Being nice to republicans is a waste of time

This does not mean spit on your neighbor or kill repukes dogs. It means STOP worrying that pushing a Democratic agenda will piss of Republicans and result in them retaliating with their own legislative agenda.

HELLOOOOO??? Where have people been? Republicans shoving their own agenda down our throats has been going on for decades. President Clinton was compromising with repukes then we got Bush and the fiasco that that was. President Obama was compromising with repukes and LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED!!!

Don't for one second think a compromise with repukes will result in a benefit for us. It may help you sleep better at night but it won't help minorities get better lives. It won't help LBGTs have better lives. It won't protect Americans healthcare. It won't keep babies from getting ripped from their parents arms and thrown in a cage to live in their own filth. It won't protect single women from being forced into single motherhood.

Don't forget the lessons of Obama's first election win and the subsequent loss of congress and state legislatures in 2010. Keep your butts on the front lines and continue to vote like your lives depend on it.

One election will not rid us the repukes. They must be ground into the dust until they disappear or nominate decent people to the courts and for elected positions.

Taking the high road just means we hit the ground harder when pushed off it.

6. You Can Outnumber Them At The Polls And Still Loose

Trust me, I live in PA and until the state courts nullified the Congressional map we had 13 out of 18 congressional seats occupied by Republicans; it's 9 - 9 now but that's still a Republican advantage considering the Democratic party's registration advantage in PA. It helps that the statewide offices have been held by Democratic folks for the last few years. But the state legislature is still held by Republicans. They'll just change the rules, pack the courts or gerrymander themselves into power and ignore the will of the people.

I've said this many times, the Dems need to make systematic structural changes to prevent the Repubs from pushing on the scales. Every effort has to be made to get people to participate in elections, ensure representatives are beholden to their constituents and not their party and keep taxes and resources local (people like Mitch who brag about securing more resources for themselves should be described for what they are, theives). Make more programs matching funded; communities have to buy into what they want. Don't punish communities that want government services and are willing to pay for them by transferring state and federal tax revenue to fund areas that are anti-tax and anti-government (practice what you preach and suffer the consequences). That's what's going on in most communities and the Repubs just keep taking and then throw in the "tax and spend" crap to top it off.

2. The republicans have become a fascist movement which seeks total power

They do not want to share power in a democratic system and are working to create a one-party state, in which liberals will be imprisoned, exiled and executed.

5. It's Lucy pulling the football every fucking time--on the question of court stacking

..our response should be: fuck yes were are going to stack the courts; Repubs did for years--now its our turn to balance the courts since they won't play by the rules.

Oh theyll cry foul--who the fuck cares! [Ok I'll settle for hell yes!] Then just leave it at that--with them shaking in their boots--those SOBs. Point is you xant trust a reouvlican to follow the rules, honor decorum--they havebshown ys time and time again that they are not to be trusted-EVER!
