how prohibition ended. States stopped enforcing it and the federal law enforcement isn't really designed to handle low level arrests. Although the Obama administration has continued federal enforcement of Pot laws, it should be clear that it is now a losing battle.
In the Senate not only did the Dems hold their majority, but the five new Senators are much more Progressive than the rest of the Senate. Oddly, it wasn't until I read an article on it that I noticed women are at an all time high in the Senate with 18 women Senators.
More states will allow gays to marry. People are realizing that turning a portion of population into second class citizens in order to avoid a small increase in the amount of Couple Dates they are invited to is a bit extreme when a simple, “No thanks we have plans.” works just as well on gay couples as straight couples. I have found that saying, “I'm busy building a kitten army that will force the world to obey my will, just like the cats do!” Not only stops people from inviting me to Couple Dates, but also makes them back away slowly, making sure not to make sudden moves.
Obamacare will become law of the land, this was really its final hurdle. After 2014 when the final parts are put in place it can't be taken away. Healthcare will be a right, not a privilege. Any modifications to it will be working under that framework.
Basically, the nation shall continue to move forward. It wasn't a revolution but we won't be sliding backwards.
