Across our landscape there are very few pivotal landslide elections. When they happen they create a new dominant party for a long time…
I can only think of four… FDR’s first two terms and Ronald Reagan’s two terms. Both set in motion a new philosophy and new institutions to enforce the continuation of that policy long after their respective deaths…
(Clinton’s 2nd term would almost qualify but its effect was squandered on Monica Lewinsky… Doubt that? And you just told me you are not from the South, Great Plains, or the mountainous West.) ..
Here are maps of what we are talking about…..
The philosophy espoused by those of the heavily blue maps lasted from 1933 to 2001. A nice span of 68 years… The philosophy espoused by those in the heavily red maps, overlaps a little, but most would say it is the primary driver of most policy today, which give it a lifetime stretching from 1981 to today… A lifespan so far of 33 years…
Today, we are consistently divided…..
Which kind of explains our current Federal government, now doesn’t it? Actually it has never been more clear…
For your life to get better, we have to stop supporting equal government… Where both sides are balanced and nothing ever, gets down… Currently in the House, there are radical new changes that will forever change America as we know it… It can’t get passed the Senate …
Currently in the Senate, there are radical new changes that will forever change America as we know it… It can’t get passed the House….
2014 will be a pivotal year for several reasons.
A) There is no cap on how much can be spent.
B) Voter turnout is consistently low. So advertising will be the worst ever, meaning every vote that switches carries more weight. Every voter who gives up in disgust, and does not vote, gives up that much more of a percentage on deciding the total vote…
C) Wealth will outspend the poor this year. Wealth has the money; 80% of the population is unable to write a check to either political party….
D) Both parties’ policies are streamlined into clear agendas. One party (with money) is for policies that help the 1% do better and pay for them by hurting the 99%… The other party is for policies that help the 99% do better, and pays for them by hurting the top 1%….
E) Because of the politics of doing business, all those media outlets in charge of telling you the news and sometimes the truth, cannot in good conscious, tell you the truth anymore… They simply can’t risk getting pushed off the buying spree…..
You have to choose who to help: the rich or poor, and you have to vote, no matter what obstacles they throw up in your way…. you must remember that those obstacles are there for a reason, and will remain there until we get either an all blue, or all red America showing up in Wikipedia on election day.. Because those obstacles are there solely to protect the losing parties advantage in an effort to keep America from going all blue…
This raising of the cap also means, that if you are a CEO planning an ad campaign that will be kicking off from late August through a holiday December… your ads won’t register with audiences until the day after election… Save your advertising money. There is no way you can compete for airtime against someone who will pay any price to get his ad on the air… Save your money…
My personal experience is that over the past two elections, the non political people I know mentally tuned out of ads… Ads no longer work. What does work is the personal connection of talking to real people… There were almost no campaign ad buys in 1932 or 1936. And there were campaign limits on money spent in both 1980 and 1984…. Primarily both those sweeping groups of elections were decided upon word of mouth….
I used to get mad at conservative talk shows, until I realized there were only the same 5 people calling in… Out of 3 million people… Were they shills? I don’t know but their voice prints were consistent. Occasionally someone thinking the talk show was real would call in, but it was rare…
Fight apathy. This is where you come in… If you read this, you probably will look at the ads too… Your job is to interpret the ads to all you know as nothing more than billionaires blowing smoke out of their orifices like they are lavishing in a Bangkok bordello. These ads don’t correspond to real life. People don’t hate their neighbor because they have an Obama or Romney sticker on their care… 99% of us say… “Oh, whatever” .. “Who gives a shit? Hey! Can you tell me where you bought your truck?”
The point is that all those red states are not all red deep inside… There are a lot of blues there too, at least 30% in the most red, and often in populous states, up to 49%…. Human beings living in those states have a lot more clout than some clever ad that simply makes up stuff around a table and then pretends it it true, using actors, and trying to crush the airwaves with massive volume before the fact-checkers get the messages out calling it all bunk..
It is We, The People versus They The Billionaires. It is a game of Monopoly in its final rounds and we only own a monopoly on the yellow squares on the back side… Our only hope left is that we get to shuffle the stack the Chance cards every time we vote… And if you don’t want to go through this all over again in two more years, with more unlimited funding in 2016, you need to make sure that despite $4 billion being spent this mid term election, it does zero good to the Koch’s or anyone else…
If we can get a Blue House, we will have a blue Senate, and we can move forward with a blue president…. it’s almost worth dying for.
It’s all about word of mouth… And be nice… Republicans aren’t bad people anymore than Democrats, and when you talk to them realize you probably look as weird to them, a they do looking right back at you. And trust me, if you read the news and blogs you would already know that the majority of Republicans are looking for something new. They just don’t know what. And should you need a shot of hope? Cast your eye on these electoral maps which are of the elections just before the ones above when the massive tidal waves made their landfall…..
