• Republican Youngkin Wins In Virginia!

    From El Castor@21:1/5 to All on Tue Nov 2 23:14:59 2021
    Without significant Democrat support Youngkin could not have won in a
    state that Biden took by 10%. Oh and the Minneapolis proposal to
    dismantle the police department was defeated. Could it be that the
    voters are fed up with the left wing crap being rammed down their
    throats?

    It's the economy: inflation, supply shortages and the job market, all
    being driven by the lingering pandemic.

    That may be part of it, but it's also an open border, Afghanistan,
    labeling parents who oppose CRT/1619 domestic terrorists, the prospect
    of $450K+ to migrant parents and children, trillions in spending bills
    that Pelosi refuses to allow the CBO to evaluate, destruction of US
    energy independence and the XL pipeline, resulting in lost jobs, high
    energy prices, and ironically demands that the Middle East produce
    more oil and charge less. And then, with or without Minneapolis,
    Democrat controlled cities are swept with crime, demands to defund the
    police, and tearing down of the statues of our founders.

    I know you would disagree, but it seems to me, and apparently many
    voters, including some in your Party, that the extreme Left is running
    the show in the White House and has plans for us that radically differ
    from the ideals of our Constitution and are perhaps more in line with
    those of Karl Marx and European Socialism.

    Your viewpoint is held only by a subset of those who voted against Biden
