CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The number of active registered voters in Nevada topped 1.3 million in December as Democrats extended their registration lead over Republicans.

Figures released Wednesday by the secretary of state's office shows Democrats now hold a 100,000 registration advantage over the GOP. In southern Nevada's Clark County, the lead is 137,000 and represents a gain of 10,000 since the November election.

Statewide, Democrats account for 42 percent of all active Nevada voters, while 34 percent are Republicans.

Nearly 18 percent are registered as nonpartisan and the rest are affiliated with a minor political party.

Sometimes a clear majority just means that all the fools are on the same side. So be it. My condolences. The conservative minority is still better positioned to weather the coming storm that has been created by the so-called "progressives." (1) We believe the only real help anyone should expect will probably come from ourselves, our families and our friends. Expecting the government to legally rob the resources of someone else to give to us is not only dishonorable, it's not dependable. We are the ones who don't trust or believe the government and we definitely don't believe that the government will be there to help us in any substantial way should some calamity occur and we need them. (2) Many of us believe that the laws-of-the-land have been subverted toward injustice and have even been made complicit in the criminal activity of the state. (3) Most of us are gun owners who feel that the 2nd amendment was intended toward more than owning arms just for hunting or for a "well regulated" militia. Good luck to all of us but especially to the progressives. You brought this upon us. For your sake I hope the checks keep coming.
