Best Laid Plans: Either way, You’re Still Going to End Up With Either Republicans or Democrats

Inside the Democrats’ Plan to Save Arkansas—and the Senate – The Atlantic

PINE BLUFF, Arkansas—No sign announces the purpose of this little storefront, squeezed between a Bestway Rent to Own and a Rent-a-Center in a dilapidated shopping center. But the words hand-lettered in black and red marker on three pieces of paper taped to the window—”Register to Vote Here”—and a cluster of placards for candidates give it away: It is a Democratic Party field office.

Every day brings a new article about a different state being the “key to saving the Senate for the Democrats.”

Here’s a clue:  There is no such state.  The control of the Senate will flip from Democrats to the GOP a bit more than two months hence.  The only question now is how wide a margin the GOP will achieve.

Well, there is another question:  What will the GOP do with it once they’ve won it?

My guess?  Gentry GOP business as usual.  Two years from now Scamnesty will be in place, Obamacare will be unchanged, and Republican “leaders” will be claiming there was nothing they could do, so vote for them in 2016 for House, Senate, and the White House.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.


Best Laid Plans: Either way, You’re Still Going to End Up With Either Republicans or Democrats — 3 Comments

  1. I still think that the GOP is stupid enough to screw up what should be a sure thing. Also, the Dems have gotten more obvious about voter fraud. I said two months ago that the GOP would fail to take the Senate. I would like to be wrong if for no other reason than watching The Pederast piss himself on the Senate floor.

  2. I lived in Pine Bluff for five years in the early 80s. Then, everyone (black and white) were in denial that the city was “majority minority”. The people running the place simply were terrified that the remaining white citizens were going to leave, and with them the tax base.

    The surrounding communities; Dollarway, White Hall, Watson Chapel and the rest were like nougat around a chocolate center.

    I’d guess that the fifty thousand people in Pine Bluff should be good for about sixty-five thousand Democrat votes. All they need are names, it doesn’t matter whether they actually vote (regardless of age), what matters is who tallies the vote.

    Pine Bluff, especially the area around the (traditionally black) college, was the first time I had shopkeepers send an armed guard out to sit in my van while I was in the store. That way I’d have a van to return to. It used to panic those guys when I’d show up close to twilight. They’d say, “Man, you better be gone by dark, I can’t protect you.”

    I sold a lot of Salems, though. Only once did I truly feel a mite unsafe. Menaced by a group of ‘chillins’, they parted like the Red Sea when someone shouted, “Shit niggas, ‘at’s the Cigarette Man, doan fuck wif ‘im.”
