Comments on: Why the 2016 Republican nominee is likely to be chosen by the blue states http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/02/16/why-the-2016-republican-nominee-is-likely-to-be-chosen-by-the-blue-states/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: eh... http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/02/16/why-the-2016-republican-nominee-is-likely-to-be-chosen-by-the-blue-states/#comment-361049 Wed, 04 Mar 2015 05:44:40 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=38012#comment-361049 DO NOT use Jeb Bush as our “poster boy”, most of the Republican party base DESPISES that RINO… Same goes for Chris Christie. No way we are giving that fake conservative fool our party’s ticket.

Also, look at this poll, here is a poll showing Scott Walker closing in on Hillary Clinton. Before he wasn’t even close to her, couldn’t even touch a woman, who has no accomplishments, like a couple months ago, but now look at this, http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015  /mar/3/scott-walker-trails-hillary-clin ton-by-5-in-head-t/.

No GOP presidential nominee in ’16, whether conservative or moderate, is capable of securing 270 electoral votes.

I don’t care what Fox or BSNBC told you: both the Republicans AND the Democrats are controlled by wealthy special interests who can afford the millions of dollars required to buy representation in government. While some of these special interests primarily influence one party or the other, some lobbying groups have the politicians of BOTH major parties in their collective pocket. These include the Israel lobby, the “defense” manufacturing lobby, and anyone else who profits from endless wars abroad and the police state at home.

America is an oligarchy. The vast majority of the US population has ZERO representation in the federal government. You have NO say in what laws are passed or in choosing the future direction of the country. Your purpose is to simply pay taxes and slavishly obey whatever commands you are given by the oligarchs via their police/military enforcement class. You are permitted to choose who will represent the oligarchs every so often, and you are still allowed the privilege of griping about this System on the Internet (as I am doing); but you are not permitted to vote for anyone who will actually represent YOU and YOUR family. Neither are you permitted to vote for anyone who will protect the Bill of Rights against the growing police state. (Ron Paul was probably the one and only chance we’ll ever get.)

This is why Obama continued (or expanded upon) Bush’s policies. Had Romney won, he would have been just like Obama, barring a few wedge issues. And barring a mass awakening of America’s simpleminded, TV-addicted proles, those same policies will continue under the next Democrat or Republican in the White House, and regardless of which team controls Congress.

Too much FOX.

Red states have had credit downgrades, less investment, lower quality of life, and more poverty.

Pennsylvania under Corbett, Kansas, etc.

Check the facts.

Red states receive more federal aid, and blue states receive less.

They more than anyone should realize that the states with the biggest deficits and financial problems are blue states run by democratic majorities. It is going to take strong conservative principles to even begin to clean up the disasters left by the democratic leaderships and the Obama administration. There is no room for these so called moderate Republicans that are afraid to make waves and take on the status quo. It is time to clean house and set this county on a path that returns us to our founders principles and protect our nation against the lunacy of Islamic terrorism. Forget the mealy mouth Republicans and choose a real leader—a truly conservative one and not another Bush.

If Hillary runs she will win, because of this- the majority of losers who refuse to work hard and go to college and get a student loan like I did. (6 years of night school to get my business degree) Now they even whine about a 5% interest rate on a student loan! America, land of the growing deficit and run by the takers on the take.
