There has got to be a national debate as to whether we want to turn this trend around; of course, we'll be labelled racists for raising the issue.
In the 1972 election...you had a very liberal Nixon (most Big Government programs created under his admin....opening of Communist China) against a very liberal McGovern.
1972 was not an election of right and left....it was an election of left and very left. McGovern scared a lot more people than Nixon did
72 was the election that made the label “ Liberal” so toxic the left still has to run from it . That’s when they put on the mask and began to pretend to be “ moderate” , “ centrist” , and later “ progressive”. To hide their REAL position.
And yet, we sit idly by hoping for a “savior”, just like ‘60/’70 era. The left burned our cities, stoned our police, burned draft cards, thumbed their noses at every sense of law and order, humiliated our troops, denied justice for terrorists and promoted socialism. An we did nothing.
The left today is circumventing every judicial/legislative precedence and those in congress charged with protecting and defending those very principles do nothing. We spend our energies whining to one another on the internet rather than suffer the inconvenience of courage.
Why do we expect the outcome to be any different?
the youth are actually more liberal today...yes it's true...look at old voting stats and educate yourself
we are barely holding on
folks here as usual in their ignorance will hive five when Romney likely wins in a few weeks
oblivious to the fact that as the years progress our ability to hold off the third world immigration demands and the utter leftist tilt of our culture will become harder and harder to hold back
this election we are nearing the point where we have to have nearly 2/3rds of WHITES vote in one direction to hold off the other demographic groups
even that will become not enough in time
we voluntarily let this happen...we either as a nation surrender and go leftist and even more politically correct about race or we actually fight down the road
because when the minority really does become the majority...does anyone here truly believe they will show such magnanimity towards those they feel formerly oppressed them?
it will be the second Reconstruction and the end of America as we know it.
i have watched this happen for many years
the Silent Majority battened the hatches
The GOP and the Scoop Jackson and Hard Hat Hippie Hating dems held the hard left back
the Moral Majority pushed back...
now we have the ever dwindling Majority doing the task and the wave against us grows bigger and bigger and we get smaller
we cannot turn enough of the other side in time...not with the culture we live in
people get ready and don't be sedated by a win by a milquetoast defender...it's just a small tactical win in a very long war..a war which we are short on troops and ammo and giving up territory daily
Will challenger Mitt Romney win a first term as President, because he provides a similar alternative?
No. If Romney wins it will be because voters have lost faith in Obama on the economy. It might be like 1980 or 1992 or 1976 or 1932.
But even if the election will be about "left wing cultural chaos," the relevant comparison would not be to 1972, but to 1968, when the challenger scraped in because of social issues, rather than to the landslide reelection of an incumbent.
Nixon easily won the support of the youth, and the youth were the most supportive of the Vietnam War.
