Forum Post: It's Amusing to Watch the Republican Puppet Masters Shove Mit Romney Down Voters Throats

Posted 2 years ago on Jan. 5, 2012, 12:08 a.m. EST by GypsyKing (9780)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

The powers that run the Republican Party decided a long time ago that the Republican nominee was going to be Mit Romney. It's amusing to watch the way they shove him down the throats of the gullible and ever compliant Republican Voter! It's good for a few cheap chuckles, if you find yourself in front of the idiot box, anyway. You might give it a try.

Why do Republicans even try?

Have the Republicans ever fixed anything (except elections)? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jocRd-aajW0 [right click]

We had an industrialized economy in the United States until private enterprise outsourced our major manufacturing with the US Chamber of Commerce and Republican Party's blessings.

The 3 Stooges who broke our economy are proof the Republicans should get out of government and politics.

The Republicans didn’t see a problem with the Gramm Leach Bliley law when it was written. Most Democrats didn’t either. Now Republicans aren’t doing anything to repair the damage and prevent recurrences. Democrats aren’t doing enough.

[-] 2 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

Well, as I recall Reagan was at least as much of a fool. Before his second term they probably had to tie his shoes for him, and he was elected twice. Look at the polls, the election is close.

Your poorly-spelled observation ignores the obvious, which is that IT DOES NOT MATTER WHO WINS THE ELECTION. At the strategic policy level, nothing changed in 2008, nothing changed in 2010, and nothing will change in 2012. Not as a result of "elections", anyway...

You really are determined that people don't vote. If you really believed it didn't matter than I doubt you would be spending all this effort, and all these bold, dictatorial letters, on telling us so. See any contradiction there? Well I do.

I'm pretty much fed-up with you and your bold-lettered bullshit that manages to be VERY transparent.

You know? ( sorry epa as I do agree with you ) It is funny/strange that the repubs are committing political suicide. I mean they "have" to know that they are daily cutting their own throats. So - WTF????????????

[-] 3 points by epa1nter (4650) from Rutherford, NJ 2 years ago

The primary voters are the die-hard, hard core. The entire party is completely nuts. Who would they have ultimately nominated? Was there a single one that didn't compete to be the MOST unreasonable? Who did they have? Born-again Santorum? Cowboy Perry? They were loose canons, and the base eventually understood it. They know that Romney has the best shot of that whole crazy bunch, and they are right. He is already raising more money from his business buddies, and Wall Street than Obama. He is expected to raise about one BILLION dollars, and his Super PAC already has something like 50 some odd million dollars to spend on him.

He is their best shot, because he is the closest to the 1%.

Obama has, contrary to the assertions by some fools here, alienated much of Wall Street because he has insistently tried to reign in their excesses, failing primarily because of Congress. FOr all his compromises, he is still not trying to make them even more money. He wants to let the Bush Tax Break expire, and has tried to do so consistently, inly trading their continuation in order to get other legislation passed, or to avert a government default.

Right now, as I type, polls indicate that Romney is running dead even with Obama. With the bigger war chest that is anticipated, Romney now looks like the likely winner. So they are hardly cutting their own throat with Romney. If anything, the consensus about him is that he is not conservative (AKA crazy) enough for them, but was simply the most electable.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (34566) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Again well reasoned and pragmatic analysis. But this time I believe ( I believe ) that they have gone too far and money for the 1st (?) time will not buy the election.

[-] 2 points by epa1nter (4650) from Rutherford, NJ 2 years ago

I really hope you're right, but the polls are not encouraging. There is also a second worry. Many economist, looking at the numbers, are predicting that the economy will stall again in the months leading to the election, and bad economic news is the single greatest indicator of a loss by the incumbent.

It make calls from the left to effectively boycott the election even more distressingly dangerous.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (34566) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

All the more reason why this ( these ) movement (s) against corruption is so important. At no other time in history of this country have things been so bad for so long with incredibly visible villains in action. At no other time has the media been so muzzled. At no other time has the general public had such a complete and far reaching tool of communication and research as the internet and PC's. We have to make the difference and we are beginning to Hence the troll attacks constant and sticking to their talking point of division and distraction.

