The 2014 Elections

Elections that occur during the midterm of a Presidential cycle usually result in the party of the President losing seats in both Houses of Congress. If you have been reading the so called experts, their predictions are for a major Republican win this time around. Not only will the R’s pick up seats in the House but most are predicting that the R’s will gain control of the Senate.

 

Currently there are 45 R’s, 53 D’s, and 2 I’s that caucus with the rats. That means that the R’s have to pick up 6 seats to gain control.

 

My political predictions have been horrendous. Using my heart instead of my head. I know I am no intelligence analyst but here goes anyway.

 

It is not going to happen. Even though enthusiasm among the rat LIV’s is at an all time low the R’s are doing their best to throw the this election. All the talk about immigration reform being the top priority is making voters would normally vote R take notice of the non opposition by the supposed opposition party.

 

If you are going to do the proggies work for them why bother voting for you? Then there is the usual cadre of RINO’s to deal with. DIABLO is a much better acronym for them. Democrat In All But Label Only. They will vote for cloture knowing that whatever proggie issue of the day will pass anyway, then vote no on the actual bill, so the can maintain their ACU rating.

 

Best case scenario? The R’s will not gain control of Senate. Truth be known, they don’t want control. If they had it and keep cooperating with the rats. they would anger their base even more. That might risk losing money on the campaign trail.

 

End game. R’s might pick up 2 seats. They might also lose 2 seats. SNAFU. Status Quo.

 

France is working on their 5th republic. How soon before we will be working on our 2nd?

 

Vote for TEA’s in the primary’s. Then vote or not vote you conscious in the elections. I will not be making the mistake of voting for Sen Mark Kirk with his dismal voting record again in 16. Write in is how I will go.

    1. GMB vote for me. I'll give you nothing and make you enjoy it.

      We keep rewarding our Congress critters for acting like bratty kids. What happens when you reward them? You just reinforce that bratty behavior.

      Jim Oberweiss is the Republican candidate going up against tricky rich dick durbin in the fall. Oberweiss had a 100% ACU in the Illinois State House last year. Needless to say the Illinois gope did all they could to first to try to get him not to run then threw a bunch of “electable” rinos after him in the primary.

      He won anyway.

      I will work my skinny butt off to get him elected. DIABLO Kirk, yawn, if I am still alive in 16, it will be a write in.

    My predictions for what they are worth (mainly beer!). GOP picks up a few seats, maybe the Senate, does zip for 2 years and the electorate chooses between President Clinton and President Bush. People are worried about the economy and the GOP is still talking Benghazi which was so important the US population elected Mitt Romney in 2012. I understand the immigration angle but the underlying problem is that the GOP’s biggest corporate backers also make big $$$ by making sure the labor pool is always being replenished.

    Winning GOP playbook for 2016-onward in no particular order

    1. A real defense of the most defenseless among us. A pro-life stance as the basis for what government is about, protecting those most vulnerable.

    2. Get rid of crony capitalism, stop passing laws favoring particular companies via tax breaks and regulations. End ethanol subsidies but at the same time make farmers more independent of a few big corporations.

    3. Stop being the nanny state. I don’t care what my neighbor puts into his body in the privacy of his own home. He can eat all the twinkies he wants, drink what he wants, smoke what he wants … It’s a big waste of taxpayers keeping twinkie-man in jail because someone doesn’t like people eating twinkies.

    4. Emphasize independence from big government, big banking, (big education?) etc. Mark N. talks about make-mine-build and then writes yet another 50 cent book about corruption in the Democratic party. Well, apparently nobody is interested in the latter, while the former is slowly becoming a big deal. Conservatives like Malkin are stealing the idea and a French economist Piketty- has explored some of the same shortcomings of our current economic system that Mark has been talking about for years.

    5. Trade schools instead of basket weaving at the university of WeWantYourMoney. Not, I repeat not community college which is WeWantYourMoney Lite. There are whole industries right now where people can take genuine risks, 3D printing, DIY manufacturing, a whole Maker culture which dates back to our heritage as farmers and pioneers.

      Baldork……… 🙂 good to see you.
      I actually agree with 99% of your list,
      I would like to add, moving away from our rapid speed to a police state, DISARM ALL agencies but the FBI, STOP selling military style weapons to local police forces.
      Close ALL unnecessary and duplicate agencies, let the state handle the education, environment, safety, close the IRS and go to a national sales tax where every one pays NO exceptions.
      and on and on. I know a pipe dream but one can dream cant we?

      Screw the GOP RINOS

      How the GOP establishment plans to defeat conservatives
      Thomas Lifson

      A long and revealing article in National Journal explains how the GOP establishment is focusing on its real enemy, tea partiers and other conservatives who have the temerity to offer primary voters and alternative to get-along-go-along candidates who will do the bidding of party elders and allow immigration amnesty, while not frightening big money donors from Wall Street.

        And When the Feds Lie To You?
        James Longstreet

        Benghazi misdirections for political purposes; Obamacare’s doctor and plan retention; Obamacare’s promised cost per family savings; Fast and Furious stonewalling; and the IRS political attacks. What do they all have in common? Lying. From the federal government to the people.

        But, per this article from Mr. Solomon Wisenberg,

        “Did you know that it is a crime to tell a lie to the federal government? Even if your lie is oral and not under oath? Even if you have received no warnings of any kind? Even if you are not trying to cheat the government out of money? Even if the government is not actually misled by your falsehood? Well it is. “

        “Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001 makes it a crime to: 1) knowingly and willfully; 2) make any materially false, fictitious or fraudulent statement or representation; 3) in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative or judicial branch of the United States. Your lie does not even have to be made directly to an employee of the national government as long as it is “within the jurisdiction” of the ever expanding federal bureaucracy”

        So the question must be asked: What happens when they lie to us? Apparently nothing. Bold-faced and repeated untruths are explained away as something unavoidable, misunderstood.

        What happens? Hmmmm, interesting question. Answer? Promise more free stuff that the ever shrinking pool of taxpayers will have to cover or borrow more money from the chicoms. Then our “leaders” can pay them back with more of our miltech.

        We lose no matter what.

        Remember the important thing here is, “acts of love” will get the gope more votes next time around.

        Yay!

      “Stop being the nanny state. I don’t care what my neighbor puts into his body in the privacy of his own home. He can eat all the twinkies he wants, drink what he wants, smoke what he wants”

      I do agree with this. It is time for the gub’mint to get out of peoples homes. The trouble is that a lot of people will give into baser instincts and mess up their life very bad. What responsibility do the rest of have to fork over our tax dollars to try and get this type of person back to a productive member of the society?

      Shouldn’t this policy go both ways?

    “The American public, at least at this point, seem intent on deliver a stinging rebuke to President Obama, his party, and liberalism itself. The left, knowing this, is going to become even more desperate, more ad hominem, and more deranged in their attacks.”
    from Peter Wehner at Commentary

    The last sentence is very true. I have not seen any evidence of the first, except in polls that have been unreliable in the past.

    Mr. Wehner either is ignorant of or disbelieving in what a good job the three stooges are doing at depressing the base of Republican Party.
