With the explosion of the TPM, those who choose to use their own brain ... as opposed to being spoon fed by the respective two "MAJOR" parties ... has reached a point of parity.

The TPM has led to the ascension of the belief that the USA should return to it's libertarian/liberal/conservative small govt pro liberty roots.

This is why you see RINO's on the endangered species list across the country. The TPM sees the (R) party as potentially salvageable and reformable into a conservative party ... far simpler than building a major party from scratch. If this effort fails, the TPM will reconstitute as the second "MAJOR" party while the GOP dies due to terminal RINO virus.

At the same time, the TPM ... as well as many long term (D) voters ... are finally seeing the democrooks for what they truly are, wild eyed Marxists intent on destroying the US capitalist system and gaining ever more control over the minutiae of the lives of the US public.

IOW ... the democrooks as a ruling party are dead. The republichickens must shape up or go the way of the Whigs.

For Second Straight Month, Number of Democrats in U.S. Falls to Record Low</span>
Friday, October 01, 2010

For the second month in a row, the number of Americans who identify themselves as Democrats has fallen to a record low.

In September, 34.6% of American Adults identified themselves as Democrats. That’s down nearly half a percentage point from a month ago, a full percentage point from two months ago, and is the smallest percentage of Democrats ever recorded in nearly eight years of monthly tracking.
At the same time, the number of Republicans slipped from 33.8% in August to 33.1% last month.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>The number of Adults not affiliated with either major party is now at 32.3%.</span>

As has been the case in every month over the past eight years of tracking, there are more Democrats than Republicans in the nation. The gap is currently 1.5 percentage points. That’s up from a 1.2-percentage-point gap a month ago. The past two months are the closest the Republicans have been to parity in more than five years - since July 2005.

Things were much better for Democrats heading into the two most recent election cycles. In September 2006, they enjoyed a 4.8-percentage-point advantage. In September 2008, the gap was 5.6 percentage points.

However, things aren’t quite as rosy for the Republicans as they were in September 2004. Heading into the presidential election that year, the Democrats had a 0.6-percentage-point advantage. That was the best single month ever recorded for the GOP.

Rasmussen Reports tracks this information based on telephone interviews with approximately 15,000 adults per month and has been doing so since November 2002. The margin of error for the full sample is less than one percentage point, with a 95% level of confidence.

Compared to one year ago, the number of Democrats is down three percentage points, and the number of Republicans is up a point.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>Compared to September 2008, the number of Democrats is down four percentage points</span>, and the number of Republicans is little changed.

The biggest advantage ever measured for Democrats was 10.1 percentage points in May 2008. In December 2008, the final full month of the Bush administration, the Democrats held an 8.8-percentage-point advantage.

Between November 2004 and 2006, the Democratic advantage in partisan identification grew by 4.5 percentage points. That foreshadowed the Democrats' big gains in the 2006 midterm elections. The gap grew by another 1.5 percentage points between November 2006 and November 2008 leading up to Barack Obama's election.

The number of Democrats peaked at 41.7% in May 2008, and it was nearly as high - at 41.6% - in December 2008. The number of Democrats fell below the 40% mark in March 2009 and first fell below 36% in December of last year. Rasmussen Reports has been tracking this data monthly since November 2002.

Prior to this month’s data, the lowest level of identification with the Democrats has been 35.1%. It was reached twice, in February and May of this year.

For Republicans, the peak was way back in September 2004 at 37.3%. For nearly five years, since late 2005, the number of Republicans has generally stayed between 31% and 34% of the nation’s adults.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>Keep in mind that figures reported in this article are for all adults, not likely voters. Republicans are a bit more likely to participate in elections than Democrats.</span> </div></div>

Some leftys hav started a moovment to ban repeating multi-shot boomerangs, ie the type that come back. The say that private ownership of boomerangs shood be restricted to single-shot boomerangs, ie the type that dont come back. And that boomerangs shood need a permit.
While the powers that be are procrastinating, banks are being held up by boomerang wielding drug adicts.
Some say that there are more boomerangs in ozz than people.
Tourists are not allowed to carry boomerangs onto their flight home -- but they are getting around this restriction by buying a plank of wood with the boomerang outline drawn with dots -- and they simply cut it out when they get home.
Boomerangs kood be the next big problem in the usofa scene.

Your hatred of all things non-regime colors every thought in your head tpo the point that you have become a caricature.

