Why Democrats are winning, Republicans are losing
Fox ^ | 6/24/14 | Cal Thomas

Posted on 06/24/2014 5:53:56 PM PDT by workerbee

**SNIP**

Democrats have convictions. They know what to do with power when they get it and how to isolate, even punish, any member of their party who dares to take a different position on an issue.

Republicans seem to constantly react to the policies of Democrats or slam each other instead of making a case for the superiority of their ideas. It doesn’t help Republicans that they lack the Democrats’ uniformity.

RATS at least pretend to like their own base.

Frankly, the whole essay had me asking myself, does Cal Thomas even understand that the GOP is at war with its own base?

It’s a simple principle of universal suffrage. Once the people figure out they can vote largess for themselves from the public treasury, they do. A majority will ALWAYS vote for the party or individual who promises the most giveaways.

... We are approaching a one party system here in America. There will soon be one party rule and the rest of the minor parties .... including the remaining fractured pieces of the GOP and Conservatives, will only be given lip service and included in the government as a mere formality to appease the old guard.

They’re winning because on websites like this, you are required to pray for Ted Kennedy or get banned. This is a fight TO THE DEATH. You do not pray for Adolph Hitler, Bin Laden, or Kennedy in a fight to the death. We are pussies who do not hate enough.

I think that’s been true since before I was born (1967) though only widely recognized in the last 10 years or so.

Marxists want absolute power and are willing to do anything to get it, including subvert their own country, Constitution, laws, free press and speech, misuse law enforcement, aid our enemies and betray our friends, and lie like the psychopaths that they are.

Otherwise, they are nice to talk to at cocktail parties, before the Night of the Long Knives begins.

The GOP establishment members are feckless, backstabbing scumbags. This IS the primary problem the Republican party must deal with.

Another reason that the commie ‘RATS are winning is because the ‘RATS DON’T “REACH ACROSS THE AISLE” or ever compromise. That’s a dumbass Republican stunt.

"I think we’ve been there already, for the better part of the last two years."

.... Yup ..... I think we have finally reached the point of no return. The political pendulum has been swinging back and forth over the history of the country. But unfortunately lately .... the "Point of Suspension" has been moving America with great speed to the left away from her strength, might and power..... and away from the constitution ...... taking the whole of America with it.

President Obama’s approval ratings continue to plummet

Yes, and there is a strong possibility that the GOP will take the Senate. So why does Cal think the Democrats are winning?

That show was pretty eye-opening. Almost scary, but then not surprising either....if that makes sense.

Most Republicans have no strongly held beliefs or principles. Compromise is easy when you don’t have core principles.

Democrats are emotionally engaged in a what for them is a noble cause. They do not compromise because they are believers in the cause.

Rats do not have convictions, they can screw the neighbors cat on TV and you won’t hear any criticism from their base or their leadership. They are a loose coalition of groups who normally we be fighting ea other but find a home built on empty promises and lies in the democrat party.
One group, the black vote has been used badly, I don’t understand why they stay, but Jessy, an Al keep them all in the barn. They get a few bones but no one else does and their are a lot of examples you could expand on.

Rats do not have convictions...

That's why they CHEAT. Just enough to tip the balance, and put a fraud like Al Franken or Obama in place wielding influence in the force of government. Fake people put him there. It's fake-bridge-meet-a-real-train time in America.

Democrats win because they cheat. They lack convictions in all directions, not just politically.

They have to cheat for one reason: there are more of us than there are of them.

Because in the long run theses are the result of incomprehensibly and desistrious failures of Democratic policy and leadership under Obama. Not republican acts which seem only to benefit by default.

Cal is right about a lot of things, the Democrats are far more ideologically uniform, they aren’t at war with themselves, and perhaps most importantly at the root of it all, Their goals of Socialist power line up rather neatly with the General Goals of power hungry politicians.

What the left won’t recognize until its far too late much as they never do is that the leaders of their socialist revolution, the ones handing out all the reaming goodies stolen from the dwindling fruitful will become dictators not benevolent overloads, nor will they ever give up such power, and there will be no power on this earth that will be strong enough to stop them by the time their done.

The left’s dreams are very much achievable short term, but they invulnerably start to fall apart medium term, and long term they turn into uncontrollable despotism.

That is the nature of the very power they play with, the power that makes them strong today but will make us all slaves tomorrow.

“Screw all that. “ Thee who controls the information controls the people.””
This is in fact true to the extent that you can control information.

The left has one fatal weakness, unfortunately that weakness is in their compete failure to comprehend human nature and understand the true nature of their supposed allies.

The very forces they uses to achieve their ‘victory’ are running the show more than they are and in the end will abandon them, as soon as they are no longer necessary.
