This makes re-shaping the federal judiciary easy regarding justices who will follow the Constitution. In this regard, the Democrats lost the only thing important in this election.
They've Lost It For Quite A While To Come

Explain Georgia for one example! If the Dems let all this slide and especially if they keep Nancy Pelosi and the other geriatric clowns in place running the Party, nothing good will come from their House win! There should have been a lot more than this. How do you expect to get black voters to bother with this rigged waste of time 2 years from now?
Georgia was rigged and still not decided. The GOP lost big in the House. Trump has been muzzled. He can’t do shit to anyone anymore. Next up, calls for impeachment. Don’t think it’s not happening.

Indeed, the general populous spoke loud. There was a clear rebuke of Trumpism.

Problem is, gerrymandering and the general design of our system enables minority rule.

The Dem's need to win a popular vote of 60% or so to win the seats that would give them a clear majority. Trumpets only need 46% or so of the popular vote to have total control.

This could be our downfall as a nation.

Really?

he has the Executive, a more powerful branch of government than ever, the Judicial, which is stacked with wingnuts and a split in Congress with a clear major it in the Senate.

Sounds like he is in as good a shape as any serving president can be after midterms.

Democrats moved the needle, picked up 7 governors, did a great job mobilizing the vote, got rid of felon disenfranchisement in Florida, moved the needle voter registration in Texas, and took the House.

Trump, who has very little in the way of legislative accomplishments with both houses of congress, will have to deal to get anything passed.
He's gonna miss Rubber Stamp Ryan.

An Exercise In Electoral Impotence

Trump Can't Be Tossed Out By The House
And Can't Be Tossed For Anything He Didn't Do While In Office
McConnel Can Table Anything The House Sends
You Constitutional Experts Know That, Right ??
So Impeach Away

Trump Will Keep Making Judicial Appointments
And Will Have A Solid Majority On That Committee
Flake Won't Matter, And Neither Will Collins

You Just Can't Realize How Badly You've Already Lost

The Democrats picked up less than the average number of seats for a mid-term election with a same party president with an approval rating under 50% based on a century of data. The average loss in the Senate has been six seats over the same time period. The Republicans picked up three seats. From a historical perspective, the Democrats went backwards.

It's not happening. Think man.

Ds don't need to take revenge. Sure, it would feel good, but it's time to put country before party. Ds need to get things done. They need to at least attempt to restore some measure of bipartisanship. They need to begin the campaign for 2020 if for no other reason than we can be sure Trump will begin the 2020 campaign today, or tomorrow at the latest.