Now, back to the far left's worst enemy ... <span style='font-size: 11pt'>reality</span>:

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Polling is both an art and a science, but recently it's also become a subject of political intimidation. ...

Polling is a science because it requires a range of sampling techniques to be used to select a sample. It is an art because constructing a sample and asking questions is something that requires skill, experience and intellectual integrity. The possibility of manipulation—or, indeed, intimidation—is great.

A recent case in point is what has happened to Scott Rasmussen, an independent pollster we both work with, who has an unchallenged record for both integrity and accuracy. Mr. Rasmussen correctly predicted the 2004 and 2008 presidential races within a percent, and accurately called the vast majority of contested Senate races in 2004 and 2006. <span style='font-size: 11pt'>His work has sometimes been of concern for Republicans, particularly when they were losing congressional seats</span> in 2004 and 2006.

Most recently, Mr. Rasmussen has been the leader in chronicling the decline in the public's support for President Obama. And so he has been the target of increasingly virulent attacks from left-wing bloggers seeking to undermine his credibility, and thus muffle his findings. A Politico piece, "Low Favorables: Democrats Rip Rasmussen," reported on the attacks from blogs like the Daily Kos, Swing State Project, and Media Matters.

"Rasmussen Caught With Their Thumb on the Scale," cried the Daily Kos last summer. "Rasmussen Reports, You Decide," the blog Swing State Project headlined not long ago in a play on the Fox News motto. ...

Liberals have also noted that Rasmussen's daily presidential tracking polls have consistently placed Mr. Obama's approval numbers around five percentage points lower than other polling outfits throughout the year. This is because Rasmussen surveys likely voters, who are now more Republican in orientation than the overall electorate. (Gallup and other pollsters survey the entire adult population.) On other key issues like health care, Rasmussen's numbers have been echoed by everyone else. ...

The reaction against him has been strident and harsh. He's been called an adjunct of the Republican Party when in fact he has never worked for any political party. Nor has he consulted with any candidates seeking elective office.

The attacks on <span style='font-size: 11pt'>Rasmussen and Gallup follow an effort by the White House to wage war on Fox News and to brand it, as former White House Director of Communications Anita Dunn did, as "not a real news organization." The move backfired; in time, other news organizations rallied around Fox News.</span> <span style='font-size: 14pt'>But the message was clear: criticize the White House at your peril.</span>

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>As pollsters for two Democratic presidents who served before Barack Obama, we view this unprecedented attempt to silence the media and to attack the credibility of unpopular polling as chilling to the free exercise of democracy.</span>

This is more than just inside baseball. As practicing political consultants, both of us have seen that the established parties try to stifle dissent among their political advisers and consultants. The parties go out of their way to try to determine in advance what questions will be asked and what answers will be obtained to reinforce existing party messages. <span style='font-size: 20pt'>The thing most feared is independence, which is what Mr. Rasmussen brings.</span>

Mr. Gibbs's comments and the recent attempts by the Democratic left to muzzle Scott Rasmussen reflect a disturbing trend in our politics: a tendency to try to stifle legitimate feedback about political concerns—particularly if the feedback is negative to the incumbent administration.

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>Mr. Caddell served as a pollster for President Jimmy Carter. Mr. Schoen, who served as a pollster for President Bill Clinton, is the author of "The Political Fix" just out from Henry Holt.</span></div></div>

THAT (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703436504574640973183026230.html) was the pollster for the Carter and Clinton regimes speaking. This is where you, G, and H declare him to be a right wing nut republican.

The stimulus, formally known as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, included tax cuts for many Americans, Obama said.

"We cut taxes. We cut taxes for 95 percent of working families. We cut taxes for small businesses," Obama said. "We cut taxes for first-time homebuyers. We cut taxes for parents trying to care for their children. We cut taxes for 8 million Americans paying for college."</div></div>

What they did was have the IRS reduce withholding ... meaning people got a few more bucks each week. The problem is that come year end they will either have a higher tax bill to pay of a lower tax refund to receive. Their tax for the year will not have been changed.

Back to reality, HERE (http://republicans.waysandmeans.house.gov/UploadedFiles/DemTaxIncreases1.pdf) is a list of $670,000,000,000.00 in new taxes since Obama was inaugurated.

Add in trillion dollar deficits for as far as the eye can see and a refusal to extend the Bush era tax cuts and you have the disaster that is the regime.
