  1. Both my grandfather and my father are voting a straight Democratic ticket. They never would have done that when they were alive.

    1. The symptoms of religious dementia are heavy in your head. The only way to vote Democrat is to be dead? Seriously? Quick, get back on your meds because you’ re not going to survive the coming Trump War that started in full swing Wednesday with the firing of Sessions.

      1. Whoever said “liberals never laugh” was right. It was a joke, son, a joke. Get it?

        (Oh, now I remember who said, “liberals never laugh,” it was me.)

  2. Ugh…. I wish people would STFU about going to vote. Getting the idiots motivated to go to go vote is what got us into the mess we’re in.

    If you pick your candidate the same way you pick reality TV stars to support, for the love of all that is holy keep your butt at home.

  3. Obama was the first non white American President. Trump was the second. What do you mean he’s white! He wouldn’t paint his face orange would he? πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ˜œπŸ˜±πŸ˜πŸ‘€πŸ˜…πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜³

  4. There was an old man called Trump,
    Whose now feeling down in the dump(s),
    He slipped on the grass,
    Landed flat on his ass,
    Now the House is reduced to a rump.
    (for Republicans).

    There was once a vote in Congress,
    Oh dear, its a bit of a mess,
    He lost the House of Representatives,
    As a future preventative
    There is a lot now, he has to address.

    There was once a very old man,
    Who fought as hard as he can,
    He lost the vote of the ladies,
    But shored up the vote of the crazies.
    After all, he the Chief of his Klan.

  5. The vote he said was cynch,
    He said without even a flinch,
    Now he’s lost control of the House,
    Is he a man or a mouse?
    Is there another downtrodden group he can lynch?

    This election was such a darn pain,
    Points the finger at the sons of Spain,
    The sons of Africa as well,
    He says can all burn in hell,
    He’ll re-introduce one man one vote once again. (like 1918).

  6. The “Blue wave” was of course, like everything else the mainstream media peddles, fake news. Nothing out of the ordinary for a first-term-mid-term election happened. In fact it went pretty well – Clinton and Obama each lost over 50 seats in the House. The GOP grip on the Senate is now stronger than before – the RINOs (McCain, Corker, Flake) are gone and the squishy Senators (Murkowski and Collins) are now powerless. It remains to be seen if Senator-elect Romney will be squishy or not.

    Lessons learned: Party discipline matters. When your own aren’t politically reliable, stuff duzzint get done. Yes, The Donald has been an amazing performer, aside from the tax cuts, he practically turned the economy around single-handed with executive orders rescinding the regulatory handcuffs Obama had locked it into. America is once again #1 – the world’s most competitive economy, with record growth, record unemployment, record wage increases, and finally, favorable trade deals. But Clinton’s adage, “it’s the economy, stupid” no longer applies. Now, it’s everything else as well.

    The ‘leadership’ of Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McConnell was dismal. Yes, the Senate did approve a handful of good lower court judges, and 2 great Supreme Court Justices, but not much else. For a whole decade, the GOP failed to address healthcare with a workable alternative to the infamous ACA. For 2 years, the GOP failed to enact immigration reform, pass an infrastructure bill, fix healthcare, enact nationwide CCW reciprocity, fix K-12 education, fix healthcare, audit the Federal Reserve, and fix healthcare.
    Did I mention fix healthcare? Congress not only failed the President and the country, it handed the Democrats issue after issue on a silver platter.

    The winning party in any election has to do 2 things – first, keep its promises, and second, also make a good-faith effort to keep the promises of its opponents. The worst thing it can do is leave issues unsolved or even unaddressed, lest they come back to bite you as they did this time around.

    We will now see history repeat itself. Democrats traditionally misgovern, Republicans traditionally won’t govern. We have achieved a possibly desirable level of legislative gridlock. A few quotes come to mind:

    “The best argument against democracy is a 5 minute conversation with the average voter.” – Sir Winston Churchill

    “Democracy is the pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.” – H. L. Mencken

    “That government is best which governs least.” – Henry David Thoreau
