I agree. People are increasingly seeing the paradise lost in pursuit of the great progressive leftocracy. What we are missing here and what is stifling what should be a conservative dominance from sea to shining sea is the lack of a vehicle. When conservatives run nationally they are immediately running against not just the Democrat party, not just the progressives in the Republican party, but also against the great media and academic complex. That we win at all shows the conservatism does have a basis in reality that is often deeper and more resonant that the powers of propaganda. We need to change the game we need to speak boldly of liberty and what it means for a common person and the plight of their children. We need to tell stories like Reagan that touch the mind but are driven home with the heart. We need to speak to the better natures of a mother or father who wants to see a better life for their children but is fearful as to how. Make people see the possibility not in what the government can do for them but in what they can accomplish themselves.
Agree, but more and more, average Americans see the big picture of the interconnected web of Socialist/Liberal/Commies in all of our major institutions, and are correctly identifying them as the ruling power class who are ultimately responsible for all of the worsening conditions we've been enduring for decades.
The fops, lapdogs, and fawning lackeys in the press and academia don't have the power over people's minds they once did. They've been lying to the people, promising every sort of utopian result since at least JFK's day, and what have we got? Economic and societal ruin everywhere we look. There isn't a single measurable survival metric that's doing better than it was in times long past.
People innately understand that those in power create the conditions we see around us, and though it may take the culture an exceedingly long time to firmly get a grip on it, eventually the truth is outed by the sheer mass of human experience and direct observation.
Even worse for the left, is that conditions in America have taken a huge downward turn since they've been in firm control of the government. Obama can stand up and blame George Bush and the Republicans until the cows come home, but there comes a point where the public grows sick of the blame game, and wants those in charge to produce some measurable results.
That time is now. 90,000,000 Americans of working age have left the workforce in recent years. How much longer do you think they're going to give Prissydent Pouty a pass on failing to do the things it takes to really get our economy working again? It's been five long years, and he's still making promises like he's running for office. The average man in the street is watching him and thinking to themselves what an empty husk of a pretender he is.
No, the Republicans aren't seizing the easy victory over this abysmal situation like they should, but I don't think it matters. I think there's a growing contingent of Americans who rightly see the establishment ruling class for what it is, and aren't blinded any longer by party labels. It's a relatively recent development in public consciousness which can't be countered by the perfumed princes in Washington in any way.
The people are now looking for a new class of representatives who reflect their beliefs and desires. People who share their dogged determination to evict the scoundrels who've destroyed so much, and begin the hard work of restoring what's good in this country.
