Writer Lashes Out At “Fearful” Republican Voters

329

In The Daily Beast this week, writer Michael Tomasky insists that the GOP primary “is where ideas go to die.” In a rant for the ages, Tomasky laments the fact that forward-thinking Republicans like Marco Rubio and Rand Paul must give up their progressive ideas for standard ideologies to satisfy “the aging, white, very conservative, revanchist, fearful voter.”

According to Tomasky, this voter sees the primaries not as an opportunity to pick a candidate who can win, but rather as a “Parris Island-style ideological obstacle course on which each candidate must strain to outdo his competitors – the hate-on-immigrants wall climb, the gay-bashing rope climb, the death-to-the-moocher-class monkey bridge.”

You can almost see Tomasky’s righteous fury taking tangible shape above his keyboard as he slams home his moving declaration: “You can’t be a smart candidate in a party that wants to be stupid.”

Isn’t it nice when liberals presume to reach across the aisle to give advice to Republican voters? Hey, I stand for everything you hate and you stand for everything I hate, but here’s what I would recommend…change your positions so that they match mine! Right, that makes sense.

Of course, one can recognize the depth of Tomasky’s ethical fiber with little more than a passing glance. He apparently sees the primaries as a kind of political horse race, where voters should place bets instead of choosing with their conscience. The point of election day, in his view, is to see how many candidates you can get “right.” To vote for the ones that will probably win. Gee, if that’s all there is to it, maybe low turnout rates are not such a mystery after all.

The hate-on-immigrants wall climb. This is how liberals see conservative positions. They refuse to admit that there is any substance there at all. It requires so much less effort to just denounce all of them as being born out of some “fearful” bigotry that we would all be better off without. Besides, it’s the hate-on-illegals wall climb, get it right.

If the worst Republican primary voters can be accused of is holding strong opinions about what is best for America, that’s hardly a great shame. And if the best the left can do with that is to stomp and call those opinions “stupid,” then they must be running on an empty tank.

For Tomasky and his liberal colleagues in the media, the only good Republican ideas are the ones already championed by the left. The only ones that aren’t “stupid” are the ones already being pushed by the Obama administration. Don’t they wonder even for a moment at their own blindness?

No, of course they don’t. They want to publish pieces that will earn them a congratulatory pat on the back when they go back to the liberal lounge. You really showed ’em, Mike. You burned ’em good.

One might call such an approach to political commentary lazy. One might call it dishonest. Come to think of it, one might even call it fearful.

    The Republican Party will have many up on the stages throughout this country and they will be letting their ideas flow. There will be diversity of thought on all subjects and from those best ideas will form the Republican Platform.

    Most of the candidates are young, bright, good speakers, don’t fear the Liberals or the Press. Paul already hit the press with the question why not ask the Democrat candidate the same hard questions your asking me. These guys are not going to be shy violets. They are not going to take any browbeating by Liberal mongrel monitors attempting to bypass them and sit with the opposition. These guys are going to bite back and hard.

    All the Democrats have is a grandmother, a known liar, a worn out fat woman with cankles. A woman who is attempting to be one of the people like Sarah Palin, who you Liberal nutbags threw stones at daily and still do.

    Hillary won’t make it. She will not be president. She is old news and a sickly woman.

    1. johnanaguski says

      hillary is mentally challenged.

      1. DivineEncounters says

        She is sluggish. I see such hypocrisy in trying to make her out a Sarah Palin. A real person, even though I am not a fan of Palin’s she is a real person who brought herself up by her bootstraps. Hillary is not going to get average Joe behind her if all networks were truthful.

        But we all know the Main Media is in her pocket just like O’s and I tell you folks if we don’t fight and win this one this country is gone.

        SO, is Obama !!!

    2. George Cahonna says

      Hillary is the epitome of What’s wrong with America. Its just the Dems are more messed up than the GOP. Fact is, both sides of the aisle are Rotten to the core. What has the GOP done with they’re newly gained power to help anyone but themselves? Fact is, for the first time in history Congress is dominated by Millionaires. We have 46 million Americans living at or below the poverty line(w/approx 900,000 Vets), more spying on Americans than ever before, an estimated 2.7 million children have at least one parent in prison, 17,000 local police forces equipped with Military equipment, yet the number of violent crimes is down & the list goes on. Both sides of the Aisle have worn out they’re welcome in America, so has the ruling Elite.

            “If” it comes to that? IF? They already spy on your cellphone and emails, tax you to death on everything but the air you breath, flat out lie to you on everything from the rate of inflation to the actual number of unemployed, and if you and your friends decide to form a non profit to educate others, they sic the IRS on you. If they don’t like your face or your attitude, they can whip up some fake charge against you and take everything you own through “civil asset forfeiture”. (Good luck getting your stuff back, even if you’re found not guilty!) If one of their corporate cronies wants your house to build a parking lot, they’ll call it “eminent domain”, even though that’s supposed to be used for the PUBLIC good, like for a school or a hospital. If you’re a rancher and they want your land to sell to the Chinese, they’ll jack up your land use fees, and if you dare to protest, they’ll come after you with attack dogs and snipers with shoot to kill orders. They treat killers with kid gloves: out of the tens of THOUSANDS of hardened murderers in the prisons, less than 40 were executed last year, roughly the same number of people struck by lightning. And if you dare to stand up like a citizen and defend your home gun in hand, somehow, YOU are the “bad guy”. They are trying to take OUR firearms, while THEY buy up thousands of high powered guns and billions of rounds of ammunition.

            George, there is no “if”: it has already begun. The question is, what will we, the people do about it?

For all their blather about “tolerance” , the very notion that there is a power higher than their own is utterly intolerable to them. For all their prattling about how we should “coexist”, they have no intention of co-existing with anyone who actually believes in GOD and an absolute moral code, and tries to live by that code in their daily life

          21. George Cahonna says

            Maybe, a dramatic point was intended..Today, had it never been recorded in history the phrase “Give me Liberty or give me Death” would have been considered to be melodramatic to many too sensitive to handle it. Maybe if one is too sensitive to heat, best they stay clear of the fire.

            John..I think your right. So far the only DEM running for Office is plagued with scandal’s, corruption, & traitorous acts. If this tyranny is continued to be accepted, America is going down. .

        2. TexasStomp says

          The ballot box works when citizens use it. The 2010 primaries were the single glaring example of HOW you get GOOD folks on the ballot in the general.

          Fail to elect GOOD folks in your primary and you will always get GIGO.

          1. Mark Clemens says

            Democrats, Republicans use to be different colors (one was Red, one was Blue). Now we only get one shade of grey. Who knows in 2020 the GOP might only put up a one name primary. There’s nothing in the rules, that says you can’t. Ask Hillary.

          2. TexasStomp says

            If a candidate meets the legal requirements for candidacy THEY MUST BE ON THE BALLOT. If the parties choose NOT to include them in under their party list….find their name and vote for them anyway….or write it in IF they have met all of the specs to run.

            Do the same in the general. If enough people would grow a pair and DO that the parties would not be dictating to us. They’d be doing everything they can to win our votes.

            It’s VOTERS who have made this mess. And only VOTERS can fix it.

          3. Mark Clemens says

            Citizens United has completely corrupted our political system. You or I could run for the Presidency, that’s true, but even if we have the 100% fix all solution. If we don’t raise a few hundred million, we won’t get our word out. Some special interest group would raise money to stiffle our voice.
            Money talks, bull shit and politicians do it’s walk……….

          4. TexasStomp says

            Sadly one of our worst presidents had one of the best ideas. A year long bus tour of America. Got out, shook their hand, introduced himself, told them what he wanted to do and what he thought was wrong….and they responded…obviously. He won.

            Why can’t someone actually qualified do the same? it DOES WORK. There is a strong and visceral response when candidates step off a stage and TALK to the wee folk. IT MAKES AN IMPRESSION on them that no TV ad can match.

            What does ANY candidate have to lose that they won’t lose anyway if they try to keep up with heavily financed party puppets?

          5. Mr Flippy says

            Hillary just did something like that, but she will not win.

          6. Mark Clemens says

            I think it a shame politicians don’t have to go town to town face a crowd w/their platform, and take hard questions. This election cycle we will get a few Televised debates were the moderator will ask pre- submitted soft questions.
            What are the Democrats gonna do? Hillary does need TV time. She just can’t debate w/a mirror……..I don’t think it could go a minute w/out busting!!!!!

