Perhaps if only valid voters voted,
and the IRS weren’t throwing the election,

that would have already happened.

Hey we’d love to.

Now what about reining in your various government agencies that have been directly and indirectly suppressing the vote/opposition?

Uh, last time I looked WE THE PEOPLE did win the election. We control the House. And (notwithstanding certain spineless wimps) the House controls the purse strings. Obama can blow it out his arse. His remaining days as wannabe dictator are extremely limited.

And don't forget the lying media.

This is like snidely telling someone whose legs you just chopped off to go run a marathon.

His policies are tyrannical.

Which means he is a tyrant.

And the only way to overturn a tyrant is to rebel against him.

Well, at least that is what history shows how you treat a tyrant.

Obama says this with confidence - because we have seen our last free and honest national election back in 2008.

Obama knows the GOP will never win another Presidency - and in the triangulation he’s perfected with dividing the Ruling Class from their base - there’s a good chance the GOP will never win major elections ever again and Obama KNOWS THIS.

Which is why he snarly made this statement today. He knows the GOP will never be able to “win” another national election for the presidency or major seats that would challenge the Ruling Class hold on power.

We’ve suffered a coup folks. A velvet coup. And most of you are not willing to see that reality - instead most are infected with Normalcy Bias and continue to think politics now is just the horse race it always was.

They have no idea what time it is.

South40 to jug-eared jackass currently occupying the White House:

The GOP did win an election, they won many, which is why they control the purse strings. Remember the 2010 mid-terms wherein the DNC was handed its worst defeat in 62 years? Of course you do.

So, in Barry-logic, whoever wins the last Presidential election should have total, uncontested rule?

What’s the purpose of having Congress in session, then?

Hmmm. I thought we did win an election in 2010, which is why Pelosi is no longer Speaker. It didn’t stop Obama from pushing the same communist policies.

For all intents and purposes, she still is Speaker.

Saddam Hussein, Fidel Castro and Idi Amin used to wear that same smirk on their face and glare in their eyes when they’d say stuff like that. Kind of like saying, “What are you sicko, little people going to do about it?”

The GOP is just another wing of the Democratic Party, with the exception of a few.

Totally agree. The coup has already happened. Nobody votes out the dictator. You only have to look at the Middle East!

You can’t vote him out, he can turn it over to another dictator, but you won’t successfully vote him out.

Corruption abounds in every facet of the USA...from it’s politics, to business and throughout our nation now. It is each man for himself as there are no moral boundaries to stop it.

McConnell didn’t blink when he was presented with the offer they knew he would not resist. Our government is and has been up for sale....and our politicians want it that way.

Any group who opposes this status quo will be mightly opposed as we saw happening recently with this bill.

I fear we have passed, or are close, to the point of no return unless the people do rise up with a mighty voice, I can’t see that happening when we are fast being outnumbered as the influx of undesirables, and they are coming in masses, continues to infiltrate our nation...invited and otherwise.

It is worse than sad to see what has happened to this great nation....unfortunately the rest of the world sees while our youth and most Americans are terribly uniformed as the media sees to it that they are.
