This year’s midterms are a battle for the majority in the House and Senate, and it’s far from pretty. Everything from the outcome of President Trump’s second term to the possible redistricting in 2020 will all depend on which party gains control of Congress during the upcoming midterm elections.
This election has gone beyond a race between individuals and is instead a race between two parties: Democrat and Republican. Without a doubt, the results of this election will dictate the future of America and its citizens.
Control of the House means control of the American agenda
Let’s be real for a second. This race is critical because both the Democrat and Republican Party have clearly defined agendas that are vastly different from one another.
The Democratic Party, for example, has taken an incredibly lenient position on immigration and social reform; while the Republican Party supports a more stringent position as it pertains to illegal immigrants, abortion, and economic socialism.
With two parties having separate positions that are completely opposite of one another, it’s hard to imagine anyone having the ability to ride the fence on which party they support.
Your Governor is your God
Your governor will have the right and the ability to decide the rules and regulations that you will have to follow in your state. They will have full control over the money that is purposed out for programs that will allow your state, and each city within, to operate and function in a way that will benefit you.
One person, with such power, is not to be taken lightly. Who you select for such a role is pivotal depending on what goals you are attempting to accomplish as a business owner, an employee, or even someone in need of governmental assistance. It makes perfect sense that some states are currently fighting ugly battles to ensure that certain individuals are elected.
In Georgia, Stacey Abrams is now going door to door with Oprah Winfrey in an effort to ensure the support of voters for the upcoming election. In addition to door-to-door campaigning, Oprah has even taken her support of Abrams to the podium by going on a tour throughout Georgia to speak on Abrams behalf.
In Florida, Andrew Gillum has the full support of Hillary Clinton while Ron DeSantis has the backing of President Trump. Big players are coming out to show their support and they are not in the game to lose.
Here’s what’s at stake
All of the governors elected on Tuesday will hold their positions until 2022, meaning they will be in position during the redrawing of legislative and congressional district lines following the 2020 census. If a majority of the states vote for a Democrat for governor, then the Democrats will hold a very firm position of controlling the redistricting process in critical states.
This redistricting can dictate whether the opposing party can ever take control of the House. Just look at the 2010 election that allowed Republicans to control the redistricting process, which assisted in eliminating the Democrats ability to control the majority.
It’s all about power, people. The question is whether the power will support your personal agenda for both you and your family, or will it hinder your ability to progress? As it turns out, it’s your future that is at stake in this election.