Things can change quickly when everyone individually just gets fed up that things are not going their way… At 99%, the numbers are in our favor…
But it is all about you. Now get out and start talking. Tell the truth… Be nice.
I wonder if we could get 2 million to show up for a march in DC against billionaires buying out our elections? We could, but it would take some work, but that would be a very effective message against an unmatched $4 billion being spent to prevent democracy.
Our message would be real, with real people. Their’s as fake as Mr. Ed….. (that is who David Koch looks like I think; compare the chins)…

Delaware Liberal has running commentary here……
it is probably time to discuss this.
For years we have quietly known and accepted the negatives of having an NSA. Things like we need it for our protection, or it makes things safer, tended to overide our fears that they know too much already, and I can’t do anything in private anymore…
We accepted that as progress.
However, when you have an organization so secret, that members of Congress are shocked to find out what it is doing, that no one knows who is authorizing who gets spied upon and what, that when brought before the courts for overstepping the Constitution, it can’t be prosecuted because a) it operates under “secret” laws, b) with “secret operations”, c) authorized by “secret courts” …. it is time to shut the entire operation down.
Why do we have the NSA when we have the CIA and the FBI. The FBI covers domestic spying. The CIA covers international spying. So, unless we find out that there are aliens and the NSA is really running the world while we think otherwise, then it probably ought to go.
I find it interesting that those on the far right, and those on the far left are the most outraged by this disclosure. We’ve been stating that news on this blog after the story was broken back in 2007-8 and not one press person cared. I supposed the AP Story opened their eyes this time. Struggling to put a finger on why, I came up with the theory primarily by looking at Congress, that it is the libertarians on left and right who are against, and the conformist, primarily in the center who are acceptive. So this gives us a split where the bottom third and the top third of the political body are opposed to the middle third… If you look at Congress that is exactly how it splits up. Moderates are pro domestic spying, the libertarians are not.
Probably similar is the theory that those beholden to corporate interests are pro-spying, after all, that is normal in the corporate environment; interoffice spying is not limited by any judicial system because it is deemed to be private. Those aghast, tend to fight corporate intrusion from their original political perspective, either left of right.
What the NSA does, watch everything to discern what is happening to increase its chances of survival, is not new. Intelligence has been the secret success of many an empire. Knowing what someone will do before they do it, is pretty comfortable in a world where in a day, we probably pass within 10 feet of 10,000 people (that includes inside our vehicles).
That is what all governments with the capacity, do. The biggest argument against it, is that it is un-American. Sure we have the “ability” to do it, but do we have the restraint, not to…
America has always been ruled by restraint. When Washington was entreated to be the King, he restrained and said no. When the heads of Europe all bet that Washington would invent a method to stay in power, he restrained, and government turned over peacefully. When the US was left in charge of a broken Europe, it put it back together and went home. The only country to invade another and give it back willingly to its original owners.
We had a scare in Boston a while back. Did the NSA protect us then? It’s a secret, no one knows. In Newtown 26 bodies littered the floor of an elementary school. Did the NSA protect us then? When a gunman burst into Aurora firing into the audience, did the NSA protect us then? When Gabby Gifford took a bullet, where was the NSA? Did the NSA protect us then?
That is the point. We are always in danger. But our personal lives are more at risk if our private information should fall into a competitors hands, than being victim of a terrorist. In Boston just 2 people died. In Newton 26. But each and every one of us, is at risk that selective information from ones past, can be used in secret to smear each and every one of us, should it fall into the wrong hands.
What would happen if we shut the entire agency known as the NSA down? A big nothing. They overstepped. It is not knee-jerking anger to respond “Shut them down right now!” It it calm, cool reasoning tipping the balance, that points out simply that is the right way to go.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
What the NRA is proposing: that every man become his own enforcer of his own view of “constitutionality” by having his own masses of whatever firepower he so chooses, … is the exact opposite of being well regulated. As we see with every new report of shootings, it promotes anarchy.
If we assume that a civilian population is required to keep arms to protect itself from tyranny, then by the words of the Constitution itself,… we have to regulate those very arms…
We can regulate them by banning assault rifles. We can regulate them by banning high capacity clips. We can regulate them by registering every firearm to a single owner, and holding that single owner accountable for whatever accident befalls that gun. We can regulate them by requiring insurance, and if there are those who refuse to abide by the constitutional regulations, we can incarcerate them and be done with them.
The Constitution allows for firearms, only IF THEY ARE WELL REGULATED….
So, in order to validate the Constitution, let’s regulate all firearms….. Failure to do so, is a violation of the Founding Father’s own principles, and is unconstitutional….
It says so right there in the Second Amendment. Care to read it?
Today in order to capitalize upon the fact that the fourth quarter economy sank (even though it was because of the downward pressure due to the threat of sequestration forced upon Congress by the Tea Party), they wheeled out Arthur
Laughter Laffer to make a dire predictions….
