Losing heathcare wasn't a big enough issue for voters to flip the Senate. I just don't get it.

The Senate's rural skew is what kept Black people from being able to just walk up to a polling station and vote without being frat-hazed by a poll watcher just to be given a ballot.

I was in the acceptance phase an hour after RGB died. The idea a sitting president cant fill a seat in an election year is silly and it doesn't matter if McConnell is being hypocritical about it.

Key here is revenge. The GOP won’t hold power forever. It always swings back. When the pendulum swings, then you do  as you please and move forward with a  progressive agenda. And when they ask why? Respond “because we can, bitch.”

As a moderate I'm usually not in favor of such tactics but this is the last straw for me. The dems in the Senate needs to make sure everyone knows there is no coming back from this. I doubt they are strong enough to do what needs to be done. Instead they are going wax poetically about return to normalcy, fairness, and decorum while the GOP continues to play a different game. Time for the Dems to grow up.

I thought Obama should have been able to fill Scalia seat when he passed in 2016. A president does it stop being president at the beginning of an election cycle, especially one that takes as long as it does in the United States. I feel the same way about Trump. He is president and there is a vacancy on the courts. Therefore, he should be able to fill the seat just as Obama should have been able to fill the seat. But because the Republicans decided to create some new rule out of thin air, I feel they should be consistent. Since it is clear they are not going to be Consistent, fuck him, and let’s beat them at their own game. Fuck all Republicans.

Here are the 29 times this scenario has happened before. This is not some new event and out of order as the Dems currently cry.
