In Psychology there is a word called "defeatism" which is a psychological attitude of losing the game before it is over.[flash=]http://dictionary-psychology.com/index.php?a=term&d=Dictionary+of+psychology&t=Defeatism[/flash]
Defeatism is acceptance of defeat without struggle. In everyday use, defeatism has negative connotation and is often linked to treason and pessimism, or even a hopeless situation such as a Catch-22. The term is commonly used in the context of war: a soldier can be a defeatist if he or she refuses to fight because he or she thinks that the fight will be lost for sure or that it is not worth fighting for some other reason. Again in connection with war, the term is used to refer to the view that defeat would be better than victory. The term can also be used in other fields, like politics, sport, psychology and philosophy.(hypothetically)
If I were in Wi. and I had not yet made it to the voting booth
to stand in a long boring line of waiting; I would probably NOT go vote once I turned on MSNBC and saw that my guy was the projected LOSER
. I'd get pissed of and say "Forget it, lets go have a beer."
And go to the bar instead of the voting booth.
So yeah, YoSmite I smell what you're stepping in. It is a bunch of BULL SHIT that the TV is allowed to PROJECT a winner
. If they were not ALL ReTHUGlican OWNED, I would hope that a democratic television station would put out propaganda that told voters to:GO VOTE! YOUR VOTE COUNTS. IT'S NOT OVER TILL YOU VOTE!VOTING IS VICTORY!VOTING IS YOU'RE ROLE IN GOVERNMENT!
But no, those trout turds use the psychology of DEFEATISM by projecting that so and so is a loser and jack-ass is winning at a whopping 60% straight out of the gate. "Damn, 60%? How could my piddly-ass vote change that prediction?"
We CAN NOT allow the psychology of defeatism
to affect our race. IT MUST be addressed, dealt with, and itself be defeated. [flash=]

Defeatism usually starts small and is hardly noticed. It is FEAR in disguise.
Democratic voters MUST dominate defeatism by changing that FEAR into EXCITEMENT and ENTHUSIASM for the voting process. USE the fear to motivate you to conquer the opponent.
"60%? 70%? Bring it
on because the game has just started and I UNDERSTAND the reSPUDlican game plan." THEY throw out lies to invoke DEFEATISM in voters.
DO NOT let them win at this game. In the next round...
GET OUT AND VOTE!
ARe YOU with us?
Then come people get to work FOR OBAMA!
THANK YOU LILA!!
[[[blank shocked face]]] staring into space and brain is saying WTF???
how could this happen? and how could this kind of crap be legal?
but thank you. i feel a little better after reading your post.
personally, last night i felt like it was the second worst night in my life. the first night was when i was raped. last night, this was right up there with pure grotesque money hungry evil souls, taking over wisconsin, with the next goal to take down the usa. wanting to throw up, take a fucking hot shower to get the crime and grime off of my heart and soul and my mind, eating some chocolate and ice cream to help drown out the lump in my throat, so i could at least sleep for a little while. before i had to get back up, face the world again in wi, with scotty at the helm.
however i still have to hold on to the rope that has a criminal john doe case attached on the other end and it will be pulled soon enough to pull scotty out of office and into the spotlight to prove that you can't do illegal acts to try to get elected. no matter who the fuck you are and no matter how much money you have in you wallet.
next time, i am keeping my legs together with an aspirin and not one fucking republican is going to get me.
