Since Dwight Eisenhower left the presidency in 1961 - 5 different Republicans have been President of the United States. And every single one of them - from Richard Nixon to George W. Bush - have been illegitimate - ascending to the highest office in the land NOT through small-D democratic elections - but instead through fraud and treason. Dont believe me? Watch!

1. This is a rhetorical question, right?

2. Will the US (esp. Democrats) ever try to stop fraud and treason so that we can find out?

8. That should be the point of emphasis.
Why haven't Democrats fought harder to maintain electoral integrity when it is the very foundation of our democracy. Don't tase me bro.

3. How is it that people do not know this? Born in 1953, paid attention.

12. We knew it - that is about the stories but not about the fraud and
treason behind it that was locked away in sealed documents until now. We are also not going to KNOW this regarding this election. All we know is they were obstructionist and that President Obama did not call them on it.

5. The Whole Fucking Electoral System is a FARCE!
Edited on Tue Jul-19-11 11:14 AM by theFrankFactor
It's owned, and anyone that STILL thinks it isn't is rowing with both oars out of the water!

Look at Barack Obama!
Look at the performance of the Democrats!
Look at the 2008 elections
Look at the 2004 elections
Look at the 2000 elections
Shit... JUST LOOK!

Barack Obama is supposed to PROVE that elections matter. It's as if to say "See Progressive and Liberal Americans CAN elect their candidate."

And just what the fuck did they get for their vote?

A guy who said what he needed to say to play the game.

A guy who once in office, larded his cabinet with his real intentions!

A guy who is masterful at feeding all his peeping chicks morsels of "Hope" and then points at the big bad NEVER-LOOSE Republicans for his tepid, tip toeing, capitulations.

Democrats are DESIGNED and MANAGED TO LOSE!

When they win... they LOSE!

Ever the victims, democrats are little more than patsies, shills and excuse makers.

America's NEW Democrats see the victory of Progressive policy as a dangerous move that might anger the Republicans! Republicans? They play to win knowing that the Democratic machine will be there to be their trusty foils. Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and a host of other two-faced players, help to rot and derail Democrat legislation--"Blue Dogs" ENSURE that there can NEVER be a filibuster proof Democratic majority. Honestly, it is a fucking farce!

New Democrats consider anything left of Somalia acceptable, coloring anyone who DARES to call out their tepid, lame sell-outs and endless excuses a RADICAL or better yet... anti-Liberal! LOL!

Here you'll see "Democrats" piss all over Fire Dog Lake, and why? Well let's see, apparently if you advocate for Progressive policy... that is, policy that is more than "better than nothing" well then, YOU are a Republican mole!

It would be hilarious if not for the fact that these views actually UNDERMINE Progressive progress.

It's a fucking scam.

13. If republicans were honest, hardly anyone would vote for them.
They would get the top 1%, the "greedy rich", and they would get that 25% of cranks, misfits, and weirdos that reliably supports right-wing extremism no matter how crazy or anti-American. So let's see, that's 1% plus 25%. How many elections can you win with 26% of the vote?

Of course republicans lie constantly - they have to in order to survive! They are just lucky that there is another 25% or so who are stupid, uninformed, and gullible - the perfect victims for conservative crap. The fact that their benighted supporters are working tirelessly against their own economic interests just makes it that much sweeter for the extremists on the right.
