      I entirely disagree. I'm simply glad that the molester was not elected.

      No but it does make her suspicious and her stepson says she lies and there were no child locks in 1977 and the story doesn't make sense. Her boyfriend would pick her up. He was late, so she goes w judge Moore w out telling the bf who's aggressive. Wouldn't he get mad at her for just leaving him there?
      She's a real good actor.

      Roy Moore was an "outsider" who - without the support of the Republican Party managed to narrowly win the primary and get the nomination (a bit of a repeat of what happened with Trump), so many Republicans did not support him. He was not considered "main stream" indeed many didn't consider him Republican at all. He simply never had strong, broad support from the Republicans of Alabama. Nonetheless, he led in the polls and he likely would have won the election (although perhaps narrowly) because Alabama is a strongly "red" state.

      What derailed all that was the sexual allegations. The ENTIRELY ELECTION became SOLELY about that, as the Democrat stressed. Contrary to the very predictable media "spin", it had nothing to do with Trump or the Republican Party or any issue at all, it was about the sexual allegations. Many Republicans didn't vote for him because they felt he wasn't really Republican (but a wacko) and many more because of the sexual allegations - thus permitting the Democrat to win by a now 1.5%.

      We are at a point in our American culture where all of this has risen to the top. And our culture currently is insisting that allegations make one guilty (the Rule of Law entirely abandoned). We can debate the wisdom of this approach but it's where we are "at" at this moment. And it was one of two reasons why a lot of Republicans in Alabama didn't vote for Moore and thus allowed his opponent to very narrowly win.

      Go for it. No one can take your a personal opinion from you. However, the facts point in a different direction.

      Very true. It's noteworthy (to me) that not a single comment from any Socialist, Democrat activist, NeverTrumper, or anti-American foreigner that I have read anywhere online has taken any position on this matter other than that Roy Moore had to be guilty just because he was accused.

      And not only this, but now that the Democrats have a rare off-year victory under their belts, partially because they were able to outspend the Republican candidate 5 to 1, they are certain to conduct all upcoming election battles using the monies of a few billionaire backers + sexual impropriety allegations. This cannot be good for our country or for democracy.

      When you've got billionaires funding their pet projects on both sides about all you can say is that you get the best democracy money can buy.
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      It's just another reason why small government is better than big government. The smaller the government is the less there is to buy.
