Trump just destroyed Republican party
« on: November 05, 2018, 12:36:17 PM »
Forget the blue wave, it is going to be blue Tsunami.

I've lots of friends who never voted are lining up to vote this time, and mostly all "D". The theme is , Putin's "Agent Orange" is not in tune with American values.

Once people watch and learn and vote, they'll vote again and again. AO has permanently cured the Democratic voter's apathy.

Where is the Blue Tsunami? Feels more like a 5 foot wave hitting Gibraltar. LOL!

Maybe that your so called values are not in tune with true American values and needs?

Looks like the democrats took the House while republicans kept the Senate. Perhaps more of the tide coming in vs a tsunami.

The Democrats getting control of the house is major win, especially given the issues with polling accuracy in recent years. My guess is the next 2 years will be even more polarizing.

Trump will set the tone. He does not compromise and a Democratic House will be red meat for him.

The key will be if the Democrats are able to find any significant dirt on Trump. They have 2 years to dig something up. If not, there is s solid chance Trump will be a 2 term President.

If you look at the title of this thread and terms such as Blue Tsunami you clearly see signs of someone who is desperate and out of touch with reality.

Democrats took back the house with a few seats advantage after being out since 2010. What happened just before 2010? Obamacare.

What States made a difference once again or like in every election? Pennsylvania, Virginia and a few other swing States.

If the Democrats keep pushing identity politics and far left plans ahead of true voters interest, they will lose again in 2020. Their problem is to think that being elected means a green light on all their extreme left agenda.

If they are serious, time to get rid of Pelosi and have a moderate leader. They call Trump an idiot, racist, etc, then put some adult in charge. Although, I won't hold my breath.

It does seem like Obamacare and Obama's Medicaid expansion continue to gain in popularity.  3 additional "Red" states voted to expand Medicaid.  My own "Red" state, Louisiana, elected a Democrat as Governor a few years ago and promptly adopted Obama's Medicaid expansion.

Personally, I get my health insurance through the "Obamacare" exchanges and have the best coverage at the lowest price of my lifetime - something that was always out of reach as a self employed American not part of some large "group."

Pretty good results as far as I'm concerned.  I prefer split government to any one party getting to do what they want.   Republicans have had both houses of Congress and the Presidency for two years and increased spending enormously.  That should be proof enough that anyone who thinks Republicans are for small/reduced/limited government are just kidding themselves.   With a US type two-party system gridlock is the best you can hope for IMHO.   Here's hoping nothing "gets done".

From 2.1% popular vote to about 7-8% against the party at the center is significant especially in a very healthy economy. Tsunami or not who knows.

GFP, your candor with sharing your personal information is to be lauded. Especially the point of entrepreneurship and health coverage. Freedom from becoming financially maimed by lack of health insurance is huge. I am personally aware of folks, especially those in their 50’s, whose only reason to remain in dead end jobs is group coverage. Whether it is ACA or better version 2 will unshackle a critical demography. There’s lots of corollary good to get unleashed as healthcare gets untethered from employment or entrepreneurship.

The Left continues to call Trump an agent of Putin, but yet seems okay with the many questionable contributions Clinton accepted.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/hacked-emails-show-extent-of-foreign-government-donations-to-clinton-foundation/2016/10/16/ce871a82-9319-11e6-a6a3-d50061aa9fae_story.html?utm_term=.33e56132fd84

https://www.vox.com/2016/8/25/12615340/hillary-clinton-foundation

And some of my favorites:

Saudi Arabian Influence:

When Clinton first took office in 2008, the foundation disclosed that Saudi Arabia donated between $10 to $25 million, with some donations coming as recently as 2014 when Clinton prepared her run for the presidency. The foundation received an additional $1 to $5 million donation from the “Friends of Saudi Arabia,” which was cofounded by a Saudi prince. Critics question the ethics of taking such vast sums of money from individuals and a government with one of the worst human rights records in the world.

King Of Moroccan Meeting :

Emails released by WikiLeaks, in a likely attempt to influence the U.S. election, also reveal Clinton arranged for her foundation to host a meeting in Morocco in return for a $12 million donation from the country’s king. The donation came from a Moroccan state-owned mining company, which later received a $92 million loan guarantee while Clinton served as secretary of state.

“This was HRC’s idea, our office approached the Moroccans and they 100 percent believe they are doing this at her request. The King has personally committed approx. $12 million both for the endowment and to support the meeting,” Clintons aide Huma Abedin wrote in a leaked email to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Russian Uranium Ties:

In another troubling instance, foundation donations were closely linked to a uranium mining company tied to the Kremlin. Canadian leaders of a mining company funneled millions of dollars to the foundation while Clinton was secretary of state, at the same time they needed Department of State approval for the sale of their company to Russia. The Clinton State Department-approved deal gave Russia control of one-fifth of the entire uranium supply in the U.S.

The chairman of the uranium mining company donated $2.35 million to the foundation, without any disclosure from the Clintons. After Russia announced its intention to make a bid for the uranium mining company, former President Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 to deliver a speech in Moscow.

Indonesian Tobacco Magnate:

The Clinton Foundation’s ties also extend to powerful individuals seeking assistance from the U.S. government, with the help of the Clinton network. Indonesian tobacco magnate Putera Sampoerna donated and worked with the foundation before he “got the U.S. government to underwrite millions in loans offered by the foundation and secured high-profile support for its activities from Sec. Clinton and other senior federal officials,” according to a report by The Washington Free Beacon.

Algeria, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman:

The Clinton Foundation further accepted donations from several foreign governments while Clinton served as secretary of state, including Algeria, Kuwait, Qatar, and Oman.

In the instance of Algeria, the Clinton Foundation acknowledged to The Washington Post in 2015 it should have sought clearance from the Department of State’s ethics office before taking $500,000. After Clinton left office, the foundation received a large donation from the United Arab Emirates.

Clinton Foundation officials ignored nearly all “best practices” urged by good governance organizations, a July Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found. When Trump challenged Clinton to return donations from countries that abuse women and homosexuals, a DCNF investigation found it would amount to between $19.3 million and $55.7 million.

But yes, Trump is bad......
