Yep, a democrat won due to a Republican Leader in the Senate Mitch McConnell did not want a non establishment man. The establishment spent millions making sure Luther Strange did not win the Primary, which left us with Moore a flawed candidate based on perception promoted by rumors and innuendo. With all that, it was still a tight race.

Trump is toxic.
Bannon is toxic.
Moore is toxic.
The tax bill is toxic.
Net neutrality repeal is toxic.

That is why democrats won and why they have one several other seats across the nation. Hell, since trump was elected Oklahoma has had six special elections for state seats and four of those flipped to Democrat and Oklahoma is redder than Alabama.

Pleasantly surprised by the Democratic win.

I really thought that the same folks who voted for Trump would support Moore no matter what.

Maybe they did? Maybe the opposition that had been a bit detached woke up and decided enough was enough.

If only this will mobilize the rest of the United States sleeping detached and frustrated to rise up and oust those who intend to set the United States back to the 1950ís.

Jones won because the FASCIST 1% wanted a SWAMP Puppet in the Senate.

Does anyone NOT think that it was the Washington Post making Moore's sexual preference for young women the CENTRAL ISSUE of the campaign, that gave Jones a victory??

Ever since the Internet was created it has given the average citizen a platform for expressing their views. It is the ONLY true vehicle of free speech this country has ever had.

The Networks are owned by the UBER RICH, as well as the major newspapers. ACADEMIA has given up freedom of speech and thought to conform to the wishes of the Globalist Oligarchy. Hollywood is corrupted.

It begs the question......why does the US Government want to REGULATE the Internet with "NET NEUTRALITY" when it is the Only "NEUTRAL" institution that we as citizens have???

Is Roy Moore still asking for a recount, or is he off to a mall somewhere?
