Will Republicans stop using straw polls because of Ron Paul? video



Poor GOP: Congressman Ron Paul keeps winning straw polls! This video is from April 8, 2010 but it amuses me so I'm publishing it here in case you missed it...and the GOP apparently needs all the hints it can get.

Another 'in case you missed it': the Secondary Progressions of both the Democratic and Republican Parties set for Halloween 2009, with dual charts displayed (click image to enlarge.)

As you know, the R Party had its Secondary Full Moon (a time of winding down and reeling in one's sights for you've extended as far as you can go - hint to the Rs!) on Feb 18, 2005.

Right now, April 9, 2010, the R Party is in its Disseminating phase of the Sun and Moon relationship, a phase of putting out the info. This period was entered on May 19, 2009 with Sec Moon 1Leo17; next phase (3rd quarter: the crisis in consciousness stage) arrives April 29, 2013 with Sec Moon 20Vir28...approaching conjunction with US natal Neptune 22Vir25 about two months later.

The Rs' Sec New Moon 27Sag44 doesn't occur until June 23, 2020...assuming that the GOP still exists in some form by then.

Now here's the scoop on the Secondary Progressions of the D Party:

Sec New Moon Aug 3, 2006 @ 22Sag44;
Crescent stage: Oct 20, 2009 (current phase indicating crisis) with Sec Moon 11AQ00;
next phase: 1st quarter (crisis in action stage) begins on March 25, 2013 with Sec Moon 29Pis30 (conjunct Aries Point of Prominence.)

Therefore, if the Republican Party makes great strides in taking control of Congress in the November 2010 elections, this reluctant astrologer will be quite surprised because the Rs are on the downside of their progressed cycle with the Dems upper in theirs.

Got an opinion on the GOP's political prospects?

I like to check out the moon sign at the time of the election. On 2 November 2010 the Moon is in Virgo all day. The last time the Moon was in Virgo on an off year election was 8 November 1966. The GOP gained 47 seats in the House. The time before that was 3 November 1942 and the GOP gained 46 seats in the House. In both of these elections the Dems maintained control of Congress because of unanimous support in the South.

Curiously, both 1942 (FDR) and 1966 (LBJ) results suggested a reaction against the increase in federal power following the New Deal (with WW II raging) and the Great Society (and Vietnam growing hotter). Any similarity with the current Administration is, of course, totally coincidental.
