“Rudy Bentz: I totally agree with your: "... Expose the fear tactics. Bring the light of truth to the blatant lies that are proffered by the selfish and self-centered." Yes, that is all what the Republicans are about.
VOTE: The NOers OUT.
VOTE: The DOERS IN. That's what your vote will do. Period.
REPUBLICANS only want to make Obama and the Democrats look bad. The do NOT want to give them credit for ANYTHING positve they are trying to do for the country. REPUBLICANS are spoil, mean bratty bullies...who will deny any progress to spite the other side. Is that having the country's best interest at heart or only theirs? The answer is too obvious.”

StellaRay on Sep 29, 2010 at 23:25:46

“Rudy, I couldn't agree with you more about GETTING OUT THE VOTE. Truth is, most dreary polls for democrats today are based on "likely voters." What they're telling us is that we, democrats, from center to progressive, are NOT likely voters. And I suggest we suck it up and admit this has not been our strong point in the past in mid terms, and get out there and PROVE THEM WRONG.

Really y'all, If I had a dollar for every post here about how clueless the GOP is, I'd never have to worry about having a job again. But I suggest, that we let the GOP deal with their own many problems, and that we deal with OUR problems, and fast! Our problem is that we pride ourselves on our inability to "lock step" to the point where we are an easy target. I say, let's challenge ourselves to "lock step" through the mid terms, AND THEN, continue the fight amongst ourselves. Because if we don't do that, all will be a mute point. We will have effectively silenced our own potential to live to fight another day.”

“It isn't even the Right, it's the *Statists* and they have infiltrated our government, judicial systems, Congress, Dems and Republicans, and lobbyists among others.
Picking the lessor of two evils is still choosing evil. Vote on principals and voting history!! If there are candidates out there who knew this mess was going to happen and publicly warned against its consequences and tried to stop it from passing in Congress, don't you think that person deserves a second look?

We all need to know for the elections: Voting in the primaries matters the most. And two, contact your get the option for paper ballots at EVERY polling place. It is the only way to publicly count every vote. I bet you a lot of people would choose paper form considering our distrust with corporations (Diebold). Contact your County Commissioner and make it happen!

It would have been nice to see the President using the same energy he uses in front of a crowd motivating his progressive base with the bully pulpit against the Blue Dogs. He would have no problem getting people out to support him. Now he's swimming upstream to counter his own creation as milk toast fighters giving in too soon against too harsh an opponent.”

“Painting all those that support either the Tea Party or Republican party in the light you describe is TOTALLY untrue. Gross generalizations like this are a grasp at justifying your position versus what reality is. How would it fit if the Tea Party and Republicans characterized all liberals as hate-mongering Communists only interested in robbing us of our liberties and stealing our money? Come on, man, get real. If you think all people with a diverging viewpoint are classified with the view you said ("utter ugliness, wickedness and outright inhumane agenda"), then your argument is completely nullified by your disingenuous, close-minded, broad stroke characterization.”

Expose the fear tactics. Bring the light of truth to the blatant lies that are proffered by the selfish and self-centered. Correct the slight-of-hand illusions presented by the self-appointed pundits and wanna-be politicians and get out the real vote: the humane vote that will realistically, pragmatically and wisely bring respect, sincere kindness and responsible regard to all.”

“You are correct. However, their leader, Rush Limbaugh announced shortly after the election that Obama is to "fail". At everything. How patriotic, right? Which is why a record number of filibusters and foot dragging has ensued on Capitol hill. Of course the right doen't announce to the public that they are slowing and blocking every bill, idea, appointment, etc. in an effort to grind the government to a halt. But they have effectively done just that. Great job guys! Way to run our government and ruin this country. Go against what your constituents want at every turn, and use scare tactics and patriotic imagery in every program on your fake news channel. Don't forget to throw in religious dogma for good measure!”
