We have a new name here for the party which the American people decided 2 weeks ago to make the majority party in Washington despite their having no plan for anything except to raise taxes: the Downercrats. Because if you listen to them closely, and see what they intend to do with this country, you will feel like a downer.
This is part 1, the first installment, of "You Gets What You Deserves," a look at what the morons known as the American people voted for in Congressional elections in 2006. We will examine the true face of the Downercrat Party as they make this country into a rotting stinking shithole.
Does anyone remember, say, 2 years ago, during the 2004 campaign, when Downercrats claimed that President Bush would reinstate the draft if he got re-elected? Despite the fact that such a claim never came to pass, the Downercrats in the House in 2005, then in the minority (oh, those blessed days!), decided that they wanted to reinstate the draft, and, led by Bonehead Du Jour Charles Rangel, pushed for a vote on a draft reinstatement - a vote that, as it was going down to extraordinary defeat, even Rangel voted against it.
Now that the Downercrats are in the majority, what is one of the first pieces of business for them? Withdraw from Iraq? Raise taxes? Make gay marriage legal? No - it is to reinstate the draft.
As we say, America: You gets what you deserves for voting for this crowd of sickos.
Rep. Rangel will seek to reinstate draft
WASHINGTON - Americans would have to sign up for a new military draft after turning 18 under a bill the incoming chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says he will introduce next year.
Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., said Sunday he sees his idea as a way to deter politicians from launching wars.
"There's no question in my mind that this president and this administration would never have invaded Iraq, especially on the flimsy evidence that was presented to the Congress, if indeed we had a draft and members of Congress and the administration thought that their kids from their communities would be placed in harm's way," Rangel said.
Rangel, a veteran of the Korean War who has unsuccessfully sponsored legislation on conscription in the past, has said the all-volunteer military disproportionately puts the burden of war on minorities and lower-income families.
Rangel said he will propose a measure early next year. While he said he is serious about the proposal, there is little evident support among the public or lawmakers for it.
In 2003, Rangel proposed a measure covering people age 18 to 26. It was defeated 402-2 the following year. This year, he offered a plan to mandate military service for men and women between age 18 and 42; it went nowhere in the Republican-led Congress.
How hilarious - somehow, Rangel now finds the evidence used to go to war "flimsy," which seemed to rope in John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, Steny Hoyer, etc. Must be a lot of dimwits in the Downercrat Party, eh?
Here is what the Republican minority should do: push for an immediate vote on the Rangel draft resolution. Demand a vote, and publicize it wherever tv cameras show up. On the floor of the House, rail against it and accuse Downies of trying to suck American boys and girls into war.
Then, watch as the resolution gets voted down overwhelmingly again. Then, put on commercials how the first piece of business by Nancy Pelosi's Gang was to try to draft American boys and girls into the military. See how that plays amongst the middle class who voted for these whackos.
Let America see: you gets what your deserves.
