We Demand A Do-Over!


Apparently some Brits are as ignorant of how elections work as the #NeverTrumpers:

Brexit protests: Hundreds to descend on Parliament to protest Britain’s decision to leave the EU

Hundreds of people have said that they will march on parliament in protest at the decision to leave the EU.

The organisers of an event due to take place at the Houses of Parliament on Saturday hope that the event can serve as a way of registering people’s anger about “a campaign and a result that has divided the country”.

“This referendum’s campaign descended into an absolute pantomime, and the result is terrifying,” the organisers write on Facebook, encouraging people to arrive at Parliament Square at noon.

They point out that many people didn’t understand the full implications of the vote and that the campaign wasn’t run to give them all the information that they need.

The Brits held a special kind of election called a “referendum.” That’s where people get to vote directly on an issue. That is as democratic as it gets.

The problem with democracy is sometimes the wrong people win. Voters are stupid, and they need someone wiser and better informed to step in and correct their mistakes.

Chaos syndrome is a chronic decline in the political system’s capacity for self-organization. It begins with the weakening of the institutions and brokers—political parties, career politicians, and congressional leaders and committees—that have historically held politicians accountable to one another and prevented everyone in the system from pursuing naked self-interest all the time. As these intermediaries’ influence fades, politicians, activists, and voters all become more individualistic and unaccountable. The system atomizes. Chaos becomes the new normal—both in campaigns and in the government itself.

Our intricate, informal system of political intermediation, which took many decades to build, did not commit suicide or die of old age; we reformed it to death. For decades, well-meaning political reformers have attacked intermediaries as corrupt, undemocratic, unnecessary, or (usually) all of the above. Americans have been busy demonizing and disempowering political professionals and parties, which is like spending decades abusing and attacking your own immune system. Eventually, you will get sick.

The disorder has other causes, too: developments such as ideological polarization, the rise of social media, and the radicalization of the Republican base. But chaos syndrome compounds the effects of those developments, by impeding the task of organizing to counteract them. Insurgencies in presidential races and on Capitol Hill are nothing new, and they are not necessarily bad, as long as the governing process can accommodate them. Years before the Senate had to cope with Ted Cruz, it had to cope with Jesse Helms. The difference is that Cruz shut down the government, which Helms could not have done had he even imagined trying.

Like many disorders, chaos syndrome is self-reinforcing. It causes governmental dysfunction, which fuels public anger, which incites political disruption, which causes yet more governmental dysfunction. Reversing the spiral will require understanding it. Consider, then, the etiology of a political disease: the immune system that defended the body politic for two centuries; the gradual dismantling of that immune system; the emergence of pathogens capable of exploiting the new vulnerability; the symptoms of the disorder; and, finally, its prognosis and treatment.

It’s for our own good. If you give voters a chance we will vote against our own interests. Because racism.

Brit globalists aren’t the only people unclear on how elections work:

A Virginia Republican delegate has filed a class-action lawsuit in federal court Friday challenging a state law that requires delegates to the national convention to vote for the winner of the primary, in this case Donald Trump.

A Virginia law dictates that delegates vote for the candidate who wins the state primary, NBC News reported, although the Virginia Republican Party rules call for voting proportional to the primary results.
“The First Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees delegates to the Republican Party’s and Democratic Party’s national conventions the right to vote their conscience, free from government compulsion, when participating in the selection of their party’s presidential nominee,” the complaint reads.

“Nonetheless, Virginia law acts to strip them of that right, imposing criminal penalties on delegates who vote for anyone other than the primary winner on the first ballot at a national convention. That law cannot be sustained under the First Amendment or as a legitimate exercise of Virginia’s authority under the United States Constitution.”

Beau Correll, a Republican delegate who served as one of Ted Cruz’s campaign co-chairs in Virginia, is the only named plaintiff in the lawsuit but filed on behalf of all of Virginia’s Republican and Democratic delegates. His attorneys wrote in the complaint that Correll is concerned Trump may sue him when he votes against him at the convention this summer, based on Trump’s reputation of being litigious.

That last paragraph is hilarious.

