I’ve just been called “ruling class stooge no different from the democrats”.
Funny, I’ve also been called a fanatic who can only accept “pure” candidates. Guess it depends on which fool I’m talking to!
So many people can’t see any nuance or the big picture.
As for vote fraud, it gets thrown around too much by everybody. To allege it in a blowout like this race is laughable. Especially with zero evidence. It amazes me that some people think it’s so easy to effect massive swings.
Fine, you APOLOGISTS for the Ruling Class stooges.
If you think “blowout elections” cannot be rigged with fraud by a machine political system - you’ve obviously never been a precinct captain in Cook County, or took notice how most of the despotic regimes around the world ensure the ruling class party always wins in a landslide.
McConnell said they were going to CRUSH Tea Party Conservatives wherever they found them and make sure they did not have a single candidate for the General Election. How prophetic of him.
I contend since the velvet coup with the crowning of our first dictator, - we saw our last ‘honest’ nationally-impacted election in 2008.
Cook County went National.
>> As for vote fraud, it gets thrown around too much by everybody. <<
I've been on the opposite side of that debate as well, like the 2010 election for Governor in Illinois. You had numerous freepers denying there was vote fraud in Crook County when Pat Quinn magically "won" suburban pcts. where he had no support and ZERO lawn signs a week earlier, and where Mark Kirk supposedly did better in Crook County because he "just worked harder" than Bill Brady, despite the fact NOBODY saw Team Kirk lift a finger to knock on doors in any area of the county that was outside his own congressional district.
Just what aspect of Ted Cruz's persona do you think would not be acceptable in say........ Virginia?
I wouldn’t say that anything about Cruz wouldn’t be “acceptable” in VA, but he’s quite straight-talking and doesn’t sugarcoat conservative policies with touchy-feely language, and that would make him vulnerable to attacks in places like Northern Virginia (look at what happened to Cuccinelli in last year’s gubernatorial election). My point is that each state has its own preferences for political styles.
The AR returns, though low turnout, show a competitive GOP in the fall for governor and U.S. senator, but Democrats could hold both seats. The KY results show Democrats surging: bad scenario for McC’s next round of balloting. Even the TX results from March 4 still showed Republicans heavily favored in the fall, but four nominations to be decided on May 27 may change things.
People in KY are the kind who don’t like to rock the boat; that’s why McC has been their choice, but there was a liberal surge there on May 20, and it may continue into November.
