A nation "divided ",we hear those words all the time. They say our nation is divided because the wascally Republicans, more specifically, those wascally conservatives, are just intransigent and unyielding in the daily politic of getting along. Yes, we hear it from the media types, we hear it from the democrats, and we hear it now even from some of the Republican establishment types. They say we need to change, we need to be more "tolerant", they say we need to be less "partisan". We are supposed to give up our positions from homosexual marriage to abortion to religion and guns. We are only going to survive if we become, gasp! Them!
Liberals and their stenographers, formerly the "journalists" of America, have a constant drumbeat on our heads to become what they want us to be. Now why would they be helping us I ask? Why would our opposition be so ready to give us advice to steal their constituencies away? Why is it they think their ways are the only ways to live life and govern a "free" country? Why are they so helpful? I mean look at them a bit more closely regarding politics and campaigning for power. Why would they risk convincing us to become them and we gather their power and send them packing. It makes no sense. So why are they and their stenographers so adamant?
It is a ploy, plain and simple. They know their constituencies will never move across the proverbial "aisle" so it has to be a ploy. I think it is simply a Mohamed Ali ropa-dope move. By constantly keeping the Republicans in the newspapers and TV shows and stating how "partisan" the opposition is, they can create (and have with the stenographers ) a brand of intolerance and exclusivity. R's are just a bunch of rich old farts, not interested in bringing into their ranks women, minorities, homosexuals and illegal immigrants. The liberals point out these lies on a daily basis and then give us all a dose of "how to" fix our shortcomings. Totally a crock in my view. They know the stenographers will do their bidding and publish this strategy every day.
Republicans and conservatives are nothing like the democrats and their lackey's in the press make us out to be. Of course the general population of America will not know we are the greatest donors to the poor in the history of the planet. And that the democrats are the cheapest. If one compares the social giving of Americans, there is no comparison in the superior giving positions of R's. But because the press will not "drumbeat" the true facts the facts become lost quickly.
Scott Brown, the former US Senator from Massachusetts is to me the best example of the fallacy of the lefts lie about "partisanship". Here was a man that was elected to the Senate as a registered Republican in a state 80% democrat. With the help of the Tea Party he overcame the lefty dynamic and became their Senator. Then when re-election came about the democrats ran a loony woman, an extreme commie professor, against Brown. Now Brown was a "middle of the road" Senator so as to better represent his lefty state. He upset the mainstream R's in the Senate with his votes on some issues and even I was sometimes upset with him. But, here was a man trying to be "bipartisan" and I got it.
Well, you would think Brown was a right-wing fascist according to the democrats of his state. They could not support him regardless of his positions. His positions mirrored both party's. So, they went after him and defeated him. The "bi-partisan" lie shoved out by the left is easy to see. Plain and simple. It happens all over the country. One needs only to look at any major city races to see the lie of "bi-partisanship". I am hard pressed to find any or even a few, R's elected in a major urban setting. If the lie the left tells was actually true wouldn't we see a few R's?
So, for me the main issue is a simple undeniable fact in politics. Majority rules and achieving that fact is actually the most important act. Therefore, knowing that simple fact makes me the smartest person in the room I guess. No helpful advice from a liberal is true when it come to a "majority" of the chambers of elective office. It is all about the numbers. 50 percent plus one. So the next time you hear the left giving us advice on how to attract their constituencies, you will know it is total bullshit. Don't fall for it. In fact, work hard on your principles, and elect people reflecting those principles. Don't let the liberal "ropa-dope" slow you down.
