A few takeaways form last night. We did not have a "Red Wave" We barely managed to hang on to what we have Trump needs to retire. The defacto leader of the conservative movement is DeSantis Abortion and late term baby killing is more important to 50% of Americans than crime, inflation and energy independence. Republicans need to field candidates with competence and governance. Either we get rid of mail in voting or republicans learn to cheat like the democrats. We must expand our influence among Hispanic voters. With their family values they are extremely important. I am thankful if we can demote Pelosi. I'd rather have a 5 seat majority than none at all. I do wonder where Newt Gingrich's 40-60 seat tsunami went.
America was established as a representative Republic. However, it has been allowed to govern as a democracy, which is little more than mob rule.
“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.”
We are now entering the bondage stage.
I’ve moved on to DeSantis also although I do believe its too late. America is finished.
The fraud was obvious in many instances. I want to see Lindell’s documentation that his experts put together yesterday.
The Anti-Trump spin is designed to beat what’s coming down the road the Jewel In Trump’s Crown Kari Lake will win the Arizona contest once the constipated vote count is released by Friday I guess.
And yes I see Blake Masters and Adam Laxalt winning Senate seats once this shakes out a GOP majority of 51 then the Georgia runoff war to see if it’s 52.
It was a “Red Mist”, not a Red Wave.
DeSantis can’t win. He was successful in Florida because he has a strong Republican legislature that allowed him to accomplish a lot.
I love DeSantis. I love Trump.
All this belief that DeSantis would be a conquering hero throughout the nation just because he did a great job in Florida is extremely premature.
That’s not a negative on him it’s just a word of caution.
I’m not predicting that we will take the senate but if we take both the senate and the house those will be major victories.
What we didn’t get was all the pie in the sky red tsunami which I certainly hoped for.
You are an idiot. The STEAL was huge last night. Had nothing to do with Trump
I hear what you are saying. I believe we are set up for Divine judgement due to our moral collapse. I just want to remain salt and light for as long as I can. I was hoping in vain that America would come to her moral senses last night. Apparently it may be too late. Even so come Lord Jesus!
The quality of the candidates put forth left a LOT to be desired. I held my nose and voted for several that I really despised just to keep from electing a socialist dem.
Gotta ask. Is that based on analysis or wishful/hopeful thinking.
If analysis, I’d like to hear. Not doubting, just curious.
Good grief. Enough with the "Muh stolen elections!" Nonsense.
Trump saddled us with lousy hand-picked candidates and then he didn't give them any money.
America told Trump, "Go away."
It looks like MAGA Populism just isn't very popular. It worked in 2016 against a horribly unpopular Democrat but since then, it's failed. Trumpism lost in 2018, 2020, and yesterday.
Shall we go four for four in '24, lose again, and continue to blame election fraud? Get a grip.
I think last night was an eye-opener. We are over Trump. We also have serious election problems, no integrity with mail-in voting that spans weeks. Time for a national election holiday and everyone vote on a single day and limit absentee ballots to the military and people who ‘are in the hospital’ or otherwise truly cannot get to the polls. Yes, we should have voter ID, but I know that commonsense idea is still a hard sell even though these same people need ID to go on a plane, to do business at a bank, to go to a federal building... We have work to do, but need to do it without Trump.
We can say “the steal” until we’re all blue in the face. We need hard evidence and an ability to showcase it to the public in an undeniable fashion.
Trump endorsed and promoted both OZ and Walker. Both turned out to be less than optimal.
I’d say, “Red Tide.” But maybe that’s a Florida thing. The Establishment won this one, as they expected.
It’s stupid to pretend that these “elections” are valid.
This is very important but no one is talking about the 90% media being all-in for the DIMS. When you have brain dead people watching the boob-tube 24x7 and being hammered with "Republicans are Evil" ads you are going to have an uphill battle.
