On CNN:

Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore appeared on a conspiracy-driven radio show twice in 2011, where he told the hosts in an interview that getting rid of constitutional amendments after the Tenth Amendment would 'eliminate many problems' in the way the US government is structured.

Here is the link:

What a m-o-r-o-n.

Problem is he's running against a Democrat, and many Alabamians would rather vote for Satan himself than a Democrat.  Even if the Republican is a child molester and was censured as a judge twice.

They're demonstrating their "values" really just boil down to choosing up teams and flinging poo. They have no actual values in the sense adults use the term, only in Alternative Facts™ terms--very little intellectual or moral courage if any at all. I'm not sure most of the Deplorables (authoritarians--those who still support the cartoon president not for strategic political reasons, but because they truly adore the knucklehead) really even understand such concepts beyond the level of perhaps an adolescent, and I think that's probably being kind in many or even most cases.

I've followed this with absolutely no surprise.  He was a terrible candidate, with a terrible record of public service, before any allegations were made.  He's still a terrible candidate, with a terrible record of public service.  And he'll be the next Senator from Alabama.

Jim Crow is alive and well - in fact flourishing mightily - in Alabama.  Where else is it this bad?   Don't know

/Hey, that's not the south.

Really.  It is everywhere these days.  Michigan and Pennsylvania are some of the most gerrymandered states.  The republican wins in 2010 did quite a bit to damage the voting access in this country.

Cheers,

Just an FYI, but racial discrimination is not just a Southern thing. Remember when they integrated schools in Boston? That didn't exactly go very smoothly did it?

It was and remains a major problem in this country.  Not everybody discriminates, but a vocal bunch do.

Our current Fearless Leader is a result of backlash about our first Black President.

And the ironic thing is, no matter what he does he will never measure up to Obama as a man of integrity and class. And the same goes for the first ladies.

Melania may be no Michelle Obama, but to her credit, she probably has a lower opinion of the President even than her predecessor.

The one black GOP Senator is promising there will be an ethics investigation of Moore after he gets elected but it takes a 2/3rds vote to expel a Senator so that won't happen.

Remember, if they expel a Senator the Governor of his state can name a replacement to fill the term.  We may see Luther Strange back. ;-)

A Senator hasn't been expelled since 1862, during the civil war.

My predictions:
• Moore will be elected to the Senate by the Alabamians that show up to vote tomorrow. 
• Moore will be initially seated by the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate. 
  (They need his vote to pass their greedy tax "reform" and other bills.) 
• Sooner or later, enough convincing evidence about Moore's behavior will finally persuade the Senate to unseat Moore.
• Alabama's Republican governor will then appoint Luther Strange fill the opening. 
• Republicans will be happy (whether they support Trump or not).
• Democrats will whine and writhe. 
   But they can and will do nothing to stop the Trumpling of American values until the November 2018 elections. 
   By then, so much damage will be done that it will not be repairable in my lifetime.   :cry:

If moore is elected, the the GOP fully loses all credbility and concern of little things like morals and ethics. nothing to unseat him for.

Nope, just the best one they could get Alabama Republicans to vote for.

That's part of it. but the biggest factor was Bill Clinton's selling if the Democrat Party to wall St and abandoning it's traditional base of unions and blue collar workers. It was their realization the party no longer represented them that made Drumpf possible and put him in the White House. That, along with the Russian propaganda attack and the fact Hillary was a terrible candidate.
