[Now before I get jumped up and down upon let me say, my tongue is firmly in cheek and my snark is set to high]

We survived G W Bush [just I know, and we so nearly had a fully fledged financial meltdown] who also happened to be less popular than head lice by the end. G W Bush also represented what many pundits would like to believe is the sane wing of the Republican Party, terrorist attacks, war crimes, torture and financial collapse aside. You know, a traditional Republican, a compassionate inequality enhancing conservative with a neoconservative agenda as an undisclosed bonus.

"We" thought that might be the end of the Republican for quite some time if logic had anything to do with US politics, "we" were wrong as 2010 so proved. In 2011 if Romney hadn't be so obviously a lying nasty piece of work then Americans might well have voted him in because, you know; race [but shhhh post racial America and all that crap].

The MSM is so content in whining about bipartisanship and how the incapacity to get anything done is both sides fault and only if the would gather round the campfire and give everything to the rich and their corporations a golden age would dawn yada,yada.

When the rich throw temper tantrums and go all Godwin about the evils of fascist [and  there I was thinking it was communist] Democrats.

When talibangelical "Christians" scream about persecution and that  religious freedom means everyone should worship the one true god; theirs.

Where a party that embraces every conspiracy theory that suits [Birtherism], disbelieves in science, hates women's rights, hates immigrants of a certain color,  wants to suppress the vote based on skin color and income, and calls any policy slightly to the left of fascism communist stills gets elected, there is a possible solution.

Now many Americans still vote down party lines since that is what they have done for a long time without fear of something going horribly wrong, you know because both parties, stc, etc. Many Americans cannot even be bothered to exercise their right to vote.

OK, maybe it is time to show in black and white just how crazy the Republican Party has become and the only way to make this absolutely real is to vote them in on mass; then sit back and watch the world burn.

The Republican Party would not survive a Ted Cruz Presidency, the worry would be, would America survive? I think so, and this would finally put an end to any talk of conservative nirvana and how both sides do it yada, yada.

So you say you want a revolution, oh yeah, I know how to start one.

Vote not only Republican but vote for the most stellar conservative you can find.

Oh wait....

On second thought....

Dear goddess.....

I couldn't do it.

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
All right, all right

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  I've always been in favor of affirmative action (5+ / 0-)

    because I knew it wasn't meant to promote the incompetent. Affirmative action is required, if people are going to reject prejudices based on irrelevant superficialities and include people based on their talents and store of knowledge. Being "presentable" and knowing how to read bed-time stories are not sufficient to qualify a person for stewardship of the nation.

    If the spouse has one fault, it's that he bends over backwards to be supportive and understanding of people whom he perceives to be in need of significant help. I'm tempted to think that's a southern trait. It goes with a sense of snobbery and a bit of condescencion for people who are mentally or physically impaired. In the spouses case, it also went with a lot of forgiveness for a permanently drunk father who wasted his inheritance on crashing planes and sometimes cars. A generous heart makes them do it. Oh, and love of a good story.

    R. Ted Cruz (pronounced "our" Ted) has a good sob story abused immigrant childhood which he tells people for tea and sympathy and to make them think he's just as generous-hearted as they. IF THEY'LL JUST GIVE THE BOY A CHANCE.

    Americans love sob stories. For that matter, they like stories. I think it was a really bad idea to get rid of the "soaps." Now people have to get their daily fix from the politicians on FOX.

    bring the end of the Republican Party, but he's doing that anyway without being POTUS. And thank doG for that!
    Because you are probably also right that we might not survive a Cruz Presidency.
    A cathartic action that would wake up the sleepers and bring them out to expel the GOP, could also end up generating such chaos that we, the reasonable Left, would be slaughtered. Remember who has the most guns.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
