Yup, that's a fact.

Republicans should start praying now.

With the entire parade of republicanís who likely are awaiting a phone call from God giving them the personal ok & instruction to run for President, God might need help in picking the right one.
If you remember last round all claimed to have gotten a personal ok from God except the Mormon. He then won the primary then lost by a landslide.
Maybe it was because all the faithful followers of the Republican Christian Taliban were too busy ranting and raving about Obama to have said their prayers properly as to whom God should anoint. Seems all God likely was hearing; was Obama, Obama and more Obama coming out of the Republican echo chambers. Because the Republican Christian Taliban kept ranting and raving about him and God thought that was who they wanted for President. At least that is the only theory that makes sense if God is involved which the Born Again Religious Right of the Republican Party claim.
But, to insure that the same donít happen again all Republicans should be praying and ranting and raving about whom they want God to anoint for them. Forget about Obama and be quite as a mouse about Hillary. No ranting and raving causing a mix up again.
Step up to the soap box and declare your choice and back it up with some intelligent reasoning other than anyone other than Hillary. Donít wait until the Fixed News and radio political carnival barkers tell you who to support and why. Remember that didnít work last couple times.
Here is a list for you to consider and if you have someone else put his or her name out there and start supporting your personal candidate.
Paul Ryan (Aryan Rand follower),
Rand Paul (half Libertarian half John Birch),
Chris Christie (good Republican but he thanked Obama Ėa big no no),
Ted Cruz (McCarthy reincarnated evil looking),
Marco Rubio (skin issue & in hot water with tea party over immigration bill),
Jeb Bush (can another one be sold to the voters Ė too reasonable),
Scott Walker (wealthy manís pawn),
Rick Santorum (pushes a religion theocracy along with crazy personal beliefs)
Mitch McConnell (kidding),
Michelle Bachmann (not again),
Sister Sarah (has been but she will take the donations for another vacation).

Oh no, not me. Not at this time in history. I would not want the mess.

I served on Goldwater's campaign. I didn't agree with him on every point but he was a intelligent man. He knew that religion and politic should not be mixed together. He knew that regardless of party affiliation people elected to office have to compromise in order to govern.

Reagan invited the religious right into the Republican party knowing it would give him a political action committee in every church. That played well with the old southern religious right & some Catholic's.

But it has nearly destroyed the GOP of old. The extreme right has taken over and is playing the religious nuts for suckers. The extreme wealthy and corporate interests are involved also and will be more due to the Citizen's United decision.

I'm a old style conservative lets say the Ike type Republican. Instead of worry about foreign aid, wars & corporate interests all over the world,how about worrying about good jobs in the USA and rebuilding this country.

NAFTA-GATT has destroyed the industrial base in this country and was only done so the rich could move production to cheap labor markets outside of the USA. There went the jobs and slowly the economy since the average person is hurting while the stock market jumps. Now understand that NAFTA was a Republican idea but pushed into law by Democrat Clinton,(who is many aspects was a liberal Republican more than a Democrat.

Me run for office? Nope my Republican Party of old has left me and joined up with the extreme right & religious nuts. I would have taken that $10 in cuts to very $1 increase in taxes without batting a eye and said at once right where the cuts should start. Until the light bulb is turned back on, I a man without a party.

I might be giving the Republicans heck but as a Republican of old they deserve it. Someone needs to point out the stupidity in the echo chamber.

If you don't like what the Republican party is doing, you should not be a Republican. There is no reason to associate yourself with a corrupt political party. Both major parties are nothing more than corrupt entities using the American people as pawns for their own gain.

I think for myself, so all of the zombie democrats here think I'm a radical right wing militia leader, while the zombie republicans think I'm a loony left wing moon bat.

But that is because they have been trained by their political masters to reject independent thought and conditioned to always follow the mindless herd.

Look at your average democrat... Everything that Obama is currently doing that Bush also did was "Unconstitutional and unpatriotic" when it was Bush doing it. Now, it's admirable and heroic.

