The national party known as the "Grand Old Party", aka Republican has become begun a precipitous turn into the abyss of becoming merely a regional party with its continued behavior toward the country at large. The party originally founded in 1854 with its base in the North East and Mid West and was created because anti-slavery opposition to the Kansas – Nebraska Act has transformed into a reactionary and corrupt party that is run by a country club set who use the ignorance of the uninformed and undereducated whites of the deep south and rural western mountain states. The GOP maintains control of these areas by the continue propaganda from Fox News and Druggy Limbaugh who seems to monopolize the radio air waves in these areas. The right wing nuts have forced out any other voices of reason or moderation.

. . . as it was a November day in 1963 in Dallas, Texas and the country was turned over to not only a man of evil, but an entire movement of evil that followed. The assassinations of JFK, RFK & MLK virtually murdered the soul of modern liberalism and gave rise to the modern conservative movement. I am writing this diary because I’ve seen other diaries that write about this post 1964 period but don’t understand the core events and problems which has caused us to wonder in the wilderness for so long.

Especially if you don't vote and continue to help out the campaign. I am confident of a win, but after reading some articles and remembering the exit polls of 2004 I have scarred myself into "This going to be a cliff hanger - Yikes". I have searched the internet for stories of an Obama defeat to counter the optimism of noise, because frankly no one likes a blow out, close games/elections are always more entertaining. Well if you want to have your stomach in knots and be nervous all day, than that's continue our journey to the unbelieveable horror that could happen today!

I am writing this diary to try to alleviate all the fear and paranoia associated with the typical neurotic democrat who is in total denial of a huge victory in the presidential election that hasn’t been seen since 1964.

The campaign has been long and hard fought on both sides, but Americans one by one are making up their minds as the day of reckoning approaches. Both campaigns have spun their take on the race with help from their surrogates. The Dems have MSNBC, Daily Kos, Stephanie Miller, Bill Press, Ed Shultz, Randi Rhodes and Huffington Post versus the Right wing noise machine of Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and Free Republic. Both sides are claiming they are head or closing on the polls, but the real truth can only be recognized by looking at the hard numbers.

and Sean Hannity is cumming down his leg . . . its only for one day and I suspect its a bad sample. Below is the Drudge Report Propoganda . . .

ZOGBY SATURDAY: McCain outpolled Obama 48% to 47% in Friday, one day, polling. He is beginning to cut into Obama's lead among independents, is now leading among blue collar voters, has strengthened his lead among investors and among men, and is walloping Obama among NASCAR voters. Joe the Plumber may get his license after all...

Every other poll has Obama pulling away . . .

I thought it would be a good time to look at the election from the perspective of the other side and look at Palin, Polls and the reasoning of some who think McCain will pull off a victory. I must tell you though on the last subject a lot of it sounds like the stuff in 1992 before Clinton won and some of it maybe the inability of some to accept the first black president.

I was watching Mr. Colin Powell as he harpooned the Republican smear machine on CNN. Mr. Colin Powell's discourse was similar to verbal thrashing that Joe McCarthy took from the Army attorney Joseph Welch that reverberates today.

"Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?"

I was inspired by Mr. Powell and infuriated when I read the story of Ohio GOP Senator's George Voinovich's smearing of Senator Obama as a socialist on Huffington Post and fired off an e-mail letter to my senator.

I was listening to the Jim Bohannon last Tuesday Night and he had on Allan Lichtman on his show. Yes, I know he is a righty, but I love to listen and blog the righties when they are in meltdown, sorry I am sick! Professor Lichtman of American University has authored a few books on elections, one of them being "The Thirteen Keys to the Presidency" and he gave his view of the election, to here the program click on the link below:

Why the heck is Sarah Palin getting a pass on troopergate?????? They continue to talk about Ayers!!!!!!! I don't get it, is Sarah providing "personal services" to the media?????? She is clearly guilty of an ethics violation and should be disqualified from running for Vice President. I guess the Republicans did a good job of releasing the report late enough of Friday to avoid the media spotlight, which will be back on the economy on Monday!

This is my first diary after spending the week on "Dkos" leaving snide remarks, zingers and few relevant comments. I am writing this to present my view of the state of the union of this great republic. In case, you've been hiding in a cave with Osama Bin Laden, the world financial markets have not declined this much since the great market panic of 1929 and you know what happen afterwards. The situation reminds me of the English nursery rhyme "Humpty Dumpty".

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty together again.

The financial crisis has not been tamed, controlled or alleviated and in fact it continues to get worst. It seems nothing we do has any positive effect and in fact leads to more panic and fear around the globe. Why is this happening to the global financial markets? And nothing seems to help?
