Self-loathing Republicans



POLL: 25 Percent of Republicans Don't Like the GOP

July 7, 2014, 11:24 am

A new Associated Press poll reveals that 25 percent of Republicans and 13 percent of Democrats dislike their own party. But despite negative attitudes, most voters do align themselves with one of the two political parties.
According to the online survey of 1,354 adults, 6 out of 10 Americans pledge allegiance to either party, with that majority rising to 8 out of 10 factoring in poll-takers who say they "lean" Republican or Democrat.
"Yet both Democrats and Republicans inspire unfavorable views by a majority of Americans, including one-quarter who say they dislike both of them," writes the AP's Jennifer Agiesta. "About a third go so far as to say they distrust both parties to handle some of the most basic functions of government: 35 percent trust neither party to handle the federal budget, and 34 percent trust neither Democrats nor Republicans to manage the federal government or address the concerns of 'people like me.'"
Rather than defecting, party loyalists stay put, with about 4 out of 10 saying they like their party's policies in general and have long identified as Republicans or Democrats. Around 1/3 of Republicans and 1/4 of Democrats say they don't completely support what their parties stand for while a small percentage of poll-takers chalk up their party affiliation to distaste for the alternative.
The poll also evaluated how Democrats and Republicans view one another as the American political climate grows more polarized. Of those surveyed, 22 percent think "conservative" when they think Republican with 24 percent pinning a "liberal" label on Democrats. Moreover, 21 percent assume Republicans to be pro-business and supportive of the wealthy.
A one of the respondants, a self-professed Democrat, said she thinks her party cares "about the underdog more than those in the upper socio-economic classes."
Last month the Pew Research Center released the eye-popping results of a year-long polarization study that surveyed 10,000 Americans on their political views. It discovered a greater ideological distance between Republicans and Democrats than in years past and also found an increase in the number of people expressing partisan antipathy.

  3. Recently, you put up a video of Gov. Long. He reminded me of Gov. Wallace, who saw not a dime's worth of difference in the two parties. A day or so ago, Rufus addressed, in passing, Feudalism. While I see no meaningful likeness in Feudalism and Libertarianism (and I may have misunderstood Rufus's meaning), the two parties do remind of Feudalism. In order to protect their fee, they were willing to play the game of Henry IV (Paris is worth a mass). But, then as now, no one is fooled.

      This will not explain Rufus's claim of a political link between Libertarianism and Feudalism but it may carry the propostition some distance. The distribution of wealth among the world elite strongly suggests a system along feudal lines. There need be no consolidating monarchial claims for Feudalism to thrive, although the recognition of the right of land tenure by aristocrats was essential in an early time; even if feudatories battled for the dominance of one bloodline over another. For centuries in the West, the Church served as the focal point around which lords and ladies, society in general, revolved.

      If the case for modern Feudalism can be made, what are its ranks and how does one become initiated? Furthermore, is there a single institution having sufficient moral authority to hold the system together?

The battles among houses and the rise and fall of kings were woven into the cultural fabric of England and formed an integral part of the country’s patriotic legends and national mythology. One might compare this knowledge to the American public’s general awareness of the events and figures surrounding the American Revolution, which occurred more than two centuries ago."

  23. FOR FARMER BOB (http://300stories.wordpress.com/) :

    His Sherpa shook his hand and congratulated him.

    Nothing left to achieve. No more goals to reach. He had done it all. Every mountain worth mentioning had now been scaled by him.

    It had taken him just a year to do so. It was a folly, they had said when he’d laid out his plans. It could not be accomplished, they had warned. Yet he had proven them wrong, here, on top of the world.

    There’s a storm coming in, his Sherpa said. If we want to make it to base camp we have little time to waste.

    There was something to be said about that. Achieve your goal and then walk away. But why then was he not moving? Why was he staring at the brewing storm approaching?

    He had not known about the particulars of clouds before he started his endeavour. But now he was a bit of an expert. You’d have to be, when you’re all alone, 20,000 feet high, your survival depending on how well you read the signs of impending weather.

    Sir, we have to go, his Sherpa warned.

    He wasn’t joking. The clouds were aligning for one massive storm. The kind you read about in adventure stories. The kind they write epic poems about if you dare to face it and come out alive.

