    Default Well, Trump hands another Governorship to Democrats. (place 'face palm' emoji here)

    "On Saturday, voters narrowly reelected Edwards to a second term, snubbing Republican businessman Eddie Rispone deep in the heart of Trump country."

    "Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards will keep his job as the Deep Southís only Democratic governor, in a blow to President Donald Trump, who tried to boost his opponent."

    Sorry...I didn't see this thread and just posted a dupe. But I guess it's worth two anyway.

    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Letís face it, guys: Weíre done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    edwards was a pro gun and pro life incumant. not really the typical modern democrat. but ok.

    "Edwards responded that he differs from national Democrats on major issues, including his opposition to abortion and his support for gun rights."

    Biography:

    Grind is one of the internets most beloved and influential political thinkers and deep-level theorists in the modern era. He rose to prominence in early 2015 when he alleged, contrary to the dominant theory of christiefanism of the time, that Bill Clintons wife was indeed running for president and wasn't considering settling down to be a grandmother. In 2016, Grind was one of the key figures in proposing the new revolutionary theory of "30% is not a rare occurrence" which shook up the JPP political landscape like no other theory ever had before. His academic prowess, deep-level analysis and remarkable insight into human nature and psychology will undoubtedly result in further complexities being untangled and laid bare. He currently resides in boston, his hobbies include #rekking libs, vaping, and patriotism. You can find him in a thread near you.

    He was in the deep south. Those positions are a given.

    It's as bad as D.C. and will never be run by anything but a Democrat.
    Now you understand the meaning of the term "Louisiana Democrat"? Read their history. They love their corruption.
    So, good. They'll continue to spiral down...but wait...they're already at the bottom.

    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason & harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels
    empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating
    pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals are protected in their nesting places, humans are not. To abort something is to end something
    which has begun. To abort life is to end it.

    That's true. His announcing of Victory was opened with a religious prayer.

    J.B.E. was able to balance a Budget. Something Trump doesn't seem capable of doing.

    "Louisiana has had three years of cash balances when budget years ended: $123 million from 2016-17, $308 million from 2017-18, and the latest one from the 2018-19 fiscal year that ended June 30."

    good point, and La. has only not reelected a sitting gov. 1 time before.
    La. are the ultimate Blue Dogs from the days when the Dems wanted Blue Dogs (like me) in their party.

    Yes, we all know how well Obama balanced the federal budget.

    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    Noone balances a budget when recovering from a recession. You show your ignorance with such a fucking stupid response.

    Zelensky: I would also like to thank you for your great support in the area of defense. We are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps, specifically we are almost ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes....