If you think this shit is bad now, wait until November when Trump wins.

    It’s mid-day Saturday there now, right? Are there really protestors?

    Dear Mr. Ansari, Go F–k YOURESELF! Since I have no idea who you are, I won’t be too critical of your worthless article in the equally worthless NYT. I will gently let you know, however, that the real revolution has begun but, apparently, you are not even aware of it. The real revolution is about love, respect, equality, safety, action and commitment. In this country there is only one political candidate who seems to be behind those principles. Unfortunately, from your biased and racist point of view, it is Donald Trump. The choices may not be to your liking but those are the facts. You are always free to leave and go some place that makes you feel more safe. Teh choice is yours.

    Conservative columnist George Will told PJM he has officially left the Republican Party and urged conservatives not to support presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump even if it leads to a Democratic victory in the 2016 presidential election. Will, who writes for the Washington Post, acknowledged it is a “little too late” for the Republican Party to find a replacement for Trump but had a message for Republican voters.

    “Make sure he loses. Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House,” Will said during an interview after his speech at a Federalist Society luncheon.

    Will said he changed his voter registration this month from Republican to “unaffiliated” in the state of Maryland.

    “This is not my party,” Will said during his speech at the event.

    I don’t know if the whiners in the UK really did cast a vote to leave and didn’t know what they were voting for, or if the people who voted to stay have just changed their shirts to get a do-over. Shirts probably bought and paid for and handed out to them by someone else. I am chuckling over the people who thought the vote to remain in the EU was all sewn up well enough they could safely cast a “protest vote” to leave. Whenever you cast a vote to show the world how angry you are, you have to be prepared for a lot of other people being angry, too.

    • Lulu says:

      The turnout for Leave was supposedly low. I don’t know for certain if the polls were wrong (Brits lie through their teeth to pollsters as they don’t want to be browbeaten and dehumanized as ignorant, racist, imbeciles or say they don’t know) or if the poll rigging by the globalist media was to terrorize everyone into voting Stay and therefore the lazy butt proggies didn’t get out of bed to go vote as they ASSUMED the polls were correct and they had terrorized everyone into voting the way they wanted them to do and thus they didn’t have to bother. Either way it is hilarious that they want a do-over. Also that moron Cameron told his flunkies that he was going to quit because he didn’t want to do the hard “shit” (his word not mine) of leave. What a bum. Get rid of his ass now before he sabotages things on the way out. When you quit you don’t get to select your exit date unless the employer agrees and trusts you. Why should anyone trust that bum?

      • There is no evidence the vote for Remain was low. Turn out topped 70% nationwide, much higher than for an election. What there is evidence for is that Remain lost by almost 4 points in high turn out referendum. Anything else is just sore losers and Western agitprop.

        • Lulu says:

          I believe it. They were blaming rain, etc. Rationalizing after the fact of course. The visible pain they are experiencing that they are in the minority and most people have the nerve to disagree with them is hilarious.

          • 49erDweet says:

            Rain? It always rains in England. If they can go punting on a canal or river in the rain they can sure turn out to vote.

          • Jadzia says:

            Great minds, that was what I was about to say. That’s like whining about rain in Oregon, or that it was just too darn hot to get out and vote in Texas.

    • Jadzia says:

      I don’t understand the part about being expected to feel sorry for people who are SO STUPID that they VOTED FOR WHAT THEY DIDN’T WANT(*) and then were upset when they got it.

      (*)Frankly, I don’t believe most of these people who claimed they only wanted to send a message. I think this is political theater, that most if not all of these “regretters” actually voted to stay, and, well, the whole thing smells like bullshit to me.

  8. votermom says:

    I officially lost 10 pounds since I started low-carbing in mid-spring!
    I am too forgetful to remember exactly when but it feels like forever.

    Which reminds me of the joke:
    Health food doesn’t make you live longer, it just feels that way.

    • Dora says:

      Good Joke. 🙂

    • lyn says:

      Wow! That’s great! You should write a post about it.

    • Good job, and congrats! Low carbing is essential as we reach middle age if we have a normal metabolism. You know you have a normal metabolism if your shape gets more pear-like as you age (for women).