    They’ll call him mad if he does this. They’ll say it can’t be accomplished. But it is comforting to know that even when you’re on top of the world, there are always new goals on the horizon.

    Sir, his Sherpa implored again.

    No, he said, removing his backpack and facing the incoming storm head-on.

    It doesn’t end here.

    This is just the beginning.

    New research suggests that despite urban legends such as people are liberal in their youth and grow more conservative as they age or urban truths such as Hispanics currently favor the Dems, there may be a more telling stat moving people to become either liberal or conservative and that is who is running the country when they become most politically aware.

    This could mean the Obama Effect (i.e. how he is viewed by millennials) could affect politics well into the future.

    Academic research has found that generations do indeed have ideological identities. People are particularly shaped by events as they first become aware of the world, starting as young as 10 years old, as a new analysis by the political scientists Yair Ghitza and Andrew Gelman notes. (My colleague Amanda Cox has created an online interactive graphic, based on the analysis, that lets you track the political views of every birth year since 1937. Because race adds a variable, it applies most reliably to whites.)

    The generation that came of age during the five presidential terms of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman leaned Democratic for its entire life. So have those young liberals of the 1960s, who learned American politics through the glamour of John F. Kennedy. The babies of the late 1960s and early 1970s, who entered political consciousness during the Reagan years, lean Republican. Think Alex P. Keaton, the conservative child of hippies from the 1980s sitcom “Family Ties.”

    Is Obama the 'worst president ever' or just so in generational terms? Will Obama become the Dems worst nightmare 20 or 30 years down the road?

    Well, let's not get carried away with optimism.

  32. Consider the latest leak sourced to Edward Snowden from the perspective of his detractors. The National Security Agency's defenders would have us believe that Snowden is a thief and a criminal at best, and perhaps a traitorous Russian spy. In their telling, the NSA carries out its mission lawfully, honorably, and without unduly compromising the privacy of innocents. For that reason, they regard Snowden's actions as a wrongheaded slur campaign premised on lies and exaggerations.

    But their narrative now contradicts itself. The Washington Post's latest article drawing on Snowden's leaked cache of documents includes files "described as useless by the analysts but nonetheless retained" that "tell stories of love and heartbreak, illicit sexual liaisons, mental-health crises, political and religious conversions, financial anxieties and disappointed hopes. The daily lives of more than 10,000 account holders who were not targeted are catalogued and recorded nevertheless."

    The article goes on to describe how exactly the privacy of these innocents was violated. The NSA collected "medical records sent from one family member to another, résumés from job hunters and academic transcripts of schoolchildren. In one photo, a young girl in religious dress beams at a camera outside a mosque. Scores of pictures show infants and toddlers in bathtubs, on swings, sprawled on their backs and kissed by their mothers. In some photos, men show off their physiques. In others, women model lingerie, leaning suggestively into a webcam ..."

    Have you ever emailed a photograph of your child in the bathtub, or yourself flexing for the camera or modeling lingerie? If so, it could be your photo in the Washington Post newsroom right now, where it may or may not be secure going forward. In one case, a woman whose private communications were collected by the NSA found herself contacted by a reporter who'd read her correspondence.

  33. Behind the Protests in Caracas: Venezuela Rising

    Earlier this year, VICE News headed to Venezuela's capital of Caracas to cover protests that started in the provinces before engulfing the city. What began as a student movement inspired by the scarcity of basic goods and an exploding crime rate — the UN has classified Venezuela as the world's murder capital, war zones excluded — had snowballed into mass anti-government riots.

    Angry at the perceived shortcomings of President Nicolás Maduro, who replaced the charismatic Hugo Chavez a year before, thousands of mostly middle-class protesters took to the streets, tearing the city apart during pitched battles with Caracas's brutal semi-militarized police force. Protesters also had to contend with collectivos, quasi-governmental biker gangs accused of spreading insecurity and discontent to keep Venezuela's population frightened and indoors.

    VICE News released six dispatches from the ground and live streamed from Altamira Square, the heart of the city's unrest. In Venezuela Rising, we explain the story behind the protests, linking up with rioters, government supporters, activists, and victims of Caracas's intolerable crime wave. In an exclusive interview, we also speak to Henrique Capriles, the leader of the political opposition.

