If you recall, during the Cold War, especially as it applied to Vietnam, the media duped the entire country into believing South Vietnam was already lost while the exact opposite was true.
This very same media is now trying to dupe the entire population again and infect Americans with the same defeatism that almost caused us to lose the Cold War and cease to be a nation.

This is just more BS news to get people to read ads. Obama has won all the Swing States and is now eating into the Red States. He has 350 Electoral Votes and that is the only poll that counts and there is only one real Electoral Poll never shown on TV. It is online.
Obama has won bigger than in 08. Get over it.

In the States we have mainstream media Neocons are trying to brainwash people into thinking is negative but look up the word mainstream and find in the States it means what the majority thinks, likes, wants and is. Faux is the problem with Right wing Radio. They should all be arrested for treason.

If you recall the recent history of the United States, specifically the post World War II Cold War era, you are well aware of how the so-called "mainstream" media indoctrinated the population of the United States with defeatism, while the truth was the communists were decimated and defeated.
Lo, and behold, it's those same so-called "mainstream" media so-called "news" institutions that are trying to convince the population of the United States that the election is already over.
Shall we go over the system of lies used by the Democrats to brainwash the American people that they are losers?
Let's start with the beginning of the Cold War when the most prominent Democrat in the country aside from the sitting president, Alger Hiss, was convicted while spying for the enemy Soviet Union, which took the Democratic Party about 20 years to recover from... which brings us to about 1968 when the Democrasts openly joined the communists during the Cold War and began a full-force indoctrination of defeatism to the American people, while at the same time exhaulting to hero status the communists who became the worst mass murderers in the history of civilization.
Then, let's review the lies the Democrats invented about Vietnam:
Lie ONE - "I fear the war is unwinnable." - Walter Cronkite
Lie TWO - "You can't win a war with a bunch of drug addicts." - every goddam Democrat circa 1968 to about 1970. When this became an obvious lie, it was replaced by
Lie THREE - "You can't fight an enemy you can't see." - every goddam Democrat circa about 1970 into the 80s, which when the American public slowly became aware of the truth that the communists were defeated and out of the war by, coincidentally, 1970, was replaced by
Lie FOUR - "The South Vietnamese wouldn't fight for themsleves." - every goddam Democrat circa 80s to very recently when the American people began to become aware of the fact that the South Vietnamese defeated the single largest communist invasion of the entire war, the Easter Offensive of 1972, after all US ground combat units had been removed from Vietnam in 1971. Then, in 1973, the Democratic-controlled congress cut off all funding for the country and government of South Vietnam, preventing them from re-arming after the pushed the communists out of more than 90 percent of South Vietnam in 1972, more than during any other period of the war since the communists first began invading South Vietnam, and passed the Case-Church Amendment which prevented any transfer of munitions and supplies from US Armed Forces to South Vietnam, and as a result....
In 1975 the communists invaded and conquered an unarmed and defenseless South Vietnam.
In the next two years the Democrats' heroes, the communists of Southeast Asia, Ho Chi Minh, murdered more than 12 percent of the combined populations of Laos, Cambodia and South Vietnam, becoming statistically the single worst mass murderer in the history of civilization.
And, now, you want us to believe that same source of information isn't lying to us again....

So he gets in again. What's the worst that could happen. No budget for another 4 years? Double the national debt - again? Gas prices double - again? Wars in Syria, Iran, Africa and they kill a few more US Ambassadors? Terrorists attacks on all infidels?

With all the new jobs,$8 gas, another 20% increase in food prices and the huge savings we'll see on our health care costs will make it seem worthwhile.

Philip Greene
“Unapologetic True Journalist”

Since: Dec 09

Forty years ago, Richard M. Nixon looked around and did not like what he saw and decided it was up to him to change it. He decided that he was the only person who had the answers to the problems the country faced. He decided that only he could save the nation.

From there, it was one minute step to deciding that anyone who was not with him must be against him; anyone who did not actively support his programs or, worse yet, who opposed them, must be an enemy of the state and therefore his enemy. Messiahs normally do not see the possibility that they just might be occasionally wrong.

That self-assurance and arrogance of purpose finally led to Nixon’s downfall by his own hands. A nation breathed a sigh of relief that we had dodged despotism and the first steps toward tyranny.

But it seems that the Republican Party, in its desire to embrace what it sees as “traditional values” has revived the Nixon Legacy and is heading down the exact same course.

Since January, the GOP has taken very public and very aggressive moves to pursue and threaten their opponents. Just like Nixon – whether it is actually written, as his was, or whether it exists only in thought, the Republicans have an enemies hit list and they are going to go after anyone who has dared side against them; even those who have simply failed to support them in their righteous cause.

The list has few surprises since most of the names on it have long been a target of the GOP – Public Broadcasting, Labor Unions, and Civil Rights activist groups. One surprise is the AARP, the latest enemy to be identified and singled out for retribution – and make no mistake about it, that is exactly what all this is about.

