There Is NO Conspiracy Going On

Excerpt from Rachel Maddow on her show Wednesday after the election:

“”Ohio really did go to President Obama last night, he really did win. He really was born in Hawaii, and he really is, legitimately, president of the United States again. And The Bureau of Labor Statistics did not make up a fake unemployment rate last month. And the Congressional Research Service really can find no evidence that cutting taxes on rich people grows the economy. And the polls were not skewed to oversample Democrats. And Nate Silver was not making up fake projections about the election to make conservatives feel bad. Nate Silver was doing math.

And climate change is real. And rape really does cause pregnancy sometimes. And evolution is a thing! And Benghazi was an attack on us, it was not a scandal by us. And nobody is taking away anyone’s guns. And taxes have not gone up. And the deficit is dropping, actually. And Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction. And the moon landing was real. And FEMA is not building concentration camps. And UN election observers are not taking over Texas. And moderate reforms of the regulations on the insurance industry and the financial services industry in this country are not the same thing as communism.””

In other words…Republicans wake the f_ck up.  There is no Democratic conspiracy going on to turn the US into a communist or socialist state.  President Obama is NOT a closet Muslim trying to get rid of the US constitution.

The anti-Obama anti-Democratic Party rhetoric that Fox news, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and others have been making up and spewing the last four years is just insulting.  Insulting to blacks, Hispanics, other minorities, people with intelligence, women in general and those of us who live in a world of reality, good sense, and good will towards ALL men/women.


How Not to Elect a President

Once again the Republicans are out there stealing people’s votes in a presidential election. The electronic machines are coming up “McCain” when Obama is voted for.

Electronic voting machines can easily be hacked and made to falsify people’s votes.

It seems the Republicans will continue the ‘dirty tricks’ campaigning as usual this year. We are experiencing unprecedented ugly phone calls, misleading mail, misleading TV ads, outrageous comments.  The RNC is up to its usual propagandizing by inserting thousands of ugly rumors about the opposition into mainstream communications.  “He’s a Muslim”, “He was born in Haiti”, “He will fill the government with blacks and they’ll eat your babies”, “He’ll make all the white people bow to him”, “His tax policy means all small businesses will lay off 20% of workers”, “He’ll tax small business people so bad they’ll close”, “He’s a n—-r, and white people don’t want him as their leader”.  The amount of racist crap coming out of the RNC playbook is a disgrace, and those Republicans should be ashamed of the lies they are spewing…and, they really need to stop tampering with the American voters.

More than any other time in my memory of this country’s history, we are facing a sea-change that has the potential to plunge the whole world into darkness once again.  Take the time to read the issues and take care to vote and make the voice of reason sound out and prevail.
