A question about the midterms for others..

So, what's been the primary Democrat talking point for y'all's midterm elections? As sherb predicted, here in FL it's been healthcare. Or how bad the Republican candidate is. Contrast that with the Republicans, who are basically saying their opponents are in league with Satan and not much else.

    In WI they each have been advertising as if the other is Satan. I'm glad this sh-it is over today.

    Here, Dems have been pushing healthcare - either higher premiums or Medicaid privatization. I do find it a little humorous that Dems have been claiming that the Reps have been swayed by accepting insurance company money. There's nothing here but farms and insurance companies.

    Republicans have been going after Democrats for wanting to roll back tax decreases. They've also been going after the Dems on immigration.

    The Republicans are trying hard to tie Dems to Pelosi, but Trump is well-liked here so it doesn't work in reverse.

    Healthcare, followed by protecting Social Security.

    Republicans are claiming that preexisting condition coverage and protecting Medicare and Social Security is sacred to them, so Dems counter by documenting GOP incumbents voting to remove preexisting condition requirements, and clips of Ryan and McFaustus saying cutting Medicare, SS and other entitlements is how they will pay for the tax cuts.

    GOP now running a generic ad saying a vote for any Dem is a vote for open borders (cut to video of migrant caravan), UK-style socialized medicine and a weakened military.

    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    BTW - There has been exceptionally large turnout in my mixed rural/small town PA district despite heavy rain most of the morning.

    Here the Democrats ARE pointing out connections some candidates have to Pres. Trump.

    Who are these Democrats you speak of? I haven't ever bothered to even look at the results after a UT election.

    I have a feeling Romney won.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    We had an anti-gerrymandering law on the ballot I hope passed. But when you think about it, I doubt there is any formula where a district in Utah is not going to be heavily Republican.

    The only real issue I think has been Trump. Preexisting conditions is not a barnburner for most. And the immigrant boogieman is slowly losing its scary factor. Coming soon to your cable news....Corruption hearings, on and on from both sides. So much dirty laundry to wash.

    Obviously way too difficult for the cognitive dissonant national religion churchstate Islam Christiananality pedophilia mentality business where if one nation under God with equal justice under law can't accept one would not consider voting for thieving US Constitution - old glory - old testament arsonists in becoming a citizen why would their super ego suicidal homicidal sociopsychopathic "man is God" "death to the infidels" second coming thru 9/11 KKK churchstate of lynching enforcement in avoidance of their 9/11 debacle accept any other walk on water higher than the supreme swastika up Uranus court conclusion to actually consider to vote after such a vile diatribe tautology.

    Good news in FL, felons now have the right to vote. So now Trump's former advisers can move here and make the state even more red.

    As the weekly CNA commented on the elections where Trump's daily press televised briefing on winning big where Repubs lost the house: "what an idiot" but doubt as much of a bunch idiots as the burning Bush's losing the World Trade Towers.

    Could we maybe find a different term? She was considered an opponent to Trump and if not a moderate, at least not crazy. Does she HAVE to be a democrat because she's black?

    What's the word we use to describe people's personal traits, habits, or politics based on the color of their skin? I'm sure there is one. . . .

    I am not a fan of the Uncle Tom thing. But I also do not know where he is saying she must be a Democrat. Can a Tea Bagger be a moderate? The campaign she ran here was right along with Trump's playbook. "He gave himself a raise." No, it was a cost of living increase that was automatic. "He will be a socialist supporter of Nancy Pelosi." No he was a moderate that would reach across party lines for consensus.

    Also I think he is accusing Utards of being racist.

    Of course I'm accusing Utards of being racists. Its part of the fabric of this body politic. It is what it is.
    No Sherb, she was never moderate. Not at all. I know using the Uncle Tom term is strong, but I think it applies in this case. When you cast your lot with a bunch of racists (Tea Baggers) how can you not be an Uncle Tom?
    And to further elaborate your claim of moderate, we had a Democratic senate candidate in the primary that could be accurately described as a moderate conservative. There is no moderate politics here after the last re-districting and ouster of Jim Matheson.

    Had to google, but yes. Good news.

    I'm surprised (and happy) that Constitutional Amendment B failed. That was another giveaway to rich people.

    Since mid terms are still not over with automatic recount triggers & recount challenges without all the ballots counted in places in some MAGA propaganda of it being televised yesterday as a big win; so here's another election come & gone like federal sin ChristHitler KKK churchstate thieving US Constitution-old glory-old testament-absentee ballot arsonists of the mid 70's where not being a citizen according to Nazington, Drugs of Christianity supreme swastika up Uranus court by immaculate drug conceptions has sociologically evolved from their second coming thru 9/11 into a national religion of super ego suicidal-homicidal Islam Christiananality pedophilia mentality slavery business of sociopsychopathilogical human farming Catholic Church megalomaniacal patriot act heroes "man is God" lynching enforcement to protect & serve Arab terrorists that threatened POTUS & to nuke Temple Mount before 9/11 by baptizing eyes by urinations under color of law as a more better perfect union one nation under God with equal justice under law survival of the fittest fascists pseudo science pyramid scheme.

    My god. The world some of you live in must be spooky. I don't know how you sleep at night believing that the world is so full of hate.
    I mean just look at these stats!!! This is some scary stuff... I'd wager that more people were attacked over parking spaces...

    Race/Ethnicity/Ancestry bias (Based on Table 1.)

    In 2016, law enforcement agencies reported that 4,229 single-bias hate crime offenses were motivated by race/ethnicity/ancestry. Of these offenses:

    50.2 percent were motivated by anti-Black or African American bias.
    
    20.7 percent stemmed from anti-White bias.
    
    10.6 percent were classified as anti-Hispanic or Latino bias.
    
    4.2 percent were a result of bias against groups of individuals consisting of more than one race (anti-multiple races, group).
    
    3.8 percent were motivated by anti-American Indian or Alaska Native bias.
    
    3.1 percent resulted from anti-Asian bias.
    
    1.3 percent were classified as anti-Arab bias.
    
    0.2 percent (9 offenses) were motivated by bias of anti-Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander.
    
    5.8 percent were the result of an anti-Other Race/Ethnicity/Ancestry bias.

    Fake News: Democrats won the House, but Trump won the election....
    And that's how one Makes America Great Again, with some leftover 9/11 patriot act propaganda farce.
