WHY BE A REPUBLICAN?

Baits OutBaits Out Posts: 12,328 AG
Though as a lifelong Libertarian/Tea Party type, I am still currently registered as a Republican . . . mainly now to be privy to their current inside communications and thinking.

The time is growing shorter and shorter for Rubio (for instance) to get his spine strengthened and move up to the moral and ethical high ground to take a firm patriotic position like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul in an attempt to save our country from the increasing and encroaching march of the hungry hoards of socialists looters, et el, leading America to be another obedient ant colony specie on this planet.

His family, kids and grand kids, mine, and yours too are all at stake.

Or, he may be playing his cards right and now choosing to take orders from the string pullers in The New World Order?

Will have to wait and see?

Or maybe, to take a larger leap, the grays are actually on our side and will show up at the last minute to save us?

Currently, most of the Pubs are a bunch of hollow old weenies who take false refuse in their gated country clubs, with the loud happy dancing music playing to mask dark dirges reflecting current realities.

They stand for nothing but past memories of former greatness and power, and have set themselves up as easy current targets for the many paid knee-jerk socialist trolls who happily play them for daffy old fools.

They shall now always lose against the “low class” Dems who have wisely chosen to strongly align with that much larger block (with increasing numbers) of ignorant delusional ones who have found a happy meal ticket and prefer to vote for a living rather than actually work -- little though do they know how historically short their silly dream is and how quickly it shall be abruptly extinguished with death and destruction for most.

    The scariest thing to republican's is the thought of splitting the vote as in Ross Perot when he took 1 of 5 votes from Bush 41. I hope a 3rd party TEA & Libertarian eclipses the GOP sooner than later.

    America needs a candidate to call the inaccurate, not so factual speaking politicians of the left, BLATANT LIARS!

    I finally deregistered as a republican and became an indepedent in '03 after the 2nd invasion of Iraq.

    Events steadily worsened since then.

    The GOP's inherent dishonesty, its inability to win the wars that they start, its dismaying reluctance and utter ineptitude at regulating financial institutions have now produced two thorough trouncings by a feeble and flawed opponent at the national level.

    Perhaps after one or two more such drubbings, then maybe we can start to clean out the discredited neocon draft dodging blowhards, the money worshiping globalists and Wall St malignancies, the loud mouthed abortion nutcases, and other assorted architects of ruin.

    Hey LL,
    If you're going to type "That woman...don't be a puzzy" and whine b/c I clarified you meant "The Rogue" for BB.

    Good to see you're not still breathing heavy over Mitt the Twit's alleged "character and moxie".

    Look, you're doing it again, i.e. Deceitfully assembling different words/parts of different posts I've made into a false concoction via your very untruthful character.

    When having to deal with liberals, I no longer get surprised at the levels to which they attempt to deceive and lie. Morality and character is absent from their lives which is why they are confined to the lives and circle of friends they have.

    the country is too large and too diverse for a two party system. Busting up one of the parties into smaller groups doesn't make a lot of sense as that just hands the reigns over to the opposing single party. The real change that's needed is to go to a multi-party system.

    The Dems will gladly and like a collective (see star trek borg) vote for what's put in front of them.
    The right-minded has been forced to reluctantly vote for what's left. The fact that right-minded America is strong enough to question leadership kills them on election day.

    The Pubs (collective) voted for what was put in front of them, not using a single brain cell in the process. As a matter of fact the single brain cell Pubs that didn't vote got exactly what they asked for.
    It is not the responsibility of the United States to solve the problems of other countries.

    Kind of in a way, remove the passe attempted insults and that's what I typed.
    Just to clarify;
    Well-informed responsible productive Americans demand more of a candidate.
    The low to no informed Dem liberal cult will vote for anything put in front of them.

    Yep, instead of voting for what was left (Mitt) 10-mil or so just stayed home. See if the right had that "voter fraud industry thing" going for it, like the Dems, we could have got around all those people that stayed home.

    Nah, they all showed up. It is just that the conservative voters voted against the obama, and they tend to follow the one man one vote rule.

