    Or the numbers concerning those that get their "news" from the Internet. Any silly idea you have can be supported with "evidence" from the Internet.

    Is the Republican Party now controlled by Karl Rowe ?

    The Rise of Karl Rove | Politics | Vanity Fair

    "Not long ago, Karl Rove seemed toxic: the brains of a disastrous presidency, tarred by scandal. Today, as the mastermind of a billion-dollar war chest

    What now seems like the disparate ravings of a fanatic, in time, I'm certain will all make sense. He's most likely putting the finishing touches on his Manifesto as we speak. If I may be so bold as to suggest the title: 'The Protocols of the Elders of the Grand Old Party'.

    "After the two biggest political scandals of the dec*ade, the Valerie Plame affair and the outcry following the firing of nine U.S. attorneys, Rove resigned in 2007 under a cloud of suspicion, barely escaping indictment."

    "WABC Radio talk-show host John Batchelor, a Republican, put it in perspective.

    It has become a truism that Republicans claims that government doesn't work, becomes a reality when they obtain office.

    Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult[3]

    "This tactic of inducing public distrust of government is not only cynical, it is schizophrenic. For people who profess to revere the Constitution, it is strange that they so caustically denigrate the very federal government that is the material expression of the principles embodied in that document."

    " Undermining Americans' belief in their own institutions of self-government remains a prime GOP electoral strategy."

    people only have the choice of two candidates?out of millions of Americans?
    the same two political parties? from many others? they are both flip sides of the same coin. candidates are selected first, both sponsored by the same corporations...then the media news owned by the very same corporations does their job on telling the masses who to elect...like mindless blind sheep. its worked for nearly a century. it is ingenious if you asked me.
    there is more to it...you would have to do extensive research.
    what I know took me 5 years of obsessive interest.

    g. luck.

    When one can't attack the content of a post, fools attack the poster.

    Wise words that I and the rest of us would do well to heed... Anyhow, far from an attack, I was just showing faith in you against the charge that you are grasping at straws when it comes to who rules the Republican party. Am I a fool to do so?

    The author of the article is Craig Unger. Calling someone a fanatic for citing an article or disparaging a posters knowledge based on a cited article without claiming any flaws with said article is foolish.

    The Protocols of the Elders of the Grand Old Party' is a play on 'The Protocols of the Elders of the Zionist Party' is a not a to subtle allegation of fanaticism for this Manifesto that I'm "most likely" writing as claimed by yourself. The basis of that claim ?

    To be clear I was responding to the post that was questioning if you are grasping at straws as to who is running the Republican Party. I'm sorry that I had faith in you that you are not and that you had it all worked out. But even if you do the expectation that you are writing a 'Manifesto' is a bit much I must admit. Perhaps you could provide us with a simple organizational chart.

    Who wants to lighten up on the personal attacks and snark, and who wants to keep it up and earn an infraction? :)

    What a concept "rule America." I don't know. :(

    Well in my town we have a mayor who everybody trusts and he does normal things like set the volunteer fd equipment budget and the cop's pay (only 4). He got elected by asking for the job on the radio. Didn't say much else but we all know who he is. and he also has a adopted son and daughter from Somalia and his wife is one of the cops.

    Maybe America is ruled by local people more than we think? My brother works in Detroit MI and says the different neighborhoods are interesting because the "war zone" ones are the only ones the same and the other ones have their own ways of doing things even parking zones and schools and he mentions the poor ones not in the war zones are some of the best for markets and parks for kids.

    Can I get an infraction? Would add to my bad boy image.

    Sadly, some people think that way. Some brag about it as an accomplishment.

    Doing something here bad to get punished accomplishment?

    To all feeling that way: soil your pants instead of ruining good threads here. That way you'll be a "bad boy" and keep it all to yourself and whoever deals with you in your life.

    Certainly, we only have two choices. We do not want twenty or a thousand. We try to pick the most qualified people for the job and eventually, the list of ten or twenty becomes a list of two and they end up on the ballot.

    As soon as you decide to run, your life is over. Your family suffers and your friends are put out because you are investigated. If you kicked a dog one time when you were four, your evil animal abuse will be headlines all across the liberal media, local TV and the net.

    Smart people know this and they choose not to run because every little problem in your life is magnified a thousand times and "they" will tear you apart. Smart people who could run and could do a great job setting things right will not run because politics is no longer about the best man or woman for the job.

    I think it was Romney (though it could've been one of the other Republican candidates) who caught all kinds of flack a few weeks back because he apparently bullied some kid in high school or maybe in college. He would've been in his early 20s at the time at worst and this was more than 30 years ago but people flamed him for it and how horrible a person he was. There was some discussion about whether you wanted someone who was such a terrible bully to even run for public office. They trotted out the victim from 30 years ago and had him running around saying that he was scarred for life and still can't sleep at night and is still in therapy over the incident or something similar. All of this over an incident done 30 years ago by a guy who was a punk kid at the time.

    I'm not a smart guy (and there are many people who will attest to that), but I would not want half of the stuff I did in college and high school brought out and aired in public. Certainly not 30 years after the fact. I think the moral of this story is only idiots run for office.

    So it's okay for you to support it at the state level but not the national level?

    Who can guarantee they will never get sick or need medical attention on any level?

    Who rules America?... I would say the corporate elitists who slipped the puppet strings off of W and tied em right onto Obama. Ya know, the ones about to kill the 1st, 4th, 5th and maybe 6th Amendments with CISPA. The 1% to those on the left and the NWO to those on the right.

    You got to admit they put on a good show of letting us believe its us... but its undeniable they divided and conquered us. Bet the Japanese wish they would have thought of dead babies as a weapon of mass destruction.

    Department of Homeland Subjucation just purchased 400,000,000 rounds of hollow point pistol ammo in case any one wants to argue about it.
