    Amazing double standard between democrats who can get away with anything and republicans who get kicked out of office for stuttering.

    Same thing here in MD. The DC-Washington corridor carries the rest of the state. The only way a Republican is allowed to win is if they are RINO's, like our governor....

    Another reason VA turned blue is that the GOP didn't have any candidate running in 23 districts. Those Dim candidates ran unopposed. That didn't help at all.

    Republicans seem to be doing a great job of not voting. Although Indianapolis is a blue spot in a very red state, the election this week made me wonder where the republicans were because the democrats virtually took over the capital.

    NEWS NOVEMBER 07, 2019
    Gov. Ralph Northam confirms Virginia already 'working on' gun confiscation now that Democrats are in control
    Elections do, indeed, have consequences.


    BRECK DUMAS
    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) of blackface fame boasted this week that his party is ready to implement an array of gun control measures in the commonwealth now that Democrats control all three branches of government, and his administration is already "working on" a plan for confiscating so-called "assault weapons" from law-abiding gun owners.

    The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Northam wants to bring back eight "common-sense" gun control measures that Republicans shot down during a special session in July, prioritizing "universal background checks, banning the sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, restoring the law that limits purchases to one gun a month, and a red flag law that would empower a court to temporarily remove a gun from a person deemed to be a risk to himself or others."

    When asked directly about whether he is supportive of confiscating "assault weapons from gun owners" Northam replied, "That's something I'm working [on] with our secretary of public safety. I'll work with the gun violence activists, and we'll work [on] that. I don't have a definitely plan today."

    Having been born in VA, grown up in VA, and lived a in VA as an adult for 20 years I agree with what you say. I can condense your comment to one word and that word is demographics.

    I grew up in Fairfax County which is now I believe a sanctuary county.

    The ironic thing to me is all of the Asians living in Northern VA who came to the US to avoid communism vote for liberal Dims. Can someone explain this?

    I saw the way things were going 15 years and. and moved to WV. I miss boating on the Chesapeake Bay, but otherwise happy to have left VA.

    Just a matter of time IMHO before the Dims controlling VA start passing restrictive gun control laws.

    So far no democrat that has mentioned confiscation has had the gonads to attempt it. That should be interesting, with the thoughts of a certain city in Massachusetts running through my mind, circa the late 1700s. Of course the communist news network would report it as deranged gunman.

    Every racist joke, comment or just general dumb thing said at the expense of asians, drives them into the arms of the Democrats. This is probably one of the biggest moron moves of the Republicans or conservatives, especially in that part of the country. The liberals themselves are racist, but they openly court groups and at least try to make it seem like they 'respect' them. I don't see any outreach to a good potential voting block (aka the Asians) at all from the Republicans.

    Remember, in California, I see a lot of ASIAN Republican candidates for office and I think that's a good thing being that they're in districts with a lot of Asian voters. They can flip Blue Democrat districts and give the committees and chairmanships to the Republicans, but we still have to many good ole boys who are really dense when it comes to courting ANY minority voter. When Minority voters see the light, they flip Republican but we got too many idiots who either don't give a shit or make it seem like it's 'white people versus everyone else' when in reality, the biggest THREAT we face are from WHITE liberals.

    Voter fraud. Low information voters. Illegal immigrants who outbreed native born peoples. Seriously, have you noticed how many people are NOT having kids? It's crazy.

    To court specific racial populations requires the displaying or racist tendencies and thought which is difficult for a party who wants everyone to be treated the same. You are correct that Democrats and liberals by seeing everyone through the lens of race are bigger racists, but they pass it off by buying each racial group with different racist privileges and benefits. Until people start thinking critically I do not think it is a good idea to start using the same racist tactics as Democrats and liberals.

    The real irony of this is that it's the Dimocrats who do this....then lie to them so they can get their votes.

    The exact same thing is being done to blacks. It was the Dims who founded/started the KKK and, now, they are blaming the KKK on the Repubs....and blacks are buying it.

    Republicans clearly need more outreach to non-white groups.