          7. TexasStomp says

            I do too. With the internet….something Carter didn’t have, they could host on their own meetings….don’t even have to be “live.” They could just post a position on any topic and like a message board, answer questions or make comments when and as they get time.

            The impact of this is similar to what we feel. I wouldn’t know you in the mall but we’ve been chatting so long I feel I understand you and our frank exchange of ideas has tweaked MY position on many issues. I learn a ton on these boards and feel I’m a better informed voter for it.

            I just don’t understand why candidates who ARE going to struggle to keep up financially on the “public/media” playing field don’t see the benefit and take advantage of the HUGE audience they can reach for FREE.

          8. John Doe says

            If you looked like her, you’d probably run and hide too.

          9. greyfox says

            Exactly what Hillary is doing but let’s hope it doesn’t work for her.

          10. TexasStomp says

            Well it’s what she THINKS she’s doing. Unfortunately she not only has no clue how to mingle with the wee folks, but also none of her staff does either due to the fact she surrounds herself with “not wee” people. It will be a disaster as shown by her total CF at the fast food chain she “just happened to stop by totally by coincidence.” Between the fact nobody in her party tipped and the fact the so called “woman on the street chance encounters” turned out to be staged pretty much says it all. She’s either so out of touch she can’t get here from there or she has possibly the WORST campaign team of the decade.

            I think it’s safe to say it’s not only not working for her but she appears to not know the rule of holes….since she kept going and kept making gaffes every place’s stopped to date.

            I also think it’s safe to say the DNC has someone warming up in the wings. They are by NO means devoid of candidates and they are no doubt going to pulling another BAIT N SWITCH at the last minute.

            The IMPORTANT POINT is….as long as we’re all talking about Hillary’s skru ups, we AREN’T talking about the fact that a first term Senator who’s already demonstrated total naivety by getting suckered into Schummer’s Dream Act circus, 9 months out, already has $40M in campaign chest. Who in their right mind donates $40M to a JV Senator with a dicey record?

            Look sharp….BOTH parties are playing Whack A Mole with us.

            These primaries will be the most crucial vote anyone casts this DECADE. Both parties are doing their best to keep us running in circles while THEY decide who the winners will be.

          11. Mr Flippy says

            Voting for “write ins” just dilutes the vote – you’re either a democratic troll or a fool, but I repeat myself.

          12. John Doe says

            And sadly, I know too many that won’t vote. Yet they bitch all day long, they don’t realize that their vote will HOPEFULLY count.

          13. Mr Flippy says

            The ballot box does NOT work when the entire voting infrastructure and process is filled with Democratic operatives of corruption. From the people responsible for the tallys (and getting out the dead vote) to the people driving hoards of “voters” around in busses to polling places within their districts all day on Election Day. This kind of third word chicanery has to stop.

          14. TexasStomp says

            Well you’re sure not doing anything to stop it. Helyou’ve already conceded there can be NO fair elections and there’s nothing we can do about it. Obviously not with people like you telling everyone there’s nothing they can do about it.

          15. Mr Flippy says

            I didn’t say there’s nothing anyone can do, but you’re a fool to think it isn’t happening. And what I’m “doing about it” is called raising awareness of the problem. P.S.- You shouldnt post while you’re on your period.

          16. TexasStomp says

          19. Mr Flippy says

            > 100% vote for Obama in many districts (see, e.g.Philly) isn’t suspicious at all…

          20. headonstraight says

            All kinds of brazen lies have circulated concerning alleged voter fraud in the 2012 election. Here is the TRUTH for you if you can stand it:

            Origins: Claims of fraud have arisen after each of the last several U.S. presidential elections, especially since the 2000 election, the outcome of which hinged on a prolonged dispute over a victory margin of just 537 votes in the state of Florida. As the example cited above demonstrates, the election of 2012 was no exception in that regard.

            But whatever voter fraud (if any) might have occurred during the 2012 presidential election, none is evidenced by the example reproduced here. As shown below, all of the statements it comprises are demonstrably false:

            In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Romney. (A mathematical and statistical impossibility).

            It is true that 59 voting divisions in Philadelphia recorded no votes for Mitt Romney, but given the voter composition of the Philadelphia area (and some Philadelphia wards in particular) and the number of voters in each division, that outcome was hardly a “mathematical and statistical impossibility.”

            Barack Obama won the overall vote in the Philadelphia area by an 85% to 14% margin over Mitt Romney; Obama also received greater than 90% of the vote in more than half of Philadelphia’s 66 wards, and 99% or more of the vote in seven of those wards. That result was hardly surprising given that, as the Philadelphia Inquirer noted, those wards are “clustered in almost exclusively black sections of West and North Philadelphia” and “nationally, 93 percent of African Americans voted for Obama.” The Philadelphia wards that trended very heavily for Barack Obama included many divisions of between 200 and 500 voters in which Mitt Romney received a scant handful of votes (and sometimes no votes at all), a result mirroring that of the previous election, in which Republican candidate John McCain “got zero votes in 57 Philadelphia voting divisions.”

            When the Inquirer went looking for Republican voters in some of those divisions, they couldn’t find any:

            Many parts of Philadelphia and other big cities simply lack Republican voters, a fact of campaigning that has been true since Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal, Jonathan Rodden, a political science professor at Stanford University, said.

            Although voter registration lists, which often contain outdated information, show 12 Republicans live in the [28th] ward’s third division, The Inquirer was unable to find any of them by calling or visiting their homes.

            Four of the registered Republicans no longer lived there; four others didn’t answer their doors. City Board of Elections registration data say a registered Republican used to live at 25th and York Streets, but none of the neighbors across the street knew him.

            James Norris, 19, who lives down the street, is listed as a Republican in city data. But he said he’s a Democrat and voted for Obama because he thinks the president will help the middle class.

            A few blocks away, Eric Sapp, a 42-year-old chef, looked skeptical when told that city data had him listed as a registered Republican. “I got to check on that,” said Sapp, who voted for Obama.

            Eighteen Republicans reportedly live in the nearby 15th Division, according to city registration records. The 15th has the distinction of pitching two straight Republican shutouts — zero votes for McCain in 2008, zero for Romney. Oh, and 13 other city divisions did the same thing in 2008 and 2012.

            Three of the 15th’s registered Republicans were listed as living in the same apartment, but the tenant there said he had never heard of them. The addresses of several others could not be found.

            On West Albert Street, Duke Dunston says he knows he’s a registered Republican, but he’s never voted for one.

            Thus the results in Philadelphia were reflective not of an “impossible” statistical anomaly but rather of a general historical trend widely seen throughout the city.

            In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations — and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. (Another statistical impossibility).

            A precinct-by-precinct breakdown of the official voting results from Wood County, Ohio, for the 2012 election shows that Barack Obama received nowhere close to 100% of the votes cast in any of that county’s 97 precincts. The highest percentage he achieved in any one precinct was 75.5%.

            In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.

            The official Voter Turnout statistics for Ohio show Wood County recorded a total turnout of 64,342 voters, an amount far smaller than the number of registered voters in that county (108,014).

            In St. Lucie County, FL, there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.

            This statement demonstrates a misunderstanding between the difference in “number of votes” cast and “number of cards” cast. The official election results from St. Lucie County, Florida, show, a total of 123,301 votes were cast for the office of President of the United States, but a total of 247,383 cards were cast because St. Lucie County used a two-page ballot (i.e., a ballot consisting of two cards), so every voter who returned both pages of his ballot cast two cards.

            As the web site of that county’s elections board explains: “Turnout percentages will show over 100% due to a two page ballot. The tabulation system (GEMS) provides voter turnout as equal to the total cards cast in the election divided by the number of registered voters. Also note that some voters chose not to return by mail the second card.”

            The National SEAL Museum, a polling location in St. Lucie County, FL had a 158% voter turnout.

            This entry repeats the same error as the previous one. The National SEAL Museum polling location in St. Lucie County had a turnout of 2756 registered voters, but a total of 4469 cards were cast because each voter’s ballot consisted of two cards. The official vote count from that location for the office of President of the United States recorded 1,473 votes for Mitt Romney and 754 votes for Barack Obama.

            Palm Beach County, FL had a 141% voter turnout.

            The official results for the 2012 general election for Palm Beach County, Florida, show that 605,268 out of 870,182 registered voters cast ballots for the office of President of the United States, a voter turnout rate of 69.56%, not 141%.

            In Ohio County, Obama won by 108% of the total number of eligible voters.

