This Tuesday, voters will go to the polls in the midterm elections. Here in South Carolina, easily one of the goofiest states in the country, we’re also electing a new governor.
I figured I’d offer an election-themed edition for this week.
- First to Play Last Week: Mika, of Mika’s Lab. Congratulations!
(According to the rules, “First to Play” requires you to be the first to include the link to the specific entry in which you answered the questions, not just the general link to your blog.)
Here are this week’s “Saturday Six” questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal…but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! Permission is not granted to copy the questions to message boards for the purpose of having members answer and play along there. Enjoy!
1. Barack Obama ran on a theme of change. Overall, how much in Washington do you think has actually changed?
2. Is the country better off when one party has the White House and the other has a majority in Congress, or are we generally better off when one party has a majority in both at the same time?
3. What’s the biggest fear you have related to health care?
4. Should the government be able to operate in the red, or should Congress be forced to balance its budget every year?
5. Are you more likely or less likely to re-elect incumbents this time around?
6. Are you more likely or less likely to vote for the opposite party you voted for in 2008?
If you have a Reader’s Choice question you’d like to see asked (and answered), send me an email! I’d love to be able to include it in a future edition of the Saturday Six.
