Forum Post: Why did the Rs lose ?

Posted 1 year ago on Dec. 5, 2012, 7:13 p.m. EST by bensdad (8977)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

Not because
they were against the 99%
they were for the 1%
they were against women
they were for the big corps & banks
they were for voter suppression


THEY LOST BECAUSE A FEW PUBLICALLY ADMITTED THEIR INSANITY So - their move is to shup up the Rs who tell the truth!

AND:

Almost Half of GOP Voters: ACORN Stole It Again!

(Never mind they don't even exist anymore! They stole it anyway!)

It was bad enough when a majority of Republicans were so disinformed after the 2008 election that they thought ACORN stole the election (almost 10 million votes, apparently) for Barack Obama.

Now that ACORN is no more (since early 2010), the massive disinformation campaign that Republicans have been suckered into believing seems to continue nonetheless. Just under a majority of self-identified GOP voters think the non-existent ACORN stole the election again this year for Obama! Those tricky non-existent bastards, apparently, somehow stuffed the ballot box 5.5 million times and never got caught even once!

From Public Policy Polling today, who note that Republicans are "not handling election results well"...

"49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn't exist anymore."

It should be noted, for any of those duped Republicans who may be reading this, that there is no evidence, none, zero, nada, that any vote has ever been stolen in any election either by ACORN or via one of the bad voter registrations submitted by one of its workers (bad registrations which were almost all discovered by ACORN themselves and turned in, along with the rogue worker who submitted them, to authorities.)

For those stooges who are still unconvinced, because they read something somewhere on the Internet about "voter fraud" in 2012, we dispatched with the most popular "massive voter fraud" myths of 2012 over the weekend right here.

Finally, as if all of that isn't pathetic enough, PPP has more sad news for a party which now seems intent on disappearing itself entirely...

could this be why?

The most likely outcome I'd like to see out of this is the following:

-The Republican Party continues its dance into irrelevancy until they basically become a regional Southern party incapable of holding thirty or more Senate seats or more than 30ish percent of the House.

-The Democrats move slightly further right on the economy and become a bit more hawkish and authoritarian than they currently are on balance (the last of the displaced moderates and assorted sane people have to go somewhere, right?).

-The leftmost 40% or so of the Democratic Party splits off and joins the Progressives, forming a party slightly bigger on balance than the Republicans that believe in, among other things:

-Single-payer healthcare

-Strong regulation of the financial markets and big business in general

-A return to far more progressive income tax rates

-A return to major public funding for sustainable energy R&D and implementation of resulting technologies

-A return to pre-PATRIOT Act conceptions of privacy and civil liberties.

The Republicans would eventually fade out with many of their members joining the right wing of the Democrats, while the leftmost end of the new Democratic Party would become our new block of swing voters, creating the Seventh (or Eighth, depending on who's counting) Party System with Democrats and Progressives being the Big Two.

true enough, but we could change those first two..

[-] 3 points by bensdad (8977) 1 year ago

You are too generous
the Rs have lies and ignorance in their blood
I know this sounds almost racist -
but they are the ones who support trickle down & privatization
and they just "voted" in a poll that 49% of the Rs believe that Obama won because Acorn stole the election.
They are the ones w ho beleive the world is 9000 years old & want to seceed
I would let them go - ASAP

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (6885) from Phoenix, AZ 1 year ago

you should read more of my stuff, really, I think I make a very strong case for killing the GOP, but I think you misunderstand my meaning, I think we can bring the fact that the GOP only works for the 1% to people minds and once we do the GOP is dead and with them gone we can split out the Warrens and Sanders and maybe get a actual people's party but first we must make room.

[-] 1 points by bensdad (8977) 1 year ago

Sorry, I wasn't clear - I do read a lot of your stuff
and I very much agree
2014 - get 50 more Ds in the house eliminate all voter supression stop the anti-union movemant


even moderate Ds would vote to restore GS if they knew they or their opponents would not get any money from the banksters

Come express yourself, but in the mean time consider this:

These are not right to works laws, real right to work laws would protect ALL your constitutional rights, you wouldn't have to give up your guns or quit smoking or pee in a bottle as a condition of employment.

[-] -1 points by slizzo (-96) 1 year ago

Rs lost because Ds have been in control of education/indoctrination for decades.

And because people want to be cool.

If only the GOP had run a competent businessman who was a specialist at turning around failing enterprises...

My guess is that it may have something to do with the fact that 49% of Rs polled TODAY believe the election was stolen by ACORN
yes - that ACORN - that does not exist
They probably believe in bigfoot and ancient aliens too

R's lost because they hate minorities, immigrants, women, the poor, the elderly, because they filibustered the jobs bill for vets, & today they defeated a treaty that helps the handicapped.

Their hate is destroying them as hate always does.

The dems did not force repubs to insult, attack all these groups of Americans, I don't have to be a democrat (registered independent) to recognize, racist, sexist, homophobic positions.

And guess what? The decent Americans who make up these groups also recognize those isms and that's why they voted your sorry ass repubs out of office.

Rubio did backtrack on his religious wacko pandering when he 1st said he didn't know how oldthe earth was, now he says it is 4.5 B yearsold.

So true, but the DNC fanboys here don't want to hear that kind of reality. Stuck on stupid, they are sure there is some kind of profound difference between the two corporate-owned political parties.

If the government were to narrow the tax code to 1 page, take out deductons and levy a flat tax, then a lot of lobbyists would be out of work, on both sides of the aisle. Republicans have business lobbyists. Democrats have legal and environmental lobbyists

"Republicans have business lobbyists.": Profits First at all costs, Redistribution to the top 1%, who they cult worship.

"Democrats have legal and environmental lobbyists.": Striving for Truth, Justice and the American Way, in the Pursuit of Happiness and General Welfare for Posterity for the People and the World!

Tax reform in the context of RepubliCons promoting it now (whose lawyers created the current tax code mess), means leaving the Rich to pay as little as possible (record lows) and taking away needed tax breaks for the middleclass, whose spending can actual save our economy if they were not held HOSTAGE!!!

It's for all those highly brain lazy (dunk ass?) (R)epelican'ts that have no idea how to legislate, so they need their tiny hands held.

They need someone to write legislation for them, compliments of Paul Weyrich, and the Kochs. You know Paul? I know you know David and Charles, the owners and operators of modern libe(R)tarian ideology.
