This Is Not A Dictatorship

In the United States, the president does not declare politically motivated scientific truth, and shut down essential industries based on his idiotic ideas which he understands nothing about.

That is the kind of crap which goes on in third world countries. Republicans need leaders who will put an end to this madness, but Boehner and McConnell are limp fish Obama enablers. The United States is a mess, led by nutcases and eunuchs.

    I agree with your assessment.

    Real leadership is absent from both political parties.

    True, but a lot of American people still haven’t woken up to that, and even after they do, many don’t care, and others have no idea what to do about it.

    You’re way too hard on Boehner and McConnell, Steve.

    The unfortunate fact is that the Democrats are in power. The best efforts of Republican leaders in the current D.C. environment amount to a rear-guard action, trying to slow down the rot. The only way to change sad fact that is to put Republicans in power.

    For now, the Democrats are in the driver’s seat, and as long as they are the country will continue lurching to the Left.

    Republicans have a razor-thin 53.8% majority in the House, but some of those supposed Republicans are really liberal and libertarian RINOs.

    Democrats have a stronger 55% majority in the Senate, plus control of the White House, plus a mostly left-leaning activist federal court system.

    That combination guarantees Democrat domination of the federal government.

    There’s an outside chance that Republicans could wrest control of the Senate from the Democrats this Fall, but it’s a long-shot. We’ll need a net gain of at least six seats. The very best we could possibly hope for would be eight, if all the competitive seats go to the Republicans, which would be astonishing.

    The task goes from daunting to nearly impossible if the Democrats pick up any of the currently Republican Senate seats. Georgia (open seat) and Kentucky (McConnell) are the most vulnerable.

    McConnell is probably the most vulnerable Republican incumbent up for election in the Senate this year. The last Democrat presidential candidate to carry Kentucky was Clinton (both times), but the Democrats enjoy a 57%-to-37% registration advantage. McConnell has a big problem with the Rontard & libertarian RINO fringe, who’ve been emboldened in Kentucky by the election of Ron Paul’s son, Rand, to the other U.S. Senate seat. A clique of dishonest RINO saboteurs, including Matt Hoskins, Matt Kibbe & Eugene Delgaudio, are the Democrats’ best hope for taking the Kentucky Senate seat from the Republicans. The RINO saboteurs been spreading lies about McConnell, falsely accusing him of colluding with Obama and Reid to support Obamacare. If they succeed in damaging him sufficiently, the Democrats could pick up his seat, making a Republican capture of the U.S. Senate almost impossible this year.

    Here’s a (slightly optimistic) State-by-State rundown of our prospects in the U.S. Senate this Fall:

    • There Is No Substitute for Victory says:

      The only danger of the Party of Obama capturing McConnell’s seat is the danger that the Tea Party will by over arching stupidity, ignorance, and nativity help elect an Obama clone. Since November of 2010 the Tea Party in Senate election after Senate election has a proven track record of pulling abject defeat and bitter humiliation from the smiling jaws of a sure GOP victory.

      Without the considerable help of our tea bagger friends there would today be a Republican Majority in the US Senate instead of a 55-45 split in favor of the Democrats. That would also mean that the Kenyan war lord living in the White House today instead would be receiving his mail at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

      • Ernest Bush says:

        Your problem is that the Republican base has not gone progressive as you obviously have. The current Republican leadership showed last night how they will gladly bend over and allow Obama to have his way with them. Romney lost because the Republican base mostly stayed home. I no longer consider myself a Republican and I will not give a cent to the Republicans because of the kind of candidates they drag out to be defeated, especially for the presidency. I will support conservative and libertarian candidates financially who have been denied funding by the Republican party.

        If that infuriates you, I really no longer care. There are millions more just like me. We are fed up with the John McCains, Lindsey Grahams, and Mitch McConnells, who look and act politically like their Democrat counterparts. We are tired of them and their games. If the country goes down the drain as a result of our attitudes so be it. The current Republican Party is a joke on the Republic of the United States.

        • daveburton says:

          YOU, Ernest Bush, and people like you, are the keys to the advancement of progressivism.

          The Republican leadership hasn’t “gone progressive,” That’s a LIE from the pit of hell. it is YOU who have empowered the progressives by helping them beat pro-life, fiscal & social conservatives.

