“That Has Left Republicans In A Difficult Spot”

Don' Worry; Be Hoppy'

Don’ Worry;
Be Hoppy’

“Mr.Churchill, It seems the entire British Expeditionary Force is in a “difficult spot” in a little place called Dunkirk”

 

“Mein Fuehrer, The Russians are closing from the East; the Americans from the West; they are both bombing us and the majority of your staff are in the process of committing suicide in their quarters. It seems we are in a ‘difficult spot’.”

 

“Mr. Boehner, The American people have gone from being somewhat suspicious of our motives to believing that we are in an all-out assault on women, the poor, and anyone darker than alabaster. They think Republicans are part of a world-wide conspiracy to enslave all but the true 1%ers. They have discovered our well hidden secret that the majority of our party members are by necessity; ‘dumb as a stump’ so that our small group of sinister leaders can easily control them and they also know now that we are willing to say anything to sift out the most gullible from all ethnic and economic groups to use in our attempt to appear a ‘Party of the People’. They recognize that almost all violent extremists and mass murderers espouse a Republican/Conservative/Libertarian political bent and that the Republican Party is willing to use such extremists to further their own agenda. Since we finally went too far into the land of ‘Aw the great unwashed will buy anything’ and presented America with an Ass and oblivious Liar in the person of Mitt Romney; they finally see that Republicans have no respect for anyone other than our own highest Poobahs; including our own ‘rank and file’. Our unrelenting resistance to, and perpetual whining about the Affordable Care Act has demonstrated clearly that we care nothing for others and are perfectly willing to watch Americans by the millions die and worse; live in pain and misery, as long as it doesn’t cost the wealthiest a little more money. Sir, we may be in a ‘difficult spot’.”

What should we do?  What should we do? What should we do?

Well; Lie of course.

As we would and should expect from the Republicans; when backed into a corner; they will lie.

They will lie because they know the truth of those words spoken long ago by an early member of their party.

You can fool some of the people all of the time; you can fool all of the people some of the time…and they know what I know and what you will know when I explain the math.

I have; over the past 55 years; seen the results of more polls and surveys than I care to remember. It seems to me that whenever polls are taken of the entire nation; 30-34% is a common number that often comes up. America seems to like to divide itself into three distinct groups. Those who are sure something is or will or does; those who just can’t decide; and those who are sure something isn’t or won’t or doesn’t. This seems to be especially true where unverified statements are made and people are asked what they believe. While it is true that other percentages are also often seen; 33% seems a fair number to use for the purposes of this explanation and at least avoids favoritism by my mad, manipulative, liberal mind.

So, lets examine:  You can fool;

“Some of the people all of the time.” — So some = 33% are fooled every time (100%) of the times they are lied to

“All of the people some of the time.” — So all = 100% are fooled some (33%) of the times they are lied to.

Now in fairness we can’t apply these percentages to the entire voting population. Why?

Because approximately 33% of the people will not believe anything the Republicans say; period.lindsey graham troubled

So 66% are at all affected by the lies. Sounds like they just took a big hit but 66% is more than a majority so lets see how it plays out because 33% will believe anything spewed by a Republican. When we discount these folks we are left with just 33% of the population.

Now this 33% is open to persuasion. Better grab those two premises again.

“Some of the people all of the time.” =33% of 33% or 11%

“All of the people some of the time.” =100% of 33%

33 of 33 = 11

33 + 11 = 44

leaving 22%

22 /33% = 7.33

44 + 7.33 = 51.33% of the population

So; though admittedly rough; my figures show that Republicans have a pretty good chance of getting a 1.33% majority just by putting lies out for public consumption. The more lies they publish; the better their numbers will become.drowning liberty

Such is the power of the lie. Such is the power of evil if we simply stand by and do nothing.

    🙂 Oh the power of lies… When people lie or give false information it’s bound to come out sooner or later. In the meantime, the first story people hear is the first one that comes to mind. So unless people research or look for the truth, then they may stick with the lie. Republicans know this bit of human nature and exploit it to their advantage.

    That is terrifying. It is also why I am furious with the DNC and Progressives in general. We truly do need to get a backbone and start spending money to counter those lies. Not just with namby-pamby, wishy-washy maybe crap but with full frontal assaults.

    I don’t think your math checks out. That middle 33% which you said is affected by persuasion would be some who can be fooled all of the time and all who can be fooled some of the time. That still leaves 33% Republican base + 11% who can be fooled all the time + 22% who can be persuaded to vote with them some of the time if Republicans lie well enough. Sounds like it’s the Democrats who are in a difficult spot.

    Yeah…; Like I said, “though admittedly rough; my figures”.
    That there is what you call a “disclaimer of vague scope and hazy intent”.
    Some folks call it a “cover-up”, but I likes to call it a “disclaimer of vague scope and hazy intent”.

    If you found a better lie than mine; great

    If your figures are real and the product of actual time spent in provable calculations, I am even more impressed.
    My numbers were done quickly and with the deep feeling that though not accurate; they would represent the truth.

    “There is no room for error in my calculations. They are rock solid. And I am unanimous in that.”

    You too?

    Whoo Hoo!

      I don’t have the exact numbers either, so I just used yours,
