It's all a stock simulation. See. I purchased shares it was with specific prices. As time goes along those can go up or down based on the bidding, and I can sell them at any point.

So if the Dems aren't going to win why start a post about it? Why mention it at all? Are you worried about something?

Why you blindly support these idiots is beyond me.
Boy are YOU in for a big surprise!

We gained seats in both houses in 2016 and Hillary did get 3 million more votes than Chump. Chumpy got super lucky.

But lets face it, the dems did not get control of either house and frankly given we did not, perhaps you guys having all 3 is a win for us dems.

If hillary won it would have been 4 to 8 years of GOP lying about Obamacare, and blocking her from picking a SCOTUS...

at least this way the GOP have all the blame for what they are doing. As they wreck the country they will be held responsible.
Shhhhhh...for god's sake let them keep living in their denial. It's going to be so much more entertaining for us in this forum come November next year! Just let them be. Remember...PATIENCE!

As metro Atlanta continues to grow and dominate the state, it is possible that it could become the next Florida. Metro Atlanta is very liberal and Democratic. The only reason the state remains red is because rural Georgia is so red. The balance could very well tip. Virginia used to be a solidly red state.

I don't know whom it is you are referring to when you yammer about being "racist and vile without any factual basis". You make no sense.
Even thought I dont do it


Trumpette =/= calling someone an intentional racial epithet.

Quick, which party has 10 of their Senators up for election in which their state voted for our Great President in contrast to their party... and the party almost certain to lose 6-10 more seats in 2018?
in 2010, 2014, and 2016, Republicans increased their power.

in 2012 and 2013, Democrats increased their numbers in state houses, state senates, governorship, US house, US senate.

But lets not stray away from the actual argument, which is about who the people support. Winning the popular vote indeed shows more people support Democrats than Republicans.

Thank you for not doing that unlike all the other Hillary supporters who do it day in and day out, like this one. Once you start justifying one, it is a downward spiral and don't be surprised of BO is compared to a lower species. I don't like that too.

Another thing that galls me is the popular vote. It had no meaning and never will, unless the laws change. So bring it up time and again to justify Hillary's performance has no value. Trump had a overwhelming majority of the electoral vote and that is the game they played for and all that mattered. If she had also played the same game maybe she would have come close and maybe even won it. But winning big in NY, California or Texas does not make you a president. The in between states matter.

I don't want the democrats to die. If they become more main stream and get rid of wackos like Maxine Waters maybe they can be a force again. The first thing is to bury the past and get Hillary out of the way and to let the young fresh blood rise. The less we hear of Hillary whining and the more we hear from Gabbard and Webb, the more the people will see Democratic party as a true alternative nationwide.