            This statement is ambiguous because multiple states (Kentucky, Indiana, and West Virginia) have counties named Ohio. Nonetheless, this statement is false regardless of which of those counties is considered:

            Mitt Romney won Ohio County, Kentucky, by a 67% to 31% margin.
            Mitt Romney won Ohio County, Indiana, by a 63% to 35% margin.
            Mitt Romney won Ohio County, West Virginia, by a 60% to 38% margin.

            Obama won in every state that did not require a Photo ID and lost in every state that did require a Photo ID in order to vote.

            In the 2012 presidential election, Barack Obama did lose in every state that required all voters to provide photo ID, but those states were only four in number: Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, and Tennessee. Meanwhile, contrary to what is claimed here, he also lost in many states that did not require all voters to provide photo ID: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

            (NOTE: If you do not live in Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, or Tennessee, then your state did not require all voters to provide photo ID during the 2012 general election. As shown on a chart of Voter Identification Requirements by state, only those four states had strict photo ID laws in place during the 2012 general election. All other states either did not require voters to provide ID or accepted some forms of non-photo ID.)

            Voter fraud or not, the real problem will persist.

            It’s in the heads of the people.

            Do you really think your vote counts? Its just a joke to me that people think their vote means anything. They make/let us vote for show. It is done only to make us believe we have control. GET A GRIP!! Big Government is in CONTROL!!
            They(BIG MONEY) place who they want in office!! So quit blaming the American public for who is in the White House!! We(AMERICAN PUBLIC) do need to stand up and regain control or we are going to loose everything this country originally stood for!!

          EVERY treaty has been against the united States, & so are the ONES to come !!!

          1. Mark Clemens says

            I’ve been looking at this for 5 minutes, I can’t think of one. Maybe Teddy Roosevelt and the Panama Canal. Surly at least one in the beginning, by the founders………

      2. DivineEncounters says

        It is the better of two evils and the Progressives cannot be allowed to continue. Hillary and O both said they are Progressives. The Republicans finally did something along with the Democrats concerning Iran. They were forced to or loose their own jobs and become obsolete.

        But they did it. This country based on Capitalism. Everyone welcome to make the best of themselves. Look at the millionaires who came up through the ranks without a college education. Look to the scientists and inventors who were bad students and failed everything in school.

        We have fallen and may not get up due to the fall of the Constitution and the influx of immigrants who have not gone through any Ellis Island and only come here to take or to kill us.

        The poison continues to flow over our borders and it is the fault of the people of this country for not staying vigilante.

        1. George Cahonna says

          Its pretty sad we must vote for the party that will do the least amount of damage to the Country. I also know many millionaires that have worked they’re way up & they are hard working great people. But the ones in Congress should be under stricter scrutiny because of they’re influence. A popular DC saying; ” If your not a millionaire when you get into office, you will be by the time you leave”. And concerning the poison flowing over the border’s, Hitler also blamed the “People” for Germany’s downfall. When a politician enter Office they take an oath by the Constitution to protect our border’s. This is all BS on both side the aisle.

      3. Nancy says

        I totally agree with you George. Both parties are out for themselves – big pensions, best of the best health care, big paychecks for working only 60 days a year and all the entitlements they think they deserve, all this with our hard working tax dollars. The ‘house’ needs to be cleaned out and we must demand term limits. We need fresh young blood who will work for us instead of themselves. If change doesn’t come soon, our beloved country will be completely destroyed. Reading an article yesterday, billionaire Steyer says he paid more than $75 million to Obama’s election and will double that for Hillary’s, not to mention how much Soros will pay. Steyer is the person who Obama wants to destroy Scott Walker. Why? Because they are afraid of him. We got to unite and NOT let lying Hillary get elected!!

        1. George Cahonna says

          Were all on the same page here Nancy. Many good Patriots here, & know what needs to be done. We must continue making an effort to make changes. Its the only way to take back our Nation . I am afraid were in for some rough times, but keep in mind “United We Stand.”

      Yes, good point(s), it now time for conservative candidates to stand up and be counted…..not be sickly wall flowers like Romney…

    6. wildeagleone says

      If only all the Republicans will jump on her and keep her on the defensive, the country will see who she really is and just how effective she WILL NOT be up against the animals that are hell bent on the destruction of the united states and Israel, especially.

    7. greyfox says

      A good post, particularly the Sarah Palin comparison. Hillary couldn’t carry Sarahs’ truth and honesty. If you can’t see through Hillary Clinton you are either blind, brain dead or both.

    8. LastGasp says

      Ugly, to boot!

    9. greyfox says

      I sure hope you’re right.

  2. Croco Dile says

    Ferdinand Lundberg wrote in his book The Rich and The Super-Rich (chapter XIII “The Cleverness of the Rich”) :

    …… As there is no other effective way for candidates to get on the ballot, the primary is the political key that unlocks all doors.

    “It ought to be plain, then,” says Kent, “that so long as the machine controls the primaries, it is in a position to limit the choice of the voters in the general election to its choice in the primaries. That is the real secret of its power, and, so long as it holds that power, it cannot be put out of business. Defeating its candidates in the general election not only does not break its grip, it often does not make even a dent in it. The only place the machine can be beaten is in the primaries.”
    As Kent points out, by not participating in the primaries the general voter loses at least 50% of the effectiveness of his franchise. He thereby assumes his actual political status – a second-class citizen. Nobody has chased the common man away from the primaries. He just does not feel up to participating. His democratic franchise here he finds just too much to handle. He does not, in fact, have anything to contribute; he is politically empty. As a result, the party apparatus and candidates on both tickets belong to professionals, often men never heard of in the community, usually men of limited outlook……….

    Tomasky tell us one liberal idea that did not cost the people in one way or another.

    1. BuddyBoy53 says

      Every idea liberals have, destroy someone else’s way of life to cater to their own… You are so right. For whatever reason the 70% just sit back and allow it to happen.

      1. Croco Dile says

        EVERY voter does this, not just liberals.

        All voters are victims of the Authority Cult.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6uVV2Dcqt0

        1. BuddyBoy53 says

          You are so wrong. The majority of Conservatives vote knowing that everyone is responsible for their own actions and survival and work for a living. The majority of Liberals vote as if everyone else is responsible and live off of handouts from those that work. A huge difference. It is true however that every voter is being taken by mass corruption in our government.

          1. Croco Dile says

            Conservatives are immune to the Authority Cult ?

          2. Jim says

            Anybody born of human parents is wholly capable of all from total good to total evil.

          3. IMPCALGI says

            By definition, the answer is YES. We believe that the power of the government should be limited. This limitation starts by putting restraints on what “the authorities” are allowed to do. It’s only liberals and so called “progressives” who believe in the all powerful state. It’s only their bastard offspring the ObamaNazis who invest their “leaders” with semi-divine status.

            It’s funny, but for a group of people who routinely make fun of religious believers for being so “superstitious”, modern libs engage in an awful lot of bowing and scraping and ring kissing. You don’t see conservative voters fainting from emotional delirium: only the Kool Aid drinkers do that

            No he exposed you –

          8. greyfox says

            Limiting the power of government is like asking someone to cut off one of their limbs. The whole and entire purpose of government is to grow. why would any one of the thousands of government bureaus reduce it’s staff and influence, that would be suicide. No one in government is going to reduce their ranks, it’s not in their interest. It is in their interest to grow and increase their number. The idea of a politician reducing government is a political ploy and a myth, designed to get votes.
            The political system, as we know it, needs a complete overhaul, and that my dear friends ain’t never gonna happen.

          9. IMPCALGI says

            So your response is to do what? Cower in your hole and wait for them to haul you out by the ears? Bend over and grab your ankles and every time they tax you, spy on you or push you around, say “please sir, I’d like another?”

            “If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” — Thomas Paine

          10. greyfox says

            I don’t have a response, I am merely making an observation and telling you that government has no motivation to reduce itself, no matter how much you believe otherwise. Do you know what an observation is?

          11. IMPCALGI says

            Observation: useless words being uttered by a cowering wet noodle who has already surrendered

          12. greyfox says

            I need not worry about cowering or surrendering with someone like you, who will eventually bring government to heal and reduce it’s ranks.

            Then tell me about ONE level….. the most important one.

