North Carolina, Colorado and Michigan are slowly slipping away..... The forgiving American Electorate will stick with the status quo on November 4. Just hide and watch; Mary Landrieu will pull out a win in LA, Nunn will pull it off in GA and Thad Cochran just might lose in MS. Mitch McConnell, been in Washington 30+ years and is Senate Minority Leader; and he's only up by 1.5 points. Bye, Bye Mitch. Bye, Bye GOP chance for a Senate takeover. You brought it on yourselves.

Not “slipping away”; FLEEING from the GOPe’s attempts to “crush the Tea Party everywhere.

Such incredible STUPIDITY to wage war on your “uppity” base.

The GOP have imploded themselves, they pi$$ on the base daily. Calling us racists in Mississippi, then working their butts off to make sure a black man didn’t get elected in Oklahoma.

But really, in this time of such ineptness from the Obama administration, should democrats even be in the race? You know the real story, we’re toast.

In Michigan my state house rep voted for common core and to enforce OBama care. He is now trying to raise some of the highest fuel taxes higher even higher. Why would I vote for a republican here. I will vote for land but she will most likely have to fight the current repubs in office in Michigan.

It would be stupid if the GOP leadership constituted an actual opposition party.

Since their actual job is to defend their bankster masters from the negative financial effects of disruptive political insurrection, their anti-Tea Party tactics have actually been quite brilliant.

As I’ve said many times, they saw a wave coming and they were scared to death that a wave would sweep conservatives into their precious Senate. So they moved heaven and earth to get incumbents and their bland clones the nominations all across the country...so the gravy train keeps flowing.

It won’t last though. There will likely still be a wave, but at the lower levels, in the down-ballot races. They’ve been putting all their money and attention on the senate that they haven’t been able to manipulate the down-ballot races much. And those will be the breeding grounds for the replacements to the aging Establishment Gerald Ford admirers.

In 2010 the republicans took 700 legislative seats, and 19 legislative chambers (losing some in 2012). I’m hoping we see that happen again, move Convention of States applications through the legislatures and tame the federal leviathan.

I’ve said from the beginning, the GOP’s gains in the Senate will be: WVA, MT, SD and possibly Alaska.

The max gain will be +4.

The GOP doesn’t deserve the votes of people that have been screwed over once too many. voting for them will just encourage them to continue the course they’re on.

The way I see it, with RAT and GOPe being virtually indistinguishable, we must shake things up by refusing to play the game by their rules.

After '14-- third party time… I think, simply, "Conservative Republican" would do fine.

It's only a matter of time until elections are all about pluralities. The new Hispanics are not going to be as malleable as the Democrats think--they come from a chaotic political tradition of multiple parties.

It's not just third party, but several parties…from libertarian to communist…that I believe is in our future. It might even work out better, since a plurality is easier to get and will dilute the power of the oligarchs.

Because of the Founding Fathers’ design of the “Electoral College” and how they intended it to work, multiple parties will not work, as long as that Electoral College is still in play.

Of course - that also may be the reason many are currently - today - trying to DESTROY the Founding Fathers’ system and working of the “Electoral College”.

I live in NC, and I have no intention of voting for Thom Tillis in November - and this is specifically because of what the GOPe did (and continues to do) in Mississippi.

Tellw - jerk since the beginning of time. I find it loathsome that just because a person hasn't been registered for many years, that person is less than you.

The arrogant, smarmy attitude you exhibit is distasteful at best.

You were probably an Alan Keyes supporter for president, in which, during that unfortunate candidacy would go ballistic at someone pointing out the truth.

Din Maker: my apologies on behalf of Tellw, who believes he is superior to you because he has been registered here longer than you. Thanks for posting the information and you are only a messenger. God forbid that we should be aware of what is going on. Perhaps we should just pretend all republican candidates are up by 30 points - then tellw would have sent you a swell message instead.

Keep in mind that Shelly Capito picking up the WV seat isn't exactly a "win," either. IIRC, she's just another RINO, pro-abortion money-grub.

That would make things a lot easier for the GOPe. At least then they could claim they had no choice but to go along with the RATs since they are in charge.

If the GOPe won, they still wouldn’t be able to stand up to Obama and Reid and Pelosi etc anyway. So “what difference, at this point, does it make?”

This is part of the GOPee plan. They do not want to take the Senate because they do not want to lead. They want to suck up the crumbs from Harry Reid's table, get invited to DC parties and golf outings. They want to be anonymous back benchers so the media won't write or say bad things about them. They are clueless, spineless, gutless, and worthless.

Are you talking about this Ronald Reagan:

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan

Oh yeah, by all means I want to tie myself to a duplicate of any ordinary dem ass and find the party floating down stream into the cess pool of politics. No longer the ‘battered woman’ The GOP has had papers filed. They get the children and I, the car, the house and the business. Hailey in Mississippi was the last straw. They hit just once too often.

So, what’s your point RINO-lover? It’s people like you who will bring me great consolation when the GOP wakes up on the morning of Nov. 5th to the news that they did NOT take control of the Senate. I will be so happy on that day, knowing that you, and all the other sissy RINOs, are grieving and in deep pain.

Thanks Dave. I have already sent a reply to tellw. I get so tired of some of these old farts, who’ve been on this website for a gazillion years, thinking they have the right to diss people or run to the Moderator and try to have someone zotted because they are not in step with their line of thinking. And they are from both extremes; the RINO-lovers and the Conservative purists. I just don’t let them intimidate me. I get right back in their freakin’ face.

Thanks again.

Excuse me Alissa; we're not stupid. I know what the MSM can do. I know that they have ruined any chance of Sarah Palin ever running for national office because they have convinced the American public she is a dolt. I know how the uninformed electorate continues to pull the lever for the 30 year incumbent because they "recognize the name". I say again, we're not stupid. But, don't blame the MSM for multiple thousands of Conservatives who are saying "We're mad as hell and we're not taking it anymore." We will not vote for Mitch McConnell who hates us and has threatened to crush us and then expect our vote in November. We will not vote for the senile, race-baiting, Democrat-lite Thad Cochran after what he has done with the help of the Barbour cronies in MS. We will not vote for Lindsey Graham when he has proven that he is more Dem than Conservative. And he has a 3rd Party Challenger in Nov. who just might toss SC to the Dems. And if that happens.... GOOD!

If Chris McDaniel can somehow run as a Write-in or Independent OR..... if his supporters withhold their votes in the Senate Race, OR even vote for the Democrat, Cochran could lose. The Democrats in MS are fired-up and excited. Look for a lot of money to pour into MS for the Dem candidate. Given the mess the GOP has made of their Primary, the Dems think they have a realistic chance at that seat. Childers (Dem candidate)who is Pro-life and Pro-2nd Amendment, is already going after the McDaniel supporters.
