REPUBLICANS SCREWED THEMSELVES OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE...AGAIN

YOU'VE SEEN IT PRINTED HERE TIME AND TIME AGAIN...

"ONE SIGN OF INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER WHILE EXPECTING A DIFFERENT OUTCOME."

WELL, THE GOP JUST WILL NOT LEARN.

THE PAST THREE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS SHOULD HAVE TAUGHT THEM TO STOP DISENFRANCHISING VOTERS, BUT THEY CAME RIGHT BACK TO KEEPING CERTAIN PEOPLE AWAY FROM THE POLLS YET AGAIN ,SPENDING MILLIONS TO DO SO.

WHEN THE LAST BUSH2 (LITTLE GEORGE) FAILED TO BE ELECTED BY POPULAR VOTE, THE 'RACE' HAD TO BE GIVEN TO HIM BY THE DAMNED ELECTORAL COLLEGE AND A COURT BECAUSE THE POPULAR VOTE VOTED HIM OUT, 


ONE MAY HAVE HOPED THE GOP WOULD RETHINK AND RESTRUCTURE THEIR "BATTLE PLAN", BUT NO, THEY'RE STILL DOING EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO STOP THE POOR, THE MINORITIES, RURAL AMERICANS, YOUNG PEOPLE, THE DISABLED, EVEN VETERANS FROM VOTING.  

IF YOU'RE NOT AT LEAST A MIDDLE CLASS WHITE PERSON, THE GOP IS DOING ALL IT CAN, YET AGAIN, TO BLOCK YOUR VOTE.

STUPID GOP, AMERICA HAS SEEN THE LIGHT, AND IT ISN'T SHINING FROM THE GOP PLATFORM.

DIDN'T YOU KNOW, DIDN'T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THOSE IN THE GROUPS MENTIONED ABOVE WHO WERE ABLE TO REGISTER AND WERE ABLE TO VOTE WOULD VOTE SOLIDLY AGAINST YOU, GOP?

DID YOU THINK PEOPLE IN THOSE CATEGORIES WOULD STAND IN THOSE LONG LINES AT THE POLLS AND THEN GO IN AND VOTE REPUBLICAN?

NOT IN A MILLION YEARS, IDIOTS!

YOUR TACTICS SHOW US THAT YOU DO RECOGNIZE THAT PEOPLE IN THE GROUPS I LISTED HAVE GOOD REASON TO VOTE AGAINST YOU, WHICH IS WHY YOU'VE SPENT THOSE MILLIONS, MAYBE BILLIONS, BATTLING ACROSS AMERICA TO KEEP THEM FROM BEING ABLE TO VOTE.

THE JIG IS UP!
YOU SCREWED YOURSELVES WHILE TRYING TO SCREW HALF OF AMERICA'S VOTERS AND YOU DESERVE WHAT YOU GOT AND WHAT YOU'LL GET AGAIN.

HILLARY AND BERNIE COULD NEVER HAVE PAID ANYONE TO DO THE BANG-UP JOB THE TOP DOGS IN THE GOP HAVE DONE TO INSURE NO REPUBLICAN WILL EVER BE TRUSTED OR VOTED FOR BY AT LEAST 40% OF AMERICA'S VOTERS. 

EVEN SOME OF THE MOST DEVOUT, LONG-TIME, BIG NAME REPUBLICANS HAVE TURNED ON THE GOP IN UTTER DISBELIEF AT THE POLICY OF BLATANTLY BLOCKING VOTERS ANY WAY THEY CAN BE BLOCKED.  

1/3rd!

YOU RUINED IT ALL FOR THE MILLIONS WHO TRUSTED YOU, AND NOW THAT TRUST IS DISAPPEARING.
IT'S ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE AS ELECTION TIME NEARS.
THE ANTI-GOP MOVEMENT IS NOT AT PEAK QUITE YET.

MANY WHOM THE ELITIST BIGOTS AND RACISTS IN THE GRAND OLD PARTY LOOK DOWN ON AND HOPE TO DELETE FROM VOTER REGISTRATION ROLLS HAVE FRIENDS IN 'HIGHER PLACES', AMONG THAT WHITE MIDDLE TO UPPER CLASS THAT THE GOP COUNTS ON FOR A WIN. 


