So you think it's OK to make threatening "jokes" about murder and cannibalism? Notice I said "normal, sane voters."

As far as i'm concerned.......he is probably the only person i know who can look down on just about anyone for "feeding" off the system.

Besides. hes a nam vet. Got my respect.
The rest of us just call that living in a civilized society.

While his credentials for self-survival are impressive ~ that's certainly NOT how I want to live and that is reflected in our respective political visions.

Being self-sufficient doesn't make you a good person. Neither does being good at handiwork or being a veteran. Ted Kaczynski was self-sufficient too. He was still a crazy, homicidal maniac.

The point is, a big part of the reason the Republicans lost is they allowed the hysterical Tea Party "Obummer is a ******* atheist commie Muslim!" types to speak for them, and the Teapers scare a lot of moderates.

Why did 10 million Obama voters go missing in action in 2012? It's the economy, the jobs he promised but never delivered. If he doesn't deliver jobs this four years for the American people or do something about the deficit and his wars, the democrats will only be left with that pro-illegal alien vote and that will not be enough to win in 2016.
Maybe those missing voters were lost due to voter suppression? Or maybe that did not know about the republican vowed to fight anything Obama does. I think that it os interesting that mitt and company repeated over and over that the government "does not create jobs" but yet his minions come on CD demanding that Obama does something that mitt said that could not be done.

Oh more thing, if the republicans come back in 2016 trying to win with only the extremist vote they will lose again.

You must not understand how the electoral college works.

Thank you Obama voters! I hope you enjoy the misery that you will now be part of! It doesn't get any better than this. Hope they enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Interesting that you would give out the 'playbook' for success. To a great extent, you propagandized by substituting a "campaign truth" for a complete truth. The people you mention as representing the conservative may be highly visible - too visible really - and certainly convenient talismen to hang conservatism on, but they are not the conservative movement. They are no more, no less than Bill Press, Rachel Maddow, Ed ?, Al Sharpton, Stephanie Miller, etc. Personally I think all of the personalities, in your post and my response, are great deceivers.

What you have admitted to in your post, is simply a very clever and effective fitting of propaganda to modern media. Nothing less and nothing more.

"Applied peer pressure?" You mean got them in line with the 'company line'. This is no greater achievement, than say when the coal mining companies had company stores, where all of a workers wages had to be spent. As Tennessee Ernie said, "I owe my soul to the company store."
16 Tons


The success of clever political persuasion does not matter, as the joy of a momentary victory will fade when one realizes he is still owned, just by a different master.

Congratulations on a very well run campaign. Now to successfully govern, for the 100%. Otherwise, Enemy Mine.

We took people to the polls and showed them videos about how to use the voting machines. We demanded they participate because people died for your right to vote. We applied peer pressure to those around us who didn't get it. And you know what we used to light the fire. Your party's on people. Rush Limbaugh,Glenn Beck,Sean Hannity,Mike Gallagher and many others. We recorded their words and more importantly the words of their callers. We played it back at parties and while watching ball games. Once those that were not into it heard what the Romney vote was all about,they became just as active or more so than us.

We did all this on our own time. We sent money. We called it overtime for Obama. This happened all over the Country. And you guys still don't see us,but you will
