A new poll conducted in ten pivotal states shows the Democratic party may see a “red tide” instead of the media’s predicted “blue wave” this November


i get a red tide once a month.

i'd be happy to send hannity some, if he's so keen to analyze it.


Wouldn't sending bio-hazardous substances through the mail be a Federal crime?

Now that's funny. Trump will never meet Kim Jon Hung. Just another attempt to get more idiots to support his effort to enrich himself at taxpayer expense. Please open your eyes and see what's happening.

Posting a reply to your stupid comment out of obligation. You are no luminary. You are a conservative that has no thoughts of your own. No ideas. No forward thinking. You tell others to get a platform, but what the # is your platform? Keep the 'two party' (One) system and pretend you're free? Pretend your dear leader gives a fraction of a # about you? Lol.

What the # do you stand for? What is the republican 'platform' except racism, pretending to be the 'tough guy' (small dick complex), fear (let me have my guns, cuz that's the only way I can defend myself!!), and twisting the words of the founding fathers to fit their retarded ideology? Please enlighten me, Mr. Illiminary.
Conservative arguments are ridiculous and retarded, just like the imps that propagate them.


Responding to your poor silly self. I'm not a conservative. I don't belong to a ~platform.~ I am not a Democrat, not a Republican. I did not vote for Trump. Who is stuck in a two-party paradox again? That would be you.

Secondly, I do not have a dick because I am a female. Let's assume the small dick problem is a lot of projection on your part. It shows in your post, for instance.

Third and finally, the words of the founding fathers are pretty simple. They were written that way so even stupid people could understand them. Like the phrase "shall not be infringed." Simple words for simple people, yet you don't get it.

Have fun with your hatred. A pretty good representation of the Democrat party you are!!!

I really think "statist" is a better label for what many folks currently call "liberals" and "progressives."

"Statist" is a new term for me. The original meaning of "liberal" was someone who thought "liberally," as in questioning the status quo. By comparison, a "conservative"was someone who opposed change to that status quo. I don't know exactly when the term "progressive" came into popular use, but it obviously uses the connotation of the word "progress."

I used to identify myself as a liberal because I did believe, and still do, that there are many ways we can make things work better. That changed about the same time as the Democrats lost the South, because suddenly the new ideas to change that status quo became dangerously out of touch with reality. In that sense, I guess "conservative" fits me to some degree simply because I oppose what I see as ill-conceived change.


Its been a relatively slow transformation over the past decade, so its a bit easy to conflated.

I, for one, feel its all part of a much larger picture, namely what Aquino called "MindWar." However, I suspect that will only become clear over time. For better or worse...

Slow, creeping change is indeed a major tool used to institute policies that are unpalatable to the present population. It is also one reason why I tend to second-guess any political move I see as questionable. Smoking regulations are a prime example (yes, I smoke tobacco, and will until the day I die, which will probably occur with one burning between my lips). The first restriction I remember was banning smoking on domestic flights of two hours or less. Most smokers can make it two hours without a nicotine fix, and not many people flew, so no one really pushed back. Then it was all domestic flights, then all flights period. Government buildings became smoke-free, then restaurants started offering smoke-free rooms... that became smoking-permitted rooms... and soon enough most restaurants were completely smoke-free. Now we have actual laws prohibiting smoking in restaurants. The sane thing with bars, and eventually all public buildings. Now there are some areas where one cannot have a quiet smoke inside their own home, smokers are so expectant of having to go outside (despite weather conditions) that they stopped smoking indoors even at home, and the college campus I attend now claims even open air areas on campus to be smoking-restricted. Of course, my policy is that everything that I own defaults to a smoking-permitted area, so I still smoke in my car. Woe unto he who decides to direct me otherwise... there are plenty of people out there big enough and bad enough to stop me, I know, but I haven't met them yet.

I realize that I won't get accolades here for my stubborn refusal to demonize the evil tobacco demon, but the point is that over time, an initially unpopular proposal, that was actually considered impossible, was instituted and in many cases codified.


Personally, I am all for things like decentralization and making terms like "basic needs" more fluid and relevant based on our tools and technology.

I wholeheartedly agree with decentralization whenever practical. As for the "basic needs," I can see reason in your proposal, to a degree. Technology does indeed change our lives and with it comes a higher standard of living. One of the inherent problems with capitalism is that it is possible for people to become so destitute that they are unable to participate. Charity helps abate this problem, but some sort of secular safety net is also beneficial, and a higher standard of living raises that safety net as well. As long as the safety net does not become a safety hammock, I support the premise.


In fact, I feel framing it in this way might be the only way to prepare for the upcoming conflict between culture and technology.

The true conflict is not between culture and technology, but rather between various cultures because of technology. Culture will absorb and adjust to technology, but when technology places multiple cultures with antithetical belief systems in close proximity via instant, global communication, the result must be a clash of cultural values... which is a good argument for decentralization of power.

