If the Republican Stream of lies Does Not Convince You to Vote ~ R U BREATHING?!

Day in the Life of Joe Middle-Class Republican Monday, 10 October 2011 16:23 Print PDF

Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and work as advertised.

All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo; His bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.

Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay, medicals benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe’s employer pays these standards because Joe’s employer doesn’t want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he’ll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didn’t think he should loose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

Its noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe’s deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some liberal wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression.

Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his life-time.

Joe is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to dads; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers didn’t want to make rural loans. The house didn’t have electric until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn’t belong and demanded rural electrification. (Those rural Republican’s would still be sitting in the dark)

He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn’t have to. After his visit with dad he gets back in his car for the ride home.

He turns on a radio talk show, the host’s keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. (He doesn’t tell Joe that his beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day) Joe agrees, “We don’t need those big government liberals ruining our lives; after all, I’m a self made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have”.

Lie after lie after lie, designed to confuse the 99%, and misrepresent their 1% agenda.

"As Jamelle Bouie put it on Twitter, “This is a perfect representation of the campaign: an (feeble) old white man arguing (inappropriately foul mouthed) with an imaginary Barack Obama.” ThinkProgress has the highlight reel. http://thinkprogress.org/tag/republican-national-committee-convention/

Mind boggling how reality is stranger than fiction. AND how blatant the Repub lies are! They have no shame!

[-] 0 points by werone (-37) 2 years ago

...and complete impunity! They have very rich and influential friends! In fact, the maniacal 1% who own them also own the TV networks, RW Hate radio, and Fox Lies! So if a lie is told, and nobody hears or see's it, does it exist? Is a saboteur ashamed of a mission accomplished?

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

And I've heard some reports on Lyin' Ryans lies but not nearly the outrage we should.

MSM is afraid of offending right wing 1% corp plutocrats.

So much for the freedom of the press, and independent journalism!

Why we must turnout like the Big$ do!

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

We must challenge all the "parties are the same" lies, All the "no hope in voting" fallacies. All the inaccurate criticism of dems must be challenged.

That's what we face here.

Solidarity

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Not a lot here. But some, periodically. There may be more people here trying to get people to not vote, or not vote dem, so it ain't easy. I can private message you with a list of who to lok out for.

what was so disturbing at the RNC Romney speech, he was receiving major applause for one liners. (actually i have to paraphrase that, I don't remember exact wording)

then he gave a one liner "America is a land that has compassion for elderly and less fortunate" and the convention became silent, no applause, the room fell silent.

Chris Matthews pointed this out on msnbc convention coverage August 30, 2012.

said it was very telling of where the gop stands, because their messaging is all "take care of yourself" dogma.

VIDEO: The Best Of Clint Eastwood’s Surreal Convention Speech

By Jeff Spross on Aug 30, 2012 at 11:13 pm

As it turns out, Clint Eastwood was the mystery speaker tonight at the Republican National Convention. In a strange interlude that was part speech and part comedy bit, the always gruff Eastwood argued with a theoretical Obama purportedly seated in an empty chair, made some off-color jokes, almost forgot to praise Mitt Romney, and finally lead the audience in a repetition of his signature line from the “Dirty Harry” films.

As Jamelle Bouie put it on Twitter, “This is a perfect representation of the campaign: an old white man arguing with an imaginary Barack Obama.” ThinkProgress has the highlight reel. Watch it: http://thinkprogress.org/tag/republican-national-committee-convention/

[-] 0 points by werone (-37) 2 years ago

"We Believe in America" was the motto of the final day of the Republican CONvention. Further illustrating their lies and hypocrisy: as Republicans believe in America so much they offshore and outsource American jobs and stash American money in tax havens like Cayman Islands and Swiss banks. With "Belief" like that, who needs Al Qaeda?