Look at your average Republican, they had no problem with Bush's actions... but when Obama does it, it's "Unconstitutional and treasonous."

That's how they've been able to take away our rights and divide our tax dollars up between them selves and their criminal friends. They know that half the country will go along with it, no matter how bad it is for the average citizen.

Unless the populace wakes up to this scheme, the country has no future. Eventually, they'll run out of our money.

Well Mac, I donít have much of a problem with what you have said.
The problem is I like to vote in the primaries and attend Republican Party meetings. I believe that one has the right to disagree within the party as to the direction a political party has taken. If there is a rat in the party point a finger at him but why run and hide. For all practical purposes party affiliation means little as one can vote as you wish. Political party affiliation is not like a religion. Iím more of a progressive conservative that is concerned with taxes and how they are spent. Not crazy about foreign aid, corporate welfare and welfare farmers.
I have some hope that Republicans will regain their senses but I also have my doubts. I believe more and more people are seeing the Republicans as a bunch of oppose everything Ė do nothing Ė rant and rave radicals.
Basically itís a two party system nationally. Sometimes they have to look hard to find things to differ over if one looks into the their past which you also said.
But I do believe that the Libertarians have taken over the Republican Party rather than trying to remain a viable third party.

I understand your point of view, and encourage you to work to improve the republican party, as I encourage democrats to do the same.

Both parties are so wildly corrupt that I can't in good conscience support either. They pay lip service to different things to create the illusion of choice, but at their core the parties are in place to serve the global banking cartels, along with the military industrial complex... the likes of Haliburton, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, etc.

There are mountains of evidence all around us, it's blatant and in your face... republicans and democrats just don't *want* to see it. They want to be vindicated that they were *right*... my party is good the other is bad.

As Mark Twain said, "It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled."

I think the local right wing whackos are awaiting a call from above to be told who to support.

They just don't understand its not God its Rush Limbaugh or Hannidy using radio or tv signals.

See its exactly as I said.

The right wing nuts will not stand up and support a candidate until either Fixed News or the carnival barkers on radio & TV pack their heads for them.

Individual thinking is not their strong suit.

Surely you can do better than pointing out the "d" in Sean Hannity.
I have a friend who spells it with a "d" and my spell checker has his name in it.

Thanks for asking God to help me, but I like to keep God out of politics. But I do need all the help from God I can get to encourage so call Christians to act like Christians.

I got a kick out of the republican candidates who all had talked to God and got his permission to run for President. I don't remember the Mormon making that claim but God must have anointed him and then pulled the rug out from under him later, just to make fools out of them.

God must have also gotten tired of the right-wing religious nuts getting him involved so evidently he backed Obama. A Christian that lives and acts like a Christian rather than a foaming at the mouth member of the Christian Taliban that seems to run the Republican Party.

"Hofstra" that tell me a lot about you.

Pretty pricey place for a average person.

Likely you were born with a silver spoon already stuck in your mouth and part of the elite class. Mom & dad footed the bill while you grew up feeling entitled. Ever work a real hard job there sport??

Starts to explain the stupid right wing remarks with out any lack of thinking depth behind them.

No....I paid my own way by serving in the Air Force. But thanks for the 'elite class' reference. It always delights me to read liberal trash postings and knowing the kids serving today provide protection for even limited people like yourself.

...Aaaaaaah, the hallowed halls of Weed and Adams. And Prof's. Alvarez, Panzeca and Otterman. So, that was you at my midterm exam was it? I know your identity, Mr G.

I currently have my silver spoon in the shop for its 350,000 mile check-up. You got an extra I can borrow?

You can say that again.

The right wing zombies allow others to do their thinking for them as if they have no mind of their own and that's a shame.
Fix News is full of pseudo patriots who don't have Americans best interests, only their own.
They fool these people each time with any and everything they can think of or make up.
They know each time they open their mouths, it's a lie.
This is done to inflame and incite those who get tricked into voting for politicians who do nothing for them except offer rhetoric, no results.
