^ Right, I understand what you're saying now. It's a subtle but well made point. Like you, I have no facts or figures available, but wouldn't disagree with that idea at all.

As for the election results, can't help feeling disappointed about Beto O'Rourke and so many other races that were "close but no cigar." Stacey Abrams I fear will be branded a sore loser, but she has a point: Kemp leads by about 75 thou. votes after having suppressed about 50 thou. voters. That's my take on it anyway.

And of course, the fact that Kemp oversees elections, in his capacity as Georgia Secretary of State, is a pretty glaring conflict of interest.

ultimately we did get the Blue Wave though

Trump will phrase it as a victory despite going around talking about a Red Wave

Somebody on Facebook is posting **** that says voting is giving consent to be ruled and I now don't like that person because they are an obnoxiously pretentious idiot.
