An (Attempted) Objective Assessment of The 2018 Election

Well, that was fun. Regardless of the outcome, I, like probably 99% of Americans, am glad it is over. Context first:

In the Senate the GOP had a clear advantage with 26 of 35 races being Democrat seats and many of them being in GOP-friendly states. In the House the GOP faced an uphill battle with close to 50 retirements and historical trends pointing to the party in power typically losing 30 seats or more, and up to 63 (Obama). The Dems needed 23 to flip the House. The story was similar among state governors where the GOP had a number retiring or term-limited and started with an all-time record 33 governors.

The good: the GOP is poised to gain a net three Senate seats pending the outcomes of Florida and Arizona and the Mississippi run-off, the latter a near-lock as the state had two Republicans run, diluting the vote. This would take them to 54 with pick-ups in ND, Indiana, Missouri and Florida and one narrow loss in Nevada. They also appear to have lost Montana, unfortunately, by a few thousand votes. The Senate controls the judiciary and a large part of legislation, so expanding their number is huge to Trump and the GOP, especially with the electoral map being less Senate-friendly to them in 2020.

The not very good: the GOP lost control of the House as expected, but so far the losses are a net 26 (29 lost, 3 gained) so not as bad as many feared or projected. Furthermore, over half of these came from a mere six states: NY, NJ, VA, PA, IA and IL. A few more losses are expected perhaps bringing the number of total seats lost to around 30 or a little higher. This was not the “Blue Wave” that the Democrats and far-left media had been trumpeting. Dare I say, if the GOP had a more normal retirement number of 20-25, they likely would have held the House? On the governor’s side, the GOP appears to have lost seven states while gaining one, while the Dems picked up 7. Again, about as expected. Not great but given the all-time high of 33 states held, the GOP really had no place to go but down.

With this, I would say both sides largely held serve, and call it a minor loss for the GOP. Winning a couple more Senate seats and holding a few more governors or keeping the House would have been a huge win for the GOP and Trump, and they were not that far off. This was not a resounding Dem victory: do not listen to the corrupt media propaganda calling it such. But it was also not a victory for Trump, despite the way he is positioning it.

Reasons To Vote Democrat

  1. You want to pay higher taxes.
  2. You want the federal government making your medical decisions for you and denying you treatment.
  3. You prefer socialism over freedom and liberty.
  4. You hate low unemployment, record economic growth, record high stock markets, less regulation, law and order, a secure border, our enemies fearing and respecting us, and peace.

Everything Is Trump’s Fault

Here is the current narrative from the intellectually and morally bankrupt Left-wing media. The attention-seeking “MAGABomber” who sent devices either intentionally or unintentionally made so poorly they would not hurt a fly is Trump’s fault because he is obviously a right-wing nut who was motivated by Trump’s hateful rhetoric. The Jew-hating AND Trump-hating synagogue killer is also Trump’s fault because he moved the embassy, is pro-Israel and hates immigrants, causing this guy to become enraged and murder a bunch of innocent Jews, or something.

All you need to know is that EVERYTHING is the fault of Trump (and the GOP). Even hurricanes, tornadoes and heavy rains. Who knew Trump had such God-like power??

Only complete idiots and leftist, tantrum-throwing emotionalists believe this crap.

CNN Goes Full Racist

Here it is folks. Leftists are racist, even black leftists, racist against other blacks. I have been saying it all along, leftists hate the downtrodden, uneducated, racial minorities and especially those in their identity groups who DARE to stray from their plantation. Usually they keep their hatred for their constituents hidden, but some times they just cannot help themselves. If you or I used such language at a public company, we would have been fired yesterday. Apparently CNN is one place where you can call someone a “dumb negro” and get away with it. I am waiting for one of their racist clowns to use the “N” word. Then we will see the sparks fly.

 

This is ACTUAL racism on display, not the “we need safe spaces” or lies about cops shooting young black men by the hundreds or anti-affirmative action or building a wall to keep the country safe, not to keep out brown people kind that they left likes to exploit.
