    Missouri is one of the Senate seats the Republicans got, McCaskill has been in the Senate for 12 years, and if you would of seen some of her commercials here you would of thought she was a conservative, but the people weren't fooled.

    Josh Hawley GOP 1,245,732 51.5%
    Claire McCaskill* Dem 1,101,377 45.5%

    How bad is the state of the democratic party in Connecticut? Scumbag elite Dannel Malloy has left the state a cratering hole of graft and debt.

    https://www.courant.com/politics/cap...027-story.html

    Polls have shown that Malloy has ranked as the nation’s least popular governor after unpopular Republican governors in New Jersey and Kansas left office. Malloy is also among the least liked governors in modern Connecticut history — ranking lower than Gov. John G. Rowland’s approval rating of 24 percent in a Quinnipiac poll in 2004 after admitting that he lied about home improvements at his cottage in Litchfield County.




    Lamont barely prevails, but with a hopelessly broke state government, look for the pain and entertainment value to increase.

    Here in NY I was hoping it would be like when people got sick of Mario Cuomo and elected a Republican - Pataki for governor. This time kicking out his son Andrew for Marc Molinaro, but no luck, not even close. Cuomo gets a third term and the Dems even gained control of the state senate. Complete blue wave here and all the rural counties that went Red as usual, votes don't count. Mass immigration over the last 50 years has ended the Republican party for good here.

    If I did not live here I would say good, let these SOB's that vote for this suffer the punishment of their vote under the weight of higher taxes.

    Almost. He often has quoted his friend Larry McDonald. He told him he was thinking of running for congress and asked him which party he should run under. Rep. McDonald told him to run under whichever party he thought he could win with. McDonald was a democrat.

    Well, I was very wrong. I thought GOP would run the table. Not wishful thinking either.
    I am glad to see some anti-Israelis in the house, like Keith Ellison, Ocasio-Cortez, and the Somali from MN.

    However, the only thing that saddened me was to see Dana Rohrabacher lost his seat. With Trump's Israel first policies, I doubt Dana will find a position in the administration. Even if he did, I doubt it would be related to foreign policy.

    My big fear was GOP would sweep big, and then use it as a mandate to go to war with Iran.

    Today, politics feels normal again, since Trump started running.
    Which means boring.

    I was glad to see Florida overwhelmingly vote to give felons the right to vote, and Michigan legalize weed.

    Thanks. Yeah that was more my recollection. Ron even said that he thought the most powerful political faction, if it could ever unite, would be the libertarian right and the civil liberties left, at least from a grassroots activism perspective. I know Ron never said that people have to run as GOP, though I'm sure there are some GOP types that would like people to think that.

    And the ones that are fleeing NY because of it are bringing that same high tax and spend mentality down here to the south and voting for all of the same policies! In the biggest city in NC, our entire county board is now D and city council is like 7D 2R. And the new residents can't vote fast enough for every damn bond referendum that gets stuck on the ballot. Another $200 million in debt approved yesterday that will be spent on Agenda 21 /2030 projects. Then they'll complain about taxes going up.

    You keep talking past each other..

    Ron Paul never told anybody to do anything in his life.

    He said if you want to win, then realistically you probably need to run as a Republican. That's pretty much what they said the first time.

    If only we could agree, and get the word out we agree, that the Tenth Amendment guarantees states and municipalities the right to all the socialism they can stomach, and if socialists could give up their desire to rob the rural poor and give to the urban rich, the two groups could work very closely to pack Washington with honest libertarians.

    And Washington knows this. It's no mystery why they're working so very hard at stirring up partisan hatred and silencing nonpartisan conversation.

    Commiefornia had quite a few Propositions this election. Most of them had to do with taxes and bonds (debt), a couple about more regulation.

    All of the bond issues (except a water bond, California don’t need no stinking water!) and the pro-tax side won on those propositions. Tax and redistribute from the rich! A gasoline tax will really hurt those billionaires!

    Interestingly, a couple of the regulatory props failed. There was a rent control prop that failed. And an attempt to regulate kidney dialysis failed. I would attribute that directly to heavy advertisement spending. More regulation on ambulance companies passed, because it gave drivers breaks that could not be interrupted by silly emergency calls.

    And lastly, an “animal rights” proposition about animals in cages passed. This was ironic, as it was opposed by PETA and other animal rights groups. It was a stealth crony farm prop that locked in rules that fit in with existing practices by the big corp farmers. It will just hurt small farmers, as usual. One person I know voted for it, and when told what it does, she was shocked and said “why didn’t anyone tell me!!!” Another voter who just reads the title and knows nothing. Typical. Ignorance of the common voter is the Achilles heal of any voting process.

    Maybe it's best to just the let the rot accelerate and cleanse the land in the long run. These people will never listen to any of the dire warnings as long as their fantastical lifestyle is being subsidized. A part of me thinks we should be helping them to bring this entire charade to an inflection point of critical mass, since it's easier to destroy this unnatural monstrosity as opposed to rolling it back legislatively.

    Human beings, especially those living crammed together in concrete communes is a grotesque perversion of humanity. Jefferson was right about the nightmare of urban corruption spreading it's tentacles across the land.

    Yeah I must admit I was doing a bit of bitter paraphrasing there. What he actually said was we should take over the GOP. It should be pretty obvious that the easiest way to win an election is to run as one of the 2 major parties.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Did Trump change his position on Obamacare (again? He was for single payer before he ran, then was going to repeal Obamacare, then "repeal and replace" it ("who knew healthcare could be so complicated?" he once complained). During one of his final campaign stops, he warned that the Democrats, if elected, would "obliterate" Obamacare.
