To call the 2022 midterm elections a near-disaster is like calling Sheila Jackson-Lee’s Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act a mild infringement on our Second Amendment rights. The “red wave” that wasn’t is bad news. Second Amendment supporters have a LOT of hard lessons to learn, and fast, because the 2024 election is truly for all the marbles. ...- Harold Hutchison

Looks to me like until the right learns how to fight fire with fire, (meaning stuffing ballot boxes, an all that). We don’t stand a chance in future elections.

In that really bothers me to have to say that.

We knew, years ago, who the likely winner was before we went to bed. Two years ago, I went to bed with Trump leading in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia, by good margins.

But, the "darkness" came and in the light of dawn, Joe had the lead as big liberal controlled cities always were the last to be "officially" counted.

Yeah, okay.....

It's irrelevant when you vote, or how many times you vote. As long as we have voting season, and states that count votes for weeks until the corrupt parties involved find the results they want, we're going to keep seeing the same bovine excrement. Case in point - Arizona...



Arizona Attorney General's Office has opened an investigation. (Yeah right!) They asked the Secretary of State and the Elections Committee to explain the hundreds of complaints they've received. The Secretary of State won the election for Governor, and the Chairman and another member of the Elections Committee established an anti-Maga Pac last year. Meaning they hold an established political opposition to the Secretary of State's Opponent. Therefore, I am reasonably certain, they will get an honest forthright explanation for the problems incurred. At which point we will determine if the AG's Office in Arizona is corrupt as well. Which given the fact they haven't done anything with the 2020 election we can rest assured they are. The list of infractions is so egregious this time that it is simply mind boggling, leading me to believe revolution may in fact be necessary to fix this problem.

I don't care if you're a Lefty or a Righty -- the certain majority is always the 25.5% just to either side of dead-center. What we have on offer now is whatever you want, as long as it is EXTREME Left or Right.

Screw 'em both...
This is true.
As long as the (R)'s stay hard right, we will continue to lose.
Without independents, we can not win. And if those independents think the Dems are "the lesser of two evils" we don't stand a chance.

I've voted a straight Republican ticket in each and every election since 1972, mid terms and generals, and with what I'm reading lately if Trump is the 2024 nominee, we are screwed. The Dem's won't even have to cheat.

Great Article in the Link you provided. In PA, the cities call the shots in State Elections. Most City people are not allowed to have firearms, they have depended on Police to keep them safe for decades. What with the open borders, defund police, and no bail catch and release you would think that City voters would not continue to vote for Democrats. It didn't happen. Stupid is as stupid does. City people deserve what they are getting.

Those of us that live in rural areas did NOT vote for Democrats, at lest most of us. A large number of us rural folks live in safe communities, and most of us are well armed. The County Sheriff's department won't enforce anti gun rights laws no matter what Washington DC and Harrisburg PA says. I couldn't care less about anything those idiots in charge Legislate.

I honestly don't believe the cities are voting Democrat Mike. The cities simply have the population to effectively hide multiple methods of cheat. There's as much or more down ballot cheating going on in those bigger communities, as there is high stakes cheat. There is simply no way, anyone in their right mind can look at the current rate of inflation. the current state of the economy in general, look back at the lock-downs, mask mandates, force vaccination, questionable election practices, unsecured borders, illegal immigration, tens of billions of dollars being senselessly thrown away overseas, the blatant propaganda, etc. etc. etc. and vote Democrat. There simply is not that many brain-dead individuals walking the streets. It's impossible.

In the last two national elections, I looked at the voting record County by County. Counties that were cities primarily vote Democrat. Trump narrowly won the 2016 election over Clinton in PA. However Biden took PA in 2020. Cities probably do have more cheating than rural Counties. We can speculated but the fact is that City people are more dependent upon the services they get from Government than rural areas, I reviewed the voting results of PA Counties on the MAP provided for each election.

The main lesson I learned from the 2022 midterms is that unless the states can get a handle on election fraud, nothing can or will change.
Election fraud is now so common in the US that FBI agents are not even ashamed of being taken off law enforcement duties and assigned to election tampering and attacking political enemies.
The states needs to get control of these "mail in ballots", get rid of these easily compromised machines and go back to paper ballots, verifying ID's, and most importantly, force state officials to follow state election laws. Allow election observers to remain on the premises and "observe" when they stop counting ballots several times during an election (for days at a time), during their election fornication, and stop destroying all the evidence (wiping the machines), immediately after the election!
Even third world countries are able to count votes ON election day, and check voter ID's and eligibility.
IMO, forget about 2024 until people take back their states and their elections. Nothing will change because nothing CAN change until that happens.

If elections could really change anything, the US government would not allow them...

Next 2022 mid-tern Lesson...

So can someone tell me why the Secretary of State / Governor Elect of Arizona is threatening to sue the Commissioners of Cochise County for hand counting the 47,000 ballots received in their county? And, she's not alone. At least 2 other liberal organizations in the state have threatened lawsuits if they recount ballots, rather than simply certify the results.

Gee! Kinda makes you wonder what they are afraid they're going to find there; doesn't it?

Meanwhile Kari Lake has now indicated at least one member of the State Elections Board is supposed to be receiving appointment to Hobbs administration, entering ANOTHER Conflict of Interest into this SNAFU.

I could tell you, but you really already know don't you? It will be interesting to see if the FBI pays a little visit to the Commissioners of Cochise County in the wee hours of the morning...

I'm confused by your first sentence

Can you explain to me how the "left" isn't already doing "meaning stuffing ballot boxes, an all that"?

I'm sure you meant Right, instead of Left, but that certainly is not what you said

I mentioned it repeatedly but, I saw the same thing here in Florida looking at the numbers. Hillary won all but two population centers here in the Sunshine State, Duval County / Jacksonville and Pinellas County / St. Petersburg. Trump had so much support in Jacksonville that he chose that community for the Republican National Convention. There were Trump signs by the hundreds everywhere in the community, rarely a Biden sign. People camped out on the sidewalks 2 days to get in to Trump rallies. Biden lost votes statewide, Democrat party lost votes statewide. No way you will convince me Biden won Jacksonville.

St. Petersburg voted for Trump 2016, Biden lost 5 - 10% in all counties and communities immediately surrounding St. Petersburg, he lost 5 - 15% of the Democrat vote statewide, and we're supposed to believe that he somehow miraculously pulled off a win in that community? You Betcha!

Didn't believe it then and mid-terms definitely didn't support it. St. Pete voted for a Republican governor, Democrat candidate is from St. Pete, he represented the district in Congress for more than a decade. Not only did they NOT vote for him for governor, they elected a Republican to his congressional seat. Joe Biden did NOT win St. Pete in 2020.

One thing I found consistent in states where the vote was iffy after 2020, virtually all of them used a combination of Dominion voting machines in suburban and rural districts, while using Election Systems and Software in the larger population centers. Which is was later pointed out, the two are in fact one.