          16. greyfox says

            Not “the most important” but very important. Drug dealers are nor dealing drugs to feed their families, they are dealing drugs to make money. You preach in absolutes, everyone does not subscribe to nor act in the way you describe. You are an angry man and look at only the negative side of society. Many of us are as aware as you are of the ills of society but we also see some of the positive side of society. If we all had your view and attitude, there would be total anarchy. You are one of the problems in society you so savagely attack. Yes you are wrong on so many levels. Have yourself a drink, calm down and realize you are too radical. The most important level on which you are wrong is in believing that you are saying things that most of us know but don’t regard them in such absolute and all encompassing terms. If you toned down your rhetoric and became more specific and less generalizing you may get some agreement. Everything is wrong, except you.

            As long as the belief in “authority” remains, so will oppression.
            The belief in “authority”, which includes all belief in “government”, is irrational and selfcontradictory; it is contrary to civilization and morality, and constitutes the most dangerous, destructive superstition that has ever existed. Rather than being a force for order and justice, the belief in “authority” is the arch-enemy of humanity.

            THE MOST DANGEROUS SUPERSTITION
            by Larken Rose 2011

            Read something useful, little fox !

          18. greyfox says

            Will you ever bless us with some original thought? We can all read the books and quote the quotes. And while you’re at it please use quotation marks when you quote your cherry picked quotes. Just read and quote,never question what you read, never ask why. You rant, rave and quote but you never offer alternatives. What would you have instead of authority, anarchy, anomie? What would you have instead of money, fish coupons, beaver pelts, rats tails? I believe government has over
            reached it’s original purpose and become unaccountable and corrupt. I can see many aspects of our society that I don’t

            agree with and that need changing, but ranting raving and quoting isn’t going to help. Yes, I agree, the political system should change, but to what? No matter how you changed it, there would be those who would disagree. You don’t like authority and power? Look at the middle east, a perfect model.
            Stop wasting your time, effort and talent on rage turn it into something that might bring positive results.

            As if there are actually any real conservatives in our government ? Maybe a few, but very few. Maybe a dozen out of 500 p;us ? I don’t see anybody conserving anything ? I see congress and many so-called conservatives funding Obamas garbage but claiming to be against it all ? There is no difference in the screwing we get ? It is just two slightly different flavors of the same screwing, Red and Blue ! If you cannot see that these days something is quite wrong with your thinking and logic.

            The video does bring up some excellent points. But most Amerikans are too fat, dumb, lazy, spoiled and cowardly to actually realize any of it. Materialism has become our God and the very tool the control freaks use to control us all ! And now the golden goose of USSA has been destroyed by greed and corruption. Both Red ad Blue were part of that destruction ! And yes Obama and crew are putting it all on steroids as we speak. And congress does what ? certainly not what they should do.

            We will all be tested to the max soon enough and find out who’s who in the zoo !

The problem is: we the people are accountable, but the elected ARE NOT!! Therefore the system is NOT WORKING!! This is not because the SYSTEM is bad, it is because the rules are not followed by the ELECTED TO LEAD/DIRECT!!

          1. Croco Dile says

            Karen, do YOU NEED someone (a lying politician ?) to LEAD you ?
            I guess nobody is “leading” you to a supermarket, to your house or is telling you what to do all day long.
            That means you are having the ability to figure things out on your own. Right ?

          Very good video on the fundamental challenge of government. It misses a significant point in that in “theory” we agree or at least acquiesce to delegate or relinquish a portion of our individual sovereignty to government to achieve certain benefits of security and society to avoid Hobbes’ state of life as brutish and short. Or, where the strong subjugate the weak. The video dodges the trials of anarchy where no central authority exists. Yet, we can see these examples in Somalia, Libya and Syria. Human beings are prepared to give up a great deal of liberty to avoid such chaos. It is good to be reminded of the massive numbers of human beings who have been slaughtered by their own governments just as a warning to those who seem to be enamored of giving government more and more power.

            Edicts from on high have, through social engineering, brought this about. But have you noticed it has made absolutely no difference in terms of, “you owe us because of the days of slavery”,. There is nothing can be done to make life equal for everyone. Some individual or group or entity will always have the upper hand. Equality is just a word with no objective meaning, it’s different things to different people and therefore is subjective at best.

You get nothing but a bunch of young people or died in the wool Democrats calling you racists, idiots, etc.

        1. Valor says

          That is because America no longer has a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. The American People have allowed their government to morph into a government of the politician, by the bureaucrat, and for the ruling class. Ben Franklin observed that the American People would have the kind of government they deserve. We are seeing that prophecy fulfilled.

          1. Croco Dile says

            You have made some valid points but you go too far when you undermine the authority and legitimacy of law enforcement. Abuse of authority is never acceptable and should be disciplined and corrected. Civilization can only exist with the joint effort of citizens living together to define appropriate parameters. Without that occurring there will be chaos. You seem to be putting the act of law enforcement in the United States to be a parallel to the behavior of the Nazi Germany government. Either you know nothing about American law enforcement or you don’t understand what the Nazis were all about. Believe me those that lived through what happened in Nazi Germany will tell you you are way off in your thinking.

            The Solution : Life Without the Superstition

            Nearly everyone can see at least some problems with the “government” he lives under, whether it be corruption, war-mongering, socialist redistribution, police state intrusions, or other oppressions. And many are desperate to find a solution to such problems. So they vote for this or that candidate, support this or that political movement or party, lobby for or against this or that legislation, and almost always end up disappointed with the results. They can easily identify and complain about various problems, but an actual solution always eludes them.

            The real solution-the only solution to the problems involving “government”-comes from not doing certain things, and from certain things not happening. In one sense, there is no positive, active solution to “government.” The ultimate solution is negative and passive :
            Stop advocating aggression against your neighbors. Stop engaging in rituals that condone the initiation of violence and reinforce the notion that some people have the right to rule. Stop thinking and speaking and acting in ways that reinforce the myth that normal people should be, and must be, beholden to some master, and should obey such a master rather than follow their own consciences.
            When people stop bowing at the altar of “government” stop playing the games of tyrants, stop respecting arbitrary rules written by megalomaniacs, the problem will go away on its own.
            Human society does not need anything added to it to fix most of its problems, nor does it need the institution of some new “system” or the implementation of some new master plan. Instead, it needs to have one thing, one all-pervasive, extremely destructive thing removed from society : the belief in “authority” and “government”.

            The solution is not to add some new thing to society, but simply to understand and dispel this most dangerous superstition.

          6. Carol Chadbourne says

            I disagree…we have not allowed…and have tried very hard…to get the ‘leaders’ to listen to us……they will not listen…..THEY ARE WHERE OUR PROBLEMS LAY. It is as if they WANT to help b.o.’s agenda to be fulfilled. We need to fire their asses, or, at the very least ‘censure’ them. We are fighting a losing battle with so MANY enemies in Congress, that it isn’t funny. I am about ready to give up and not be so involved……as I have been for 3 years. I’m too old, 72 and not in good health. I was told by one of the factions in DC that I’m on 2 of hizzoner’s ‘lists’…Enemy of the State….and…Domestic Terrorist….cute, right, for a Nana of 7 grands?????

          7. draftsman69 says

            Yes state rights have been abused for far too long. Originally the Fed’ government only existed at the approval of the states, we should put that back the way it was originally set up.

          8. Carol Chadbourne says

            Off subject….has anyone else been blocked from answering e-mails from the conservative/republican factions who are sending out info this morning???? All I’ve been getting when I try to respond to the ‘pacs’ is “This page can not be opened/seen…..I am getting very frustrated…..anyone have any info???

          9. dinkerduo says

            I have to agree with you—I’m of an age that didn’t pay much attention to what they were doing in DC–I KEEP TELLING MY HUSBAND THAT I FEEL GUILTY NOW FOR NOT PAYING ATTENTION AND TRYING TO STOP SOME OF THIS CRAP!!
            I hate to think what is ahead for our grandchildren and great grandchildren–it will be awful compared to how we grew up and lived our middle class lives!!!
            We should have paid more attention–but it’s not too late yet–we need to stand up and rebel at what these progressives and RINOs are doing as they are progressives too–just with an R behind their name!
            I like Scott Walker/Ted Cruz—with Trey Gowdy as Attorney General and Dr. Ben Carson as head of HHS—then vote everyone who has been there for more then two terms OUT!! I think that would be a good start–then force them to give most of the power back to the states! To me that would be a good start!

          10. Michael Dennewitz says

            But the BIGGEST task will be in getting the illegal terrorist out of their before he has the chance to declare martial law. If he’s able to do that, you’ll see mooselums crawling out of the woodwork!!!

          11. draftsman69 says

            From most politicians point of view, we work for and serve them instead of the way it is supposed to be; they serve and work for the citizens.

