There are a handful of Federal, State, and Special elections to look forward to. :scared: :lol:


Despite Trump's lukewarm endorsement of Luther Strange, Strange lost to Roy Moore yesterday the Alabama Republican Senate Primary.

Was removed from the state Supreme Court for refusing to obey binding rulings — twice — including most recently for refusing to obey the federal legalization of same-sex marriage

Fomented the President Obama birth conspiracy theory (which, unlike President Trump, he still hasn't renounced)

Suggested Obama is a secret Muslim in a video released by his foundation

Said homosexuality should be illegal (but clarified that he doesn't think gays should be killed)

Said as recently as this week that certain parts of America are under sharia law

Called Islam a “false religion”

Said Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison (R-Minn.) shouldn't be allowed in Congress

Suggested 9/11 was punishment for godlessness in America, and said the same of shootings and killings

Denied custody of three children to a woman in a lesbian relationship, calling her relationship “an inherent evil against which children must be protected”
