Deep beneath the Commonwealth, the People are getting angry.
There is a thick vein of conservatism that needs to be scratched.
It happened before; it WILL happen again
Charisma....... Reagan was elected and acceptable because of his likeability and believability. The lesson of 2012 is that being conservative is not only not enough, it is anathema.
There must a charismatic personality with the voice and message to charm. Wonkish recital of conservative virtues will not prevail in a national election.
If such a person threatens, he is destroyed by the press. Herman Cain is the archetype of that person.
Just yesterday there was a thread about Alabama being the “most conservative state” in the USA.
Now, that scares me. The most conservative state is 50.6% conservative, not even a full notch over one-half. In every other state, self-identifying conservatives are LESS than half the populace.
For every one American getting angry, there are some number of illegals coming in, getting ID, getting stuff, and voting Democrat. Pretty soon they won’t need dead people to win elections for them.
I see no hope. Conservatives are too in love with the law. They are more law-abiding than liberty-loving and certainly more law-abiding than freedom-fighting.
Some few, damn few, exceptions. The rest, they can think what they like and grumble at their keyboards, but they obediently pay their taxes to this evil government, and that is all, ALL that keeps it alive.
Preach it my brotha! You've got to rise uppah and testify!
We are here. We are p!$$3d. We will be heard. Read my tagline.
wrong my friend. since Reagan a vast army of people "in the public economy" has been created, that includes unemployment, income payments, disability, student loans, government unions. that number is now around 50% of the population, that's more than enough when you throw in green and pro abortion to make the government a permanent fixture until it actually breaks down. that will only happen when the dollar blows up.
