    …and this is why my black friend calls the democrats “the plantation”.

    Do you think they’ll ever wake-up?

    • badbadlibs

      No.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/QQLXNIDOPWG2AESPCZZOW5J2EY Target Destroyed

      Yes, I think they will wake up the moment that the shot that starts the next Civil War is fired. But only then. Sad isn’t it, that these idiots have to put us all through a nightmare that could have been avoided.

  • badbadlibs

    The public is just plain brainwashed. Republican equals bad, democrat equals good. No rational reason behind the aforementioned sentence, they just know that is what has been drilled into their pea size brains.
    We’re in big trouble…yep. Big.

    • warpmine

      Chalk it all up to indoctrination for the first twelve years of public education…..I mean, what else can you expect.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/QQLXNIDOPWG2AESPCZZOW5J2EY Target Destroyed

        That and 40+ years of media bias on a criminal scale.

    • bobemakk

      Blame the lamestream media. They are the brainwashers.

  • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

    This is why we need to show stuff by Crowder, Zo and Whittle to all the democrats we know. They need to be educated properly.

    • BikerHoop

      How about we round them up 50,000 at a time, entice them to an arena, lock them in and show these vids on the huge screens. Show them repeatedly for a period of no less than 24 hours and not to exceed seven days. We could even serve them conservative cuisine, like pizza and tacos.

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

        Perfect!! I love it! :-D

      • opinionatedhermit

        Actually, that sounds pretty cool. Can I get a ticket for myself and my family? We can call it Tea Party 2.0 – 4 years to take our Party and our Country back…..

        FYI, The Republicans didn’t win their first Presidential election …. either….

        It took a lot of work …. against insurmountable odds…..

        • BikerHoop

          No tickets necessary. It’s free to conservatives. You might have to serve food, though… 50,000 people can eat a lot of pizza and tacos.

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/3XDNXU4SH53MLHHVSZKI6KKKUE Eric Sweet

            especially if it is free pizza. Liberals love anything that is free.

            • BikerHoop

              LOL! Ain’t that the truth… pizza, phones, health care… you name it.

      • http://twitter.com/ember_george Ember George

        and sweet tea (party) and Chick-fil-A!

        • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

          mmmmm Chick Fil A…

        • BikerHoop

          I’ve never had the opportunity to eat at (or have not even seen) a Chick-fil-A. Nearest one is about 120 miles from home… a little too far to go to eat a dang chicken! If I’m ever near one I’m gonna stop, though.

          • UnCL3

            get the deluxe chicken sandwich with a little mayo…yum!

            • BikerHoop

              Sandwich sounds okay, but I don’t like mayo.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/OOKK3KBK7M2DX5OKOV7ODZ3QTA Jay

        Sounds like what 0 has in mind for the TEA Party.

        • BikerHoop

          LOL!

      • UnCL3

        use “free beer today”

        • BikerHoop

          HA! That’d work!!

  • JeffWRidge

    Too many people only think they know the positions on issues being taken by the respective parties and ideologies. They’ve been inundated with so much propaganda that they don’t know what the truth is. I really wish that every American would turn off all of the news outlets, and do their own research on the issues and where the parties and ideologies stand on them. They might be surprised to learn that they have more in common with conservatives than they think.

  • Susanna958

    “Let me take that back”? Let me take back my own thoughts so I can be a democrat!!??

    • ecosse

      exactly. groupthink trumps the self.

    • BikerHoop

      Kinda makes you shake your head, don’t it?!?

  • aPLWBinAK

    They all hemmed and hawed and tried to come up with something pertinate to say about raising taxes…..but nobody mentioned what the REAL problem is….spending

  • Nukeman60

    I’m probably a pretty strong Democrat

    Probably? You don’t even know whether or not your ‘pretty strong’ about what you are politically? How can you be pretty strong and think that it’s only probably so? Ahhhhhhh.

    Bring on the fiscal cliff. These people need to feel our pain.

    • BikerHoop

      Most folks can’t discern between Dem and Rep because they’re so uninformed that they have no idea what the difference is. They say “I’m a Democrat” because that’s what their daddy is and told them they will be, too.

      • unseen1

        no they gave the answer they thought he wanted. It’s very “uncool” to be a republician. That is something the GOPe doesn’t understand. For the avg person they now think GOPe means country clubbers or bible thumpers because the GOPe doesn’t stand for anything anymore they allowed themselves to be painted negatively by the dems.

