Christian Herbie Tyranny is off his meds again. Hes prone to spouting off his crazy-cat-lady pronouncements on the future of the country, then going entirely silent when asked for anything rational people base their predictions on, like evidence. Hes got his prophecies directly from his bearded imaginary friend in the sky! Or possibly Christine ODonnell used her Satanist connections, hard to be sure.

ODonnell is the mainstream candidate with mainstream values.To you, anyone is mainstream if he has an R by his name, and anyone is extreme if he has a D by his name. Out of one side of your mouth, you vilify those who arent extremely right-wing and push for Tea Party challengers, but out of the other side, you line up right behind the GOP party line and take pains to paint even the most moderate Republican as a principled leader and the most extreme as an everyday Joe. Get a grip.

keep in mind that voter anger is currently at a relative low (relative to the unfolding trend will bring). When economy watchers and financial media realize that the market has ended its bear market rally and is resuming another move down (double dip) the social mood will only become more opposed to the government apologists of the left (and the RINOs). the government bubble will certainly pop, despite the government apologists insistence that we continue to throw money at the problem. voters will not continue to support such wasteful spending and stimulus as they unfortunately have up to this point. I cant explain all I have learned about social and financial forecasting in a short post, but the point is that support for government programs will decrease even further as voters experience what is coming. the past year-and-a-half has only been a small foretaste of the shift to the right that America will experience in the decade(s) to come. Conservatives are on the ascendancy, beyond just 2010 and even beyond just 2012. Just like leftists in the 1960s couldnt believe that a conservative like Reagan would be president and Republicans would take back the senate and have a massive base of support from evangelicals, leftists today are completely oblivious to what is coming. If you dont see it yet...

How anyone could support the bearded Marxist is incomprehensible. Coons is the extremist nutjob. ODonnell is the mainstream candidate with mainstream values.

Hah. Poor ODonnell. She is a bridge too far.

FreeAmericanPatriot-1. If you think ODonnell is going to win, please seek help.2. If the Democratic party really were a bunch of socialists, why did they pass free-market based healthcare reform that was incredibly similar to the GOPs alternative to Clintons Health Security Act? Also, you realize that Social Security keeps 20 million elderly Americans out of poverty right? Are you advocating for poor old people?3. Obama has a birth certificate from the state of Hawaii and there was a mention of it in the newspaper there when he was born. That would be quite a conspiracy to go to all that trouble 49 years before his election... Again, seek help.4. What do you think the homosexual agenda is? Obtaining rights guaranteed to them in the Constitution? And way to be racist against the immigrants that are going to help fuel our economy as we move forward in the 21st century. If you had read the Constitution, by the way, you would know that Jesus and the Bible were never meant to be in the public square. A little thing called the First Amendment. Its not that long. Take a gander. On the note of the Constitution, welfare and unemployment insurance are not unconstitutional. We have a judiciary system that decides these things and, well, they decided that they are constitutional. Unemployment insurance is also the best form of economic stimulus because those people have to spend the money to live day to day and consumption is 70% of the US economy.

Christian Liberty-1. ODonnell is not mainstream and apparently cant even keep up with her finances or not lie about where she graduated from college.2. If you look throughout history, the American political system has had spurts of these kinds of movements on both the left and the right. It is a byproduct of the two party system that some peoples views on the extremes get left out and occasionally they get mad. 3. What do you mean by the government bubble will certainly pop. Does that mean we will default on our debt? Interest rates on US treasuries are ridiculously low so there isnt (or shouldnt be) any worry about that. 4. Fun fact: Without TARP, the stimulus and the Fed keeping interest rates near 0%, the US would have lost 8.5 million more jobs. So maybe you just dont like saving jobs?4. I would love to hear you theory on why we are going to have another double dip. Im sure there will be no empirical evidence in it.FreeAmericanPatriot-1.

With an acronym like FAP I have to assume that FreeAmericanPatriot is mocking crazy right-wing obsessions, and its really sad that just repeating them without comment suffices as a form of parody (much like when Tina Fey simply repeated Palins interview responses word-for-word and was scathingly hilarious).

Marvin

Dumb Voters! Argh! How could people vote for loons like Sharron Angle, Joe Miller, & Rand Paul? Its insanity. Pure insanity.These lunatics want to take us back to the dark ages and theyre complaining about Obama not cleaning up Bushs mess fast enough? Its ludicrous! I mean seriously: LUDICROUS.

The Tea Party is very right wing in my opinion, almost fascist. It seems that America is shifting to the right in reaction to Obamas reforms. You voted for change and now that it happening your all going crazy.

FreeAmericanPatriot

I agree with Christian Liberty. America is poised for a conservative revolution.Hopefully, when we take power away from the Democrat party (socialists) and RINOs, we can phase out Social Security and Medicare, repeal Obamacare, get rid of unconstitutional welfare and unemployment insurance, reduce the size of government immensely (except for the military and law enforcement), reduce taxes, put the Bible and Jesus back in the public square, eliminate environmental and worker safety laws, squelch the homosexual agenda, deport the illegals and their anchor babies, make English the official language, and finally start getting tough with countries like Iran, Syria, and North Korea. Id also like to see a Congressional investigation into the legitimacy of Obamas birth certificate.Christine ODonnell going to win the Senate race this fall, and I can see her someday becoming the next Reagan! Support the Tea Party Express, the 9/12 Movement, the Oathkeepers, and the Three Percenters. Keep America American!!

It Makes sense. Most of the people who disapprove of both Obama and the Republicans are Conservatives upset with the conduct of Congressional Republicans.

Get a grip.Dont suggest to Herbie that he masturbate. His beloved mainsteam candidate thinks there should be laws against that.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
