Our Country Needed This

Alabama has spoken. We will not have (an outed) pervert on the Senate. We needed a course correction, I hope this serves as a beacon to the rest of our country come election next year.

Hallelujah! I wish I had done a sermon before Trump got elected πŸ˜‰

I am thrilled at the prospect of tomorrow with this result. The wave of sanity that swept Alabama, needs to sweep the country and let’s fix what has been broken. Oh and send as many of these R shysters as far into jail as the evidence leads us.

I will sleep a little better tonight. Though there is still a long way to go…

  3. I may celebrate with a toast this evening. I am still feeling pretty good about this particular election.

    Still, far too many asshats voted to put the pervert in office. No matter how much I really like the outcome, there is still the fact that so many people, and the R party, are willing to sell out their country for a conservative ideology as well as the rape the country and the people in it R agenda. Which is regretful.

    Still agreat step in the right direction last night.

  4. True. Far too many still voted for the pedophile, but, even had Moore won by a similar margin, it would still have been a good sign. Trump got about 67% of the vote in Alabama just last year. Things are changing. Not as quickly as I’d like, but they are. The Repukelicans have themselves, Trump, Bannon, and guys like Moore to thank for that. There’s a little something stirring in my heart that hasn’t been there in awhile: hope.

  8. I am of the same mind miss Nan πŸ™‚

    I was watching MSNBC last night as the results were filtering in. Moore had the lead early (somewhere around 40k vote lead) and I was fairly irritated/disgusted with mankind. I didn’t even want to watch anymore of it and changed the channel. Then the wife was like “put it back!” So I went back, and we watched, and slowly but surely Jones started creeping back up in the vote count. It began to feel like I was watching a horse race and the horse I had money on caught up with the pack on the third turn. Then as they hit the last stretch Jones lead continued to grow. Then Jones crossed the finish line by a nose. It was fairly intense there for a little while lol.

  11. I think I agree with my friend the divine one, it is time white Americans were exiled. I looked at the vote by demographics and it paints such a bad picture

  12. Yes, the demographic sort of jumps out and slaps us in the face does it not?

    If it wasn’t for a heavy black voter turnout, Moore would have won handily. We need these fine folks to continue to flood the polling stations.

    Kind of fitting when you think about it. Given the history of slavery, racism, white favoritism, and voter suppression, that they are our voice of reason. I want to hug them all. Perhaps Scottie will help me with that πŸ™‚

  13. SD — you need to add a “like” option to your comments! I know you host your own blog, but I’m pretty sure the option is available as I used to host a couple of my own blogs as well (long gone, now).

    P.S. I wanted to “like” your comment about the hugs. Clever. πŸ™‚

  14. I’m embarrassed to be white at times. thank Jeebus black people came out and voted Tuesday. Their votes made Jones win. There’s power in solidarity. It’s just so very hard to build at times.

  17. Nan I have looked high and low for that possibility but have not found it yet. Could be a result of my particular blog plan. I’m a cheap bastard you know πŸ˜‰

    But thank you!

    If anyone knows where to find the ‘turn on the likes’ let me know. I have the option myself to like a comment. I just rarely use it because of my own personal fear of becoming a blog narcissist living for the likes. It is a strange place inside my head and my thanks to all who still will come and share it πŸ™‚