SURE, THE WAY THE DELEGATE DISTRIBUTION AND THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE ARE SET UP JUST MIGHT HAVE PULLED THE UPCOMING ELECTION OUT OF THE FIRE BY A HAIR'S BREADTH, BUT AS THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES THEMSELVES CONTINUE TO ALIENATE VOTERS, AS THE ONES WHO MIGHT HAVE STILL VOTED REPUBLICAN BUT HAVE NOW "HAD A GUT FULL" OF THE GOP's VOTER DENIAL TACTICS AND SCREAMING LUNATIC RHETORIC, CHANCES OF A REPUBLICAN WIN FADE LIKE EMBERS IN A RAIN STORM. 

MANY GOOD MINDS TRIED TO TELL YOU TO STOP ALL THAT, BUT YOU JUST DIDN'T LISTEN.

AND LOOK AT WHAT THE GOP IS OFFERING AMERICA....DONALD TRUMP AND TED CRUZ....NEITHER HAVING EVER BEEN "AMERICA'S SWEETHEART", BOTH HAVING PUT THEIR FEET INTO THEIR MOUTHS AND EXPOSED THEMSELVES AS WHAT THEY ARE (IGNORANT, BIGOTED, RACIST NARCISSISTS MORE ENAMORED WITH MIRRORS THAN ANYTHING ELSE) SO MANY TIMES THAT NO ONE CAN OVERLOOK IT ANYMORE.

NEITHER OF THE "TOP TWO" CONTENDERS WERE EVEN LIKED BY THE MAJORITY AT THE HEAD OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.
WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING, GOP?


TRUMP APPARENTLY HAS AS MUCH CONTEMPT FOR THE TOP DOGS OF HIS OWN PARTY AS HE DOES FOR THE POOR AND OTHERS HE CONSIDERS "BENEATH HIM".

CRUZ IS TOO DUMBFOUNDED TO BE ABLE TO ANALYZE WHY HE'S UNPOPULAR.
THE MAN IS SIMPLY AN ESCAPED 'VILLAGE IDIOT' FROM CANADA.
EVEN TEXAS HAS A HARD TIME CLAIMING HIM.

AFTER ALL, NOT EVEN 44% OF TEXAS REPUBLICANS VOTED FOR CRUZ!

DID YOU FORGET THAT IT WAS BY SIMILAR, AS IN VERY SIMILAR, WAYS THAT YOUR CHAMPION OLD MITTENS ROMULUS LOST IT FOR YOU?

YEAH, HE LET HIS MOUTH TURN AMERICAN VOTERS OFF...IT WAS HIS ELITIST MINDSET THAT NAILED THE COFFIN SHUT ON HIS PLANS, AND YOURS, FOR A BIG WIN.

YOU CAN USE THAT TIRED, WORN-OUT LINE ABOUT AMERICANS WHO WANT "SOMETHING FOR NOTHING" VOTING FOR DEMOCRATS ALL YOU WANT, BUT THAT WON'T CHANGE THE FACT THAT IT'S REALLY THAT HALF OF AMERICA IS SICK AND TIRED OF THE GOP DOING ALL IT CAN TO STOP THEIR HALF OF THE NATION FROM VOTING.

YES, IT IS YOUR "BETTER-THAN-THOU" MENTALITY!

IT IS DEFINITELY ALSO HOW YOU'VE SOLD YOUR ASSES TO WALL STREET AND HAVE STOPPED LISTENING TO THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY REPUBLICAN PARTY GRASSROOTS PEOPLE.


YOU'D RATHER PLAY THE WHORE TO THOSE BIG NAMES WHO CAN CONTRIBUTE THOUSANDS, MILLIONS TO YOUR CAMPAIGN CHESTS, BUT WHO NUMBER WAY TOO FEW TO GET YOUR CANDIDATES ELECTED.


