    I'm so disappointed in people. At least we will eventually go extinct or evolve out of this state.

    I just can't believe how many of our neighbors support what the GOP has become. We are absolutely in a living distopia. I will make peace and move on by morning, but for tonight I dutifully embrace this moment and dine on my bitter disappointment and drink in the dissolution.

    Cheers!

    3. Democrats just won back the House.

    It's a big deal.

    12. I understand

    Yes, that will be my solace in the morming. My disappointment is both more macroscopic, and microscopic... I'm both shamed at our country for getting to this point and further inscensed that we didn't resoundingly reject all that is the tonight. Beto and Gillum losing to their respective opponents is absolutely inexcusable in the current state of our union. We are a deeply tribal and near hopelessly uneducated populace. On the local scale, I am literally disappointed in my neighbors. The people I work with. The owners of the businesses I patronize. I live and work in both Tennesse and Florida. The breakdown of the numbers for Hamilton County, Tennessee and Lee County, Florida make me disgusted.

    4. The only thing that kept the Republicans from losing everything was the

    economy trump inherited.

    7. We saved the world tonight. Quit yer complainin'.

    We have the House. That means Mueller's investigation is protected, so are Social Security, Medicare and ACA, we can subpoena the tax returns, which will bring trump's downfall, we won a lot of state races so we can stop the damn gerrymandering, got rid of the first wave of the fascists, we now have some oversight.

    I don't know what you were expecting, but I am pretty damn psyched.

    9. I'm with you. A look at the map shows how far the red has

    spread into areas that once were true blue. If we had won a couple of Senate seats like Texas and kept ND, MO, IN, I'd have seen us on the way back to sanity. I cannot believe the yearning for fascism that has taken over white males and evangelicals.

    I don't recognize the country of my birth and am no longer comfortable living here. I thought a great majority would rise up.

    10. If it's any consolation, there isn't likely to be a GOP or Democratic Party in 100 years

    Extreme stresses from climate change will cause such global instability before then, there's a good chance western civilization will collapse into authoritarianism, then feudalism and worse.

    15. Now that we have the House, prepare to see investigations of things previously ignored

    This was the necessary first step towards a reset of the country.
    Which will be just as bogus as the RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA collusion meme, and will ensure President Trump wins the next election and cement Democrats as being extremists and haters. Not only in regards to how they treat President Trump but their high regard for Marxist ideology and a desire for socialism.

    Man made climate change is about as real as the blue wave.
    Liberals! The real fascists.

    ah, nice. Something to look forward to that will save us from the booming economy President Trump had wrought upon the land...

    more important than putting the Country back to work? More important than securing the borders to keep American Citizens safe and protect American jobs?

    Ya, massive taxes, massive regulation, destroying businesses just to see them destroyed, striping people of the right to Free Speech, taking away their right of self defense , and bunch of NPC assholes in your face 24/7.
    That's what DU is rooting for.
