The GOP's quest for a one-party, authoritarian government is starting to become more obvious...
Republicans are very serious about “leading,” that is, taking control of everything despite public opinion or the existence of the Democratic Party.
Gov. Scott Walker ignored hundreds of thousands of protesters and will only run for president if the U.S. Senate flips Republican. He doesn't want a dissenting party getting in the way of his agenda. Ideological purity and principles must be maintained.
The same goes for impeaching Obama for doing what presidents do, basically. Now state GOP politicians want to try impeaching their Democratic governors. While Democrats long for a multiparty government, Republicans see only one party:Meanwhile, Democrats are trapped in their own fantasy world, where they continue to miss the GOP's clear one-party message. Liberals cling to the hope Republicans will work with them and come to their senses...blah, blah, blah.
MSNBC: Missouri GOP lawmakers’ recent efforts: voting restrictions, nullification efforts, anti-union schemes, anti-evolution measures, an anti-health care push, and on and on … these efforts have fallen short, thanks in part to Missouri’s Democratic governor, Jay Nixon.
Missouri’s GOP lawmakers have responded to the governor’s objections to their agenda by raising the specter of impeachment … Republicans say (Nixon) has committed offenses worthy of being removed from office. The rationale … Reid Wilson’s report highlights the case against Nixon:One legislator has lodged a complaint over Nixon’s executive order last year that directed state tax officials to accept joint tax returns from same-sex couples who were legally married in other states.
Another legislator said Nixon hadn’t moved fast enough to call special elections in three state House districts and a Senate district left vacant by resignations.
And a third legislator says Nixon deserves the boot for insufficiently punishing officials at the state Department of Public Safety for releasing a database of Missourians with permits to carry concealed weapons.
You say Democrats long for a multiparty government. Which Democratic candidates have withdrawn from races to insure that a Republican or independent is elected to maintain a multi party balance? Can you give examples where a Democrat politician has campaigned against other Democrats to help a Republican or other party candidate win an election over a Democratic challenger?ReplyDelete
Silly what ifs.ReplyDelete
I'll take that as a no.ReplyDelete
You're so smart, and yet you use silly imaginary scenarios that would force one party to lose.ReplyDelete
You see, it's what you stand for, get it? Didn't think so.
I am not so stupid as to think Democrats are in favor of a two party system. If they could, the Democrats would want to win every election and have total control of the White House, Senate, and House of Reps. Of course Republicans want to see their party win every election - you would have to be a pretty sorry group to not think you should win every election. I was just pointing out the stupidity in your posting that Democrats are in favor of multi party government.ReplyDelete
