Lord I Pray we take back the House. The problem is; spineless Repubs don't have the balls to govern. They truly are pussies. Trump has given them the blueprint on how pushback is done, but they are truly whimps.

Block_Helen 259 points ago +260 / -1

My thinking is: if Trump wins, and especially if he wins decisively, we will flip the House back and hold the Senate (maybe even pick up a seat or two). Him being on the top of the ticket almost ensures straight Republican voting.

Even though we are righteously mad at much of the GOP in Congress, we also know that we have to get back the House and keep the Senate or they'll impeach Trump and convict and remove him this time and our Trump vote will have been in vain.

Basically if we lose the Senate and don't flip the House, Trump is going to be removed even if he wins the WH.

VOTE STRAIGHT REPUBLICAN TICKET

My point (although I wasn't clear) is always vote Republican. We need both Houses of Congress, you are right. I am just always amazed at how spinless the Republicans are at leading the county when they have the ball.

The time to replace RINOs with MAGA conservatives is during the primaries. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. In the general you MUST vote straight Republican.

And Mike Lee can't be trusted on immigration. Mormon Mafia wants that cheap labor for their farm operations, so Mike delivers.

It's worse than that. The new Mormon orthodoxy is that they need to bring in millions of immigrants, because it's so much easier to convert them here.

He just endorsed him because he knew the other guy couldn't win. He'd rather only support people he thinks have a decent shot at it. He knew the machine in Utah had Romney locked in.

This is what I keep trying to tell people. You have to replace the RINOs in the primaries, much like the Tea Party did. Once it's a choice between gutless R's and D's, you have to vote for the R. Reason being.... not a single Republican, RINO or not voted for ObamaCare. And, that should tell you all you need to know.

We can't underestimate Trump's ability to lead. He was able to accomplish things in the Senate by getting McConnell and Graham to do things they normally won't do. Even if a republican is only 50-50 reliable, any democrat is guaranteed to be 100% unreliable.

20KAG20 45 points ago +48 / -3

It’s crazy, I’m a moderate Republican. In 2012-2015 I worked with the local Dems to help get some elected. They were moderates too and good people. Then 2016 happened and I bailed on all Dems because the party is toxic.

Now I’m seeing some of the same moderate Dems I helped go straight Marxism. It’s fucking crazy. They were rationale people 7 years ago. What the fuck.

Vote straight red. Dems are literally insane.

24
Strongocho 24 points ago +26 / -2

I did the same. I was a "default democrat", but still considered myself to be towards the middle. I voted for Obama his first term, then sat out his second election because I felt betrayed by Obama but could still not stomach even considering voting Republican after being indoctrinated by public schools for 12 years. In 2016 I sat out the vote again because I knew Hilary was evil, but I thought Trump was a clown. Well, Trump has proven himself to me and earned my vote in 2020 (first time ever voting Republican), and the Democrats have gone so far off the deep end I think I will never support them again.

16
20KAG20 16 points ago +18 / -2

Sounds about right. What broke me was when the Dems started calling everyone that supported Trump Nazis, racists, and sexists. Just couldn’t imagine thinking like that. Blows my mind they are still doing it today.

I would give a tooth to know how many people like you are out there - new Trump voters.

Strongocho 5 points ago +6 / -1

I would bet Trump has more cross party voters than any candidate ever. His base is pretty much first time voters and democrat expats.

3
Block_Helen 3 points ago +4 / -1

I agree he has more crossover voters. I'm really curious about the number of people in 2020 who voted against him or didn't vote in 2016 and are now voting for him.

Everquest4Life 4 points ago +4 / -0

If Trump’s total votes aren’t at least 20% higher than 2016 there is some major fuckery going on.

I never underestimate the pure evil of the Dems, so until we all march to the polls it’ll be unknown. I will crawl through glass to vote Trump, smiling along the way.

This time, I feel like the DNC has been going so far off the deep end for so long that it's "breaking the conditioning" all over the place, in ways that the Democrat pollsters can't even see, but which are visible as small blips popping onto the cultural radar for a few seconds before being passed over for the latest BLM protest or DNC politician's rant.

