I was sitting on my throne… yes THAT one, and it came to me.
Just how the hell do the Democrats win?
It’s quite simple really, once I put the ‘ooomph’ into my thoughts.
They are a conglomeration of diehard, rabidly devoted, one issue ego-maniacs that do not acknowledge the opponents point-of-view.
The Republicans are a like a pair of fighting siblings. They know how to behave and they mean well, but they still get on the wrong side of Dad’s belt.
The GOP finds itself fighting on several fronts, divided against a myriad of combatants coming from every angle and every conceivable issue. From Illegal Immigration, to Gay Rights, to Austerity and Abortion and “Womens Rights” the GOP is standing with one hand behind its back flailing madly back and forth with its shield trying to fend off the overwhelming onslaught of ‘progressive’ minions trying to exorcise righteousness and proven governmental practices from the Republic.
We saw this with the Civil Rights Movement (which was the last true bonafide righteous uprising) where people took to the streets in protest over mistreatment. We saw it with Vietnam, the ERA, various union strikes in the 70’s, and more importantly, the exclusion of God from schools and the infiltration of liberalism into the Primary School System.
The GOP tried to hold the ground on ALL fronts while systematically losing ground to each movement. Unions died once companies started their overseas investments. The ERA died not from anything the GOP did, but once Gov’t funded abortions became legal , you saw ZERO push for more “womens rights since”(maybe a token push on wages, but NOTHING like the effort put into the Abortion fight).
The GOP has always been on the defensive, trying to keep the progressive surge in check and muted. But, as we’ve seen, the tidal wave of ignorance brought from poor education was brought to the fore with the election and Reelection of Obama.
So what is the answer for the right wing?
Education. Involvement. Dedication. Loyalty. Common defense of the common man. The Twitter wars between different elements of the rising right must diminish. We are on the SAME side. Atleast we’re supposed to be.
The opposition are DEMOCRATS. We need to support all those that carry the “Do not tread on me” banner. The Freedom banner. The LIBERTY banner. We’ll have some trolls and some infiltrators, but we then strike back hard and demand proper debate for their arguments.
