We keep hearing how the Republican party needs to redirect itself in order to survive for the good..

of the country. Even people like Rachel Maddow (whom I love and admire) talk about it and how we need a Republican party for the good of the country.

I'm not so sure I agree with that. We need an opposition party just for checks and balances, but I can never remember a time when the Republican party did anything that was good for the country. I believe Eisenhower's Interstate highway system was the last decent thing they ever did.

I was having a discussion at a party with a couple Republicans not long ago and I challenged them to name ONE THING Republicans ever did that was good for the average American in the past 50 years. Needless to say, they were completely stumped. I still offer this challenge to anyone who wants to take it.

The point is. I would see it as more of a euthanasia kind of thing and putting them out of OUR misery if the entire Republican party were to die once and for all. So, stop the emergency care already!

Admit it, Republicans.... you are almost as relieved as we are that Romney lost the election.

It's just a shame that your ignorant party politics took the country that close to a total disaster. But now you're glad that he's gone and you just want to pretend it never happened. But he was the face of what so many of you believe...and it's not easy looking in the mirror sometimes.

Why don't you try this?
How about you give your fellow Americans credit for electing the better man and give him a chance. That used to be S.O.P. back in the days you all claim to want to go back to. "Alright, we would say... we lost and now we have to give this other guy a chance and back him up."

Our side has done that every time. Even through Bush until he proved our worst fears. But your side stooped to impeaching Clinton and obstructing Obama like it's never been done in our history. You talk about seceding from the fucking country because the rich guy who was going to give himself a tax cut and raise your taxes to pay for it didn't get elected. WTF is that?

So take a deep breath... open your narrow minds and try to make this a better country by working TOGETHER for a change. Who knows?... You might even like it.

This could have the effect of a revolution occurring under the radar... just consider...

It looks like O is going to come out on top on Tuesday if all the indicators are accurate. Just think of what this says about our country.
The billionaires failed at buying the government of the people.
The cheating could not stand up to the actual vote.
The lying was unable to smother the truth and the ability to distinguish the difference.
The Tea Party will become obsolete.
Perhaps the Republican Party itself will be relegated to the history bin. (doubtful of that one, but who knows?)
The Supreme Court will be out of corporate control for the first time in decades.

There are more major ramifications to this election, so you can add your own .
But the point is this... If we re-elect Obama (as we damn well should), this election is very possibly a bigger revolution than the first one when we elected our first African-American president.

Is it just me, or is Mitt Romney the absolutely most unlikable person in the country?

I will truly have to move off the planet if I have to look at him and listen to his bullshit for 4 more years.
I shudder at the thought!

Do us all a favor and just go away.... for a very long time.

What Obama absolutely needs to point out at this last debate.

Obama needs to explain to people in the simplest terms possible the number of Bush people working with Romney. I am not sure of the exact numbers (perhaps one of you can fill them in) but he has about 7 people from the Bush team working as his economic advisors. We all know where they got us, and Romney's plan is almost exactly the same.
Beyond that, he has about 7 more of Bush's people working as his foreign policy advisors. If you love endless wars, these are your people.
The biggest problem with all this is that the average voter does not know about all this and the Prez only has one more chance to explain it to them. Of everything said about this election in the past year, the most compelling is when PBO says "We cannot go back to what got us here in the first place".
These "minor" details need to be spelled out in the simplest terms possible for the last big audience on Monday.

Freedom isn't free?

Why is that saying only applies when we're talking about the lives of men and women fighting in wars, but when we ask the wealthiest Americans to pay another nickel in taxes... suddenly freedom is supposed to be free?

Great!... And here's another one..

Why is it that when we're talking about the lives of men and women in war they say "Freedom isn't free" But when we ask the wealthiest people in the country to pay another dime in taxes, all of a sudden Freedom is supposed to be free?
