So . . .GA6 and SC5 remain repub.
Okay. So what! In the last 7yrs the dems have lost well over a thousand seats across the board and now the GOP has control of BOTH the Senate and the HoR -- and now the WH. Yet, are we even close to REAL Obamacare repeal; or tax reform? No. Are we closer to REAL spending cuts or a Balanced Budget? Nuh-uh. How about the runaway costs of SocSec; any closer to any reform there? HAH!
So, excuse me for not popping the bubbly over the GA or SC "wins". I grade on actual legislative RESULTS - not merely on intentions. We get enough of that w/ the bullsh*t COMMON CORE education system.
That's my not-so-humble opinion!
"I'm worried that these elections can have the same scenario that got AL Franken (MN) into the Senate."
It seems that GA is "finding" more ballots. Kemp is losing his lead. Then there's AZ. And there's still FL.
The "Al Frankin scenario"?
Luis Your humor welcome it is both funny and dire prediction the may be what we must face and fight against. Only bright side is that the already embalmed looking fellow, Joe Biden, would be knocked off the debate podium early. Of course having no sense of pride he surely would show-up campaigning for the O's.
Didn't I see a video where that Demonrat Oprah showed up for actually was encouraging illegals to vote. That woman is not good for GA and I might add her cheese has never been on a cracker.
OUT FOR BLOOD
While on his campaign trail, Barack Insane Obama called for a "civilian force"; and he got it.
Election Day 2008:
The militant pro-Islamist gang known as The Black Panthers were involved in Voter Intimidation and threaten white voters (and their babies) at a predominantly republican precinct in Philadelphia.
Ten yrs later the vicious gang has ramped it up. Over the weekend the Black Panther's were in Georgia "campaigning" for Stacey Adams - brandishing AK47s and other weapons.
"Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun." - Mao Tse Tung
In just 36 hrs the voters will have decided which direction they want the country to go. Will it be Freedom or even MORE lies, threats and a future US gov't that will rule through fear and tyranny? We had a taste of it under the control of Obama, Holder and Lynch. And it was exactly that: Just a "taste".
uh-huh, saw it - is the ak47 the smallest gun in the pic? a couple of those look bigger+badder to me but i'm not a gun expert or even close.
(the extremists progressives are making it easy for Rs to do several pre-election daisy commericials)
Appreciate you posting your thoughts Luis.
Yes it is a choice between tyranny of a socialist/communist state or Liberty.
LOL since the left are for taking guns do you suppose they will disarm the Panthers?
Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined. – Patrick Henry
Interesting! Look who the Communist party is backing! Are you voting for a commie?
COMMUNIST PARTY, USA - "WE LOVE ANDREW GILLUM AND STACEY ABRAMS" – MUST WATCH 2 MIN VIDEO!
When the Communist Party, USA endorses you for Governor of Florida, you know you're a political disaster for the State of Florida! It's the same for Georgia!
Yep, it's true, the Communist Party, USA, selected several current candidates who most reflect their Marxist policies. Two of the most prominent candidates are Andrew Gillum, socialist candidate for Florida Governor and Stacey Abrams, socialist candidate for Georgia Governor.
Question...How in the world are we even considering having someone supported by real live Communists as legitimate candidates for Governors of significant, capitalist states!!
Watch this 2-minute video and read the Commie endorsement!
BE AN EDUCATED VOTER!
PROTECT YOUR STATE AND
PROTECT THE REPUBLIC!
IS YOUR CANDIDATE INCLUDED HERE? MAKE YOUR STAND AND TELL THEM YOU DON'T WANT THEM REPRESENTING YOU OR MANAGING YOUR STATE!
From CPUSA source:
The southern Governor races:
Georgia: Stacey Abrams would be the nation’s first African American woman governor;
Florida: Andrew Gillum would be his state’s first African American governor;
Maryland: Ben Jealous would be his state’s first African American governor;
Arizona: David Garcia would be his state’s first Mexican American governor in 44 years.
Minnesota – Ilhan Omar (Keith Ellison’s open seat) would be the first Muslim woman in Congress from her state.
Michigan – Rahida Tlaib (CD 13 Conyer’s former seat) would be the first Muslim woman in Congress from her state.
New York – Alexandria Ocasio Cortez would be a democratic socialist in Congress from her state;
Massachusetts – Ayanna Pressley, the first African American on Boston’s City Council, would be the first African American member of Congress from her state;
Vermont – Christine Hallquist would be the first transgender woman governor in her state.
MAKE YOUR STATE THINK AGAIN!
The communist/socialist etc have always operated among us through the decades what is different today is that they are emboldened. The democrats are using this in their goal of breaking Americans back --
As Levin said the midterm is about a choice between Americanism & socialism and so it is. Obama in the last week on the campaign push at least said something honest he said this election is about who we want to be.
Where Do We Go From Here...
As a nation, that is. It comes to no surprise to me that the dems took the House. Lame-quack Speaker, Paul Ryan, really blew it. Now we can totally forget the "Wall". Not that I ever believe that it'd've gotten done anyway. The same can be said about repealing Obamacare. We were lucky to've gotten rid of the individual mandate as that bill had been added into the pile which passed the tax reform bill.
So, now what? Will the new Democrat House loudly seek to impeach Trump? Hmmm...I dunno. Their gains in the HoR was not that "blue wave" the media had literally cried out for. The nation will be wacthing to see if the Maxine Waters-democrats will continue going batshit-nuts! Does it mean the "immigration reform" that the likes of Nancy Pelosi's been "Dreaming" of? Maybe. Does it mean MORE spending? DEFINITELY! Not that it had ever even slowed down in the first place.
FLORIDA: Desantis won - thanks totally to DT. Personally, the choice should've been Putnam. He was the favorite here. He beat Gillum by just 1%. Bill Nelson refuses to concede to Rick Scott (Big "surprise", huh). All in all a pretty good night for the Sunshine State; and Texas as well as Francis "don beeto" O'rourke losr w/ a nice margin.
As for the Senate - Thanks to Mitch McConnell holding his ground w/ getting the nation over the finish line by appointing Bret Kavanaugh to the SCOTUS! Make no mistake, that DID save the GOP there! And although we gained more seats, I have the feeling that Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe may be showing more of their progressive colors by leaning more w/ the new demcrat Speaker (Pelosi?). Why, you ask? The governor's seat in the state of ME went blue.
It seems that the nation is calling for "bipartisenship" in DC. And that has ALWAYS meant a more liberal / progressive federal government. Imo, the status quo has been saved. Not that it had ever gone away.
Well here we are...............more senate seats and Nancy Pelosi in charge again in the house. Pollitic Argh is right, Luis.
Yup . . .again. But w/ a twist. DT's at the helm. And, unlike any of the other GOP prez's within the last 40 yrs, DT is not cowering! The GOP OWEs him big time!
Ut was reported that the HoR has around 100 bills ha have already been passed - waiting for the results of the midterms. Well, we made some senate gains. So...those bills can NOW be sent to the Senate and then to the WH before January 20th. This Congress CAN get alot of things done by then - including the next round of tax cuts and finishing off the ACA and making cuts in subsidies, etc. The question is will they?
Psssst...Personally, doubt it. Shhhhh!. ,
Hi Norma, Congrats go to Ohio for not electing Cordray. I am trying to be more positive thinking about the U.S. House win for the Dems. Time will inform us if those Dems change their tune/tone. If they do not it will be a plus for POTUS in 2020. We have a backstop in the Senate.
Luis, You once again made a good post.
> DT slaps the snot out of CNN and NBC news!
> Jeff Sessions anounced his "resignation". Translation: He wasd FIRED! q;-D
