VOTE REPUBLICAN!

MFC_Election_Vote_RepublicanThe results of a new online poll offer cold comfort for anyone hoping that Barack Obama’s election might be the beginning of a post-partisan era for American politics.

A total of ninety-one percent of self-identified conservatives described Obama’s political philosophy as “Socialist,” “Marxist,” “Communist” or “Fascist,” according to the poll, which was conducted between May 12 and 19 on ConservativeHQ.com.

Nearly 2,600 people voted in the poll, including 1,848 individuals who identified their own political philosophy as “conservative.” Only a total of 7 percent of participants described Obama to be liberal (5 percent) or progressive (2 percent).

One can only conclude, then, that conservatives obviously know what they’re talking about. After all, if Obama is a combination of a Socialist, Marxist, Communist AND Fascist, he has to be THE most dangerous person who ever stepped foot on this planet.  There is no way this poll can be skewered to reflect anything BUT the truth. Included is a video that tells you exactly why you should vote Republican.

  1. We laugh at the YouTube video that is so obvious, realizing the satire, while the 24 percenters think (??) what those people said is desirable and real truth. How does a person become so delusional?

    Here’s a Newsweek article about former President Bush and who he talks to now that he’s back home in Texas. Here’s just one example, the article has more and tells a story of a man removed from reality.

    “Patrick Bibb, a 19-year-old from Dallas, glanced at his cell phone. He was in the middle of his economics class at Texas Christian University on a February morning. His caller ID read withheld. He decided not to answer. When class ended, he checked his messages and found that George W. Bush had been trying to reach him.

    The sophomore listened to the voice mail. He heard the former president of the United States thank him at least four times. Bush was happy that the teenager had been selling welcome home george & laura signs for $20 to people all over Bush’s neighborhood in Texas. “I hope this message is sufficient” to show appreciation, Bibb heard Bush say. Bibb dutifully listened, hung up and went to his other classes.

    He settled into accounting class. His phone rang again. Bibb decided to pick up. “Excuse me, I need to go to talk to the president,” Bibb wisecracked to a pal as he left the room. It was Bush again.

    He began thanking Bibb, repeatedly, for making the signs. Bibb listened patiently. He didn’t mean to be rude, but he finally said: “I’m really sorry, Mr. President. I’m in the middle of class.” He needed to get off the phone. Bush replied: “No problem, that’s where you’re supposed to be.”

      LOL yeah George get a dog! It is the other side of being simple minded, his simple mind led this country into a needless conflict and has undermined just what makes the United States worth the defending.
      It also allow for the people that did attack and killed thousands of innocent people to escape and continue to plot further attacks.

      But with a simple mind George Walker Bush needs to have friendly faces and those to counter the others who see him as evil. In a sense he could be one of them, it is a heavy and destructive self hatred that will develop in a simple mind because it does not reason through the problems.

  2. I suppose these poll figures mean something, huh? Other poll figures don’t, but this one which shows what “Conservatives” want to believe must be accurate and worthy. Uh huh.

    Were the, “Nearly 2,600 people voted in the poll” everyone left in the Republican Party?

  3. “socialist, marxist,” etc. Why don’t they just call him a “poopy head baby-eater” and be done with it. Name calling is so GOP-esque.

    The RNC had a resolution before them to re-name the “democrat party” – the “Democrat Socialist Party”. What a bunch of morons…

    Republicans are finding it very difficult to get traction against Obama due to his popularity and the general consensus that Americans really like Obama as a person. Americans have overwhelmingly given their approval to Obama and are even willing to give him time to fix the country’s problems. The average American knows Bush and Gang left a total mess.

    Republicans have tried everything and nothing seems to work – except within their own rank and file. But wait until the 2010 elections, then we’ll see just how nasty the few remaining Republicans become. If, by chance, Republicans pick up a few seats – then we’ll have to see if they are willing to compromise and actually help Obama to fix the country’s problems or will they continue to obstruct?

    The 2010 elections will be huge in the balance of power.

    I, for one, plan to change my Independent affiliation to Republican for the simple pleasure of voting against Tiarht in the primary.

  5. lilacluvr

    It just dawned on me – I will be voting Republican (ha,ha) but just not for the reason the GOP is trying to dictate.

  6. I’m going to make that change to my registration next week! It’s the week of my secret government work so I’ll be downtown anyway. I looked it up and the election office is in the old county courthouse, in the basement. I called to make sure where to go and what I needed.

