It’s no wonder they’re vile - Satan is obviously the founder of their ideology, and they are working to establish his kingdom of misery here on earth.

Let’s do it again:

Romney 100, Obama 100, minus you, R 99, O 100, O by 1

Romney 100, Obama 100, plus liberal terd, R 100, O 101, O by 1

Is this too Sesame Street Level? O by 1, thanks a bunch.

If your driving over the cliff does it really matter how fast their driving the car?

And perhaps, JUST PERHAPS, option #3 will kick in and Romney won't drive it off the cliff. But we KNOW damn well that Obama can't wait to watch the car go up in flames.

“Is this too Sesame Street Level?”

As I said before, your ability does not reach that far. Your example is not too Sesame Street, it is not up to even that standard.

The new GOP math really does explain a lot of things.

If the Reps keep the House and get the Senate, I bet Romney will not veto anything coming to his desk. Maybe I am wrong and should go third party for MrNoVotus. Maybe I am right and we will get 80% of what we want versus 0.

One thing I noticed about the lefties’ comments, per usual, they don’t actually attempt to refute any of the statements made, just say it’s “bllsht” or call other commentors names.

Yep, that's why I won't even bother with a comment. You might as well pick a fight in a mental ward.

It still has the same numbers now.

Looks as if there is also a second video with the same name, did not have time to watch.

Thanks to Freeper Heart of Georgia for the following transcript:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2875740/posts?page=95#95

I typed it out in case it disappears. Hope the author doesn’t mind [also hope I got the words right]. But if there’s a copyright issue of some sort, someone please tell me how to notify the moderator to delete my post.

Credit to FreeMarketAmerica.org “If I Wanted America to Fail” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZ-4gnNz0vc&feature=player_embedded

If I wanted America to fail…to follow, not lead - to suffer, not prosper - to despair, not dream…I’d start with energy.

I’d come off America’s supply of cheap, abundant energy.

I couldn’t take it by force - so I’d make Americans feel guilty about using the energy that heats their homes, fuels their cars, runs their businesses and powers their economy.

I’d make cheap energy expensive - so that expensive energy would seem cheap.

I would empower unelected bureaucrats to all but outlaw America’s most abundant sources of energy.

And after banning its use in America, I’d make it illegal for American companies to ship it overseas.

If I wanted America to fail:

I’d use their schools to teach one generation of Americans that their factories and their cars will cause a new ice age…

…and I’d muster a straight face so I could teach the next generation that they’re causing global warming.

When it’s cold out, I’d call it climate change, instead.

I’d imply that America’s cities and factories could run on wind power and wishes.

I’d teach children how to ignore the hypocrisy of condemning logging, mining, and farming…while having roofs over their heads, heat in their homes, and food on their tables.

I would never teach children that the free market is the only force - in human history - to uplift the poor, establish the middle class, and create lasting prosperity.

Instead, I’d demonize prosperity itself, so they will not miss…what they will never have.

If I wanted America to fail:

I would create countless new regulations and seldom cancel old ones.

It would be so complicated that only bureaucrats, lawyers, and lobbyists could understand them.

That way, small businesses with big ideas…wouldn’t stand a chance - and I would never have to worry about another Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, or…Steve Jobs.

I would ridicule, as flat-Earthers, those who urge them to lower energy costs by increasing supply.

And when the evangelists of common sense try to remind people about the laws of supply and demand, I’d enlist a sympathetic media to drown them out.

If I wanted America to fail:

I’d empower unaccountable bureaucracies - seated in a distant capital - to bully Americans out of their dreams and their property rights.

I’d send federal agents to raid guitar factories for using the wrong kind of wood.

I’d force homeowners to tear down their own homes - built on their own land.

I’d make it almost impossible for farmers to farm, miners to mine, loggers to log, and builders to build.

Because I don’t believe in free markets, I’d invent false ones.

I’d devise fictitious products - like carbon credits - and trade them in imaginary markets.

I’d convince people that this would “create jobs” and be “good for the economy.”

If I wanted America to fail:

For every concern, I’d invent a crisis, and for every crisis, I’d invent the cause…

…like shutting down entire industries and killing tens of thousands of jobs in the name of saving spotted owls.

And when everyone learned the stunning irony - that the owls were the victims of their larger cousins, and not people - it would already be decades too late.

If I wanted America to fail:

I’d make it easier to stop commerce than to start it, easier to kill jobs than create them, more fashionable to resent success than to seek it.

