Republican Voters Stay Home
Written by JB Williams
If I could get a dollar for every time we are going to hear the word
“mandate” in the next 72 hours, I could get out of Dodge and retire
to a Caribbean island in style, where I
wouldn’t have to endure this…
Speaker Elect Pelosi and Senate Leader Elect Reid are two of the most
anti-American socialist members of congress - now in control of congress. They
can thank Republican voters for their new found power, but they won’t. They
will jam it up their bumm instead…
Five of nine registered voters are registered Republican, making it a
numerical impossibility for socialist Democrats to win power in this country
without the help of Republican voters. They had been threatening to stay home
for months leading up to the 2006 mid-term election. It was not an idle threat!
According to early numbers, the nation-wide voter turnout was only 40% of
registered voters. This morning, we know which 40%. Iraqi’s did better
braving a gauntlet of gunfire to hoof it to the polls… Republican
must be ashamed!
As my good friend and favorite conservative Paul Weyrich points out,
“Some at the grassroots level have argued that we
should send the Republicans a message of disapproval by voting for Democrats.
Interesting. That would be like a mother who has an unruly child spanking
herself to improve the child.” (It turns out - all they had to
do was stay home and do nothing.)
Finally, Republican voters have adopted the emotion driven logic of the
left and shot themselves in the foot (or maybe the head), just as Democrats did
in the 90’s. They removed themselves from power in a fit of rage against
a Republican congress that was not conservative enough and replaced them with
socialist Democrats that are not conservative at all, or even American.
Brilliant! This move qualifies them as “enlightened”… just
like their leftist counterparts. Though I would call it “mentally touched”…
There was no getting around the overwhelming anti-incumbency sentiment
coming into this mid-term election. Change of direction is what the people have
called for and change they will get.
They didn’t just elect the first female Speaker of the House -
they elected the first Socialist anti-America Speaker of the House and when
they see who sits at the helm of every key committee’s in Washington a
few days from now, they will see that they elected an entire Socialist regime
in Washington DC, though it will take a few months to calculate the cost of
such a move.
They voted against the war on terror, specifically, our efforts in the
central front in the war on terror in Iraq.
But they didn’t vote for any new policy in Iraq,
because Democrats never offered one, other than their call to cut-n-run from Iraq.
If Democrats keep their word to their core constituency, they will make
official their claim that Iraq
is just another Vietnam
by once again bringing our troops home in defeat and leaving Iraq
in a vacuum of real death and destruction.
In the days leading up to the election, terror networks around the
world called upon American voters to vote for Democrats and the American people
have now answered that call. Terror leaders’ choice for American
leadership just won control of congress and the terrorists’ tactics have
been fully vindicated. But Democrats didn’t stop there. A short five
years after Muslim terrorists brutally attacked America, killing thousands of
innocent civilians and wrecking U.S. economic stability, they elected the
nations first Muslim to congress!
To no shock or awe, newly elected Muslim House Representative Keith
Ellison of Minnesota,
called for an immediate troop pull-out and retreat from the war on terror in Iraq.
Is this what Republicans had in mind when they planned to teach Republican
politicians a lesson?
It is exactly what Democrats have had in mind ever since the day they
voted to authorize military action in Iraq.
What about the Republicans who just handed national power over to Democrats? Is
this what they had in mind?
Whether Republican voters intended to elect socialist Democrats who are
eager to retreat from the war on terror or not - that’s what they have done.
They gave two primary reasons for doing it… political corruption in Washington
These were the two socialist lies that stuck, both with idiot liberal
voters who don’t know any better, and with many Republican voters who once
did know better, but who let their emotions, not their knowledge, drive their
The problem is – both reasons were outright
Democrats voted to support military action in Iraq
and immediately thereafter began undermining that effort with great success. They
then ran in 2006 on “not staying the course in Iraq”,
without ever having to define exactly what new course they had planned. The few
willing to identify a plan at all, called for retreat and defeat (code named
redeploy) in Iraq.
The balance of Democrats simply refused to answer the question, repeating the
campaign mantra of “changing course” over and over, without ever
identifying “how” they would change course.
As for the corruption in Washington
DC, Republican leaders allowed themselves
to be seduced into the same Washington
power-games that Democrats perfected decades ago, becoming just as corrupt as
Democrats and thereby giving Republican voters nothing to feel good about
It isn’t a lie to say that Washington Republicans have become corrupt.
The lie is to suggest that Democrats had not beaten them at this game for years
or to imply that Washington Democrats are not the experts of political
corruption. The notion that Democrats will in any way improve this situation,
reduce political corruption in Washington,
is laughable. But few thought about that at election time.
Republican voters angered by lack-luster border security under
Republican leadership will not like the Democrats they have just elected at
all, once they figure out that there is no such thing as an “illegal
immigrant” in the mind of today’s Democrats. What we think of as
“illegal aliens”, Democrats think of as future federal aid
recipients and therefore, solid Democrat constituents.
As much as I’d like to blame Democrats for this disastrous shift
of political power to the extreme left, I can’t. It would not have been
possible without the help of Republican voters who are now officially, just as
stupid as the average Democrat voter.
The process of dumbing America
down to a level unable to govern itself is complete. The nanny state is here to
stay until it is one day forced to file bankruptcy. The leftist propaganda
promoted by the press and college campuses has finally succeeded in replacing
American principles with socialist drivel and the average American, now to
include many Republicans, is none the wiser.
Hurray for the great Democratic victory! The Communist Party USA, the Socialist Party USA and terror regimes all over
the world, celebrate their great victory today. But don’t expect them to
show any favor to those who put them all in power. They hate Republicans,
conservatives and all traditional American values more than ever.
The American “silent majority” was silent one last time.
Now they must remain silent forever. They have given up their right to
I hope that Republican leaders too weak to lead while they had the
chance, at least took notes from their Democrat friends in the new majority
Party across the aisle looking to run them over beginning today. Since they
couldn’t lead, they have to be perpetual spoilers to the New Leftist
Bush better sharpen up his Veto! It’s the only line of defense
left to preserve American ideals, before taking up arms… That day is now