      I’ve lost 25 pounds since January by replacing breakfast with a latte and reducing portions and carbs.

      • votermom says:

        25 lbs! That’s awesome!

        My weight loss had been slow then ace was nagging everyone to try intermittent fasting so I tried skipping breakfast in favor of just coffee with just butter or heavy cream (in other words, no carbs or protein) and the weight loss got better.

        I feel better too.

        • Some kind of fasting is important to the process for women. I used to be a big believer in starting the day with a good breakfast, but after reading up on leptin, I realized that I needed to have long stretches were my metabolism revved up. That’s when I switched to liquid breakfasts. At first I just fasted and then had a homemade fresh-squeezed veggie juice mid-morning. Now I’m having the tall nonfat latte. I will probably go back to the juice thing intermittently. It’s a real bowel-cleanser too. LOL

      • Constance says:

        Cool, I’m impressed, weight loss is hard!

    • Constance says:

      Congrats on the weight loss! Low-carbing is the only thing that works for me anymore too. It’s gotten to the point if I even binge on fruit like strawberries or cherries I gain a few pounds. How is it that as you age all of your systems slow down except somehow your body figures out how to get every little calorie you indulge in turned into fat. I seriously used to eat everything with no problem. Now I’m never full. It has to be some hormone malfunction.

  9. Dora says:

    • Lulu says:

      Scotland wants a do-over too. LOL. Idiots knew the Remain/Leave referendum was coming up. Did they consider that? NO! Tough shit dumb asses.

      • Constance says:

        The Scots always want to break away from England regardless of what is going on. They may be quiet about it for a few weeks but then they get right back on message.

  10. lyn says:

    Hillary’s lead is 14 points. Can we really believe the lyin’ media?

    • DeniseVB says:

      I just saw where Obama’s approvals are at 52%. I hate lyin’ polls !

      • CiscoKid says:

        This why I keep beating the “VOTE in November drum”
        If all the polls said Trump leads by 75%, don’t believe it, as much as we would like tthat.
        I believe that would be a attempt to keep Trump voters at home thinking, oh well, its all sewed up, don’t need my vote.
        We need a maximum effort of voter turnout, this may be out last chance to save America.

    • Venus says:

      That’s an Internet poll –1250 people total.
      Total bullshit too.

    • CiscoKid says:

      Now that’s what a GENUINE reporter should be doing, reporting the FACTS.
      Lying Hillary, will she ever, ever stop lying?
      I mean she gives us occasional liars a bad name.

      “I don’t know anyone who voted for Nixon, so how could he win?”

    • Lulu says:

      They can’t get accurate polling therefore they can’t craft marketing or agit-prop to influence, change minds or know where to go to shut people up. It is so bad that they had to get crazier and crazier with the fear mongering in the UK. It was so bad and so ridiculous that Leavers were making fun of them. While this guy may understand that over half (Brexiter’s and Trump supporters in the US) will no longer communicate with their betters for many and good reasons and harm “the welfare of entire nations” according to HIS preferences, it is really about the loss of their power and their inability to influence and threaten the opposition to globalism. They are being shut out by people who know they lie, manipulate, and are incompetent and are no longer opinion leaders or public intellectuals. Fuck him. Should have shown some respect when you could. Too late now you jerk.

      • 49erDweet says:

        Now’s the time to be in full “messin’ with their heads” mode. Answering every survey call now in detail, except never, EVER, telling ’em true intentions. Goin’ all over the page. Blow their minds and explode their heads when election returns come in.

      • Constance says:

        The Progs ruin whatever media they manage to control. There is nothing wrong with the concept of newspapers and news magazines. They have all just been driven nearly out of business because they are filled with Prog BS that no one will pay to read. Social media like Facebook and twitter are free so maybe Progs think they can push their BS with no consequences but real people won’t even consume Prog propaganda when it is offered up for free.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      That’s because all the people who voted to dump the EU are celebrating by using those horrid electric tea kettles the globalists wanted to ban.

