I’m reffering to Buddy Roemer. He gets it, He understands. He has progressive views and isn’t afraid to speak the truth. There is no wonder why the GOP has disowned, and ostricized him. He remains to declare himself a republican mainly due to being a republican has become a hard-to-shake-off habit . The reality is he is either a progressive or a Democrat, or both, who simply can’t force himmself to come out as either.
Partisanship is nowhere in his DNA, he has no problem calling out either party when he sees a real problem, or true failings. When he speaks about the addiction of both parties to special interest money and influence, I can see Dylan Rattigan on one of his rants. Buddy is for real, and the only place he can get any respect or exposure is on MSNBC. The biased networks won’t have him, he’s much too sensible to make good TV. He speaks about the issues; how money has corrupted the congress and all of our government, he speaks about why positive change can’t come about and the reasons why, he speaks about income inequality, not the GOPnutz talking points.
Buddy Roemer is one of the best hidden gems in the GOP, and one of their best kept secrets as a presidential candidate. I actually lived through a Buddy Roemer governorship when I lived in La. and as I recall he was a damn good governor. He lost his bid for re-election mainly because he was outbid by the big-money candidate, because he wasn’t conservative (corruptable) enough for the special interest money.If we ever have to have a republican president again, “The Buddy Plan” wouldn’t be a horrible thing, at least not as horrible as one of the candidates in the current “Clown Crew”.
It has come to my attention that someone, or some “ones” have been bad-mouthing me. If this true I welcome it, it can only mean one thing, I am having an affect on at least one person. If I am having an affect on someone, then that amounts to extra gravy on my rice. My main purpose for writing is to relieve my self of the anger and frustration I feel when I hear what the GOP extremist, and sadistic party is doing to destroy democracy and bring this country to it’s knees under a tyrannic oligarchy.
The republican presidential “field of delusion” have shown themselves to be qualified to lead a criminal motorcycle gang, a white-collar criminal organization, an extremely subversive white supremacist group, or some religious dominionist group. But, lead the country? Not a chance in hell ! The only place they can lead the country is on a downward spiral, wich is the swishing sound you hear in the background whenever they speak. They are all delusional lunatics, out to destroy the very fabric of democracy for all, and to make it an oligarchy, giving the country to a “ruling class“, theirclass, of those who hold the money and power and nothing more. They want US (the99%) to be subject to only what they (the1%) want, and only to their need to increase their wealth and power.
The one only thing they are committed to are the “super PACs” . And those who fund the superPACs, and their elections and supplement their personal incomes on the sly. Elections no longer reflect the needs and desires of the people, our elections have become auctions where only the highest bidder wins, and the American people are always the biggest loser.
However, the elephant in the room is this; The tea-party was born from and arose to prominence when those on the right and especially the extreme right had a complete mental and emotional break down because someone who should be in their view, a slave owned by them or their ancestors. How could this happen in their USA? It was such a shock to their beliefs and view of what america was supposed to be, that they became all-consumed with their hatred, their bigotry, their racism, and their need to remove this “black guy” from THEIRwhite house , that they are now in a mindless panic.
Every day we see the attack on voter rights, women’s rights, and the attacks on organized labor. They wnat to destroy the social safety nets that the poor, the elderly, and the infirm rely for mere survival. They try to defund and dismantle the educational system so, through attrition they can cultivate a poor, ignorant and gullible base that will be pliable and easy to manipulate through their lies and propaganda. We must remain mindful of this and fight back, we can not allow them to do this to us.

The vilest member of Congress, Majority LeaderEric Cantor —
a sniffy, condescending puke with a brick where his heart should be —
has apparently said that the GOP will not even let the jobs bill come
to a vote on the floor of the House because, you know, they didn’t REALLY
promise to create jobs last year when that was virtually all they campaigned on.
I guess their fingers were crossed.
That’s right. It’s not enough for these huge-government/let-government-dictate-
your-every-health-care-move-if-you-are-a-woman types that NO tax money is being
used to fund abortions. They want to punish any hospital that may get federal money
for something entirely unrelated if they perform an abortion to SAVE A MOTHER’S LIFE.
Seriously — you have an ectopic pregnancy? Too bad. We’re back to the savage laws of
pre-modern nature. You die, just as if no medical treatment existed. It does,
but these people want to pretend we are a primitive, undeveloped country.
What’s more hilarious is that they dubbed this bill — H.R. 358 — the “Protect Life Act.”
They should call it the “Punish the Slut Act,” because really, isn’t that what this is about? Whose “life” is protected by denying a woman with an ectopic pregnancy an abortion? That doesn’t matter to people like Cantor who feel they should be the ones to make the most intimate
decisions for women.
If these people were truly concerned about “life,” they would have passed the jobs bill,
creating nearly two million jobs — many for parents desperately trying to feed their kids.
But they aren’t. Fetuses are useful tools to them, something they can use to keep women down.
Actual living, breathing children they don’t care about so much.
My hopes are for the latter. We were all hoping for “The One” when obama emerged on the scene, but he has shown himself , continually from the very beginning, not to be the man we all hoped for, and thoughthim tobe.
Is he truly a progressive? His history says differently. The GOP has always been the winner in every negotiation, every deal. The only issue he can claim any victory on is the health-care -reform, and even in that he threw in the towel without any effort whatsoever concerning the “public option“, or “single payer” or “medicare for all“; none of these issues ever got past the discussion stage. The stimulus package; was much too small to begin with, was held hostage until he caved so HALF of that could be wrangled by the GOP into tax cuts. He has no apparent negotiating skills,very little foresight, and worst he maintains the delusion of bipartisanship and cooperation from the GOP, wich by the way is a subsidiary of the Koch bros. who also own, fund, and manage the tea-party.
Progressive? NO, more moderate republican by definition , than a Democrat. Please dont mis-understand. This post is not an anti-Obama message, the point is: he truly doesn’t deserve an enthusiastic vote, but we must give him our vote if he is the only choice available at the time. Unless, of course, there is a truly progressive candidate, with a fair chance of winning in the primary and a better than fair chance of winning in the general election. GIVE US YOUR OPINION.
