Unfortunately, it DOES matter greatly the number of Rs in the Senate vs the number of Ds. If the Ds take control as we have seen in the last two years, the destruction of the country increases exponentially, even if a particular R is repugnant. The biggest drawback to the two party system. Pretty much NO power resides with the losing party, and all power resides with the winning party. Which is how we got stuck with Pelosi and Schumer calling all the shots. One or more Republicans were less than ideal for just enough voters. Candidates CANNOT be viewed like that, but unfortunately, they certainly are.
Democrats are much more adept at the Big Picture than Republicans. We are too tied up with candidate perfection rather than keeping control of both houses out of the hands of the Democrats even as they morph into mouth breathing radicals.
You are 100% correct in your analysis .
And I will be voting a straight R ticket for the rest of my life...... because IT IS THAT IMPORTANT.
But the truth be told is that R OZ has done a 180 from everything he used to talk about and support.
Example. He now is touting the truth that abortion is murder. When he did abortion programs on TV he always gave wiggle room approval up to certain stages. Like " But there is no heartbeat."
He had a TV show where he said to a pretty little girl, sitting there with her mom and dad... "You remember when mommy and daddy thought you were a boy?" NO I never watched these shows but the video clips have been making their round to discourage GOP... there has to be a shorter way to refer to republicans , then the phony GOP moniker."
Republicans around here do not like OZ. And I can tell you after Trumps endorsement, if Trump runs in 24 people will not have forgotten who he backed.
BUT yes... I will vote for him to at least hopefully get the majority... even though he likely will be another Murkowski and Collins voting so we will still need a good 54 R senators cause 51 will not guarantee good votes
Interesting note that came across AM news about OZ.
He has made a 100 campaign stops across PA since primary in May.
They mostly are into democrat strong hold of the state... or the democrat area of republican voters.
I can tell him there is no way he will win Philadelphia... even though he is campaiging on tightening of the criminals that Fetterman wants to loosen... and the city is on track for so many murders it may well surpass NYC this year... and possibly Chicago.
So I dont know his strategy cause no one around here even has seen an ad from him but just hears comments on MSM local news.
