Re: Georgia's 6th - Ossof v. Handel.

He had a D by his name several times, I assume, so that's like 20 points off for him

She did get a couple of good digs in at the press.

Re: Georgia's 6th - Ossof v. Handel.

Wow. Obviously I didn't watch. WTF?

I was about to tell einbert that digs at the press are so 2016. This is Trump's America and we beat them up now.

This is what it's come down to, and will keep getting worse. These actions perpetuate each other. Normal education and resistance beget stronger and more impactive means of combating them. Republicans laugh and Dems vote against this nonsense. But votes may or may not count too much longer because Russia. That, and Trump really hates taking losses. One would think he'd be used to it by now.

Thought defending planned parenthood a lot on that one Q from the susan komen stuff to handel was a huge huge mistake. He got killed on that Q despite handel bumbling around. People are far more motivated to vote against that than for.

People usually don't remember much of what's said in these; so if that's the thing that stuck with people then he got killed in the debate.

Re: Georgia's 6th - Ossof v. Handel.

It's so sad that such a small issue has such a big impact on the voting. Like Trump being pro life. He's ripping the world apart, ripping the country apart, breaking laws, pocketing unprecedented amounts of money, using democracy against itself, feeding off the poor, But...BUT...

But he MAYBE MIGHT POSSIBLY (or probably never) look into talking about proposing a change that could affect the legal status of abortion.

These people eat bags and bags of dicks.

Re: Georgia's 6th - Ossof v. Handel.

Maybe we can stop calling it "pro-life" since that is not what the GOP is. They are simply anti-legal abortion. They don't care that their policies bring about more abortions. They just want promiscuous sluts to possibly die seeking abortions or at least be incredibly inconvenienced. The abortion rate isn't something they ever consider.

Re: Georgia's 6th - Ossof v. Handel.

Ossoff's people are going hard with their GOTV efforts. I've been called twice this week, someone stopped by last week, and another canvasser came to my house just a few minutes ago while I was scooping my dog's ****. I have assured them all that I'm voting - they are very concerned with whether or not I'm voting early.

They just call it whatever appeals to religious people who think their views are so important that others who don't even share them should have to live by them. You know, freedom of religion but not freedom from religion.

Probably concerned that there will be fake line-standers on election day and people will give up and not vote or something

An early vote is a vote guaranteed. Super easy to fail to get to the polls on election day. If they have decent data, they'll stop bugging you within a day or two of your vote being cast.

Re: Georgia's 6th - Ossof v. Handel.

Oh yeah, I definitely understand why they want me to vote early. There's a good chance that I will, either tomorrow or Saturday. I've told them all that I can't promise to vote early, I can guarantee I will vote.

This could become a problem in future elections, among other things. If Trump has already been grabbing government money with both hands and has already started making mini oligarchs out of the RNC and others, we're going to be operating at a huge disadvantage.

Re: Georgia's 6th - Ossof v. Handel.

That's been an ongoing problem for a long time. Republicans recognized the importance of labor unions at the critical moment and dismantled them, and that's where the Democratic money used to come from. Since Citizens United we've just been walloped by ridiculous margins by deep out of state money.

Your reasoning being? Based on the primary results, he pretty much has 48.5%, 49% of the vote locked up at minimum.

TeamClinton did have way more money than TeamTrump, and that still wasn't enough.
