quote for the day

"Conservatism has never been successful in this country. It has only led to some of the darkest periods in American history. The Civil War, the Great Depression, and now this last decade are all due to rampant conservatism."

Stephen D. Foster Jr., in his article The Greatest Liberals In American History And What They Did For Our Country


Okay, I'm about to the point where I think that Democrats should boycott the elections. Why? Two reasons:
1) Many of the representatives on the left side of the aisle are either spineless, or sitting on the wrong side. Clear them all out, the good ones will make it back next cycle.
2) No matter what happens, the GOP has the MSM on their side, spinning everything to make them look good and Democrats look bad. Remove Democrats, remove the cover they provide.
So here's my thought. Let's let the Republican Party take over the government. Completely, decisively. With no opposition in the House, and control of the Senate and the White House, they will have no one to blame but themselves when their insane policies make things worse than they already are. Democrats had their chance at dominance and they blew it, through either duplicity or cowardice, allowing the Right a level of believability that keeps them firmly in power, majority or not. Ask yourself, do we really want another presidential term like the last one?
Let the GOP in, let them run rampant, let them, at full volume with no opposition whatsoever, rape the country as they have been quietly doing for decades. I suspect that, at last, most (not all, of course) of the nation will finally see them for what they are.
I think that might be worth a two year dive into Hell, rather than the slow descent into purgatory that we're experiencing now.
And hey, maybe we're all wrong and Republicans really will make the country better!

Probably by getting tossed out on their asses during the next election.

Didn't they rule from 2004 to 2006? And they're excuse for 2008 was basically, "Those guys you voted for last time weren't real Republicans, they were frauds." In a sense, that's what the Tea Party is saying: "We're the real conservatives; these guys are posers."

So it doesn't matter is they get complete control; when they inevitably screw up, the next batch will disown them as being pretenders to the throne.

Yeah, okay. Still, the more times they are shown indisputably to be full of shit, the closer we are to maybe getting something done by the Democrats.
