How can the gop win without the African American vote?
How can the gop to win without the Latino vote?
Those ads by a right-wing front group called "Latinos for Reform" -- urging Latinos no to vote for Democrats in the coming election because they haven't delivered on comprehensive immigration reform -- may not be turning out to be such a hot idea:
But the fever-pitch backlash to this advertisement suggests the message could bring about just the opposite effect, by energizing a Hispanic voting bloc that may have been lethargic with a new and compelling reason to get out and vote — by and large, for Democrats.
The Silent Majority is sick and tired of the Tea Bagger noise machine.
So, just who is this Silent Majority? I'll tell you.
They are the quiet men and women in the grocery line when the right-wing cranky woman starts gassing her lunacy out loud about President Obama being a Muslim, being born in Kenya, or hating white people, or that he is cozy with terrorists.
They are parents, who attend school sports events with their kids, and are forced to endure hearing that same old, cranky man in the bleachers talking loudly -- and always loud enough so everyone can hear him -- about that "god-damned Nancy Pelosi" and the Democrats for socializing our health-care" and "taking away our constitutional rights".
This new Silent Majority of Americans includes not just whites, blacks, asians, latinos, but also families that are blessedly mixed racially, and who have a gay child, brother, sister, aunt or uncle that they love dearly. These Americans may not speak up in that grocery line or at the sports event, for not wanting to embarrass their children or because it's just not how they behave. But, believe me, their silence is deadly.
How can the gop win without the middle class?
How can the gop win without women?
How can the gop win without labor?
Is the gop counting on there being more angry white male voters than progressive voters?
Progressives haven't been hating on anything (excepting Rahm Emanuel); we've been begging the government to help people who are going bankrupt because of medical bills, who are losing their homes because they've lost their jobs, who can't even begin to pay for their kids to go to college. Progressives haven't been bashing the military, we've been begging our country to get back on the right track on civil and human rights, and to hold those accountable who took us down the wrong path. If we hate anything, it's needless human suffering. We haven't been railing against productivity and success, but against theft and a rigged game where the big bettors cannot lose.
We've been warning people that it's wrong to take our your pain and insecurities on the insecure who are in pain.
Is the gop planning to resort to the tried true voter fraud meme?
Playing off right-wing fears of rampant voter fraud, conservative groups are exhorting activists to film and photograph unseemly activity at the polls, question voters' citizenship, and follow suspect vehicles to keep the election from being stolen. Voting rights advocates now worry that such instructions—which are at the heart of the right's expansive poll-watching campaign—could encourage harmful and possibly illegal activity.
If you believe the Talking TeeVee Pundit Heads and the Polling Pollster who Poll them, a majority of the American people are going to give the keys to the car back to the party that drove the country into the ditch. Now why would we the people do something stoopid like that? I mean, really?
