This to me is the most significant aspect of the election. The House seats changing is about emotion, "we don't have jobs, we're broke, and we're scared". Fair enough. But in spite of that sentiment, anti-tax measures from one end of the country to the other were defeated. The people's reason speaking? http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/11/03/major-anti-tax-measures-fail/ Edit: Oh, I find this significant because it "kicks a leg out" from under the philosophical chair the (far) right stands on.