    The real power grab takes place in the primaries, where two shysters are selected for the peasants to choose from.

    Homer Simpson is right on. Defund the RNC and the DNC, both.

    Once again in 2012, the MOST "Well-informed responsible productive Americans" voted overwhelmingly for Obama.

    When you consider how many fail to even graduate HS, the college attainment statistics are even more dramatic & difficult to deny.

    If you believe dropping out of HS produces "Well-informed responsible Americans" you "clarify...The low to no informed" Rep regressive anti-intellectual, anti-science "cult" to a T.

    True. Back in the late 40's when my parents moved down here they registered as democrats so they could actually vote for a viable candidate.

    Without voter id...Dems will continually win (read this as steal) elections....
    Why do they oppose Id to vote? One must ask....
    Mostly they say because it disproportionately disqualifies the poor....(I say the truth is more likely it disproportionately disqualifies the DEMS illegal voters)
    They say the poor do not have access to photo id, yet in Obama's signature achievement....one must present not only their Obamacare card...but photo id to prove who they are....does this mean that the DEMS are trying to disenfranchise the poor form receiving healthcare.
    To qualify for food stamps (oh SNAP)....you must prove...who your are...where you live....provide much information about your financial and living arrangements....are you saying that someone who can qualify for food stamps is incapable of producing an ID to vote?

    There is but one (1) reason to fight a voter id requirement and that is to allow those who are not qualified to vote....if elections were to suddenly require more stringent requirements it would make it harder for a precinct to oh say report a statistically impossible 30,000 votes for Obama and 0 votes for Romney....The Dems....stealing elections and lying since 1964 (this is when they learned they can keep blacks on the plantation by making victims out of them...this is also when they decided to stop lynching them)

    Contrary to much party rhetoric & in some case, just plain fertilizer, in my humble opinion the truth about winning elections comes down to getting the most individual votes, and corresponding electoral votes. The role of major city populations dominates the success and failure of elections, regardless of education levels of those voting.

    "...Partisan lines that once fell along regional borders can increasingly be found at the county level. What does that mean for the future of the United States?

    Starting before the Civil War era, America's political dividing lines were drawn along state and regional borders. Cities and the then-extensive rural areas shared a worldview North and South of the Mason-Dixon line. While there was always tension within states, they were bound by a common politics. The city of Charleston, for example, was as rabidly anti-North as some inland plantation areas. Economic engines, ways of life, and moral philosophies changed at the 36th parallel, where the North began.

    Today, that divide has vanished. The new political divide is a stark division between cities and what remains of the countryside. Not just some cities and some rural areas, either -- virtually every major city (100,000-plus population) in the United States of America has a different outlook from the less populous areas that are closest to it.

    The difference is no longer about where people live, it's about how people live: in spread-out, open, low-density privacy -- or amid rough-and-tumble, in-your-face population density and diverse communities that enforce a lower-common denominator of tolerance among inhabitants.

    The voting data suggest that people don't make cities liberal -- cities make people liberal. (See video at link)

    The only major cities that voted Republican in the 2012 presidential election were Phoenix, Oklahoma City, Fort Worth, and Salt Lake City. With its dominant Mormon population, Mitt Romney was a lock in the Utah capital; Phoenix nearly voted for Obama. After that, the largest urban centers to tilt Republican included Wichita, Lincoln, Neb., and Boise.

    The gap is so stark that some of America's bluest cities are located in its reddest states. Every one of Texas' major cities -- Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio -- voted Democratic in 2012, the second consecutive presidential election in which they've done so. Other red-state cities that tipped blue include Atlanta, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Birmingham, Tucson, Little Rock, and Charleston, S.C. -- ironically, the site of the first battle of the Civil War. In states like Nevada, the only blue districts are often also the only cities, like Reno and Las Vegas.

    Because winning a state's electoral votes requires only a simple majority, a single city can change the entire game. Blue cities in swing states that ended up going for Obama last Tuesday include Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Denver, the cities of Florida, and the cities of Ohio..."
