Republicans Kind of Suck … Which Is Why They Will Win Huge in November
Because in the Democratic land of epic, mega, ultra, apocalyptic levels of sucking, those who kinda suck are king.

October 20, 2010 - by Frank J. Fleming

(Excerpt:)


So the Democrats sucked. But not just plain old, usual politician sucked, but epic levels of suck where it’s hard to find an analogue in human history that conveys the same level of suckitude. It was sheer incompetence plus arrogance — and those things do not complement each other well. We’re talking sucking that distorts time and space like a black hole.

It’s Godzilla-smashing-through-a-city level of suck — but a really patronizing Godzilla who says you’re just too stupid and hateful to see all the buildings he’s saved or created as he smashes everything apart. Or, to use Obama’s favorite analogy, you have a car stuck in ditch, so you call the mechanic, but the only tool he brings with him is a sledgehammer. And then he smashes your car to pieces and charges you $100,000 for his service. Finally, he calls you racist for complaining. Obama and the Democrats have been so awful, it’s hard for the human brain to even comprehend.

But the Democrats will counter that the Republicans also suck. And while this is true, it’s not really going to help them. As I pointed out before, both a dog incessantly barking and a zombie apocalypse are things that everyone would agree suck. Yet no one during a zombie apocalypse, while hiding out in a boarded up mall, would turn to the other survivors and say, “We don’t want to kill all the zombies; then we’d have to go back to being woken up at night by that annoying dog next door.” But this is the best argument the Democrats can come up with. “Remember how awful the Republicans and Bush were? You hated them. You don’t want to go back to that.” Yes, why would people want to go back to when 6% unemployment was considered high?

People do remember how much the Republicans suck, and they know where it tops out … and that is nowhere near as bad as the Democrats are today. Like with the barking dog, it’s annoying, but you know it’s not going to cause the collapse of civilization as we know it. Not so with the zombie apocalypse; who knows how bad that could get if left to continue? Same with the Democrats and Obama; people have never dealt with anything this horrible their entire lives, and they aren’t that curious to see how much worse it can be.

LMAO! That's a pretty cogent summary.

If you don't vote third party you are an absolute tool.

Granted I've voted for Democrats in the past, but the thing is I learn from my mistakes.

If you really believe our two-party system is not a joke with a bunch of puppets, then you should get back to watching Fox News because Megyn Kelly is on right now ready to enlighten your mind with hard-hitting reporting.

Good.

This is what we need.

The hard-right-libertarians should vote Tea Party.
The far-left anti-capitalists should vote Democratic Socialist
and all the wealthy elites and puppet worshipers can vote for the Fascist party (the combination of Republican and Democrat), or we can just have 4 parties.


Either way, people need to branch away from the two puppet parties that are just shifting bodies being controlled by the same wealthy elites.

It's really sad seeing the same ol' elites in power trying to trick genuine hard-working Americans who have legitimate concerns into voting the same ol' way as every other election just to stop the big bad liberal boogyman.

This is how you take your country back, by voting for a third party, not by voting for the other "Big Team" like a god damn cheerleader.

To be honest, I will vote for any candidate that I feel most closely represents my point of view. However, I believe in the Treebeard adage when it comes to politics, "I'm not altogether on anyone's side because no one is altogther on my side."

Just what we need, voting advice from a Marxist/liberal moron. Alright everyone, WEI has spoken; now go vote for anyone other than the GOP candidate. It can't be that he is SOOOOO concerned about the country he desperately wants to change, it must be for the advancement of Conservatism.;)

[An extraterrestrial robot and spaceship has just landed on earth. The robot steps out of the spaceship...]

"I come in peace," it said, adding after a long moment of further grinding, "take me to your Lizard."

Ford Prefect, of course, had an explanation for this, as he sat with Arthur and watched the nonstop frenetic news reports on television, none of which had anything to say other than to record that the thing had done this amount of damage which was valued at that amount of billions of pounds and had killed this totally other number of people, and then say it again, because the robot was doing nothing more than standing there, swaying very slightly, and emitting short incomprehensible error messages.

"It comes from a very ancient democracy, you see..."

"You mean, it comes from a world of lizards?"

"No," said Ford, who by this time was a little more rational and coherent than he had been, having finally had the coffee forced down him, "nothing so simple. Nothing anything like to straightforward. On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."

"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."

"I did," said ford. "It is."

"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"

"It honestly doesn't occur to them," said Ford. "They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates to the government they want."

"You mean they actually vote for the lizards?"

"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."

"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"

"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard," said Ford, "the wrong lizard might get in. Got any gin?"

"What?"

"I said," said Ford, with an increasing air of urgency creeping into his voice, "have you got any gin?"

"I'll look. Tell me about the lizards."

Ford shrugged again.

"Some people say that the lizards are the best thing that ever happened to them," he said. "They're completely wrong of course, completely and utterly wrong, but someone's got to say it."

I would be a FAR greater supporter of the Tea Party if they weren't just being used as a funnel-system to shoe-in votes for the Republican Party.

O'Donnell has virtually no chance of winning, yet that didn't disuade the Tea Party from supporting her. None of the other candidates are shoe ins either. So how does that correlate with your statement above?

Because O'Donnell is a fluke. She's the crazy type of person the Tea Party people love but most Americans are afraid of.

My comment about funneling is for the majority of the races where it isn't a Tea Party favorite running, but just your run of the mill establishment Republican vs your run of the mill establishment Democrat.

This is the case for the vast majority of the seats up for taking this November.

In these cases, all of the Tea Party people, with lots of fiery enthusiasm will pour their support into the same ol' republican party, rather than a more authentic Tea Party candidate.

I don't agree with the Tea Party but I support their attitude, their enthusiasm, their dedication. It's a shame to see the Tea Party being absorbed and diluted by the Same Ol' Party, because all of the Tea Partiers will vote R simply because they believe D is the boogyman.

I stand by my statement, if the Tea Party want to send a real message, to really make change and take their government back they need to form a firm third party. The same applies to Liberals, they need to get away from the Democrats.

Otherwise we're just gonna get the same two sides of the same bullshit fascist coin.

I'll try saying it a different way. Some Tea party candidates actually defeated established Republicans that probably had a better chance of winning. It's not the Tea Party that is causing the public to sour on democrats. I guess they do make a nice scape goat and are a popular target in your circle.

You seem to be confused here. I'm a member of the Tea Party. The Tea Party was formed to force the GOP back to a more conservative position on fiscal matters and to eliminate the numerous RINOs within the party.

Unlike the Democratic Party, there was room for reform within the GOP. Had that room existed more abundantly in the Democrats, they would have been the target.

The Tea Party may be the bedrock from which a viable third party is born but that is not (and never was) the object. The object was to return the focus of the Republicans to the Republic.

Do you really believe that winning a few primaries is going to shift the overall movement of the party as a whole?

Tea Party folk will readily admit that the Republican party was an utter and absolute failure to live up to their own principles. I agree, the Republican party of recent history has entirely undermined the Tea Party's own philosophy.

So, with that acknowledged, and with the recognition that both major political parties tend to move all together (for proof of this just look at the voting patterns on all major bills passed in the last 2 years), do you really believe that a handful of Tea Party lovelies entering the Republican Party is going to change the massive amount of momentum fueled by unimaginable sums of money?

now...as for forming a third party that takes a huge chunk out of the base of the party...well...that might open their eyes a bit...

Of course I believe it. Why else would I would I work toward that end? Every monumental change in philosophy begins as a small and fragile thing. Everybody in the Tea Party that I work with is thinking in terms of decades, not months.

If you have a good idea for a third party then I encourage you to develop it.
