The Anticipated Demise of the Democratic Party

Aside from President Obama, the second most dangerous person to the health of our country both economically and socially would without question be Harry Reid. Harry has been on a tear lately explaining how the Koch Bros. are responsible for everything wrong in the world, while at the same time, extolling the virtues of other politically engaged billionaires like Tom Steyer. Harry is quickly becoming a national joke but as conservatives, we should applaud his efforts and urge him to continue. Take for example his recent denial of the Keystone Pipeline despite bi partisan and union support:

“Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., used a parliamentary maneuver to block a bid by pipeline supporters to include the pipeline measure in an energy efficiency bill moving forward in the Senate.”

Harry will almost single handedly assure GOP victory in November, but let’s not discount past efforts by that mental giant Nancy Pelosi and of course our fearless leader, including but not limited to:

Obamacare – recent findings have discovered that many duplicate enrollees have been counted helping boost enrollment figures, and that only 80% or so of those enrollees have actually made a payment. Even still, the ACA remains as unpopular as ever, and will probably decline in popularity considering events that still have yet to unfold – namely the employer mandate:

“Local business owners might be hoping the Affordable Care Act’s insurance mandates cover sticker shock. The law’s employer coverage mandate doesn’t take effect until 2015, but early plan renewals are starting to roll in. And for some businesses, the premium jumps are positively painful. Local insurance brokers are reporting spikes ranging from 35 percent to 120 percent on policies that renew from July to December.”

Benghazi – despite the left’s very vocal efforts to stop everyone from paying attention to this, last week’s email discovery resulting in this week’s special committee is not good news for the Democrats. The fact is that Benghazi was over run by terrorists, and because of previous attacks earlier in the year on the consulate, and that other ally countries had pulled out of the area, we knew an attack was pending, we failed to protect our people, and then the administration lied about it for political reasons.

IRS – not a good week for Lois Lerner, nor the administration and it will soon become public knowledge that there was a concerted effort to deny conservative groups tax exempt status that goes very far up the chain, and when Obama tried to pin it on “just a few rogue agents in Cincinnati” making “boneheaded decisions” – he was being less than truthful, which seems to be a pattern with this administration.

Add these three major issues to the .1% first quarter GDP growth, the loss of 800K people in the labor pool, the historically low labor participation rate, high gas and food prices, and the foreign policy mess, and it’s easy to see that the demise of the current far left Democratic party is imminent and that is a funeral I look forward to.

    Gosh, you sure do like to talk, Cluster. And to what effect? Just sayin’.

      As an observer, once I get past the irony of the blog’s biggest windbag sniping at someone else for “liking to talk” I’d say that the biggest difference between rico’s endless blathering and Cluster’s pattern of making significant, relevant and interesting points is, well, endless blathering vs significant, relevant and interesting points.

      I’ve noticed that those of us who have come under attack for the number of words we use are attacked by those who are inept at using words themselves, as well as not very good at understanding them.

      Cluster is a contributor, rico is a wannabe speed bump. Just sayin’………………….

    There’s another dynamic at play that very few people are talking about that will, I think, reflect badly on Liberals come November if Conservatives start exploiting it, and that is the increased propensity of the Left to punish people who disagree with them. There are so many examples of ordinary people losing their jobs, being shouted down at public meetings and even being arrested (or being threatened with prosecution) for simply disagreeing with Leftist policies that I think a concentrated independent campaign by Conservative groups to highlight the Left’s infringements on basic freedoms of speech and religion will pay strong dividends this fall.

      Excellent point, J.R. I’ve been noticing the same thing myself.

      It is as if the RRL has decided that the 2012 presidential election was a mandate, such overwhelming support for the policies of the Left that they are now free to expose their dark and dirty selves that have been hiding behind the masks of “tolerance” and “diversity”.

      Funny, isn’t it, how every examination of the Left comes back to their redefinition of words and their rewriting of history? Now “tolerance” means “slamming down anything or anyone representing a difference of opinion and bringing the full force of Big Brother into play to enforce Groupthink”. Now “diversity” means “people who think like we do”.

      Earlier today I watched a short video clip of Martin Luther King III explaining why black people should embrace the TEA Party. On the surface that sound bite sounded interesting, but it was really just a kind of “you have to understand your enemy” kind of thing. What really caught my attention was the claim of the host that it was LBJ who was responsible for the Civil Rights Bill.

      Redefining words and terms, rewriting history, the essential elements of the Left.

      Good point JR. And I think that is largely due to the fact that it is becoming more and more difficult for them to deny that their policies are failures and that they are losing the hearts and minds of average Americans, so they just become louder and more extreme.

      Amazona nailed it – Now “diversity” means “people who think like we do”.

      and even being arrested

      Like the guy at the school board meeting in New Hampshire who questioned the pornographic book his 14-year-old daughter was assigned to read. He was arrested and had to post $700 bail for supposedly exceeding the board’s 2 minute rule. He exhibited amazing self-restraint.

        ….or getting fired……

        From Fox News: (emphasis mine)

        A San Francisco arts organization has parted ways with a well-known Latina actress, who was to star in its rendition of “The Vagina Monologues,” after the thespian appeared in a political ad with a California Tea Party lawmaker who is running for governor.

        “We really can’t have her in the show, unfortunately,” Eliana Lopez, the producer, told KPIX 5 of Maria Conchita Alonso’s resignation on Friday from the cast of Brava! For Women in the Arts’ upcoming Spanish performance of the Eve Ensler play.

        “Of course she has the right to say whatever she wants. But we’re in the middle of the Mission. Doing what she is doing is against what we believe.”

        …or getting fired….

        David and Jason Benham have responded to HGTV dropping their home improvement series pilot, Flip It Forward, amid reports that the brothers are “anti-gay, anti-choice extremists.”

      • Cluster May 11, 2014 / 9:29 am

        Both of these are shameful examples of how extreme progressives have become, and how they are losing the hearts and minds of Americans. Even Andrew Sullivan and other gay groups opposed the handling of Brandon Eich, but that didn’t thwart the extreme vocal minority.

        ….or just not hired….. (emphasis mine)

        In his new book Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV, author Ben Shapiro claims Hollywood executives, writers, and producers have used their influence for years to promote a liberal agenda.

        And to prove his point, Shapiro interviewed several television executives — including the creators of “House,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “Friends,” “Golden Girls,” and “COPS” — who all agreed.

        Snippets of the interviews are already spreading on the Web. In one video, “Friends” co-creator Marta Kauffman acknowledges she, “Put together a staff of mostly liberal people” for her show.

        In another video, Shapiro asks “MacGyver” and “America’s Funniest Home Video” producer Vin Di Bona what he thinks of conservative critics who say everyone in Hollywood is liberal.
        >b> “I think it’s probably accurate, and I’m happy about it,” Di Bona responded.

        Shapiro says the executives were open with him because they incorrectly assumed he’s liberal himself.

        “Most of them didn’t Google me. If they had, they would have realized where I am politically,” Shapiro said. “I played on their stereotypes.”

        The interviews, as well as specific examples of bias on Hollywood shows, are sprinkled throughout Shapiro’s book.

        “Television has been perhaps the most impressive weapon in the left’s political arsenal,” he argues.

        He adds that even seemingly harmless shows like “Happy Days” and “Sesame Street” have been used to advance a progressive agenda.
