Democrat Voters are Among the Most Gullible
People on Earth

The primary reason the United States finds itself in its current predicament is the vast number of credulous and mis-educated Americans who, over the past two decades, have blindly pledged their undying allegiance to the current iteration of Democrat party. They do so because they have been willingly duped into believing that the political opposition, conservatives and Republicans, are the personification of evil who are hellbent on transforming the nation into a dystopian nightmare. The philosophical underpinnings of the Democrat party or the falsehoods its elected members regurgitate are immaterial to their voters, as long as this dire threat, as personified by Donald Trump in 2020, is vanquished

I suspect that the degree of "gullibility" is a function of how much free stuff is promised.

I have more than my quota of "yellow dog" dims in my family and have noted that they are commited to the party as fans are to their sports teams. "Just win, baby!". They are anti- abortion,illegal immigration, affirmatve action, woke, CRT... but will overlook their distaste because they have to support their team over their rivals. A few are down right bigoted but will "vote 'er straight" (as Mr. Sam would say) dim no matter who is on the ballot. I seem to recall Carville saying democrats are like cattle and will follow you anywhere as long as you keep throwing out feed.

One of the best descriptions of the differences between fascism and Marxism and our fascist leanings. A must read in my opinion. They fall for the promise of statism because it promotes what people wish to be true and denies that which is true when they'd rather it not be so. I can have my fun and screw my brains out because killing babies is not murder. I don't have to work because my neighbors will support me at ever increasing levels without curtailing their own output. I can increase corporate taxes without the cost being passed on to consumers.

The level of arrogance in so many demosluts makes it hard for them to see just how wrong they are about almost everything. They are in a constant state of denial when things don't go their way. They feel so superior to Republicans and Conservatives that even when evidence of their beliefs are proven wrong over and over again, they believe it didn't work because not enough money was spent, or it wasn't given enough time to pan out.

They are not gullible; they are irrational. Reason is an core Enlightenment value. The Democrat Party killed our Enlightenment civilization and replaced it with a pseudo religion operationalized by hate and envy. The Democrat Party has given us the Age of Propaganda. Consequently, you can demonstrate daily why nothing they say or do makes sense, but that doesn't bother them in the least. Or slow them . . . All that matters is adherence to their sexually libertine, big government ideology. You're either with them or against them. And if you are against them, they will stop at nothing to destroy you. I give Youngkin 60 days before the national media and intelligence industries have gen'd up a whole basket of "scandals" to take him down.

I would like to thank the author for accurately calling it the DEMOCRAT party instead of the false "democratic" party. It is a big pet peeve of mine. I remember the media hounding GWBush about it, and of course, he caved. The dem voters are unbelievably ignorant, and some are very arrogant in their ignorance. We can thank the media for selective and biased reporting.

Part of that commitment to the democrat party is based on the democrats desire for continued increase in the size and scope of government, which means more government employees and an increase in their salaries, pensions and benefits. They vote to maintain this regardless of their own personal ideas and thoughts. I saw this with my BIL who is staunch conservative, but had to vote for his livelihood first as he was in the union. He's now retired (under 60), with a pension of 75% of his last, and highest pay period. Now, working another job making even more money. Same can be said for those who are receiving the benefits of a government program, they will vote to maintain that benefit. Couple all that with the media in the bag for democrats, and you get a whole group of people who don't know a lot of what's happening simply because they are hearing, or reading, things because the media has chosen to not report on it.

Gullible and ignorant. It still amazes me that a majority of blacks vote for the very party which enslaved their ancestors. They have no clue that the Republican Party was founded to end slavery or that Lincoln was the first Republican President. They don’t know that every slaveholder was a demonrat, that the KKK was founded by demonrats or that it was demonrats who filibustered the civil rights acts of the 60’s, stood in the school house doors to keep blacks out and manned the fire hoses and dogs which were set on the people who marched with MLK.

