On Canceling The Informed Vote

Perhaps it is your informed vote being canceled. Perhaps it is mine. Who knows how many informed votes are to be canceled by votes like the ones coming from people who think like this.

"I never thought this day would happen. . . . I won't have to work on puttin' gas in my car. I won't have to work at payin' my mortgage.
You know. If I help him (Obama), he's gonna help me."

Few things leave me speechless.

But I don't even know what to say. I just... don't.

I'm not speechless, I'm just busy heaving chunks. I suppose manna will fall out of air force one and all the believing Obamanites will collect it in sheets? The "evil" rich will mend their ways and start a career in altruisticly producing goods and services for loud-mouthed social parasites like this?

Who is John Galt, anyway?

At least if we do have another depression, worthless, clueless, utterly self-centered and dependent people like this will be the hardest hit. And all the others(including women and minorities) who are willing to work hard might be able to remember how to grow a garden.

Take a look at any inner city neighborhood, look at what happens to neighborhoods when the people in them no longer have to work to provide for themselves and their families. The entitlement mindset is TOXIC and destroys all that it touches. These are truly the worst neighborhoods in the country (high crime including violent crime, worthless schools, no local businesses because they are constantly robbed, etc). This is the change that is coming, it will be 1,000 times worse than the New Deal, people back then were embarrassed to take "relief".

"The entitlement mindset is... (Below threshold)

"The entitlement mindset is TOXIC and destroys all that it touches."

This is quite true. You would think that people would just see what is around them and realize there is no such change that Obama has to offer. He is the same guy he was when he used unethical methods to get into the senate, when he used Annenberg for his own agenda rather than helping schools, and funneling millions of dollars in from questionable sources. That would include the ones from the mideast. His crooked methods haven't changed, so why do people believe he will change anything else for the better?

Jimmy Carter's Mugabe did a similar thing in Zimbabwe, took the white folks farms, and gave them to people who needed them. Then they found having a farm didn't mean you knew how to farm, and now they all starve together. The white folks left the country ... LOL.

The purpose will be to help people who WORK for what they have, HOLD ON to what they have.

It is looking more and more like we WILL need to have a clearinghouse for ideas that will let all who want to BE John Galt (or at least one of many!)

I am more fearful for our Republic than ever before. The enemy that "could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years" (as Lincoln said) is already WITHIN our walls!

I've heard these kinds of comments before. I've heard people looking for a savior and looking for what they are "owed."

I traveled regularly to Venezuela when Chavez was first running for president. Chavez said that the people of Venezuela were all wealthy and that they just needed to vote for him and he would send $1000 to each of them.

The poor in Venezuela are still waiting for their $1000, and now there are food shortages, breakdowns in the electrical grid, and the oil business is in shambles. That's what happens when you turn your country over to someone who's selling hope and change but has never run anything but his mouth.

Some people are just scary.

"Roe v. Wade is segregation maybe?" one new voter guessed.

Another asked: "Was Roe v. Wade where we declared bankruptcy?" And still another wondered, "That was about a black person and a white person?"

The above quotes are from p[eople at a rock concert.

What follows come from people you would think gad a bit more in the cranium, they were visiting the Washington Mall:

People were shown some pictures of prominent Americans, like John McCain and Barack Obama. Everyone recognized Obama and McCain. And maybe half the people knew who Sarah Palin was. But Joe Biden? Most didn't recognize the Democratic vice presidential nominee. Few recognized Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, yet almost everyone recognized television's Judge Judy.

I've asked this before - but what has Obama really done for anyone that turned out WELL for the common folk?

His 'community organizing' flopped. His support of ACORN's lending policies has turned into a REAL disaster. Annenburg Challenge wasted $150 mil with nothing to show for it. Grove Parc? They're singin' his praises from the wreckage.

And he's supposed to be the BEST the Democrats can come up with to run the country? How incredibly screwed up does THAT imply the DNC is?

After Clinton, the D... (Below threshold)

After Clinton, the Dems nominated Al (Plastic Man) Gore. That guy has bought off on a discredited theory of global warming, carbon credits and other junk science. The problem with Gore is that his peers in Washington thought and think that he understands technology and science.

