Anyone Else Feel Like Tossing The Towel In?

31 posts / 0 new

BIG things have been happening this year... and either people "don't care" or people can't overcome the deluge of daily propaganda. But, WE'VE been on quite the LOSING STREAK!

I firmly believe that Republicans are the WORSE of the 2 Parties. That's not saying much. It's kinda like being the world's tallest midget.

How anyone could vote for Walker in Wisconsin (after that phony phone call) is beyond me.

Why didn't the story of The MN Police DRUGGING and openly SUBVERTING the occupy movement have legs?

How can ANYONE vote for Romney... for ANYTHING!?!

How did the STEALING of the IA primary from Ron Paul not throw this nation into a frenzy is beyond me. We talk about the "FRAUD" of "voter fraud" all of the time. Then when it happens... nada. Not a peep. It shouldn't matter if it's "your guy" who gets an election stolen from him or not. Next time... it'll be "your guy" because you said NOTHING earlier. So the next time it happens to one of your guy's... STFU! Either be against voter fraud... or don't care.

I don't see how ANYONE can support Obama. After those EXECUTIVE ORDERS that have come out this year... what are we doing?

How does Anderson Cooper still have a job after being caught FAKING THE NEWS!?! How does this happen?

How does the Federal Reserve exist when Bernake openly states that he "doesn't know" where the bail out money went?

I don't understand how people who say that they care about the environment don't mind all of the chemtrails.

I can't see why ANYONE would EVER call themselves a Republican or a Democrat and be able to sleep at night.

I don't know how a person can be in favor of UNIONS... and then, "LOOK THE OTHER WAY" when massive corporations STEAL benefits from their work force... I am talking about the NBA and the NFL. Again, if they can do it to "those guys"... there's NOTHING that they can't do to you or me! Either you want "worker's rights"... or you don't. (How AWESOME would it be to have Peyton Manning next to you on a picket line!?! Thanks to your silence... you'll NEVER know!)

Why is there still a "Patriot Act"? We all know by now what it really was put in place for. I can understand the "knee jerk" reaction. But, the sunset clause has already set on that toilet paper act.

Why aren't we HOPPING MAD about the powers that be wanting to take away OUR internet? So I'M expected to turn around and VOTE for someone that openly tried to SILENCE me and my brothers and sisters?!?! Hell NO!

EVERY ONE of our civil rights that are quickly disappearing are due to DRUGS still being illegal or they are disappearing due to FALSE FLAG terror operations. Why? We subconsciously know what's wrong... we use DOUBLE THINK to "trick" ourselves into NOT knowing. Why?

Why do people who claim to care about the well being of others, support AGENDA 21? How does a person pull that "trick" off? Teach me how to do that! I love my fellow man... explain to me how I can love my fellow man and then at the same time... want to kill them off of the planet and take their stuff! How does one pull that off? I don't know.

I feel like throwing in the towel. If "WE" don't "GET IT" by now... "WE" NEVER will.

Steal the election from Ron Paul? That nut wants to end the Federal Reserve and go back to the Gold Standard. I swear that he still thinks we live in the 1700's. I'll be voting for Romney come November, because it's the lesser of 2 evils. I know that there is no hope for Obama. Hopefully Romney can live up to some of what he's saying, but after the failed presidency of GWB I doubt he will.

You truly are certifiable if you think Romney is the lesser of two evils. And you're certifiable if you think there are only 2 evils, and you're not out there trying to find a new FDR.

Entitlement Society - What I am hearing from you is that it's OK to steal an election... as long as it's not "your guy" who's getting stolen from. Wow.

ANY election that is stolen should be outed as such and rebuked.

Entitlement Society - Do you hear how you sound? I'm sure you don't like "TYRANNY". Yet, you want tyrannical acts. You are another patient that is suffering from "Stockholm Syndrome" and "Double Think."

Too many zombies. They're everywhere! I'm going to the basement.

Only democrats squeal when they think an election has been stolen. Despite his runaway success in terms of straw poll victories, campaign contributions and grass roots energy, a plethora of evidence strongly indicates that Ron Paul is being cheated out of winning any of the Republican caucuses, with the GOP establishment desperate to prevent the Texan Congressman from building any kind of momentum that the likes of Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum have been afforded.

Ending the fed and returning to the gold standard would prevent the banksters from manipulating the currency.

Really? Are the Democrats the party that's claiming voter fraud in every election that they lose? I guess squealing about voter fraud is different huh.

Wasn't it George Bush who took the 2000 election to the Supreme Court? That's pretty loud squealing in my book.

Of all things in life, winning the presidential election is fairly important. You can't blame the Republicans for going after that election every way they could. You thinks the Dems would have done anything differently in the same position?

The democrats were in the same position and didn't do the same thing. All it would have taken was one senator to stand with all the house members that challenged the 2000 election, and it would have forced a re-vote in FL. The 7000 blacks stripped of their voting registration would have been reinstated. The 537 vote margin would have disappeared, the votes for Pat Buchannon would have been properly cast.

As it is now, Romney wants to make the police, firefighters, and teacher layoffs permanent. His rich buddies have their own security force, and private firemen. Teachers don't matter since boarding schools and private prep schools are fine. Social security will be cut or forwarded to Bain and other private equity funds.

A new war will be launched next year, after tax cuts are made permanent. FICA will be raised to 10% for employee, and cut to 5% for employer. "Everybody should have to contribute more to their pension, we're all in this together" commercial being filmed as I write.

I was around in 2000, and don't remember that scenerio discussed as a possibility. If what you say is true, the Dems only have themselves to blame.

So, the Dems should blame theselves for not being the sociopathic robots that the GOP are. There is a diffeence between the two parties.