We must continue as we have been doing and work even harder to promote unity in common cause.

The people that fund these elections dont care about the letter after the name, as long as its D or R. Anything else is a threat to them.

Obama is hte perfect face for them. He's bombed 6 nations in three years, and nary a peep from the public. He's given the corporations and banks bailouts. A few peeps. He's forcing us to buy things from corrupted oligopolies, a few peeps there too.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (34566) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

You are so close to being correct. It is not Obama it is the special interests and their hold on government. They have that hold because to this day we have not risen-up and taken it away from them. So it is truly not a matter of politics it is truly a matter of issues and non-involvement by the public.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

Its no conspiracy. In a nation of 300m they could only find freakin Mitt Romney? There are plenty of more competent Republicans that are running, but they give the nod to Mittens?

It was always going to be Obama beating Romney. You can bet your house on it. These things are hard to see ahead of time if you just think for yourself.

[-] 2 points by epa1nter (4650) from Rutherford, NJ 2 years ago

More competent? Who? Name one. Except for Huntsman, who wasn't extreme enough for the primary voters, those who are the more die-hard zealots, no one was doing anything other than competing for how insane and extreme they could be.

Romney is disliked by the hard core primary voting base, not because he is the least competent, but the least CONSERVATIVE. He has edged out his competition because he can raise the most money and is therefore the most electable. He is expected to raise one billion dollars for his campaign. Obama, because he has tried to reign in the greatest excesses of the 1% has instead made enemies, and is not raising money nearly as quickly, or getting the big corporate checks.

And the latest polls show that Romney and Obama are running absolutely even, 46% to 46%. Polls with Santorum, Perry, and the entire rest of the field showed Obama ahead, handily.

So the Republican die-hard primary voters, and the moneyed backers, far from "throwing" the election, are fielding their best candidate in terms of being able to win the election.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

Wow, this is even more of a hack job than usual, even for you EPA!

"Obama, because he has tried to reign in the greatest excesses of the 1% has instead made enemies, and is not raising money nearly as quickly, or getting the big corporate checks."- you mean like not ending the oil subsidies (gift to oil companies), forcing the people to buy from corrupted ins companies (gift to ins cartel) and not holding anyone accountable in the finance world, along with catering to WallSt ( gift for the banks)... Those are the big three, and he has taken care of all three of them.

Of course the polls are going to show that. You think they want a Riot?

Romney is a fuckin idiot. He proves it daily. And he is getting shoved down the peoples throats because this election is a fuckin joke.

[-] 3 points by epa1nter (4650) from Rutherford, NJ 2 years ago

Hello? Who tried to end those subsidies, and who blocked the vote on it? Do you even know? (HInt: there is an (R) after their names.)

Obama signed Dodd/Frank, an admittedly half assed law. But who fought against it, despite the fact that it had no teeth? Who took whatever little power the bill had out before they agree to vote for it? (HInt: there is an (R) after their names.)

Do you really think the insurance companies are so very pleased? Did you miss the part of the bill that placed legal limits on their profits? Did you miss the part where they would be forced to accept people with pre-existing conditions, people that cost them money? Did you miss the part in which they would be prohibited from dropping a client because he got sick as they are now allowed to do, or raise their premiums as a result of illness? Your hatred of the mandate is pure Libertardian shit.

Romney is a fucking joke, I agree. But the others in the field were even more so. He can raise the money (and is doing so hand over fist) and has all of his wall Street buddies from Baine Capital behind him. You said he was the least competent. I asked to name one who wasn't. What is your answer? I doubt you have one, because they are ALL certifiable.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

Oil subsidy vote in the Senate: 51-47. If the subsidies are there, its because they want them there. Total sell out stuff.

What took the teeth out of DoddFrank was the flash crash. Bankers made it clear who has hte power against these weaklings.

Insurance companies love it, are you kidding me? The big ones are going to get to drown out the little ones, and this is straight from the mouths of people I know in the business. Check this link from MSNBC, it puts it in persepctive- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TNfQjkegak&feature=related

I posted some other people below that still currently have more support than Romney.

[-] 2 points by epa1nter (4650) from Rutherford, NJ 2 years ago

"If the subsidies are there, its because they want them there."

