And here's another reminder from Egbertowillies:



Now many of our Christians have what I call the ‘goo-goo syndrome.’ Good government. They want everybody to vote. I don’t want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of people. They never have been from the beginning of our country, and they are not now. As a matter of fact our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down. ~ Paul Weyrich, 1980

Sounds like a conspiracy to overturn the rights of millions of Americans.

By co-founder of the Heritage Foundation, involved in the creation of ALEC, the Moral Majority, the Council for National Policy, the Krieble Institute, likely more.

And their plan to end the liberal influence through disenfranchising Democrats and minorites, consistently carried out by ruthless GOP operatives with a religious fanaticism which has never cared about or honored ethics, laws or rules. Which democracy requires.

Why would it, since they hate democracy and see it as evil, want government to serve their interests only and like the Confederacy, do not believe in the most powerful tenet of the Founding Fathers that they worked to create?

Such as the ideal all men are created equal:


As Mankind becomes more liberal, they will be more apt to allow that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protections of civil government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations of justice and liberality. ~ George Washington

This is what we're up against. To fail to unify would be fatal.

And we still have people who say there is no difference between the two parties?


I think these guys have a plan. What do you think?




On that same subject, from Egbertowillie's thread:

Very discouraging. Tom Delay's permanent Republican majority savaged the USA and TX at the same time

And that horrible sentiment:

This is done with religious zeal by GOP fanatics. And they say there is no difference between the two parties?


Thanks, Egberto, once again you are so close to what is happening.

Yes, a big blue wave!



Tears of joy. Markey is just what the Senate needs!



One more scene from Boston Strong!

And the Donkey they rode in on, LOL!







Indeed, they have given us all many gifts!

More celebrations. From the state that really gave meaning to the Fourth of July:



When there's trouble, you gotta know who has your back, instead of this guy:




Markey Wins! Thanks Massachusetts!





Posted for our great BOG members in MA!

You know who you are!!


Illuminating to see to whom the rights of me and those I care about don't mean a hill of beans.

It was said that 2012 would be a pivotal year when the division between the haves and have-nots would come to a head.

It had been building, allegedly, since 2010, with many revelations necessary for a cleansing, that some might not survive, with people aligning themselves in the years up to 2012. It hasn't stopped, its continuing, as it should.

Not all the revealing was last year and we can see things much more clearly now as to who our allies are. Sad and liberating as always, but it's better to have the truth than maintain illusions of friendship from those who try to sabotage everything one does.



I expect to see more of this. I can't explain it very well. I know that sounds like woo, but I've found it just is.