He is on their short list of who-to-call-when-we(FOX News)-NEED-a-dire-prediction…..
Because….. He is well known for making “dire predictions”..
“Economist Arthur Laffer told his clients on July 26, 1982, that (Ronald Reagan’s) Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act, which raised taxes by about one percent of GDP, “will stifle economic recovery,” “retard economic growth,” and undercut “the economy’s ability to enter into a period of expansion.” On August 20, 1982, he told his clients that TEFRA, Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act, “will tend to lengthen and deepen the recession.”
Instead, ….. No one could have been more wrong…
“Looking at real gross domestic product, it grew 4.5 percent in 1983 and 7.2 percent in 1984 – an exceptionally strong performance. The stock market had one of its best years ever in 1983 – both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 Index rose 35 percent. There was no increase in the rate of inflation, which was exactly the same in 1983 and 1984 as it was in 1982. The unemployment rate fell from 10.6 percent in December 1982 to 8.1 percent by December 1983 and 7.1 percent in December 1984.”
On August 20, 1993, Laffer told his clients, “Clinton’s tax bill will do about as much damage to the U.S. economy as could feasibly be done in the current political environment.” He said that interest rates would rise and the stock market would fall.
Once again, it would be hard to find a forecast that was more completely wrong….
“The unemployment rate fell from 7.1 percent in January 1993 to 5.4 percent by December 1994. Real GDP growth rose from 2.9 percent in 1993 to 4.1 percent in 1994. Stock prices rose and interest rates fell. More importantly, the 1993 tax increase and accompanying spending controls, which were opposed by every Republican in Congress, laid the foundation for the phenomenal growth of the late 1990s that actually produced budget surpluses before Republican tax cuts in the 2000s dissipated them.”
And now! Today,… well, there he goes again….
“You have the whole output of the economy shrinking. Not just expanding more slowly, it`s absolutely shrinking,” (lol, see by how little, below)… Laffer told Fox News’ Eric Bolling…
“That’s catastrophic,” the former adviser to President Ronald Reagan added. (Did anyone else catch the stupendous irony of that? Oh, Wow. You can’t make stuff like that up).
“You can explain some of that by sequestration, and defense spending was down lot and all that. But you still have a rotten economy. And it’s still too bad. We know how to fix it, by the way, a low rate flat tax, spending restraint, sound money, free trade.” (See George Bush’s Economic Record.) Laffer was responding to reports Wednesday that the U.S. economy contracted 0.1 percent in the last quarter of 2012…
Yes. Laffer was responding to reports Wednesday that the U.S. economy contracted 0.1 percent in the last quarter of 2012. Quote: “You have the whole output of the economy shrinking. Not just expanding more slowly, it`s absolutely shrinking,”
Recalling his years as one of Reagan’s top economic advisers, Laffer said Reagan actually cut the highest tax rates (From 70%-50%; they are 35% now) He said “we made a mistake” by phasing in the cuts, which he said caused the 1981-82 recession. But he said the economy took off in 1983* when the cuts (and 1%GDP tax increase) went into full effect. *
“This place just went like a rocket ship,” he said. “I think we had 7.5 percent growth in 1983 and 5.5 growth in 1984, just this boom that lasted for years and years.”* (*lol)

With Sandy’s approach, words of warning went out to all campaigns.. Get your big signs down for the storm. Feel free to put them up after the storm blows by. Everyone got an email.
Democrats were in full force, and in New Castle County, not one Democratic sign was left standing… By noon all were stored for safe keeping…
There were no libertarian candidate’s signs. As dedicated citizens, the libertarian team scoured the county and by noon, their signs were all stored for save keeping.
The one Jill Stein sign I’d seen, was gone. Secured by the Green Party….
In fact the only signs up as darkness approached, were those of Alex Pires, which is understandable, it being a one man operation, and those of the Republican line up, which apparently has even fewer supporters.
It looks like Kansas, at intersections now, with only Republicans contesting a one man operation….
If the Green Party and Libertarian party can mobilize faster than the Republican, it is time to stop calling the Republican Party a “major” party.
Even the Wizard of Oz had more going for it than today’s Delaware Republicans, who with their daily bumbles are rapidly creating a new definition of the English word pathetic.
It’s time I put this in perspective.
Here are the news feeds.
Coupled with the opinion polls, what is happening is very obvious.
Americans support Democratic middle class values, they abhor the wing nuts of the Republican Party.
The opinion polls tell it all. While Romney was campaigning to see who could be the most conservative, he did very poorly against the Democrats when polled. Americans far preferred “the imploders” at first, people more mainstream in appearance, like Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorium, .. that is until they became familiar with their values…
It is not coincidental, that the last two Republican presidential candidates were the ones with the most LIBERAL credentials. Because America accepts those credentials. What America rejects, is slash and burn Conservative policies, that require no personal freedoms to individual Americans, whether it is economic, vaginal, religious, or political. Everyone is expected to conform to a very narrow norm.