YES, YOU CHEAT, YES, YOU DO AND HAVE BEEN CAUGHT RED-HANDED DOING SO.
WHILE SOME WILL REFUSE TO SEE THAT, MORE HAVE SEEN IT, AND DON'T LIKE IT.


"The Republican political strategy has been to obstruct efforts to help the economy for everyone but the wealthiest few, and then campaign on complaints that the economy isn’t helping anyone but the wealthiest few.

Republicans have blocked every effort since the stimulus to maintain infrastructure, hire teachers, raise the minimum wage, give equal pay for women, stop special tax breaks for millionaires corporations (especially oil companies), stop tax breaks for sending jobs out of the country, provide student loan relief, help the long-term unemployed, and more. Instead they insist on even more tax breaks for oil companies and billionaires, on cutting environmental protections, deregulating oil companies, and so on."


SOME OF US ACTUALLY READ THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD AND READ EVERY LINE OF THOSE CONGRESSIONAL "BILLS", GOP...WE CAN SEE WHAT REPUBLICANS HAVE DONE AND HOW EVERY ONE OF THEM HAVE VOTED ON THE ISSUES!



SOME OF US HAVE EVEN DISCOVERED THE FOLLOWING:

"In the House, Republican leadership has been following what is called the “Hastert Rule” to obstruct bills that would win with a majority vote. 

This is not a real “rule”; it is a partisan method of limiting what Democrats and moderate Republicans can accomplish. 

Republican leadership will not bring a bill up for a vote unless a majority of Republicans are for it. 

In other words, even if a bill would pass with most Democrats and some Republicans voting in favor, it can’t even get a vote unless it fits with Republican doctrine. (Actually that would be Republican 
funder doctrine, which is basically oil companies, Wall Street and a few ultra-billionaires.)." 


BUSTED....

LIVE CONVENTION COVERAGE SHOWED US A LOT!
AS DID OPEN MICROPHONES WHEN YOU THOUGHT NO ONE COULD HEAR WHAT WAS SAID.


THE WHOLE WORLD WAS WATCHING YOU WHEN YOU TREATED RON PAUL AND HIS CAMP LIKE SCUM AT THE LAST CONVENTION. 

PEOPLE WON'T FORGET THOSE DIRTY TRICKS, AND SHOULDN'T.  
EVEN YOUR PALS OVER AT FORBES MAGAZINE CALLED YOU ON THOSE SUDDEN RULE CHANGES AND FRANTIC MANIPULATIONS TO KEEP RON PAUL OFF THE PODIUM.
THAT WAS SHAMELESSNESS REDEFINED.



Republican National Committee Rule No. 40(b)...YEAH, WE REMEMBER!
AND TRUMP WILL CERTAINLY REMIND YOU OF THAT RULE WHEN YOU TRY TO WRANGLE OLD 'TED, THE CANADIAN' INTO THE TOP SLOT THIS YEAR....SO YOU'LL HAVE TO HUSTLE AND CHANGE THAT RULE YET AGAIN TO "DUMP TRUMP".

LET ME WARN YOU, AS OTHERS HAVE, WHEN YOU DO TO TRUMP WHAT YOU DID TO RON PAUL, EVERY AMERICAN WHO WOULD HAVE VOTED FOR TRUMP WILL TURN ON YOU.
WAIT AND SEE.

WHEN ENOUGH REPORTS LIKE THE FOLLOWING SHOW AMERICA THE BACKROOM TACTICS, YOU MAY WISH YOU'D JUST COME CLEAN IN THE FIRST PLACE?
NAAAAAH...

"Apparently Rule 40 concerning how many States a candidate has to win applies only to the last presidential campaign. 

That was back in 2012.
If you read further you will find when the 2016 will actually have rules.

Why is this?
So that the GOP ruling elite can control the candidate choice.



While No One Was Looking – The RNC Changed the Rules : No Longer 8 States Required

Well it looks like the RNC is up to some dirty tricks.  Interesting that they have the power to make up & change the rules as they go.
Do they really answer to no one?
 Is there no accountability?
I guess not.

