Despite being on the exact opposite of the political spectrum. I like how May hasn't caved in to these remainer fanatics.

What she did Home Secretary was horrible, I'm sure what she'll do in the future will be equally disastrous, but applause where applause is deserved.

I think she is a horrible ruthless bitch.


But we need a horrible ruthless bitch to go toe to toe with mad Merkal.

I despise thatcher but I admire her handling of the falklands.

Actually we elect a parliament and the leader of the party that has the majority of seats in the house forms a government, but it would have been more accurate if I had said we have a prime minster with no mandate to govern.

But we did elect a parliment. And they can choose to change the leader during there mandate.

May is not the first. Even recently we had Brown.

That is true and I never suggested otherwise. Theresa May was not elected to the position of party leader by a vote, she was returned by default when all other candidates withdrew. As you rightly point out this is lawful and not particularly unusual, but me referring to May as being "unelected" was not incorrect as you claimed.

Since people were BSed into believing Hillary would win, they voted more for Republicans in the Senate and house so they could make sure they could block her actions if she did something wrong.

Surprise, Trump won. Hopefully the Republicans won't screw up and let him get out of line. I think they will learn to not let him try everything he wants to try too quickly, He may get a little overzealous and needs to be dampened down a bit.

Don't underestimate the republicans.
They have a history of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Hopefully trump will keep them on track.

Obama has been a disaster for the democrat party and for the country the best that we can hope for is that the democrats will remain blind to just how much of a disaster he was and they continue to stay the course and alienate even more voters and lose even more local, state and national elections.

It isn't that the authoritarian leftists message is wrong. . . .

It's because we're all too ####ing stupid to realize how great it is.

I remember when a northern pike was trying to wrap it's jaws around the toes of a girl with painted toenails, it could have fit her whole foot in it's mouth. I kept having to hold on to the girl while she pulled up her feet out of the water as she squealed at the fish. So she now must be a Republican because she has a history of snatching defeat from the jaws

Essentially, Democrats have been in trouble since the 1930s.

Unless the Republicans absolutely blow it (which is possible, they aren't called the Stupid Party by the Republican rank-and-file for nothing), the situation is going to get a lot worse for the Dems before it gets better. Go look at the Senate map for the 2018 election. Of the 33 seats up for re-election, the Democrats are defending 25 of them. You think that's bad? 10 of those seats are in states that Trump won. By contrast, only 1 of the 8 GOP seats is in a state Hillary won. The bottom line: barring disaster, the GOP should come out of the 2018 midterm with a net gain of several seats in the Senate, possibly even enough to claim a filibuster-proof super-majority. No wonder they're in panic/meltdown mode right now.

Absolutely true. Just ask the Democrats, they'll tell you the truth of it. Every election cycle, we learn how horrified they are that certain segments of America just keep voting against their own self-interests...because the Dems know what's best for you, you know?

Don't write them off just yet.

They will give themselves a shot of penicillin and start screwing people over again soon enough.

These things go in cycles. Things may change again during mid-term elections, depending on how horrible Trump and his cabinet are.


I agree that it is in cycles... but over the span of decades, not 2 or 3 years. Believing this will flip by mid-term elections is just wishful thinking.

The left has had their time in the spotlight, not just in the White House, but in the media and education institutions for decades and 2016 has been a complete rebuttal of this system.

Right now the Democrats reputation is so damaged and their most prominent figures so scandalized, it's going to be interesting to see the how the party is reformed over the next 4-8 years. If they don't adopt classical liberalism again and continue to be taken over by socialists and SJW's, I think they are going to be in for a really hard time.

Don't you have some Canadian politics to focus on? Or did they decide poutine is the national dish already? Or was it craft dinner?

Canadian politics are to much for me to keep up with.

“It’s a very easy thing for Republicans to say, “Well, they’re bussing people in.” Well, you know what? We’ve been bussing people in to deal with you f#@king assholes for fifty years and we’re not going to stop now, we’re just going to find a different way to do it."

“When I do this I think as an investigator first – I used to do the investigations. I think backwards from how they would prosecute, if they could, and then try to build out the method to avoid that.”


Dodgy Clinton = dodgy democrats
