Someone had to call it. So here you go. The Republican Party has died. 1854 - 2009. And it will never, ever come back. It hath been foretold.



The GOP is dead.

The Republican Party will never, ever win another national election, and it will wither away.

I think it's pretty evident that George Bush and Dick Cheney killed it. But they had plenty of help too, as they rotted from the inside.

The remnants of the dead party will eventually splinter, with the far right wing Sarah Palin ignorant fundamentalist wing nuts going one way, and the Ron Paul limited government low taxes pro-business pro-constitution libertarians going another way.

America will become a three-party nation. The death of the GOP will shake up the political landscape. And in 2016, it'll be game-on.

But rest assured, the party of George Bush, Dick Cheney, Sarah Palin, Phil Graham, Newt Gingrich, Karl Rove, Fox News, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Alberto Gonzales, Bill O'Reilly, John Boehner, Elizabeth Dole, Mark Foley, Ted Stevens, Pat Robertson and Mike Huckabee is now dead.

Dead.

As long as there are Nielsen ratings for "news" shows, there will be politically extreme commentators, given a venue only because they can help sell advertising and eroding the spirit of commonality and compromise that this country was built upon.

To make sure, Drive a wooden spike through the heart, then run the corpse through an industrial wood chipper at full throttle. Then burn the chippings in an incinerator, like Dachou and then capture the smoke and bury at sea.

Start with the beginning of the alphabet, A, B, C, for example, B for Bush, C for Cheney... you get the picture...

R.I.P., GOP.

Let's hope it never returns. The rats are abandoning ship but where will they go? To the Democrat party to join the other rats? They are already trying to hijack the independence/anti-government/liberty movement via the tea parties.

I hope your right, Keith, but knowing how power works via the media monopolies, military industrial complex and the growing national security state I doubt this will change anything.

It's nice to see the Democrat numbers dropping like a rock too, and those Independent numbers rising.

Maybe we're finally getting somewhere?

Maybe people have figured it out?

I would like to see something along the lines of a "Leave Me Alone" party. Stay out of people's bedrooms. Abortion, fine, its your decision. Gay Marriage, fine, I don't care. Not bothering me. Want to do drugs, that's ok, but don't look for support when you bottom out.
On the other hand, I do want the Federal and State governments to uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights. The rights of the people should be protected from any government infringement. Do not "permit" around those rights.
The only problem is that unions love the current government and will fight tooth and nail to keep it going and growing.

Keith, the "Republican Party" might have died, but the corporate forces it represents have merely abandoned the shell of its body like a cicada sheds its skin and leaves it hanging on a tree. (Oddly enough, I've seen a few shells from cicada-like insects here.) The voracious insect that is the Corporate Party is now infesting the "Democratic Party."

The Arlen Specter party-switch is an example. Specter has voted against all sorts of things the "Democratic Party" supposedly stands for. He's been in favour of Bush's wars, electronic eavesdropping on every American, against unions... all sorts of things liberals like me hate. But the Dems have been eager to take him into their fold just so they'll have 60 votes on the roll of their faction in the Senate. I don't know why they think that, because in the sound clip I heard of Specter's press conference, he said twice that he would not be "an automatic 60th vote."

The fact that the Dem power structure would accept someone who's 180 degrees opposite their supposed principles shows it's all about faction, not positions. "My team is stronger than your team!" But their team doesn't stand for anything other than the colours of the guernsey they wear to the game.

As time goes on, the corporate powers that run America will cement their takeover of the Dems. It should take another decade before people realise that the alleged "liberal" party is NOT. But fun 'n' games for the Big Boys fooling the sheeple until then.

The only ones left will be the evangelists. The rest will try to latch on to the next up and coming party (probably Libertarian of some kind) and try to make it their own.

Or... just as the President and the Democrats who held the purse strings in Congress for the past two years say they are finally clearing the "economic wreckage" of the last administration with yet MORE and greater spending, the Spring Bounce ended abruptly and the second wave of economic collapse commenced. Whole new waves of foreclosures began to sweep across the United States with more and more of them in the Alt-A, prime and commercial loan categories. The stock market equities get their butts kicked AGAIN and foreign faith in US Dollars begins to dissolve completely. This time Obama can't dodge the bullet by blaming Bush, because he was talking credit for the Spring Time Dead Cat Bounce like it was Socialist Salvation. The wishy-washy masses are too fed up to continue blaming Bush et al, so they finally turn on BO and the Democrats. The Republicans feed off of the impeccable logic of Ron Paul and true Fiscal Conservatism rises again - transforming the Republican Party for the better. Their first act is to begin discussions overseas about new commodity-backed currencies. Then it is the Democrats who sound old and decrepit as they wave flags calling the Republicans "unpatriotic" for even considering support of a new reserve currency.

Actually, the Dems and "Liberals should be scared shitless that the Repubs are going to split. Why? Because the new parties that arise will get a jump on the American electorate well before the Dem @arty splits. Yes, the Dems will split but long after the Repubs split. They will then be laggards and their remnant will have no impact on the American landscape, while the already established new parties lead the way.

Dem supremacy will be short-lived, but they will manage to fuck up this country considerably in the short time they will rule over us.

I hope the tea parties are the first to the political market and will lead the way going forward. I am proud to say I was at the first one in NYC in Feb 2009 when we had 150 people, and the second one on tax day when we got twelve to fifteen thousand!

Keith, time for you to drink your four-o-clock tea!

Now, "This" hath been foretold.

it's amazing that only 55% of us are dems or republicans; that kid should have told Barney Frank that americans were leaving organized politics in droves since both parties sucked and, before long, the congress is going to be as unlikeable as the vatican.

Charles said...

The same shit was said about the dems in 2002. I goes in cycles and once the libertarian wing of the party starts primarying the religotards and then the Dems can't throw social issues up anymore people will look at the proliferate spending (as they already have stated 2, teabagging and all) Republicans will resurface.

Of course the party will look very different than it does today. The bounce back will be around 2014 if I had 2 guess. When people start realizing almost 50% of there pay is going to all levels of taxation.

Much of that money is in the hands of Goldman. The stock market should go to 10,000.

The second wave of defaults are coming. But the FED and the govt seem confident in buying up all this MBS crap at our expense.

The average American is simply too stupid to care. Majority of Americans support what Obama and Congress is doing.

The great crash will come in after 2012. Then the Republicans might have a chance again.

The Republican party is changing yes, but it isn't going anywhere. The Indy number rises every year except election years, when the Indy's realize they need to go vote in a primary and change back to a party to do so. Party ID is a good indicator but it isn't a rule. Every state has different rules about party affiliation, and many states don't require any party affiliation (like Virginia). The same stink about third parties was made in 92'. Our government is DESIGNED to have two parties.

Anonymous said...

The GOP is now the POOP (People Out Of Power). They may be reduced in number, but those numbers are still out there and dangerous. If not politically, then socially. They are extremists of the nastiest kind. They will unite around Palin, et al. and continue to spew their anti-Obama bile wherever and however they can. Mostly on Fox TV. They still scare me. Way too irrational and reactionary. With enough desperate incendiary prodding by Hannity/Limbaugh/Beck etc. they could become homegrown terrorists like Tim McVeigh.

Which faction do you think Fox News will end up supporting? Ron Paul's side, or Sarah Palin's?Keith, all that Fox is doing is a recapitulation of what other Murdoch properties do. The Daily Mail, News of the World, NY Post, etc. Lots of flag-waving and triumphal hooting for the frustrated pencildicks who need to feel like they're part of something-anything- that's #1. Jingoism to an extreme.

Meanwhile, the word count in the stories goes down, down, down. No deep analyses. You get a couple of talking points, and you get your shills to bray them over and over again ... like the sheep in Animal Farm. The readership can't really read Foreign Affairs Quarterly or The Economist because they use words that are 8th Grade Reading Level or higher, so no real danger of them defecting or figuring out that they're being played like fools.

And yeah, advertisers love a large, gullible audience. You can sell them schlock - like the ShamWow. Or the My Snoring Solution headband. Or the connection between Saddam Hussein and 9/11, and the fact that no WMDs were ever found somehow proves that the invasion was justified...

Microsoft and Cisco developed tools that allow China, Australia, Saudi Arabia, etc. to sniff, censor, and limit IP traffic. Those tools will be deployed here in the USA soon.

We should all stand up and cheer Fox News, Rush, Hannity, O'Reily, Glen, Savage... for they are driving the last nail in the GOP coffin. After Bush and Cheney, one would think that those bigots have learned something! But God! I enjoy listening to them. They never stop to amaze me. In their eagerness to re-invent themselves, it seems that their rage and their non-sense are taking them to the abyss. They sound so pathetic! And the problem is that they still have no clue that eight years of Bush helped change America for good. There's no way in hell they can drive the populace again by fear. But they are still trying, even when most Americans don't believe them anymore..LOL!

You silly people! You talk of the gop going down in gleeful hopes of a new party coming out. And waaay in the backof your little minds you even have a glimmer of hope that this party will give us, "the people", a shot at a better, more representative government, that things will change for the better. And this as you have just seen the rate of change for BOTH existing parties plummet! What are you smoking, or are you really that dumb? There is no number of parties that will help the situation the US is in, silly rabbit!
See, The parties you DO have you have to work for, and with. Any political party, like any business, needs $$ to survive. Both the dem and rep parties found a source of funds in the corporations, but why? Their members were not out there with signs and bullhorns, they were watching idol. How much money have you guys given to your party of choice? No, just sit back, let the country goto sh@t, and keep hoping for some knight in shining armor to save your sorry ass, whether it be Obama, a third party, Ron Paul, whatever, just so long as YOU don't get out there and pound the pavement, get involved or anything. No just sit there and dream, fools...

