The Republican Party- A Danger to the Republic With Rigged Elections

We say we are a free people because we vote. We dare to pass judgment on other Nations when dictators who stay in power for decades do so thru rigged elections. Indeed one of the characteristics of totalitarian and tyrannical and fascist governments is rigged elections. I remember how upset the Teaparty , the right and Fox News was about the “rigged” elections in Iran.  Rightly so.

Red Map is Republican endeavor to systemically win elections. This is from their own website ( )

On November 6, 2012, Barack Obama was reelected President of the United States by nearly a three-point margin, winning 332 electoral votes to Mitt Romney’s 206 while garnering nearly 3.5 million more votes.  Democrats also celebrated victories in 69 percent of U.S. Senate elections, winning 23 of 33 contests. Farther down-ballot, aggregated numbers show voters pulled the lever for Republicans only 49 percent of the time in congressional races, suggesting that 2012 could have been a repeat of 2008, when voters gave control of the White House and both chambers of Congress to Democrats

Did you catch that last sentence? Democrats won 51% of Congressional votes. Republicans only 49%. Yet Republicans held on to the House.  (Instead, Republicans enjoy a 33-seat margin in the U.S. House seated yesterday in the 113th Congress, having endured Democratic successes atop the ticket and over one million more votes cast for Democratic House candidates than Republicans”)

Now after flipping state legislatures, Republican state legislatures, very quietly, are preparing to use their Red Map strategy in order to rig the Presidential elections in 2016. (Rachel Maddow explains it here ) Before my conservative followers grunt in disgust, it should not surprise that she would pick this story up first and Fox has not covered it. Fox will not tell you what you don’t want to hear since they are corporate media for profit and simply feed red meat to a targeted audience.

Please see all the links at the bottom for updates on this huge, huge story.

Anyways, Republicans, and there is no easy way to say it, plan to rig presidential elections so democrats can never ever win. What happens in a country when the will of the people,  is ignored and the will of a select group is imposed? It’s tyranny.

Here we are with all those shouts of “freedom and liberty” coming from the righteous right who claim, CLAIM,  to be on the side of the constitution and a Republic, but pervert our elections with systemic rigging in a collage of voter suppression and gerrymandering and are now preparing to rig Presidential elections by gerrymandering the electoral college.

The system created by the Founders to elect our leaders by a majority will be tweaked and distorted by the the "freedom, liberty, constitution loving" Republicans, until what the Founders created is no more.

And where are the liberty, constitution loving Teapartiers? They are so busy fighting over their overblown perceived threat to the second amendment and Obama that they don’t know or they don't care. 

Do Republican voters and the freedom and liberty loving Teaparty want to win elections by winning electoral votes for the next 50 years even if they lose the popular vote or do they want to win fair and square?  The answer is NO. One of the reasons I left the party is because I know they don’t care how they win. They don’t care if students, minorities or the elderly who typically vote Democrat vote or not, if their vote is counted or not or if they vote at all. They don’t care whose rights are trampled on as long as they win. Sooner or later those rights will be theirs. They are just too stupid to know it.

Much like they supported indefinite detention for terrorists because their rights were our rights but they didn’t think so. Now we have Guantanamo and indefinite detention for everyone. I often wonder if the right will get their way with torture? Imagine torture coming to a booking center near you?

Republicans haven't won the popular vote in the past five elections. Rather then appease to the electorate they plan on stealing and cheating to get and stay in power and their base? their constitution freedom loving base? They don't give a rats ass. They will go along with it. A corrupt people will give us an even more corrupt government. 

Tyranny if it comes will come from the right wrapped in the flag, carrying a Bible and a gun, while every other right is destroyed.  It will come when your vote does not matter and you can’t unseat tyrants. It will come with rigged elections. Aren't we already under siege in the House of Representatives with a minority holding hostage the rest of the country, if not the world, over the debt ceiling, threatening to steal even more of our Social Security and Medicare to pay for wars? ( U.S. Government Looting Social Security To Wage Wars

LOL  Liberals REALLY need to be careful what they  wish for. If the religious, racist, extreme tyrannical right come to power by rigging elections over and over again they will  wish they had a shitload of automatic weapons to take down the Foxified brainwashed traitors who support them, give a rats ass about the constitution, the right to vote and freely elect one’s leaders.

Happy New Year

PS This new Teaparty often cries “Hitler” when speaking of liberals. Well Hitler was a racist, he opposed immigration, outlawed abortion and destroyed labor unions. Sound familiar? Does that sound “liberal” to you? And oh yes, he EXPANDED gun laws. The right should be careful with the media less they be brainwashed. Media does not have to be liberal to make a fool of you. Just look at Fox News and the rest of the right infotainment media complex (David Frum: GOP Has "Been Fleeced, Exploited, And Lied To By A Conservative Entertainment Complex" )

Note: There was a time when the Teaparty was all about fiscal responsibility and small government. This new  Teaparty is a collection of batshits that fear sharia law, President Blackenstein and want to impose their religious beliefs on the whole of the American people and there is a whole for profit or fame set of people feeding the frenzy. That's the Teaparty I am talking about. I miss the old Teaparty
