Pretty much this right here.

We're living in the age of the 'Almost Gilded'. Back in the 30s and 40s, we were in the midst of recovering from the results of unregulated capitalism run amok, and we had the threat of communism there to force the plutocrats into compromising and throwing a bone or two to the working classes of America.

Since then, they had the Communists to worry about, a reason for them to not push the workers too hard or too far, lest they start listening to the Communists about how bad capitalism was/is.

Once the threat of global communism went away in the 90s, however, we saw them slowly creeping back to their former stances.

Nibbling at the edges of long-earned rights and benefits like Child Labor laws and worker protections and union organizing.

I maintain that it was the threat of communism that kept them going full retard and regressive on the country and now that communism, as a real threat, is gone, they're doing their best to drag us back to the days of company scrip and dormitories. An outright plutocratic society where the rich are the only ones who matter.

zappaisfrank: How did a bunch of financially illiterate, agitated rednecks and retirees gain so much control over the policies of this country? WTF?????


Well, they decided to go to their local caucuses and pick people out that believe the same dumb shiat they do. Then, they actually no-shiat got up, left their trailer, and voted in the midterm election. Which is more than about 58.5% of the population of eligible voters can say.

Guess what, getting active politically can actually change things. Unfortunately, the 'tards all figured it out at the same time.

It happened when your team decided to give more and more of the "financially illiterate, agitated rednecks and retirees"'s hard earned money to lazy deadbeats.



For the most part, those "financially illiterate, agitated rednecks and retirees" are the lazy deadbeats your talking about.

Lost Thought 00: Citrate1007: The Tea Party and Bible Pounders will be the downfall of the republican party. When you allow the extreme fringes to embrace ignorance with an end result that is counter to fiscal conservatism and small government in order to appease their narrow world views you end up with a ship sailing alee and a liberal elitist empty suit like Romney at the wheel.

There is no downfall. They are winning. They are the majority. Rational people will soon never have a say i governance again.


They are merely beating out established GOP candidates in the reddest of the red districts and view this wrongfully view this as encouragement. Most voters will stay with party lines regardless of what is going on but the ones who decide elections are fairly moderate and only lean slightly left/right. The Obama/healthcare is evil tactic didn't work on most of these folks and the Tea Party who ran on a platform of economic reform during the mid-term elections have proven themselves to care more about penis-goes-where legislation than economic reform. Furthermore, the narrative of impending economic doom has been stifled by actual economic recovery which hurts their chances even more.

While small government is a great ideal we have seen nothing from the GOP that shrinks government. Instead we have seen them focused on preserving tax breaks for the rich at the expense of social services, penis-goes-where legislation that expands government into the bedroom, and hypocritically defending pork-barrel DoD spending in an attempt to maintain two wars which we are slowly backing out of. The worse part about the DoD spending is that it is not about taking care of our troops, which not to long ago was the GOP mantra, but it is about taking care of non-competitive contracts to private businesses where there is more excess and waste than any other line item in our annual budget. This has served to show people that the Tea Party and GOP are not in fact concerned about fiscal conservatism, but are simply trying to use tax dollars to get rich and maintain power.

Contrary to Tea Party delusions, most people who consistently vote republican are quite charitable people and know that there is a need for a social safety net. They would prefer that they choose what charities to support rather than the federal government; however, they also realize that education first and foremost in addition to a welfare program that provides opportunity for economic achievement in lieu of entitlement is necessary.

Seabon: Because their 'populist' movement served the political ends of the people who control the corpoate media, they got a much bigger microphone than other such movements with more support.

It's not hard to get corporate support when you're angry about perceived mistreatment of the wealthy.

For decades the right wing fringe groups have understood that the Republican candidates, in order to be successfully elected, need to appeal more generally to the moderates in the party, and have been satisfied with the more subtle nods from the candidate that their agenda will be considered.

The teatards, OTOH, expect to be catered to lock, stock and barrel or they'll take their ball home and cry into their pillows. These morans are tearing the GOP apart and I must admit it has been fascinating to observe. The Republican party has awakened a sleeping giant, and it has gone full retard.

Away with your tubal ligations

On the way to the polls
When a Tea Party guy tried to
steal my soul.
He shook-a me up, he took me by the arm.
He had a pickup truck, and a
medicare card.
He stared at me and I felt disgust.

Maybe not the Tea Party per-se, but Republicans are pretty much guaranteed to take the majority in the Senate (argue all you want about whether or not that is control), and are likely to maintain their position in the house.

I realize they don't understand, but Senator McCain tried this in the 2008. The United States is a pretty conservative country, but not enough that you can dismiss your moderate and liberal voters and still win. In other words, "A Texan, won a conservative primary, for being very conservative .... is it a day that ends in 'Y'?"
