    They're locked into the House until 2042 if Dems don't win it in 2020, which writes new remaps.
    With 2030 as another census mid-term disaster to go along with 1990 and 2010,
    we're stuck with the TEAs and gridlock for the rest of my life.
    As I wrote, the history of the US is to reject and repel foreign invasion.
    I appreciate the history where you live does not share this past, so it is likely clouding how things are actually viewed here.

    that was just uncovered THIS WEEK..

    the IRS scandel proves otherwise

    your posts are laughable nonsense..
    Why shouldn't the Obama campaign have gone on the attack against Palin? She's an idiot.

    The IRS "scandal" has NOTHING to do with the topic.

    I think you are right. I think the Good Old Boy GOP establishment which has been Va politics for years is on its way out.

    IMO, the real wake up call was missed in the state elections. The Good Ol' Boys left the Va voters with a choice between a crook and a crook. The other crook won, and brought the Lt Gov and AG with him. Cantor was/is part of the establishment. Like most of the country, Va is fed up with more of the same.

    Let's not forget that Virginia voted blue in 2008 and 2012 and they have a Democratic Governor, Lieut. Gov and both Senators are also good guys. The reality in national elections is that except for the south and the bible belt (which combined don't have enough electoral votes to elect a President) the Democrats are in great shape for 2016 which means 2020 too. Consider if Hillary serves 2 terms that Democrats will then have controlled the executive branch for 24 of 32 years...if it were baseball it would be The Yankees dynasty at their peak

    PW4000, is definitely not liked by the conservative crowd around here. They've banned him from this thread and he created it when he replied to another member who tried to use the "truther" slur against him. Check it out earlier in the thread. And, yes. He is difficult to debate against.

    Eric Cantor Dusted in Virginia.

    Gee. They are even feeling this in Los Angeles.

    It says the republican party is dying and the libertarian party is growing.

    It says that there is no difference between a republican or a democrat.

    With the direction our government is headed the Tea Party and the Libertarian party will only get bigger and bigger and bigger.

    It's certainly a nightmare for progressives, republicans and democrats.

    Rock on, Alex Jones.

    It is funny how you get to remain in this thread after you have clearly violated the rules. Where's the moderation of your brand of rule violations? Why don't we see Temp Suspension below our User ID, like we see for PW4000? The question asked was clearly answered and you had no sensible response that could handle it. Instead, you were allowed to continue with your off-topic negativity in a thread that had nothing to do with "truthers." So, you were bringing up a past thread's topic about 911 into this thread about Cantor's ousting - yet, you remain here. Why?

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's primary loss means Congress will soon say goodbye to its only Jewish Republican.
    And not only that; it also means there will likely be no Republicans in Congress who profess to be anything other than a Christian.
    According to data collected by the Pew Forum at the start of the 113th Congress last year, the GOP conference was 69 percent Protestant, 25 percent Catholic, 4 percent Mormon and 1 percent Orthodox Christian.
    Cantor (Va.) was the only member of any other faith on the Republican side in either the House or the Senate -- out of 278 members. There are no non-religious Republicans in Congress either.
    Here's how that looks:
