Why Vote Republican?

Original Article

Posted By: zephyrgirl, 8/16/2021 9:56:33 AM

Frustration over the mostly feckless national Republican Party is nothing new. Those of us on the political right have few electoral options given our two-party system. In some elections, the choice is stark and easy, as when Reagan or Trump were at the top of the ticket. Other years saw names like McCain or Romney on the ticket and many of us held our noses voting Republican only because it was the better of two lousy choices. The leftist agenda moves forward regardless of who is elected, at the presidential or congressional level, the only difference being the speed of decline.


This is the very question I've been asking since the first two years of the Trump Administration. Trump had to fight not only the Dems, but the GOPe as well.

I vote Republican and will continue to do so. This line of argument is tiresome and pointless. I'm proud of each candidate I've supported and always look for more outside my state to support. None of the names listed in the article are in my area. States are fighting battles to curtail election fraud. Do I wish they had been stronger in 2020? No doubt. But if you give up the fight and stop voting, you are part of the problem. You that stayed home rather than support the admittedly lame Republican candidates in McCain and Romney gifted the country with Obama. Be part of a solution instead of whining about lousy Republicans. There's good ones too and it's unfair to lump them all together.

Yikes! He's right about a lot of things. There may be a slight glimmer of hope in that NYC is voting in a law and order guy and California may elect a conservative Republican. My Dad was a disabled WWII Vet. I'm glad he's not around to see what he fought for. I feel sorry for all the Vets and their families who served in Af-gone-istan.

I have a question. Is Covid in Af-gone-istan. I noticed no one wearing masks. I'm not saying this as a joke. I'd like to know if Covid spread to there.

After this election, I'll continue to vote but only for the person I know that can get the job done and that's me. Call it a protest vote or whatever, I don't give a damn anymore. The spineless pubbies have lost me completely.

Note to everyone - Calif is a permanent shade of blue with elections being largely irrelevant. The governor is under recall but will win by mail-in voter fraud and the legislature has a permanent super majority. The CA GOP is non-existent. As CA goes so goes the rest of the nation.

Why vote Republican? Ask myself that all the time. Bad feeling this country has reached a point of no return. It cannot be turned around. It cannot be fixed. If that's the case, why should I care who gets elected? The Democrats want to rule. Not sure what the Republicans are doing. Enriching themselves?

The Tea Party was America's last gasp. It's clear now that Trump was an echo, allowed to enter the stage for a short time because the government-media complex believed their own propaganda. But they took care of that in short order. Anything short of a solution to our march to totalitarian, tribal Marxism facilitated by the national intelligence star chamber is a waste of bandwidth. It's like watching everyone debate the cause of a forest fire that's still raging, rather than fight the forest fire.

I sent this to and will send it to the other GOP organizations that keep asking for my money, with the admonition that they need drastic, real and convincing change from the top down, not the usual lip service. They will pay no attention to me, but maybe if they hear from a LOT of people with the same message...

The media doesn't cover anything the Republicans do unless it involves them going along with the demosluts. Therefore, even if the Republicans were doing something to counter the demosluts while holding no positions of power, the media wouldn't cover it. Opposition doesn't exist if no one reports on it.

Voting? What makes anyone think that we'll ever have a valid election in this country as long as the Dems are in power? How does it feel to know that despite every get-out-the-vote effort, there are leftist allies and affiliates who will work to manufacture fake votes to nullify yours? No sane and respectable person would want to take on the effort to run against the GOPe maggots - people like Burr and Tillis here in NC. Who would want to put themselves and their families in that sort of jeopardy with unrelenting scrutiny and the pervasive use of social media to spread lies and distortions? Just take a look at America in 2021 and ask yourself, why is no - *NO ONE* - taking the fight to the leftists and their lackeys? Is it fear of jail for being a "domestic terrorist"? Or is it ridicule from family, friends, and neighbors for being conservative and bigoted and anti-something? I'll continue to vote but will exercise my own judgment as to what candidates and issues I support. Gone are the days for reflexively voting straight ticket Republican... greyseal

FTA: "Campaign donations are solicited with promises to reverse the leftist agenda, promises never kept, unlike the campaign contributions they collect." Exactly! I used to donate to the RNC. I quit doing that when I learned that our contributions were being used by Michael Steele to entertain "important clients" at strip bars. Never again! The Washington D.C. rot gets into every organization that's based there. DJT tried to do something about it, and the Swamp turned on him.

