I expect informed reasonable responses from those who call themselves Republicans. I don’t find it amusing that the Democrats blow off their own lack of morality and the Republicans can’t figure out a way to use that to their own advantage.
Ivan Pavlov’s research discovered that dogs’ not only salivated at the sight and smell of food, but that the salivating reflex was a learned response not an automatic physiological process. Between the years 1997 and 2000, more than 220 articles appearing in scientific journals cited Pavlov’s early research on classical conditioning. Perhaps our Pavlov Republicans should read some of this research.
The dogs’ in Pavlov’s experiments quickly associated the scientists’ white lab coats with food. In a short time just the sight of a white lab coat produced the learned response.
Pavlov then tested the steady tick, tick of the metronome followed up with food. It wasn’t long before the dogs began salivating at the neutral stimulus of the steady tick of the metronome provoking the conditioned response of salivation. The key point being that the response was conditioned, or learned. This type of behavioral psychology is what Cloward & Piven, Saul Alinsky and every Communist dictator has applied to manipulate human beings throughout history. It’s clear the Democrats learned these techniques well.
Our Pavlov Republicans’ have not only been well trained but have shown an amazing lack of cognitive abilities needed to defend themselves against it. They have become blinded with the need to be accepted by the opposition and the media until the very thought of that acceptance starts them salivating. I wonder if the Pavlov Republicans’ can change these learned responses in time to save the Republic. I wonder too if they still have the mental ability to even recognize that they behave like Pavlov’s dogs.
When the Democrats’ go into attack mode it’s like the tick, tick of the metronome which the conditioned GOP instantly react to. Let one sensible conservative voice speak out and the GOP loyals will race down the halls and head for the waiting microphones. “Glory be!! a social conservative has spoken”. “Please forgive us for not tackling this person to the ground before they could open their mouth”, (conditioned response). “They do not speak for our Party” then begins the salivating in anticipation of being re-accepted.
If the Pavlov Republicans’ could recognize their conditioned responses then the Democrats would have to live with their usual buffoonish statements and be forced to defend their failed policies. But no, can’t have that. The Pavlov Republicans’ will save the opposition from themselves every time. Many of these Pavlov-trained enablers are on committees overseeing our military. Need I say more on that subject?
Heaven help the conservative Republicans from the guilt laden, finger-wagging GOP. How many conservative members have felt the sting of the Pavlov Republicans once they see those white lab coats? How can we trust in leaders who only react according to their conditioning?
That dogs can be conditioned/trained in such a way is not shocking however, that men and women in control of government seem to be conditioned in this way is shocking and sad. At the very least the dogs’ in Pavlov’s experiments received a satisfying result from their conditioning, which is why it worked so well. So, it would seem that the GOP is satisfied with the results of their conditioning. Acceptance by the liberal elite and their media complex is the most satisfying treat in the world for this group of Republicans.
It doesn’t matter that these actions leave all thinking Americans with a bad taste in their mouths. To recognize that reality they would have to be smarter than the family dog and so far the Pavlov Republicans have not shown any indication that they are mentally superior in that area.
If our Republic stands a chance to return to our founding principles we simply cannot have our government filled with Pavlov’s dogs with an (R) after their name. Vote and vote wisely. Discern. Live free, think free and behave free. It’s we free thinking Americans who built this country and it’s the same free thinking Americans who will keep her. Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address says it beautifully. This is OUR country and our government.

Our Republic needs a re-founding. We are, at this moment, living through a turning point in America’s history. We are the people future historians will write about, the people our descendants will read about. What story will the historians document? Our victory over tyranny, as our forefathers’ secured, or tyranny victorious over freedom?