So we now have a Republican who did exactly what he said early during the primaries. He shook the Etch A Sketch and is now running as the Liberal Governor of Massachusetts.
“I will not give a tax break to the top 20%.
There will be no tax cut on the top one percent.
I will not get rid of Roe versus Wade. Abortion is here to stay.
I will not put religion into government. Government is Government. Religion is Religion.
I will not nuke Iran.
I will not cut one penny from government spending.
I will support the rapid growth of wind farms and solar energy.
I will not cut 716 million from Medicare, even if it IS in my economic plan.
I never proposed $5 Trillion in Tax cuts.
I will not cut spending. I will raise it by 2 Trillion Dollars.
Government is too small. I will grow government to make it better.
I will not stop women from getting abortions.
I will not stop the removal of God from government….
Homosexual marriage is not really that bad after all, as long as they LOVE each other and it’s not just sex.”
These were all in the debate. It was a different Romney speaking. Why? Because as a conservative he was losing. As a conservative he was out of touch with America. As a conservative HE WAS IN THE MINORITY WITH MINORITY VALUES.
As Conservatives long expected, Romney is a liberal. They know it. Really? How does anyone expect a Mormon to support Pat Robertson and the 700 Club? You do it out of expediency; not a genuine shared system of belief….
But the point of this is not about Romney. It is about Conservatism. Conservatism fails, and simply for that reason alone, it is not upheld by a majority of Americans.
Which means, to win, one has to be a Liberal Republican… Just look at the polls. As soon as the Liberal Romney comes out of the closet, the polls get real tight….
But, as we saw with Bush W. You may run as a Liberal, but when you get in, it’s the Conservatives who take over. Two wars, a pharmacy company bailout, and regular government operation, all which were financed by our grand children’s future payroll deductions. They get to make less money so today’s Republicans can take it all.
In other words, to be a Republican President, you have to “trick” yourself into that position.
So, America, I know it sounds nice now, but over and over and over you have said, no that is not what we want.
What we do want, is someone who will do what we want, when they get into running America. let’s take the last president for example. Obama got us out of a recession in record time. One that was far worse than the Great Depression to some extents. Obama saved the American Automobile Industry. To do so he had to drive hard bargains against all parties . Obama killed Osama Bin Laden. America got what it paid for when they voted Obama.
Why change horses in the middle of the stream, especially when the other horse is heading back in the other direction? The wrong direction according to almost all Americans?
Romney knows that backwards direction leads to ruin. That is why the new Romney pushed the campaign message- minder outside the inner circle, and why Romney is now currently running for women’s rights. for the secularization of government, for the complete protection of the environment, for the elimination of greenhouse gases, and for the increase of taxes on the wealthy. That is why Romney is doing better in the polls….
Conservatism is truly dead.
When he worked for Christine O’Donnell, there were Mike Castle’s goons hiding in her bushes… When she won, they thought that was why. because she was persecuted. It was then Chris Coons goons who spent their nights hiding in Christine O’Donnell’s bushes…. When she runs in 2014, she has said that she will have her bushes sprayed prior with goon repellent….
Now, her goon is running against the world’s best person… That goon is Evan Quittheshit. You may have heard him on WDEL phoning into Rick Jensen.
This is what he said. Bryan Townsend is a Manchurian candidate, who was kidnapped, sent off to China, spent time in a gulag(Soviet?), where he was psychologically brainwashed, reprogrammed, and sent back as an global agent of Agenda 21, or was it Spectra, or was it KAOS… It was one of those global organizations that has to have secret agents competent and daring, fighting against it, to thereby keep it secret and off the pages of media, and from ever becoming a household word.
Never heard of Agenda 21, or Spectra, or KAOS? That is because those secret agents are doing their job correctly. Max Smart contained KAOS. James Bond shut down Spectra, and Evan Quittheshit, is on top of Agenda 21.
Agenda 21 wants to take over your house, and instill its agents to set up ham radios and communicate with beings from beyond. Agenda 21, will come into your house, kill you and your spouse, then take your kids to camp and use psychedelic drugs to brainwash them into becoming robots who will kill on demand. Agenda 21 will kill your dog, send it overseas to be put in pet food to be sent back to the US and be unknowingly fed to your replacement dog. They have giant computers to make sure that can shows up at your house.
Only one man can stop them from taking over District 11, Evan Quittheshit….. Our lives lie in his hands. For he has stated thus: only if elected will he hide in our bushes, and keep us all safe.
District 11 is the most powerful place in the world. That is why Agenda 21 sent Bryan Townsend here…..
WE ARE IN DEEP DANGER. Vote Evan Quittheshit and save the world.
