Taking over both House of Congress at this point in time in our history is like being promoted to Captain on the Titanic after the iceberg incident.

Yep.  Talk about a Catch-22!  The Republicans are damned if they do, and damned if they don't.  If they do take the Senate - you know THEY are going to be blamed for everything that is going wrong.  If they don't - Obama's destruction is unfettered.

BTW, I'm serious about voting Democrat to kill the GOPe. The 'establishment' has declared war on me and us. The GOP Establishment needs to learn that war is a two way street. At any cost.

I don't care who wants to place blame where.
Get it done.
We'll worry about blame later.

You, friend, are nuts.   The "establishment" wants to win back the Senate to further conservative goals and you oppose that.

It is YOU who are declaring war by voting for a scumbag Democrat.

He is not popular at all and if he cared about anyone but himself - he would have retired.

(Slimey bastards and Democrats) never apologize, they never resign, and they never retire. Everything is always about them. They care about nothing else on the planet than themselves.
 
That is a sorry ass way to live if you ask me, but that is how they do it these days in D.C.

McConnell is all that and more.  As I have said before and it still holds true - as we Kentuckians get closer and closer to our May 20th primary, I have not seen a SINGLE sign anywhere supporting Mitch McConnell.  Right now, in addition to flowers blooming in yards everywhere - election signs are everywhere.  Everyday, I am seeing more and more Matt Bevin and Ditch Mitch signs in yards.  There's a good chance McConnell will lose this fall to the Democrat.  He is not popular at all and if he cared about anyone but himself - he would have retired.

How is McConnell going to lose to a Democrat?  He's trailing Grimes by one point and everybody's writing him off.

He'll win and he'll win handily in a wave election.

Government is the problem, so what we need is a new government.

Ok. That's true. But short of a 'new government' we can start by not electing the same clowns in over and over again, decade after decade. I will vote Democrat if I have to, to kill the 'establishment'. The GOPe can go to hell. Once we break the strangle hold, we can begin to rebuild.
 
It all starts with McConnell. I say, send the bastard to hell, even if I have to vote Democrat.

Democrats are totalitarians at heart. All you will kill is any remaining  vestiges of freedom.

Different clowns do not make for a different circus, and electing different politicians does not make for a different government.

Of course they are. And so is the GOP establishment. That is why they get along so well. Does anyone believe that McCain is not a totalitarian. Of course he is. That's why he loves Obama. They are kindred spirits.
 
So, according to our, yours and mine, logic. Nothing will make any difference anyway. So why not?
Why not vote Democrat. The "Republicans" have betrayed me enough. Now it is my turn to 'betray' them. I am not a sheep, or a cow, I will not continue to vote 'Republican' just for the sake of it. If they keep foisting these crony 'good ol' boys' on me, They can all go to hell.

I just don't think everyone gets what the problem is here... Reagan did, and we quote him, but don't "get it".

Ronnie said "government is the problem".

Democrats and Republicans are the government, thus they are the problem.

If you believe that electing a different Republican will change things, you're wrong.

Government is the problem, so what we need is a new government.

which - assuming arguendo that "government is the problem" - means merely switching one problem for a new problem.

And right now we're getting an object lesson in just how right George Washington was.

Twenty-two years ago I stumbled across, and supported the idea of Ross Perot, since GHW Bush had failed to be perfect. Clinton was the result.

Two years after the Perot debacle, I quit drinking, and began the slow steady process of regaining my sanity.

I now know with certainty, that if I desire a more conservative government, I will NOT get it by voting for a democrat.

You will not get it by voting 'Republican' either. GW was a 'Republican', but he was not a conservative by any measure.
 
We keep voting for the same 70 year old people, we are going to keep getting the same 70 year old results.
