Skip to comments.60 Million votes for the loony left.
Posted on 11/05/2008 5:52:49 AM PST by mapmaker77
I think that the best place to lay the blame for last nights debacle is the U.S Dept of Education. 40 years worth of liberal non-education has paid off for the loony left. I'll bet that out of those 60 million voters that chose the left yesterday, not one in 10 thousand could accurately define socialism. Well, we are about to have to learn about it the hard way.
FReeper teachers have slagged me for saying this before, but I’ll say itagain: Public schools are not for education. They’re for indoctrination.
Nice Post and thread!
I swore an oath, I’ll fight. When libtards are within the sights, I’ll let whatever happens happen. Only for honest folk will I be there for ya.
Essentially. And, of course, those people still expect the bountiful consumer and employment choices made possible by the world’s largest and relatively free economy.
Unfortunately, as you have pointed out, they are unable to connect the dots thanks to the formal education they have received, as well as the horribly slanted news the mainstream media reports and the politically slanted products of the entertainment industry.
Right on. I have concluded that to be a Democrat is to either be woefully ignorant or to be on the take.
I work for an oil company and the bullseye will be on us here in Texas, one of those states who refused to go along with the Dem’s propoganda machine.
Must go to buy a couple of more cases of shells prior to them taxing them away.....
It amazes me that, even in deep conservative states like Alabama, the liberal mindset has managed to take over the schools.
Is it just that conservatives are lazy? Just don’t fight? Don’t get involved?
I guess the problem with favoring smaller govt. is that we don’t want to actually get involved with it to fight it.
It’s far simpler than that.
8 years of Republicans diddling away their hard earned right to govern.
Bush - aside from terrorism, capitulated and signed every drunken sailor spending bill and every stupid law (CFR) that crossed his desk.
House/Senate - Those republicans compromised their way into utter FAILURE.
Us- 16 years of voting for the “most conservative” instead of insisting at every turn, REAL conservatives.
Loss well earned.
Best part of it, we all just sat there like total zombies ourselves and let the local school districts confiscate our hard earned money to feed upon themselves. In turn, they have turned out two generations of good little communists, the second run more liberal and marxist than the other.
There will be no turning back. We have morphed overnight from the USA to the USSA.......United Socialist States of America!
True, but look on the bright side. Not everyone bought into it. In fact, for all the talk of huge turnout, *fewer* people voted in this election than in 2004.
The GOP and conservatives, in general, didn’t bother showing up last night. You can probably blame McCain and his past antics for that. He has alienated a good number of conservatives and they turned their back on him last night.
So what’s the bright side? I think those conservative voters are still out there. The party just needs to field a better candidate.
We have to join the PTA first just like Sarah.
I am sending my kid to private schools she deserves it. if it means no new cars and no HDTV then so be it.
Well, if the left’s past is any indication of what’s to come there will a rather long period of normalization following the election.
They know you are pissed and would be wary of anything they’re doing right now.
Give it six months to a year before you see anything substantial.
They’ll wait for the masses to relax a little.
They will come riding fast and hard out of the gate and assume control in the way that you mentioned.
I don’t think it will the second as you and I would end up in the streets armed for bear/socialists.
So, look for a long pause while they sharpen their knives in the backroom and gear-up for their freedom culling.
“The loony left with it’s brilliant ideas and the law of unintended consequences. Uneducated children grow into uneducated adults who have the vote. And all too often exercize it.”
They don’t care. Hell, they revel in their ignorance, and wear it on their sleeves proudly. All they care about are the freebies they are convinced they’ll be getting. Funny thing, though: Without the tax revenues they’ll get nothing but platitudes. They voted for The Marxist, now they can live with it.
It’s NOT the Dept. of Education, and it’s not the past forty years.
It’s government school, and it’s more than a century.
The most powerful, destructive, fraudulent agency working to destroy the United States is the government school
Government school is also THE MOST SUCCESSFUL government program, because it is accomplishing precisely what it was designed to do: create under-educated, dependent, fearful, obedient drones.
60 million America haters came out in force yesterday. RIP America 1776 to 2008.
64 million voted in the D primaries, but only 62.5 million in the general. Unheard of in history.
Is this PUMAs staying home?
Or did 1.5 million Rs cross over in OpChaos?
“Public schools are not for education. Theyre for indoctrination.”
You said it and you’re right.
Here in NY, we’ve already been told, (ink isn’t even dry on the ballots), that we’re all getting a property tax hike, mandated services for Cathollic schools will no longer be funded, and our latest class of police academy recruits is cancelled and city jobs are going to be cut.
“Is it just that conservatives are lazy? Just dont fight? Dont get involved?”