          McCain & Graham are moderates, not progressives. McConnell is a conservative, not a progressive. Susan Collins is a liberal, but she’s from a liberal State, and she’s not in leadership, and even she had enough sense to oppose Obamacare.

          It is thanks to YOU that the progressives are in the driver’s seat, and thanks to YOU that we have Obamacare, and that this is what we can look forward to in a few decades:

          Be sure to remember that, 30 years from now. Remember it as you wait 6 months for an MRI scan (like Canadians already do), while your suspected cancer metastasizes, or as you wait 3 years to get your gall bladder removed (like Canadians do), or as you live out your last few years in a wheelchair (like Canadians do) because, at your age, you’ll never get to the top of the waiting list for a knee or hip replacement. Remember, then, that it was YOU who so weakened the Republican Party that Obama was able to enact ObamaCare without the support of a single Republican, in either the House or the Senate.

          When your baby granddaughter is dehydrated to death to rid society of the burden of her disabilities, like they do in the UK, be sure and tell her parents that YOU made that possible:

          This is not the 1950s. There’s an ENORMOUS difference between the Republicans and the Democrats, now. Anyone who says otherwise is either colossally ignorant or colossally dishonest, or both.

    • Jeff says:

      I smell a wishful thinking Democrat. (Yes, some Democrats are against this AGW nonsense, but are still Democrats).

      Dave Burton overestimates how much support the Democrats have in America and this has tainted his analysis for the upcoming midterms. There is a strong chance the Republicans will win back the Senate considering that the Democrats have to defend twice as many Senate seats in very conservative states: Alaska, Montana, West Virginia, and North Carolina are pretty much gimmes. That doesn’t include Louisiana, Arkansas, and Virginia. Where the Democrat leads, but is well below 50% (as Republican support is divided between various candidates and whose support will come together when the time comes) and other strong possibilities with the right candidates and wind blowing on our backs…Minnesota (where they have a clown Senator in Al Franken), Michigan (where polls already show our candidate very competitive with some showing a lead), New Hampshire (where we have a likely solid candidate in Brown). The Democrats have ONE chance to unseat a Republican (Kentucky and only if things go right for them, I don’t expect that to happen).

      6th term midterms are always poison for incumbent parties. The average loss is SIX Senate seats. Then you have Obama’s unpopularity in these states I mentioned and you have the sheer numbers of Senate seats themselves. Then there is the possibility that with his outright war against coal industry that the second Democratic Senator might flip if he sees writing on the wall, as he is far and away the most conservative Senator in Democratic caucus. 11 or 12 Democrats in danger and 1 Republican.

      We need 5 to tie, 6 to win. I like our chances.

      • Jeff says:

        I forgot to mention Colorado. With Democrats there bleeding support by the gallon over their ridiculous gun confiscating plan, they just handed us another one.

      • daveburton says:

        Your sense of smell is defective, Jeff. I’m a pro-life, pro-family, limited-government, strict-constructionist, very conservative, longtime Republican Party officer and volunteer.

        I wish I shared your optimism. I’m here in NC, and I do think Republican Thom Tillis will beat Democrat Hagan, and I will do everything in my power to make that happen, but it will not be easy, and it’s certainly not a “gimme.”

        Republican Presidents’ 6th-year midterm elections tend to be bloodbaths for the Republicans, in part due to the accumulated damage done by 6 years of leftist press sniping. But that’s not true of the Democrats, and in part because there are usually some Republicans in Democrat-leaning States who got elected on the President’s coattails.

        The last Democrat President’s 6th year midterm election was Clinton in 1998, and the Democrats didn’t lose any seats in the Senate, and they actually gained five seats in the House.

        The last time Republicans picked up six or more seats in a Democrat President’s 6th year midterm was 1938, when Republicans gained seven, after having lost 12 seats six years earlier. That seven-seat gain left the Democrats with “only” a 69-to-23 majority in the Senate.

        The Democrats picked up eight seats in 2008, so we should be able to win back some of them. But to gain six or more seats will require a truly historic victory, and if the Rontard RINOs don’t stop sabotaging Republicans with their lies it’s going to be very, very difficult.

