Splitting the Vote
The Democrat socialist left’s spin machine is working overtime.
Lacking a natural majority in this country, they have been working hard to still ensure they win elections and continue to push the country away from its roots in freedom toward its vision of a socialist, statist utopia.
In 2008 they fooled the nation by running more like conservatives than traditional liberal socialists. Immediately after taking office, however, they implemented their usual tax-and-spend game plan. Actually it was a clever variant of it: more like spend-and-tax. The American people were not fooled and the Tea Party movement was the result.
Going into the 2010 elections, they tried a strategy of trying to split the vote by creating fake third-party Tea Parties, remembering that Perot’s third party enabled Clinton’s victories. It didn’t work for Alan Grayson in Florida although it may have helped save Harry Reid in Nevada.
Now we are seeing the next attempt to split the vote by the rise of so-called no party parties.
The idea is this: the majority of Americans know whether they are socialist liberals or conservatives. Pundits and pollsters believe that winning elections means winning the votes of those in the middle.
James Poulos of PJTV did an interview with self-proclaimed centrist Solomon Kleinsmith of riseofthecenter.com. A few minutes into the interview Kleinsmith says his favorite president is Progressive Teddy Roosevelt. Even though TR claimed not to be a socialist, he also said that rich people should use their wealth for the public good. Read the Progressive Party platform. Not centrist–progressive.
I received an email from a reader claiming to be centrist. She wrote that we could just all get together in a “common sense party.” But then she gave away the game by criticizing the most common sense conservative I know, Sarah Palin. When I called her on it the mask dropped and I received a reply filled with the usual socialist sarcasm and ad hominem attacks.
Do not be fooled. There is no middle ground, just those who don’t know what the stakes are or have not made up their mind which side they’re on.
