    I’m going to make a prediction right here. After the mid-term elections in 2018, I want any1 who has read this to come back here and prove me either right or wrong. In 2010, thanks mostly to the Tea-Party movement, the Republican Party won 63 seats in the House and 6 seats in the Senate. This was a significant loss for Democrats, especially considering that they lost a Senate seat in Blue State Massachusetts after a special election there (Ted Kennedy died). Regardless of how you felt about him/his decisions, President Obama worked hard for the bailouts and ObamaCare in his 1st 2 years, but his Party lost big time despite these successes, and in part due to the opposition against him despite having decent approval ratings. After this special election in Red State Alabama where a Democrat (narrowly) won, I think history is about to repeat itself in 2018’s midterms, but with Democratic victories. Like 2010, there is a huge opposition/resistance movement against President Trump/corrupt Republican politicians who don’t care about working/middle-class Americans who felt they were played back in 2016. However, unlike in 2010, President Trump has no real legislative accomplishments to brag to his voters/the Republicans’ policies are proven to be hurtful for average Americans (unlike the lies about Obama’s policies). All that said here’s my predication: come the 2018 midterms, best case scenario for Republicans-they only loose about 40 seats, best case scenario for Democrats-they gain anywhere from 70-85 seats, but my prediction Democrats win about 60 seats. However, this will only work if the Democrats get strong/better messaging out there beyond just being against President Trump, the Republicans continue to fail to pass anything legislatively, President Trump continues to divide people on Twitter and fails to meet his campaign promises, and more Progressives have a fighting chance on the Democratic side. What do you guys think?

    The Founding Fathers wanted America to be a secular nation that separated church and state/be a nation that did not favor any religion over any other. A lesser known reason why we wanted to break away from Great Britain was that the British monarch was very religious/their government persecuted people based on their religion (Mayflower any1?). Many of the Founders were also not Christian or at least feared that if America was a “Christian Nation” (which we aren’t) that persecuted based on religion we would be no better than the King. As such, they wrote in the 1st Amendment that any1 can practice (or not practice) any religion in America as a basic human right. And there is a Christian version of Sharia Law; it’s when the federal government forced Natives and Africans to convert to Christianity/attend schools to “embrace civilization” or be executed. Allowing more Temples, Mosques, or Synagogues does not make America any of a “Christian Nation” because we never were considered as such, and if you are a non-Christian born in America your rights are the same as a Christian who was born here.

      Absolutely. And one of the depraved things about Roy Moore is his apparent bastardization of Baptist Christian values. Roger Williams founded Rhode Island as a haven of religious freedom largely due to his experience as a Baptist in MA. During the 19th and 20th centuries, Baptists practiced sticking up for the poor and disenfranchised, visited prisoners, and espoused the principle of the separation between church and state. Roy Moore claims to be a Baptist but he is anything but in his actions. Unfortunately, he is a lot like a large number of evangelicals in that regard, minus the Baptist and child molestation parts.

      The ‘vision’ of Eisenhower when he stoked the flames of religious narcissism with ‘In God We Trust’?

  7. Toad Jiang says:

    It’s actually pretty scary and sad that despite all of the allegations, despite he is basically just a white ISIS member, Roy Moore still managed to win in a landslide among white folks, 67% of white voters (72% of white men and 63% of white women) voted for this alleged pedop! If it were not for black voters especially black women, Roy Moore would have won with ease.

  8. Kitty Jauregui-Hansen says:

    apparently white women care more about horses than they care about themselves and black people

    • Teresa R says:

      @Legend I never said “Shut up” to anyone at all. I didn’t even MENTION white people, yet you literally invented a sentence from scratch and used “quotations” to quote me in a lie, and EVERYONE who reads this can see it. Good job, Faux news. You may be left and trying to agree with me (despite somehow changing my entire comment), but my “Thank you” to to people of Alabama can stand for itself without you completely rewriting it. Speak for yourself, and stop putting your invented sentences into my mouth. But otherwise, I agree with the rest of your comment. 🙂

      Nice race bait, that is what Left needs, race baiting and purity tests!!

      Left is losing because people like you, HuffPost, Salon, TYT, DemNow, professional racists and race baiters on the Left.

      Apparently black people only come out to vote sometimes..

  9. Jason Blade says:

    Bannon is a political genius. Thanks to his contributions, a Democrat was elected in Alabama. Let’s hope Steve Bannon continue this winning strategy for a Blue Wave in 2018!

