Evaluating the Results of the 2018 Midterm Elections

Will the Democrats legislate or investigate?

By Dr. Larry Fedewa (November 10, 2018)

While some contests remain somewhat questionable at this time after the midterm election of 2018, there are some conclusions that seem reasonably certain, even now.

  1. The Democrat Party has been re-established as a legitimate representative of its nominal constituency.
  1. The Republican party has been united under the leadership of the current President.

Up until now, there have really been four partisan cliques in Congress: pro-Trump and anti-Trump Republicans, and “traditional” and far-left Democrats. This election seems to have united the Republicans, partially by the dominant role played by Mr. Trump in the campaign and partially by the retirement of so many of his Republican dissidents.

On the Democrat side, there have been several voices, ranging from the familiar Democrat positions to the socialist positions of the Bernie Sanders clique to the very “far left” of Maxine Waters and her advocates, especially among the newer members of Democratic caucuses. This election weeded out most of the aspiring extremists and re-asserted the Democrat electorate’s preference for the more traditional Democrats. Thus, the influence of “crazy Democrats” has been likewise diminished to some extent by the will of the people. The “crazy Democrats” appear to be disproportionately represented in both houses of Congress compared to the centrist wing of the party. Keep Reading

Why Vote on Tuesday?

The U.S. Congress must have operational majorities to function

by Dr. Larry Fedewa (November 3, 2018)                 

The USA is facing again a mid-term election on Tuesday. This is being called the most important mid-term election in our lifetime. Why is it important?

This mid-term is important because it may be our last effort to save our Congress’ role in our government. The Congress is the second of our three branches of government. With the Executive Branch and the Judiciary, the Congress was designed to be a vital player in the checks and balances by which our republic is governed. The most important role of the Congress is to limit the ability of either of the other branches to institute laws or regulations which unduly limit the freedoms of the people. Every single Congressman and Senator is elected personally by the people. Keep Reading

Dr. Larry Show with Bob Livingston (10/31/2018)

Former Congressman, author, lobbyist

Robert L. Livingston was elected to the United States House of Representatives in a special election in 1977 – the first Republican to represent Louisiana’s First Congressional District in 102 years. He was re-elected to eleven successive two-year terms.  In 1998, he was chosen by his peers to serve as Speaker-designate for the 106th Congress, but resigned for personal reasons, calling on President Bill Clinton to do the same.

 

Following his departure from Congress in February 1999, Mr. Livingston established a successful lobbying firm known as The Livingston Group in both Washington, DC and in New Orleans, LA.    His recently published memoir, The Windmill Chaser, is receiving enthusiastic acclaim.
