One thing that became perfectly clear during Obama’s first hundred days, the Republican Party is totally void of ideas on  just about everything, and the only thing they are good at is saying NO.  They even managed to strip 900 million out of the stimulus bill for Pandemic preparedness. (Oh yeah   Dodd helped) looks kinda foolish about now.

The latest Gallop poll shows the Republican Party sinking to a 24% share of the voters vs 35% for Democrats.  Check out the Historical relationship HERE.

The interesting % in this poll is the number of people identifying themselves as independents.  Fully 40% say they are independent and crying out for leadership from somebody.  Probably the big reason Obama won.  At this point in time I don’t think they got what they voted for.

Therefore  I believe the way is open for a third party candidate to win the Presidency soon.  Look at the traction Ron Paul got in the past election, another huge indicator people are crying out for leadership.  No, I don’t think Ron is the answer, I’m saying a big part of his message resonated with a lot of young people who saw this huge economic problem coming, who saw their jobs being shipped overseas, who saw large numbers of illegals come in and take their blue collar jobs that use to pay good wages all disappear.

Now take a look at what they see now.  They see all this Free Market Crap disintegrate into the Second Great Republican Depression In Spades.  401K’s disappearing, talk of Social Security disappearing, medical care unaffordable and unattainable for a large number of people.  They see many around them loosing their homes to fraudulent banksters, their jobs to greedy corporations, their news sources disappearing because of stupid merger debt loaded up by CEO’s looking for the big paycheck, Banksters making more money in a month then they will earn in a lifetime.  They stare into a future blankly wondering what in the hell they will be able to do with their lives and listen to MSM talking heads blame them for being spend thrifts, greedy , stupid people.

While we might be in despair today, we must remember we have been here before.  We came out of this before and we can do it again and the hell of it is it’s up to us.  We can make them behave with the only weapons we have, our bodies and the little money they have left us.  By applying both as a community we can win.

    I’ve been saying it for years. What happened to moderate Republicans? Listen, man, I’m not so keen on abortion either. Illegal immigration bothers me too. But fuck, does it always have to be the LA Riots? Can’t we all just get along?

    Fuck no. So cool, the Republicans are dying. I suggest we do everything we can to hasten their exit. This time, there will be no turning of the other cheek.
