What ‘Blue Wave’?

We continue to hear that the “Blue Wave” is coming. Secular progressive liberals who are overwhelmingly Democrats would have us believe that the midterm elections will swing to the Democrats.

I have the same feeling now and in fact to an even greater degree that I had in the run up to the 2016 election. I was quite confident that Donald Trump would prevail and he did. I see no indications of a “Blue Wave” and will predict at this time that it will not happen and conservative Republicans will prevail. There will be a blue wave if you board a large airplane visit the lavatory and flush the toilet. There is your “Blue Wave.”
