Voters took a step beyond the “Conservative Partisan Politics” and the use of religion as a political shield to win elections. Voters stood up for character, fairness, and equality. They took a step toward a repudiation of the right-wing politics advanced by the likes of Steve Bannon. They showed that Trump is a man out of step with working America, that he is disconnected and careless. Just as important, so is Roy Moore.
Thankfully, voters stood up for character, repudiating a man who lied to diffuse the legitimate complaints about his conduct involving a 14-year-old teenage girl. Voters showed that character counts, that the equal and fair treatment of women counts, and that creating fake news to escape responsibility for your conduct won’t work.
The “Clinton-Obama” diversion will no longer work.
This is particularly important in a special election. This election saw low voter turnout, and even with the low voter turnout the election may reflect America’s dissatisfaction with politicians who lie to cover their past…voters are condemning the use of religion as a political tool to assert you have character when you have none. The great deception advanced by Trump, Bannon and Moore is being exposed, and as we move into 2018 voters may show the courage to condemn that great deception, showing they see beyond the political games played by the likes of Trump, Bannon and Moore.
Alabama showed America character counts, regardless of strong partisan feelings
