close to 100% of the media is controlled by the leftists

conservatives don’t win because people do not ever hear what the issues and positions actually are.

“close to 100% of the media is controlled by the leftists”

Absolutely correct. When you control the message, you control a significant portion of the vote. It doesn’t even have to be a big percentage. If 3% of voters switch their vote, a 51 - 48% ‘drubbing’ becomes a 51 - 48% win. If we won by that margin we’d be talking about how liberalism was rejected. Instead, we are talking about how the nation is dead. It’s not, at least not yet, and we can put this back together.

The democrat secret is putting ‘pieces’ together. A certain percentage of women, a certain percentage of the youth vote, a certain percentage of the casual voters who get their news from MSM outlets and who don’t research the issues, a certain percentage of the elderly that have been scared about the loss of Medicare etc.. Add those to the loyal minority vote, the union vote, and the public employee vote, and you have a winning coalition. This is what they depend on, which is why they fight so hard to discredit anyone who might pull significantly from any of their key demographics (e.g. any women candidate, and any minority candidate).

The bottom line is that they are very vulnerable, but the strategy has to be correct, and it has to be aggressive. We need to find ways to split their coalition, and make them play defense.

Media hubs the world over are based in major cities with most workers living within an hour commute range. High density living manufactures leftists out of any demographic. As cities grow to the size that everything within commute range is high-density it becomes impossible to hire a politically balanced staff to match the general population. However the internet changes everything. Media hubs can now spawn mini-hubs anywhere. They can now follow the white flight out of the high crime cities and gain a competitive cost advantage.

Conservatives inherently don’t seek power to control others.
Leftists do.

They’re inherently more aggressive, and that’s why they are winning.
