Skip to comments.Roy Moore Win — A Movement That Has Elites Shaking
Posted on 09/27/2017 2:17:32 PM PDT by Enlightened1
Roy Moore just beat Luther Strange in the Republican runoff for Alabamas U.S. Senate seat, by roughly 10 percentage points.
And now both Democrats and the establishment wing of the Republicans are shaking in their boots or at least, they ought to be.
This wasnt a win so much for a man as it was a message from voters for a principle for a movement, one that elitists have been trying to stamp for years is still alive.
Its a movement that goes like this: Were the American citizens, youre the political class, and you work for us. Its a populist-minded movement, a Christian conservative movement, the same type that brought President Donald Trump to the White House in the 2016 elections the same type that fueled the wins of tea party candidates in the last several elections.
Moore was supposed to go down in flames. Thats what the media told voters. Thats what everyone from Sen. Mitch McConnell to Trump wanted.

They’ll just co-opt him when he gets to DC.................
President Trump did not “want” a Moore victory. He positioned himself so he wins either way.
Brilliant bit of strategy.
I doubt that will work on Moore.
He has already been bloodied by them. He will not be turned.
Extrapolation to panic
One seat does not a movement make
A Movement That Has Elites Shaking
Moore is not strange...
We have pitchforks (figuratively, please no notes or responses saying this is inappropriate), tar, feathers, and a rail to ride folks out of town on.
The wave is cresting folks... look out below.
GOPe, we’re coming for YOU.
But he is funny...............
I have said it many times that no one here can complain about the people in DC because we sent them there, many times with no real vetting, and if you don’t like things then get off your ass and send them home, and stop acting like a helpless victim.
ALABAMA DID THERE PART! Now what is our excuse?
That’s up to the people of Alabama.
Dont comfort yourself with talk of God, and a southern accent.
He is your employee, and you all have a responsibility to say on his ass 24/7.
Let’s keep them quaking!
Let’s keep them quaking!
Strange is no more.....
Yeah, good luck with that.
Moore's the type that will sooner go to his grave than betray his principles. He may likely be a pain in the neck who will be marginalized by his colleagues and rendered ineffective, but turn? Oh, uh...no
I agree they co-opt most, but I wouldn't count on it with Roy Moore. He has tangled with the best of them, and is willing to cut his losses and stand for principles.
Wicker, Hatch, Heller and Flake need to be repealed and replaced in 2018.
You don’t know who Roy Moore is, do you?
I don’t think for a minute that Trump is sorry Moore won. I think he calculated that opposing Strange in the primary while he was trying to work with the Senate would just make it that much harder to get things done, but inside he was having gigglefits about the idea of primarying another RINO.
