I think you are over-thinking this one. No massive secret conspiracy required.

Our culture-creating organs have been almost entirely controlled by leftists for 50 years. Elections are merely expressions of the popular will, which is largely formed by the culture.

We are just seeing the consequences of 50 years of the Right ignoring the culture while focusing on politics. It worked for a while and we had some victories, notably the (possibly temporary) defeat of Communism. But we are now beginning to pay the price for abandoning the culture.

How could you possibly have arrived at such reasoning?

Don’t you know that “it’s the economy, stupid!” ??

Jes’ kiddin’, of course.

Here’s a direct personal question:
When Patrick J. Buchanan stood before the Republican National Convention some years ago, and declared that there was a cultural war in this country, how did you regard his remarks? (Aside: many Republicans and even conservatives then mocked him as a nut, as do many of this forum still do, today)

That cultural war was ragin’ back then, and it’s burning even hotter today. And the wind is NOT fanning the flames in our favor.