        2. hankthetank says

          VOTE that BASTARD out!!! end of story !!

        3. BuddyBoy53 says

          Yes you do. You act like we actually still have elections. Like politicians will respond to your concerns with something other than a form letter. Your country has been stolen….A mass march against corruption to shut down DC and show them we don’t care if government shuts down is the only thing that’s going to work. The whole world is watching and a letter to people that don’t read them isn’t going to work….

          1. David says

            Absolutely it is time to march. We put a couple million Americans in DC it will change.

          2. BuddyBoy53 says

            Way past time. It’s the only thing that will stop this corrupt lawlessness, treason and tyrany.

          3. David says

            WE need to get this organized and move now. I do not want to see 50 people standing on the mall with signs. They need to know we’re not f**king around and with enough people we would nullify anything they would consider doing to get rid of us.

          4. BuddyBoy53 says

            Exactly, the more time they have the more corrupt they become. We need to start slamming the Tea Party for not organizing this thing. The keep asking for money and he keep wasting it on BS that goes no where. If the want our donations make them do something wth it. They have the attention of the nation, frigging use it!

          5. BuddyBoy53 says

            Mark Levin is on a roll tonight talking about this lawlessness. 870 am Los Angeles.

          6. BuddyBoy53 says

            It’s the only way it will expose their tyranny to the world. we will film it with cell phones if the media choose to ignore it. Lets not allow liberals to accuse Ted Cruz of shutting down the government as he stands for America, lets do it ourselves and show them we would rather have it shut down than destroyed by Obama!!!!

          7. draftsman69 says

            Unfortunately you are correct. Either voting unresponsive congressmen and senators out or retooling the system is going to have to be done. Voting them out may take too long. We’ve had way too much damage done to our society already via corruption and thuggery.

          8. BuddyBoy53 says

            We have no elections and haven’t had one since 2004.

        4. madmemere says

          Jane -I can’t wait for “chickenpooper” to leave office; I was hopeful he wouldn’t get back in the second time!

          1. dinkerduo says

            I see several Coloradoans on this site—I’m one too–We hoped Hicky would have lost–he might have–but they skew the numbers for their own gain! But we MUST get Bennet and Polis OUT–I just hope Gardner is doing the right things—-
            I’m watching!

          2. madmemere says

            Cory Gardner appears to “trying” to do the right things, but we need to watch his record. Perlmutter, from district #7 is another one we need to bounce; he’s strictly an obama/soetoro/sobarka buttkisser.

          3. Carol Chadbourne says

            It’s called ‘voter fraud’….he should have never been reseated.

          4. madmemere says

            That would not surprise me; we see it happen over and over again. What we need are more monitors at the polling stations. That is, monitors who are not afraid to speak up when they see illegal activity and will report it.

        5. Michael Dennewitz says

          Years ago we fought the communists, now WE ELECT THEM TO CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENCY….

          1. Jane Spaulding says

            Your right about that and Colorado has one of them for a Governor. He tried to send all of the Hispanics to College, we voted that down. Right now he has given them all DL (supposedly) it says in black letter on it. This ID can’t be used for an ID, it can’t be used to vote with either. So what the hell can it be used for Governor. WE now have an Illegal Alien, the paper calls him an immigrant, he isn’t an immigrant he is an Alien that needs a skull surgery and the paper wants us to do a Boo Hoo and start giving him money. Why hasn’t the Catholic church helped him out. Beats me. I am not donating to a person who has sneaked into the USA and now needs an Operation, so what ever body has to buy Insurance.,

          2. Michael Dennewitz says

            I live in Orlando, but I’m sure you’ve read about the judge in Kentucky!? He’s black (of course) and he rails insults at a little 3 year old girl and calls her racist! All because two BLACK thugs broke into her home at gunpoint to rob! Now she’s traumatized and scared to death of blacks!! That makes a 3 year old a racist? Riighttt!!! I wrote the governor and told him a few things, but he was once considered for a running mate to the terrorist in the big house, so that will probably go nowhere…

          3. Carol Chadbourne says

            HE does NOT belong on the bench…..no biased asshole does….like the 2 commies on the SCOTUS. A 3 YEAR OLD…when I read that, my stomach wanted to hurl.

          4. Michael Dennewitz says

            Well, as the ole saying goes, “You are what you paid for,” and that sukkah most likely “paid” for his seat of authority! If no one believes that, then look at how the Republicans stabbed everyone in the back after they won control! Like I keep saying, “Years ago we fought the communists, now WE ELECT THEM TO CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENCY! Go figure…

          5. Carol Chadbourne says

            I really wish I couldn’t agree…but, I’ve found out the same thing. On top of that, McConnell was never supposed to be re-elected in ’14….found out Boehner FUNDED his campaign….and did the same thing in Alabama or Louisiana, can’t remember which at this point…with the donations that we sent to the RNC and the NRCC…pissed me off…excuse me for not being lady-like. But, it re-elected at least 2 rinos. They have betrayed us for the last time. I told Reince Priebus, or whatever his name is, to take me off the mailing list.

          6. concerned citizen says

            Thats why there should b a test we all have to take b4 we’re allowed to vote. If thete were 40 to 60 % would b dissallowed. Mabee then we could b more effective

          7. draftsman69 says

            Well if any communist are elected to office in the US, they are most likely Democrats.

          11. Michael Dennewitz says

            Nope! Not I !! Crazy as it sounds, I voted for Romney!

          12. draftsman69 says

            Romney was not my 1st or best pick but we certainly would have been better off with him than what we have in the Presidency.

          13. Michael Dennewitz says

            The homeless dude down on the corner could have done 100 times better than Ovomit!

        7. draftsman69 says

          My feelings exactly………

      3. RichardM73 says

        Many are trying to not ‘allow it to happen.’ The problem has become we no longer have any representation in Congress. It’s as if they’re waiting for Obama’s term to end, and then they’ll do something. Allowing BHO’s illegal activities to continue by this Congress only serves to destroy our country sooner. We now have a Congress of fools with no backbones standing against Obama. The ones who do voice their dissention against Obama are the very ones Obama likes to call ‘enemies of America.’ Returning war vets, or any vets for that matter; Chistians, lovers of the Constitution and our Rule of Law. Anybody who disagress and voices their opinions against Obama are considered the enemy, especially those who associate themselves with the Tea Party.

        1. BuddyBoy53 says

          Congress is equally guilty of subversion and Treason backed by our law enforcement agencies and courts. We are in deep do-do.

        2. Carol Chadbourne says

          Yip…I’m on 2 of his ‘lists’……lucky me. “Enemy of the State” and “Domestic Terrorist”…….cute trick for a 72 y.o widow…but, at least I have a Taurus. I’d rather die than live with no freedom.

          1. David says

            AMEN CAROL…………………………….

        3. Michael Dennewitz says

          The POS will initiate martial law before anyone can do anything,and technically he hasn’t legally the right!!

      4. Carol Chadbourne says

        I was with you…until your last sentence. SHAME.

      5. draftsman69 says

        That is what is really sad. “Good men who do nothing”. Congress is the worst example. Our congress has the authority to stop this President and his administration from committing all of the constitutional violations they are guilty of, yet they do nothing. According to laws that have been passed and the constitution itself the administration is guilty of not fulfilling the Presidents oath by leaving our borders unsecured and the American people unprotected. That makes our current President and his administration criminals. What has our congress done about that fact, NOTHING!

        1. BuddyBoy53 says

          At this point they are aiding and abetting and just as guilty as Obama. They are all criminals! If they stopped Obama’s crimes they would have no excuse to spam asking for donations to stop him. We have laws to do that. They are leaches sucking America dry.

        1. John Doe says

          Absolutely, I generally don’t respond in any type of hateful manner, I’ve always chosen to reply in a Christian loving manner, love your neighbor like yourself etc. However, as hard as I might try, sometimes they’re ignorance and arrogance gets the better of me. I’ve always been the one that’s turned the other cheek, Thank you for pointing out the log in my eye !

            Sorry, I misquoted it. It comes from Matt 7.1-5 and Luke 6:42, and it uses the word timber, not log ! LOL….I’m just sorry my old bible scholar that taught me for 15 years, was teaching our small mens group Hebrew, he used to take 3 tours per year to Israel, but he and his lovely wife of 65 years moved to Tucson for her health reasons. But again, I can always stand and need correction some times.

            How funny you mention this, one of my best friends three sons are named Joshua, Jacob and Caleb, their daughter’s name is Rebecca ! I think it was Caleb who was the giant slayer. Although Joshua was sent to eradicate the Canannites but failed to get them all.