        • NYGino

          We have to just abandon the “GOP” and what it has morphed into and recognize and encourage the idea that the majority of our nation shares conservative views and values and wants to adhere to our Constitution and recognize that in domestic politics as in international stature to capitulate to any degree makes it that much easier to capitulate to a greater degree, a slippery slope.

          The Constitutional Freedom Party could be a great place to start.

          • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

            YAY!!

        • BikerHoop

          You’ve definitely hit one nail on the head – the GOPe doesn’t stand for anything anymore. They will no longer represent conservatives. They will no longer represent American ideals. They will no longer represent anyone other than liberals. It’s time for a third party to rise from the ashes.

        • cabensg

          The media has brainwashed anyone who watches them to obtain facts and most aren’t interested enough to look any further. If the media was on the side of Republicans it be uncool to be a Democrat. From sticoms to news to movies to talk show hosts to comedians all you hear is Republican bashing and lies. Conservatives who actually stand up for what Republicans should stand for are even more hated and reviled than Republicans.

          The liberal media is the enemy of liberty in America.

  • sherylandthesixers

    Good on you Stephan. Who knows..maybe one of those people will actually do some research for themselves and stop blindly following democratic talking points.

    • unseen1

      maybe instead of praying these people do “research” the GOPe will get off their butts and teach/explain/win these people over by talking about who they are and what the GOP’s platform is.

  • yhxqqsn

    Makes me nauseous. These people can vote and might have or might.

  • notebene

    Crowder is a funny guy, but these people just make me sad and angry. They voted in this Imposter because he promised them free stuff that he has zero intent on following through on. To top it off, we are going to financially crash because of their stupidity! I have four kids that don’t deserve the future that these idiots voted for! I was raised to be fiscally responsible and I worked three jobs to pay for my own education. I’m sick of lazy people taking advantage of my responsible choices, and expecting me and other responsible people to pay for their lazy, irresponsible life choices! Frankly, I think there ought to be a civics test that you must pass to get the privilege to vote! Notice I say that it should be a privilege and not a right. Rights are abused and taken advantage of with little thought of their power. Look at the ignoramuses in this video to prove my point! A privilege is valued and it should come with the responsibility of being educated to know how to make an intelligent choice. These sheep are too stupid and I’m tired of cleaning up after their mess. It’s not rocket science to make a budget and stay in it! Yet the clowns these fools voted in could not make a grocery shopping list without dropping a trillion dollars! And they get paid to be this stupid?!

    • unseen1

      they did not vote for Obama because he promised free stuff they voted in Obama because Romney failed to explain the alternative. I dind’t see Romney out warning about coming middle class tax cuts. I didn’t see Romney when the SPeaker cut the fiscal cliff deal with Obama to “get it off the table” before the election. I didn’t see Romney pounding Obamacare repeal every day. I didn’t see ROmney promising to not cut government just cut the rate of increase. I didn’t see Romney out explaining why illegal immigration destroys middle class good paying jobs. I didn’t see Romeny explain why Obama’s and the fed’s policy of QE was a hidden tax destroying people’s wealth at a rate of almost 20% over the last 4 years. I didn’t see Romney explain why lower energy is the lifeblood of the economy andhow Obama was destroying the energy makers ability to drill for new oil , transport the oil or how ND was the only state having good economic times because of its drilling.

      Romney offered nothing but that he wasn’t Obama. He didn’t make the sell. It was not becaus eObama promised free stuff but that Romney failed to convince a majority that with him and a growing economy they wouldn’t need the “free stuff”

      • cabensg

        Exactly!

      • notebene

        No…they bought Obama’s hard sell of how they are victims for being a stupid woman, or gay, or any color other than white. He then moved on to further scare tactics with the elderly, telling them that Medicare would be endangered under Romney, when it’s actually Odumbocare that’s syphoning 714 billion, just to start, away from Medicare. Every point you made, covered in every one of the debates. The problem is that people have gotten used to collecting a check sitting on their ass. They have zero self respect, and they believe that a paying failing administration is the answer. Most of them are way too stupid to get that the “free stuff” is at the ultimate cost of their freedom and that the taxpayers are getting fewer and fewer. Even if they get that hike on the alleged wealthy, it would only cover about 8 days worth of the government being open! I agree that the GOP sold everyone who needed any alternative other than socialism completely out. This election was nothing more than banana republic scam. We had the choice of democrat communist or GOP socialism light. Now we have a despot in power and there will be no negotiating with him…he’s on yet another vacation. The Americans who voted for this get what they deserve. I’m angry for those of us who have fought for the truth the entire time and got nothing but shit to show for it. It’s cool to be ignorant and lazy…Odumbo’s a prime example.

