yesterday's election

Postby Peter Kropotkin » Wed Nov 08, 2017 7:20 pm

yesterday election result was quite fascinating....
the Dem's pick up governor seat in New Jersey and Virginia and
pretty much swept the board in local state elections in several
states....it was a disaster for the GOP and IQ45.....

of interest was the fact that the typical racist ads of the GOP
candidates failed...for example, in Virginia, the GOP candidate
tried several outright racist ads against the Dem candidate
and the Dem blew the GOP candidate out of the water.....

now of bigger interest is the next election in 2018....
is this an harbinger of things to come or a blip on the radar?

One thing to come out of this election is the fact even republicans
say this was a referendum on IQ45....and if so, this does not bode
well for the GOP in 2018.....

also of interest was the participation of both Obama and Biden
in helping the Dem candidates in a couple of states....
one of the complaints against both during their 8 years was
their neglect of local politics.... they now have seem to found religion
in this matter....and it is a very good thing....

and IQ45 lost bigly yesterday... yep, the rejection of his
racist, sexist, anti-alien politics did win and it won big...
maybe this is the winning he was talking about when he
said America would win so much we would become bored of winning....

I can only hope.....

Virginia means noting. The Dem was ahead in that race for almost the entire time, in double digits for most of it. It *seemed* to tighten up in the end, as virtually all elections do, but in the end it was nothing more than "Predicted winner wins", and in a Democratic state to boot.

The DNC gains in Georgia Senate seats on the other hand, might be more telling.

Obviously the Dems are trying to shift attention from the fact that they are all, at the very best, rapists, and usually mass-murdering pedophiles.

They'll be able to keep ruining the country until there is little left to destroy.
Beyond that, real beings will begin to mop up and rebuild our world.

Shame on all you Democrat voters. Deep, bitter shame.

K: please prove this.... I am a democrat and I have never raped or murder or had sex
with anyone under 18... so your statement is wrong... and millions of democrats
have never raped or murder or had sex with anyone under 18... so you are again wrong....
and I wonder what else you are wrong about?

FC: They'll be able to keep ruining the country until there is little left to destroy.

K: well, we know you are wrong about democrats in general and you are wrong
about this... in fact, proven fact is, the country runs better when democrats run
the country.....let us see, the Clinton years were very good years in America as
America increased the number of jobs by over 20 million... that is just one example,
the stock market went up, confidence was high by Americans...

the bush years... were a disaster... bush Jr. in 8 years only gained 800,000 jobs,
the lowest job rate since Herbert hoover, bush lied and people died, the Iraq,
Afghanistan wars and war on terror were all total failures... costing trillions of dollars
and over 100,000 Iraqis lives and over 4000 American lives
and let not forget the worst collapse of the American economy since the great
depression occurred during bush's last year, under his leadership and with his
budget... sounds like failure to me....

Obama, let us see, saved the American car industry, created millions of new jobs,
the stock market when up, got people health insurance, the country ran pretty
well...

and we get to IQ45...he was on Obama's budget until Oct 31, after that
it is IQ45 budget and he hasn't passed a budget yet....still no successes of any kind...
hasn't passed a single piece of legislation that means anything, nothing, no victories
of any kind for IQ45, WHERE IS ALL THAT WINNING I WAS PROMISED.......
hasn't happened....

so, two democrats and we see a very successful running of the country
two GOP, and one complete failure to the point of GWB being in the running
for the worst president in American history... and we have IQ45 who
has single handedly given new meaning to presidential ineptness and incompetence and
failure....

so your statement simply aren't true.. and what else is new?
you lie, simple as that, as you are a conservative, that must
mean all conservatives are liars.....it is an easy game to play..
but as usual, you make sweeping statements with absolutely no
evidence or proof...it makes me wonder what else you are hiding beside
being a liar? I wonder, maybe you are a rapist, mass murdering pedophile....
inquiring minds want to know, are you a raping, mass murdering, pedophile?
