Republicans cast 6 million more votes than Democrats but did not flip all those seats. A difference of 6.1% I guess redistricting worked again and the voice of the voter was not heard either. A lot of those close races also were not blow outs.

We are just very polarized as a nation right now.

The only thing that was “fatal” to the Republicans was the inability to see that the Liberals want and need to have free, unfettered reign to kill unborn children.
They want to have that out when they get knocked up for the 5th time from having sex in exchange for drugs.

But then they are hypocrites when they try to say that Trump locked up children at the border, when in reality they don’t care about children at all.


Either you respect democracy, or you don't.

The left will swear this is true and that the right won't elect anyone that isn't Christian, it's not true we've had many candidates we've been behind that weren't Christian but they still had conservative values. They won't tell you that though.

Long winded post to say political parties will always make more of some things than is really there .

Keep in mind these are the same people that basically force their president and other democrats to tell people how Christian they are

The reality is we don't CARE what their religion is as long as they hold the same conservative values on life and other things that we do

Look at the economy in 2016, and look at the economy now.



Why 2016 keeps getting uglier for US economy



When it comes to economic growth, 2016 is looking a lot like 2015 — and probably even worse.

Friday’s report showing that gross domestic product grew just 0.7 percent in the fourth quarter brought to a conclusion another year of dashed hopes for economic liftoff — “escape velocity,” as it is sometimes called.

Strange how the Left doesn't want to vote for Christians, but have no problem voting for pedophiles.

That is a big flag, it kinds of make you go humm, who really are the ones financing the democrat leadership and with millions of dollars.

Then it comes to mind, US is on the top-ranking countries where child sex trafficking is out of control.

I guess is big money involved, that is for sure.

I am waiting when sicko in Californication declare that California is a safe haven for pedophiles, oh, I forgot, they do not longer want to be call pedos, now they are adults that are attracted to minors.

I believe it would have happened if they would have left the abortion issue alone.



So, you wanting to kill your own babies up to the day they are to be born, for now, is more important than the destruction being brought by your democrat leaders?

The increase in crime which we haven't seen in decades which have been caused by DEMOCRAT/LIBERAL officials don't matter?

The fact that inflation continues to be the highest in 40 years, and the prices of everything is through the roof thanks to DEMOCRATS/LIBERAL policies don't matter?

Is it really more important for you and the large majority of Americans to murder unborn babies up to the day they are to be born than the fact that Biden's dictatorial government has labeled, and made laws, against "their political opponents"? Or the fact that even PARENTS have been labeled as "domestic terrorists' and the FBI has been set against them for criticizing CRT/the Marxist and sexual indoctrination of children as young as 5 years old?

You think that "being able to murder your unborn babies" up to the day they are to be born is more important than Americans struggling to put food on the table, put gas on their tanks, etc?...

Out of 26 candidates that Trump endorsed 22 won, but you leftists and your lying media want to claim this was a major red dud?...

We won the House 100% certain, and we are closer to winning the Senate, although we will have to wait to find out. Democrats allegedly have 48 seats and Republicans have 49 seats.

As a majority more Republicans won races than democrats. So how can you claim that you/democrats/the left won?...

Did you look at New York's map? Almost the entire state is RED...



abcnews.go.com...

This reminds me of how Biden won in 2020 with less districts than Obama, by about over 100 less districts?, and somehow still won and got more votes than Obama himself and more than Trump when Trump got more LEGAL votes than any other President in U.S. history, including Obama.

All that democrats had to do, again, was concentrate in stealing a few precincts to take over new York.

OMG another person who doesn't understand economics.

Debt - Total amount owed by the government.

Deficit - Annual Budget shortfall

We add to the debt when the annual budget runs over the amount of taxes taken in. If we happen to take in more taxes than we spend we reduce the debt.

Deficit under Trump skyrocketed up. He did a lot to try to cut spending in certain area's but his tax cuts, plus other budgetary concerns exploded the deficit even before Covid.

Just to give you some background here and believe me Obama had some doozies in office as well.