        Also, note that there’s no such thing as a “tie.” A “tie” is a loss, because Biden would break the tie for the Democrats.

        Also, note that one of the so-called Republicans in the Senate is Susan Collins (RINO-ME). There’s no guarantee she won’t pull an Arlan Specter and switch parties to give the Democrats control if we turn over exactly six seats to just barely win control of the Senate. We really need at least seven, to be safe, but that’s very unlikely to happen.

  4. Jeff says:

    That should read 6th YEAR midterms.

  5. There Is No Substitute for Victory says:

    I agree with your analysis but you did not factor in the political ignorance of the Tea Party. Angle in Nevada in 2010 said it wasn’t her job to bring new jobs to her home state. The result of her running her mouth over something that she had no idea about (work) resulted in a very vulnerable Harry Reid winning reelection. Pretty much the same thing in Missouri, Indiana. Colorado, and about 5 other states. The Tea Party on the other hand held on to only 3 safe GOP seats and in 2014 Georgia and Kentucky is in play, with a Democratic victory possible and remember that in 2016 Tim Scott will be targeted for defeat by the Dems and in my opinion they have a better than 50-50 chance of pulling it off.

    Six or seven GOP seats p****d out the window by the tea party is to steep price to pay for a Rubio, a Cruz, and one Rand Paul. Because Senator Paul has already endorsed McConnell, I fully expect the childish Tea Partiers to turn on Rand Paul if McConnell is reelected. And after Rubio refused to lynch Hispanics I expect the Tea Party will turn on Senator Rubio. That only leaves the question of what will Ted Cruz do to earn the wrath of the Tea Party?

    • What is the point of supporting people who have no principles they won’t compromise and no line they will not cross? That means they will cave to the opposition at the very time they must hold to their principles on principle. There would be no real difference between a Republican and the worst possible Democrat. As such, they are not worthy of being supported to any degree. The bottom line is that Faith, God, Family, Country, and Tradition are insufficient grounds to win back our formerly Constitutional Republic. Unfortunately, THAT is about all the Tea Party has to fight with and the Republican party has even less.

      The Democrats promise and deliver bread and circuses. The Republicans promise the same but more efficiently and at a lower cost. They deliver more of the same. The Tea Party makes a pretty noise without substance. It won’t make a damn bit of difference if the Democrats, Republicans, or the Tea Party win the next election or the next one after that. Government will continue to grow and We the People will still have our individual rights both ignored and violated wholesale by our Government.

      Our prospects are grim at best. Hang on, it is going to be a very bumpy ride.

    • Jeff says:

      The Tea Party has made some bone headed decisions, true. But I think they are listening. I don’t see any Republican who is truly vulnerable to a primary, including McConnell.

      The moderate Republicans have to accept that the Tea Party is their base as well. That’s what it is. Time to work together.

      • Even if they do “work together” it won’t make a significant difference because there is no substance behind “Faith, God, Family, Country, and Tradition”. These things give no guidance as to what principles to uphold nor why. They give only a “feeling” and cherry picked sanctimonious sayings from ancient texts. This is not nearly enough to accomplish anything for real nor to counter an equal or stronger “feeling” from the other side. The side who is the most consistent will win even if their position is totally wrong for mankind on this earth.

        • Jeff says:

          Of course it’ll make a difference. You sound like an alarmist: we’re all doomed.

        • I offer as evidence the past 100 years of elections. With pitifully few exceptions, Republican or Democrat the Government grew, our liberties shrank, and the debt placed on our future has grown. Most people don’t have an understanding of individual rights and why they are important for living on this earth. The ideas in our funding documents are treated as subject to momentary whim and shifting equivocation to the point of being inoperative. What is it that is going to make a difference that matters? Changing the names on the office doors sure isn’t it.

          Personally, I don’t view slowing the continued growth of government and national debt or slowing the shrinking of our liberties as a difference that matters. At best, it buys us a bit of time to do it all over again at the next election. After all the wealth has been consumed and after it has been made impossible to create more, what then? Do we start eating each other as rats on an abandoned ship?

          No Freedom No Economy No Money. Communist countries always destroy themself . North Korea is greenpeace’s dream. It is also a great place to play basket ball. There is a 99’99 % consensus that dear leader is always right.
