Here, I assign a point value system on everything that will make me happy (or pissed)

1. Obama gets re-elected stopping TOTAL domination of the government by the tea party plutocrats: 150 points.
2. California passes GMO labeling: 95 points
3. Senator Elizabeth Warren: 90 points
4. Re-electing Sherrod Brown: 90 points
5. Marriage equality is PASSED and PRESERVED in ALL states where there is a ballot initiative for that: 120 points
6. Colorodo AND Washington legalize weed: 100 points
7. Oregon legalizes it: 110 points (more points here because it’s less likely to pass)
8. California ends the death penalty: 120 points
9. California ends the “three strikes” law: 110 points
10. Arkansas passes medical marijuana: 100 points
11. Massachusettes passes medical marijuana: 70 points
12. Assisted suicide passes in Mass: 60 points
13. California Prop 30 passes: 50 points
14. Prop 32 FAILS: 70 points
15. Michigan puts collective bargaining into law: 110 points
16. Minnesota doesn’t pass stupid voter ID: 50 points
17. Question 3 is defeated in NH(this is a poison pill calling for a constitutional convention. The tea party wants it passed to rewrite the constitution). 80 points
18. Frank Guinta and Bass are defeated: 100 points
19. Allen West is toast: 80 points
20. Michelle Bachmann a goner: 80 points
21. Defeating Steve King: 100 points

23. For every “longshot” senate seat won by a democrat: 100 points
24. Missouri raises cigarette tax from 17 cents to 90 cents: 50 points
25. Obama wins, BUT Jill Stein of the Green Party gets 5% of the national vote and the Green Party gets matching funds for next election: 200 points
26. Somehow, stupid sheriff Joe Arpaio gets kicked out: 120 points
27. Obama wins NH: 50 points (I want Obama to win, but NH is the only state that I really care that he wins, because being from a Romney state would be embarrassing)
28. Ovide loses his NH governor dream: 120 points
29. Texas has a house seat that goes blue: 100 points
30. Alan Grayson winning his seat: 120 points
31. Obama does a bunch of executive stuff that benefits the lives of many people: 150 points
32. Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or Boehner cry on national TV or radio: 300 points
33. “Macaca” Allen loses: 100 points
34. Somehow it’s a landslide victory and congress is a sea change and the Senate is comprised of 55+ democrats, and they kill the filibuster and they pass everything progressive that a sea changed progressive house passes: 1,000 points.

Let’s see what this adds up to after election day. GOTV! Make your own and keep score. Oodles of fun will be had when we accomplish more progressive change in a single election than we have in a generation.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
