    There will be lawsuits about this. So who knows where this diregulation will end up going

    So you are saying that last year all the people who stayed at home endorsed Trump? I think they didn't like the candidates. So they didn't vote. A lot of them were African Americans. I don't believe they meant to endorse Trump by staying at home

    Following your logic, all the people who casted a write-in vote also sided with Moore because they didn't vote for Jones? You are claming that people who didn't vote for Jones, in same way they agree with Moore. Sorry it is not like that https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/paloma/daily-202/2017/12/14/daily-202-the-suburban-revolt-against-trump-continued-in-alabama/5a31b01430fb0469e883fba4/?hpid=hp_hp-more-top-stories_daily202-846am%3Ahomepage%2Fstory&utm_term=.80641846dcac The love Republicans but they have a positive view about Democrats. And Trump was also an issue. Alabama is split about Trump

    I wouldn't rush to judge. The way I see it people who didn't vote for Moore it was because they were not fans of him. In general people ignore midterm elections. the turn out is always low. And this one wasn't even a midterm election. I'm not going to sterotype Alabama citizens. The same way I don't stereotype other groups either

    That number is not accurate. Only 40% of eligible voters showed up at the polls. The way you put it you make it sound that 48% of the entire population of Alabama voted for pedophile. The majority of Alabama population stayed at home. About 650,000 voted for Moore. That's still a big number and that's a shame. But the population of entire State is a little less than 5 million. Meaning millions of people didn't vote for Moore

    I think the accusations started one month before the election because of the Harvey Weinsten scandal. This is was and is still massive. And the whole world was talking about sexual harrasment. So that encouraged women to come forward.

    I don't think it is a matter of 90s or 2000s. I'm afraid the biggest problem is when women wait 20 years to come forward. We saw it with Bill Cosby. Now we are seeing it with Harvey Weinstein. The longer women wait. The smaller their chances are for getting justice done. Especially if the allegations are against rich and powerful men. Unfortunately a lot of people get the impression that those women just want money. Or that they are just being manipulated by others who just want bring down a powerful guy for political reasons or business competitors

    Clint Eastwood made a fool of himself talking to a chair. Still I have watched many of his movies. And I will keep doing so. I won't boycot him just because I don't agree with political views. A lot of people loved Axl after OIAM. Now they are very disappointed that their hero has other point of view. They still go to see GN'R shows.

    Again only metters how people feel. For them Trump is a guy who cares about keeping a Ford factory in the U.S. Of course those poor people are wrong. Trump just used them and he lie to them. But Madonna and Sean Penn are not going to help Democrats to win the Senate. Maybe Eminem could help. But I wouldn't bet my life on it

    No Henry VIII powers. Thanks to some rebel Tories who decided to join the opposition https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/dec/13/tory-brexit-rebels-inflict-major-defeat-on-theresa-may

    It doesn't matter where they are from. It matters how middle America feel about them. Hollywood celebrities are not seen as regular guys. And they are not. They live in masions in Malibu. A few years ago Clooney's father ran for office. He lost!

    The key is participation. Both parties need big turnout. In Alabama only 40% of eligible voters participated. And that low turn out was actually higher than expected. The Democrats have bigger problems motivating and inspiring people. They need to get rid of Hollywood (Except maybe Alec Balwin) the Clintons and people associated with them. They need some new faces. And they need to focus on many issues not just the few things that make their base happy.

    Trump is claiming he didn't endorse Moore http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/13/_politics-zone-injection/trump-tweet-alabama/index.html

    Yeah but a recount makes sense when the difference is 500 or 1000 votes. There is more than that here. They can do a recount but it won't change the outcome. And Trump himself has conceded. Republicans out there don't want any recount. Because they don't want Moore in the Senate. This is not the Florida mess of the 2000 election.

    In a State like Alabama, a small margin win for a Democrat is huge. And Jones run a smart campaign. He didn't bring Meryl Streep. He brought Charles Barkley, who is from Alabama. Jones didn't call anyone "basket of deplorables" He kept issues like gun control and abortion kinda hidden. He was more focused on the economy. And of course he got great deal of help from his opponent.
