Whether you’re a Democrat who is pissed off at your own party for some stupid reason, or you’re an “independent” who wants to “send a message” to someone, somewhere, for some other stupid reason, this is what you’re voting for if you vote for ANY Republican:
- You favor cutting off unemployment benefits for the unemployed. As late as October 8, 2010, Senate Republicans – all of them – BLOCKED an extension of unemployment benefits in a recession in which unemployment is at a 26-year high of 9.8%. The reason many of them gave was that the $250 a week you were getting was going to make you want to become permanently unemployed.
- You favor a government that is absolutely unable to get anything done. The Republicans have promised nothing positive during the entire election season. Their only promise thus far has been to continue to block everything proposed by Democrats, and to hold hearings on everything they can possibly think of. If you loved a government paralyzed to near-inactivity because of endless investigations of a blowjob during a time of relatively good economic conditions, you’ll love the next two years. And let me ask you; if the reason you plan to vote for Republicans is because the Democrats haven’t gotten anything done, are you aware that Republicans in the Senate have blocked 375 bills passed by Democrats in the House with only 41 seats? What do you imagine will happen with a Republican majority in either the House or Senate or both? What do you imagine you’re “showing” anyone by voting for these idiots?