            There’s actually several other methods, a cheap piece of sisal tied to a branch of a tree, just what Hillary and Obama need. Another is for everybody create a “gofundmenow” site, People that love our country, liberty and freedom to donate to it, outfit them all with custom fitted cement boots, send them on their merry way to the Marianna Trench, tell them there’s something for free their and let them jump overboard. Oh, my goodness, the only good quality I can find in them is they give us something to laugh at for all of their idiotic ideologies. Or we could always resort to the M-134, fires between 2,000 to 6,000 rounds per minute.

American air superiority rules ! If only POTUS hadn’t gutted our military so badly…..Just look at what the Chicom’s have developed, a Naval force with advanced nuclear carriers and such that rivals our own.

But, to his credit, I know I couldn’t face something that looks like her unless the lights were out, so perhaps, he did have a legitimate reason ! It’s also another reason why the silver/copper coating falls off the mirror everytime she looks into one. Remember the wicked witch in Snow White, Hillary keeps asking who’s the fairest of them all

        Watch out; you might well be challenged on that by those wackos who now classify Cronkite as a liberal, the same crowd that would call Barry Goldwater a RINO were he alive today.

          Walter Cronkite’s journalism truth is unequal in todays MSM Marker.
          …….And that’s the way it is.

    This idiot just proves how ignorant liberals are in this country and every time they go on one of their looney liberal rants it just makes us LOOK BETTER AND BETTER ! So keep it up idiot ignorant liberals Every time you and your King Obama say or do anything you just put another nail in your parties coffin ! The American people have had it with their King Obama and his democratic /liberal party and there’s no way in hell Clinton or any other democrat/liberal will be in the White House for a long time ! The liberal media is just as looney as their looney liberal party and the American people know their just as big of a LIAR AS KING OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATIC/LIBERAL PARTY AND CAN’T BE TRUSTED AND THEY ALSO KNOW THE LIBERAL MEDIA IS JUST ANOTHER EXTENSION OF THE DEMOCRATIC/LIBERAL PARTY AND THEY WORK FOR THEIR PARTY IN EVERY WAY SO FORGET THEM BECAUSE NO ONE BUT LOONEY LIBERAL BELIEVE OR CARE WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY OR DO !

    The liberal media is bought and paid for by the commie 0bama.

  9. jsccats says

    I assume Tomasky is pushing drug legalization, open borders, more and more “LGBT rights”, more “out reach” to Dem voting groups at the expense of the GOP base, not fighting “climate change or whatever the latest scam is”, more “working together”, and some of the Libertarian ideas favored by the clueless young base the Pauls have. Well he does write for the Daily Beast. Didn’t the GOP try that with McManic and Romney to a degree and that worked out so well.

    1. Mark Clemens says

      I’m all for drug legislation. In my state it cost about $31,000 a year to lock someone up. Why should I have to pay that to keep a doper sober? That bunk space would be better used for Child molesters, Rapist, Murders, Thieves. Those are the people prison’s were made for. Also if drugs were legal, how would street gangs make money? Drug Laws are your local government’s money machine.

      1. jsccats says

        Ever heard of moonshiners? They were and are active even when alcohol is legal since it is cheaper and they sell to anybody no matter the age restrictions. We are seeing the same thing with tobacco like the recent incident in NY where the guy died during an arrest for selling “loosies” (he had a long CRIMINAL record for that BTW . Much easier to grow your own pot or cook up a batch of meth. You will still have the age restrictions and the tax raising the prices like we see with tobacco, In addition there is a lot of knock off drugs out there plus getting hooked makes it hard to keep employed to buy whatever is legal so those will keep the crime wave going with theft and other criminal activity . Then we have the health issues that YOU will end up paying for as well. Also, who is going to decide what is “legal” since so far it appears that pot is the only thing that is being discussed to legalize. There appears to be problems where the state has done this like in CO and WA. Keep in mind that the gangs active during Prohibition just branched out into other activities like taking over labor unions, hijacking, and other activities. Keep in mind that these border gangs are involved in gun running, people smuggling, and other activities and street gangs will still be involved in robberies and other criminal activities as well. If some of our nanny-staters like Bloombutt and Michelle O get their way they can end up running sodas. steaks, sugar sweets, etc.

  11. MILES E DRAKE says

    We are fearful because we see the country being transformed domestically into a one-party socialist state and know that a tyrannical communist system is not far behind. We are fearful because the country has been weak and risible, is being surrounded by islam and will eventually be conquered. We are fearful because the English language, the Judeo-Christian religious traditions and the free market are severely weakened and obviously slated for abolition. We are most of all fearful because people like Tomasky will be the ones who will expropriate us, marginalize us, arrest and interrogate us, ethnically cleanse us and eventually kill us.

    1. headonstraight says

      And you are fearful because you let your nutjob wacko wingnut paranoia put you there!

  13. Mark Clemens says

    Could I bring something to Mr. Tomasky’s attention.
    Right now (April 18, 2015) The Republicans have three real choices, and one foreigner. I hear there are more to step up!! This is democracy. The Democrats only have one choice (Hillary). That is NOT democracy, it’s socialism.
    Does the DNC owe this woman something?
    Have the rest of you democrats lost your balls?
    Besides murder and death, what does Hillary actually bring to the table?
    She claims she’s” One of us”. How many of y’all have your own personal internet server? Maybe if she would of pointed this out in 2008, Obama might not be “One of us” dumb bitty might of won the DNC nomination in 2008
    Think about it………….

    1. Alioth says

      Your argument that Democrats have only one declared candidate is somehow “socialism” makes no sense.
      What do you think socialism is, and what does the number of democratic candidates have to do with it?

  14. John McGowan says

    This reporter is about a dumbass. Just because liberals think they have the better way doesn’t make it right. In America we can pick and choose our our parties and who we vote for. That is for the time being. As a nation I believe we will fall if our polices do not change. When the liberals take completely over and all the fringe groups are allowed to set policies. SNAP will increase, disability but there won’t be any jobs left. Seniors won’t be able to get health care. My big question is what will they have? A toothless nation with no value. They will have only land but who will work it. How will people be fed. What will the USA turn into. Subjects forced to do field work, forced to make goods in factories, I recall Russia doing that for all but the elite. Folks the hand writing is on the wall. We as a nation has to change direction. I didn’t believe Obama would take it this far but he has. He will settle for only complete failure of out nation. All these rich cats will not be so rich, when our money becomes worthless. All the high powered people, IE Congress, the courts won’t be needed. Think about it, where are we headed?

  15. Vernon Cunningham says

    I find it disturbing that we are called fearful. I am not afraid of government, only th policy makers that seem bent on destroying what I worked for all my life. From my days as a soldier in which I gave some years of my life in support of a great nation. Then 50 years of work, constant work to live the life of a true american. Now I am told by liberals that I am fearful, racist, old whit dude, privileged class. Bull tacos partner. I worked for all that I have. Paid my share of taxes, and gave support to the community. What I see is a man running my country that seems not to understand this nation. he steps on the constitution, and my representatives. Are we to be run by a muslim loving socialist that thinks he is king? Buster brown, I say to you, it won’t happen. we make a noise about things because they are wrong for the country. And you don’t fix what is not broken. In 6 1/2 years our gloruious leader has transformed america into a country that I don’t recognize,. we will change it back to what does work.

  16. HankBar says

    Tomasky is blinded by his love of Socialism. He fails to see that the obstacle course he laid out for the Repubs. are actual problematic disasters that the Dem/socislist has foisted on this country. When the Dems need another bad idea they just look back through history to see what the Nazis or the Communist tried and failed at. The bigger the failure the more the Dem/Socialist want to try it.

  17. Bob Stewart says

    Tomasky is a real comedian with liberal one liners for every occasion. He apparently cares nothing about the rule of law. He cares nothing about the economy of his country. He is blind to the atrocities being committed by illegal aliens as they jam our legal system and jails. He is so ruled by his demented liberal values that he has lost all sense of reason.

  18. Barto says

    Conversely, the Democrat Primary is where the Liberal Socialists make preparations for the USA Legal Citizens to die or succumb to their “death to America” platform.

  19. Tasine says

    There is very little difference between democrats and the old line republicans in Congress, and we should remember that it is the oldtimers who have gotten us into all the messes we are currently in.

  20. Combatvet52 says

    “You can’t be a smart candidate in a party that wants to be stupid.” I guess that puts you on the very top of the list Liberal JA

  21. Linda Lee says

    Tomasky get drilled!

