It was bound to happen! I just KNEW it! It’s all OUR fault! Damn voters- yup- it’s all our fault!
WASHINGTON (AP) — Dear voter: Want to know why Democrats and Republicans in Congress find it so hard to work together to solve tough problems like the debt ceiling, health care and Social Security?
Look in the mirror.
Americans gripe about cowardly, self-serving politicians, and Congress doubtlessly has its feckless moments and members. But voters are quick to overlook their own role in legislative impasses that keep the nation from resolving big, obvious, festering problems such as immigration, the long-term stability of Medicare, and now, the debt ceiling.
See? He says look in the mirror! YOU! And YOU! And ME! All Our Fault!
The author of the above is apparently deluded as he states
Here’s the truth: The overwhelming majority of senators and House members do what their constituents want them to do. Or, more to the point, they respond to people in their districts who bother to vote.
Seriously? How old is this “author?” Not old enough to remember Kerry et all using their super delegate powers to wipe out the votes of their constituents. You know- those pesky people in states like MA who voted OVERWHELMINGLY for Hillary Clinton. They voted for the fraud.
The author blames it all on voters who do not show up for primaries. Completely ignoring the rigged primaries of 08. The caucus fraud. The stealing of delegates from the people’s choice to prop up the selected one. Totally ignores the fact that if the DNC had listened to the voters we would have had a winner at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Not one mention does he make of how my primary vote was hurled off the heights of the Rocky Mountains like litter on the wind.
He does get a couple things right- to be fair.
For a growing number of senators and representatives, the only risk is in their party’s primary, not in the general election. Most voters, and many news outlets, ignore primaries. That gives control to a relative handful of motivated, hard-core liberals (in Democratic contests) and full-bore conservatives (in GOP primaries).
But many House districts today aren’t balanced, thanks largely to legislative gerrymandering and Americans’ inclination to live and work near people who share their views and values.
The result is districts so solidly conservative that no GOP nominee can possibly lose, or so firmly liberal that any Democratic nominee is certain to win. In these districts, the primary is the whole ball game.
THAT part about gerrymandering he got right. Take a gander at some of the legislative districts. Snakes, yo-yos, lollipops.Course he does not mention that lovely little quirk that gives places like Philly a greater proportion of delegates because they have a higher population. Even though small districts like mine have a higher percentage of registered voters turn out on election day. As far as I am concerned if they don’t turn out- screw them. Why dilute my vote? That feeds right back to the DNC taking delegates away from Hillary in Michigan because people “might” have wanted to vote for the fraud.
It’s all our fault! It was only a matter of time til some kid threw that out there. The race card is getting old.
Rant over. Your turn.