One need only change one's name to "Clinton" and no one will prosecute.

With that last name, one could import baby seals, beat them half to death with a meat tenderizer in the middle of Times Square at high noon, finish them off by skinning them alive, throw the bloody eyeballs at policemen, and people would still rush to protect them from the evil seals.

The big problem for democrats is that they showed their behinds when they were willing to let the govt. shut down over the whole DACA issue. The dems are largely viewed as open border globalists who have lost touch with the average American and seem to care only about pet causes such as illegal aliens and bathrooms for LGBT transgenders, instead of education, jobs, and rebuilding infrastructure. They have totally alienated the white working class with their embracing of identity politics, and that's a sizeable voting bloc. And here you have republicans talking about jobs, rebuilding the country, blocking unfettered immigration, all important issues to working class people. I have to pity for the current democratic party, if they lose in droves they have only themselves to blame for alienating so many people.

...and then you have lunatics trying to downplay Trump's getting North Korea to come to their senses and the table... as evidenced by


'Morning Joe' Hosts on Trump-North Korea Meeting: 'He Can't Even Make a Deal With a Porn Star'

The hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” slammed President Trump over his potential meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“It’s all bluster, there’s no deal, because he doesn’t know how to make a deal,” co-host Joe Scarborough said Friday. “He’s horrible at making deals. That’s why the man ended up $9 billion in debt.”

“He can’t even make a deal with a porn star,” fellow co-host Mika Brzezinski replied, in reference to a nondisclosure agreement between Trump and adult-film actress Stormy Daniels. “He doesn’t even sign the papers of the deal that he struck.”

“That’s exactly right,” Scarborough said. “His lawyers can’t even draft a competent deal to keep a porn star quiet. How is he going to keep the North Koreans from getting nuclear weapons?”

You appear to be confused...

the "problem" for democrats is the extreme gerrymandering done by the republicans. in Pennsylvania, even the court said enough of that bulls**t, there are now several court cases in other states trying to get this obvious voter fraud fixed....

Meanwhile, in PA, the lawsuit is over Democratic gerrymandering.


don't look at what is said, look at the actions....

Yes, let's, shall we?


democrats tried to get "basic" healthcare for the poorest workers and indigent people, republicans said...F that...

...by raising the cost of healthcare and getting the deductibles so high that even those buying insurance couldn't afford to use it, and by demanding that everyone buy specific insurance by law.


clean water and clean air??.....republicans said it hurts the wealthy's bottom line...so F that....

Flint Michigan... remember that one? Where were the Republicans? Oh, yeah, there weren't any. Local Democrats let the water become so polluted it was causing lead poisoning.


80% of the tax cuts go to the top 1%....all the while the republicans are spouting about that extra 20 bucks a week a lowly worker MIGHT get, even while Trump said to his wealthy buds about the "millions" he cut from their taxes...

Taxes did not go down much on the upper class, but middle class saw a major decrease to everything from tax bracket percentage to a rise in the standard deduction.

What's next? You going to blame the Republican Party for the shootings in Chicago?

I'm not a Republican, but damnation if posts like this don't make me loathe to ever pull the lever for a Democrat. Coupled with Nancy Pelosi thinking mowing the grass will correct illegal immigration, Chuck Schumer shutting down the government in live view of everyone and then trying to blame the President for his Senate vote, posts like this make me afraid I'd be voting for someone without walking-around sense.

Keep showing the American people why they should vote for Republicans. You're doing a great job.

Um, no, its not why dems are losing. Its PERCEPTIONS like this one that are why dems are losing. We saw the same thing for over a year when Hillary kept jumping from one rationalization to another for why she lost. The democrats are in a state of denial. Its an illustration of the disconnect between them and the average American. And when Debbie Wasserman Schultz meddled in the election against Bernie Sanders, was THAT gerrymandering? She should go to jail for that by the way, but she never will. Here is a question for you; why did Trump win in states that previously went for Obama? Why didn't Hillary get her "landslide"? Answer: its because people are totally in a state of distrust to anything the dems say at this point, and that has very little to do with Gerrymandering. BTW, I am a registered democrat, and I will not vote for anyone in that party until they purge their racists and their globalists. I would rather vote for a republican (and trust me, I have no great love for them) than a democratic party that pretends to have our backs but instead sticks a huge knife there as soon as they secure our vote. And ok, maybe we got a crappy tax break, but how is that any worse than Hillary pushing through the TPP (she would have done it) and the resulting job losses? At least Trump is trying to bring jobs INTO the country, all the democrats want to do is flood it with people who will compete with you for what jobs are left, and sign off terrible globalist trade agreements that will send even more jobs overseas. Sorry, they lost me until that changes.