  22. Francisco Machado says

    “Marco Rubio and Rand Paul must give up their progressive ideas…” – How far left of the Progressives can Tomasky be to consider Rubio’s and Paul’s ideas to be Progressive? There are substantially Progressive Republicans – Bush is an example – Rubio seems to have gauged the wind and stepped away from his more Progressive positions on immigration – indeed, the national opinion trend seems to be away from Progressivism, but not in Tomasky’s direction. Or is this another semantic flip, like calling their Statist philosophy “Liberal” or a highly secretive administration “Open and Transparent?”

  23. Alioth says

    “the hate-on-immigrants wall climb, the gay-bashing rope climb, the death-to-the-moocher-class monkey bridge.”
    .
    Republicans would look far less stupid if they actually offered something besides inciting their followers to hate.
    .
    Immigrants for example – what do republicans propose? “Close the border.” What the hell does that mean in real world practical terms? How do you do it, how long will it take, and how much would it cost? No Republican goes anywhere near the practical side of this issue because they have no ideas.

    1. Mr Flippy says

      All these hate allegations are BS.

    2. zappo777 says

      Chinese Wall around the entire circumference of the US Border!! With Guards on the wall and Doors at check points for legal immigration!!!! Jobs will increase exponentially!!

        1. zappo777 says

          Control immigration—and create jobs—price for Security and Protecting our Borders–Willing to pay the price??? COUNT the Cost!!

    3. ArizonaMilitiaDotCom says

      What does “close the border” mean, how would you do it, and how long would it take? A more accurate term would be “secure the border”, which would be pretty darn simple, really.

      First make it a felony to be inside the United States without government permission. That’s what they do in other nations, including mexico.

      If we run out of space for all of those felons, enter into contracts to house the prisoners in Russia. Let them spend a few winters in Siberia and see if they ever want to come back to the United States again.

      Go one step further and sign an Executive Order (which The Zero seems so fond of doing) declaring that anyone observed coming into our nation carrying weapons, drugs, or any other contraband to be an Enemy Combatant and subject to extrajudicial killing, just like all of those contemptible Camel-Shaggers coming across the borders of Afghanistan and Iraq.

      Then take a page from the playbooks of the Israelis and the Swiss and require every able-bodied United States Citizen to serve a compulsory term in the military, train them in Tactical Ground Operations, arm them with decent long irons, and deploy them in those hundreds of federally-owned MRAP armored vehicles to secure our border.

      Disband the IRS, the BATF, the DEA, and all of the other Freedom-killing agencies and transfer all of those overpaid armed federal employees to the Border Patrol so that they can spend some time chewing sand and helping to secure our southern border.

      Transfer all of the federally-controlled real estate in our four southern border states back to the control of the states, as should have been done decades ago.

      Update the National Defense Act of 1983 to *require* that federal military surplus equipment be transferred to the State Defense Forces (not the same as the National Guard) instead of to civilian police departments. Under NDA 1983 (Title 32 of the US Code) State Defense Forces are military forces that are controlled by the state, *not* by the federals, and are not subject to be deployed outside of their respective states.

      http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2010/10/the-21st-century-militia-state-defense-forces-and-homeland-security

      Require that 10 percent of the federal military budget be distributed equally among the State Defense Forces (SDFs) of those four southern border states, in order to upgrade and improve their forces.

      That land along our southern border that was formerly controlled by the federals would be handed over to the State Defense Forces for the establishment of SDF Forward Operating Bases, from which those SDFs would conduct Tactical Ground Operations to secure our border.

      Those SDFs would be given the primary mission of rooting out and removing the hundreds of Observation Posts that are operated by the cartels inside the United States. Destroy those Observation Posts by direct and indirect fire so that the cartels will become blind and deaf. The cartels are only able to operate so effectively now simply because there has never been a coordinated effort to remove their spotter network.

      During the time that it would take to properly train and equip the SDFs, the US Border Patrol, boosted in size by those re-assigned alphabet agency douchebags, would be re-oriented towards conducting Tactical Ground Operations within sight of our southern border, not sitting on their arses at highway checkpoints 100 miles north.

      Put mexico on the travel ban list instead of Cuba. Forbid any and all travel into mexico by United States citizens. Inform the mexican kleptocracy that, until they start keeping people from using their side of our border as a springboard into our nation, they are not going to get another dime of American tourism.

      Put mexico on the list of nations that are sponsoring terrorism, thereby cutting them off from the economic benefits of trading with the United States. Since there is ample evidence that groups like Hezbollah have established cooperative agreements with the drug cartels, this seems like an obvious step for the USA to take.

      http://www.theamericasreport.com/2013/07/08/los-zetas-and-hezbollah-a-deadly-alliance-of-terror-and-vice/

      http://cnsnews.com/news/article/hezbollah-hamas-raise-money-terrorist-activities-drug-trade-south-america-congressional

      http://www.10news.com/news/27780427/detail.html

      http://www.theblaze.com/stories/report-hezbollah-operatives-running-vast-drug-ring-with-mexican-cartels/

      Once the crooked politicians in mexico figure out that their gravy train has been derailed, they will start making changes to secure the border from *their* side, most Ricky-Tick.

      Declare that any and all mexican drug cartels are terrorist organizations, and start sending Predators and Reapers with Hellfire missiles to their known locations. Treat the cartels in mexico the same way that we treat ISIS units in Syria. If the mexican “government” objects to our sending armed drones into their nation, tell them to shut the frack up and get out of our military’s way, or suffer the consequences. Tell them they can pack up their embassy and every one of their consulates and get the hell out of the United States of America. The mexicans should count themselves lucky that United States Marines are not STILL standing in the Halls of Montezuma.

      Before being allowed to trade with the United States again, every one of those football-field sized mexican flags that the mexicans display at every major border crossing would have to be taken down and never again flown within sight of anyone standing inside the USA.

      In short, bend the entire nation of mexico over and spank them until they beg for us to stop. Then tell them what they are required to do before we will allow them to trade with us again. Make sure that they say “thank you”, too.

      It would take about two years to recruit, train, and equip those SDFs to the point where they would become combat-effective. Allow the increased Border Patrol and the US Military to handle border security until the SDFs are ready to take over. Once the SDFs have established their FOBs along our southern border, pull all of those federals back and let them run their silly-ass highway checkpoints 100 miles north.

      THAT is what securing our border would mean, how it would be done, and how long it would take.

    Since millions, particularly young voters, seem to think we need a WOMAN in the White House, sans legitimate qualifications, how about pitting one of the highly qualified Republican women against her.

Good debates are my passion and I would love to see a no holds barred debate between Hillary and Sarah.

  41. James Maxwell says

    It comes down the the fact that Tomasky is a flaming leftist with no ideas of its own to present. So it
    goes back to the same old tried and true attacks with no solution presented and no discussion allowed.
    Based upon what I read it has no valid point of its own and therefore uses the tried and true “Sexist”
    “Racist”, “Biggoed”, “Anti Immigrant” buzz words without any rational, typical when they have nothing
    to offer and see their limited hold slipping rapidly. America is a melting pot but we do require the any
    who immigrate here come thru the front door in a lawful and legal manner, all others are invaders,
    and criminals since they broke the law in their very first act on entering our Nation. As far as the rest
    that are just desperate attempt to to their typical Race Baiting and see what sticks. What a total
    loser with no idea as to what it is saying.

  42. rrecroc says

    The problem with this idiot and 99% of the population is that neither party represents the true basis of any great country …… reason/rationality and belief in an eternal truth greater than the selfish interests of individuals …….. the country was built on sacrifice ………. for a better tomorrow and for a better nation ….. now everyone is a taker (particularly politicians) ….. no, were, they are thieves and robbers and liars ….. both parties, by definition, represent the status quo and now, the status quo means corruption ….. control by the super rich, the corporations, the Oligarchs. Americans should concentrate on starting new parties and putting forth the effort to watch constantly, all levels of their govt and have organizations that seek only the truuth. Sad to say, Americans have been irresponsible citizens since the 50’s and today’s country is the result.

