No. But, the 10 commandments and religion in general have no business being in politics.



We wouldn't want politicians following things like : Don't steal, don't lie, don't covet my wife, etc. etc. etc.

Could hamper that democratic-process....

What will a blue wave do for America? What will it do for me personally?

Assuming Democrats could somehow actually deliver this "blue wave" (despite their pivot to the extreme left), what good will it possibly do for America?

Most people just believe what they want ... screw reality.

Most people are asleep .... because they like it like that.

sad to say it, but i believe you are 100% correct here.
what i don't understand is why people look up to politicians like they are some sort of rock star? sometimes these people are being taken advantage of through taxes, poor education systems but still hold these politicians in high regard. what am i missing?

How does pointing to hard data that shows the Dems have been consistently overperforming make me partisan?

If anything making a big deal over a minor seat in a historically Red district is pretty indicative of who's partisan.


And you are completely dismissing the relevance of a Trump like candidate winning a seat in a majority Hispanic area that was held by Democrats for over 130 years.

And another poster put up a blurb from an article that explicitly said not to take the info you are championing too seriously.

Someone has blinders on but it's not who you think.

We did not want Roy Moore. We would have voted in roadkill before that moron.


We, and by we I mean you, fell for the same tactic being used against kavanaugh. The letter was proven to be forged, but by then it was too late. The left succeeded in convicting a man in the court of public opinion and won a seat for it.

I am willing to bet that if his name had not sounded Hispanic, it was Flores, he wouldn't have won.
