@REX I am not by nature or experience an optimist about life on earth, or justice or the use of power.
But the Left is clearly in decline, They peaked in November, 2016.
Their stranglehold on state power in most areas of the country began to collapse in 2010.
Their power is still deep and strong. But the decline has begun - and it cannot be stopped.
The Left has no appeal to sane, decent people and even the young leftists will start to chafe under its hatred and rage.
There's a breathless hush in the Close to-night
Ten to make and the match to win
A bumping pitch and a blinding light,
An hour to play and the last man in.
And it's not for the sake of a ribboned coat,
Or the selfish hope of a season's fame,
But his Captain's hand on his shoulder smote --
'Play up! play up! and play the game!'
Their absolute power and privilege has been based on political power and legal power that have accumulated slowly but very surely for 85 years. Add secrecy and mutual protection - and that is their foundation.
Their political power is in rapid decline. Their legal power is under constant siege by legions of new, comparatively young judges. Their veil of secrecy has been torn off permanently.
Their protection of each other will fall away because they are craven, privileged cowards.
I don't know what will replace the Left as the dominant ideology of the West.
Conservative populism is the phrase for what seems to be next. Maybe not.
But the Left is broken. They rely on raw power, hatred, slander, lawsuits, manipulation and the opposition to freedom in any form to maintain power.
These are all the hallmarks of a despised and decadent self-styled ruling class who are mocked by the people they supposedly represent.
"I’m seeing a lot of talk from people that are supposed to be on our side telling GOP voters not to go out & vote for @KLoeffler and @PerdueSenate.
That is NONSENSE.
IGNORE those people.
We need ALL of our people coming out to vote for Kelly & David."
Let's go GA patriots!!! I am pissed as hell at some specific Republicans. But no way in hell am I sitting home during the run-off in January for our two crucial Senate seats. No way am I abandoning this nation and state. Will be there in person on election day, and volunteering to monitor. Oh yea, @timr @watch4thedrop @Jaime... under a freaking electron microscope.
This thread goes with what @Debradelai said in the quod meet last night. The entire federal bureaucracy is compromised and corrupted. That's why Trump cuts them out and has his people bypass them.
Pompeo at the Department of State and Chris Miller at the Department of Defense have to do the heavy lifting.
And now, even "blue" Tarrant County was never really "blue"...?
I study the psychology of relationships.Believing voter fraud has been rampant for years. If the e voting machines have been used over the past 10 years then hat explains a whole lot of things. I have been so angry for years at our two party system. Now it would appear there is no one watching the watchers. We put our faith and trust in DJT and I intend to be in it for the long haul.
At this point all nevertrumpers should go Dem. After all, they accept dead people.
@timr yup, it’s how we got Baker. We are quite thirsty for anything resembling a conservative.
Trump doesn't have to continue this fight.
He could go off and retire peacefully in the life of a billionaire, recoup his losses, and die a happy man.
But he DOESN'T. Why? Because HE is fighting for US.
People like you who whine and doubt, are not worth his or Our time.
Ask not what trump can do for you, but what YOU can do for HIM, and your country.
I think this is a great point. And like Quisling, they were left behind by their new maters
Soldiers need to be able to maintain their own morale.
I wouldn't want to be in a foxhole with one who couldn't.
More GOP Senate victory numbers.
GOP incumbent Hyde-Smith defeated Dem Espy ran in the 2018 special election.
Hyde-Smith had been named to replace Thad Cochran, who resigned for health reasons.
They ran this year in a rematch
Mississippi Senate Results:
Cindy Hyde-Smith 54.2
Mike Espy 44.1
Hyde-Smith won by a 10.1 point margin
I loath this state of Ma.
My small town voted for Trump over Biden and that is encouraging but so many friends and family members and co workers have their heads up their asses!!!
And the young adults are effing clueless!!
I'd like to move to a red state instead of a pure dark blue state full of uninformed fools!!
What would our founding fathers think here in Massachusetts?!! They would be running around Harvard Yard slapping the crap out of people!!
Born and grew up in the New York City area.
Family on both sides are New Yorkers,
Now a Conservative Trump Voter in Massachusetts
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
