Trump Bellowing

 

This is the morning for analysis of yesterday’s mid-term elections in the United States; so here is mine.  First, a bit of my background.

 

I know some about racism and how prevalent it is in the southern US. While I am Caucasian I have also had to use a wheelchair to get around for almost fifty years so I do know what it is like to be discriminated against. Balance against this I earned a 4 year degree and had a twenty two year professional career.

What qualifies me to analyze political developments? My degree is in Political Science so one of the things I notice is political action. So here is what I believe happened in the 2018 mid-term elections.

As I thought the corporate and controlling wing of the Democratic Party had a blue trickle not a blue wave. What was surprising was their devastation in the US Senate races. I thought they would gain one seat and not be further marginalized.

While I expected the gains by the Democratic Party in the US House of Representatives they were minuscule. That many were progressives with a generous sprinkling of women of color gives me hope.

Sadly I expected the electoral defeats of Stacey Abrams in Georgia and Andrew Gillum in Florida.

Election fraud by her opponent may be part of Stacey Abrams’ defeat. With Andrew Gillum’s his campaign after his primary victory was stupid. But the reason beneath both defeats is racism. I have lived in both states and have seen how rampant racism is.

The results of the election are mainly the result of the the usual incompetence of the Democratic Party corporate leadership!

What is to be expected from the election? One thing I knew would happen has already come true. Of course Trump already is saying it is a positive mandate for his actions. It is nothing of the sort.

Of more interest will be watching Nancy Pelosi trying to shoe horn progressive who are not beholding to corporate interests into what is her version of the Democratic Party of money money money. While also watching Chuck Schumer trying to make excuses for his lack of leadership.
