What Is It About Mid Term Elections

 What is it about mid-term elections that makes people not vote?  Or rather not enough people voting?  Everybody I know at least said that they voted...Not sure if they did or not...But it obviously wasn't enough...

The Republicans who have an abysmal record miraculously managed to pull a snow job on the American People again...and convince enough people to vote for them...

Just what do the American people think they are going to get?

Republicans took the Senate majority in a commanding sweep on Tuesday, winning nearly every contested race across the country, gaining governor's mansions and adding to their majority in the House of Representatives. For weeks, pundits had debated the semantics of what would constitute a "wave" election, but when it came, it was unmistakable.

Republicans unseated Democratic incumbents in Senate races in Arkansas, North Carolina, and Colorado, and were leading in Alaska early Wednesday. They easily held onto GOP-controlled seats in Georgia, Kansas, and Kentucky. In New Hampshire, Democrat Jeanne Shaheen barely held on against Republican Scott Brown. In one of the night's biggest surprises, Virginia Senator Mark Warner, who was thought to be safe, was up only half a point over his Republican challenger early Wednesday. The Louisiana election, in which Democrat Mary Landrieu finished slightly ahead of her Republican challenger, Bill Cassidy, was set to go to a December runoff, which Cassidy is favored to win.

Why did this happen?

It happened because we  are like sheep...We live by the soundbite...We don't read, we don't investigate..We just believe what we hear on the internet,in the media... at the barber shop in the bedroom...
President Obama 's administration has given Health Care to millions who didn't have it before...It's working..So now the Republicans have stopped calling it Obamacare and call it The Affordable care act and are trying to act like it was because of them....

Gas is down to close to three dollars a gallon...Unemployment has dropped to 2007 levels...The Economy is actually improving and yet...President Obama's popularity is at an all time low...If you believe the pundits and the pollsters.....Remember the question I asked yesterday...Did they poll you?? Did they question you or anybody you know?? But you saw on the Television news that his popularity has dropped and that a Republican tidal wave was coming so you decided...Well, they look like they got this on lock,so I aint gonna vote...You decided that before you went to the ballot box...and they KNEW all they had to do was tell you they were going to win and you and most people were going to act accordingly...


I don't know what else I can say....I don't know if anything I write here even makes a difference...At this point...I'm just venting....I'm just writing now the same things I wrote in 2008,In 2009 and in 2010...Same thing happened..Writing this blog is a waste of time..Few people see it...and if they do...It hasn't changed a thing...

There was however one bright spot last night...In my home state of Pennsylvania...
Pennsylvania's abysmally unpopular Republican governor, Tom Corbett, was defeated by Tom Wolfe...

Republicans took over governor's mansions in Arkansas, Illinois, Maryland, and Massachusetts, and were leading in Connecticut, and Colorado. Controversial Republican incumbents Scott Walker (Wisconsin), Rick Snyder (Michigan), Sam Brownback (Kansas), Paul LePage (Maine), Nathan Deal (Georgia), and Rick Scott (Florida), all of whom had appeared vulnerable in pre-election polls, all appeared to hold on to win reelection.

Ebullient Republicans, many of whom had run relentlessly one-note campaigns focused on the so called  unpopular president, touted the results as a rejection of President Obama and Democratic policies. "This race wasn't about me or my opponent," Mitch McConnell, the Kentucky senator who easily won reelection and stands to become the new majority leader, told a ballroom full of supporters here. "It was about a government people no longer trust."  I have never trusted him...

Laugh now...but I do know one thing...People with too much power can never control themselves...But how much do we have to suffer before they tear their own asses as My grandmother used to say!

Cousin, I'm with you in not comprehending the mind of American voters. How could they vote for the people who would deny them healthcare, food, decent housing? The republicans that won all voted for the sequester. They reduced food quality checks and food stamp allotments for families. They reduced the healthcare available for veterans and saw the closing of hospitals across the rural south. And what??? the republicans win??!!?? I'm perplexed.
Joan Walsh wrote a book 2 years ago titled "What's the matter with white people?" They consistently vote against their own interest just to keep others down. Since we have a black president, I think they believe they can knock him and his family down. (What a joke. Harvard educated lawyers?? downed by dopes?? Not likely, but they will not relent. Obama is black and they can't stand it.
Well, trouble don't last always is another of our grandmother's sayings. The Lord always provides. Let's stay faithful.

P.S. Thanks for ignoring your idiot "anonymous." Your restraint demonstrates your level of maturity. Great day, the righteous marching!!
