In 2004, five days before the election, Patrick Andendall flew to Cleveland and pitched in to help with the political process. What he discovered was the dissolution of the American Dream, which he writes about in his book, Stupidparty.This book will, without difficulty, deconstruct the numerous misconceptions held by too many, by using easily available data and tools to relentlessly drill down, an exercise that will ultimately lead to the unmasking of the real culprits.
This book does not set out to destroy the Republican Party. The US needs at least two parties. By exposing the cornucopia of Myth with the relentless use of Math and facts, the problems then the solutions become self evident. Ultimately the books sets out what needs to be done to salvage the Republican party from what it has become – the Stupidparty.
The solution lies in the hands of the reader.
Since the printed version of the book will fall short in a number of critical ways, the publisher is determined to ensure that anybody who purchases a print version of the book will have the ability to secure the ebook version for free.
“‘We’ve got to stop being the stupid party,’ Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, one of the GOP’s brightest young stars, said in a much-anticipated speech last week at the party’s winter meeting. ‘We’ve got to stop insulting the intelligence of voters. We need to trust the smarts of the American people.’”
But of course they can’t stop.
The title of the book might appear contentious, but it really should not surprise anyone. This terminology is not my idea. I am fully aware that people who vote for the Republican Party are not by definition stupid. The term “Stupidparty” was catapulted into the public domain by Bobby Jindal, the Republican governor of Louisiana, who not too long ago was being groomed as the modern face of the conservative movement. Jindal was giving the keynote address at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting in Charlotte Jan 24, 2013, where he said:
“We’ve got to stop being the stupid party. It’s time for a new Republican Party that talks like adults.”
I bet he wishes he could take those words back. The audience must have winced. They all knew that the intellectual integrity of the Republican Party was under attack—and here was this one-time rising star of the party crystalizing what was already on many people’s minds. As I illustrate in Chapter 1, many well-known prognosticators from across the political spectrum had long ago arrived at a similar conclusion.
And I saw, and behold a white horse. And he that sat on him had calculated that he would forever be a ruler and would set forth and conquer Myth with the use of Math.
And there went out another horse, that was red. And power was given to him that sat thereon to take Science to mankind, and that he must prevent raging winds, hell’s furnace, and plagues by allowing research to inoculate against witchcraft.
The political parties should be very conscious about the welfare of the people in the society. The election results decide the ruling party and the government will run based on their decision making. So, the decision they make should be very genuine and it must help the people with some employment opportunities and all. The political parties can check my source who will help them to do the activities in an excellent manner.
And I beheld, and lo a black horse. And he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. On one side sat facts and on the other untruths, and never again would the two be held equivalent.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse. And his name that sat on him was Knowledge, and Ignorance followed behind. And as the power of Math, Science, and Facts was given to Knowledge, so he trampled over Ignorance, and deep into the earth this conquered beast did disperse.
The following is an exact transcript of the part of his speech that deals with his actual economic plan:
First, by 2020, North America will be energy independent by taking full advantage of our oil and coal and gas and nuclear and renewables.
Second, we will give our fellow citizens the skills they need for the jobs of today and the careers of tomorrow. When it comes to the school your child will attend, every parent should have a choice, and every child should have a chance.
Third, we will make trade work for America by forging new trade agreements. And when nations cheat in trade, there will be unmistakable consequences.
Fourth, to assure every entrepreneur and every job creator that their investments in America will not vanish as have those in Greece, we will cut the deficit and put America on track to a balanced budget.
And fifth, we will champion SMALL businesses, America’s engine of job growth. That means reducing taxes on business, not raising them. It means simplifying and modernizing the regulations that hurt small business the most. And it means that we must rein in the skyrocketing cost of healthcare by repealing and replacing Obamacare.
Today, women are more likely than men to start a business. They need a president who respects and understands what they do.
And let me make this very clear, unlike President Obama, I will not raise taxes on the middle class.
Sounds all good? Now hold on to your horses Mr. Romney……
So next time Stupidparty moans about non scandals such as Solyndra (a government investment that did not lead to profit), you might just want to ask why they do not appreciate the many ways they have profited from government investments or actions
Stupidparty people keep referring to reverse racism. By so raising this issue, they are rationalizing their racist feelings. This (dishonest) concern about reverse racism might be warranted in a balanced scenario where the Black population is as empowered as the White population and there had been no history of slavery, disenfranchisement, the KKK, voter suppression, profiling, and continued significant racism,
Obama had only introduced two new taxes, one for smokers and this Sun Tanning tax. The tax in question was initially proposed to deter Americans from frequenting tanning beds, which one study found causes roughly 170,000 cases of skin cancer each year.
Earlier this year, the FDA proposed a warning label requirement for all materials promoting tanning beds, and completely barring bed use by customers under 18. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S.

On the other hand, when you grow up, you will discover that some of the people in this world never passed beyond the stage of the cave-man.
