Voting straight Republican ticket in both 2016 and this past Tuesday was a necessary obligation, considering the fact that more often than not, Republican politicos generally answer We the People’s trust and confidence with underhanded betrayal (or is this cynical outlook mine only?). Like a faucet drip in need of a new ‘O’ ring washer, Republican RINOs lost the house yet again because they failed to represent their constituency (ie US) while lying about upholding their own policies and values.
Drip; drip; drip…
The betrayal is personified by Paul Ryan and to some extent, Mitch McConnell, both of whose alliances to the Chinese are deeply disturbing. Choosing to ignore American voters while pandering to billionaire globalists isn’t exactly the route to be taking, especially in the middle of a crucial midterm election with unprecedented expectations. Thankfully however, president Trump made their losses less devastating.
With arguably the best economy since Ronald Wilson Reagan, Republicans still lost multiples of seats in the House, and even most of the ones they won in both chambers were razor thin.
Paul Ryan established his national reputation as a budget wonk during the disastrous Obama years. But, as House Speaker, Ryan’s control of the budget was NOWHERE to be seen. No constraints, no reduction, just increased spending and government expansion.
A failure of epic proportions.
Like the dripping faucet metaphor, what we have learned is that no matter how great the economy, it no longer matters in elections. The well-being of the country and its citizens is no longer the metric that decides votes. For some weird reason, it’s no longer the economy stupid.
So, other than the faucet drip of uncertainty, what else plagues the electorate within these midterms?
Peter Skurkiss and his opener in American Thinker ‘Democrats: You can’t always get what you want’…
Yes, we conservatives did not get what we wanted — complete control of Congress. But we got what we needed, an increased Republican majority in the Senate. And by the way, apart from the numbers, the incoming Senate will be of a higher quality. It will be significantly more conservative and more aligned with President Trump’s MAGA agenda now that RINO ankle-biters the like of John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Bob Corker have sailed off to the sunset. This bodes well for, among other things, upcoming judicial appointments in the next two years.
As for the House: the conventional wisdom, even from the conservative punditry, has it that the losses in there were mild when measured by historical standards for midterm elections. This is absolutely true. But still the loss stings given the amazing economic growth the U.S. has experienced in the past two years. This is evidenced by rising wages, record low unemployment, high level of consumer optimism, and a soaring stock market.
One has to wonder what in the blazes were the people who voted Democratic thinking to risk this economy? And I don’t mean the radicals and bitter, hardcore Democrats. These people hate anything good that is ushered in under Republican leadership. They even hated it when Ronald Reagan defeated the USSR. Rather, I mean the run-of-the-mill Democratic voter. My only explanation is that so many are still unfortunately entrapped in the media bubble that they have been brainwashed to instincts vote Democrat. This helps explain how radical Democrats like Andrew Gillum (Florida), Kyrsten Sinema (Arizona), Stacey Abrams (Georgia), and Beto O’Rourke (Texas) came frighteningly close to winning.

Paul Ryan became one of the leaders of the ‘Never Trumper’ resistance team, where he and his fellow RINOs stood with the most rabid DemoMarxists and the Deep State Big Fake News Media, doing everything in their power to destroy Trump. Hard to believe, but we witnessed it with our very own eyes.
Using the myopic faucet drip metaphor again, they were never going to let Trump have a ‘win’ on any of his agendas – all of which We the People supported and voted for.
One could also emphatically declare that Ryan is, and has been, totally responsible for Wisconsin ‘going up in flames’ in losing all the top races to DemoMarxists, having managed to lose the house, and advance little in return. A perfect example of the stupid faucet drip party in action.
President Trump is totally in the process of re-branding the Republican party, making it attractive again. If I were Mitch McConnell for instance, I would invite Pelosi over for coffee and remind her that the Senate can play the investigative game all day long.
Obama and his cronies seem ripe for prosecution on so many fronts. That faucet drip is still drip, drip, dripping…
Time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump – MAGA!