I don't vote Republican anymore. My congressman is a sniveling squish, and we have had two Democrap senators for as long as I remember. When the GOP refused to back their own President, it was the end for me. I have given these bums ridiculous amounts of money over the years, for nothing. Not one dime more. Reagan was my first Presidential vote. Before Trump, it was one globalist putz after another that I held my nose and voted for - except Romney - as I couldn't overcome the stink of that punk. Now, I will vote for Trump or DeSantis, and the rest of the party can go to hell.

Outgoing NY Governor Andrew Cuomo has been blasted by victims' groups for commuting the murder sentence of San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin's dad over an armored car robbery that killed three.

All five have murder convictions, with Gilbert - Boudin's father - the only killer still incarcerated with no possibility of parole over a deadly 1981 hold-up of a Brinks cash truck, that left a security guard and two cops dead.

The United States suffered through two lethal waves of contagion in the past year and a half. The first was a viral pandemic that killed about one in 500 Americans—typically, a person over 75 suffering from other serious conditions. The second, and far more catastrophic, was a moral panic that swept the nation’s guiding institutions. Instead of keeping calm and carrying on, the American elite flouted the norms of governance, journalism, academic freedom—and, worst of all, science. They misled the public about the origins of the virus and the true risk that it posed.

The U.S. Capitol Police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt on Jan. 6 during the insurrection was cleared Monday after an internal review concluded the action may have spared the lives of lawmakers and staffers who had barricaded themselves inside the building. "The officer’s actions were consistent with the officer’s training and (U.S. Capitol Police) policies," the agency's inquiry found. The agency declined to identify the officer. Federal prosecutors decided in April not to pursue criminal charges in the case. Some who supported the Capitol siege by rioters angry about the outcome of the presidential election cast Babbitt as a martyr to the conservative cause.

The majority of Americans no longer believe President Joe Biden is competent in his role as the Commander-in-Chief, according to a CBS News poll. Fifty-one percent of the respondents said Biden is not competent in his position as president. This is compared to only 49 percent who said he is. Additionally, the poll found that 52 percent of the respondents did not feel the president has been focused. The poll was taken during and after the fall of the now-Taliban-controlled Kabul, Afghanistan, when Biden botched the U.S. troops’ withdrawal from the country. With that, 53 percent of the respondents said they disagree with the way Biden withdrew the troops.

They are not,” Psaki said. “We are committed to bringing Americans who want to come home, home,” adding that the U.S. is in touch with Americans in Afghanistan by phone, email, and other communications. “‘There are no Americans stranded’ is the White House’s official position on what’s happening in Afghanistan right now?” Doocy countered.

President Joe Biden hailed the FDA's approval of the Pfizer vaccine as the 'moment you’ve all been waiting'–as he urged Americans who have been sitting on the fence to get their vaccine shots 'today' but dodged comment on Afghanistan. It was a welcome moment of good news for an administration battered by weeks of negative headlines, from spiking cases of COVID-19 to the collapse of the Afghan government and plunging poll numbers. And Biden, speaking at the White House, portrayed it as a huge victory even though it will be of limited practical value months after the vaccination received emergency approval.

Marines will lose their pensions, tuition assistance, and access to the G.I. bill, along with other military benefits, if they refuse the COVID-19 vaccination, according to internal emails reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon. An Aug. 18 email from Col. Teague Pastel, a commanding officer at the Marine Barracks in Washington, D.C., told colleagues that although "vaccines are still voluntary," the military believes "they will become mandatory in the near future." The penalties for refusing the coronavirus vaccination, Pastel wrote, should be in line with others for insubordination. Those penalties include "administration separation," a demerit in the Marine's personal file, as well as the forfeiture of various retirement and financial benefits.