A town of people kicking Antifa out here.
Black natives from Chicago and Baltimore thanking Trump for his help there.
Lifelong Democrats writing articles about how much nicer/better the crowds are at Trump rallies compared to their Democrat counterparts one day.
Poor people in New York City attacking DeBlasio for defunding police the next.

Depending on how both sides play their cards (if the DNC even HAS any cards LEFT to play), this could be a massive landslide like 1972 Nixon or 1984 Reagan (with California, New York, and Hawaii being the 3 hardest states to flip).

I know some got out of politics completely but I haven’t kept up with them. There’s a few that are still Dem that might vote Trump but won’t tell anyone. And then there’s the ones that are bat shit insane.

None of them have switched Republican or at the very least denounced anything about the Dem party.

Inspector_Cheez 17 points ago +18 / -1

Remember: Most of the most obstinate RINOs, with the exception of Romney and Murkowski, are now out of Congress, the biggest ones being Paul Ryan, McCain, and Corker.

Kevin McCarthy would probably become Speaker, but the good news there is that McCarthy is very susceptible to pressure from President Trump and would likely be eager to pass as many Trump bills as possible.

So if the Republicans win control Congress, Trump will be in the driver's seat.

Block_Helen 5 points ago +7 / -2

I hope so. They didn't cooperate the first time around. Graham can be a PITA too but he won't be as powerful without those other pricks.

aaafirefly123 0 points ago +1 / -1

Isn’t Murkowski a senator from Massachusetts? If so I can forgive his cuckness if it means keeping his seat from the Democrats. He has the excuse of having a very lefty base.

There will never be a conservative Republican senator representing Massachusetts, so the best we can settle for there are RINOs.

But at the very least Murkowski votes along party lines when it mattered the most (Kavenaugh & Impeachment).

Romney has no excuse, he represents one of the most reddest states in the Union, he has literally no reason to be such a RINO except for the fact that he is in on the corruption and agrees with it.

CannonballJunior 4 points ago +4 / -0

Murkowski is a she (Lisa) and is from the red state of Alaska.

aaafirefly123 1 point ago +2 / -1

Then she has no excuse.

I think I was thinking about Collins. He is the one from the red state, and thus is the one I am ok with being anti-Trump to an extent.

As long as he votes along party lines when we need it the most.

CannonballJunior 3 points ago +3 / -0 (edited)

Collins is also a she (Susan) and is from Maine, which is arguably a purple state (and Trump won one electoral vote from Maine in 2016).

stevejobs871 8 points ago +9 / -1

Keep in mind convict + remove is very difficult to do. You need 67%. Out of the 3 impeached presidents, none have ever been removed (not even Andrew Johnson, and basically all of Congress hated his ass and the Republicans had 70% in both houses). No party has gotten a 2/3 supermajority in the Senate since the 60s, and I don't anticipate that happening now. Even with Obama on the ticket, Dems only got 58 seats in '08, not even enough for a filibuster-proof Senate. They had to have a couple Republicans to pass stuff like Obamacare even back then.

That is true. But it is not worth the risk considering how limp the GOP has been to date. We have to get back Congress if there is to be any chance of MAGA.

BobDobalina 3 points ago +3 / -0

The long game for the dems is this: Get a majority in the Senate, and then run fake polls long enough that they try to suppress the support of the President enough that it gives cover to the RINOS to vote wtih the democrats to get rid of him.

Unfortunately for them, the American People stepped up and stood in the Gap for President Trump, they will not be able to oust him without all out civil war.

jcd_007 3 points ago +4 / -1

I agree on voting straight GOP, but even if the Dems had both houses impeachment and removal is almost impossible as it takes a 2/3rds vote to convict. However losing the senate would mean that judicial confirmations would grind to a halt, and we absolutely cannot have that happen.

Block_Helen 4 points ago +5 / -1

Beyond just our confirmations, it would mean that RBG would retire instantly and be replaced by a liberal. And probably Breyer too.

2
BobDobalina 2 points ago +2 / -0

If they had the house and senate, they'd try to get enough RINO's to vote against the President, we the People though would not allow that to happen because we still support the President. If they removed him in that way, it would cause a civil war.

