This is what this imbecile had to say about the next douchebag to get his ass handed to him, SPOTH BONER.

"Thank you for the example of firm leadership," Cantor said, "and at the same time for not being afraid to show us all your kind heart and your soft spot from time to time."

The Same Reasoning, which will induce you to admit all Men, who have no Property, to vote, with those who have, for those Laws, which affect the Person will prove that you ought to admit Women and Children: for generally Speaking, Women and Children, have as good Judgment, and as independent Minds as those Men who are wholly destitute of Property: these last being to all Intents and Purposes as much dependent upon others, who will please to feed, cloath, and employ them, as Women are upon their Husbands, or Children on their Parents.

Depend upon it, sir, it is dangerous to open So fruitfull a Source of Controversy and Altercation, as would be opened by attempting to alter the Qualifications of Voters. There will be no End of it. New Claims will arise. Women will demand a Vote. Lads from 12 to 21 will think their Rights not enough attended to, and every Man, who has not a Farthing, will demand an equal Voice with any other in all Acts of State. It tends to confound and destroy all Distinctions, and prostrate all Ranks, to one common Level.

-John Adams

We arguably do not have free and fair elections.

Fraud is rampant and goes unpunished.

Republicans are the blue blood country club banker faction of the Washingtonians, and Democrats are the communist sex pervert faction of the Washingtonians.

It's us outside the Beltway against the Washingtonians from both parties.

It's time to stop looking to DC for solutions to the problems the degenerate sons of bitches in DC have created in the first place.

Cantor apparently didn't realize Virginia was the Capitol of the Confederacy and the home of most of the Founders including George Washington.

So he can take the illegal alien invader marxist parasite aliens he wanted to make citizens and invite them into his home.

Cantor never saw his loss coming.

Eff the DC establishment and smash the system that lets them run roughshod over American values

Any GOP Congressman who isn’t prepared to go to DC to fight the the communists is a sworn enemy of the working taxpayer and must be destroyed.

That includes the GOP-e blue blood country clubbers and their greedy pulled back wives, and any other sorry son of a bitch who thinks campaign commercials are going to beat those who intend to go to DC not to work with the communists and reform the system, but to destroy the communists and smash the system.

So soon? Good bye Eric, it is a damn shame you never lived up to your own goals and competence. Very few will miss you. The real measure is will you go home and work outside of Washington, or will you you stay for the money? Never mind, I should not have asked.

Life is choices and rolling the dice. He made the wrong choice and came up snake-eyes.
I don’t have any patience with guys like him. You know if the feds are picking up the bill, nothing’s too good for them, so several thousand dollars a month for each sounds about right.

They could do what they wanted if they picked up the bill and paid it. But it’s being paid by the only depositors to the account ‘US Treasury’: residents of states that are receiving fresh surprises every day.
He can go back to Virginia and think about things.

DHS Commemorates LGBT Pride Month

June 7, 2012

Posted by Secretary Janet Napolitano

Every day, DHS employees around the world work to ensure the security of our country. They work along our borders, in our airports, in federal buildings and throughout the maritime domain. There are also countless DHS employees that Americans don’t see. At the DHS Pride Ceremony today, I had the opportunity to speak with and thank some of our LGBT employees for their dedication to our Department and our important mission.

Secretary Napolitano meets with DHS Pride Board of Directors

The productive class are now all slaves to DC and the Federal apparatchiks in Maryland and Virginia.

The greatest threat to the Liberty and Prosperity of the productive class are not a bunch of demented ragheads in the middle east, but the Federal apparatus.

COMMUNISM

IN THE U. S. A.

The first of a series on the Communist conspiracy and its influence in this country as a whole, on religion, on education, on labor and on our government

^^No Communist, no matter how many votes he should secure in a national election, could, even if he would, become President of the present government. When a Communist heads the govern- ment of the United States — and that day will come just as surely as the sun rises— the government will not he a capitalist government hut a Soviet government, and hehind this government will stand the Red army to enforce the dictatorship of the proletariat, ‘’

Sworn statement of WILLIAM Z. FOSTER

Head of the Communist Party in the United States

If you ever find yourself in open debate with a Communist the facts here given can be used to destroy his arguments completely and expose him as he is for all to see.

Every citizen owes himself and his family the truth about Com- munism because the world today is faced with a single choice: To go Communist or not to go Communist. Here are the facts.

1 . What is Com-munism? A system by which one small group seeks to rule the world.

2. Has any nation ever gone Communist in a free election?

No. 3. Then how do the Communists try to get control?

Legally or illegally, any way they can. Communism’s first big victory was through bloody revolution. Every one since has been by military conquest, or internal corruption, or the threat of these.

CONSPIRACY is the basic method of Communism in countries it is trying to capture.

IRON FORCE is the basic method of Communism in countries it has already captured.

1 2. What would happen to my insurance? The Communists would take it over.

34. Where are their headquarters in the United States, and who is in charge?

Headquarters are at 35 East Twelfth Street, New York City. Wil- liam Z. Foster, of 1040 Melton Avenue, New York City, has the title of “Chairman of the Communist Party of the United States,” but Foster is actually just a figurehead under control of foreign operatives unseen by and unknown to rank and file Communists.

55. What is the emblem of the Communist Party in the United States? The hammer and sickle.

36. What is the emblem of the Communist Party in the Soviet Union? The hammer and sickle.

57. What is the flag of the Communist Party in the United States? The red flag, the same as that of all Communist Parties of the world.

49. What kind of people become Communists?

The real center of power in Communism is within the professional classes.

Of course, a few poor people respond to the Communist claim that it is a “working class movement.”

But taken as a whole the Party depends for its strength on the sup- port it gets from teachers, preachers, actors, writers, union officials, doctors, lawyers, editors, businessmen, and even from millionaires.

This primary season has to be about drawing lines and targeting GOP-E that is willing to work with the communists and turning the primary into a referendum on communists and their fellow travelers in the GOP.

Naming names.

ANY GOP willing to work with communists needs to go.

Playing nice with the reds is no longer to be tolerated.

The whole RNC/GOP Washingtonian political class in DC needs to be decimated, this is revolution.

Cantor is resigning (from Congress) on the 18th.

I hate GOP vacancies, even during a recess.

McAwful is asked to set the special election for November to coincide with the general election, so the district has a member during the lame duck session after the elections. I’m SURE he won’t try any shenanigans. What’s the law in VA, can McAwful decline to call a special election at all?

>> Cantor is resigning (from Congress) on the 18th. <<

So he loses re-nomination, he's going to go home and sulk and force everyone to pay for a special election, rather than man up and serve out the last few months of his term with dignity.

I'm getting really tired of this BS from politicians who cut and run before their term is over. We really need some kind of law to punish them for resigning early for reasons other than emergencies (e.g. suffered major stroke and is unable to carry out his duties). These unnecesary special elections cause all kinds of problems (remember when Hastert gave Oberweis his blessing to succeed him and he managed to lose a safe GOP seat to an then unknown RAT?) Perhaps its needed even moreso than term limit laws.
