**Big Grin**

There's little folk can do about the Broun sort of legislators in some areas... except ridicule them and hope someone finds a sane candidate in 2 years.

(Reuters) - Florida Democrat Earl K. Wood and Alabama Republican Charles Beasley won their respective elections but they will not take office.

Both men died weeks before the November 6 election yet managed to beat their very much alive opponents by comfortable margins.

Wood died on October 15 from natural causes at age 96, during his campaign for a 12th term as Orange County Tax Collector in Orlando, Florida.

Let's raise our glasses to the deceased candidates. May they rest in peace, knowing that we still believe in them.

We're moving to the middle-of-nowhere, Georgia shortly, ( think "Deliverance") so Darwin may be our candidate.

What kind of excuse for a democracy is it where candidates for office don't have to compete for votes?

For God's sake you should at very least have Monster Raving Loony Party candidates...

Well, the law stipulates that the election must be held, even if there is only one candidate for the office. This sort of thing often happens in some of the smaller state and municipal elections. In Washington State, for example, there were a few State Supreme Court Judges who ran unopposed, along with a couple of county offices.

What this tends to imply is that the incumbent is doing a sufficiently good job that no one feels impelled to challenge them for the office.

But the option—in all offices, including President of the United States—of writing in names is on the ballot just in case. There HAVE been instances when a write-in candidate has defeated a candidate on the ballot.

Also, it DOES give people an opportunity to give a solo candidate a stern (even if sometimes humorous) message, such as in the case under discussion.

Don... "What this tends to imply is that the incumbent is doing a sufficiently good job that no one feels impelled to challenge them for the office."

That don't say much good about Georgia, USA, IMO. Do they have schools? Can people that live there read?

What it really implies is that no local opposition party can find a challenger who has a chance of winning.

I just don't understand how people cannot UNDERSATND evolution AND God. They are both simple concepts. One proven and the other is "a good way to go". Accept BOTH and God's yer uncle... Uncle Bob. After all, Bob created evolution... didn't he?
