Itís About to Get Worse for Democrats, A Lot Worse
Townhall.com ^ | May 31, 2013 | John Ransom

Posted on 05/31/2014 5:24:41 AM PDT by Kaslin

Medical research has indicated that people like schizophrenics, or people suffering from mania, cannot distinguish between voices outside of themselves and the self-talk that goes inside their head. It’s just a simple biologic matter of that particular brain not being able to make that distinction.

Democrats have that same problem.

And here’s why: the only voices that are truly outside Democrats’ heads are voices from the opposition that they pay no attention to.

Criticism to Democrats is like a dog whistle. They just can’t hear that frequency.

The media, the bureaucracy, the economists, the government funded nongovernmental organizations and academia all speak inside the Democrat brain. And Democrats can’t distinguish this internal self-talk from legitimate outside praise.

So like people who suffer from delusions, it’s just a simple matter of Democrats not being able to make the distinction between self-talk and reality.

Some research. I doubt that very much.

They truly are knee-jerk in a lot of ways. Listen to Pelosi blaming VA stuff on “underfunding” by Boosh.

Unfortunately for this thesis, it isn’t merely the elected Demwits who suffer (?) from this, and doesn’t merely also include the well-paid NGO agitators, it also afflicts (?) the Demwit rank and file, in large part thanks to the agitprop shills in the MSM, which includes the DNC mouthpieces — NPR and PBS. Thanks Kaslin.

Makes perfect sense to me. And they accuse conservatives of being insular.

And they stick together tighter than a butt super-glued to a toilet seat.

Our side hears every nuance of criticism and falls apart like a sheet of toilet paper under a fire hose.

Agreed. Is there a precise, experimentally-validated definition of “self talk”?

The economy will limp along DESPITE, not because of Obama & Co. 2.5% to 3.5% growth IMHO. One of our many jobs is to help educate the folks that don’t pay attention but still vote. I like to remind them that when we had better than 4% growth and a Republican was in office the media called it “the worst economy since the Great Depression”.

They’re sociopaths. It’s practically a requirement for being a Democrat. I also think you can ‘learn’ sociopathy. I don’t think its a sickness.

About sums up most of the democrat leadership. And if you ever had to deal with a sociopath up close and personal, then you know that for them, lying and deceiving are simply logical steps to achieve their malignant goals.

I’m going to take the above advice and stop trying to analyze insanity (sociopathy). From now on I’m just going to superimpose the face of my ‘favorite’ sociopath over the RAT I’m watching or reading.

I feel the sanity returning already.

No it's not. The Dems have control over every institution in America and have dramatically dumbed down the population. They're only going to get more powerful.

To: Kaslin

I believe we can stick together by understanding the false feed-back.

When there is a difference, a comment, or a distinction between two on the right, the media plays up the distinction. It is a feed back loop.

Instead of hearing our own voices, voices that might have some appreciation for those we disagree with on the right, we hear the media or those that want to delight in the divisions. This is like being in an argument in the tile bathroom — it sounds worse that it should because of the media emphasis.

Let’s not listen to this, lets allow ourselves to work together in disagreement for the common goal.

There is a continuum from external to internal that characterizes cognition, behavior, and perception. At threshold levels, it has been shown that perfectly normal people can err in differentiating between an external stimulus, a low volume tone, say, and a corresponding imagined one. Under certain conditions, this kind of error can occur at more intense levels, such that words which are thought can be mistaken for being actually heard--"hearing voices."

By the same token, under high levels of arousal, a person who is absorbed in thinking may find himself actually verbalizing his thoughts unintentionally--"talking to himself."

Many other symptoms of mental illness can be understood similarly as normal functions carried to excess.

This research btw goes back to the early twentieth century, when people took the scientific study of psychology seriously.

Schizophrenics indeed the last five years proves it.

You have to vote for it to see what’s in it so much for logic and the list is long.

It's already happened. The re-election of Barack Obama was a watershed moment for the United States. He was an incompetent, corrupt, ultra liberal ass-clown with 4 years of unemployment over 8%, and he got RE-elected.

People get the government they deserve. Obama and the liberal politicians aren't the problem, they are a symptom of the problem. The culture and morals of the American people are the problem.

It'll take generations, and probably a collapse, for this nation to heal itself.

It’s About to Get Worse for Democrats, A Lot Worse

Unfortunately, the headline given this piece may have a disconnect attached to it, the possible disconnect between a floundering economy and the implied anticipated Democrats' poor showing in this year's congressional elections. While the economic statistics presented in the article are fairly accurate, and traditionally a bad economy creates big problems for the president's party during off-year elections, we just don't know how THIS increasingly dumbed down electorate will react to that scenario. Plus, 'Rats will get the benefit of all the propaganda their MSM pals can spew out and all the election cheating they can muster.

So is it really about to get worse for Democrats? Hopefully, yes in so far as their election prospects go, but that is by no means a certainty. Of course the 'Rats only care about the economy so much as their election performance may be affected by it. Contrary to their usual campaign mantra, they couldn't care less about how the economy may be negatively impacting "working families," so long as they and their statist economic policies are in force, and so long as they can blame the economic climate on Bush..

Liberalism is more comparable to medieval dogmatism, or communist dogmatism for that matter. Our doctrine is the only true doctrine. Therefore, anyone who disagrees with our doctrine, even a little, is on the side of the devil/reactionaries, and is disregarded/ridiculed whenever it is not feasible to put them to death.
