A choice between a Theocratic, unconstitutional bigot or a lapdog crooked crony who slimed his way into the position...

No matter who wins, the people of Alabama and the U.S. lose.


Amen, baby. Amen! Doug Jones for U.S. Senate! That's the ticket!



I hope his platform doesn't include the support of Antifa and the socialists desire to destroy the founding principles of the United States of America....

If so.. good luck... ALABAMA don't play that

Everything in your post is true. Every word. It's just that it's nothing to be proud of. Nothing to be celebrating.
Whatsoever. He's still not in. There is an election, you know, which remains.

I think Jones will lose to Moore. However, I think it will be closer than it's been in a long, long while.

Contrary to public opinion, 2018 will be an absolute madhouse. The fringe states like CA, NY, MA et al will still go Democratic/liberal, but the others will continue with the red shift of 2016. The real story will be the Republican changes... just like this one, incumbents will have their feet held to the fire.

The DNC believes they can ride this wave to victory, but the truth is they are all seen as more establishment than almost any Republican. It will be the outsiders, the people who don't have a political record, but who instead are mavericks and as tired of the DC status quo as the people are, who will be the big winners. I suspect that even some of the established Democrats will be fighting for their political lives in primaries... Nancy Pelosi, for example, just tried to hold a town hall meeting with her constituents and was shouted down by cries of "LIAR!" I would not be surprised if a different Democrat takes her seat from her next year.

I hear Bob Corker form Tennessee is retiring. Knowing how dirty most Tennessee politics is, I imagine he figured out his time is over and wants to get out while the getting is good. More will follow. We're looking at a completely new political climate, and the old ways won't be tolerated any more.

The ironic thing is that the DNC seems to be oblivious to the fact that every thing they have done since January has only solidified their uselessness in the minds of average people. Their actions were meant to show Trump and his movement as a failure that they have the ability to correct, but they are showing that they are worse than the ones who are failing us now.

Even Doug Jones doesn't think Doug Jones can win. This election was held today; December is just a formality.

It's not just the government funds (Trump just gave Huntsville a windfall with his NASA and DoD initiatives), but the fact that Huntsville is becoming the most diverse city in the whole area. The foreign national population is pretty large, and the whole town is nowhere near as conservative as the rest of the state.

I hate to see that change...

Shhhh, I think the Democrats should pour millions into this election . It's so close for them to win. Just another million more should turn the tide. Will make Moore's victory that much sweeter.

Did anybody already mention that Moore is like a christian Taliban?
Because that is relevant to everything, I think.

Usually I do not care about local politics, but in this case, where Trump supported the MODERATE candidate, I thought that there is more to this than simple "lets have a guy who is not part of establishment" - because here you get a candidate who is not part of the establishment, because he is soooo far out of the spectrum that he isn't even on some kind of ultraviolet/infrared wavelenght, but in gamma-ray-area...

And you should think about what you root for. What this person really stands for.

Moore will be great for you if you're White, Male, Protestant, and Straight. If you're not one of the above, your mileage may vary.

The man was removed from the judiciary TWICE. How long until he's removed from the Legislature?

Strange was a bad choice as well, since his appointment was politically expedient for a governor who was headed out the door for corruption.

I want to see "The Swamp" drained just as much as anybody, but electing Moore is about as effective as using a .50cal to swat a fly.

Alabama will once again be a laughing stock when Moore hoists himself by his own petard.

I mean, there is currently a probe into his charitable foundation for campaign violations. How many chances do you give someone before realizing they're unfit to be given the public trust?

Looking at Moore's beliefs... good grief, that man was on the judiciary? He appears to be a demented whackdoodle of the highest order.

the guys victory ?????Sermon????

been reading quite a few thread titles here on ats where all these people are so offended by some football players taking the knee claiming that they are disrespecting the national anthem.. they don't want to be confronted with politics while watching their football game.

well, listen to this video, it's more appropriate for a sunday church service!!!
and, if the election debates end up turning into church sermons.... I have a feeling that there are many, many republican voters who will also say....
We don't want to hear religious sermons that immersed into our politics!!!

good luck guys with your candidate.

I think it's common knowledge.

Actually, I think he's right in the spectrum, if one is looking at the opinions and feelings of the average person instead of the opinions and feelings of groups like antifa, government bureaucrats, political pundits, white supremacists (the actual ones), radical left-wing protesters, the MSM, etc. These groups may get all the airtime, but they're far from the majority. Most of us just want to live our lives without some big government trying to tell us what to do, when to do it, how much it's going to cost, and how evil we are if we disagree. Most of us don't want Big Brother watching over us like some kind of perverted, retarded parental figure. Most of us want to go to the church of our choosing (or not go), hear what we choose to hear, and make up our own minds. Most of us want those groups I mentioned above to just go... the... Hades... AWAY!

So, since putting a moderate anti-establishment figure in the Presidency has only created more of the insanity, not less, it's time to send in heavier forces... like a hanging judge from deepest, darkest Alabama. Keep up the stuff the people don't want, and it'll get worse. We actually have a few white supremacists down here, and as much as we typically try to ignore them into oblivion, I can see us sending a few of them to DC if that's what it takes.

We want our country back. Whatever it takes.

We're taking our country back. Whatever it takes.

And put back in the judiciary by the people of Alabama the first time, and now put into the Senate by the people the second time.

I think it's pretty clear to most people that a 'probe into' anything is pretty much just an indication that that person or organization is either against the status quo (Trump, Gingrich) or so obviously guilty something couldn't get swept under the rug any other way (Clinton, Lynch, Comey).

And, not to be argumentatve, I thoroughly disagree. A LOT of people like me only voted for Trump as a vote against HRC. My disgust with the GOP is beyond measurement. If I can't vote against a Republican incumbent, I won't be voting at all.

Fair enough; I know a lot of people felt that way. But really, we are in some form of agreement. As I said, this isn't and never was about the man named Donald J. Trump; it was about putting somebody in power to break the web of corruption that covers Washington DC. I just think Trump has a chance of doing that... your mileage may vary. It appears we both agree that Hillary (or any of the regular swamp denizens) was never going to damage her own private corruption scandals.

Same thing with Moore. I don't agree with everything he stands for, but he is about as incorruptible as anyone I can think of, and a master at ticking off other politicians. That's his appeal to me.

And the people of Alabama have had to have their collective hands slapped how many times now?

As a lifelong Alabamian, I agree that Alabama deserves Moore, not because he's the right man for the job, but because Alabamians think they know what they want in politics, and deserve to get it good and hard.

The man should be prosecuted for perjury and removed from office as soon as his takes his oath, since he's proven TWICE before that it's nothing but empty words to him.

As far as the allegations of campaign funds impropriety goes, I fully expect that investigation to go nowhere, since apparently once you make it high enough in politics, they all circle the wagons and protect their own.

We need a reset button for our entire leadership in this country.

I'm not sure you fully understand the implications of that statement.

The first three words of the US Constitution: "We the People." Not "We, the government" or "We, the leaders." We the People hold the reigns of power in this country. If the government wants to 'slap our hands' the government needs to be put down permanently. We slap the government's hands, not the other way around.

Your statement implies you desire a King... one with unlimited power to keep you in check. I do not.


We need a reset button for our entire leadership in this country.

I fail to see how calling for more of the same is conducive to such a "reset."