They’re too busy working and providing for their families. But that’s about to change, since jobs will be at a premium, and the only ones hired will be the ones who swore allegiance to Hussein the Marxist.
Even if you count his 18 million vote and Hillary’s 18 million votes from the primaries, I’m still not getting how you come up with another 30 million. Were there that many new voters?
“We have morphed overnight from the USA to the USSA.......United Socialist States of America!”
That’s a fact. I think it was the American communist Norman Thomas who said America will not be conquered by socialism in a war, but it will vote itself into socialism, and ultimately, communism. Prophetic words, those.
Mapmaker-you are so right-THe brainwashing of teachers and students and the poorly written and biased history in the “Social Studies” books is and has been appalling and “the chickens have come home to roost”. We are reaping what has been sown in the systems of indoctrination. And I now understand how Nazi Germany happened.
When you go look at the North Carolina results, you will see that “Straight Party” Democrat votes accounted for most of the votes. This translates to
the dumb masses following blindly and marking one spot on their ballots. This election was bought, if it wasn’t actually stolen.
(Hint: pronounce “dumb masses” quickly, together)
“the blame for last nights debacle is the U.S Dept of Education”
Balderdash, it is because of lack of character (morality), duty and honor are now foreign concepts, our behavior and choices have led to our decline.
Well said - you are correct on every point.
I cannot understand why “Republicans” think voters will vote for a fake, welfare state supporting, special interest pandering, half-ass Rino/Democrat when they can have the real thing by voting democrat.
We already have one democrat party.
If the Republican party doesn’t stand for anything other than being “Democrat Lite” they may as well disband.
Republicans who want to govern like democrats should just change parties - they will be more comfortable and the Republican party can return to the principles of small government, reduced spending, respecting and enforcing the law and promoting traditional American values.
“So whats the bright side? I think those conservative voters are still out there. The party just needs to field a better candidat.”
You forget all the illegals that are here. Demographics are against us, and the libtards know that. Mark my words, one of the first major acts of Hussein the Marxist will be to legalize the 20,000,000 illegals that are here, make them citizens, and register them as Democrats. And those “new citizens” will vote overwhelmingly for the party of their “savior.”
The Dems outpaced Republican turnout 39%-33%, and the white vote, which is usually around 80% of the vote and votes 55%+ Republican, hit what was likely an all time low of 75% last night.
Looking at those numbers, one would assume that the Dems just swamped our side last night, but given the rather underwhelming turnout, that assumption appears wrong. Taking that into account, I think it strongly suggests that some conservatives just didn’t bother.
“I am sending my kid to private schools she deserves it. if it means no new cars and no HDTV then so be it.”
Smart move. But, you realize that a Hussein the Marxist administration and its eager camp followers in Congress will penalize and punish you for doing that, don’t you? Your taxes are going to be raised to such an extent that you won’t be able to afford to send your kid to private school; and, believe me, they will make homeschooling illegal, as they are already talking about doing that.
I’m afraid that nothing short of a revolution can save the United States now.
Seeing all those kids screaming Obama made me sick. So ignorant of history and socialism and all the rest of the isms but so proud they voted for the man who will teach them all about the isms. Unfortunately, we will suffer with these snotty little, pseudo intellectual, ingrates.
Unfortunately, I have to agree with you on all fronts. There are so many people my age (my sister included who voted for 0) that think socialism and communism are good things that are “new” and haven’t been tried before. I wish I was kidding but this is the BS so many college professors shove down our throats (somehow, I stood up against it and survived). I also agree as far as their three goals:
1. crush dissent, 2. destroy “unfavorable” industry, 3. don’t press on our enemies but readjust things to invade Pakistan
The country is no longer that white.
“And I now understand how Nazi Germany happened.”
Yup. And, believe me: Hussein the Marxist is a fascist, through and through.
And they constantly call you stupid (believe me, just look at my facebook comments sometime) or even threaten to kill you (2 or 3 people have sent me death threats while I was in college) if you disagree
Nazi's blamed the Jews for the financial crises and having all the money. Obamaniacs blame middle and upper class whites for having all the money and financial control.
“I think that the best place to lay the blame for last nights debacle is the U.S Dept of Education. 40 years worth of liberal non-education has paid off for the loony left. I’ll bet that out of those 60 million voters that chose the left yesterday, not one in 10 thousand could accurately define socialism. Well, we are about to have to learn about it the hard way.”
Absolutely, positively, 1000% right on the money. The investment they made in the dumbing down of America that started in the 60’s will be paying off for them electorally for generations to come. In fact, “our” America may never recover. Despite FRs plaintive cries in the wilderness, America slept - and they took over.
American kids have been taught to despise education, and “feelings” became paramount. Where feelings are paramount, science and math is junk.
