"The Republicans lost because they were too conservative." "No, not conservative enough." "They lost because they disappointed the Religious Right." "No, because they are too tied to the Religious Right."
I'll tell you why they lost: <5>McCain/Soros.
Ever since the passage of McCain/Feingold, money has poured into organizations such as Move on.org demonizing Republicans, painting a portrait of them as the incarnation of evil. The ads have had as their goal one thing: leaving a sour taste in the mouth of the electorate over anything Republican, conservative or religious. It has worked. The soft Republican, like Chaffe, went down with the tough Republican, like Santorum.
These ads, paid for by George Soros, Peter Lewis and other multi-millionaire Leftists are the direct result of, and have been made possible by, the passage of McCain/ Feingold which opened the door to unlimited spending by left wing fat cats in behalf of liberal candidates and causes. Until its passage, contributions were, basically, limited to the political parties and candidates themselves, but with a cap. Until the passage of McCain/Feingold, a cap was placed on how much Soros could underwrite in his lust for power and influence.
Johnny McCain has made it possible for George Soros and other billionaire transnationalists to effect and determine the outcome of our elections and thus U.S. destiny, indeed world destiny. And that is exactly what the wealthy internationalists have always craved.
Certainly, McCain was aware that if the most liberal member of the Senate, Russ Feingold, was pushing a piece of legislation its purpose was not to help conservative causes but the far left ones that are Feingold's life's mission. Indeed, Feingold had a hard time finding a sponsor across the aisle willing to proffer the "bipartisan" aura he needed to gain passage for this liberal dream.
Feingold understood, as we now all do, the Achilles heel of Johnny McCain. To wit: I am the "cleaner" and wiser Republican. I stand out from the pack. "Take the dirty money out of politics" became McCain's slogan. He did, and now we have the "clean" money of George Soros and Peter Lewis, so clean that it can be spread around, infinitely, for every left wing cause. It was noble, a Campaign Finance "Reform", so befitting of Mr. Noble.
The President did not veto it. We didn't fight it, assured that it would be overturned by the Courts as "limiting free speech." But, it wasn't overturned. Everyone passed the buck hoping that the next link in the process would stop it.
Democrats since Bill Clinton do one thing: they campaign everyday as if it is the day preceding an election. They demonize Republicans, our motives. The message they telegraph is not so much about our policy but our "sinister" goals. It is Halliburton, profiteering from war, mean-spiritedness, dogmatism over compassion. It is 24/7/365.
The purpose of the ads is not to illuminate their political positions. It is to destroy the Republican candidate and officeholder, the persona of the conservative.Through osmosis -- after a five year daily barrage of ads on radio, TV and in newspapers -- it appears to have worked.
Republicans, on the other hand, don't begin serious campaigning until the month before the election and have never learned the Goebbles technique so familiar, and comfortable, to Democrats :demonize the person, demonize the group. Do so everyday, until respectable people find it offensive to be associated with, let alone vote for, such terrible people. The Moslems are doing it against Israel, against Jews, and they are indeed swaying Europe, prevailing.
The paid- for-by-Soros ads contributed mightily to the Republican defeat. Having won the House and Senate, Democrats can save some money by no longer having to pay for as many ads since they will use their committee positions to demonize and destroy conservatives through Democrat witch hunts under chairmen who have a Torquemada/Inquisition-like intent toward those they are "investigating". Instead of paid ads, the mainstream media will for free, as news, nightly furnish Americans the audios and visuals from the congressional hearings -- the images -- that will make anyone associated with the Republican party look like a thief, greedy, a conspirator --- Al Capone.
Companies that contributed too much to Republican candidates will be hauled in and scrutinized under a series of bogus charges. The public will love it, for the 527/Democrats have spent the last few years laying the demonization groundwork regarding companies such as Exxon, Phillip Morris, Merck, Diebold, Halliburton, Walmart: big oil, big tobbaco, big pharma, giant retailers, etc. If "smart", these companies will mend their ways and learn their lesson regarding who should be the major beneficiary of their contributions. After all, inquisitors simply want and always accept repentance.
