Blue or Red Wave?

Post by cassowary » Sun Nov 04, 2018 5:36 pm

Any predictions for Tuesday?

Most of the polls show Republicans losing the House. But I am going out on a limb and predict they barely keep control. That’s because Trump’s supporters are lining up for hours to hear him speak. He is filling stadiums while Democrat hard hitters like oBUMa can’t fill my backyard.

Also the economy is booming. Why put that at risk?

Probably not a wave either way. Healthy Senate pickup for the GOP, hopefully we keep the House. I predict we will, but it could be very close.

I don't understand why you say that when Republican policies have brought prosperity, low unemployment etc. To me, it is the Blue Tide of depression vs Red wave of prosperity.

Look at what Democrats want:

1)Open borders. This is ridiculous. There is a maximum number of people the country can absorb. The government should decide how many immigrants and what kind can come in. You should be taking in well educated and higher income people so as not to put a strain on the treasury.

2)Socialism - That's the Bernie Sanders crowd. Do you want to become another Venezuela?

3)Mobs - Antifa, BLM - all these are Democrat supporters. We want Jobs not Mobs. That's how Hitler got into power. Antifa is the modern equivalent of his Brown Shirts.

Personally I really would not mind if the Dems did win in a way. I would pay good money to see them try to take Grandma's gun away.
