    There was a light voter turnout and if more Republicans and gun owners got off their behinds things could be different. We got what we paid for. The Republican Party here is dominated by Mitt Romney types.

    More Democrats voted in national elections in 2016. I am not sure where you are going with this one, sir. :)

    So does Florida.

    The country will be gone January, 2025, at the latest. All good things must come to an end.

    In the next five years, work hard. Make as much money as you can. Buy guns, if you have not yet. Buy ammo. Not for the coming 'revolution' which will not happen, but simply because 6, 7 years from now, it will be much harder to do so. If you can, move to a state that will hold out a little longer than the others.

    Continue to be politically active, at least at your local level. There is value, if only to your own sense of well-being, in fighting the good fight, even knowing the cause ultimately is lost.

    At the national level, once Trump is gone, the GOP is going to be controlled by the RINOs and the party will be just Democrat Lite. The country will spiral in pretty quick after that.

    Governor Blackface and his Yankee Carpetbaggers bring disgrace to the Confederacy and the Army of Northern VA.

    The redistricting insured that yesterday would happen. Yes Virginia voted for Obama and Hillary but i think that is because more dems voted not because there are more dems.

    Anecdotal reference from someone I talked to, but he said only about 30 percent of the Virginia electorate turned out to vote yesterday.

    Not that I want to encourage negative forces -- but maybe we need something like a state-wide "assault weapon" and/or high-cap magazine ban to awaken the "sleeping giant" of conservatives and get them off their hands... :dunno:

    Only 50% of the population votes
    26% of the 50% vote Democrat

    I'll bet a million dollars that the folks that scream the loudest when Trump loses didn't vote.

    And I give TX another election cycle. We just had a Mayor's race here and the most corrupt, lazy, communist, racist won.

    The brown wave turned up this time. Republicans are dropping like flies. The sooner we face the facts the sooner we prepare for the onslaught.

    This also means that all of the electoral college votes go to the Communists in 2020 or at the latest 2024.

    Va. has always been Democrat controlled. I lived there in the 80 and 90s all Democrat all the time. Nothing new here.

    If I've said it once, I've said it a million times. There is no stopping the march to a dystopian future. The country has already been transformed, it's just that many are too blind or too stupid to see it. The Democrap's WILL take over all 3 branches of government, whether it be 2020 or 2024. This site will likely disappear under anti-gun legislation at some point, after the great gun confiscation effort that awaits us all.

    That changed in the 90s when we saw a major shift to all the rural counties and cities voting R. This is the first time in over 20 years that the Ds have had control of the legislature.

    Be careful what you wish for.

    Once an AWB is passed, it may never be repealed or overturned in court.

    We might be stuck with it forever.

    So you are chasing out Governor Klansman and Lt. Gov. Rapist?

    The difference is, back in the 60s/70s/80s some of those Democrats were moderate or even somewhat conservative.


    Today, all the Democrats are full-blown Marxists.