  13. Dora says:

    This review is 2 years old, so I’d guess that the book wasn’t a best seller. Nevertheless, it explains how the EU was the idea of Hitler and the Nazis. I’m not surprised, since a lot of ideas from that time are still around. Universal health care started in Germany. And think how many people are still driving around in Hitler’s personally designed People’s Car. (Volkswagen)

    So when are those racist, bigoted Brits gonna go to the back of the queue?
    Isn’t that what our Dear Leader said when he lectured them whilst in the UK before the Brexit vote?
    He is such an asshat.

  16. Myiq2xu™ says:

    This is unfuckingbelievable!

    They are blaming Brexit on old people and say they are robbing the young people’s future.

    • This is what my coworker said yesterday. He said it was unfair that people minutes from death would get to choose for younger people. My response was: You’re a liberal. Why do you suddenly oppose direct democracy?

      He didn’t have an answer.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Um, young people outnumber older people, so who’s fault is that. Also, interesting assumption that their future would be better in vs. out.

    • 49erDweet says:

      …bc young people are so wise and experienced, and know so much better about EVERYTHING.

      • blowme0bama says:

        Yes, yes. That’s why we get such insight from 22 year old writers for Salon and Buzzfeed. The terrible thing is that those snot nosed twerps influence people.

        • votermom says:

          I’m in favor of raising the voting age to 30.
          I voted for some doozies in my youth.

          • DeniseVB says:

            My first vote was for McGovern. Yes, raise the age to 45! I swear, reading the wiki edition on the ’72 campaign was an eye opener. Of course, pre-internet days…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_McGovern

          • Constance says:

            I think the Republicans would be smart to throw free booze and food parties on election days near every big university. Of course don’t say it is Republicans behind it. That way the young Progs will be to busy boozing it up to vote. Also early voting needs to be ended. It shouldn’t be too difficult to discourage young Prog voters.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Also, WTF?, Cooke thinks not being ruled (anarchy) or lighter rule (small government democracy) leads to fascism? Fascism is a totalitarian rule where government and commerce (corporations) have merged. Our example is WWII Italy and Germany, where totalitarian socialist regimes absorbed corporations.

      Damn you peasants, do what your betters demand. EU just need to move their powerful central socialist government all the way over to full totalitarian rule.

    People are talking about a b.s. Reuters ON-LINE poll showing Hillary 14 points ahead – besides the fact that it’s a nation poll of only 1201 people, the internals show:
    626 Democrats (52% of total)
    423 Republicans (35% of total)
    122 independents
    30 other party.

    That’s nearly 33 percent more Democrats than Republicans.

    In reality Gallup reported in March that 46 percent of Americans are Democrats, and 40 percent are Republicans. Reuters freighted their poll with 20 percent more Democrats than Republicans.

    Just keep shit like that in mind with the MSM starts talking about polls — same way “Remain” was polled as an easy win.

    Ok, so I’m watching a rebroadcaster of a Johnny Carson show from 1976 and it seems the battle over Republican delegates is not new.
    In telling a joke he mentions that both President Ford and President to be, Regan both claim to have enough delegates going into the Republican convention.
    Briefly the joke goes President Ford talking to a delegate that he cannot promise a job in Fords administration should he be reelected.
    Ford then says “I shouldn’t even be letting you sit on my lap”.
    Funny in ’76?

    • 1539days says:

      Reagan almost had enough delegates in 1968 as well. There have always been a lot of dumbasses in the GOP. They seemed to think Ford and Nixon were so much better than Reagan.

      • Somebody says:

        Ford bested Reagan in 76 and Reagan won the nomination in 1980. Nixon was the nominee in 1968 and 72, Ford wasn’t in the picture until after Watergate in those previous years he was running for Congress. Reagan was only briefly involved in 68, he was part of a stop Nixon movement. Reagan at the time hoped to be a compromise candidate on a 2nd ballot, but there wasn’t ever a 2nd ballot as Nixon had enough delegates to win on the 1st.

        • CiscoKid says:

          Really appreciate that info, 1976 was soooo long ago and ’68? I was so politically naive I didn’t know my ass from a hole in the ground, politically speaking that is.