2015 Deficit - $450 Billion (Obama)
2016 Deficit - $587 Billion (Obama)
2017 Deficit - $666 Billion (Obama)
2018 Deficit - $770 Billion (Trump)
2019 Deficit - $984 Billion (Trump)
2020 Deficit triples under Covid (Free Money 'yall... This will bite you later and you will blame Biden for it.)

Hey I'm not blaming Trump for the handouts under Covid. Companies were laying off people everywhere, the economy stalled.. Something had to be done - Did they overstimulate - well heck yes but always easy to Monday morning quarterback after the dust has settled.

Deficit has been largely reduced under Biden. Granted many people believe he should have had larger reductions than he has attained, but before you use this are your ammo against a BIden admin - realize that Trump blasted the debt and increased the deficit. The only presidents that outpaced him were George W and Lincoln.


Fun fact

If there is an annual deficit budget shortfall because we don’t bring in enough revenue from taxes then my oh my what do we do?

Well we issue what are called Treasury bonds to fund our government which is basically getting loans from foreign countries, pension funds, hedge funds and good ol joe six pack in his 401k! We used to get fantastic interest rates on these loans the past 20 years but now because of inflation
Rates are going up and up which means soon very very soon interest on the United States Debt will be 2nd biggest line item on our budget overtaking the Dept of Defense!

In other words it’s costing the USA wayyyy more money to service our debt then it did even 2 years ago. It’s like your credit card going from 8.99% for $15000 in debt to 29.9%.
Time to get a new phone number so the debt collectors can’t find you! Throw that credit card bill in the trash! Your minimum payment went from $500 a month to $3000 a month!!

Wait there is more! Guess who stoppped buying US Treasury bonds the past two years! Russia and China and Japan and the whole world.

Wonder why rates are going up on Treasury bonds? Because the rest of the world is freaked out about our debt and the strong dollar and is worried they will be paid back with worthless inflated dollars so they said PEACE OUT to
Us Treasury bonds.

Wait there is more! So who is buying the treasury bonds to finance our government now?
WE ARE of course. THE FEDERAL RESERVE.
It’s called the monetization of the debt and now you know where the inflation is coming from. Inflation feeds on itself in an ever expanding Ponzi scheme.


To sum it up: The USA is printing money out of thin air and loaning that money to itself to fund half our annual budget.

This is not a conspiracy theory. Do your own research. This is 100% facts.

Backing mostly incumbents and safe seats doesn't make you captain amazing when they retain their seats.

It is undeniable to anyone who understands anything about the history and expectations of the mid terms, that this was a disaster for republicans. It was an awful, awful performance. And that's with a potus who is basically absent.

Trump is poison and he's done. He can sob and wail on truth social about fox and desantis all he likes, but he's reduced to being a bitter angry old man repeating the same points time and again at ever-smaller cult rallies.

This was a disastrous performance for republicans. To claim otherwise means you either don't understand, you're in denial, or simply you're being disingenuous.

Accept it and move on. It's a message and a wake up call.

Incorrect; all the polls leading up to the election and the exit polls during the election showed that the Republican messaging was on par; which is why everyone, including Democrats expected them to do better.

The truth of the matter is that Tribalisum prevented people from voting on the issues. Politics has become a sport and people vote in order for their team to win.

The slim margins show us that their a lot less "independents" than is generally thought.

That might be a good thing for Democrats this time around because they didn't lose as bad as they would have otherwise. But its certainly bad for the country.

Andrew Cuomo says Zeldin coming within 5 points of victory ‘a real wake-up call’

Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said New York Republican gubernatorial nominee Lee Zeldin’s strong, yet unsuccessful performance in Tuesday’s election is a “wake-up call” for Democrats.

“But to come within 5 points — that’s the closest race since George Pataki, I mean, so that is a real wake-up call,” he added. “And it did cost Democrats, it has cost Democrats precious congressional seats.”

In 2018, Cuomo had won reelection by more than 20 percentage points, with Hochul appearing alongside him on the party’s ticket.