Tom Daschle agreed to keep any senators from joining the motion. Remember Gore going through the vote tally and at every protest motion asking the representative if a senator had joined? Daschle got a different makeup of the committees instead of challenging the election. He got an extra democrat on each committee, which is where the legislative power lies. He felt this move would neuter W, and next election would be easy. Then 9/11...end of story. The democrats still had power, but were afraid of being on the wrong side of a new gulf war, and they remembered how Gulf 1 was an easy win, so no challenge on anything, not patriot act, not freedom fries, nothing was challenged.

My senator from FL, on the intelligence committee, Bob Graham, voted against Iraq. He had the intelligence report and new it was a wrong move. [he was also retiring and not running again, it is much easier to vote your conscience when you're leaving, Americans like war a lot, and you can't get elected on peace.. you gotta wanna nuke'em]

Listening to Alex Jones today it sounds like the Ron Paul supporters are imploding since Rand endorsed Romney and Ron is dropping his campaign. Interesting listening as they are now not happy with their hero Ron Paul.

Easy girl. Remember there are still some leftist regimes where you can get "certified" and sent off to a camp if you do not endorse the right candidiate. Stalin used this method.

F.C. has simply caught on to the fact that we need to be very, very careful of how much control we want to give others over our lives. It can and will be abused.

I'm not a big fan of FDR. But if you can find another conservative patriot such as JFK, I'll go for that.

What leftist regimes would that be? As far as control over our lives goes it's a tit for tat scenario. If government gives industries the freedom to pollute then that takes away my freedom to breathe clean air and drink clean water. If government gives industries the freedom to cut down trees at will then that takes away my freedom to enjoy the beauty of our country. If government gives industries the freedom to hire based on race or gender then that takes away my freedom to work anywhere that I'm qualified.

Regulation actually creates more freedom than the lack of regulation does. The libertarians of the world would do away with that. Anyone with power can abuse it. Whether that be government or private entities. The difference is that we can fire those in government that do so but we can't fire anyone in the private sector. It's a no brainer to let government have more power when the government is we the people.

My God this thread is depressing, because of too much truth in it. I can think of a couple of solutions, which I dare not mention in a public forum. I will say to anyone who is considering voting Republican as the solution, I think you are making a HUGE mistake. Although, maybe having Obama in power has kept us from hitting rock bottom. We thought it was bad under Bush, maybe having a President Romney would be like the alcoholic who finally loses everything, even things he (or she) didn't know they had to lose before they get better . Problem is, too many alcoholics who find themselves in that position never make it back.

Ron Paul had better do something, otherwise he could end up handing it over to Virgil Goode, which wouldn't be a bad thing. Of course America will vote the Bilderberg puppet then piss and moan about 2013 being worse than 2012.

You got me there. Mine is long gone. Along with my 69 Mustang. My brother in law still has 2 69 Roadrunners though.

Roadrunners!!! If they are in good shape they are worth a bundle!!! I had a 68 Torino GT covertible and a 69 Mustang and they are long gone, wrecked them both when I was a teenager. Bought this Camaro about 2 years ago.

I test drove one of the new Dodge Challengers a while back. It was sweet. The salesman said the one I was driving was listed at 35 thousand. I said I could buy a 68 or 69 for that price. He said yeah, but it's old and this baby is brand spanking new. I said true, but as soon as I drive it off the lot it's going to be worth thousands less than what I pay for it. Then I said that if I bought a 68 or 69 the value would actually increase the longer I have it. He realized he couldn't win that argument and walked away. LOL

I sold my 69 Mustang for $400 bucks back in 1980 because it had a cracked block. I still kick myself. Take good care of that Camaro!

Back in 69-70....when I was a little kid, my meek mild aunt took me along to the local Plymouth dealer to get her little old lady Dodge Dart serviced. The loaner they gave us was a bright yellow Superbird!.....LOL! I smile every time I think about that.....I can still say I rode in a Superbird!........Don't follow values but I'd bet it's worth $100K now........can't remember but I doubt it ever reached the speed limit when we had it....

The stuff they come up with is just plain bizarro. I've found these false conspiracy threat stories, especially the ones I get on email, are often copied verbatim onto scores of what I call "Bubba Blogs"..ie.. boating, fishing, hunting, racing, RV, firearm, motorsports blogs.....where they are then seriously discussed and debated... .I believe it's a coordinated effort to get the “Larry the Cable Guy” vote......

Reading the comments on these articles yields even more fun and entertainment. I listen to "patriot movement" radio from time to time just for a laugh. The commercials on these shows are also fun...."Buy Gold!"....."Buy seeds!"...."Secrets of where to hide your guns!"....."A 3 year supply of freeze dried food is a must!"...."Everyone needs a survival plan!"......"Protect youself with our stronger door locks!"...."Secure ammo storage!".....”Subscribe to Voice of the Resistance!”…...a cornucopia of survivalist-militia-nut-job paranoia porn that I find humorous......

It's funny how these groups get all stirred up and become more visible in the media when there is a Democratic "threat" in power....the worst thing that could happen to them is for the GOP to capture full power again; then they would be squirreled back away into the rubber walled attic and ignored until needed again on cue to attack the next Democratic threat to “freedom.” Think John McCain’s “Hobbit” quote…LOL! Many are apolitical but generally unaware of anything outside their own little threat-world, generally rural and thus bombarded with RW radio….. and definitely clueless that they are mostly used to benefit the corporate mainstream GOP, ie Ron Paul supporting Romney.

Alex Jones really seems to be a likable guy, definitely not vitriolic like many of them, and sometimes has good points, but when he starts discussing secret FEMA camps and the like, it jolts me back into the reality that he’s really just another tinfoil-hat nut-job that cleans up well.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
