  • The House goes to Democrats, The Senate remains the same as now. Ten GOP governorships will flip to blue, including Georgia and Florida.

    I sure hope you're right because under no circumstances should all three branches of government be in the control of one party.  Too bad the Founding Fathers didn't see that at some point, people with fewer ethics and concern for the country than they had would be running the government.

  • I'm hoping that I'm proven wrong. I won't be however. My question is this Spunky: With all the animosity and antagonism between Congress and the Executive branch raging at an all time high,(to say nothing of the internal strife in both chambers) how do you avoid a complete standoff? If the Democrats pursue this suicidal notion of impeachment, it'll be a one item agenda next year. Regarding the founders, they didn't foresee party politics dominating the business of Congress, no more than they could see people making a lifelong career out of "public service".

    I agree with you that if impeachment is what the Dems are hanging their hats on, Trump could easily have a second term (heaven forbid).  I have never seen such outright animosity both internally and externally in government.  It does not bode well for the future if we can't get back on some stable and civil footing.  As for your comments on the Founding Fathers, you're 100% correct which is probably why they did not stipulate to term limits.  Considering that it's Congress that would correct this, we both know that isn't going to happen because none of them are willing to kill the goose that lays their golden eggs.  It isn't just term limits that need fixing; it's campaign finance laws and the prohibition of lobbying for anyone who has served in an elected position.

    I'm sure I'll get an A in chemistry and a few others. Probably a B in economics and a D- in political science.

    Those would have been close to what I got on my mid terms.  I got all As in social studies when all of the questions were about how government works but when the teacher made us write a report to explain why liberals and conservatives think the way they do I got an F.  

    She let me redo the report so I found someone else to write it for me.  The teacher said it deserved A but she said she didn't believe I wrote it myself so I got a B.

    Nice try though. Many authors have ghost writers. I also would not have been able to write something about how anyone thinks. That would have been my report.

    A bunch of elections will be held. Some candidates will win and others will lose, and the media (and some folks on here) will overreact and lay the hyperbole on thick no matter the outcomes.

    I predict some people will be happy and some people will be disappointed at the results.

    I predict that under half of eligible Americans will vote.
    Of those that do ... those registered as members of one of the major political parties will vote party-line.

    Do you have primaries ... to decide which Republican / Democrat is running for their Party?


    We do, and you only get the ballot for the Party you are registered with ... unless the Party allows independents to also vote.
    (I discovered if you join both Parties, you still can only declare yourself registered with one.  Seems that should be illegal, to me.  Denying the opportunity to vote in a Party you are a member of.)

    Yes, we have primaries. Both parties are held the same day. We out in and after we sign the register,  we are asked which parties ballot we want. Of course, we are only allowed one.

    No red candidate will be elected dogcatcher, much less any post that matters.
