You know who really won tonight? Libertarians. We got the gridlock we were hoping for, and sent our message to the Republican party.
The same thing was said in 1996. The surface hasn't changed, but the message is clear. The GOP needs to change their approach, perhaps radically. This election should have been a slam dunk for them if they understood what a 21st-century America looks like at all. Guess what? The US is running out of white males, who seem to be the only group that Republicans think matter.