  43. shavager says

    All the GOP candidates AND the party just need to remain CONSISTENT with Republican principles that gave Ronald Reagan a landslide majority in ’80 and a huge victory in ’84, STOP trying to appease everyone–the DemocRAT principles don’t work because they DIVIDE and CONQUER. One group must ALWAYS pay for another group to succeed because there is NO personal accountability or responsibility, it’s ALWAYS somebody else’s fault they can’t succeed. 6 1/2 YEARS of Obama has given us a de-valued dollar on the verge of collapsing under nearly DOUBLE National DEBT, huge $1 TRILLION tax increase and another huge increase he’s proposing now, regulations that are drowning businesses in red tape and costs to operate and an economy that’s the WORST in 50 YEARS because of stagnant growth. While American jobs and businesses are shrinking–he’s been sending BILLIONS of dollars overseas along with MILLIONS OF JOBS! Economic growth under Reagan–8.2% at its highest, growth under George W. Bush-5.6% at its highest–Obama is averaging 1.9% and it’s highest barely made 3% at its highest–and that high was because gas prices have come down, giving millions of Americans more money in their pockets to spend back into the economy. The DemocRAT economy is based on government TAXING and SPENDING, the GOP model under Reagan, W. Bush and Democrat John Kennedy was based on TAX CUTS for the people and the private market and consumers driving economic growth and prosperity. A DemocRAT economy will NEVER work, it’s based on government SPENDING YOUR MONEY FOR YOU, instead of the consumers.

    We are past the place where, reason and votes are the way to deal with the liberal dem bloodsuckers, aka American Jihadists.

The democrats have had unlimited control of the government for the last 6 years. Yet who are they blaming for the problems that they have caused?

    The liberals hasn’t any more substance in their suggestions except how they have been taken advantage of. After being around one, withing five minutes they are complaining about how they have been taken advantage of by the rich while never asking how that man made his money. The vast amount of them had nothing but the desire to achieve and the word sacrifice never entered their minds, but that they did to get what they earned. You liberals want to take from them and give to the lazy asses calling themselves progressive Democrats.

People who fly in private jets pumping metric tons of CO2 in to the air think I need to turn my thermostat up or down as they see fit and want to tax coal to the point that my electric bill doubles when I can’t even afford braces for my kids. They try to take my friggin guns every 3 months or so and they got rid of the tax deductions and tax breaks I needed to make ends meet.

    There’s no fear, only a deep resentment that you feel after you been mugged or burglarized by someone who got off Scott Free in court.

    You sure his name is spelled correctly? Or should it be spelled Trostky?
    He certainly sounds like a communist

    The country would be better off if Democrat primaries were “where ideas go to die”.

  65. 1LTLos says

    One cannot be considered a candidate when they subscribe to Leninist Communism or Marxsist Socialism either moron! You say ideas come to the GOP to die? Look who is calling the kettle black — Socialist and commie ideals died on the vine before the ink was dry when penned by Marx and Lenin! Try reading history and see for yourself Tomasky the huge failure and fraud you embrace and believe in!

  66. Stevon f. Nutt says

    The Left has always tried to pick the Republican candidate. I personally do not want a Rino or Democratic lite candidate. I want someone who will enforce our Laws and follow our Constitution. It seems that the PARTY OF DEATH, the Democrats want to kill off the old and kill off the young and replace us all with handpicked illegals. before the Leftest Liberal Progressive Democrats start their whining consider their controlled Medical experiment called Obamacare. Obama said it himself, “tell Grandma goodby ” when it comes to expensive healthcare after a certain age. Their stance on abortion is the same thing at the opposite end of the age group. You cannot be popular with this group unless you have killed at least one viable fetus. Ask yourself why they hate these two groups so much. Older people tend to see the Constitution as the only law that governs our rights, unborn children have the potential in our society to overcome the indoctrination that they are subjected to and vote intelligently. Both of these scenarios are something the Left would rather not deal with!

    In other words: Anyone who believes in The Constitution, responsibility, following law, and the Founders vision of the USA.

  68. Len Tippett says

    If we buy into this idea, it really does not make a shit anyway. Destruction of America still destroys America even if you call yourself a Conservative Republican while destroying our once great nation. I refuse to be so ignorant as to buy into this bullshit.

  69. RichardM73 says

    The way I see is that the Democratic Party has been co-opted by communist factions. Afterall, we do have a Marxist in the White House, even if you don’t want to accept that reality. And, then, we have those Repubs that we call RINOs (Republican in name only). There’s a great push in our nation to ‘fundamentally transform America’ isn’t there. With BHO at the helm along with his henchmen and women (Valerie Jarret comes to mind), they are all pushing America over the edge with their Marxist policies and creating division amongst our population (Ferguson, MO comes to mind). And, as if that weren’t bad enough, then you have those that pull the race card (Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson). It’s as if our country is being torn apart at every opportunity. Remember, a house divided cannot stand. BHO and his administration are following the Communist Manifesto to a tee. They also are great believers in Saul Alinsky and his ‘Rules for Radicals’ which is like their bible! They seek to destroy America to fit their agenda come hell or high water. Remember, in Alinsky language, ‘the ends justify the means.’ Why do you think this administration (including the (In)Justice Dept.) are against voter id and do nothing to curb illegal immigration? We have an administration that not only looks the other way, but encourages illegals to continue to cross our borders with impunity. This will, in time, if left unchecked and allowed to continue on unabated, destroy our country and our values as Christian Americans. They hate our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, and our Rule of Law. They disrespect our Founding Fathers at every opportunity. We have been hoodwinked America by the sham administration operating out of the White House. BHO’s been caught in so many lies to us, it would take a book to list them. Even in BHO’s own book ‘Dream from My Father’ he wrote that he sought out radical professors to associate himself with. This is who we have running our country?! No wonder none of our problems are being solved. They’re there to make sure they bring America to its knees. There’s no doubt about that. Anybody with half a brain can see that Obama and his administration have been deceiving us from day one. Thank God he’s in his last term!

    What a fool nincompoop…..he is NO different than the liberals he sides with, that have CAUSED the fool situations, climaxing in seating an illegal ‘alien’ into the Oval Office. Who then proceeds to , by treasonous acts, to give our country to the nwo…namely the freakin’ u.n. We voted with our brains in gear, unlike the loony libs who voted for a brown kenyan radical radical muslim…..we voted for the main reason to get the Republicans in control of Congress…House ( 🙁 ) and Senate. We thought THEY would once and for all, come to the conclusion that what the people, TRUE AMERICANS, wanted from them…..ousting the fake prez and his acts and eos out with him. WRONG!! They’ve been sitting on their asses doing NOTHING to help us save our country. You can bet, we will be voting CONSERVATIVE come ’16…..the hell with trying to make boehner, mc cain, mcconnell, graham and other rinos listen to us anymore. The Beast author of that piece of crap is the looniest of the loons…liberals , who are deaf, dumb and blind not to see America is in BIG trouble. MEMO TO BUDDY BOY below….YOU must be sitting on your ass doing nothing. DO NOT generalize. I have been VERY active for 3 years. Between calls to DC, signing petition after petition, surveys and too much…I have done my share,…..and I have to believe a good part of the 70% have as well. It is NOT we who are doing nothing…it is the HOUSE and it’s speaker. Period.

    Tomasky the wannabe commie, states, “You can’t be a smart candidate in a party that wants to be stupid.” Tomasky, in contrast, shows he can be a stupid writer in a profession that has deserted their honorable credibility.

  72. MAHB001 says

    What liberals don’t understand is that all liberals ideas die outside of their protective liberal environment.
    What liberal idea stands a chance with free thinking human beings?

  73. Morton212 says

    Tomasky does have it about right. Thew consequence of the extreme positions taken particularly by candidates in gerrymandered electorates is a Senate and a House that are ostensibly controlled by the same party – but they may as well be on different planets.

    I am not attempting to criticize the content of these member platforms except to point out that they do not consider compromise as a valuable result of legislation, or for the American people as a whole.
    It will be no surprise to see one of the two things happening:
    1) a Republican party that will gradually fade into the background – or
    2) two completely hostile (to each other) factions within the Republican party – with each one seeking voting alliances with the Democrats on every significant issue.

  74. Camp Taji says

    I am moving to a very RED state and build my own Gaults’ Gulch. The only fix I see is a re- assertion of states’ rights as was the discussion in the founding. Let’s start with the end of direct senatorial election and return to appointment by state legislature. Homosexual “marriage”, education, dope smokin’ and welfare are state issues. We already see a shift this way in that there are more Rep. govs in traditionally Dem states.

  75. draftsman69 says

    If the worst Republican primary voters can be accused of is holding strong opinions about what is best for America, that’s hardly a great shame. And if the best the left can do with that is to stomp and call those opinions “stupid,” then they must be running on an empty tank.
