People like romney and adelson and the kochs who felt they could simply buy the presidency, as they felt perfectly entitled to do, were proven wrong.

People saw that romney was a vicious, greedy, dishonest crook who made his living looting other peoples’ livelihoods and acted like it was a job well done.

People understood that the republicans want to take from most of us to give more to the rich.

Democratic voters endured a variety of efforts to suppress their votes and voted in large enough numbers to defeat republicans everywhere.

There is now a majority of people who see through the lies and phony “narratives” and ignore the appeals to fear and ignorance and that majority will only grow.

We are not a conservative or center right nation. Less attentive or less politically involved voters are figuring out they don't agree with republicans.

Hopefully. we’ve passed the tipping point and entered an era of shriveling support for conservative views and policies that will ensure the right’s best efforts will no longer be enough. Hopefully, their giant multi-level multi-directional con and influence peddling game posing as a political faction will soon cease to be seen as legitimate.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    when I see a republican on tv, I always think of Monty Python: "Shut your festering gob you tit! Your type makes me puke!"

    The country is not center-right or even center.  Most Americans aren't buying what the Republicans are selling.  What we gotta make sure is we carry that momentum on over to the midterm elections.  We cannot afford another 2010.

    Last month, we offered a million dollar reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone who rigged a federal election on November 6th.  We urged computer experts to contact us with information about any election manipulation of the tabulation results.

    We Received A Letter

    On November 12th, we received a letter from “The Protectors,” apparently a group of white hat cyber sleuths, mentioning our reward and stating that two months ago, they began monitoring the “digital traffic of one Karl Rove, a disrespecter of the Rule of Law, knowing that he claimed to be Kingmaker while grifting vast wealth from barons who gladly handed him gold to anoint another King while looking the other way.”

    “The Protectors” said that they had identified the digital structure of Rove’s operation and of ORCA, a Republican get out the vote software application.  After finding open “doors” in the systems, they created a “password protected firewall” called “The Great Oz,” and installed it on servers that Rove planned to use on election night to re-route and change election results “from three states.”

    The letter indicated that “ORCA Killer” was launched at 10am EST and “The Great Oz” at 8pm EST on November 6th. “The Protectors” watched as ORCA crashed and failed throughout Election Day.  They watched as Rove’s computer techs tried 105 times to penetrate “The Great Oz” using different means and passwords.