    At least 43 people have died since the protests in Caracas began, and thousands more have been injured and arrested. In Venezuela Rising, VICE News finds out why.

      If you don't know what you are speaking of, Bob, you should be quiet

      Mexico's dysfunctional legal system
      Unlike the U.S., Mexico's legal system has no jury trials. In the majority of cases, there are also no oral arguments, meaning lawyers don't stand in front of a judge to plead their client's case. Judges usually never meet the accused. Everything is done via paperwork. Judges are subject to a Napoleonic code of justice, meaning laws are strictly codified, leaving them little room for judgment.

      But what is so humorous, in regards Bob's ignorance ...

      ... the Egyptian Civil Code of 1810 that developed in the early 19th century—which remains in force in Egypt is the basis for the civil law in many countries of the Arab world where the civil law is used— is based on the Napoleonic Code,

      The countries that have not 'modernized' are governed by the Napoleonic Code ...

      To communicate anything to a Goy about our religious relations would be equal to the killing of all Jews, for if the Goyim knew what we teach about them, they would kill us openly.

      Libbre David 37

      A Jew should and must make a false oath when the Goyim asks if our books contain anything against them.

      Tosefta, Tractate Erubin VIII

      When a Jew has a Gentile in his clutches, another Jew may go to the same Gentile, lend him money and in turn deceive him, so that the Gentile shall be ruined. For the property of a Gentile, according to our law, belongs to no one, and the first Jew that passes has full right to seize it.

    The Little Sisters of the Poor have now been inducted into NOW's 'Dirty 100'.

    I expect they should prepare for a big jump in donations.


    As part of its full-throated defense of ObamaCare's contraception mandate, NOW has a list of what it calls "The Dirty 100" — entities that have sued the Department of Health and Human Services and demanded exemptions on the basis of their First Amendment right to religious expression and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties, the two firms that won the Hobby Lobby case last week, occupy two spots on the list, as does Wheaton College, which won a controversial injunction against HHS later in the week.

    Almost square in the middle of the list, though, are the Little Sisters of the Poor.

    Who are the Little Sisters of the Poor? They are Catholic nuns, operating as a charitable organization on behalf of their community. The application of the HHS contraception mandate to practicing Catholic nuns who take vows of chastity is one of the biggest absurdities of HHS' mandate enforcement anyway. Obviously, nuns aren't clamoring for free IUDs and Plan B.

    It's true that churches and closely related organizations do not have to comply with the mandate, but there's a big catch, and one that provides another level of absurdity. HHS requires that any such group primarily employ and serve only members of their own faith. The Little Sisters, who provide hospice care to impoverished people about to die, do not restrict their service to just Catholics. In other words, HHS demands compliance in the case of these "dirty" nuns because they refuse to discriminate in serving the needs of the poor.

      Finally, in Shabtai Tzvi, Labor Zionism and the Holocaust, which was published also by Modiin, Barry Chamish writes (on pg. 232) that, about a year before he became Prime Minister of Israel, Ariel Sharon said that had Jabotinsky been head of the Jewish Agency instead of Ben-Gurion, millions of Jews would have been saved from the Holocaust.

      Perfidy, The Transfer Agreement, and The Scared And The Doomed are accurate books (which were created by Jewish people, not anti-Semite bigots) that detail how Labor Zionism prevented the rescue of European Jewry.

    BOISE - Idaho has the worst wages in the nation.

    The Famous Potatoes state ranks 50th for average annual wage, per-capita income, and for wage increases since 2007.
    It also has the greatest percentage of minimum-wage workers in America.

    After hearing those figures Thursday as they reviewed Idaho’s economic outlook, state legislative leaders said it’s time to figure out how to reverse that “dubious distinction” for the state.

    “I don’t think anybody’s proud of that No. 1,” said House Speaker Scott Bedke, R-Oakley. He quizzed the state’s new Labor director, Ken Edmunds, about why the state ranks so poorly. “We need to understand, I think, as a state this phenomenon here, so that we can address this as we shape policy to improve these numbers,” Bedke said.
