Today’s Thought:

As an historical fact, the party in the White House generally does much worse in midterm elections than does the party which is not.

A sobering look at 2014 suggests 2018 will be a disaster for Democrats. In 2014, we had a relatively popular incumbent president and still lost net seats in the House and Senate, and also were swept by the Republicans across the country in state and local elections.

If Hillary wins in 2016, she will be the most unpopular recently elected president in US history. Given that she will be able to get absolutely nothing accomplished in her first two years (the House will remain Republican, the Senate will likely be retaken by the Democrats) the overwhelming likelihood is that we will suffer MONUMENTAL losses in the midterms election in 2018.

Thirty two governorships are up in 2018, and if we only break even, THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL DEMOCRATS WILL CONTROL REAPPORTIONMENT IN 2020.

The Republicans will be able to gerrymander the House as they did in 2010. We will have a Republican House until 2030. GUARANTEED!

An incredible price to pay for the novelty of voting for the first woman president!



Author’s Notes:

I am unaware of any other blog with the Armory’s mission of radicalizing the animal movement. I certainly hope I am not alone, and that there are similar sentiments being expressed by comrades unknown to me.

If you know of other blogs dedicated to animal rights and the defeat of capitalism, please comment with a link.

  1. You don’t mention one tremendously important problem. Leaving everything else aside (& there is LOTS to leave aside) the thought of Donald Trump making one or more lifetime Supreme Court appointments is not acceptable. Or do you see the Democratic Senate stonewalling confirmation(s) for 4 years?


    • I question the premise that Hillary Clinton’s appointments to the court would be better than those of Donald Trump. Probably the most enlightening decision was just handed down in the case of a former governor of Virginia, whose criminal conviction for accepting bribes was overturned unanimously by the current court. The court reasoned that what the governor did was commonplace in politics, and was therefor acceptable. The outrageous decision was supported by all Clinton and Obama appointees to the court. It does not appear that Hillary Clinton’s appointees would be more progressive than Obama’s, nor can we reasonably infer that Trump’s could be worse.