So thank you Johnny for your tireless efforts in behalf of McCain/Soros, clean money and motives, and "reform".You have helped bring your party down. Thanks for being the gang leader of the Gang of 14 which stood in the way of up-or-down confirmation of conservative justices. Hats off to you for redefining torture so that effective interrogation of jihadists is forever impossible. As a reward, you wish, now, to lead the party and become its Presidential nominee and standard bearer. I don't think so.
Wow. This is a great article.
Yet another reason to despise McCain (as if one was needed).
This guy "gets" it. Bookmarking.
Since the Pittsburgh market covers five congressional districts, I'm sure they weren't cheap . . . just cheap shots. In the end, Melissa was defeated by a pretty boy lobbyist bought and paid for by Soros.
It would have been nice if some of the RNC money spent to save total turds like Lincoln Chafee would've been spent against the Soros 527 ads. The sheeple need to learn what a real turd they have elected by supporting the Soros funded candidates.
McCain/Feingold was an act of self interest by the Mad Hatter. Perhaps the Hatter will run against it now, if it appears it will benefit him.
Not that it will amount to a hill of beans other than make a statement based upon principles (such as I did in 04 when I learned who this scumbag Lewis was) but I encourage anyone who has insurance with PROGRESSIVE which is owned by Lewis, cancel their policies AND send a note along with their reasons for the cancellation.
I did that in 04 and though I know that this loony leftists is a Billionaire and my few hundred dollars a year will not make a scintilla of difference, its the principle involved and made me feel a whole lot better--not to mention the fact that I saved $120 a year with GEICO.
We lose because the information systems are in Dem hands.
There are 3 ways our story gets told; school and universities, news media, and the entertainment media.
Conservatives do not have a significant presence in any of these. If you let your enemies tell your story, describe your philosophy, explain your motives, write your history, you are finished before you even start.
By the time we are filtered through a Democrat lens, its a surprise if we even recognize ourselves. Its a miracle if our kids don't have it indoctrinated out of them by the time they graduate school, and unless you are extraordinarily stubborn, clear-minded, or you live on Mars, the news and entertainment media will handle the indoctrination the schools missed.
So we have Rush and the internet, which is great, its not nothing, but 51% percent of Americans get their news from Oprah, and almost a hundred percent are educated in schools and universities taught by Dems, and their vote cancels yours.
Which is why I propose we pitch a sitcom or a skit-type show like SNL but funny where the show takes one component of their agenda and shines a light on the hypocrisy of that component through humor. If done through humor, a station like Comedy Central might buy into it.
Move On collected money from many individual donors. 699,255 donors are listed in the about us section of Move On Political Action.
Here is a quote:
"Because its a federal PAC, MoveOn.org Political Action cant accept donations greater than $5,000. And in fact, MoveOn.org Political Action is mostly funded by people who give less than $100 folks who dont have a lot of money but want to see a change. Through 2004, MoveOn.org Political Action raised approximately $11 million dollars for 81 candidates from over 300,000 donors."
Did you know the volunteers for Move On made over 7 million calls for GOTV?
True, but the RNC prefers the election of RINOs. I think Melissa Hart did something to warrant the attention she got from Soros et al. My husband says no, she was just vulnerable. My suspicions come from the carefully selected Hillary butt-boy who ran against her and won, not just some nobody with $.
Serious question for anyone? What in the world drives someone like Soros to stick his filthy hands so far into hard core leftist politics in this country? I mean, why doesn't the bastard just go off and enjoy his ill gotten billions and leave this country alone?
Now about the Jewish vote going for liberal Democrats with no love for Israel or anything Jewish....
McCain is an idiot and starts out each day proving it.
Remember that it tied up the Bush Administration for almost the entire time from the first inauguration until Jeffords jumped. McCain is a vindictive person only out for himself.