The Dem's now have more than an adequate length of rope to go out and hang themselves with and if their past is any indicator of what they will do in the future, that is exactly what they will do. Carter Part II - Revenge of the Asshats - now playing. Take one look at Pelosi, Biden, Frank, Dodd and tell me that the Dem's are going to come out of this shitstorm smelling like a rose. As for Obama's charms and public speaking skills - I doubt that the wildcard in the coming years (Islamist extremists) are very impressed by his happy talk or what his old lady wears while planting vegetables with kiddies.

There are two HUGE problems with THAT particular fantasy:

1. The Republidiot party has solidly "branded" itself as the party of uneducated, thought-hating, logic-hating, intellect-hating DUMMIES. And there will never be a shortage of those. In fact, their numbers are growing by rabbit-like red-state breeding, and the brain-drain exodus of smart professionals to countries THAT VALUE INTELLECT.

2. The republicans said "the Dems will never win another election" -- they said that after 1988. And they said it again after 2004. Were they right?

Do tell in the present state of world wide affairs of where your intellect will be held in high regard and your wisdom as unquestionable?Well, let's see, Norway gives out Nobel Prizes, while we give out sports trophies.

There are TWENTY SEVEN countries with higher math skills scores than the U.S. All of the countries mentioned elsewhere in this post, plus places like Latvia, Poland, Greece, Turkey, Thailand. 17 countries have better reading skills. Frankly, I'm SICK of being among all you DOPES.

China and India are well on their way to EATING OUR LUNCH with their big populations of people willing to endure the "shame" of BEING SMARTER.

Thinking that the country of McJobs, Realtwhores, and Hummer-driving mullet-wearers is going to stay on top for even our lifetimes is the PINNACLE of dangerous ignorant arrogance.

Sweden, Denmark and lots of other countries give college educations FOR FREE, because they VALUE INTELLECT and know it's the way to bring the WHOLE COUNTRY up, rather than hatefully divide and conquer.

I know people in my field who have moved to the Netherlands to teach, where college is also state-paid, and the students actually want to LEARN, not DRINK AND CHEAT for four years.

Here, the Republidiots like to kill the Pell Grants so that the thieving college loan companies can enslave every student not born into wealth with half a lifetime's exhorbitant interest rates, in order to make a buck.

Which is one reason why no one born here wants to go into medicine any more.

Which is one reason why no one can afford health care in this country anymore. (And also why all the doctors you see nowadays are from India or Asia---because they are the only ones willing to STUDY instead of WATCHING SPORTS for the first 9 nears of their adult lives.)

And now, because of our BAD education values, we have a whole generation of dopes who are now PARENTS, instilling their anti-learning values into their children and not able to help them with basic homework or learn how to learn to they can someday get a DECENT job. And so the problem is metasticized, permanent.

For an example of this societal ignorance, lots of idiot repubs proudly cite the GOP as the "party of Lincoln" because Lincoln was a "great Republican". Only problem is, most of you are TOO STUPID to realize that Lincoln and other republicans of his day were HUGE LIBERALS!!!!

Well, you should be in heaven right now because Republicans do NOT control the Senate, the Congress (haven't for over two years now) or the Oval Office. Soon, a non-Republican will appoint a Supreme Court Justice. A non-Republican holds the keys to the nation's treasury, and a non-Republican is in control of appointing the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank. The leader of the Justice Department was selected by a non-Republican and the Secretary of Education with a $100 billion dollar budget was selected by a non-Republican. I don't know if you are going to have a hard time believing this or not Junior, but even if you move to China or India or Norway or Sweden (say hi to the bikini team for me if you go) - there will be a group of people (probably a large group) who have a differing opinion and who have a differing intelect (plus or minus) than your own.

Wow, great comebacks and counterarguments. You have about the intellectual capacity of my goldfish.

And YES I'm in heaven, or at least very relieved, that non-war criminals are now in power, the destruction of the constitution to make a buck may have been halted, that logical arguments will predominate over fascist fear mongering and treasonous population-dividing, and that the party that admits they ONLY want to help the RICH, WHITE AND "NORMAL" has lost to the party OF THE PEOPLE.

And 95% of my friends agree WITH ME. And about 70% of the country. And about 90% of the world. Mainly because we aren't so cowardly as to be afraid of skin color or funny middle names.
