Seriously, can the Republic survive?

I debated posting this, but I think it serves to underscore what we're seeing in this country at present. An old high school friend has been sycophantically active in O's campaign for the past 4 years. He is now rabidly dedicating himself to campaigning for control of the House "so Obama can get things done to move the country forward."

Quote:As the reason the R's wanted to take back the Senate AND win the White House, remember Tuesday. So they could say it's okay for insurance companies to cancel you because you get sick. So they can defund Planned Parenthood so they can impart their religion on others. So they can defund PBS because Frontline shows that there are problems in our government. So people like Sheldon Adelson and Mitt Romney and the Koch brothers and the Walton family can cut their income taxes to near zero. Etc., etc., etc.

Sorry, I want to see this country out of a recession. I want to see us fixing our roads. I want to keep the Medicare that I’ve paid into my whole life. I want a supreme court which is not full of fuck-the-middle-class judges. So the R’s tried hard to take it all & damn it, they’re proven to me they don’t deserve the piece they still have. When your boss asks you to tell him one reason why you should keep your job, you better have at least one answer or you don’t deserve to keep it.

I repeatedly asked Linda to tell me something, anything which the House did in the past 2 years which she agreed with. If she can’t then why does she think the House should keep their majority? If she doesn’t know what they have or haven’t done, then she should shut the fuck up and let the adults in the room continue the conversation. Let’s all sing kum bye ya, or let’s get people in the House who do understand compromise and can do something for the American people instead of only for their party.

I'm not quite sure how full control of 3 branches of government fosters any kind of "compromise."

I'm dense. Help me out here. Shrug

I'd vote for him because he's a likely candidate with the skills and know-how to get this country on the right track. If he had won, and did get the country moving in the right direction it would open the door for a more conservative/libertarian candidate to move-in and champion social issues.

I read an article recently that said Obama getting reelected was probably best for the country in the long run. Things are going to collapse no matter who is in office. If it had been Romney in the White House when things went south, the progressives would be able to say Romney/Captialism/Conservatives are to blame. That would guarantee that hardcore progressives would be swept into office.

I'm not saying I agree with the article but I have to say it's got some good points.

It's a valid political strategy. Passive aggression works very well, but it takes longer. Look at some of the most successful movements in history. Ghandi, MLK, Jesus, all practiced passive aggression.

Step back and let your opponent fail and make himself out to be the loser. Many here have said an Obama win would guarantee a return to the conservatives for 2016, but I'm not sure we will make it that far.

Obama and his ilk are dug in like ticks, and it might take fire to get them out of there.

'Cause that's what the 3rd party/write-in voters have done. They preferred to be clever.

You should because Rush hits bullseyes everyday and is nothing what the LSM portrays him to be. They hate him because he's right....as in correct. He exposes them. If you hate him, it's because you've only seen cherry picked, out of context snippets on MSNBC.

Like Romney, who was "protrayed" as a
1. felon
2. Killed somebody's wife
......and of course, he's squeeky clean.

No need to go on, I'm sure you get the picture

I do get the picture, and it's only because I have no opportunity to listen to the radio while I'm working that I don't keep up with Rush. He's pompous and arrogant and self-centered ...but, he's right.

This post is so full of truth it's canon. My girlfriend, AHenshaw hated Rush Limbaugh. She never heard him, never met him, didn't even knew what he looked like. All she knew was she hated him and he was a scum-bag. based on what? Things she heard from she doesn't remember where. They characterize him and the things he says every single day. He must be doing something right for the mainstream media to hate him with such furious energy. After she actually listened to him on the radio, once, she changed her mind about him completely.
