There's a lesson or two in this massive loss by Roy Moore. Yes the race was close but it should not have been. One of the lesson's is when Mitch McConnell and the swamp get their way, the people do not.
Roy Moore was not the people's choice, Mo Brooks was but Mitch wasn't having that. That's why they appointed their chosen swamp creature to Jeff Sessions old seat thinking he would sail on in with the power of the incumbency. The people weren't having it. Just like in the presidential election when we defied Mitch and friends and chose Trump to be our candidate, we won...and we won big. When Mitch gets his way....we don't....
I don't think Mitch will learn his lesson because I don't think he's on our side and I don't know that he ever was. The question is are we going to learn our lesson? If we pick a candidate against the wishes of the swamp we are going to have to fight like hell to get them across the finish line. This is going to get worse before it gets better....are you summer soldier? A sunshine patriot? This loss was discouraging but get over it...we have work to do and we will win some battles and lose some battles. Only a loser quits the game so saddle up...2018 is just around the corner.
Roy Moore is going to win tonight so chill out. That Fox News polls was pure garbage and no one should be surprised about that.
Ali Alexander did a periscope on this and you should all watch it . He knows of that which he speaks.
I have never seen a more coordinate and brutal campaign hit job than this one. Donald Trump would be a close 2nd because running for POTUS it is to be expected and if you are a decent Republican, forces will unite to destroy you...it's just the way things are done. We use to be powerless to stop it because we didn't have a fighter in there until Trump.
Back to this coordinated hit job.....A lot of you remember the MS Senate race where the GOPe spent 11 million dollars smearing a very good and decent man...Chris McDaniels. They called him racist and tried to paint him as a white nationlist. He's not. They spent 11 million dollars working against the will of the people because McDaniels would not vote to continue the GOPe's gravy train. They exhausted all outlets even paying democrats to switch over and not vote for the democrat in the primary but to instead vote for Thad Cochran : 41 yrs in office: 11 million $'s: Barely walks, barely talks: GOP...if this is the future, your days are numbered ....Anyways, the blatant disregard from the establishment Republicans towards the voters of MS was an open wound that still hasn't healed. Every election we have a chance we are getting our revenge. You're welcome Mitch McConnell...you should probably be careful what you wish for...
The GOPe didn't have enough resolve to fight Obama and his policies so they "compromised" while telling us just wait until we have all the power and we will fix it. With election after election giving them the power they asked for we found out they never had any intention of fixing things. We found out they were as much as part of the swamp as any democrat. We learned what they really think of us and in return we learned that we aren't doing this anymore.
If most voters in AL had their way in the beginning, Mo Brooks would probably be the nominee but of course the GOPe had other plans. They knew Mo Brooks was the better more effective candidate but they wanted their swamp creature Luther Strange. They thought Roy Moore would be easier to defeat than Mo Brooks. They lost that bet and now we have Roy Moore. If the GOPe would stop interfering with the will of the people things would be a whole lot better but the swamp is going do their thing.
Roy Moore is not perfect. Say what you want about him but he is not the swamp. He is not with Her. He won't vote to kill babies up until the day before they are born. He will not put illegal immigrants interests before American interests. Roy Moore answers to God, not Nancy Pelosi.
The left and the right, the media, and George Soros have all united to take Roy Moore out and he is still standing. I think like Trump, if God can be for you, no man can stand against.
Those of you worried about Doug Jones winning just chill...this is going to be Nov 8th all over again.
I am not a fan of NYT's but their election tracker is better than the others....
Also read The Conservative Treehouse analysis on the Fox Poll..make sure you read the whole thing, especially the part about Cold Anger...here is just a taste
There’s a level of anger far deeper and more consequential than expressed rage or visible behavior. Cold Anger does not need to go to violence. For those who carry it, no conversation is needed. You cannot poll or measure it; and even those who carry it avoid discussion. And that decision has nothing whatsoever to do with any form of correctness.
Cold Anger is not hatred, it is far more purposeful.
Hatred takes energy. Cold Anger is not willing to give energy to the opposition