I'm American and this took me a minute as well. It's because we use the terms "Congressman" and "Congresswoman" to describe members of the House of Representatives and "Senator" to describe a member of the Senate. So "Congress" sometimes becomes conflated with the House of Representatives only.

Not all states today became states at the same time.

Congressional seats are elected for 2 year terms, but if one state founded in 1840 and the next is 1841 than their 2 year time frames are different

Same with senators, elected for 6 year terms, but ita all staggered depending on when the state was founded.

435 of those are the House. They are up every two years. Retire enough Democrats and Pelosi loses the speakership (again).

Let's do it, even just so their stupid theory of having the Speaker of the House become President is suddenly dropped. If they keep it up afterwards, you know the Republican speaker is a total RINO.

Edit: For anyone who doesn't know what theory I'm talking about, Democrats are floating the idea that Trump will not leave office after losing or the results of the election will not be clear by inauguration day. They claim the de facto President would be the Speaker of the House.

It would be speaker of the NEW House, not this one. So assuming that Republicans gain back a majority in the House, it could be someone else.

The minority leader is Kevin McCarthy at the moment. But we get to pick new ones, so thats semi inconsequential.

Sadly, some of these kuks run unopposed, so there is no other choice or let it go to the dems, which is NOT an option. Would be nice to get rid of the kuks and have some good options!

Part of me wants to just go somewhere that they always run unopposed and run. But I don't want a target on my back by the evil left either.

Snipthetipandsip 7 points ago +8 / -1

The reason they run unopposed is because the district is staunch blue. Happens with republicans in certain areas too. You wouldn't have a chance of winning as a repub because the constituents are die hard liberals. You could run as a dem win a primary, then switch parties after you won. Not sure how that would play out. Probably a soros backed recall or some fuckery.

why are the dems not an option if the only other choice is the incumbent?

Block_Helen 11 points ago +12 / -1

If they get the Senate and hold the House there will be no Trump second term, even if he wins the election. They'll have him out of there within six months.

Then again, if Trump wins, I don't think they'll get the Senate. He'll drag a TON of GOP candidates with him.

Can you imagine if Republicans got a supermajority in both the house and senate? I know it has almost no chance of happening, but that would be amazing.

PraiseBeToScience 10 points ago +11 / -1

Another Paul Ryan would be appointed and literally nothing would be done for 2 years until they lost it.

Hell they probably would try to impeach Trump.

Paul Ryan is a fucking disgrace and I hope when he meets his end, he's thrown in an unmarked pauper's grave.

Im_Not_Rattled 8 points ago +9 / -1

There's been times before, Republicans had control of both house and senate and did nothing with it. So used to being on the defensive, apparently, they remained that way and let the Dems walk all over them. We really need term limits for congress to minimize the do-nothing fat-cats taking up space so we can hopefully get some people in position to actually start representing the people who elected them.

While I appreciate the spirit, I really do, this is only half the struggle. Whatever happens in DC, it is the local LEOs and DAs that are refusing to arrest and charge antifa and BLM rioters. It is the same LEOs and DAs that arrest and prosecute ordinary citizens for defending themselves. It is the state-level Judges that give slap-on-the-wrist sentences to murderers.

Aiming for taking back the Federal Government is great and necessary. We have to remember to take the elections locally and on the state level too. In the immortal words of Leonard Cohen: "first we take [Washington DC] then we take the world!"

That's why people shouldn't just focus on them stealing the presidency. If they can fraud their way into turning a state blue, that's the end of that state.

This is the real reason for the mass hysteria from democrats and the overwhelming agenda-pushing. Trump’s popularity would give him total control of the government... they can’t let that happen... they would experience real accountability.

Agree but we have to pick candidates who will win, unless we want Trump to be impeached and removed. Because if they hold the House and flip the Senate, that's what WILL happen.

VOTE STRAIGHT REPUBLICAN TICKET NO MATTER WHAT

Trust me, there are people on my ticket that i wish werent there, but no MAGA candidate stepped up. So far its better than not having the seat at all.

WE CANT RISK IT.

We know there is a vast majority of people here that are going to vote for Trump. Vote straight red. Do it. Lets take back the HOUSE.

I'd say 470 need to be moved to other people.