I agree...it looks as though millions of Conservatives and/or Republican stayed at home.
In 2004 GWB received 62 million
John Kerry received 59 million
Total votes of 121 million
According to the numbers Drudge has on his website...
Obama has 62.5 million votes
McCain has 55.5 million votes
Total votes of 118 million
McCain received 6.5 million less votes than GWB
If McCain had those 6.5 million votes the popular vote would have been basically tied.
To me it looks as though we had 2 problems...
1. McCain was not the best candidate
2. Our GOTV was not what it was 4 years ago...part of that may have been because of having McCain as the candidate.
Most of the "old school" teachers are now retired or have moved into private sectors. Those who are classroom teachers now are products of the public school system and of the liberal institutions that "trained" them. We are now looking at at least two generations that have been trained in Government schools. Why wouldn't they defend the only system they know and are permitted to use in their classrooms? History is now taught as Social Studies. Math and Reading are taught using methods that create ADD and cognitive dissonance in a vast number of our young children,primarily boys. Etc. etc....
It has been my privilege to be associated with Charlotte and many others who have been sounding the warning for many years. Many who heard the warning constitute the vast number of Homeschoolers we have today. I would hope that number will continue to grow.
Note that the first word in the title she chose is "DELIBERATE". The slow march to a socialist society has been carefully and "DELIBERATELY'orchestrated and will go into quick step in the very near future.
That’s how I’m seeing it.
Another way to look at it? Despite having everything possible in his favor, including a weak GOP candidate, overwhelmingly positive news coverage, an unpopular sitting president AND a huge market downturn a month prior to the election, Obama posted a grand total of 3 million more votes than Kerry did in 2004, or about 60,000 per state on average and we KNOW that every loony lefty in the country turned out to vote for him, too.
If the GOP can get its act together, we’ll be fine for 2010 and/or 2012, at least as far as election viability is concerned. The country itself? Well, I expect the Dems to make a total mess of that.
Absolutely correct. The best use of time and energy to counter this maybe implementing vouchers on a much more widespread scale, but it had better be done quick before democrats completely reshape the state and lower courts.
HOME SCHOOL the only way to guarantee your child will not be filled with propaganda. Catholic schools have now become as bad as secular given the infiltration of left wingers into the education system.
Also, this racist Marxist would have never won except for A. bias media
B. ACORN in 21 states
Until these change, we are just another 3rd world county. IMO
Giving you a big AMEN!
Not balderdash! Fact! If your children, if you have any, have escaped the brain sucking factory of public education count yourself very, very lucky. I spent a lot of time with two retired teachers yesterday, conservatives too, and they readily acknowledge what has been happening in the public schools. Unfortunately they had no solution as they think the union has such a strong hold it will never be broken. Both agreed that they would never send their children to a public school in todays “academic” environment.
A 25% dropout rate!!! Where did you see that?
The wealthy, liberal white-guilt driven media and ACORN are indeed major issues on our necks. As are the ill-prepared children that are brainwashed by schools and sent to further brainwashing at colleges when they are old enough to vote.
Say no to the PTA!!!!!!!!!!! The PTA is a national organization of people who want the government to do everything for everyone. But most parents don’t want to see that. They go along to get along. Research the national PTA. It’s just as bad as a teachers’ union. Shoot, it’s an arm of teachers’ unions.
Our problem is character/morality not schools/education nor the “dumbing down of America” ... so there, put that in your pipe and smoke it (remember that from grade school). Define the illness and you are more likely to find a cure.
As I have said before we are not coming under judgment but have been under judgment for the last fifty years at least.
We shake our fist in the face of God and tell Him to get out of our business and take His Son's name with Him.
We tell Him we will decide what is right and what is wrong then proceed to justify and legalize what He calls sin and abomination two of which are child sacrifice and sodomy.
Then we thumb our noses at His strict plain warning not to touch that one little piece of ground in the entire universe that He kept for Himself and says is very Holy to Him.
We stick our noses right in the middle of it and pressure the people there to do our will and defy His.
We meddle with the land and the city of Jerusalem that He continually has His eye on and an intense personal feeling for.
Yes we pressure them to take the land that He says He loves and is Holy to Him chop it up in pieces and give it to their and His sworn enemies who defile it in the worst possible ways.
Yes we are under God's judgment and the heat is being gradually turned up hoping we will come to our senses and return to our first love.
God' does not have to do anything to us but to take His hand off and let us have our own way.
This is God's creation and He is in charge and His will,will be done.
In what I believe is the too distant future He is going to make His presence known in the Mideast in a way that the World and Israel will know It was Him that solves the Middle East problem that man has found to be too difficult.
