Elections that occur during the midterm of a Presidential cycle usually result in the party of the President losing seats in both Houses of Congress. If you have been reading the so called experts, their predictions are for a major Republican win this time around. Not only will the R’s pick up seats in the House but most are predicting that the R’s will gain control of the Senate.
Currently there are 45 R’s, 53 D’s, and 2 I’s that caucus with the rats. That means that the R’s have to pick up 6 seats to gain control.
My political predictions have been horrendous. Using my heart instead of my head. I know I am no intelligence analyst but here goes anyway.
It is not going to happen. Even though enthusiasm among the rat LIV’s is at an all time low the R’s are doing their best to throw the this election. All the talk about immigration reform being the top priority is making voters would normally vote R take notice of the non opposition by the supposed opposition party.
If you are going to do the proggies work for them why bother voting for you? Then there is the usual cadre of RINO’s to deal with. DIABLO is a much better acronym for them. Democrat In All But Label Only. They will vote for cloture knowing that whatever proggie issue of the day will pass anyway, then vote no on the actual bill, so the can maintain their ACU rating.
Best case scenario? The R’s will not gain control of Senate. Truth be known, they don’t want control. If they had it and keep cooperating with the rats. they would anger their base even more. That might risk losing money on the campaign trail.
End game. R’s might pick up 2 seats. They might also lose 2 seats. SNAFU. Status Quo.
France is working on their 5th republic. How soon before we will be working on our 2nd?
Vote for TEA’s in the primary’s. Then vote or not vote you conscious in the elections. I will not be making the mistake of voting for Sen Mark Kirk with his dismal voting record again in 16. Write in is how I will go.
