I'm usually a bit of a US politics junkie. After all, it was a great pity that we lost the colonies all those years ago and if we hadn't, then the world wouldn't have the fascinating country we have today. However, these upcoming midterms have barely piqued my interest this year. The results seem a forgone conclusion, a republican victory in the senate, and probably political gridlock thereafter, which isn't much of a change TBH, and nothing much interesting happening until the 2016 presidential elections. Anyway, what do you all think?
