"What IF a republican wins in 2008? What actions will you take?"
It is more and more looking like the nightmare scenario put forth by the DUmmies in this THREAD titled, "What IF a republican wins in 2008? What actions will you take?" is going to come true. I just don't see any scenario in which any of the Democrat candidates for president can win especially, as is looking more likely, if Mitt Romney is the Republican nominee. Yeah, I know the Huckster surged forward in the polls but he peaked too early and now that he is being scrutinized more carefully, I am sure he will fade in popularity over the next few weeks to the advantage of Romney. The most FUn thing of next year's campaign season won't be the general election in which I am sure of the outcome. It will be watching Hillary go BERSERK when it appears she won't be annointed as Empress in the primaries. I take that back. Actually the most FUn thing will be the immediate post-election watching the DUmmies go out of their minds in grief at the thought of having to live under yet another EVIL Republican regime. Remember, DUmmies, I want to see lots of FUnnie Drama Queen antics out of you such as the time immediately after the 2004 election when you all "stood up" and announced your real names. Barking at the moon and grief stricken wailing is highly encouraged. Oh, and don't forget to include lots of Rovian conspiracy theories mixed in with your anger. I am really looking forward to this. However, we can now get a sneak preview of their reaction to election loss in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, looking forward to lots of juicy DUFU material as the result of next year's election results, is in the [brackets]:
What IF a republican wins in 2008? What actions will you take?
[Leave this planet after my head explodes.]
Leave the country?
Start a revolution?
Accept it but bitch about it for another 4 years?
[Crawl back into my basement and weep in grief atop a pile of pizza cartons.]
I pose this question because I think about it alot, especially while watching Tweety whoring himself for Hillary and Ghouliani at the same time, but mostly for the republican side. And we still have not dealt with election fraud, which no one mentions anymore.
[This DUmmie needs a Reality Check if he thinks that Chris Matthews is whoring for the Republicans.]
Personally, I'm leaning toward complete revolution...but that's only me.
[What are you going to do? Run out into the middle of Constitution Ave. and let loose with a Primal Scream? And now to hear from the rest of the DUmmies who see defeat on the horizon...]
the scariest thing is the Supreme Court might be lost for decades. I might start hoarding Euros and sharp sticks while I plan an escape in a few years.
[Fear the wrath of the Apocalito!]
Sadly, it already is unless the Dem president is willing to risk stacking the court. Stacking the court is something I'd like to see the Dem candidates address, but it's too politically risky.
[Just ask FDR. Even the penisless FDR would hesitate to try that.]
There are NO left-wing justices to balance out the right-wing wackjobs like Scalia, Thomas, and the rest. Our only hope is to slow the race to the con side a little. But a tru progressive - never gonna happen.
[Especially when Mitt does the nominating.]
Try to find a nice house in the UK somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Go be an expat and write for a living.
[Yeah, like you will automatically be handed a big publishing contract. Which reminds me, I will soon be serializing on the DUFUs a bunch of short stories based on my WEIRD experiences selling satellite dishes in L.A.. I don't expect a book contract of it but at least it will be read by a wide audience.]
I'm already out. 2006 was the last hurrah for me. I'm done with wasting time and money and anxiety on a bad investment. I'm tired of pointing out the obvious to people who refuse to see it. And even if we win, we lose. So I'm done. In March when I vote it will be either ___ or Kucinich. In the fall, it will be a socially liberal imperialist vs. a socially conservative imperialist. Our "choice" is entirely illusory.
[You're already out? So where are you posting this from? Cuba? Nope. They don't allow access to the Internet there.]
Maybe increase my stores of emergency rations.
[Better stock up on the pizzas for your basement shelter.]
Hunker down for harder times that will surely be coming.We live on a small farm and raise the majority of what we eat, meat included. We will carry on. Leaving the country is not an option, I doubt I could get into Canada much less anywhere else due to my record. We already have supplies backed up in the event of 'things getting hinky'.
If the people revolt, I will be on the front lines. I am prepared for that also, well prepared....to the gills prepared. I don't mean fire sticks and farm implements either.
Maybe I am a little paranoid about it, maybe not. I do not put ANYTHING past the government. I believe that there is a real threat of another stolenelection.
[Mad Marx: Beyond the ThunderDUmmie.]
I'm pretty much planning to leave the country either way. I don't see big changes with the frontrunning dems and this country needs big changes.
[I guess your "win" in 2006 wasn't all that satisfying?]
Where would you go and how would you get there? I'm interested in hearing about countries that allow anyone to just move into. Thanks.
[May I send you a North Korean Welcome Wagon basket?]
Climb a clock tower...
[Sayeth the DUmmie Charles Whitman.]
Drop out of politics, same as I did after Chimpy took office. That's self-preservation-- my blood pressure and stomach lining couldn't take any careful attention to that undeserving assclown occupying the Oval Office. I kept up with current events and glanced at politics every now and then, but I have never sat through a Chimpy speech or press conference--not once. This coming election is what brought me back to paying close attention to politics, because I have hope that I'll get a good--or even great--Dem President this time around.
[It sounds like deep hibernation would be the solution to your problem.]
Buying a high powered rifle with a scope.
[Another DUmmie headed for the clock tower.]
To hunt with!
[Hunting EVIL Republicans. Honest!]
i'll probably have a nervous breakdown. i wonder if my health insurance will pay for my stay in the nut house.
[No problem. Have Head DUmmie Skinner fill out the NUt house papers for you.]
I've already got my guns, would love the idea of revolution but... I will pussy out and probably leave the country. Been planning to leave for awhile, luckily I just landed a job to begin that transition.
[Save up those Mickey D dollars to make your getaway.]
I'm down with revolution.
Raid the voting places and confiscate the machines. til we had a chance to check their validity.
[A DUmmie John Brown preparing to raid the Harper's Ferry voting places.]
My sister-in-law is Japanese. Maybe she could instruct me in the proper ritual of Hara Kiri?
[Somehow I don't think you would get beyond the first scratch.]
I'd start reaming Democratic ass!
[Is that you, Ben Burch?]
I'm officially over the edge because I did think about this.
[As are all the other DUmmies. Way to go in the confidence department.]
I used to smirk a little at our DU "I'm outta here" threads. I'm not smirking any more. Between the camps they're building, no habeus, the spying and the hatred being engendered in this society, this place is just scary any more. I'll have to support your revolution off site, graywarrior, unless I can find a good hideout in the mountains.
[Please remain where you are, DUmmie sfexpat2000, until the 'Puke Police arrive to send you off to the newly constructed Walmart Detention Center.]
I'll be off to deepest Madagascar, to bring the Lemurs the gifts of FIRE and toolmaking. Because another Repub President will be all the evidence I need to declare Homo Sapiens a failed experiment. That will be time
to start over from scratch.
[Fine but hold off about a thousand years before showing the Lemurs how to use the wheel.]
