Winning in a landslide proves Democrats cheated. Winning a close election also proves Democrats cheated.

I suggest that this Republican certify himself as the winner of this election and send an official-looking document to that effect to the National Archives.

This guy lost 79-20 and he won't concede. The widespread failure of Republicans to acknowledge legitimate election results is stunning and serious.

Health care CEO?

Meaning what? That dems have to hate health care CEOs? Why do you constantly make stupid statements to be "edgy". It makes your attempts to be actually relevant and on point suspect and is akin to crying wolf. It just makes people less likely to consider anything you post seriously.

Health care CEO?

"She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and government from Howard University and a Juris Doctor from the St. Thomas University School of Law.

After graduating from college, Cherfilus-McCormick served as a project manager for the New York City Transit Authority. From 1999 to 2007, she worked as the vice president for operations of Trinity Health Care Services, Inc. She has since worked as CEO of Trinity"

In other words, an incredibly accomplished young woman.

Versus:

"Mariner has previously been convicted of felony theft, cocaine possession, and obstructing justice. He continues to question the legitimacy of the 2020 election, has praised the Jan. 6 rioters who attacked the Capitol, at least once had a Confederate flag tattoo on his right arm, and was accused by his ex-wife of threatening to kidnap and assault her. (She now fervently supports his candidacy.)

But the 36-year-old advertising executive won the GOP primary for Florida's 20th Congressional District on Nov. 4 with about 58 percent of the vote, even though he admitted to The Daily Beast that he's never actually lived in the district, which includes parts of Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach."

Yeah.

There a lot of accomplished young folks working in that industry.

But in this case, we're going to forget they're blood sucking vampire leeches off society screwing everyone in a for-profit health care scheme.

But not forever.....we'll get our memory back soon enough.

You don't have to care that a democrat member of the US House is a former Health care CEO. They don't normally run as democrats. They're usually loathed by and attacked by democrats.

That's the end of it. You have no obligation to defend it. Did YOU vote for this woman? If not, then what is your obligation to defend her election? I didn't vote for the loser she defeated...I don't have to defend that POS nor the party who put him up to the job.

Is there an actual requirement for any one to concede? I always thought it was essentially a formality - a graceful way to say "you won" and the vote stood on its own unless there was to be a recount.

BTW this guy sound like he is just jockeying in for a "job" of some sort with the corrupt right wingers. He certainly has the resume.

An old college friend of mine turned conservative whack-o-doodle once ran in our district under the GOP for the House (10+ years ago). He lost in a similar landslide - the only reason he did it was "someone had to run". I am going to say thank GOD he didn't win. I know enough current stuff about him to sink him but thinking back in history...

There's no reason to shy from the glaring historical truth that fascists murder their opponents.

Fascists came to the Capitol on 01/06 prepared to murder their opponents.

Anyone who enables Trump enables murder, if not now then in the future, no matter what fig leaves they provide for themselves.

#39. You are correct Alexandrite. In 2016 I voted for Gary Johnson and mostly libertarian candidates with a few Republicans sprinkled in. 2020 I was lazy and checked off the Libertarian box. I've been told I threw my vote away and in a two party system there is truth to that. But at the same time I see value in a protest vote. According to some historians the popularity of Eugene Debbs factored in to some of FDR's policies.

While inside the Capitol, Caldwell allegedly received Facebook messages telling him to "seal" in lawmakers in the tunnels under the Capitol and to "turn on gas." Other messages appeared to be trying to give him updates on the locations of lawmakers, the affidavit states

not a good sign to talk about sealing up your opponents and gassing them when trying to NOT sound like a nazi.

I find it hard to fathom that someone could claim to care about America, not recognize how far we are currently backsliding as a democracy, and then determine that it's not a big deal whether Biden or Trump is president.

Set aside every single policy you agree or disagree with any of the candidates on. One of them supported free and fair elections. The other one literally tried to overthrow democracy via procedural loopholes and fomented a riot to overtake the Capitol during the counting of electoral votes. How can any patriot possibly shrug at that? How can you say that someone's policy on anything is more important than that?

I'm sorry that the discussion has turned so raw. But this is the essence of politics, whether people live or die. Whether people are allowed to live or forced to die.

Donald Trump is a monster at the level of Hitler. Don't despise the comparison because Trump has yet to obtain quite the landscape Hitler used for his work. Trump has always wanted that landscape, and he has always had millions of mini-monsters willing to help him get it.

Trump WANTS his enemies dead. His supporters WANT their enemies dead.

Coincidentally, that's what Republicans love about him. He's his own man, beholden to no one and certainly not the American people. He doesn't have to try to make America a better place just because that's what's expected of our President. Refreshing.
