The Mainstream finds this evil? I think not. The mainstream would like a decent life, and for the most part can achieve this through work and sensible consumption. "Poverty" in this country is at a level that much of the rest of the planet would be very pleased to enjoy, and thanks to the "white European" economic system, the rest of the world is living better than they ever did, and this trend is growing.

The impression of evil and racism is brought to us courtesy of those who would reduce or remove our liberties and increase their personal wealth and power at our expense. The call of "racism" in this country is another fine lie, brought to us by the exemplars of the party of slavery, most of whose taunts are based on their own actions, and tossed at their political opponents after the fact. This provides a pre-emptive defense. No shortage of race-baiters in the political landscape, but the racism they decry hardly exists, except for that which they intentionally generate. Job security

Numbers don't lie? They've been used to lie for generations. It was Mark Twain who made the lies, damn lies and statistics comment. I doubt he was the first to notice. Lies, repeated loudly and often, have taken on the veneer of truth in the hands of political operators throughout history. They are artfully adapted to further the agendas of the liars. It worked in the past, and works today as well.

Folks who denigrate the nature of what this nation was, and was intended to be, might seriously consider finding a place more to their liking, perhaps in one of those different cultures and societies.
The numbers I referred to are the shift in demographics which in turn cause the shift in culture. As white Europeans fast become the minority in this country, the mainstream changes right along with that. Ultimately most other racial groups take race into consideration in their daily live much more than whites. Just look at the parallel underground economy that each ethnicity attempts to participate in.

Thatís lovely and all, but theyíve done jack shit lately. They had a 2 year ownership of all 3 branches of government. What pro 2A issues were advanced, despite numerous candidates campaigning on that?

Just like the Dems, they will sell us down the river as long as itís politically expedient.

I donít disagree. They still chose to fight Trump instead of getting shit done.

Just got done at the local farmers market here in Sterling. . .moms demand action had a booth.

I took some fliers, walked down a few booths and threw them in the trash. All while carrying my trusty G19 plus spare mag lol

Maybe Republicans in VA will actually go out and vote this time, and / or not for some third party candidate spoiler.

And maybe they'll make better primary choices, so their candidates don't give off the crazy vibe and scare every last one of the otherwise still pretty conservative soccer moms away in the general election (see Freitas vs Stewart).

Good point.

That is simply false. you need sixty in the senate. There have been a huge number of times when the entire party or 99% of it has supported MANY advancements of 2A rights but thwarted by the 60 vote rule.

And the GOP pulled all the stops to make sure we did not entirely lose the Supreme court three years ago.

They are not just like the democrats and only someone who has not paid attention tot he votes of the 8,000 legislators in the 101 state and federal legislature bodies in the US would say so.

Political views fall along a continum. No voter or candidate has identical views and no one has a right to assert some orthodoxy and what are and are not the correct views. People from deep red state or statewide districts labeling people in purple districts "RINOs" is silly. No one in polticla science or the study of elections does that since it makes no sense -- of course incumbents in purple or close races have to moderate some their positions -- it makes sense in every way that they do.

in the case of Virginia I know lots of women who have businesses, are fiscally conservative, don't like the liberal culture wars in the schools or "progressive" politics of division -- but who were understandably never going to vote for Ken Cuccinelli. He just took a suicidal position on reproduction guaranteeing his loss and fking over the GOP voters.

As far as Freitas vs Stewart, you make a good point. The GOP was likely to lose the general anyway but by losing by 15 points Freitas made Kaine appear to be superman who doesn't need to watch his back now at all.

I know plenty of people who are hard core Republican on every issue but climate. But they consider climate a very important issue and the GOP is going to have increasing problems on that.

The data show most Americans are in the messy middle on reproductive law, not supporting either total bans nor the amazingly despicable position Northam took, but rather know that 64 cells is not a human life, and knowing that anyone looking at a 6 month sonogram knows it is a human life. So either side simply losses voters by taking positions on the edge and at some point people not on the very edges/extremes are as bad as any critique of "RINOS's since they are helping ensure a Democrat get's elected as we saw with McAuliffe.
