Aside from the conveniently timed accusations, Democrats raised and spent almost 10 times more money on the race than Moore. $4 million of this came from a secret SuperPac in Washington.

Oh NO! The Democrats fund raised! So dirty! It's not fair that the Democrats took advantage of a judicial ruling that conservatives pushed to be implemented under Obama! Only Republicans can use Super PACs! Am I doing it right?

Jeff sessions appears before Congress, and then it's like he's drained of energy for the next 3 months. You hardly hear from him.

It all comes back to todays politicians. Nobody likes them. They have no moral character...no charisma. No leadership qualities.

The Republicans could have won Alabama last night with a BETTER candidate. One that wasn't creepy. It's that simple.

The Democrats could have won the presidency this past election with a BETTER candidate.

That's all it comes down to.

Here...a non-biased account from NBC

www.nbcnews.com...



But white women who typically support Republican candidates were a key factor in the outcome. Some crossed party lines to vote for Jones and many others simply declined to go to the polls.


The GOP based did NOT like this guy. Women did not like him. That is why Trumps numbers were no matched. Why is that so hard to understand? Like I said earlier he was not who I would have voted for.

Like I said in my first post, both sides are minimizing the actual situation. The Right wants to spin it as a rejection of a bad candidate by the GOP. The Left want to spin it as a rejection of Trump. The truth is that the Black vote came out in record numbers and voted down a notorious racist.

I don't know how that's possible since Doug Jones got almost 100k less votes than Vivian Davis Figures in the previous Alabama senate race.

The Democrats would have had to lose A LOT of supporters between then and now to make up for this "Black surge" the media is pushing.

Sure, try to spin it whichever way you like. But anyone who hasn't drank the kool-aid knows it's shady business when a candidate doesn't disclose how they got dump trucks full of money to pay for their campaign... especially when it comes out afterwards that it was from special interest groups that are out-of-state.

But trying to buy elections seems to be a common practice among Democrats lately.

I never said I agreed with the Citizen's United ruling, but let's be honest here. It's necessary to be competitive in politics these days. It's not like the Republicans are not organizing Super PACs out of some ethical obligation. Hell, they were the ones who lobbied to have CU implemented in the first place.

You are just mad that the Republicans didn't buy the election instead, since I never see you call out any Republicans for their Super PACs. Trump's for instance. So spare me your crocodile tears. No one believes you.

You talk about ATS to your party mates? That sounds like a grave violation of one of the two greatest party commandments.
"Thou shall not discuss politics"

PS: BTW, the other cardinal commandment is:
"Thou shall not discuss religion"

No, that is an opinion that is not backed by any facts. Anything to interject 'race' into the conversation right? He was a #ty candidate. Ethics violations multiple times and removed from the bench twice. I would not vote for him if I was on fire and pulling the level put me out.

This was not a WIN for black democrats like you and the media were pushing. I mean, how quick we jumped from misogyny to racism...par for the course!

It's both sides. Trust me. In fact just several years ago, the average congressional campaign took in $1.7 million in donations. It's higher now and back on what we're talking about two of the largest if not the largest Superpacs are conservative...The congressional Leadership fund and the Senate leadership fund...they raised almost $24 million last year. So cry about Democrats all you want but it's the conservatives raking in outside money and sprinkling it on all the campaigns more so than the Democrats.

a reply to: Krazysh0t Well if ATS is a religion then hot damn. And ya we talk about ATS sometimes. Many of my friends are on this site. The funny thing is before this thread, for years we made a promise to never give up our name to one another. I fear that now I shot myself in the foot.

Furthermore, if you look at the 2016 Senate results, you will see if followed Trump's voting pattern. This was a flawed candidate and poor GOP turnout. Won by 1%....it was not a blow out and it is amazing Moore got that many votes to be honest.

It must have stung when you guys flushed $24 million down the toilet for Ossoff's failed campaign in Georgia. He got "Handled" by a candidate who barely raised 1/10th of his funding from local donations.

I have to give it to the Democrats for doubling down, but it's funny that a party that preaches about socialism and income inequality is outspending their opposition 10 to 1 in every race.

Who cares? Moore was a creep. Just like Franken.


The GOP cares. They can ill afford for the party to disintegrate any further. Trump campaigning for Moore blew up in their face and they are beginning to blame guess who?


Again, who cares? I'm not the GOP, but as a conservative Republican voter I think Moore was a creep that deserved to lose. The Dems apparently see this as a great portentous victory. I think they're reading more into this than is there.

Yeah, I agree. Unless the Democrat that one turns out to be a great guy that everyone likes. That might change things if he could keep that seat, but it's like Trump winning. Everyone turns that into this great republican victory, but he was running against Hillary. We really need some better candidates.