The Republican dominated House Ways and Means Committee is seeking to strip AARP of its non-profit status. They openly admit – in a change from their other hit list campaigns – that this is specifically because the organization supported the Republican-hated Obamacare. In other words, they want to eliminate the organization, as they seek to do with unions and the independent voice of public broadcasting, simply because they dared to oppose the Righteous Right.

No longer are they hiding behind budget balancing or security reasons; now they are coming straight out and saying they want to cripple these targets merely because they are opponents. Now it’s simply a matter of,“If you don’t fall in line and get in step, we are going to come after you with whatever weapon we can pick up.”

And that is called political terrorism. Not to mention a full frontal assault on Freedom.

There are no other words for it. They are now openly pursing a course of single party rule; any opposition must be completely and totally crushed so that nothing stands in their way. It explains completely why they have refused to compromise, to debate and why they have refused to even acknowledge the need for meeting in the middle to serve as many people as possible. Their purpose is no longer to serve the interests of the people, but to serve the interests of the party.

Or perhaps that should be “The Party.”

We as a nation can sneer, wave dismissively, deny that it could happen here (forgetting conveniently that it nearly did during the McCarthy years) and ignore the fact that this nation is currently being shoved down the path to Soviet-style single party rule; yes, we can continue doing that right up till the time we look around and see that everything that we have worked for and stood for as a people and a nation is gone. No one wants to believe that a place like America could ever be so vulnerable, so susceptible to the failures of other nations.

But we are – the more so because of our denial. And if we continue to deny, even the possibility that it may be happening, we certainly create the viral breeding grounds where the disease of intolerance will mature into despotism.

And that explains:
Ho Chi Minh going to Paris and asking the French to come back after the war to get the Chinese to leave, who stayed after they monitored the removal of the Japanese army and wouldn't endorse Ho Chi Minh as the supreme leader of Vietnam;

Ho Chi Minh asking the Soviet Union to help him in the war he started against the French that he asked to come back to Vietnam when they wouldn't endorse him as the supreme leader of Vietnam, which the Soviet Union immediately endorsed Ho Chi Minh as the supreme leader of (North) Vietnam;

Russia petitioning the UN on hehalf of Ho Chi Minh to separate Vietnam into North and South, which the UN approved, and Ho Chi Minh immediately beginning invading South Vietnam after the UN agreed to create a separate country for Ho Chi Minh, EXACTLY LIKE WHAT HAD HAPPENED PREVIOUSLY IN THE COLD WAR IN KOREA;

North Vietnam invading Laos and Cambodia and occupying those countries to use as support bases for communist invasions of South Vietnam;

North Vietnam taking devasting defeats in the two Tet Offensives they launched (I'm thinking you're so ignorant, you weren't aware of the fact that there were two years when the communists launched an offensive during Tet) with no net gains;

The Viet Cong being so devastated, they ceased to exist as a military unit and their remnants were folded over into the NVA;

The NVA being so devasted they chose to abandon the part of South Vietnam west of Saigon they had continuously held since the beginning of their invasions, and run into the communist-occupied territories of Cambodia;

The removal of US ground combat units from Vietnam in 1971;

South Vietnam defeating the single largest communist invasion of the war in 1972 WITHOUT ASSISTANCE FROM US GROUND COMBAT UNITS, after which the South Vietnamese controlled more than 90 percent of their country;

The 1973 Democrat-controlled congress that cut off all funding for the country and government of South Vietnam after they defeated the single largest communist invasion of the war WITHOUT ASSISTANCE FROM US GROUND COMBAT UNITS, thus they were not able to replenish the munitions and supplies necessary to defeat the single largest communist invasion of the war WITHOUT ASSISTANCE FROM US GROUND COMBAT UNITS;

And the communists invading and conquering an unarmed and defenseless South Vietnam in 1975;

The New Black Panthers case stems from a Election Day 2008 incident where two members of the New Black Panther Party were filmed outside a polling place intimidating voters and poll watchers by brandishing a billy club. Justice Department lawyers investigated the case, filed charges, and when the Panthers failed to respond, a federal court in Philadelphia entered a “default” against all the Panthers defendants. But after Obama was sworn in, the Justice Department reversed course, dismissed charges against three of the defendants, and let the fourth off with a narrowly tailored restraining order.

Justice Department lawyers investigated the case, filed charges, and when the Panthers failed to respond, a federal court in Philadelphia entered a “default” against all the Panthers defendants. But after Obama was sworn in, the Justice Department reversed course, dismissed charges against three of the defendants, and let the fourth off with a narrowly tailored restraining order.

Was that kind of like the activities of 'True The Vote' in 04, 06, 2010 and thus far in 2012?

That's not the only incident. During the Travon Martin case, Holder actually sent FBI agents to investigate whether Zimmerman used discrimination in the shooting. Chicago has dozens of shootings every week, but for some strange reason, Holder decided to isolate this case for racial discrimination review by federal FBI investigators.

Holder is a racist, and anybody who supports DumBama is a racist too because DumBama backed Holder every step of the way.

Nice try.
