Lefty, livin' in the real world, keepin' it real

Another stolen election

1980: Ronald Reagan's henchmen made a deal with Iran regarding the American hostages they were holding. They were not to be released until after the election, in which Reagan beat Jimmy Carter. And anyone that doesn't believe that should take note of the fact that Iran released the hostages at the moment that Reagan was being sworn in. Would Jimmy Carter have won if he'd gotten the hostages freed while he was still president? We'll never know. But we do know about the deals that were made. Some people would call that treason. (Don't believe me. Google it.)

2000: Al Gore won the popular vote and from all later accounts (and recounts), he won the Florida vote. But the recount was stopped by the Republican dominated Supreme Court. So, in effect, the Supreme Court appointed George W. Bush to the presidency.

2004: One word: Ohio. This was a stolen election and it was stolen by rigged machines in Ohio. (Not to mention other states where the same was suspected.) I won't go into more detail. Google it and learn how America got screwed again.

2016: Russia, and Comey, the head of the FBI, fucked with our election just enough to put an unqualified, ignorant, mean-spirited man into the White house. And in less than two months, sane people in this country and on planet Earth are recognizing the extent of this disaster. Turns out that Trump is even stupider and crazier than we thought he was during the campaign.

2017: The GOP is setting us up for the next stolen election. Most of them know that Trump is unhinged, but they're making believe he's not. They want to pass their crazy (evil) agenda that fucks most Americans. And as long as the madman in the Oval Office will sign whatever they pass, they'll stick with him. And they will make believe that they are behind the American people 100%. What's really sickening is how many uninformed people will buy into the bullshit being sold and continue to vote for Republicans who are fucking them and destroying their lives.

2018: This is a question. Will enough Democrats show up to vote and push the criminal enterprise called the Republican Party out of office? Or, as in all mid-term elections, will Dems stay home and allow the criminals to go full speed ahead? If the past is any guide, the miserable dicks of the GOP will continue to rule us and screw us.

Sorry to sound so negative here, but I live in the real world, not the Fox/Briebart world. And reality tells me that the upcoming midterm elections will be no different than they've been in the past.

We Dems are great at standing up for "Truth, Justice, and the American Way". But most Dems really suck when it comes to turning out for midterm elections. And if each and every one of us don't do so in 2018, we will be fucked beyond repair for the next few decades. (Assuming Trump doesn't kick off a nuclear war, ... which will be the last one.)

1. That Lefty doesn't know the meaning of the real world

He's definitely one of the more deluded ones over there, although there are others that have such a tenuous grasp on reality that they should probably be locked up for their own safety.

2. Got to agree with everything up to 2016

The investigation is still on about that. The rest is speculation, but I think Trump pulling the rug out from his blue collar base will do the trick come 2018. It may look a lot like the Tea Party Triumph of 2010, in reverse.

6. BTW - if you're looking for your own 2010 pick popular issues.

 

More taxes, more debt, more illegals, less freedom, men in dresses in public bathrooms and coddling murderous cults aren't popular.

8. Of course it had nothing to do with Reagan calling our hostages ''Prisoners of War''...

Reagan had no power to promise anything as a civilian, so if he weren't elected the Iranian Government would have pissed off the re elected Carter (who they were getting concession after concession from).

Does Not seem plausible that Reagan could make a deal. But hey I do understand the desperate need to defend Carter. Ya might want to google the ALgiers accords,

3. Every recount of the 2000 election showed Bush won.

Why would I believe the rest of this piece while it contains a lie that is so easy to disprove?

7. Yep, I do not understand how so many believe out and out lies on the left.

Not one, not a single one, showed Owlgore won Florida. There were several audit companies that came in after the fact for "unofficial" recounts. They all showed W won.

Another lie, series of actually, surrounds the Martin/Zimmerman incident.

9. External Locus of Control. Everything that goes wrong for them is someone else's fault.
