      I have been elected by the Hahira delegation as Illustrious Potentate. Be sure you're at the secret meeting.

              That Broward County lady probably pulls crap like that. She has already destroyed records that were supposed to be preserved by law a few times and has been cited by the Court. Hopefully she is a little nervous to try it this time.

              Nevada seems to take the cake in state elections. The Dems have been known to outperform the crooked lefty polls there by 10% or so in these mid-term elections.

                  Anecdotal but it sounds like Reps are keeping pace in election day voting like they usually do in FL. Just have to hope the Indies aren't breaking big time for the Democrats.

                    Regardless of the results from tonight, I think more right leaning citizens need to prepare for the inevitable - this nation is moving left rapidly.

                    It just seems impossible that this can be avoided when a liberal ideologies are propagated in nearly all educational institutions and by their teachers, and additionally by most all video media and social media platforms, and the average person who lives in this country is looking to gain something for nothing.

                    Face it - traditional conservative values (family first, hard work, and good morals) just simply isn't being propagated or accepted in this society, and I am concerned for the future of our nation.

                      Nation that continues to deny God and dismisses American exceptionalism. Pushes a narrative that we are an evil nation built on lies, white privilege, slavery and colonialism. They have disdain for our military and more compassion for people trying to enter the country illegally. Should be an interesting and bloody future, but it's one they have asked for.

                        There's a reason counter cultures are effective. Classical liberalism is a counter-culture, as are traditional mores you mentioned. Christianity was a counter cultural movement during its periods of most rapid spread. It still grows the fastest when it is in a restrictive environment. This the same with all such movements. It has a lot to do with our nature as humans. The progressive (really regressive) movement was once a counter-culture.

                        It's hard to see the arc of history in the vapor that is our own lives - but don't buy into the idea that you can snuff out those ideals you're talking about. You can repress them for a season, but that orthodoxy doesn't last forever. It never has and it never will. The more the people in power try to enforce their ideals the more they feed the fire of the counter movement. True liberty is the great equilibrium that can't ever be obtained due to the craven nature of people who obtain any measure of power. As such the cycle of revolution and counter revolution will probably go on as long as there are people.

                        Personally, I believe we have neared the high-water mark of the so-called progressives. You can see this in the growing popularity of anti-orthodox movements like anti-feminism, conservative meme culture, the crowds of young people that show up to talks by provocateurs like Milo Yiannopoulos and classically liberal intellectuals like Jordan Peterson, the phenomena of MGTOW, etc among younger people. It's the tragedy of humanity that we're constantly struggling for the state that we are born into - freedom - but go about it by trying to control the actions of others.

                        The real danger is not the death of an ideology, but the death of a nation. There's no doubt that the climate currently is waiting for a spark with violence seemingly more realistic than it has in any period since the late 1850s. It may be that long term we are simply too diverse geographically and philosophically to exist as a single nation. When that happens the division can be peaceful or violent. No good ever comes from involuntary association. I think there's some hope if we can learn again to talk to each other rather than at each other.

                        That's my two cents, anyway.

                          I have no idea which way today will go, but our local precinct indicated voting is up 50% over what it was 2y ago for the Presidential election.
