Our Democracy

Democracy is a sham never more in evidence than the elections in Florida.

It works like this: If the elites don’t get what they want, then a recount is in order.

Of course, the recount in Florida is only coming about because the “last minute ballots found” trick didn’t work. 

It won’t matter anyway.

We delude ourselves so badly.

We are are willing to believe anything.

Our current delusion is the supremacy of technology.

We want to believe that an unscrupulous person cannot link their computer to the voting machine and add in 37,543 votes supported by an equal number of registrants complete with bogus addresses, birthdates and signatures.

Well, as it turns out these voting machines can be tapped into via the Internet through a variety of ways. They aren’t foolproof.

Here is to the Pollyannas.

We don’t really need an opinion from a computer analyst, though, do we?

No, we only need to understand that human nature has not changed.

Machines may not lie, but we still do.

Now, here is a fact to consider:  I have had numerous bank accounts, equity and credit, for the last 45 years. The bank has never made one mistake on my various accounts in that period of time. Not even a penny.

I’ve had many, many mortgages held by many, many banks, and never once has a mistake been made on my mortgage.

I keep hoping that there will be a glitch in the system and that my mortgage will disappear.

I’ve had no such luck.

How is it possible for a government to regulate a financial system that never makes a mistake by even a penny on my banking, credit cards and mortgages over decades, yet the same government can’t come up with a foolproof voting system.

They can’t because they don’t want to. They want the corruption at the voting booth.

A corrupt voting booth is instrumental for putting into office the people who they, the corporate elite, who control both parties, have chosen.

Sure, authorities.  The system is sound.

Whatever you say.

Overplaying Their Hand

One of the hallmarks of the left is that they always overplay their hand.

They can not fix themselves.

It’s part of who they are.

Many years ago I was watching a program about the history of politics in America.  I was enjoying the program.  It seemed legit.  Just before the program ended, the narrator referenced Richard Nixon, then added with dramatic emphasis: “The only President to resign the Office of the Presidency in disgrace.”   Leftists love to add that redundant flourish to assure you that it wasn’t a dog catcher who resigned the Presidency.

When I heard that, I let out a giant ugggghhhhhh as I realized I had just permitted myself to be force fed  two hours of leftist propaganda.  It was two hours of my life that I wasn’t going to get back.

I was in my 20s and it was my first exposure to the left overplaying its hand.

The left can’t help it. Being smug and sanctimonious is part of who they are.

And they can’t resist throwing in a cheap shot against Nixon, or Reagan or Bush.

They always think they’re right. And it will always be that way.

They become incensed when people dare to think differently.  How dare they?

They believe their own bullshit so fervently that they ignore reality staring at them in the face.

They are the ultimate zealots, the ultimate true believers.

To reinforce their beliefs they construct crazy polling data that supports their views.

One such poll came out yesterday which showed that early voting by young voters was up 500%.  

500%?   Is this number believable?

This poll is happily embraced by the left. It serves two purposes.

First, it pleasures the left; it’s an orgasm of sorts. “Young voters are up; young voters vote our way; we will necessarily win.” As to what would singularly motivate a leftist to get up and vote two weeks before the election as opposed to Election Day is not discussed.  Perhaps these early voters are overwhelmingly the young people on the right who tend to plan ahead.

Second, it presents the election as a fait accompli to their opponents.  “Do you see, conservatives, it’s all over. There is no need for you to vote.”  People on the left can not resist the fait accompli.  They do it all the time.  They did it with Hillary in 2016; they do with it global warming – “settled science”; they are doing it now with the midterm elections.

The latter point  illustrates a classic case of the left overplaying its hand.

Will it work?  

Not a chance.

Conservatives are disciplined.

Conservatives will do what they always do, whether they want to or not, even if they are the only person in the room to do so.

They will vote.

Republican Victory

If it’s one thing the media is good at it is manipulating the poll readings before an election.

Right now they’re indicating a Democratic Party win.

That’s not the way I see it.

The Republicans should win in both the Senate and the House.  One year ago I thought that the Republican Party was going to gain seats.  I still guardedly think so although I am less optimistic as to the size of the gains.

The only obstacle to gaining seats at this point is the failure of the President to accomplish anything.

This President has been an a failure in attaining his goals. With the exception of executive orders what has he accomplished?

The individual mandate can be  reversed easily by a Democratic Congress and President. All his executive orders can be reversed. The free trade agreements can be re-entered.   I don’t see a damn thing that he’s done to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States. I think his economic recovery is a fraud backed up by cooked numbers.  Foreign wars? Hah!  We’re still there.

That stated, why do I think the Republicans will win?

First, the baby boomers are getting older. The baby boomers still make up a significant portion of the population. As people get older they become more conservative.

Second, the Democratic Party has become more radicalized. I evidence this by the increased harassment of politicians that you see in restaurants and the rise of Antifa. But it’s not just that. It’s the failure of responsible Democratic Party leaders to denounce these radicals.

Third, the Democratic Party has become the party of obstruction rather than the party of ideas. Their whole goal for the last two years has been to obstruct Trump, not to offer anything new.

Fourth, the bending of traditionally Democratic leaders to the right in order to win an election.  When you see senators such as Claire McCaskill denouncing the “crazy Democrats”  in order to win an election that’s an ominous sign.  It signals that she is in trouble and that she knows it. Where was she three, six and twelve months ago denouncing the radical left?

Fifth, the lack of foot soldiers within the Democratic Party.  When the Deep State murdered Seth Rich, they lost their foot soldiers. Foot soldiers talk to each other, especially about the corruption which Seth Rich revealed to Julian Assange.  You need foot soldiers to get out the vote. What the Democratic Party was left with was a corrupt, aging leadership and a rabble, a raging mob, at the bottom.  The leadership can’t control their mob from harassing politicians at restaurants; they won’t be able to get them to go vote next Tuesday.

Sixth, the Democratic Party has no base in Middle America. Their working class base is now solidly with Trump.  Who the Democrats are stuck with now are Starbucks literati, Marxists and illegal immigrants.

Seventh, the failure of the Democratic Party to admit to itself its own corruption (which is why Seth Rich leaked those documents) and its own culpability for losing the 2016 election.  Instead they covered it up with a bogus Russia story.  They fooled no one but themselves.

The Republicans should win handily.  I will be surprised if they do not.

In a way, this will be good for the country.  It will be good because Trump will now have no excuse to not prosecute a conservative agenda which he will not do.  He won’t because he’s a globalist posing as a nationalist.

When he does not do such, the conservatives will then have good reason to work with the Democrats to ask him to leave.

So it can be a win for everyone.
