Choices, Choices

Is there a difference between the two major political parties?
Where to start.

All major decaying cities are, and have been, governed by democrat politicians, often proven corrupt (see Kwamie Kilpatrick).

The LBJ (democrat president) Great Society has caused the breakup of the black family and ultimately black social fabric resulting in multiple sperm donor mothers with fatherless broods of children.

The Democrat Party full throttle supports Planned Parenthood in an attempt to kill many of these children before they are born.

Under the current Democrat president, the economy sputters along, social spending (welfare) masking a second Great Depression with an unemployment rate that (when unadjusted by liars) equals the 25% of the 1930's,

The same 1930's, whose depression was prolonged by another socialist democrat president, FDR, who if not for the victory in WWII, would be remembered as an abject failure.

There's a reason why presidential terms were limited after his reign.

One of the most remarkable turnarounds of the American Economy was under the leadership of a former actor turned Republican leader named Ronald Reagan, who caused the Russian threat to freedom to collapse.

The current democratic president, Barack Hussein Obama, (whose birth name was Sotero), supports Muslim Brotherhood dictatorships hostile to our country , yet vilifies or distances us from traditional allies, has just signed an agreement with Iran, a nation hostile to America and responsible for the death of many of our citizens.

This deal will allow them to police themselves in the hope that they will not allow themselves to get the nuclear weapons they have been seeking for decades.

And his administration is heralding this a diplomatic victory, while hiding the details of the agreement from the citizenry.

The foremost Democratic Party candidate for the presidency has engaged in documented fraud and cover-up of what appear to be a criminal lack of judgment concerning national security.
And the runner up behind her is an admitted socialist.

The foremost contender for the Republican Party candidacy is a blowhard billionaire businessman known for his transparency and inability to hide a thought about anything.
The runner up is a brilliant brain surgeon who rose out of poverty in a hellhole governed by democrats.

So.  If you had to choose a party to support in the upcoming election, which do you think it might be.
It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure that out.


  1. One of the most remarkable turnarounds of the American Economy was under the leadership of a former actor turned Republican leader named Ronald Reagan
    An utter pant load.
    The recovery was initiated by Jimmy Carter appointing Volker to chair the Fed.

    All Reagan managed to do was run up a huge deficit (though yu folks opposed that sort of thing) and sign off on the largest middle class tax increase in history.

    In short Ed, as in many other of your points you simply parrot the rabies media and call that insight.

    1. So what's the weather like in your alternate universe? :)

  2. The current democratic president, Barack Hussein Obama, (whose birth name was Sotero), supports Muslim Brotherhood dictatorships hostile to our country

    Egypt? We were behind wiping out the MB government and having our front man el-Sisi jail them.

    Can you support your ridiculous statement.
    This rapid repetition of falsehoods sound like something out of Rules for Radicals but the radical far right wouldn't use those, would it?

    Of course you do.

    1. You got me. Don't tell anyone, OK?
      I did mean Egypt.
      And Syria. And Iran.

    2. Syria -- Alewite. And we hardly give them support.
      Iran -- Shia.

      Now let's point out that the Brotherhood is Sunni and directly opposed to both Alewites and Shias.

      Stepped in that one, Ed.
      This MB obsession present on the fringe right is clearly delusional.
      You should really let go of this one.

    3. OK, and I thought of it a little bit ago, but didn't think you'd be back to point it out (about Syria and Brotherhood. Heck, his dad wasted a city for being Brotherhood 40 yrs ago), so let's just say Muslim.

      So many other salient points in the post, like a wolf circling the flock, you pick off the weak outliers, ignoring the rest.

    4. Well, I didn't want to point out that the main reason we didn't come out of the depression sooner under FDR was his attempt to balance the budget which stalled the stimulus.

      Would have been better to stick with Keynesian theory. The country which emerged from the depression quickest without militarizing was Sweden.

      But since you believe it wasn't Volcker's monetary policy which stopped stagflation it's difficult to discuss economics when the gap is so wide.
      But back to your statement that fDR lengthened the depression, only when he tried classical economics.

    5. I'm not denying Volcker's contribution, only Carter's leadership and ability.
      He was lost and indecisive.
      And uninspiring.

  3. "yet vilifies or distances us from traditional allies ..."
    Why don't you guys ever come out and just say Israel?

    Although I can't see what good that alliance brings us.

    1. Because I also meant England.
      Poland and Ukraine don't count, not so traditional, but allies.

  4. If you had to choose a party to support in the upcoming election, which do you think it might be.

    The Libertarian Party. My vote will count more towards automatic ballot access in Virginia, than it will towards anyone in the national election. Plus, the added bonus of voting for my core beliefs, instead of choosing between two Statists.

    1. OK. I'm sure Hillary will send you a personal thank you.

    2. If my vote swings the election, I'll be sure and ask her for one.

    3. It begs the question, then, why vote at all?
      I am not unsympathetic to your view, but the thought of pieroting an election is anathema to me.
      Is Cruz a statist?

    4. I already stated my reason; I want to get automatic ballot access for the LP in the next electoral cycle. The current duopoly is only counting our downward decent towards being a failed state. Above, you list cogent reasons not to support the Democratic Party, but are mum on the failings of the GOP.

      And yes, Cruz is as Statist as the rest of the pack. He would abet the continued growth and scope of government.

    5. I hate not being able to edit......"The current duopoly is only continuing....."

    6. Sorry, I wasn't clear on what you meant originally by automatic ballot access. Got it.
      "but are mum on the failings of the GOP."
      That's what I keep Ducky around for.

  5. Here are some quotes from the "brilliant" Ben Carson.
    You seem t think he's qualified to govern.

    “So if there were a container of contaminated urine, and somehow it managed to find its way to someplace a lot of damage could be done. Someone comes up to a lab worker. He knows he’s got the urine. ‘How would you like to have a million dollars?’ … Such things have been known to happen.”
    ~Ben Carson, fearmongering over Ebola

    “I think most people when they finish that course, they’d be ready to go sign up for ISIS.”
    ~Ben Carson, on the AP History curriculum

    “Anyone caught involved in voter fraud should be immediately deported and have his citizenship revoked.”
    Ben Carson displaying a poor grasp of the law.

    “I mean, [America is] very much like Nazi Germany. And I know you’re not supposed to say ‘Nazi Germany,’ but I don’t care about political correctness. You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population. We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe.”
    The man is clearly delusional

    1. Or you just disagree with what he says.
      You once again assume he's my choice.
      I don't know the Ebola context.
      The AP quote is an attempt at humor.
      Voter fraud quote is a preference opinion not a legal one.
      The Nazi quote rings true. PC police forbid free speech. I made an innocent comment at work and am now scheduled for re-education.
      Delusional surgeons of his caliber are rare.

    2. On Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson ratcheted up his border rhetoric by advocating military drone strikes on American soil to combat illegal immigration. Speaking near the U.S.-Mexico border, Carson told reporters:

      You look at some of these caves and things out there one drone strike, boom, and they’re gone!

      He continued by stating:

      I’m suggesting we do what we need to do to secure the border, whatever that is.

      There's a candidate we can get behind.

    3. Must be going for trump supporters.
