    Now we know why people avoid running for political office. Most people don’t want to get shit on.

      Neither candidate had the qualifications to be or become a notable "law maker"... Neither were or are great leaders that could bring the right elements together to enact positive change for those they represent.

      Both had significant backing from the political establishment they represented and both had marketable personality, fame, or aspects that drew people to like them for whatever reason.

      People fear change so much that they will give their money and votes to something that they think they are a part of. Even if that representative will either continue the hardship brought by government abuse or make it worse... Folks blindly follow the candidate/party they think they align with.

      It's a baffing and sad prospect...

        Even taking all the points Ford, Nitro, Nickd and Zah made into account...man, fuck me as to why it went down to the wire. Particularly as the campaign in the general went on.

        Dunno if it was Trump's endorsement and enough Republican voters deciding to hold firm despite the accrual of negative press reports re: Walker's past and the dumb things he said on a daily basis.

        To me, the Democrats will obviously celebrate Warnock's runoff election victory result, but it isn't saying much for Warnock that such a flawed opponent gave him such a run for the money.
        Scramby eggs and bacon.

          it just shows how partisan politics really is. People support their team. Not individuals. Both candidates were weak. Warnock is a creep.

            George Washington warned about forming political parties for the reason we see the results of now. We became Republicans and Democrats instead of Americans. You divide a country you can conquer it.

              What’s going to make things go tits up is no accountability. You can’t have massive corruption and not eventually end up beached on the rocks. You have to have a rudder of law and order or you are in trouble.
