“I’m voting Republican” YouTube post

A new video on YouTube is taking the Internet by storm. Entitled “I’m Voting Republican,” the satirical clip depicts actors playing conservative Americans of all shapes and sizes explaining why they would vote for the GOP.  I am not even going to link to it because it is so odd and the implications are reminiscent of Howard Dean’s comments that Republicans want children to go to bed hungry in “counter-distinction” to Democrats.

“Arnold Jones” says he’s voting Republican because “all other countries are inferior to us” — and his wife, “Trudy Jones,” adds, “and we should start as many wars as we need to keep it that way.” A soldier in Iraq states that he’s voting Republican “so I can stay in Iraq” — and a young boy, labeled “future draftee,” points a fake gun at the camera and smiles while saying “so I can go to Iran!”

A black couple says they’re voting Republican because they “like a conservative majority on the Supreme Court,” with the wife noting, “we really like knowing that even if we’re separate, we’ll still be called equal.”

This insulting nonsense is precisely what liberals think of conservatives: We’re all warmongers, racists, environmental rapists and secret emissaries of big corporations. We’re going to reinstitute the draft, start a war with Canada and then relocate African-Americans to Quebec.

I could counter this with a mockery of Democrat principles but it would be foolish.  One thing that this does point out to me, however, is that Democrats have such a command on marketing, distribution, and technology right now that they are killing the Republican image.  The GOP is so far behind that it is painful.  Why can they not catch up and why are they avoiding this.  YAF, Hot Air, and others are trying and doing a great job, but until Republicans catch up on the internet.  It is too bad that Ron Paul cannot jump on board and help us out a bit as his people seemed to do a good job.

    From the website http://www.imvotingrepublican.com:

    “The movie was written and directed by Charlie Steak and produced by SyntheticHuman Pictures. Everyone worked on the film for free. Contributions from individuals paid for most of the expenses.”

    I think it’s pretty obvious that this is what Mr. Steak thinks of Republicans, not the views of all Democrats everywhere forever and ever. Regardless, something about this video must resonate with the many people viewing it. They must see some truths – real or imagined – in the message.

    The much-vaunted “permanent majority” has failed; the conservative message has become diluted; the principles have been cashed in for predictable politics. No one other than the Republicans themselves can be blamed for this. It’s over.
