The US midterm elections are held on November 6, 2018. Federal offices up for election are all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, and the full terms for 33 or 34 of the 100 seats in the Senate. Conventional wisdom has it, that the party in power will lose bigly. A "blue waive" is coming. But is it? Some liberals would rather dispense with elections altogether. 

UPDATE: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey aroused controversy after labeling a Medium article “great” that claimed there’s no “bipartisan way forward” in the United States and that the country is engaged in a “fundamental conflict between two worldviews that must be resolved in short order.” Dorsey shared the Medium article on his personal Twitter account Thursday night, with the accompanying acclaim that it was a “great read.” Author and media consultant Peter Leyden and political commentator Ruy Teixeira argued in the article titled “The Great Lesson of California in America’s New Civil War” that America is already in the midst of a second major domestic conflict of sorts and the way out is for the rest of the country to imitate California.
