How They Plan To Win (or Steal) The Election

The GOP is so filled with hate for the President that they just don’t know when to STOP!!! So as to let one man lose his job, they put millions out of work and the country into financial ruin. They are buffoons performing a clown show and the audience, (the American people – the voters) is certainly not amused.  They are dangerous jesters who have no business running for high political office anywhere in the United States. We would usually laugh them to scorn on any given occasion but, the stakes are too high in 2012. Their wanton recklessness of hate, mixed with fear mongering and contempt for everything “not like them”, is all too real. They try to lie and cheat their way to winning but their skullduggery and their deceptions are completely exposed. Collectively they have no shame because they have no soul.

Here is the GOP strategy on how they plan to win (or steal) the election of 2012:
THE AFFORD CARE ACT is a health care law that aims to improve the country’s current healthcare system by increasing access to health coverage for Americans. But the GOP demonizes it and labels it “Obama Care” hoping to continue the hatred for the President and anything he does or stands for.  They have successfully sold the name
Obama as a poison pill among some of their like-minded idiosyncratic oddballs. They try to distract the electorate with mundane absurdities and complicate matters by using key scare words like socialist, islamo-fascist, communist, when
describing the Law. And they don’t know when to stop!!  

Although the Supreme Court has ruled the law constitutional, today (Wednesday, July 11th, 2012) the Conservative House is wasting tax payers money by meeting to vote on what is already done!!!  Symbolic act? No!!! It is adult buffoonery, a waste of time rather than telling the country their plan to dig the middle class and America out of the
hole they are in.  But then, the middle class for the GOP is not part of America is it?

“2012 or Never - Republicans are worried this election could be their last chance to stop history. This is fear talking.” Jonathan Chait, The New York Magazine.

VOTER ID LAW is nothing but a throw-back to the disenfranchisement which happened after the Reconstruction era. Lest we forget the Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified in 1870. 
This was put in place with the expressed reason to protect the suffrageof freedmen after the American Civil War.
It prevented any state from denying the right to vote to any male citizen on account of his race.  The state of Georgia was the forerunner in instituting a “poll tax” where southern legislatures passed statutes that created more barriers to voting by poor whites and blacks.  This Voter ID Law is an amplified modern-day version of the poll tax of the 1870’s because in one fell swoop it includes the “chronic poor” and the “new poor” of all ethnicities– Caucasians, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, et al.  The piece in the New York magazine sums it up with statistical precision:

“Every year," Chait wrote, "the nonwhite proportion of the electorate grows by about half a percentage point --meaning that in every presidential election, the minority share of the vote increases by 2 percent, a huge amount in a closely divided country." "By 2020," Chait writes, "nonwhite voters should rise from a quarter of the 2008 electorate to one third. In 30 years, "nonwhites will outnumber whites."  Which is why "whites," and especially white men, seem so determined this election cycle to make it harder for nonwhites to exercise their right to vote.
PURGING VOTERS’ LISTS in important "must win" swing States. This action deletes citizens from the list who are of course part of the “super voter” demography. 
INTIMIDATION through force and the threat of physical violence. The use of the State’s security forces and their supporters who are strong Second Amendment advocates. 
UNDERHANDEDLY CHANGING VOTING RULES on the local level using the State Legislature. These State Legislatures are predominantly rubber stamp Republicans backed by the Koch Brothers, Karl Rove, Grover Norquist and/or the Tea Party. 
NON-STOP ILLEGAL USE OF ROBO CALLS with misinformation telling voters not going out to register and/or not to vote on Election Day. A bill the Deceptive Practices and Voter Intimidation Act is being debated as this piece is being written to make it a federal crime to knowingly mislead voters as to the time and place of a public election.  
COUNTER-SUING JUSTICE DEPARTMENT that is suing those States trying to force through legislation barring real Americans from exercising their right to vote. These real Americans are usually none Anglo-Saxons who  overwhelmingly vote for Democrats.  
CLASS WARFARE to “divide and conquer” the people.  As is the pledge of Scott Walker of Wisconsin so is the universal pledge of the GOP. Wedge issues such as abortion rights, welfare reform, immigration, gay marriage and health care reform just to name a few of these issues. This is the modern-day interpretation and application of the divide-and-rule methods of plantocracy.
WAR ON WOMEN playing up to their Christian Conservative holier-than-thou niche. Trying to take away women’s right to chose if they want to have an abortion, no equal pay for equal work, publicly demeaning women by calling them
sluts, demonizing and blaming rape victims, forcing a woman to have that baby even if she was assaulted or inpregnated through incest and forcing her to have the baby even if it means her dying while giving birth. They accuse Democrats of taking women for granted but THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO RESPECT FOR WOMEN!

