Quote# 72415

The Imminent Fall of Western Civilization...

...can be traced to tonight, I think.

I was working the election.

Yes, it was a runoff involving only the far-down-the-ballot judgeship races. Yes, it was a Republican primary runoff in a heavily (perhaps the most heavily) Democratic side of town. Yes, those with a real interest in these races had the opportunity to vote early, which was more convenient for most (including me). Still...

There were 26 combined precincts at my polling place with a grand total of 42,788 registered voters.

Of that number, how many were Republicans who cared enough to show up and vote?

Ten. That's right, ten.

I fear that Western civilization does not have long to live.

Yes, clearly the Antichrist will arise via a poor decision during a speeding ticket hearing.

This one almost made me add a 'BWAAHAHAHA' ranking option along with the WTF?! and meh.

Remember kiddies, when you vote Democrat, you're really voting Antichrist!

Funny how your idea of the end of civilization sounds like a glimmer of hope to sane people.

I honestly and genuinely do not understand why you fear anything at all. Isn't the world SUPPOSED to end? Aren't we all SUPPOSED to die? Isn't it supposed to be the best thing that will ever happen? When you're in heaven after the rapture, will you mourn Western Civilisation? Isn't there supposed to be tribulation and destruction? Then why do you "fear" that something bad might be happening to the world?

Same reason I don't understand why aborted babies or any deaths of children make baby Jesus cry. They would almost certainly have ended up in hell if they had been born, since they wouldn't've joined your sect.

A district where out of over 42,000 voters, only ten Republicans showed up to vote?

Tell me where you live!! I want to move there.

America != Western civilization. Fuck you.

Yes, because the Republican voters in Podunksville, Dumbfuckistan are too fucking lazy to get out and vote, the entirety of Western civilization is about to fall. Self-centered much???

Funny, I get the same feeling when I see the senile blue hairs with the walkers getting coaxed into the voting booth to pull the nice red lever. Besides that, I didn't hear you complain when Dubya got 100% of the Black vote (Clarence Thomas).

It was obviously a runoff election because nobody gave a crap in the first place as to which one of these conservative citizens was going to have the privilege of losing the general election.

Right..because Democrats and liberals are known for their hatred of western values like rational debate and enlightenment...only right wingers stand behind the enlightenment now a days.

The Imminent Fall of Western Civilization...
...can be traced to tonight, I think.


Because western civilization has always been dependent on the republican turnout in a podunk primary election.

I was working the election.

~*gasp*~ A RR'er working on an evil free election? Blasphemy!

Yes, it was a runoff involving only the far-down-the-ballot judgeship races. Yes, it was a Republican primary runoff in a heavily (perhaps the most heavily) Democratic side of town. Yes, those with a real interest in these races had the opportunity to vote early, which was more convenient for most (including me). Still...

And what about any of that predicts, hints, or so much as infers the imminent collapse of western civilization? Moreover, what reason, other than stroking your undeserved ego, do you have to support the idea that the whole of western civilization is dependant on you getting your way?

Of that number, how many were Republicans who cared enough to show up and vote?

Ten. That's right, ten.

I fear that Western civilization does not have long to live.


And yet western civilization did just fine during all those centuries before there ever was a republican party. Claiming that civilization itself depends on a single political ideology, one which you also hold yourself, is nothing more than blatant and unchecked arrogance on your part.

Good.
You have restored my faith in the sanity of humanity.
If the fate of the world had been dependant on the American Republican party, we would really be boned.

Western civilization is doing just fine and doesn't revolve completely around the USA.

Well, you might have a problem then.

It just never occurs to the poor thing that sane people have pretty much given up on the GOP. A big part of that is that we are figuring out it's a bad idea to allow future plans to Raptards who don't Believe in the future. The utter incompetence of the modern GOP hasn't helped either.

I thought you guys WANTED the world to end...

Shadow Boxer

Wow. Civilization's going to end because only ten people agreed with him at a specific time and place?
Seems a little overly dramatic.

Muhahahaha! Now that a tiny little piece of shit town in the middle of Bumblefuck is in my grasp I shall enact all sorts of havoc such as crank calling people in the middle of the night and tipping over their cows!

Ten. That's right, ten.

Sits back... Packs pipe with some good weed... Lights up... toke-toke.. Ahhhh... Ten you say? Woohooh!

"Of that number, how many were Republicans who cared enough to show up and vote?

Oh, I'm sure there were more than ten. They just happened to be ashamed to admit they're Republicans for obvious reasons and I can't say I blame them.

"I fear that Western civilization does not have long to live."

Yes. Of course. All of Western civilization is going to collapse because the U.S. Republican Party can't get their shit together and stop embarrassing those they represent, thus causing the non-lunatic Republicans to either switch parties or lie about their affiliation. Obviously the U.S. encompasses the whole of Western civilization and everyone else are godless liberal commie pinko socialist Marxists hell bent on destroying Rapture Ready. Or something.
