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 http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26315908/#50502443 ) 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.
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.
Happy New Year
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
