    What does it look like?

    What does it do to the Never Trump group?

    Would that be the end of the endless investigations into Russia collusion?

    Would they legislate instead of litigate?

    Or would it be get back time?

    Thoughts?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    This is an interesting article:

    “What I have recommended to the New York delegation is that you find her a primary opponent and make her a one-term congressperson,” the Democratic lawmaker, who requested anonymity, told The Hill. “You’ve got numerous council people and state legislators who’ve been waiting 20 years for that seat. I’m sure they can find numerous people who want that seat in that district.”​

    Probably would look a lot like it did just 8 months ago when they still had it.

    If they do nothing, it is useless. I would prefer Taylor Swift as a representative, then.

    I don't see how "It's my turn now" is going to play well with this (and the next) generation of Democratic voters.

    Sadly true. "They", barring a few patriots, are thoroughly subverted by the lust for mo' money. I see DC as a portal to Hell, with this inscription written over the entrance: ABANDON HOPE ALL YE WHO ENTER HERE.

    But wasn't then during President Obama's time? So, that could effect how much they could do. Or, of course, they were not functional enough to work with the President to get some kind of good done > for all I know, I don't know.

    But if they get in, will Donald still be in?

    If they get in with a Democratic president . . . it could be like during Barack's time.

    But a different person in as President, in any case, can be different, plus different Republicans in could be different.

    It is possible. It is too early to tell though.

    Except without Paul Ryan at the helm.

    That means that if the GOP did retake the House, they'd have to find an even bigger sycophant to kiss Donald's ring and stroke his ego.

    Hmmm... since there's no rule that says the Speaker of the House has to actually be a member of the House, perhaps McConnell will end up pulling double duty?

    Well, Democrats are now turned off more than before, it seems; so they are likely to make more of an effort to get their candidates into the presidency and the House. Meanwhile, it seems like President Trump has turned off a number of people who voted for him, plus others are supporting him without doing any evaluation, even saying there is nothing wrong, at all, with him.

    But Christians I know never would claim there is nothing at all wrong with them, their own selves; and yet, I seem to be reading that ones claiming to be Bible people are saying there is nothing wrong, at all, with Donald.

    May be they are just people trying to pose as Christians doing this, in order to discredit . . . somebody. By pretending to be Christians and then putting Donald above evaluation . . . this can fool Democrats into thinking Jesus people do not evaluate ourselves and our candidates.

    This could help fool Democrats into thinking a lot of Christians are ok with Donald, without evaluation, and so they had better move their bippies to vote so ones not evaluating won't get their people in.

    So, I can see how now the Democrats who won the popular vote for Hillary could now be more motivated to get their vote out. Meanwhile, ones are not buying the above-question image of Donald, like they did. So, even if they can not vote for a Democrat, because of the matter of someone being ok with killing unborn Americans . . . still they might not be so motivated to vote Republican, if someone is unhumble and therefore anti-Jesus < this matters, too, to say the least.

    Jesus has us loving and caring for any and all people, in any case. And this shows in how we relate with . . . any and all people. It is clear there are ones claiming to be Republican who are not like this, including in how they talk to and about other candidates.

    Unless Trump wins re-election by a significant margin, and that seems most unlikely, then the Dems should win the House again.

    Christians are supposed to PRAY for their Leaders, and the Government under which they live.

    The Bible does not tell Christians to run for or become part of such a system as what is called Political Office, or Government.

    Our position is only to PRAY, then God would be able to move on our behalf, for the things which would benefit both US and our Country.

    It doesn't matter which Political Party is in Office, but it does matter if Gods Children do not Pray for those people God has placed in Office over them.

    The Republicans had both houses and the Presidency for two years and pretty much all they got done was the tax cut.

    Psalm 109:8 seems fitting.

    All true -- because the Bible also says ye cannot serve both God and mammon... and too many Christians chose mammon.

    Think of it as thirty pieces of silver -- adjusted for inflation.

    What is the best piece of legislation to come out of the House in the two years they had control over it?