WHO is THEY? Define your terms.

"What took the teeth out of DoddFrank was the flash crash. Bankers....."

The question was WHO? Not what. WHO did the work for those bankers? WHO followed their orders to take away what few teeth the law had?

The Repellicants fought the health care bill tooth and nail. Was it on account of their record of protecting the man in the street against corporations? Hahaha. Sure, that's right. What sparked the moron Tea Partiers, the most extreme wing of the "no taxes for the wealthy" Repellicant party? Did Dick Army organize the movement because it was GOOD for business? Are you kidding me? The insurance companies will continue to make money, but not as much. The reason for the mandate is so that they won't go bankrupt if they cover 30 MILLION MORE people. But other businesses hate it with a passion, because they will be MANDATED to provide insurance, and people can more easily QUIT THEIR JOBS because they will no longer be ENSLAVED by the reality that they will lose their insurance if they go. (Do you support slavery?) But the insurance companies will also make SMALLER profits, since they are now regulated by LAW as to the LIMIT of how much they can make.

As to your posts below, who do you blame for HUnstamn, Johnson, or that idiot Roemer's defeat? Guess what? It wasn't due to some central committee deciding to "throw" the race. Your assertion is absurd in its face. It was the republican ELECTORATE. It is called DEMOCRACY. The problem is the Republicans have become so exteme, particularly in terms of voters who come out for caucuses and primaries, that only the MOST extreme made it past the first few months of caucuses. Romney only survived by how much he could outspend them. Otherwise we would see an even crazier idiot like Santorum or Perry winning the primary. In that case Obama WOULD win, and easily.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

This Democracy is not a democracy, its a sham. Or we wouldnt be on this site, because OWS would not exist.

Republicans did fight the bill, which is funny because not too long ago they suggested the same thing. Im assuming you didnt watch the video. Ins companies are going to continue to post record profits, and now they are guaranteed customers, so there is absolutely zero reason to do whats best for me and you.

"They" are the government. The ones in bed with oil, banks and insurance. Its been those three running them for a long long time.

No one knows specifically who was to blame for the flash crash, because there was no decent investigation into it. Because Wall st runs DC, not the other way around.

Just like with Hillary and Obama. Almost everyone wanted Hillary. Then all of a sudden over a few weeks, Obama had the nod and Hillary was a distant memory. I helped set up a speaking engagement for her one time, way better leader than Obama. "Polls" you see on MSM are just used to sway public opinion, get people to fall in line with whatever scenario they want.

[-] 3 points by epa1nter (4650) from Rutherford, NJ 2 years ago

""They" are the government"

And THAT is precisely your fallacy. The government as a whole did NOT vote to support oil subsidies. In fact the MAJORITY of the Senate voted to END THEM. The Republicans SPECIFICALLY, made sure the measure failed. It was not some agreement between the two parties, it was ONE PARTY ALONE. You actually have to look at WHO voted how. You can't, by any stretch of reason or logic, place equal, indeed any, blame on those people who did the RIGHT thing, with those people who did wrong. Your suggestion that someone who votes for something is the same as someone who votes AGAINST it is head-spinningly absurd.

Regarding your assessment of Ms Clinton's and Mr. Obama's poll numbers, when did "almost everyone" want Ms. Clinton?. They ran neck and neck throughout most of the primaries. It may have been different in Tampa, but nationwide it was a close primary from very early on. The polling numbers, at least those of Gallup and the New York Times proved very accurate all the way through. But once again you are suggesting some sort of conspiracy. It is really bizarre tin foil hat wearing stuff.

The latest polls were simple. A couple of thousand random people from all over the country were called and asked two questions: 1.) Do you plan to vote in the upcoming presidential election? 2.) Who do you plan to vote for? Then the numbers were added up. How NEFARIOUS!

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

5 Dems voted to keep them going, and 1 Repub voted to end them.

Im saying that the polls are almost always bullshit, when you are out in the people doing this stuff, you know who they all want. The polls are so easily manipulated its not even funny.

Do it yourself, take some time today and call people and ask them who they want to run for the Republican nomination.

[-] 1 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

Thank you for pointing out what should be obvious. No, the two parties aren't exactly alike . . . duh.

