The brutal truth for the GOP
and the conservatives:
The electorate has shifted

Washington Examiner, by Sean Higgins

All though the months leading up to the election, conservative pundits carped over the fact that polls supposedly oversampled Democrats. This argument accounted for President Obama’s small but persistent advantage in the polls. “Unskew” the polls to make them less weighted towards the Democrats, the conservatives said, and Obama’s edge vanishes. Turnout cannot be as pro-Democrat in 2012 as it was in 2008, they argued. Well, now we know that they were wrong. The polls have run almost exactly along with the election results. It turns out they were sampling so many more Democrats …

Yeah, I'm done. If there was a better country to move to, I'd go there. Sadly there isn't. Apparently my countrymen want to live in a socialized state and not a republic anymore. So yeah, I'm done.

So I guess the GOP has not moved Left far enough to win? Good grief, if the Republicans move any more to the Left they will be Democrats, not simply RINO's.

Can't wait to hear Rush. He used to be pretty good at calling these things but this isnt the land of Reagan anymore. He was so wrong about the polls.

Like that old Brit said 200 or so years ago, once the electorate finds out that it can vote itself funds from the public treasury, it's over. It's over.

Except for the shooting. That will come soon.

Fine. That's cool. Today my husband, normally 'the calm one' informed me he wouldn't be working as much, b/c what's the point? We're probably going to sell our whole 401k portfolio in the next couple of weeks. We'll pay a big penalty, but we both know that money will be taken from us by the 47% in the taker class b4 we get it. Might as well fix up our modest home & buy a car we need. We've saved and lived within our means. We stayed married, are raising our kids, and this immoral country has left us behind. Our Catholic church in NC is kicking off a huge drive for the victims of Sandy. Won't be donating to that, let those two Democrat voting states depend on the government they deserve. Let Chris Christie and Bruce Springsteen dry their tears.

Yep, the bottom line here is that the "TAKERS" have "TAKEN OVER".

ps. This country is totally dead, it will have to go through years of death throws but it is dead!

I disagree. A Ronald Reagan type would have won. Romney's mouth provided the fodder for the MSM. Some of us told you so!
He represented what people don't like about Republicans. Rich and clueless.

The Greatest Generation is all but gone and the lessons they left to their children have been lost to the forces of evil and weakness.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
Ronald Reagan
40th president of US (1911 - 2004)

We are there folks. It's happening now and we tried to stop it, but have failed. Our country is now at the point where things will have to get really bad (and they will) before they can get better.

Rush's harangue of Sandra Fluke was a disaster for Mitt and GOP because it allowed, as planned, Obama to be the protector of women's right to choose. While Fluke may not be able to draw crowds, her symbolic value for Obama was far better than the vagina costumes his feminist supporters donned. Same message from Fluke & vaginas, but one was more presentable on stage at the DNC.

Apropos of #1's comment on where to go:
NOWHERE is safe any longer.
The only reason that some countries were able to shake off the shackles of dictatorship was because of big Uncle Sam.

Yesterday, the Country voted to let the world BURN.

Electing Leftists ALWAYS results in ever growing numbers of dead black, brown, yellow and white people.

EVERY TIME.

The electorate can shift back, but people need to be convinced. The Republicans--or a third party--need to stick to their principles, which are backed by facts and logic. The Democrats are all about outcomes and emotion.
The Republicans also need to continue to be the party of moral values. Values voters--ie, evangelicals and other conservative Christians--were ignored this time around. That was a mistake.

Facts and logic have got the way of the buggy whip in this country #11. The last couple of generations have been indoctrinated by the public schools and liberal christian 'churches' that logic and fact is subjective, its more important to have good self esteem and to 'feel good'.

We are following an all to familiar pattern of a once great nation now in decline. We have failed to heed the lessons of history and we are repeating them.

Election campaigns provide an opportunity for a political party to make its case and educate the electorate. It's not that the majority of voters are corrupt; it's that they are ignorant of what's going on. That is the GOP's fault, LSM notwithstanding. Just where did all that PAC money go?

The nation is past the tipping point anticipated for years. When voters realize that they can vote themslves the public purse (they do) when those so inclined exceed half of the electorate (they do), and when an administration is in power that promotes such distribution (just renewed for at least four years), the nation's freedom is at an end. No tweaking of the political message can defeat human selfishness.

As many have said, the takers outnumber the makers. There are two ways to reduce the number of takers, 1) reduce/eliminate gov't handouts or 2) an improvement in the jobs market. We know that neither of those options are possible in the next 4 years so the GOP, and the nation, is sunk.

The worst part (or one of the worst parts) is that James Carville was 100% correct. The takers have a lock on the country for the next 40 years, although if you subtract Obama's first 4, it is only 36 years. Which will steal the remaining years of my life. Yep, America as we knew it is gone.

Most great empires lasted maybe 200 years. The United States made it beyond that number just a little, but even as we speak, it is coming to an end just a surely as Rome did.

Well, it´s Easter time, and that means that the mainstream media and publishing houses can be counted upon to issue de-bunking attacks on orthodox Christianity. The best-publicized of these is Bart Ehrman´s How Jesus Became God. Many by now know at least the outlines of Ehrman´s biography: once a devout Bible-believing evangelical Christian, trained at Wheaton College, the alma mater of Billy Graham, he saw the light and became an agnostic scholar and is now on a mission to undermine the fundamental assumptions of Christianity.In this most recent tome, Ehrman lays out what is actually a very old thesis, going back

   

 



 
Obama shouldn´t embrace
race-rousing Sharpton
Chicago Tribune, by John Kass    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/16/2014 9:23:31 AM     Post Reply
It was disappointing the other day to see President Barack Obama embracing the vulgar race hustler Al Sharpton. President Obama once eloquently confronted race in a memorable speech in Philadelphia in 2008. That speech was remarkable and honest and, to borrow a favorite word of the political left that still fawns over him, it was nuanced. But there was nothing particularly remarkable about Obama standing next to the preening Sharpton, speaking in New York to his National Action Network. Except that Obama expertly used a message of victimization to begin energizing black voters, who provide the electoral foundation for the Democratic Party.

Meet Sylvia Burwell, the

The replacement of Kathleen Sebelius by Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the Secretary of Health and Human Services has been portrayed by the legacy “news” media as a new lease on life for Obamacare. The party line is that Sebelius was mortally wounded by GOP exploitation of a single uncharacteristic mistake—the botched rollout of Healthcare.gov—while Burwell is a brilliant Beltway veteran unsullied by controversy and possessing the very administrative skills needed to save Obama’s “signature domestic achievement.” (snip) This tale fails to conform to the facts, however.

No, The Obamacare Debate

Last Tuesday, our President swaggered into the Rose Garden to announce that 7.1 million people have signed up for health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges and that all further argument about the future of his “signature domestic achievement” was pointless: “The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.” The problem with this claim is that no one with a basic grasp of arithmetic believes Obama’s enrollment figures, only about a quarter of the electorate supports his “reform” law, and it is still the target of multiple lawsuits challenging its constitutionality.

Obamacare:They Shoot Horses

A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. (snip) The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” (snip) When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care.

One of the reasons Clarence Thomas gives for the studious silence he maintains during Supreme Court hearings is that his fellow justices have shown an increasing tendency to talk too much during oral arguments, thus preventing advocates from presenting their arguments coherently. Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right. Paul D. Clement, who appeared on behalf of the two companies challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate, was repeatedly interrupted and badgered by justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.

Why Obama Scares Me

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
