Concerned about the blocking of Medicaid expansion in Maine, you wouldn't see the government outright refusing to implement a referendum result over here. Unless it was totally devastating or outright impossible. Brexit will be the test of that. How far the will of the people can stretch.

VA was a Hillary state last year, and we've had mostly democratic governors and senators for many years now.

Alabama voters could potentially elect a pedophile to the Senate. This is wild.

I have zero faith in the Alabama voting pool for them to still not elect Roy Moore, even if this is proven true.

The Republicans, regardless of location, have proven by voting for Trump from the primaries right through to the presidency, that there is no single measurable trait or characteristic with a lower threshold. They will literally vote for anyone with an (R) next to their name.

It appears Republicans have made their choice. Roy Moore will be on the ballot in December. You don't get much lower than this.

I don't understand how anyone can condone or justify what Moore did, nor do I know how anyone could walk into a voting booth and vote for Moore. This isn't about left vs right or conservatism vs socialism any of that; this is basic morality and decency and any party that embraces Roy Moore or makes excuses for him are not on the side of morality and decency.

How are people still surprised by shit like this? The only way Roy Moore would've gotten off the ballot in Alabama is if he was banging another dude.

That's a great, yet extremely sad point. A 13 year old girl is more acceptable than a man.

Those are now the standards of this party. John Oliver painted the picture pretty clear on his show last night.



The Sean Hannity point is most disgusting. Re-examining Bill Clinton and his legacy is definitely something that Dems have to do, but that is no way a free pass to not even discuss what Roy Moore is accused of doing.

Yes, a re-examination of Bill Clinton's legacy can be done without the right's cynical attempts at using it to muddy the waters which I don't accept at all.

A 4 party system for U.S. would be much better overall, a party for social democrats, a party for liberal democrats, a party for conservatives and a party for nativists would ultimately allow for a healthier debate but that's not going to happen is it.

and Trump has defended Roy Moore. A pedophile. Christ.

So that makes Nazis, Putin and Pedophiles more acceptable to him than say athletes kneeling during the national anthem.

endless! Welcome back!

You just don't know what to say anymore, it's racist but people believe what they want to believe, are ignorant or have conveniently applied a level of cognitive dissonance to every stupid thing Trump says or does.

It's frustrating when Trump behaves the way no public official should, no matter what he does you get the false equivalence of the whataboutism reaction or "haha, liberals crying again, he's your president get over it" without confronting the substance of the problem in any meaningful way. Right now, Trump wants to blow a whole in his countries finances to give tax breaks to people who don't need it and doesn't come with any strings attached "i.e. to avail of this tax break you have to create x amount of jobs." Countries with lower corporation taxes also have much better educational systems to supply companies with a better standard of employee too, a factor that also seems to be neglected in all of this.

The standard is so low that on Sunday he outright endorsed a pedophile and it's treated as no big deal. That's how low the standard is. That's nowhere near acceptable.