    I can handle being a registered Republican. I think I can, I know I can! It’s for all the best reasons.

    • tosmarttobegop

      LOL, I say I have been a register Republican for over 35 years. That is in fact a lie though I was not aware of it until prior to the Republican caucus. In 2004 I knew I would never vote for G.W. Bush again and liked John Edwards ( no wonder he lost!). So I needed to vote in the Democratic primary so I changed my registration to Democratic. I also voted for Kerry in 2004, but then never change the registration back until I wanted to go to the caucus. I am more then likely changing it again to Independent after the next Republican primary. Perhaps in a sense for a like reason you are. I will vote for Moran over Tiahrt, I actually think that Tiahrt will win anyway. But at least I can say I did something to try to prevent it.

    fnord – what does one need when changing their registration? And do you know when the last date is to do this?

    The way time is flying by so fast, I don’t want to miss doing this one most important act for the future of my country – am I being to melodramatic?

    Personally, I just want to see Tiarht’s face when he realizes he lost!

  8. lilacluvr

    correction: too melodramatic (I do know the difference between to and too – I proudly went to public school)

    • I got it and no, you aren’t too (or even to!) melodramatic. IF I can stomach it I may stay registered Republican until and unless the Democratic Party is able to field TWO qualified candidates with a chance of winning. I think I’ll know if that happens in ample time to reregister. 😉 Chances are living in Kansas the contested primary contests will be on the Republican ticket. At general elections I vote for the candidate of my choice and don’t need to look for the little letters beside the name or be limited by them!

  9. You can actually do it without leaving home. And, yes, you must reregister in order to change your affiliation.

    Go here, print the form, complete it and mail it in.

    The site says, “Registration is open except for the 14 days before Election Day in the district where an election is held.”

    So there is ample time, but like you say time goes quickly and I don’t want to let it slip up on me.

    Thanks for the info!

    fnord – thanks for the info and I just downloaded the application.

    I also noticed that as an Unaffiliated voter, I can affiliate with a party at the time of the partisan primary election. I did not know that before reading the link you provided. But, to make sure, I am changing my party affiliation so there is no doubt that I will be able to vote against Tiarht.

    I am willing to be labeled as Republican (on paper only) if it means I get to see Tiarht go down in defeat.

    And, as you pointed out, in the general election we are free to vote for the candidate of our choice.

    You are right, in Kansas the only contested races will be on the Republican side. I would much rather see Jerry Moran than Todd Tiarht in the Senate.

  12. lilacluvr

    Has anyone heard which Democrat has stepped up to run against Brownback for governor?

    From the way all these Social Conservative Republicans have been blasting Brownback for his support of Sebelius, it would not surprise me if the Kansas GOP runs a candidate of their own against Brownback. Some people just don’t know when to stop, do they?

  13. The hardest job in the circus is cleaning up after the elephants.

  14. tosmarttobegop

    It is a problem with being a ideologist, you dismiss any contrary evidence or thought that differs from
    your own. For some in the Conservative movement that is the case, you are right and sane and everyone else are the ones that do not have it right and are insane!

    It is a plague that after finally thinking I have not understood, it is correct that so many do vote against their own self interests. The average Republican walking down the street is not the one whom the party and the Conservatives are for. Now to sound like our friend Thunderbird, the goal of the Conservatives is for big business and not for the common man. So why in the world would a common man vote for a Conservative?
    Mainly because they are lost in the ideology and think there is not difference between a Republican and a Conservative. Being stuck with the simple minded concept that it is Republican against Democrat.

  15. lilacluvr

    I think there is a simple logic as to why some common people fall into the Republican lockstep – they are told they are ‘right’ and they are better than that ‘guy over there’ who is pro-choice, is Godless and a socialist

    And some common people are just so fearful of losing their jobs that they let big business do whatever they want, as long as it does not affect them personally.

    Maybe that is why this time when the layoffs began hitting the guys higher up the chain of command, these common people were starting to look elsewhere for leadership and that is why Republicans took such a beating in the election?

    If the economy had not plummeted with Bush and Gang happy to give tax dollars to the Wall Street buddies, would Obama be as popular as he is today?

    Yet, Republicans still balk at increasing tax dollars to help the unemployed and maybe this is why their numbers are dropping within their own party?
