Words by Ralph Lombardi for Mitt Romney - to the tune of American the Beautiful.

They keep my dough so safe and sound.
And all untaxed by you!

This might have been America's worst presidential campaign.

You don't walk in the door, kick the dog, insult the wife, slap the kids and demote the husband and expect to win. Even if you're fabulously wealthy and represent all of Wall Street.

Diss'd Women

Diss'd Blacks

Diss'd Hispanics

Diss'd Gays

Diss'd the 47%

Diss'd the autoworkers

Diss'd the poor

.... gosh, what happened? All we gots is da rich white man over 65? How'd dat happen?

Note: All the cheesy advertising in the world won't change who you are. HEE! HEE!

LOL!

Not sure we really want to give this good advice to the GOP. I've gotten so accustomed to them being nitwits and religious extremists that if they stopped, they'd leave a huge void in the entertainment portion of political TV.
I also don't want to see them come to their senses. I'm really hoping they continue their inward and downward spiral to an implosion. The Democrats are the new moderates, and actual conservatives, there's no room for another party that actually cares about the population and it's financial and physical health and well being. We need a party of circus performers, sideshow freaks, and ringleaders like Rush. Otherwise the GOP base has to become normal and no longer paranoid and ranting about socialists and Muslims. Where would the fun be in that? Plus, like most Americans, we love a good train wreck.
We also have a reputation to uphold as a world leader in general population ignorance. We've cornered that market and are expected to be seen as over-indulgers and materialistic and just plain stupid. The joy shown by the rest of the world when Obama was elected the first time brought a tear to one's eye. The relief expressed around the world when Obama was re-elected was the icing on the cake that was this election cycle. We need the Republican party to continue on this course. they need to learn more than a few lessons about how badly they screwed us, on their own, by their own mistakes, and at their own expense.
The GOP and their ilk have cost this country dearly, and I think it's only fair they pay for it the hard way. They didn't give one crap about the citizens over the last four years. The House Republicans should be charged, tried, fined, fired, and hung out to dry. You suck House Republicans!
So yes, please continue on as the holier-than-thou party. Please continue to try and rule over women's reproductive rights. Please keep saying that being gay is a choice. Please continue to be the severely conservative, tin foil hat-wearing, party of the elitist, rich, white, male, God-fearing Grand Old Party, so that the sane, caring, Democratic moderates can continue lead and to look out for all of our best interests.

The federal government is usually the source of about 10 percent of local education dollars. The most well-known source of federal education dollars is Title I of the No Child Left Behind/Elementary and Secondary Education Act, which is slated for schools and districts with high percentages of poor children. The U.S. Department of Educationís Title I document offers more information on Title I funding. However, other major sources of federal education dollars include the Child Nutrition Act, which helps pay for school lunch programs, and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, which assists children with disabilitiesóboth of which actually provide a greater amount of revenue than Title I.

To all the teabag whiners..........HEED THE WARNING!

Heres a tip, stop watching FOX News as a single source of information!

Step 2: Dump Rush and Hannity for at least 6 months.(after all you are already facing 4 years of he.ll)

Step 3: Read news from multiple sources both conservative and liberal.

Step 4: Think for yourself.

Now, let the healing begin.

Carry on!!!!!!! LNAO!

What went wrong they ask. Limbaugh, Akin, Mourdock, Beck, etc. All of them insulted, belittled, and thoroughly alienated 60% of the voters. The religious fundamentalists are becoming a despised bunch of fools. Every time they open their mouth they effectively castrate the GOP. Pity it's only metaphorical. They sure are in a big hurry to make women second class citizens again. It's going to take at least 2-3 more generations to be educated in reality before I'll vote for any of them.

GOP defeated....
So what's next? Having now lost two presidential elections in a row, conventional wisdom says Republicans have two choices. The first is to admit that tea partyism has failed. 2012 was its best chance for victory, and evolving demographics will only make hardcore conservatism less and less popular. As South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has put it, "We're not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term." So the party will need to moderate or die.

The second option is to double down. Party activists will tell themselves that Mitt Romney was never a true conservative, and that's what voters sensed. But Republicans can win again in 2016 if they stay true to their principles, moving farther right and amping up the obstruction of all things Obama even more. In Congress, Paul Ryan will be their pied piper and Eric Cantor will be their enforcer.

So for now, at least, it seems probable that we're stuck with Option 2. Republican Party elders will probably try to be a little more careful about vetting candidates for political Tourette syndrome (no more "legitimate rape," please), but otherwise the tea party strain will remain ascendant even if the name itself is relegated to the ash heap of history. Republicans will continue to deny climate change, continue to insist that tax cuts pay for themselves, and continue to believe that Barack Obama is a socialist revolutionary. They will once again hold America's economy hostage over the debt ceiling and tax cuts for the rich, and they will continue to filibuster every single bill that Democrats introduce in the Senate.

Conservatives never forgive, they never forget, and they never learn. If they were not forever behind the curve, they wouldn't be conservtives.

He won't answer, big government types cannot grasp the concept of the United STATES of America, they think we live in the American Federation.

Federal power grabs started a long time ago, some say with Lincoln, and now we are blessed with the Leviathan known as the Federal government.

I see nullification to be more of a reality than succession - except for maybe Texas, I could see them pursuing that.

The Federal Government sucks money out of the states, then makes then beg for some of it back.

"succession" en masse

could be accomplished by simply filing an extension on your federal income taxes.

Perfectly legal and would send a message that we've had enough.

1% per month interest charge during the extension period (2012)

There is no clear answer to what's happening to us right now. Or how to solve it, no matter what any pundit or professor claims.

You can trust neither free enterprise nor government to carry out what is best and right for the people. Greed and corruption will always poison those intentions. Profits, the bottom line, a little 'added incentive' to fall in line with interested and powerful parties. To completely embrace idealism in either direction is naive, to think either the free market or elected officials will act to our benefit.

I had hoped that when the election ended, the hostility and aggression would end. Bonds would heal and we could work together to strive for progress and the betterment of our nation and humanity.

I was wrong, the enmity remains. The venom might even be more potent now; every side is going to up the ante, rev up their propaganda machines, demonize the opposing camps. And while some of what we see may just be the anger still waning in the wake of a divisive political campaign, I fear much of it may be etched here for a long time to come. People are proud and stubborn animals and we won't abandon our stances easily.

There remain competing factions warring over the hearts and minds of the people, tugging us in opposing directions. It's like a civil war, but not divided between state lines. Truth be told, it's not even just race, class, faith or gender.

I'd like to think we still have it in us to make amends and become unified again. But that particular brand of faith is starting to slip. I realize Topix isn't quite the place to go if you want to see the good in people, but it sadly appears to be a microcosm of what's around us in this heated, opinionated climate.

I'm not optimistic as I sit here. I wish I could be. But I feel like I've come to know mankind's vices, flaws and failings too well. And it unsettles me to think what may soon be afoot in the United States.
