Recent letters to the editor state "a democracy also depends on citizens that are knowledgeable about the issues and the candidates running for office and alas, I don't think that was the case in this past election". Written by a Democrat.
No , stats prove that when the turnout is high most vote democrat ! Simple ! Never said they were stupid ! Smart people do foolish things ! People were fed up with the grid lock in DC and they looked to end it ! But what they will get is more of the same ! Heck , if it worked for republicans , it will work the other way too !
Poor turn out, stupid voters....your are talking about Democrats my friend.
Let's start with the sixty million illegals entering the country, greek.It didn't happen.Show us all the proof that doesn't make you a willing liar or a slobbering fool.My money is on the latter.(; Barry has deported MORE illegals than ANY potus. The head of the irs at the beginning of that program was a Bush appointee. Benghazi was a CIA operation,and it was a tragedy.Isa found nothing. If I recall, F&F was a continuation of a Bush adm. policy. Bombing test runs? Documentation needed. Facts before emotions, greek.Baaaaah!
There in lay the problem ! Poor voter turnout ! They didn't embrace the republicans as much as got tired of all the bullcrap !And Greek where were you 6 years ago ? You really didn't know our economy was collapsing ? Didn't hey cover that in your right-wing whacko media ? lolol!!
Hopa and Change fizzling out.
NasCarNut: The Republicans did not "seize control of Congress". The Voters, Democrat and Republican, got tired of the Democrat BS especially Harry Reid bringing the Senate to a standstill and not allowing any votes. Non compromising Democrats were sent home.
The get out the vote buses do not roll in midterm elections.
And as recent letters to the editor suggest, a lot of the Democrat Voters which the Democrats rely on in elections are stupid and lazy.
The letter writers words not mine.
Ignorance is bliss to some...
SO. You are telling me you LIke the IRS Scandal. You like the Benghazi scandal, You Like Fast and Furious, you like 60 million immigrants entering the country on Barry's invite when we cannot even take care of ourselves, or our neighbors, you like the fact that Russia is flying NUCLEAR bombing TEST RUNS against the USA all summer and Now as we speak, you like the fact that every time a cop kills a minority in self defense it is murder and almost starts a race war, you like the fact that bills are being illegally made up the POTUS by bypassing the legal branches of gov. You like the fact that there is a war on coal, guns, ammo and self defense by legal citizens. I have NEVER taken a wooden nickel but it does not surprise me that you probably have a bank full of them since you are defending a socialist czar and still believe in Hope and Change !! Are YOU for freakin real ??
Are you for friggin' real,greek.I bet you have quite a collection of wooden nickles.You know, the sad part is that you really are sincere in your ignorance of this reality.To state that the country was better off six years ago...., well you can't make that detached ignorance up.
wELL nut. yOUR HEROS THE DEMOCRATS HAVE HAD THE UPPER HAND FOR WHAT six YEARS NOW AND has anything changed????? no it has worsened.... iT HAS BEEN WAY WAAAYYY WORSE THAN WHEN THE REPUBLICANS ARE IN CONTROL.... Your dems tell you what they are for to get elected then do the opposite.... And all the corruption of the last 6 years is UNPARALLELED by ANY administration d or R !!!!
@beright..have you forgotten the Republicans insist that they stand against big government and regulations and protect free markets, capitalism, and the American way. They demonize Democrats for advocating for restrictions and regulations, but their actions speak louder than their words when it comes to the realities of Republican politics. Take a look at the money trail; it's easy to see that regulations are a cornerstone of the Republican way, just as long as they're the ones reaping the benefits.
Three sectors celebrating the most for the GOPs victory are energy, industrials and financials, look it up. Get ready for a lot of Green on Wall Street...
Just think if banks had no regulations how many shady deals would be going on. Now that Republicans have seized control of Congress, bankers are hoping they might see a loosening of regulations created in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. You get the government you deserve. After Tuesday's results, it's looking like we deserve another recession. You can be sure the GOP will do its best to give it to us, while further enriching the powerful Wall Street special interests that fund the Party...It's what they do.
Do you have any thoughts on beright's comment,kunec?
Did you forget,beright,corporations are people......,selectively.
JP Morgan is in the news again, along with Citigroup, for more shady bank dealings. Fines are nice but why hasn't one person at JP Morgan gone to jail?
Someone at these companies has to know what is going on.
Why isn't the gov't spending time chasing these scoundrels down?
I hope the new AG has a better sense of priorities then Holder. These bankers need to go to jail along with corrupt IRS officials.
That is also a good question. We both know that some members of any constituency will vote the party line (both dems and repubs) no matter what.
They may just not figure it out.
That is a good point. Question is will the other voter be mad enough to see the damage and vote for someone that is not a democrat.
If we give 8 million illegals amnesty, what Democratic constituency would suffer the most? Who will get those minimum wage jobs that everyone complains about? If we agree that some of the illegals are from Mexico I can tell you for a fact that they are not afraid of hard work. So if you get millions of new citizens who are not afraid to work, which Democrat constituency gets hurt first?