  • unseen1

    so much for Romney being the perfect candidate. He couldn’t even explain to people like this why being a republician is good. When Reagan ran for POTUS people knew what he stood for.

    The problem with the GOP is not that they lose arguments to the dems its that they don’t even try to win them anymore. They don’t believe in Reaganism so instead of promoting reaganism/conservatism instead they try to be like the dems and the dems simple get people to think the gop are the dems.

  • CO2isGood

    Dumb as fence-posts.

    Low-information voters… scourage of America. Scum of the earth.

  • opinionatedhermit

    That was excellent.

    That is exactly how to show people what side of the issues they are really on.

    “That makes you a Republican.”

    LOL!!!

    Steve, that was awesome!

  • FreeManWalking

    This goes to show that when STUPID people vote, We end up with a Dumb @$$ in the WH being directed by his commie loving socialist marxist handlers.

    • sarahsupporter

      The stupid people are Obama’s base. And he knows it and played them like a violin.

  • http://twitter.com/ember_george Ember George

    What is sad is they aren’t calling themselves democrat or republican because they agree with one ideal but because of which one they perceive as being ‘cool’. Wake the @#% up people!

  • stage9

    This video proves that good PR works. Democrats have been better than Republicans at articulating the economic problems and the solutions. Albeit BAD solutions.

      …unfortunately, those idiots will pull us down with them

  • kong1967

    Proof that they have no idea what Democrats (or Republicans) are acually doing. When they actually have to speak for themselves they don’t support what the Democrats are doing and they still call themselves Democrats…..because they don’t know the Democrats are doing exactly what they said shouldn’t be done.

    • sarahsupporter

      Sad, because they all voted Democrat I am sure.

      • kong1967

        From the sound of it some of them may not have even voted. Some of them sounded like they didn’t know for sure what party they would consider themselves as, but defaulted to Democrat because that’s what the government school system programs them to be.

  • Constitution Lover(underconsta

    Its like your saying a bad word when you say R e p u b l i c a n. To my knowledge this has been mostly if not all began only since Obama – nation propaganda machine.

  • boats48

    The first step in stopping this insanity is to regain control of the media. Presently, they are the primary culprits in the “dumbing down” of America. They spin stories to benefit the WH, ignore stories that could hurt it, and demonize the Republican Party as racist, extreme, and intransigent. I have not renewed my newspaper or magazine subscriptions for this very reason. Hopefully, enough of you feel likewise and do the same. The left aren’t the only ones capable of boycott.

  • Yazz55

    They dutifully regurgitate the propaganda they’ve been spoon fed by the libfag media.

  • NCHokie02

    Amazing how common sense people become when you just present them with some ideas without saying who’s ideas they are and they tend to lean to the conservative side, at least in spending and taxes that is (social issues are a completely different realm).

    However if he would have come out and said Republicans believe this and want this and Obama doesn’t they would have tried to make something up in their head that even they didn’t understand as to why Obama was right and they would agree with him.

    To those dummies who don’t even know what the fiscal cliff is…they are just part of the politically uneducated and shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

  • libertyandtyranny

    The democrats have done a brilliant job, along with the help of the international conglomerate mainstream media, funded by anti- American socialists like George Soros, at FOOLING the American people. I guess all those words they hurled at Repubs worked- racists, sexists, homophobes, etc. Just a bunch of distractions, and now they will all be clobbered by the blood-sucking socialist democrats!

      I would say that applies to the bulk of the population. You don’t need brains, facts, or even a brain cell to get elected. You just need a good PR campaign…and that good PR campaign is what keeps Democrats down on the farm.

      • tinlizzieowner

        Actually Laurel, that’s what keeps most of the Democrats in the bid metropolitan areas. There’s work to do ‘down on the farm’. Now if you had used the word ‘plantation’, I’d agree 100% ;-) ;-)

    This batch of clods can’t tell us what the ‘fiscal cliff’ is but I’ll bet money they all know what ‘Snooki’s’ (Jersey Shore) bra size is, or who won American Idol last week.