They are seeking to do the same thing in 2016 to Donald Trump that they did to Ron Paul in 2012, unseat his delegates and rob him of an honest chance to win the nomination."
IF AT FIRST YOU GET FOUND OUT, HIDE THINGS DEEPER?
IT WON'T WORK, GOP, NOT WITH TRUMP.

HE LOATHES YOUR TOP DOGS.

HE HAS THE BACKERS AND THE BIG $$$$ TO FIGHT YOU.

YOU'VE SCREWED YOURSELVES IN MORE WAYS THAN EVEN I CAN COUNT, GOP.

THAT MUST REALLY HURT.... I SINCERELY HOPE.

WILL ALL THOSE EX-REPUBLICANS WANT TO VOTE FOR A HILLARY OR A BERNIE?
NOT AT ALL, BUT GIVEN THE FACT THAT NO INDEPENDENT PARTY CAN POSSIBLY WIN WITH THEIR CANDIDATES, MANY WILL DO JUST THAT...MAYBE IF ONLY FOR "SPITE".

YOU SEE, GOP, YOU JUST CAN'T RELEGATE HALF OF AMERICA TO YOUR TRASH HEAP, NEGATE THEIR WORTH, DENY THEM A VOTE AND THEN IMAGINE ANY OF THOSE WILL VOTE REPUBLICAN.

HERE'S ANOTHER WARNING FOR YOU....IF YOU PUSH TRUMP AGAINST THE WALL LIKE YOU DID RON PAUL, TRUMP WILL GRAB YOU IN THE CROTCH AND TWIST.

HE DEFINITELY IS THE TYPE TO LEGALLY CHALLENGE CRUZ'S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT.
HE'S ALREADY SIGNALED THAT.
THAT COULD DEFINITELY PUT A KINK IN YOUR PLANS FOR A BIG WIN, RIGHT?

MIGHT EVEN POSTPONE THE ELECTION.


MIGHT EVEN MAKE STILL MORE REPUBLICAN VOTERS TOO "GUN-SHY" TO VOTE FOR HOOF-IN-MOUTH TEDDY IN CASE SOMEONE ELSE CHALLENGES HIM DOWN THE LINE..

THEN AGAIN, IF YOU ALLOW TRUMP THE NOMINATION, HOW MANY VOTERS, WHEN FACED WITH THE FINAL DECISION INSIDE THAT VOTING BOOTH TO ACTUALLY CAST THAT VOTE FOR EITHER A MAD-MAN OR HILLARY, WILL GO AHEAD AND TAKE A CHANCE ON TRUMP GETTING CONTROL OF THAT SHINY RED BUTTON THAT COULD SEND US ALL TO WORLD WAR THREE? 


SALON DID A STORY ON ALL THIS THAT YOU MIGHT DO WELL TO PONDER, GOP.

"
Trump has called the Republican Party “crooked,” “corrupt,” “rigged” and “dirty," SAID SALON.

[IN FACT... "GOP
 elites and their Super PACs blew $67 million on attack ads against Donald Trump.The nonstop attacks against Donald Trump by Republican elites is unprecedented.  Never before did a party work so hard and spend so much to take down that party’s frontrunner. " TALK ABOUT A PARTY SCHISM, RIGHT?]


SALON:  
"GOP chairman Reince Preibus and the poobahs of the conservative media have fired back, saying that the rules governing delegate selection had been in place for months and that it is just too darn bad if Trump is aggrieved.   

Putting aside that, by one assessment ,Trump actually has gotten more delegates than his vote total should have earned him, you can imagine how much more sympathetic the press would have been if, say, John Kasich had been the front-runner and was losing delegates to Trump.
Anyway, Trump’s whining over the naked attempts to deny him the nomination underscores the media’s misplaced priorities when it comes to reporting the real tragedy of Republican voter abuse – one that has gotten some attention, especially and thankfully on this site, but nowhere near the amount it should in the MSM, given how important and reprehensible it is.

