And thus starts the downfall of the Republican Party in 2018 and especially 2020. Americans from all over are very angry and upset at what the GOP is doing and the non-answers they are getting. They will not forget that in the next election. But Republicans have no one to blame but themselves for that. They have created this mess for their constituents and now they have to live with the consequences.

"Frustrated crowds have found ways to catch up to some senators and representatives who have shied away from holding public events. Yesterday in Kentucky, swarms of people protested outside ticketed events that GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell attended. In Vista, California, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa did not have an open forum on the books this week, but angry protesters camped outside his office until he came out to talk to them."
"In many ways, the week has been a tour de force of Democratic campaign strategy and grassroots organizing. From running 'missing-person' ads to renting billboards, organizers have used a number of creative methods to draw attention to lawmakers seen as avoiding the public. Lists were circulated detailing where Congress members would be during the week and tips distributed on how best to raise concerns at representatives' town hall meetings."
"Last week, after GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz faced a particularly rambunctious crowd in his Utah district, he tried to dismiss those who came as out-of-towners. So this week, at meetings from Virginia to Colorado, attendees have worn badges with their ZIP codes or held up their driver’s licenses to prove their residency. Another common tactic: green and red signs for people to hold up when they agree or disagree with something said at an event. The colorful visual plays well for the cameras."

Nah, you got it all wrong.

The downfall was the election of 2016, and we heard it over and over again right here on this little forum.

So NOW the downfall is pushed back to 2018 and "especially" 2020?

OK, maybe THIS time they'll get it right.

Cause they sure missed it last time...