He doesn't. And he didn't at the time. And the Republicans ran a better campaign.

John Kerry is a man of no honor. And that is why he lost, period.

Bush 41 and Bush 43 were from the left wing of the Republican Party and they got the nomination because the right wing didn't have a better candidate. The nominations of the Democratic Party have been from their left wing except for Clinton.

The only, the only reason why Obama will win this one is the economy, much of which is in shambles because of the Democratic Party and a lack of oversight by Bush, if that would have done any good.

If we get another Jimmy Carter, that might be a good thing. Perhaps Palin and Jindall and others coming up will reform the Republican Party and make it once again worth voting for.

And if you think obama is the better choice for president (not so "genius" your self) than I would prefer people like you not voting and selling out our country.

''An informed voter is a voter whose vote doesn't count any more than the vote of a complete idiot.'' --Dave Barry

This is truly scary. When ... (Below threshold)

This is truly scary. When people believe the government will take care of them they become completely dependent and in that dependancy they become deaf dumb and blind. This allows for governmental excess and abuse. Right now it about taking money from Big oil, and the rich nut soon the term rich shrinks and other people are targeted.

This women say she will have no worries. The government will provide. Let look at Platform from a government that did it best to provide for all of it citizens.

We demand that the State make it its duty to provide opportunities of employment first of all for its own Citizens.

All Citizens must have equal rights and duties.

It must be the first duty of every Citizen to carry out intellectual or physical work. Individual activity must not be harmful to the public interest and must be pursued within the framework of the community and for the general good.

We therefore demand:

The abolition of all income obtained without labor or effort.

Breaking the Servitude of Interest

In view of the tremendous sacrifices in property and blood demanded of the Nation by every war, personal gain from the war must be termed a crime against the Nation. We therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits.

We demand the nationalization of all enterprises (already) converted into corporations (trusts).

We demand profit-sharing in large enterprises.

We demand the large-scale development of old-age pension schemes.
We demand the creation and maintenance of a sound middle class; the immediate communalization of the large department stores, which are to be leased at low rates to small tradesmen. We demand the most careful consideration for the owners of small businesses in orders placed by national, state, or community authorities.

We demand land reform in accordance with our national needs and a law for expropriation without compensation of land for public purposes. Abolition of ground rent and prevention of all speculation in land.

We demand ruthless battle against those who harm the common good by their activities. Persons committing base crimes against the People, usurers, profiteers, etc., are to be punished without regard of religion or race.

In order to make higher education--and thereby entry into leading positions-- available to every able and industrious person, the State must provide a thorough restructuring of our entire public educational system. The courses of study at all educational institutions are to be adjusted to meet the requirements of practical life. Understanding of the concept of the State must be achieved through the schools (teaching of civics) at the earliest age at which it can be grasped. We demand the education at the public expense of specially gifted children of poor parents, without regard to the latter's position or occupation.

The State must raise the level of national health by means of mother-and-child care, the banning of juvenile labor, achievement of physical fitness through legislation for compulsory gymnastics and sports, and maximum support for all organizations providing physical training for young people.

Many Germans did not have to worry about healthcare, large Evil profit making corporations, College, Big Walmart stores moving in, Evil war profiteers like Halliburton or the evil interest rates charged by banks.
For all these goodies that were just required to give up their sole,
liberty and blood.

It not just been the NAZI, It been the millions in China, Vietnam, Laos, North Korea. Extreme Socialism always results in unimaginable human suffering for the people it is supposed to help.

Hey, KIDS! What TIME is it?... (Below threshold)

Hey, KIDS! What TIME is it? It's SING ALONG TIME!