[-] 2 points by epa1nter (4650) from Rutherford, NJ 2 years ago

REply to your post below:

5 Dems voted to keep them going? Nearly FIFTY voted to end them.

ALL but ONE rep voted to keep them. How on earth do you translate that into one big collective "Them"? Obviously the parties voted nearly completely (again, not absolutely, but nearly so) differently. They are NOT the same.

Some polls are easily manipulated, others aren't And if you look at several sources and they come up with the same results using different methods, you can be,as the scientists say, confident ion the accuracy of the results.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

They always keep it close, to keep the sheep believing. The gov has been taking our money and giving it to the oil companies for decades. The oil companies fund both parties.

It came up for the vote. It didnt pass. We can go into conspiracies on why all day and night. Bottom line. the duopoly made sure it didnt pass. It never will, as long as its only D and R in there.

Get some good decent people in there outside the scam and we have a chance. Until then, expect more of the same.

It's been fun fun fun to watch. Romney is the most reasonable out of the bunch of the candidates by a fairly large margin, which makes him the most electable of the pack if you put him on the national stage. That very trait also means that the conservative base is essentially rifling through the back of the closet trying on candidates willy-nilly in an attempt to find someone who's both far-right and electable. It's not working; Perry's done, Bachmann's done, Cain is beyond done, Santorum gave it his all in Iowa and just missed it (at the expense of New Hampshire by an obscene number of percentage points), and Paul's isolationism is seriously going to cost him down the line. I can't see Gingrich getting the nomination, but I can definitely see him sticking around just long enough to splinter the party and ruin Romney's chances at the White House. Ladies, gentlemen, and children of all ages, welcome to the Republican Party Circus!

American Elections: False Choices Hiding Other False Choices

The American elections perpetually televised by our Kleptocracy-controlled media are a smokescreen of false choices distracting attention from even more false choices. At the presidential level and likely others, our election results are predetermined: If not by the billions poured into brainwashing voters through the media, then by rigging the voting machines and if necessary having a tainted judiciary overrule recounts:

Psywar: The Real Battlefield is Your Mind http://www.openfilm.com/videos/psywar

Hacking Democracy http://www.hulu.com/watch/192687/hacking-democracy

Peace! http://www.hulu.com/watch/177439/peace

This Orwellian subterfuge distracts the attention of the Sheeple from other false choices that have far more impact than which corporate puppet gets to sit in the Oval Office for four years. Those choices currently include: the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA) - a loss of real freedoms in return for protection from fabricated threats; the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA) - Internet censorship disguised as intellectual property protection; and the Keystone XL Pipeline Project - which will give us dirty energy and ditch-digging jobs at an ecological cost that may include the main water supply for the American Heartland - approval for which was accelerated by a clause buried in the recent Payroll Tax Cut legislation that received bipartisan praise. This deceptive spin and doublespeak has been going on for years, and will continue at an ever-accelerating pace now that Corporate Fascist Puppet President Barack Hussein Obama signed away ou! r Bill of Rights on New Year's Eve, while we were watching balls drop and he was in Hawaii, about as far away as he could be from the uprising of an angry citizenry that never materialized...

IT IS NO COINCIDENCE THAT OF THE LAST 14 U.S. PRESIDENTS, 7 HAVE BEEN DEMOCRATS AND 7 HAVE BEEN REPUBLICANS.

Mainstream media focuses on America's two-year election cycles as if who wins or loses in the swinging of the pendulum was a matter of life or death, when in fact even at the Presidential level it makes no more difference than the outcomes of Monday Night Football, American Idol, Dancing With The Stars, Hillbilly Handfishing, the trial of Michael Jackson's doctor, or the latest Kardashian crisis. Our elections are staged to give Sheeple the illusion of control so they will (a) vent their frustrations and expend their energy, emotions and resources supporting or attacking the Puppet on the Left hand or the Puppet on the Right, and consequently (b) never recognize and challenge the common omnipotent Puppetmaster. As long as corporations own the politicians, it's futile to believe we can "CHANGE" things with our votes.

NO MORE LEFT. NO MORE RIGHT. TIME TO UNITE. STAND AND FIGHT!
