They justify their loses by blaming "racism", rather than their failed ideology. An ideology which surprisingly spawned more victories than sanity would have dictated.
Looking at their platforms there were a few constants- unsubstantiated hatred of President Trump, misinformation regarding policy and a promise to raise taxes.
From any perspective the hatred of President Trump can only be due to his personality, as the economic situation and foreign policy have been just short of excellent. There is much more to be done, and not all of what has been done has been 100% successful, but if there is anything that we have learned about President Trump it's that he is more than willing to correct mistakes.
Misinformation regarding policies i.e. eliminating pre existing conditions from health care are based squarely in the willful ignorance of the progressive minions. As is the fact that many of the winning progressive candidates claimed to dislike policies such as those dealing with illegal aliens yet offered NO solutions. Likewise there were those candidates who offered the dream of big government taking care of their every need.
Let's face it- you want "free" college? Be prepared to for the government to steal over $200,000 from every taxpayer for a standard two year degree. A cost that will only skyrocket once the progressive "higher" educational system gets their greedy hands on it. Of course there are no guarantees that the degree would be worth spit once its obtained either.
Progressives have shielded the university structure from true economic principles for quite some time and probably won't give in anytime soon. Worthless degrees that cost the student a small fortune, outrageous tuitions on degrees that are flooding the market driving down starting salaries and ridiculous in house salaries are all products of a system guaranteed to profit by the government while not being held accountable for their product or its quality.
And to run on a platform blatantly stating that they are going to raise taxes? Why? Well, the only reason I can gather is that they are morons and depend once again on the willful ignorance of their lemming like minions.
The fact is that the economy is booming due to President Trump's policies which include the tax cuts- which were for EVERYONE- not just the wealthy. And part of that provided a record increase of $1,400,000,000.00 in tax revenues.
So anyone who states that the tax cuts were "unjust", "unfair", or "ill-timed" are either stupid or lying, which do you think it is?
So the oxygen deprived progressives now have control of Congress and are promising to stifle the economic growth, halt any forward motion of the Trump administration and allow the overrun of our southern boarder by illegal aliens so they can establish illegal sanctuaries throughout the Country.
And ANYONE who doesn't agree with this destructive, violent and absolutely ignorant ideology is branded a racist or somehow subservient to some fictitious male dominated patriarchy.
That's right, they are now attacking white women, for not thinking the way they do.
If only these morons could see their own reflection in a mirror.
The very statistics they use prove that the ONLY reason a majority of black voters vote for the black candidate is because he or she is black. How moronic is that. They truly believe that democrat voters are so stupid that they would only vote based on the color of someones skin or wether or not they have a penis.
There are those who do, sad but true, on both sides, but I for one hold out hope that for most it is a question of misinformation and social pressure.
Which leads to the "civility" issue.
The fascists of the progressive party, yes that's right, THEY ARE THE FASCISTS, continue to violently oppose anyone who holds a different opinion then they do. What do YOU call it when one group decides what terminology you can use, what phrases you can utter, what ideas you are allowed to hold and then violently attacks someone who doesn't conform?
Terrorist groups like antifa and smash racism DC prance around like they are fighting some social ill plaguing the Country but the facts don't support their assertions nor do they warrant their actions. You wonder how hitler gained control just look to what is going on with these groups.
The criminally incompetent fraud and bully hillary clinton promised civility if you fools gave them Congress. Did you actually think she could offer anything but more of the same?
Not one single progressive leader is going to stand up for you when the terrorists like antifa turn on you.
Not one progressive voted into Congress is going to hold to their promises.
It is ingrained in their flawed ideology- gain control, violently bring communities in line, economically hold society in check.
Maybe, if you're lucky, your grandchildren won't realize what idiotic morons you were.
