Out of the total of 36% of eligible voters who voted in this year’s election, even if Republicans averaged a 10% margin of victory over Dems overall (55% to 45%), that means only 19% of American voters voted for Republicans. So Democrats should be running scared because 81% of U.S. voters didn’t vote for Republicans?

As we all know, there’s a big difference between wanting to engage folks with varying opinions in conversation and just plain old garden variety trolling. When you see the following techniques employed — you know that you’ve found yourself a genuine troll. Bless his li’l heart…
Many veterans are injured either physically or emotionally or by some illness brought on by (in my case) Agent Orange. We all carry memories that we wish we never had to.
Capitalism is apparently a continuous merry go round of bubbles and then burst where the economy is concerned, but the too big to fail are bailed out by the too poor and too insignificant to matter when it comes to returning the economy to its former self.
It is not only the college students who don’t know history but many of our Congressmen/women and Governors (former half term comes to mind, you know she could see Russia from her back porch.).
Test yourself. Can you think of other words in our (not hour) language that either are spelled the same but mean something else? Or spelled differently but pronounced the same?
What do you do now that Republicans won a wave election? Just what Republicans did when Democrats won wave elections in 2008 and 2012. Become intransigent and refuse to work with them because America made clear they want a President who’ll block Republicans and represent their values. Easy peasy!
I knew things were going to go badly in NY. I am no spring chicken, and the vast majority of voters were older than me (we’re trending into the 60-90 year old range).
Too many Americans have become “dumb” voters, they vote on little more than emotion. They feel upset at DC so they knee jerk vote for the party that doesn’t control the White House…even though it is the party they’re voting for that has caused the problems that led to their being upset.
It’s election night and there’s no better place to spend it than in our real time live chat here at PlanetPOV!
A lot of money has been spent on a tiny Missouri state assemby race by the GOP….by our estimates six times the average. Why? There is no way she was ever going to win. Why throw so much money at so small a race?
The Grand Strategy at Work!
Has this ever worked? Have Democrats ever succeeded as a party by agreeing with Republicans, “I suppose you’re right, The President from our party IS a dick!”? If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, the Democratic Party may need to hold its next convention in Arkham Asylum.
Martha Coakley reminds me of Hillary Clinton to the extent that she is clearly intelligent, cares about the issues, yet fails to connect to the citizenry.
Safe to say more Americans have died from the flu in the past two weeks than from Ebola. Why are they not fear mongering about the flu?
At least nine University of North Carolina employees have been fired or placed under disciplinary review for taking part in a cheating scandal that stretched over two decades and impacted some 3,100 students.
