The Kristallnacht Election

quote [ The most disturbing thing for me about this year's election is that over 25 percent of my neighbors voted for a neo-Nazi.

Eighty years after that dark night in Europe, America?s midterms were a contest to see how much of the country could be mobilized on a basis of hysteria and mass loathing ]

Beyond a blue wave there was an ugly side of America that was exposed.

Pimp Dennis Hof wins Nevada legislative race after death

quote [ LAS VEGAS (AP) ? Nevada brothel owner and reality TV star Dennis Hof died last month but still won a heavily GOP state legislative district after fashioning himself as a Donald Trump-style Republican candidate. County officials will appoint a Republican to take Hof's place in the state Assembly. He was found dead Oct. 16 after a weekend of parties celebrating his 72nd birthday. Officials are still determining his cause of death... ]

So...yep. It's gotta be those damn illegals sneaking over the border and voting in our elections again.

Who are these people and Why are there so damn many of them?

quote [ Early voting is blowing the doors off this midterm election, but it's unclear what that means for Tuesday

?Something special is going on right now,? said Michael McDonald, a University of Florida political scientist and leading expert on early voting. ?The numbers we?re seeing are unprecedented.?

If the trend continues, he said, turnout could be the highest since 49% of eligible voters cast ballots in the 1966 midterm vote, and may even top 50%, a level of midterm voter participation that hasn?t been seen in more than a century, since the election of 1914. ]

I think it is too late to change anybody's vote.
