Democrats Win The House: The Time to Fight is Now


The Democrats won the house in the 2018 midterm elections. Before last night’s election the blue party wasn’t even on the field. They didn’t hit a home run, but they hit a double. They are closer to home than they were for the past 8 years. With results still coming in, The Democrats took 27 seats in the House. They now outnumbers the republicans 221 to 198. There were several positives about this election.

  • Popular vote in the House. Democrats 51% (50,225,460).
  • Popular vote in the House. Republicans 47.3% (46,539,984).
  • Popular vote in the Senate. Democrats 56.6% (44,638,718).
  • Popular vote in the Senate. Republicans 41.7% (32,890,821).
  • 27 of NRA backed candidates lost. That is the most ever.
  • Democrats went 7 for 8 in Senate and Governors races in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. All states Trump won in 2016.
  • Kris Kobach, Mr. “Suppress the Vote” and Dana Rohrabacher “Mr. Russia,” lost.
  • By historical standards this was a “Blue Wave.” Democrats won the popular vote by over 9.2 million votes.
  • More than 100 Women are now in congress.
  • Intelligence Chair: Adam Schiff
  • Judiciary Chair: Jerry Nadler
  • Oversight Chair: Elijah Cummings
  • Financial Services Chair: Maxine Waters

Things we need to work on:

  • Democrats should hire someone to replace ALL voting machines. Paper ballots are the way to go. The Republicans continue to purge voters, continue to suppress the vote and in a lot of cases change the votes after they have been cast. I am supposed to think that racist, Ron Desantis, got 18% of the black women vote? Hell no. Brian Kemp who purged over 400,000 votes is only ahead by 95,000 votes against Stacy Abrams.
  • Make voting a national holiday, so all can vote.
  • Investigate Trump with everything you have. Republicans spent millions of dollars on Hillary Clinton and Benghazi. They had dozens of hearings and found nothing.
  • Democrats must have hearing on Russia, Emoluments Clause, and Trumps tax returns.
  • Adam Schiff must treat the Trump Crime Family like Republicans did Hillary Clinton.
  • Raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour and establish affordable health care for all.
  • Protect medicaid, medicare and our environment.
  • Protect women and the LGBTQ Community and all their rights.

Democrats must not run from progressives but embrace them.

The 2018 mid-terms were a step in the right direction.

Democracy is not dead, it is alive and well but it needs our attention every day.