One evening as the sun went down and the jungle fire was burning
Down the track came a hobo hiking and he said boys I'm not turning
I'm headin for a land that's far away beside the crystal fountains
So come with me we'll go and see the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains there's a land that's fair and bright
Where the handouts grow on bushes and you sleep out every night
Where the boxcars are all empty and the sun shines every day
On the birds and the bees and the cigarette trees
Where the lemonade springs where the bluebird sings
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains all the cops have wooden legs
And the bulldogs all have rubber teeth and the hens lay soft boiled eggs
The farmer's trees are full of fruit and the barns are full of hay
Oh, I'm bound to go where there ain't no snow
Where the rain don't fall and the wind don't blow
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains you never change your socks
And the little streams of alcohol come a-trickling down the rocks
The brakemen have to tip their hats and the railroad bulls are blind
There's a lake of stew and of whiskey too
You can paddle all around 'em in a big canoe
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains the jails are made of tin
And you can walk right out again as soon as you are in
There ain't no short handled shovels, no axes saws or picks
I'm a goin to stay where you sleep all day
Where they hung the jerk that invented work
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

Some morons will vote for Obama, some will vote for McCain. Shocking!

Gee Hyp... maybe there will be more votes for one than the other, giving that person a win in the 'popular vote'. But it really comes down to the Electoral College, where votes are submitted by the states as determined by population and not proportionally to votes cast in that state, all or none so to speak.

Do let me know how that works out for you.

"It's not our fault the left couldn't produce a candidate better qualified than Bush."

True, again. The demmies want it to be their "turn" in the White House, not even realizing that a vote for Obama would put them farther away.

What has Obama done for the... (Below threshold)

What has Obama done for the people of Chicago? All one has to do is look around in the inner city and the schools and realize he has done NOTHING in his three years as senator there. What jobs has he created? People still live in shambles and squalor and their kids still attend failing schools. Meanwhile, Obama lives in a $2million gated mansion and sends his kids to private school. Real nice. And then there is the white hating racist Farrakahn and radical terrorist Ayers who he lives in the same neighborhood with him...and that racist "church" he attended for TWENTY YEARS who at first denied hearing the hateful remarks, but then later admitted that his preacher was controversial. How can you sit there for that long, be friends with the man, let him in your house and claim to never know how racist he is? You've got to be kidding me! All of these associations of Obama shows a pattern folks. Don't think that these trashy friends of his wont be invited to partys in the W.H. at our expense. The guy is a Communist! ANd the woman in the video is a stupid nut to think that she wont ever have to work again. She thinks whites owe her reparations, and Obama thinks the same thing.

So we can judge candidates on their supporters now? Really, last I checked McCain was being supported by Nazi skin heads.

Anyways I'm assuming she isn't homeless and this is late but Lil'Obama comic isn't right since you have to be working to get the tax credit. So yes people will recieve welfare, but no it won't be for the homeless who don't work.

yihdegoYes because... (Below threshold)


Yes because Obama has promised his supporters that with him in charge America will take care of their needs. So a support expose those views and taking them to the logical conclusion shows the candidates polices.

McCain never ex[psed racist beliefs and in fact the skinheads were not McCain supported just hated Obama. Considering that Skinheads do not like Jewish people and those who assoaicte with them. McCain's friendship with Joe Lieberman would not really endear him.
Skinheads hate immigrants legal and illegal which is direct opposition to Mccain. So I do not see even see how on can draw any comparison between supporter of Obama saying his words and Skinheads to hate blacks (Except for SHARP Skinheads, or Straight Edge) wanting to kill a black man. Politics is not binary. Just cause you dislike one candidate does not mean you automatically support the other person.
I would think the skinheads they would be supports of the Neo Nazi or national Alliance candidate.

hyper - "These idiots' ... (Below threshold)

hyper - "These idiots' votes will cancel out the votes of idiots who believe Obama is a Muslim who is going to raise taxes on the middle class."

If you don't think obama isn't going to raise taxes across the board you're sadly misguided.

The combination of his grossly expansive list of "programs to help the middle class" that run close to or over the trillion dollar mark in cost, plus the part of the budget that are mandatory he will "pull a Clinton."

Assuming he gains office, and I suspect he will, like Clinton he'll be all "tearful" within a few months and propose a hike of taxes for the vast majority of Americans.