When industries seek to create jobs, I’d file lawsuits to stop them, and then I’d make taxpayers pay…for my lawyers.

If I wanted America to fail:

I would transform the environmental agenda from a document of conservation - to an economic suicide pact.

I would concede entire industries to our economic rivals by imposing regulations that cost trillions.

I would celebrate those who preach environmental austerity in public - while indulging a lavish lifestyle in private.

I’d convince Americans that Europe…has it right…and that America has it wrong.

If I wanted America to fail:

I would prey on the goodness - and the decency - of ordinary Americans.

I would only need to convince them - that all of this - is for the greater good.

If I wanted America to fail, I…I suppose I wouldn’t change a thing.

You might as well give up on him/her. This is the same thinking that gave us Bill Clinton by voting for Perot. Too dumb to understand and too arrogant to realize it. I hate Romney with a passion, but there are only going to be two candidates with a possibility of winning come November. If those two are Romney and Obama I will man up and vote Romney.

Mathematically, a third party vote is not the same as a vote for Obama though. It's like 1/2 vote. But they certainly count and can easily swing the election. 538 (more) people in Florida doing this back in November of 2000 would have meant an AlGore win. Period.

“I am a YouTube Partner. The views and subs stats stall all the time. No big deal. The counter display will catch up.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not as uncomplicated as merely stalled. The count on Monday night was just under 800,000. Posted the following on the Rush thread today.:

Either the YouTube counter is malfunctioning, OR they are suppressing the count.

Monday night when I watched it and emailed it out, the count was pushing 800,000.

Tuesday noon, when I posted to Rush if he had seen the video, the count was 295,089.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2875895/posts?page=31#31

Today (Wed) Drudge carried the YouTube link all morning under the mysterious headline (major, featured large-type headline) “’ECONOMIC SUICIDE PACT’...”

As of 11am this morning (Wed), the count was 517,412. Highly dubious. Hundreds of thousands of people have gone to that video this morning alone from the Drudge page.

As I type (2:30pm), the count now stands at 517,844-— still significantly under the view-count of nearly 800,000 that was registered on YouTube Monday night-—even though the video had been highlighted or embedded in

breitbart.com
hotair.com
pjmedia.com
realclearpolitics.com
facebook.com
And, Michelle Malkin’s website (not listed by YouTube)

Now, it has been mentioned by Rush, and the counter still has not moved one unit.

It has gone viral, but we will never know the true count.

“I have seen the view count “stalled” many times on You Boob.”

Yep, they need to freeze the number of views to create the false impression that the video is not having a big impact. This is typical tactic of the liberal playbook. The economic manipulators at BLS must be envious.

MEGA-viral?

Puh-leeze. What does that even mean? Does everyone remember that YouTube video of that father shooting his daughter's laptop? The one praised by conservatives and common-sense parents everywhere? That video has nearly 33 MILLION views...now THAT is something worthy of the term 'mega-viral'.

This video is one of the best of its kind, and SHOULD be seen by every American. Of course; unless it is broadcast during the halftime of the Super Bowl; that isn't going to happen. But we sure as hell can make an honest effort to spread this video around to as many people as possible. The 'dead laptop' video shows that you can reach MILLIONS on YouTube. Can Americans push this video up to 33 million viewers? Can we keep this in front of American viewers until Election Day?

Yes, we can. :-)

Yeah, I think I’m waking up. Daydreaming of how conservatives can use the twitter mob concept to shake things up. Protest designed to throw them just a little off balance...give them what the Spartans called the Phobos, the feeling all is not right, that they should double-lock their doors and check under the beds.

That’s when the enemy begins spending more energy than you. That’s the little victory you take home each day when you know the enemy hopelessly outnumbers you and you must dig in for the long haul like a conservative viet cong with the same endurance and singlemindedness.

When a conservative protester is arrested and they ask him for i.d. he should answer “liberty”. And when the King has decided on how to swat the fly, make him overextend himself, as in judo, and make sure he always lands on the wrong side of public opinion...the zeitgeist is there for the taking, if enough sleepers have awakened.

Ideas?

Right now I’m investigating this chemical that replicates skunk smell, but hundreds of times more concentrated. A few drops will clear a building and make it unusable for weeks, unless you ptofessionally clean it top to bottom. I’m trying to find a place I can buy some. In bulk.
