WINNING an election doesnt just offer the chance to govern the country. It offers a chance to feel morally and intellectually superior to the party youve just beaten. This is an inescapable aspect of democratic culture: no matter what reason tells us about the vagaries of politics, something in the American subconscious assumes that the voice of the people really is the voice of God, and that being part of a winning coalition must be a sign that youre His chosen one as well.
This means the losing coalition must be doomed to wander east of Eden, and liberals have been having a good time with this idea of late. Those poor, benighted Republicans! runs the subtext of their postelection commentary. They cant read polls! They cant reach Hispanics! They dont understand women! They dont have a team of Silicon Valley sorcerers running their turnout operations!
Back in 2011, the Obama White House earned some mild mockery for its win the future slogan. But now that the president has been re-elected, the liberal conventional wisdom is that the Democrats have done just that that Republicans are now Radio Shack to their Apple store, The Waltons to their Modern Family, a mediocre Norman Rockwell to their digital-age mosaic.
Maybe its too soon to pierce this cloud of postelection smugness. But in the spirit of friendly correction or, O.K., maybe curmudgeonly annoyance let me point out some slightly more unpleasant truths about the future that liberalism seems to be winning.
Liberals look at the Obama majority and see a coalition bound together by enlightened values reason rather than superstition, tolerance rather than bigotry, equality rather than hierarchy. But its just as easy to see a coalition created by social disintegration and unified by economic fear.

I can add to that.
I know non-white immigrants here in Maryland who went to college (free naturally) then got a government job and they worship Obama as being like them. I mean it's Jim Jones worship. And one black immigrant who worships Obama told me that illegal immigration is nothing more than paper-work and that American blacks are lazy and don't want to work so we need illegals to work here.
Surprisingly I know black cleaning lady (yes a woman) who is real African American, roots in this country, who voted against Obama twice. She has told me many times that she thinks Obama is a con-man who doesn't know what he is doing.
And she doesn't like illegals being put in front of the line. I wish there were more blacks like her.
If Republicans were smart (which they obviously are not) they would split some of the Dem groups apart and play them against each other.
Douthat is a token conservative.
There have been a multitude of lib scribblers telling the Pubbies what they have to do....which is basically pander like they do. They think they don’t know something deep and meaningful, but they don’t really know anything. Just how to pander. The Democrat Party doesn’t stand for anything except legalizing immorality and giving away other people’s money. That’s it.
The Election proved nothing except Liberals made Thievery mainstream. They prefer to be Ruled, not Governed, thinking their Leaders will only control and economically enslave their Enemies (that would be people like us).
Gun Control, Socializing Healthcare and punitive Taxation are their weapons of choice. The Democrats Vote against their fellow Citizens because they feel entitled to what they possess. It is all very simple.
Governance requires Decency, which they lack. All that is required when dealing with the Vermin that supported Obama, (and they are Vermin, nothing more), is to ask them how much of someone else’s Labor and Property will be required to satisfy their needs?
You see, there is never enough and there never will be.
Liberal / Progressive Utopia is a dream, but they can never describe it without using platitudes such as Hope, Change and Forward. The Good Germans garnered more Votes than we did and there will be hell to pay once a match is lit.
Thanks for your interesting comment about fear being used to manipulate people into remaining in the bottom of the Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.
[Absolutely true that liberals benefit from disintegration and dysfunction in civil society.]
Though many liberals are unaware of it their philosophy and policies have evolved to insure that we don’t run out of the helpless, the nuerotic and the oppressed.
Obama has done such a great job in governing that none of his supporters even mentions what a great job he’s done. Their victory is mostly based on the one value they share, which is contempt for the rest of America who do not support the decline of America. And, apparently they didn’t even notice, while they maintained Obama in the White House they do not control all of the government. They want a totalitarian government, but they don’t have it and will be greatly disappointed because of not having absolute control.
I see plenty of folks doubling down on stupid right here at FR so those democrats have a head start over plenty of idiots on our side.
Conservatives look at Obama and see:
"The Obama coalition is a tight-knit group bound together by enlightened values reason, tolerance, diversity and equality......."
Hmmmmmmm.....sounds an awful lot like the "People's Temple." Rev Jones promised a "better life" and all the hope and change they could ever want, too.
It sure was thoughtful of Rev Jones to bring lotsa Kool-aid (and cases of cyanide) for the diverse crowd that blindly followed him to a remote South American jungle.....from which there was no escape.
Every manaical official govt act is dedicated to chipping away at the bulwark of American freedoms.
They are a virulent anti-American plague of religion haters.......vacant, surly Me-First humanoids who worship at The Church of Whatever Works For Me. Cadres of self-absorbed punks squatting in govt are clearly disturbed---obsessed with religious cleansing and kicking so/con Repubs to the curb.
The Ohaha savages duped the citizenry, led us over a multi-trillion dollar deficit cliff, into massive corrupt bailouts, and atrocities like amnesty.
Their motto: "Everything For Us--Nothing For You."
That same generation inculcated with moral relativity and situation ethics has segued into The Entitlement Generation---better known as "Pay Me--I'm a Victim.
We need to remember that the Obamanoids are ruthless predators w/ no empathy for others and no remorse, anti-social psychopaths who recognize no moral boundaries--aggressively going after what they want, irregardless of the consequences to others.
These people are even scarier in triumph, when they've clearly mocked democracy and stolen the election
Paraphrasing Saul Alinsky----the author of evil anti-religious satanism......"they do not have a fixed truth -- truth to them is relative and changing..... they are free from the shackles of dogma."
“The sun is shining brightly for them now.”
We’ll get to see what prolonged exposure to sunshine does
to lying, murdering, adolescent, psychotic scu*bags.
You are welcome.
That really was a great post.
Thank you. Please feel free to use it when arguing with Democrats.
Great post, blue.

Dullards who don’t want to win
” Surprisingly I know black cleaning lady (yes a woman) who is real African American, roots in this country, who voted against Obama twice. She has told me many times that she thinks Obama is a con-man who doesn’t know what he is doing.”
Blacks outside of the United States have much more in common with your average white guy here. They weren’t taught to hate us like American blacks have been.
