2A loses a friend in Kentucky

Governor Matt Bevin, as strong a 2A supporter as there is, loses the governor's race yesterday to Lefty Democrat Andy Beshear by 5000 votes. The primary reason? 30,000 morons voted for a Libertarian candidate. How much of an imbecile do you have to be to vote for a candidate that has zero chance to win and hand an important seat to Democrats?

I lived in KY in the late '90's when Patton was governor. KY can't vote a Republican 2 terms to save their @$$...

I live in CT, and a friend and I were discussing your governor's race this morning. It's really a shame. I'm obviously far disconnected from Kentucky politics, but my friend said that your new governor is toothless since the rest of the seats up for grabs went red. Was she accurate in this?

The rest of the state is GOP but the commie rat can still cause problems.

Republicans were elected across the board other than Dirty Little Andy Beshear for Governor. Hopefully our new AG will harass Beshear at least as much as he harassed Bevin. Plus we have a Republican Legislature. Beshear is very limited in power. The new AG will run against Beshear in 4 years and easily beat him. Heís our first black AG and heís extremely polished as a politician. Iím excited about his future.

The most frustrating thing about this election was that Kentuckians continue to vote for families. Itís a sign of backwardness.

Little Andy Beshear worked for the same opioid drugmaker that KY sued. We got about 10% of what Oklahoma got with Beshear as AG after defending the drugmaker against the previous AG. Not corrupt at all, right?

His AG campaign manager is in prison for embezzling and contributing embezzled proceeds to Beshearís campaign.

Then thereís Andyís daddy, Steve. He left a complete wreck, from the pension debacle to totally screwed up highway and broadband contracts costing us hundreds of millions of dollars.

And Kentuckians turn around and elect Little Andy.

Iím hopefully moving to CO soon and can leave this backwards mess behind me. I know CO has serious issues, but nothing like the corrupt good ole boy system and idiotic voters in Kentucky.

I get it, brother. Fingers crossed that your AG blocks, and makes his life as challenging as possible. Our commie leader outlawed most rifles and standard capacity mags in 2013. I feel your fear.

Kentucky is about as Red as it gets for federal and state offices. The only seat the Democrats hold is governor. Colorado is now Blue since it was overrun by Hispanics along with white Lefties from the West coast.

When a 3rd non-electable person stays in the race it's almost always to steal votes from one side. In this case, seems that the libertarian was a Krat wearing RINO clothes. Apparently it has worked.

IMO the Loosertarian got his votes because Bevin opposes "medical" marijuana so the GOP stoner contingent voted for the Libertarian. Great job stoners.

I have always said that. We are a two party system... voting for a third party will undoubtedly put the wrong party in power.

You must always vote for one of the two, even if neither represents 100% of your ideology. You vote for the one that closes represents your interest.

When will conservatives understand this principle.

Nothing but a bunch of deranged stoners. The Libertarian Party is the biggest fraud on the planet. They could not care less about smaller government as evidenced by the fact they are celebrating a Democrat victory. They just care cannabis legalization even using the fraudulent "medical" marijuana narrative. And obviously their cognitive thinking ability has been degraded from their habit/addiction.

Bevin lost the election because instead being a leader, he tried to be a harsh father.
We're surrounded by states with casino gambling & instead of trying to keep KY money here by enabling casinos here, he stomped all over it. Our state pension system is in a shambles & revenue from casinos would have helped. Add to that he turn the states teachers & their union into a mass of angry hornets, I'm not a bit surprised he lost.
And yes, I did vote for Matt.
Hell, I'd have voted for a bedbug before I'd have voted for Bashear.

Yeah Matt just couldn't get on the **** for free train. Americans do love **** for free and they have been conditioned to believe that is their right now. Part of the 4Ds.

Our Mayoral race is going to end in a runoff between a liberal incombent and an Uber liberal challenger. Never in my life did I think I'd vote for a liberal, but I'm going to have to I think. Especially one who's been such a crappy mayor. It is what it is I suppose.

I fully agree with that third party nonsense but a lot of people just don't get it. Generally a third party candidate seems to pull Republican votes and there is rarely a chance that they can win yet there are always at least a few idiots who will vote for them anyway.

His language alone turned the votes he lost by against him. It probably cost him 50,000 votes. If he had talked like a professional he would have easily won. Instead he vented like a child. He was actually a really good governor. Iím pissed off at him for getting himself beaten.

Agreed. And I'm glad he tried to fix our state pension system but the way he went about it didn't help him at all.

Well welcome to the new world order.

Here in Broward, next year we get to elect a new Sheriff. Both top contenders are democrats. Sheriff Israel, the idiot that got removed is running again. His removal was sustained by the Florida state Senate, when he lost a law suit to reinstate and an appeal in the legislature.

His Governor appointed replacement is also a Democrat. There are also some Republican candidates running but they have a snowflake chance in hell to win. This place is infested with democrats... about 70 of the registered voters are democrats.

Now guess what they are bickering about? They are arguing who is "More Democratic" than the other. It turns out that Sheriff Tony (the Governor appointed replacement) claims he was always registered as a democrat, became a republican on for a short time, and re-registered as a Democrat.

Sheriff Israel claims he was raised a Democrat in NY, then changed to a Republican for a few decades, then registered as a Democrat in Florida just a few months before he ran against Sheriff Lamberti (Republican) in 2012. He is a sly SOB who knew the voters here vote democrat no matter what.

These guys are fighting who is more democratic. Who is the better liberal.

But the irony is that about 80% of the rank and file deputies in the Sheriff's department (has 5000 employees) are Republicans. That is a fact.

The bottom line is that only Democrats win in local elections. Including the office of the Top CLEO, despite the fact the majority of law enforcement here are republicans.

Well, I imagine going up against the organized crime syndicate running our school systems would seriously piss a person off. I get it that he was frustrated and sick of the games. I just wish his wife had helped him keep it in check like my wife would. Iím not share I could have done any better, honestly. I cannot stand the teachers unions. Ingrates.

Suggesting to move out is allowing the cancer to get a foot-hold.
The perhaps better suggestion is, more GOP folks need to move into VA!

You and I know that, but an increasingly large number of the electorate is getting sick and tired of the non-stop shenanigans by BOTH parties. Each side now only exists for one purpose, and that's to either kick or keep the other side out of office. They spend an inordinate amount of time in office doing so, instead of trying to work together on the few things they agree on and finding a way to compromise on the things they don't. Instead it's a perpetual battle to see who crushes who. Hardcore gun owners know that our best chance is to side with the GOP, but a lot of people who don't consider themselves either left-leaning or right-leaning feel they have no decent choices anymore.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

And I believe that, some very sad day, the GOP won't stand up for us hardcore gun owners & 2A supporters anymore ( a party of nothing but Mitt Romney's ).
And yeah, our choices are getting slimmer & slimmer.