1. Democratic voters adhere to tradition: they have always voted Democratic. 2. Democratic voters have no memory. They do not remember the promises made and not kept in the previous electiion cycle. 3. Democrats have very good propaganda machinery. Like the New Yorker. Or the New York Times. Or the entire MSM apparatus. 4. Democrats stick to the surface, and do not pay attention to details. 5. You can fool all the people all the time, or at least enough of them to win elections.

I wore MAGA gear throughout PDJT's term, only to be sneered at by smug DRAT voters—irrespective of whatever benefits the president was providing. Then after China-Jobiden & Co. stole the election and proceeded to destroy our nation, nothing he did bothered them in the least: the border mayhem, the pipeline mess et al. They even made nasty comments about my "Buck Fiden" shirt and hat, at least until he pulled our troops out of Afghanistan, leaving all those KIAs and equipment, along with all those others wanting out. Sure, his voters are gullible. But he (they) are criminal traitors who should never have taken "office," and should be removed. No time is too soon.

They're never right but always certain. But this is the end result for people who were indoctrinated within the public school system and were not fortunate enough to have parents who could help them unlearn what they were being taught. The silver lining of the plandemic is that parents were at home with their kids and were appropriately appalled at what they were learning. If it wasn't for the CCP virus parents would still be in the dark.

#17, you can recite that history until you're blue in the face but it impresses few black people. IMO the reasons for that are two-fold: - JFK read the tea leaves early, met with MLK, and pushed for passage of a civil rights bill which LBJ signed into law. Meanwhile, GOP nominee Goldwater (in his legalistic myopia) opposed the 1963 civil rights bill, and the national Republican party remained cool to the entire idea. They never grasped the moment. The Dems beat 'em to the punch. The fact that more congressional Republicans than Democrats voted to enact the civil rights bill is virtually unknown and completely irrelevant from a political standpoint. - Since that time the Democrats have staked out ground as the PROTECTORS of black peoples' hard won civil rights. The relentless pandering and fear mongering we see today remind black people of that perceived PROTECTIVE function. For the large majority that is Numero Uno, and contemporary issues become secondary. After signing the 1964 Civil Rights Act into law, LBJ boasted to his staff that "We've just locked up the [bleep] vote for the next two hundred years." Well, 60 years in his prediction still holds.

As vote counts continue to be posted, it is clear that Republican hopes and dreams of a huge wave election have been dashed. (snip) But in one state, Florida, Republicans have triumphed in tsunami-like proportions. With 98% of the vote counted, Marco Rubio has a 16.4% landslide lead over Senate challenger Val Demings, and Governor Ron DeSantis has a 19.4% lead, a gigantic increase over his fraction of one percent squeaker victory 4 years ago. It’s going to take some time to figure out why the rest of the country isn’t behaving like the Sunshine State, but 3 factors suggest themselves.

Ron DeSantis is getting the lion’s share of national attention for his sweeping victory...adding almost 20 points to his margin of victory in 2018, when he barely won the governorship. Among his pillars of support was his strong opposition to COVID shutdowns of businesses and schools and his opposition to vaccine mandates. But 2 other statewide races on Tuesday featured incumbent candidates who vigorously fought against COVID shutdowns and mandatory vaccines. And in both races the incumbents won victories with even bigger margins than DeSantis. In Kentucky, with 87% of the vote counted, Rand Paul is winning re-election to the Senate with a 22.8% margin)

Wokism for dummies! Researchers claim
CPR mannequins aren't diverse enough -

Posted by AltaD 11/21/2022 2:06:26 PM Post Reply
Mannequins used to practice life-saving CPR aren't diverse enough, doctors have claimed. Researchers want to ditch the reliance on default 'lean white male' models. Doing so will help overcome 'bias' among bystanders and help improve the survival of other groups, they say. This, the team claim, would be done by 'changing the perception of sudden cardiac death' — meaning people recognise it doesn't just happen to white men. Academics from Canada and Argentina found fewer than 10 per cent of mannequins used to promote CPR on social media represented black or Asian people. None were of pregnant women and barely any were of fat people, according to the study.
