Re: A simple electoral reform

When you have actual principles and beliefs you do not need to go in a new direction just to get into power.

1) I am as principled as anyone, probably more than you.

2) If your principle is to keep doing the same dumb thing, [more]

Re: A simple electoral reform

Here is a thought: When NO ONE agrees with you and EVERYONE disagrees with you, then maybe you should just consider the possibility that it is YOU that is wrong.

Here's a thought: When you are lost, try listening to the guy who wants [more]

Re: A simple electoral reform

It's disappointing that NOBODY here gets this. The denial of the problem is really just more of the same BS that is keeping us ineffective as an opposition. You guys will stick to the same old same old useless behaviors, but I won't join you there. [more]

Re: A simple electoral reform

If you register as a partisan, you can vote in your primary and your general election vote becomes automatic. If you register as an Independent, you can't vote in any primary, but you can vote for any candidate in the general.

Ugh. [more]

Re: Agenda: The Grinding Down of America

Yeah. I saw this bit of apologia already. Nonetheless, Agenda is absolutely on point.

Agenda: The Grinding Down of America

Above is a link to the complete movie. Well worth watching. A reminder of how far we've fallen in a very short time, and a good explanation of how it happened.

Re: Buh bye, Eric.

You have posted dozens of messages and I swear, every time I read one I have no clue as to how it fits into the previous ones.

Re: Buh bye, Eric.

So what? No one said it was going to be easy. That doesn't mean we're not winning. I'm not buying your defeatism. And there are many, many more who will not be defeated, who are doing the necessary work of rebuilding an opposition. And as long we are [more]

Re: Buh bye, Eric.

Weren't you the guy who just a month or to go was arguing that the conservatives had to play nice with the Boehner's and Cantor's of the world?

You misunderstood. But I *am* saying that we need all three legs of the coalition, meaning [more]

Re: Buh bye, Eric.

The so-called establishment Republicans are the team. That's why they're the "establishment."

Not even close. If you need an analogy, the establishment is the board and the TP is the shareholders.

Re: Buh bye, Eric.

If I've misconstrued your message, I apologize.

You misconstrued. My message is that we must stick together in order to defeat the enemy. We need to be more partisan, not less.

FElix is duplicitous and typically dishonest, but not stupid.

Some people just keep coming back for more. Oh well

Now we get to watch how the Party makes damn sure this is not an easily won election, as the Tea Party losing is far more important to Republicans than Republicans winning

Re: Buh bye, Eric.

Felix thinks Democrats love the Tea Party winning and then, for some reason, feels the need to point out that we don't every time. Whatever. He's a counter-indicator.

You can't have it both ways.

In fact he was supporting the establishment team.

I see this as nothing more than the result his joining the Democrats and other establishment Republicans in bashing more than half his constituents

Buh bye, Eric.

See what I mean? We're winning. It's not about purity, it's about supporting the team. Cantor was not supporting the team, so he had to go bye bye.

Re: Leftopedia: 'minority'

Umm, no. It is obviously the left who are in love with the hyphens, to the point that they say idiotic things like French African-American to refer to French Olympic athletes who are black.

Re: Leftopedia: 'minority'

Hyphenated Americans, as cultural and ethnic identifiers, have been around for more than a century. In fact, they arose as right-wing, anti-immigrant epithets against German- Irish- and Italian-Americans. It's not some recent "leftist [more]

Carson, Martinez, Cruz, Gowdy

Imagine Carson, Martinez, Cruz, Gowdy instead of Obama, Biden, Reid, Pelosi. It can happen. If it excites you, it should. If you think it can't happen, go ahead and stay on trend and nominate another Bush, Dole, McCain, or Romney. Or just go on [more]