    EVEN JESUS didn’t want MOORE in the US Senate.

  11. Fuck You says:

    Roy Moore won the election if you deduct the MILLIONS of underage girls who voted against him illegally yesterday in Alabama. — Donald Trump

  12. Breanna Boyer says:

    The face the dude makes when Jake is teaching him American law is one of my favorite things to come out of 2017 he looks just like a gaping fish.

  13. ASMRyouVEGANyet? says:

    I’m glad other people made it public that Roy Moore is cruel to Sassy. It’d be great if she has a better person to take care of her. He probably beats her. She deserves better. Much better.

  14. NO-ORWELLIAN Dystopia says:

    Hey there Alabama’s black women, Thank you for coming out and making Alabama amazing.

  15. John Halket says:

    The world owes a great debt to those brave victims of Roy Moore who came forward and risked so much.
    Similarly, well done to the republican minded voters in Alabama who put country and decency before narrow political tribalism.

  16. Tim Chavez says:

    To the African American women and men of Alabama, the rest of the country thanks you! So now it is our responsibility to advocate for policy that helps the African American community.

      Do you think they just realized they can elect one of their own if Dougie doesn’t represent them?Wonder if any congressional districts are up next year?

    “Alabama Republicans believe in carrying every pregnant pause to full term.” Love that line.
    You totally nailed it with this, Sam! Cheers from Toronto. 🙂

    No matter how many times I see the Ted Crockett segment, it just doesn’t get old. And he has been elected 3 times!

    That Jake Tapper interview made my night 🤣

  20. Tom Haflinger says:

    Shout-out to the devout Republican voters in Alabama who stayed home on Tuesday because they couldn’t stomach voting for Moore. I don’t agree with your politics, but abandoning party lines to follow your conscience is no easy task with a Senate as closely balanced as this one. Kudos for having the strength of character to do the right thing. Naturally, the lion’s share of credit goes to the women who shared their trauma and the people who voted for Jones, but I suspect there was also some groundbreaking abstention in this election, and that should be recognized as well.

    And Mr. Moore, the People have spoken. Please, for once, learn to take “no” for an answer.

    • valgehiir says:

      Yes, that is my point, had black voters come out in similar numbers in Nov 2016, as they did for Doug Jones, we wouldn’t have Trump in WH.
      Do you really not know how low the black turn out was in 2016? Yes, white men and women put Trump in WH, but if black voters had bothered to vote in similar percentage as white voters (around 40% of eligible voters) Trump would not be Pres. You know, we are all happy that blacks came out and voted in Alabama on Tuesday, how about they do the same every important elections. Am I being disingenuous again? Rasict perhaps? A bigot?

    • valgehiir says:

      Kyle Douglas, exactly! Moore lost only by 1.5 percent, had Republicans come out and vote down party line, Moore would have won in landslide. Thnfully the stayed home, for Rs in Alabama that is a huge sacrifice, and I’m happy their humanity trumped their tribalism, it almost never happens.

    • djuanOD says:

      ofc you are being disingenuous as more impactfully had all the white voters who stayed home, or voted for a 3rd party candidate, or wrote-in, voted for Hillary then a we would have her in instead. if you actually look at the breakdown of those who actually voted, you cannot blame black voters. Alabama as a state has been deep red for the past 25 years and looking at a minority while glossing over a majority is disingenuous indeed. remember 65% population > 13% population by a very large margin.

    • valgehiir says:

      djuanOD, is it possible that your tribalism affects you to the degree where you can not think rationally? You are denying facts and numbers. Have you looked at Nov 2016 black turnout numbers? Do you know what percentage of black eligible voters cast their vote in 2016?

    • djuanOD says:

      tribalism? you do realize that that does not apply to me in this instance, right? and if anyone here is being tribal it’s you as the valid points i raised you are choosing to ignore just because they fly in the face of w/e narrative you are trying to push. was there a reduction in the amount of black voters in the 2016 election? yes. could the black vote have swung the results in Clinton’s favor? in 3 pivotal Northern states (MI, OH, WI), maybe. but you were talking about black votes in the South where Clinton lost by double digit percentages, so even with 100% of the black vote she still would have lost. and again you fail to realize that the white vote overwhelmingly lost Clinton the election.

      i suggest that the next time you want to critique something put it in context and do not make it seem as though everything hinges on the black vote for Democrats as though other parties are not at fault either (Bernie or Bust folks, Green party voters, etc) even though the other parties would have a greater impact.