According to GOP strategist Ed Rollins, the Republican Party can still be summed up as bunch of old white
  Today’s woman has come a long way baby! As Loretta Lyn sings:

 “Well, I don't want a wall to paint but I'm a-gonna have my say
  From now on, lover-boy it's fifty-fifty, all the way 
  Up to now I've been an object made for pleasin' you 
  Times have changed and I'm demanding satisfaction too.”
PAY TO STAY HOME AND NOT VOTE.  With the economy still not what it should be these Republicans usurping their predatory dole out cash indiscriminately. This entices desperate people to stay away from the polls on Election Day. It doesn’t matter if it’s against their economic interests in the short term Republicans bank on the instant gratification – the need to eat and for shelter will outweigh any thought of the future. To some people money trumps integrity and personal pride in voting.  

Republicans all… Christian Conservatives no less…Republican House included and even the publicity-seeking dense dim-wits like Palin, Bachmann, Limbaugh and Allan West - my grandmother riveted it in my head that “good always overcomes evil” and it proves true every time!  So get over it and stop spewing evil and get your act together and start suggesting something that will benefit America.

As the economy improves slowly but surely, the voters will remember when Republican Leaders boldly and emphatically in the first month of this presidency, proclaimed that their only purpose is to “see to it that Barack Obama is a one term president”. The GOP deliberately strangles progress to the detriment of America and because of ideological gain. Barack Obama is leading by example. The GOP continues to throw tantrums but people will let their vote make the real statement in 2012.

Three Goals in a row: Immigration/Dream Act, Arizona Law and Affordable Health Care

What is a hat-trick? hat-trick or hat trick in sport is the achievement of a positive feat three times during a game, or other achievements based on threes.”

Obama runs well oiled political machinery that always catches Republicans off-guard.Obama is like a fox in the box and pounces on the slightest opportunity. Just when his detractors thought they had him, he sneaks up, gives them a nutmeg for good measure and scores goals one after the other. He comes out unscathed, leaving them thoroughly humiliated and in total bewilderment.
The kick and rush method used by Republicans is beyond pathetic. They are grabbing at straws, hoping that the American voters will forget their tomfoolery, while the Middle Class suffers and get redefined as the poor and the poor become the” Under-the-Bridgers” – the homeless. Such play-acting is not lost on the American people. They fail to
realize that Obama is the ultimate play-maker who always makes something good out of nothing. One would believe that Republicans would know better by now---but, they don’t – the keep trying the same pranks over and over again. The definition of a crazy fool is doing something repeatedly and expecting a different outcome. That is so with the Republican Party. Truth be told, they belong in the bush league (pun intended) and not in the premier league of
American politics.

Goal Number 1The Immigration Law/Dream Act
Unlike past and present elders in the Republican Party, who have so far taken a moderate approach to immigration, Mitt Romney has gone ultra right-wing fringe. He is for the mass expulsion of non-documented immigrants and for the ridiculous hope of self deportation. Romney: Self-Deportation Is The Answer.
Good luck with that pig-headed approach. I have one question for you Mr. Romney “Your father was born in the  Mormon colonies in Mexico.  That makes you a child of an immigrant.  Did your father self-deport to America with the hope that someday he might achieve the American Dream to become the President of American Motors Corporation and the 43rd Governor of Michigan and the dream that his son will one day be able to run for President of this great nation?”  Your father is no different from other fathers/parents.  Why then should his dream come to reality and you are
standing in the way of others to realize and enjoy that same dream?  Did you break and discard the mold of that dream after you achieved yours?

All President Obama wants is to preserve that same path that you and your family have enjoyed over time!!!  Is that too much to ask?