I am talking about systematic efforts by the GOP to throw impediments in the way of minority voters, poor voters and young voters simply trying to cast their ballots.
This is a scandal of gigantic proportions. The Republican Party has done a plethora of heinous things over the years to the poor and powerless, but to actively prevent people from voting may be their cruelest and most shameful achievement yet.
In no way should this be a partisan issue. It strikes at the very heart of our democracy where, it should go without saying, every effort must be taken to make voting easier. And yet the media don’t seem to be particularly exercised about voter suppression. Why? I think it is because it doesn’t fit the template of scandal the media love to report.
Think about it. One of our two major political parties has long been dedicated to subverting the democratic process. 

You could almost say that voter suppression and manipulation is hard-wired into the modern Republican Party – from the early 1960s, when William Rehnquist, then an attorney and Republican activist and later Supreme Court chief justice, was accused of patrolling Arizona polling places and intimidating black and Latino voters; tothe 2000 Supreme Court coup d’├ętat awarding the election to George W. Bush by denying Florida voters their choice; to the Supreme Court gutting the Voting Rights Act in 2013 by invalidating the provision that required certain jurisdictions to get federal approval for new election laws.
And now, in the wake of that decision, we have a skein of voter suppression laws passed almost exclusively by Republican state legislatures and signed into law by Republican governors – laws that include cutting back early voting and reducing weekend and evening voting, requiring photo IDs and then making it difficult to obtain them, requiring proof of citizenship, and forcing voters to file dual registration for federal and state elections.
Just a few weeks ago, as reported by The Nation magazine’s Ari Berman, we had the insult of Maricopa County in Arizona reducing the number of polling places in Latino neighborhoods by a whopping 70 percent to make it more onerous for them to vote. Thank you, Supreme Court.
Republicans defend the practice, saying that these laws are necessary to prevent voter fraud, which studies show is virtually non-existent. But let’s be honest. Republicans pass laws to make it more difficult for qualified minority, poor and young voters to cast ballots not because they want to protect the nation from fraud, but because they want to protect Republicans from the swelling numbers of potential Democratic voters.
But I’m not concerned here with the merits of the laws, or even with the disingenuousness behind their passage. This is about media negligence. The only reason that the Republicans can get away with a policy that is beyond unconscionable is that the MSM don’t really seem to care. More, Republicans count on the media not caring. They are like thieves in a corrupt comic book metropolis who know the police will always be looking the other way.
Part of it is that the crime – and it is a crime in a moral if not a legal sense – is right out in the open.
The media love the clandestine.
They love to reveal hidden misdeeds because it seems to empower them. 
You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to see it. For many reporters, like the GOP delegate selection procedures about which Trump is complaining, it’s just politics as usual, which only goes to show how cynical the media are – to our detriment.
 For them, killing democracy is just another political ploy.
Then there is the issue of who is being affected. I can guarantee you that if either party were to devise a method of intimidating white middle-class voters and imposing burdensome voting requirements on them, we would hear plenty about it in the MSM. In fact, if white middle-class voters were disenfranchised the way minority voters are, itwould be a daily headline story. (Many of Trump’s voters, who he claims are being disenfranchised, are working class, and, though white, still are only faint blips on the MSM radar.)
Black and Latino voters don’t get those headlines because they matter much less to the MSM. The scandal of their waiting in line for hours to vote, as they did in Phoenix, barely registers in our major newspapers and TV news broadcasts.

 It is a form of media racism that is too little discussed: the racism of inattention.
Alas, even the good news segments pull their punches.

 A story reported by John Yang several weeks back on the PBS NewsHour, about a poor black couple trying to vote in Wisconsin, where the ID law is especially onerous, was moving (and infuriating), but it was both a rare foray into the human cost of the policy, and a circumspect one, unable to come right out and identify Gov. Scott Walker as the sinister criminal mastermind behind these folks’ disappointment.   

OVER 11 MILLION PEOPLE READ SALON EACH MONTH... SO HOW ARE YOU GOING TO ERASE THIS FROM 11 MILLION OR MORE MINDS, GOP?   

