So the Democrats won the White House and gained seats in both the House and Senate... And FOX(R) was wrong. Shocking. And although more Americans voted for Democratic, rather than Republican representation, GOP gerrymandering allowed them to keep control of the House.
This is what Speaker Boehner called a “status quo election”. Yeah, that’s it.
But that’s not even the most unhinged lunacy from Republicans. Not by a long shot.
The brainwashing cult indoctrination of the radical Right is an amazing thing to see. These are some real true believers.
We see Public Policy Polling has some interesting findings. And before anyone denounces them for having “liberal bias”, please note: The Murdoch Wall Street Journal ranked PPP as one of the top swing state pollsters in the country during the last Presidential election.
PublicPolicy Polling reveals the madness:
“Republicans not handling election results well”
PPP's first post election national poll finds that Republicans are taking the results pretty hard...and also declining in numbers.
49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found:
that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn't exist anymore.
Some GOP voters are so unhappy with the outcome that they no longer care to be a part of the United States. 25% of Republicans say they would like their state to secede from the union compared to 56% who want to stay and 19% who aren't sure.
One reason that such a high percentage of Republicans are holding what could be seen as extreme views is that their numbers are declining. Our final poll before the election, which hit the final outcome almost on the head, found 39% of voters identifying themselves as Democrats and 37% as Republicans. Since the election we've seen a 5 point increase in Democratic identification to 44%, and a 5 point decrease in Republican identification to 32%.
What a country! Turns out half of the Republican voters STILL think ACORN stole the election for Obama, from the grave apparently.
I'm not sure what hope there can be for a nation that is a quarter delusional. The good news is their cult is shrinking.
But they still number in the millions and American has its work cut out if it wishes to be a free and prosperous nation.
Yes, as the pundits and corporate "journalists" say, the polarization in American politics is wider than ever. No wonder. The corporate media stenographers do very little reporting of facts, while the propaganda arm of the Republican Party has duped it’s cult into believing they are “fair and balanced’.
Let’s look at the contrast between the two perspectives of a divided
One is that of the so-called “conservative” radical Right, aka the Republican
Party. The other is the opposite alternative, not necessarily that of the
junior corporate Democratic Party. America
the view is that the banks are to be regulated, and my view is that Washington Washington and
the regulators are there to serve the banks." - Spencer
And who can forget:
”There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it....And so my job is not to worry about those people—I'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” Willard (R) the Loser
Now that’s the Right attitude.
In contrast we have:
Tell us, therefore, what do You think? Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?”
But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, “Why do you test Me, you hypocrites? Show Me the tax money.”
So they brought Him a denarius.
And He said to them, “Whose image and inscription is this?” They said to Him, “Caesar’s.”
And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” – (Matthew 22:17-21)
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.- (Mathew 6:24)
On social justice for the poor:
“From each according to his ability and to each according to his need.”
What? Too liberal, too compassionate, and too commie?
Well then, there’s this radical view:
"All whose faith had drawn them together held everything in common: they would sell their property and possessions and make a general distribution as the need of each required." (Acts 2:44-5)
Verily I say unto thee, if Jesus were to come to
he would be called a godless commie by the “real Americans” of the FOX(R) cult. If the Republicans were in power they'd want to toss the radical Leftist into Gitmo. America