Goal Number 2 - The Arizona Immigration “Papers Please” Law
Simply put, where does Governor Jan Brewer get off playing Queen! She and the Secretary of State tried to get the HB 1070 Immigration Bill rammed through the Republican dominated State Legislature. They want to legalize racial profiling which they have been perpetrating for some time now, regardless of harassing American citizens in the  Republican defined dragnet.  Is this apartheid? Is this South Africa?  Oh no!  My apologies South Africa this practice of racial profiling was abolished over 2 decades ago! America if you recall was a big participant in the list of embargos against that country bcause of this practice – oil embargo, trade and arms embargo.  Why then is this Arizona Law smell of apartheid?  

Advantage Obama and Democrats! 
Democrats in Congress must step up to the plate use this wind beneath their wings and show some spine for a change. Stand up for principles against the (GOP) Grand Obstructionist Party.  Blue Dog Democrats, make up your minds if you are Democrats and rather than staying and behaving just like the GOP, get the hell out of the party and stay home.   
Goal Number 3 - The Affordable Health Care Act of 2011 (Obama Care)

In March 2010 the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), a non-partisan government agency, estimates that the Affordable Care Act will lead to a net reduction of $143 billion over 10 years. When the GOP legislators put forward their idea of repealing the Law, CBO estimated that the GOP Bill would add $230 billion to the deficit if enacted, also over a period of 10 years. The new Health Care Law does not intervene at all between doctors and patients, although it does set up minimum benefits for Insurance Companies”. This according to
On July 11, 2012 House Majority Leader Eric Cantor will have a vote in the attempt to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act in the face of the United States Supreme Court voting 5-4 to uphold the Law. Majority Leader Cantor, House  Speaker John Boehner and their fellow Republican lawmakers will continue to try to vote it down as the supreme law of the Land. I invite them to run on this issue in 2012, they would ensure a certain loss! To learn more about
the Affordable Health Care Act, please visit

With the Supreme Court’s ruling, the President and Democrats have gained traction and popularity with America on the subject of Affordable Health Care. Their job now is to properly educate the citizenry on what it stands for and what it
would mean to the general public. Failure to do so (because of Republican lies and distortions), will sink them in the coming election this November. Since the Law took effect, 2.5 million more young adults- the group most likely to be uninsured-have insurance. Under the law, insurance companies CANNOT refuse to cover Americans due to “pre-existing conditions”such as asthma, cancer or diabetes. It also caters to preventative care for women. There will be no cost for mammograms, pap smears and flu shots. By 2014 it will be against the Law for Insurance Companies to discriminate against women by charging them more than men for the same coverage Seniors too will have better benefits. The new law strengthens and protects the Medicare earned and gives new important benefits. There is no ceiling to the amount of coverage– coverage dies only when you die.

Romney’s and the GOP’s Scarcity Mentality

The only rationale to the GOP’s objection to such benefits for every American is because they suffer from the disease Scarcity Mentality.  This is the belief by those who suffer from it that there is not enough to go around.  Romney and the
Republicans are deeply scripted in this mentality.  These “patriots of America” where Liberty and Justice is supposed to be for all see life as having only so much – there is only one pie to share. Should anyone else get a piece of that pie, it would mean less for them. The GOP is definitely inflicted by this mentality.  They are never willing to share recognition and credit and especially power and profit!  And get this - this grudge to share extends to not wanting to share with even the American people who help them in producing the power and profit Romney and his GOP friends enjoy.  Yet they feel that something is being taken from them when the American people receive special recognition, or like President Obama when he experiences remarkable success or achievement

The symptoms displayed by Romney and his cohorts are obviously that of one who is inflicted with this ‘disease’. They go into a defensive mode as a result of President Obama’s or the people’s achievement of the slightest modicum of success. They scream, they rant and lie because the success of others mean failure to them. It is a psychosis.

Principle is lacking at the core of the Republican Party and definitely at Mr. Romney’s core beliefs - but I would urge them, to become more principle-centered human beings.  This is the route to developing an abundance mentality where
they can become genuinely happy for the successes, the good fortune and well-being and for the achievements of the American people.  And daaaaaahhh!
Less you forget Republicans, this is the very reason you are elected to office. You will see that the success of the  American people and as an obvious extension of America itself adds to...rather than detracts from...your lives. 

And by the way…. hold your breath there are more goals coming.
