Ryan bites the dust

TeachTeach Senior MemberPosts: 18,428 Senior Member

It's RINO hunting season in Washington DC- - - - - -Now maybe McCain will croak, and McConnell will get the message as well.  Graham- - - - -who knows?  He's a dinosaur who is long overdue to become a barrel of crude oil.  There's a possibility some of these guys will get replaced by other swamp rats, but let's hope there are people out there who are actually more concerned with representing their constituents than getting reelected for decades.  Wasn't it Reagan who said politicians and diapers need to be changed regularly, and for the same reason?

    The rhinos have done everything to impede the president, they've done what they can to see the midterms are a democrat sweep, now they're going to hide and point to Trump's failed presidency a couple years down the road.

    Way past time for a lot of those fluffy floater poop stick RINOs to go the boneyard. They are WAY too buddy-buddy with the opposition when it comes to things that really matter. The gutless fools need to go. And the Democrats need to put some of their geriatric old fossils out to pasture, too. Most are suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia to one degree or another, anyway. Forming complete sentences is getting beyond some of them.

    I'm all for the rinos leaving town. I'm just worried on who gets elected to replace them. Even though they have done Trump wrong it can get worse.
  • tennmiketennmike Senior Member Posts: 27,395 Senior Member
    The electorate being the dumb anus bag of crap that it is, it could definitely get worse. The politicians got 'em slobbering like Pavlov's dog every time that jackhole politician promises them an iPhone in every hand and more benefits for doing nothing, and telling them that it's a right, to boot!

    No worries, he'll be fine. He accomplished the one thing he came to Washington to do, hand the oligarchs a trillion dollar tax break. Now he can be properly rewarded without having to worry about pesky ethics and corruption laws while his bank account compounds exponentially. 
    Yeah, I'm sure he'll get rich on 1.5% interest. I'm sure whatever his wealth level is he made it while in Congress. That being said, you're probably right about hem getting richer afterwards.

    You must be talking about the Omnibus bill, in which Schumer, Pelosi, Ryan and McConnell closed the deal behind closed doors, miraculously writing a 2000 page document that the entire Congress had 48 hours to read before voting on it.

    I'm sure every conservative think tank, news organization, big bank, etc will be lining up to give him a $200k thank you payment, I mean ask him to speak. If he clears less than $10 million in 2019 I'll be shocked. Not to mention a handful of board seats that come with high six figure salaries and no responsibility. 
    Not so much conservative think tanks. Ryan is generally a fiscal conservative, but he's weak on everything else.

    Alpha-- elites run the country. Liberal and conservative? They are the same team! All they do is create some sort of class warfare to make the masses think that there is some sort of difference and let the pukes fight among each other while they get rich.

    Yep.
    Ryan talks through his nose, Schumer looks over the top of his glasses.
  • Make_My_DayMake_My_Day Senior Member Posts: 7,670 Senior Member
    Ryan is a poster boy for the Haritage foundation and similar drivers of conservative policy. He may not be in lock step with Republican voters anymore, but he is in lock step with the elites behind the scenes who pull the strings of the party. He has served his purpose, now he can collect his reward.
    He may look like a conservative to you, but he for open borders, unfair trade deals for trades sake and a number of other non-conservative things. He and McConnell gave Schumer and Pelosi everything they wanted in the latest budget deal. He's a damn RINO.

    What becomes surreal as that such a majority of the people are swayed by these wedge issues literally to point of ignoring the total highjack of our democratic process.

    You still don't get that your party has no interest in any of those things. The Republican party and to a lesser degree the Democrats when they can get away with it serve the interest of the global elites and large multinational corporations. Open borders drive down labor costs, free trade is awesome for them, big government budgets mean big government contracts for beltway bandits and the defense Industrial complex. Everything Ryan did was in lock step with what the party wants. Everything was given approval by Heratige, freedom works, the American Enterprise Institute, etc.  Sure many of the voters didn't want those things, but since when do they matter? As long as you promise to defend the 2A and give lip service to a few other social wedge issues they'll continue to vote for you without question. I mean what are you going to do vote for a Democrat? lololololol!!!!
    Dude, you are already in full campaign mode? It's a little early to be going this hard, isn't it?

    You ignore the fact that, with all of its untold faults, the Republican Party is still the only participant in the federal government that even makes a show of allowing debate of the issues. It has a major conservative faction, a small but active contingent of outspoken liberals, and a huge contingent of milquetoast moderates who will simply go with the power. These factions, and some of the individuals, fight tooth and nail with each other to pass legislation in both houses of Congress. Republicans have a majority in both Houses, yet every bill is practically a fight to the death to get agreement.

    Conversely, the Democrat Party marches in total lockstep, with no debate, because any deviation from the party line is suicide. The nearest it has come to dissent within the ranks, in at least the last three decades, was an old commie challenging the anointed candidate in the 2016 election...all the while knowing that the fix was in and he never had a prayer.

    How does it feel to be one of not too many Democrats that actually know how corrupt their own party is, and having to go out and sell it, anyway, to all of the mindless minions, with absolutely no other weapon except vilifying the opposing candidates? Don't you ever wish that your party would actually have some goal that might actually benefit the majority of the country, instead of relying completely on lies and half-truths against the opposition? Wouldn't you be proud of just one dissenter to the party line, who would fight bravely against the party machine to clean it up?

    Sure, if you even bother to reply, you will say that both sides do it. Of course they do. But the difference is that there are factions and individuals in the Republican Party that actually still believe in the Constitution, and are still doing all they can to shine a bright light on the corruption. They have to overcome their own corrupt leadership, as well as every Democrat, and 95% of the media, to be heard, and sometimes they can't get re-elected because their party throws big bucks behind whoever runs against them. They can't get on any of the important committees because the leadership hates their guts. Many of them resign in disgust, after years of swimming upstream, but some hang on, because they are patriots.

    Imagine, if you can, what it would be like if both parties had all of these different ideas, and allowed them to be debated on the floor, before a vote. It would be exactly what the founding fathers envisioned, and similar to what made the country great.

    You're not telling me anything I don't already know. I am well aware of it, but that doesn't mean I have to like it, or go along with what the traitorous scum of our party does on a daily basis. I hate what these people do, and I spell it out on FB every day. I am as harsh with RINO Republicans as I am with Democrats on FB. I curse them out every day, so thank goodness there's no autocensor on FB. The only difference is I would have all democrat politicians hung for treason, but only about half of republicans. It's the reason why I won't vote for Rick Scott for senator this year. He screwed all Florida gun owners and I will be skipping the box next to his name this November. After the bill he signed on FL gun-control, I can no longer trust him if he becomes a US Senator. The republican party needs to learn that they can't keep screwing the voters and still win elections. This is being proven by the number of Republican Congress people that are no longer going to run again.

    I haven't heard of him. He's running against Scott in a primary? Doesn't matter, he won't beat Rick Scott, and if Scott doesn't get enough support from Republicans he will lose against Nelson. Either way, were stuck with Nelson, and I'm prepared for that.

    Edit to add: Never mind, I just looked him up. Running as a Demonrat, and Mayor of Miami.

    That's what I thought.  Gov. Scott was at his term limit anyway if he had finished the current term. I understand his running so he can go against Sen. Nelson.

    Yes, and if he had not signed that gun bill into law, I would be voting for him in November. It was a weak bill at best, but now I don't trust him to vote the right way when it comes to gun control on a national level.
