Posted on 10/19/2006 8:12:15 AM PDT by Conservative_Rob
Please forgive this vanity, but I don't know where else to go to ask this question.
Is there a coordinated and deliberate attempt by the media and Democrat plants at blog sites to distort and outright lie about everything concerning this election in order to manipulate voters?
I live in the heart of Santorum country in Pennsylvania, and now I'm being told that, even here, Casey is ahead. I don't buy it. I am feeling lied to and being taken for a fool.
No one I know has even the slightest thought of sitting out, or not voting, or even voting for the opponent in order to "punish" the Republicans. Everyone I know sees the improvement in the economy, knows the need to fight terrorism in the Middle East instead of here, and wants to fight illegal immigration at our borders and in the workplaces. They all know that the positions of the two major political parties are diametrically opposed on all of these issues. They see a clear and distinct difference between the Republicans and Democrats.
So, where are these millions of anti-Republican voters? Am I to believe that Americans are so stupid as to vote for the Communist Party because of Mark Foleys instant messages to adult sexual partners?? Is the political process in this country so broken that voters can be led around like little sheep and tricked into voting for whomever the media tells them to??
I am convinced that the internet is being targeted by the Democrat party by flooding conservative message boards with fake messages from supposed disenfranchised conservatives to promote discord and a defeatist atmosphere. DON'T BUY INTO IT!!! As Rush says, Why would anyone use a strategy of defeat in order to win??
My prayers are for a Republican gain in both houses. If, as has happened in the past, the Democrats do not win like the news media has told us it would, I want an investigation into the manipulative media practices of the pollsters and the major news outlets into their use of inaccurate and outright fraudulent new stories (i.e., fake and skewed polls) to attempt to manipulate the outcome of an election. I equate the political news reporting this election season to an effort to tell Republican voters that their election will be held on Wednesday instead of Tuesday in order to reduce crowding at the polls.
If the medias use of fake polls and selective reporting is successful in changing Congress, then the future of this Republic is in question, and the day of the revolution will be that much closer. I cant believe that the so called hard nose conservatives who see no good in the current activities of the Republican party want to send this country several steps closer to a Socialist or Communist peoples paradise in what looks like a 7 year olds temper tantrum.
I am a hard nose conservative who supported Pat Toomey over Arlen Specter, and I see plenty to fault the Republican party with, but I will not simply take my marbles and go home because Im not getting my way. I am angry that there wasnt a legitimate Republican primary in Pennsylvania this year, but I wont sit out the election just because the party leadership in this state is somewhat corrupt and needs changing. Rick Santorum is a good senator and deserves to be reelected. He is not perfect, but he is a lot more conservative than Harry Reid, Ted Kennedy, Chuckie Schumer, and Hillary Clinton, and I will not allow my actions or inactions to promote their Socialist, defeatist, agenda one little bit. Why would anyone who believes in limited and responsible government do anything that would result in overbearing and irresponsible government??
If you look at the turnout at the primaries, the Republicans showed up in much greater numbers than the Democrats. They know this, so their only hope to win is to reduce the number of Republican voters on November 7. Show them that you can not be manipulated. Go out and VOTE!!!
Of course there is a coordinated and deliberate attempt by the media and Democrat plants at blog sites to distort and outright lie about everything concerning this election in order to manipulate voters. That is the only way they think they can win. They certainly can't win on their ideas and policies.
The MSM is clearly on the Dems' (and, deliberately or not, the terrorists') side, in terms of what they report and how they report it.
Polls sample a higher and higher percentage of Democrats, to skew results.
They are trying to discourage us.
Things are not as bleak for the Republicans as they make it sound, but we face a huge challenge this time around.
If the people who vited Republican in 2004 do it again this year, we should be in decent shape.
So PLEASE do what you can, folks!
Tony Snow on election coverage: 'These stories almost look like suppression efforts to bring down Republican morale'...
You are a conservative. Therefore, you MUST understand that you are not interested in this election. You are tired of the BS. You are tired of the Foleygate, spending, and lack of border enforcement.
You are NOT going to vote.
Now... your eyelids must be getting heavy...very heavy... in fact, you feel very warm and relaxed... very heavy... repeat after me... . your arms are heavy...you cannot lift them... I am a conservative and I will not vote... I am a conservative and I will not vote..I am a conservative and I will not vote... I am a conservative and I will not vote..
Now, I am going to snap my fingers and when I do, you will change the channel to a comedy, relax, forget that you read this, and most importantly, you will throw your absentee ballot in the trash and get a soft drink.
Of course. The media tried the same trick in 2004. Lied about exit polls on election day.
They began all of the election return broadcasts with "like his father, Bush's downfall was the economy". 10 minutes into the broadcast it was clear he was NOT out.
Let the Lamestream media lie, distort, and bias their reporting all they want - it will make November 8th (when the Republicans STILL control both houses) all the more sweet. Look for Perky Katie and the rest of the leftist shills in the media to be sporting their black mourning garb that day...
Why would this election be any different than past elections?
At what point is their FCC license in jeopardy for their distortion and campaigning? Manufactured news (whether it is forged National Guard memos or phoney poll samplings) should be examined.
I'm certainly more affected by this than I am steroids in baseball.
I a word, yes. And its more coordinated, open, manipulative and downright evil than I've ever seen it before. I think people see through it more, too.
"So, where are these millions of anti-Republican voters?"
------ have you checked your local cemetery. They rise from the dead on Halloween and then return to the grave after the November elections, until needed again next year.
The myth that we are staying home is a combination of wishful thinking and a campaign tactic to promote to backwoods Christian fools that they should stay home.
I have been feeling the same way.
YES, there is a coordinated effort among that unholy alliance. The facts are indisputable! Consumer confidence is high, the economy is roaring, the Dow is passing 12,000 and yet the polls show President Bush's popularity continues to fall. Why?
Because the activist MSM has been working with Democrats (think: ABC/Foley, or Oprah/Obama) to provide an UNRELENTING stream of negative information. No matter how good the news is, the MSM is actively writing stories and headlines from a decidedly negative vantage point. It is not even in dispute. There are a myriad of daily examples to provide empirical evidence.
The MSM may not be in direct collusion with the Democrats, but they are working very very closely in their shadow and know exactly what they are doing.
Ever since RATher got caught... and no DA ever followed up with an investigation... the DBM felt it had no reason to tell even the slightest bit of truth anymore.
They can't do it without our cooperation.
Stick it to the Democrats and VOTE.