AND THEN THERE WAS ONE OF YOUR "SUPERSTARS", A REAL GOP ACTIVIST, WHO ADMITTED YOU TARGET WOULD-BE DEMOCRATIC VOTERS:
Phyllis Schlafly acknowledged as much with a defense of North Carolina’s new voting law, which has been criticized for its restrictions on access, among other things. 
Here’s Schlafly:
“The reduction in the number of days allowed for early voting is particularly important because early voting plays a major role in Obama’s ground game. The Democrats carried most states that allow many days of early voting, and Obama’s national field director admitted, shortly before last year’s election, that ‘early voting is giving us a solid lead in the battleground states that will decide this election."


 TARGETING THOSE WHO MIGHT VOTE FOR DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES....SHE ACTUALLY ADMITTED IT!


HOW ARE YOU GOING TO ERASE THE SCENES FROM YOUR 2012 CONVENTION FROM THE MINDS OF GRASSROOTS REPUBLICANS WHO WERE OFFENDED BY THOSE DIRTY TRICKS AND RULE CHANGES?

HOW ARE YOU GOING TO SPIN LOSING AGAIN?

AS IF RUNNING ROMNEY WASN'T A BAD ENOUGH JOKE, YOU OFFER TRUMP OR CRUZ?

REALLY?
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?
ARE YOU EVEN CAPABLE OF ONE RATIONAL, LOGICAL THOUGHT?

FOR ME AND MILLIONS LIKE ME, I MUST ASSUME, THE "CHOICE" BETWEEN TRUMP OR CRUZ IS TOO BAD A CHOICE.
MILLIONS WILL CHOOSE NEITHER!

THE CHOICE BETWEEN EITHER OF THEM OR HILLARY OR BERNIE IS MAYBE NOT AS HARD A CHOICE, BUT IT'S STILL AN AWFUL ONE TO CONSIDER.

WHEN YOU SAW YOUR PARTY MEMBERS SPIT ON JEB BUSH, YET ANOTHER BUSH, AND REFUSE TO SUPPORT HIM, YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL.

IF AMERICA DOESN'T WANT ANOTHER BUSH, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THEY WANT A CRUZ OR A TRUMP?
NO....IT'S THE GOP MANY AMERICANS HAVE DECIDED THEY NO LONGER WANT.

YOU COULD HAVE MADE SANER, MORE RATIONAL AND NOBLER CHOICES THESE PAST 12 YEARS, GOP.

YOU DIDN'T, NOR DO I REMOTELY SUSPECT YOU WILL NEXT TIME.

YOU WON'T JUST COME RIGHT OUT AND SAY WHAT YOUR TALKING HEADS THINK, "WE ARE SUPERIOR TO YOU PEONS, SO SERVE US WITHOUT QUESTION! VOTE REPUBLICAN OR YOU WON'T GET A VOTE!"

NO GUTS?

YOU'LL JUST KEEP SAYING THAT THE MAJORITY OF AMERICAN VOTERS ARE "USELESS EATERS", "FREELOADERS", "MOOCHERS" WHO WANT SOMETHING FOR NOTHING, OR THAT TOO MANY ARE OFFSPRING OF "ILLEGAL ALIENS", RECENT IMMIGRANTS, ETC, OR ARE YOUNG PEOPLE HELL-BENT ON SOCIALISM, SO ALL OF THEM WILL VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRAT.

WRONG, GOP.
BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF.

AMERICANS ARE FED UP WITH Y-O-U, PERIOD.

HOW DO YOU LIKE US NOW?

GO GIVE YOUR WALL STREET JOHNS SOME MORE TAX BREAKS, A FEW MORE LOOPHOLES, SOME MORE BAILOUTS MAYBE, USE TAXPAYER DOLLARS TO HELP THEM MOVE AMERICAN JOBS OVERSEAS, SEE IF THAT 2% CAN ELECT YOUR CANDIDATES.  

IT'S CALLED BACKLASH, GOP.

YOU MADE THE CHOICES TO TRY TO SCREW AMERICAN VOTERS.

NOW YOU CAN BEND OVER AND SMILE... BUT YOU'RE GOOD AT THAT...ASK WALL STREET.
